But it’s not yet a done deal. There is some encouraging news on the jobs front, where the service sector is ticking right along, offering some cover to the dwindling band of optimists who think a recession can still be avoided. But pessimists have the heavier artillery on their side. The main component of ...
is a field of economics concerned with paying for collective or governmental activities, and with the administration and design of those activities. The field is often divided into questions of what the government or collective organizations should do or are doing, and questions of how to pay for those activities. The broader term, public economics , and the narrower term, government finance , are also often used.

The returns you earn from long-term investments in the share market are influenced by three factors, but of the three the compounding effect of the reinvestment of the dividends you earn is the most important, two asset managers say. While you, or your asset manager, can boost your returns by looking for undervalued shares and those likely to show good growth in earnings (profits) - the two other factors that influence your returns - your best bet is to seek out shares able to pay good sustainable dividends or a fund manager who will do it for you, research by asset managers shows.

However, the global recovery is likely to slow over the next six months and, human nature being what it is, fears of a double-dip are likely to intensify as weaker economic data and profit reports come in. I am optimistic this will turn out to be a false alarm but, in the meantime, I am keeping some powder dry in the hope of buying equities at attractive valuations later in the year.

55 (9), 2009, 1547-1555. There is a growing body of evidence of psychological influences on investor decisions. A relatively unexplored question is whether experienced and generally successful investors change their investment strategy after an investment does well or does poorly. This paper investigates whether poker players change their style of play after big wins or losses. We find that experienced poker players typically change their style of play after winning or losing a big pot—most notably, playing less cautiously after a big loss, evidently hoping for lucky cards that will erase their loss. This finding is ...

Immediately, I set to compiling a list of important things that I wouldn't normally think/remember to do, but that would Enrich My Life in some way.

Economics' greatest hits? ... or... Where's the science in ...
As a former scientist, help me gain some faith in economics. What were the great successes of economics as a tool for making better decisions in the last 100 years? The Queen of England said it best for me : Why did none of the big shot economists see this crisis coming ? Having been scientifically trained, I have always had this belief that economics is a mostly mathematical rationalisation of events after-the-fact with the same predictive capabilities as astrology and whose validity decreases as more people believe in it. Why am I wrong? what demonstrable uses has it had? Also interested in any books or papers discussing ...
