Institutional solutions towards addressing human rights and developmental problems are often grounded in empirical analyses, with a predominant focus on macroeconomic indicators with socio-political dimensions. While economics is the study of choices and incentives, purely analytical approaches often tend to ignore the human dimension and the human basis for those choices. Policies that have their basis in such empirical measures whilst ignoring the human dimension are at best incomplete. Uvin (2009), for instance, states that good human rights work does not automatically constitute human rights progress, and highlights the need ... market research, surveys and trends
The Effects of the Economic Crisis on Young People
Gennady Stolyarov II was my best student at Hillsdale College (where I taught from 2003-2006). We have kept in touch, and he recently alluded to how devastating the economic crisis has been on his generation. I asked him to elaborate, because in my circles things are bad, but mostly along the lines of, “Wow our household is cutting back because everything is so scary right now.” As you will see, things look different from the perspective of recent college grads. Note that when Gennady below describes his personal regimen and financial goals, I don’t think he’s bluffing; his description is consistent with ... market research, surveys and trends

Speech by Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the ECB at the conference “The ECB and Its Watchers” XII, Frankfurt am Main, 9 July 2010 Ladies and Gentlemen, It is a pleasure to be with you in this 12th edition of the ECB Watchers’ Conference. Today, I would like to consider where we are in the financial crisis and the economic recovery; to describe the emerging contours of the post-crisis order both in Europe and the wider world; and to reflect on what has been achieved by the global policy response to the crisis and what remains to be done.   We are now almost three years into the crisis. The development of the crisis was marked ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Economics Is Hard
In this essay, I argue that neither non-economist bloggers, nor economists who portray economics — especially macroeconomic policy — as a simple enterprise with clear conclusions, are likely to contibute(sic) any insight to discussion of economics and, as a result, should be ignored by an open-minded lay public . Yes, he really got the spelling error past whatever review this paper received.  That would be none, right? One wonders if the "or", however, is what he intended.  After all, if you can't spell, can you properly construct grammar to make your point clear? In the wake of the recent financial ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
