As we are witnessing our coasts, our economies, our societies and the world as we've ever known it crumble, shatter and evaporate, it's high time to look beyond today, and towards the white swans we all know are out there approaching but prefer not to see. Somewhat ironically, it may be the disaster called Deepwater Horizon, a name that will for future generations not just be mentioned in the same breath as Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, but many miles and way before them, that will tell the age old story of how an economical crisis driven too far inevitably must become a political one, once "our" ... market research, surveys and trends
Legal Schnauzer: Alan Grayson Is On Target About Al Qaeda and the GOP
One couple's encounter with corrupt judges, slimy lawyers, and incompetent prosecutors in Alabama. . . and how you can avoid being cheated by the vermin who make a mockery of our justice system. U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) is taking heat in some circles for allegedly comparing Republican officials to members of the terrorist group Al Qaeda. First, Grayson did not compare Republicans to Al Qaeda . But if he had, he would have been on the right track. I live in Birmingham, Alabama, and have faced various forms of retaliation for daring to expose Republican corruption in our state courts and to write critically about the ... market research, surveys and trends


Great Depression: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics | Library ...
worldwide depression struck countries with market economies at the end of the 1920s. Although the Great Depression was relatively mild in some countries, it was severe in others, particularly in the United States, where, at its nadir in 1933, 25 percent of all workers and 37 percent of all nonfarm workers were completely out of work. Some people starved; many others lost their farms and homes. Homeless vagabonds sneaked aboard the freight trains that crossed the nation. Dispossessed cotton farmers, the “Okies,” stuffed their possessions into dilapidated Model Ts and migrated to California in the false hope that the posters about ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Who Rules America: Wealth, Income, and Power
This document presents details on the wealth and income distributions in the United States, and explains how we use these two distributions as power indicators. Some of the information might be a surprise to many people. The most amazing numbers on income inequality come last, showing the change in the ratio of the average CEO's paycheck to that of the average factory worker over the past 40 years. First, though, some definitions. Generally speaking, wealth is the value of everything a person or family owns, minus any debts. However, for purposes of studying the wealth distribution, economists define wealth in terms of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Revisiting California's Dust Bowl history
Lange did it in photographs -- women keeping house in ragged tents, men at the wheel of cars packed with all they owned. Taylor, a lesser-known labor economist, did it in writings and speeches that appealed to a nation's compassion amid the Great Depression. Merced Sun-Star - LIBRARY OF CONGRESS Photographer Dorothea Lange is best-known for her iconic photo from the Great Depression of a mother and three of her children in a Central Coast pea field in 1936. Lange, whose Depression-era photos included subjects in the Central Valley, and her husband, Paul Taylor, are the subjects of a book by UC Merced professor Jan Goggans. market trends, news research and surveys resources
Chinese drivers stuck in epic traffic jam for nine days
Friday gridlock is painful enough, but try sitting in traffic for over a week. Unfortunate motorists heading northwest from Beijing to the Heibei province are currently trapped in a traffic jam to end all traffic jams, now entering its ninth day.  The congestion started with a spike in heavy cargo-bearing trucks on National Expressway 110 on Aug. 14, but a perfect storm of gridlock seemed to form as the days continued. Thanks to auto accidents, broken-down cars and highway construction, the traffic extends for more than 62 miles. How long is 62 miles? Picture a jam stretching from downtown Los Angeles to San Clemente , or ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What's the relationship between economics and history? please help ...
It depends if your asking the economics of history, the history of economics, or an historical view of the world as an economist. Since, economics has existed since the moment the first person decided to trade (or steal) something for some other thing. But, generally, you'll find in history that when natural resources, such as land, water, and more recently oil and diamonds are concentrated in the hands of the few you will tend to find more poverty. Out of this poverty will come many of the social ills associated with poor, such as high illiteracy rates, petty violence, drug addiction, etc. There is no one correct ...
WikiAnswers - What is labor economics
function through the interaction of workers and employers. Labour economics looks at the suppliers of labour services (workers), the demanders of labour services (employers), and attempts to understand the resulting pattern of wages, employment, and income.
