What explains developing countries’ greater economic volatility? This column documents the relationship between democracy and growth reversals. It argues that greater democracy, not higher income, is responsible for dampening economic volatility. Greater democratisation and economic diversification would reduce both dramatic declines and growth accelerations. The last twenty-five years have been a period of remarkable stability among developed economies. This stability, termed by some “The Great Moderation”, has been particularly noteworthy in its contrast with the instability experienced by developing economies. ...
owned; supply, demand, price, distribution, and investments are determined mainly by private decisions in the free market, rather than through a planned economy ; and profit is distributed to owners who invest in businesses . Capitalism also refers to the process of capital accumulation . There is no consensus on the precise definition of capitalism, nor how the term should be used as an analytical category. There is, however, little controversy that private ownership of the means of production, creation of goods or services for profit in a market, and prices and wages are elements of capitalism. There are a variety of ...
There are more than One Billion people living in South Asia today. The annual per capita expenditure on human priority areas of basic education, primary health care, family planning, safe drinking water, and nutritional programs is just $3 in Pakistan and $2 dollars in Bangladesh. East Asian nations have highlighted investment in Human Development as a key strategy of economic growth. This idea has unfortunately not reached the policy makers in South Asia. As a result, all countries in South Asia (except Sri Lanka) fall into the category of Low Human Development. Gender inequality and opportunities for women are very less.

Eurozine - The university in the twenty-first century - Boaventura ...
The reaction from universities to demands for reform – both from the private sector and society – has been a state of paralysis and resistance in the name of autonomy and academic freedom. The only way universities can recover from their crisis legitimacy, writes Boaventura de Sousa Santos, is through radical democratic restructuring. Countering the brain-drain from poorer to wealthy nations – so far the main result of the transnationalization of education – will only be achieved by embarking on a counter-hegemonic process of globalization creating genuine equality of access. In an essay published in the ... market research, surveys and trends

Mexico 2010: Enter the Detonators
In recent weeks, Mexican television viewers have been deluged with an advertisement in power rotation on all networks, including cable channels, from an apparently wealthy consortium called “Iniciativa México,” or, the Mexico Initiative. The ad features head coach Javier Aguirre of Mexico’s national soccer team (the original ad appears here ) strutting around the Mexico City monument known as the Angel of Independence, wearing a suit jacket and unbuttoned white shirt, noting that 2010 marks the bicentennial of Mexican independence and the centennial of the revolution of 1910. And, he encourages the people of the nation not to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Soul-searching for a liberal curriculum
A catalogue of these pressures would include the need to compete in the global knowledge economy and the imperative to meet policy goals set by governments in fields such as equity, research and development and, increasingly, trade. Australia's $17 billion export education industry is one of the nation's few green exports, one of the few sources of national income that does not leave the country in cargo containers. Underlying all these challenges is a fundamental uncertainty that has shadowed the university since the industrial age, but has never bulked as large as it does now: what is the university? The global ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
