"Bureaucracy is the death of all sound work," said Albert Einstein, sharing a popular view about bureaucracy grinding progress to a halt. But it now appears that the organizing functions of bureaucracy were essential to the progressive growth of the world's first states, and may have helped them conquer surrounding areas much earlier than originally thought. New research conducted in the Valley of Oaxaca near Monte Albán, a large pre-Columbian archaeological site in southern Mexico, also implies that the first bureaucratic systems may have a lasting influence on today's modern states. The research by the ...
separated by periods of relative instability known as Intermediate Periods. Ancient Egypt reached its pinnacle during the New Kingdom , after which it entered a period of slow decline. Egypt was conquered by a succession of foreign powers in this late period, and the rule of the pharaohs officially ended in 31 BC when the early Roman Empire conquered Egypt and made it a province . The success of ancient Egyptian civilization stemmed partly from its ability to adapt to the conditions of the Nile River Valley. The predictable flooding and controlled irrigation of the fertile valley produced surplus crops, which fueled social ...

The German Genuis « Din Merican: the Malaysian DJ Blogger
By 1900, nearly everyone agreed that there was something special about the Germans. Their philosophy was more profound — to a fault. So was their music. Their scientists and engineers were clearly the best. Their soldiers were unmatched. Did this German superiority bode well or ill for the new century? Some foreigners served up dire warnings, but others were rapt admirers. Richard Wagner’s English son-in-law, Houston Stewart Chamberlain, even wrote a weighty tome arguing that the Germans were the only true heirs of classical Greece and Rome. Many Germans were happy to agree. After world war broke out in 1914, German ... market research, surveys and trends
The American Spectator : In Joco Jobitas
This is whats called "the Dirty Diaper" theory of economics. To wit; Something stinks to high heaven, but from all appearances, everything looks OK. It should not be difficult to develop and find out how many jobs were created with this so-called stimulus money. Anyone with half a brain can do it. Here is the formula: How mush was spent? Where was it spent? How many jobs were created? The reason they really don’t know the true job creation number, if any, is because they don’t know the answer to any of the above questions. If they did know, Joe Biden’s numbers and Obama’s numbers would be the same. And ... market research, surveys and trends

Sumerians
   Among the earliest civilizations were the diverse peoples living in the fertile valleys lying between the Tigris and Euphrates valley, or Mesopotamia , which in Greek means, "between the rivers." In the south of this region, in an area now in Kuwait and northern Saudi Arabia, a mysterious group of people, speaking a language unrelated to any other human language we know of, began to live in cities, which were ruled by some sort of monarch, and began to write. These were the Sumerians, and around 3000 BC they began to form large city-states in southern Mesopotamia that controlled areas of several ...

What is the historical development of the bureaucracy? How has it ...
Historical development of bureaucracy? Truly recorded would go back to Egypt or possibly India, well over 10,000 years ago, but bureaucracy began the first time someone produced enough crop that they needed to track how they traded. A family member probably would have been employed to track the volume of crop harvested, how much was lost to rot and rat, and how much was bartered and for what. In the earliest days, this person may have helped in the harvest, but as agriculture improved, individuals became more specialized, some might do "bean counting," while others made pots or baskets to contain the crops, while some could ...
