Competing paradigms of productive efficiency

competing paradigms of productive efficiency special research report Photo by
Summary: This essay is assessing the competing paradigms of free trade versus protectionism, both paradigms will be duly compared and discussed with the relative strengths and weaknesses of each elicited throughout the course of this essay. This essay will move to illustrate that whilst there may be a theoretical justification for free trade to not only exist, but also be a driving force in government policy, ultimately, in practice, the case for protectionism seems to carry greater merit with its consequence to the wider social implications that stem from this trade policy. Alt Summary: Tags: free trade protectionism paradigm ...
between individuals, groups, nations, animals, etc. for territory, a niche, or a location of resources. It arises whenever two or more parties strive for a goal which cannot be shared. Competition occurs naturally between living organisms which co-exist in the same environment . For example, animals compete over water supplies, food, and mates, etc. Humans compete for water, food, and mates, though when these needs are met deep rivalries often arise over the pursuit of wealth , prestige, and fame . Business is often associated with competition as most companies are in competition with at least one other firm over the same group ...
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS The Saga of Neutron Jack - Profit At Any Cost
Even in an age as cynical as ours reverence is not dead. But in what is aptly called the age of corporate capitalism, the feeling of reverence finds strange expression: through hagiography, which extols not the virtues of saints but the avarice of business magnates. The media whose task is to keep the hoi polloi in a perpetual state of wonder achieves this by heaping praise on the business gods of corporate America. The pride of place in that pantheon belongs to Jack Welch, who was the CEO of General Electric. On channels such as NBC or CNBC, which GE owned, one can see Welch spinning his views on how to make millions. He looks ... market research, surveys and trends
Beloved Spear: Health Care is Not a Right
Whole Foods CEO John Mackey managed to cheese off his entire customer base by arguing vigorously against health care reform. His position is that the market should be in control of health care provision, because health care is a service like any other service. It's not a surprising position for the Chief Executive Officer of a for profit corporation, even if the clientele of that corporation happen to be wealthy progressives who are almost universally in favor of a more progressive approach to health care. In his article, though, Mackey went well beyond arguing for market-based options, and dug down to the philosophical ... market research, surveys and trends

Citizen Murdoch A Case Study In The Paradox Of Economic Efficiency ...
Rupert Murdoch, mephisto of the media, disciple of the global village, personifies the modern corporate entrepreneur. He seems to embody the condition of alertness that Kirzner [1979] considers to be synonymous with the entrepreneur's motive role in a market economy. As a premier opportunist, Murdoch has displayed an uncanny ability to seize the economic moment in his quest for greater market penetration and growth. Unhindered by the usual corporate constraints, the trademark of his rise has been speed of decision and efficient use of resources. Yet in 1990, Murdoch found himself teetering on the brink of economic disaster, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
A City in the Cloud: Living PlanIT Redefines Cities as Software
When did Silicon Valley become so obsessed with building cities? Last month it was Cisco’s SVP of strategy Inder Sidhu describing the company’s smart city play as the $36 billion company’s “ biggest opportunity .” Then, at the inaugural Techonomy conference a few weeks ago, an all-star roster of techies, VCs, and scientists pondered “cities as solutions.” Physicist and former Sante Fe Institute president Geoffrey West practically stole the show with his talk on urban metabolisms. Cities are like organisms, he explained, except they grow much faster and much bigger than anything living – in fact, there appears to be no upper ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Economics: national debt burden v.s. nominal level of debt ...

Slashdot | Programming Language Specialization Dilemma
Spend a couple of months learning C#. You can bash microsoft all you want, but most of the job postings (at least around here) are for .Net/C#. In todays economy, if you want a job, you need to know what employers want, not so much what you want. Parent is dead on. As for C#, it's a rival to both Java and C++ (mostly for non-games). The problem of course is it's a MS language. I would recommend that any SlashDot reader go with Java or C++ over C# because they are better documented, more standards compliant, cross platform (Mono is nice and all but it's no substitute for MS C# from what I hear) and Open ...
