“The Financial Crisis and the Systemic Failure of the Economics ...
That is the title of a new paper in the latest issue of Critical Review, by Colander, Goldberg, Haas, Juselius, Kirman, Lux, and Sloth. The article is not yet online, but the abstract is here : Economists not only failed to anticipate the financial crisis; they may have contributed to it–with risk and derivatives models that, through spurious precision and untested theoretical assumptions, encouraged policy makers and market participants to see more stability and risk sharing than was actually present. Moreover, once the crisis occurred, it was met with incomprehension by most economists because of models that, on the one ... market research, surveys and trends


Development and Transition: How the crisis will impact human ...
While the global economy may be showing signs of recovery, questions about the human development impact of the crisis in Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) remain. As GDP falls with the economic crisis, what are the effects on poverty, life expectancy, health, and other development outcomes? We provide answers by analyzing historically observed empirical co-movements in income (per-capita GDP in purchasing-power-parity terms) and selected human development indicators during the past two decades in the region. 1 The resulting estimated income elasticities and the IMF’s publicly available GDP projections are ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

West Bengal releases three district human development reports
An in-depth study of three districts in West Bengal reveals that where you live can determine your well-being as there are wide variations in human development between districts and also between rural and urban populations. According to recent surveys, in the South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal gender gaps in literacy have been narrowing faster than the state average and more than one-third of women own land. In North 24 Parganas, however, the picture is mixed - with a rise in income and purchasing power in the ever-spreading urban areas, acute distress in the rural areas (in nearly 30 percent of rural households) and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Vantage Point: Beating Axles into Plowshares
As businesspeople, we have always been warned to diversify our clientele and services so that we don't suffer so badly when one client or one line of work no longer provides us the same (or any) income. But the fortunes of communities and cities often rise and fall due to a single focused purpose or industry. Witness Motor City, USA, also known as Detroit, Michigan. While also boasting a major port on the Detroit River (which connects Lakes Erie and Huron) and direct passage to Canada, it is for manufacturing that the city is probably best known at present (or at least, right after the Motown record label), and of all its ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

According to social conflict paradigm, alienation enhances social ...
Alienation is one of those terms that started off as a philosophical concept and yet has now become almost a part of everyday speech. In this process new meanings have been ascribed to it and old meanings have been reinterpreted and broadened, so that, at times, it is hard to tell exactly what it does mean – other than denoting a general feeling of being dissatisfied in some way. Although at times it appears to be part of the common currency of everyday speech, it is also apparent that it has a close connection with various schools of thought that identify themselves with Marx where it has consequently taken on a distinctly ...
