seems a book only a specialist on ancient agriculture could love. It thus runs the risk of being relegated to a dusty corner of the research library, unread. That would be a mistake. Foxhall has much for even the undergraduate general reader. As she puts it in the introductory chapter, "The cultivation of the olive offers the opportunity to explore the intricate relationships between social and cultural values, agricultural practices, the development and adaptation of technology, and the workings of the economies of Classical Greece--aspects of the ancient world which are sometimes studied in isolation from each other" ... market research, surveys and trends

social prominence did not allow special rights. For example, being born in a certain family generally brought no special privileges. Sometimes families controlled public religious functions, but this ordinarily did not give any extra power in the government. In Athens , the population was divided into four social classes based on wealth. People could change classes if they made more money. In Sparta , all male citizens were given the title of equal if they finished their education. However, Spartan kings, who served as the city-state's dual military and religious leaders, came from two families. Slaves had no power or ... market research, surveys and trends

The Economic History and the Economy of Greece, the Hellenic Republic
which was the name of the people the Romans first came into contact with in the region of Greece and they applied to all the residents of the peninsula. The official title of Greece is the Hellenic Republic and the Greeks call themselves Hellas . In ancient times the Greeks identified with their city-state rather than the region of those speaking the same language. Greece is, as is Europe itself, a peninsula of peninsulas and islands. The terrain of Greece strongly encouraged the development of seamanship. Limited land and abundant sheltered harbors put a great premium on learning to sail. Sailing may have initially ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The Slow Recovery
The U.S. economy is recovering very slowly because the federal government has made investment too costly. The tax cuts of the early 2000s will expire in 2011. The federal tax rate on dividend income will jump from 15 percent to 39.6 percent. Add to that a new Medicare tax on dividend income of 3.8 percent. When taxes on corporate profits are also included, the highest federal tax rate on dividend income will rise to 68 percent. When state income taxes, that in some states top at over ten percent, are added, less than a quarter of dividend income is kept by the taxpayer. The average top tax rate among industrialized countries is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Worshiping the false god of fiscal rectitude in DC
what he calls the "hypocrisy" of fiscal hawks calling for governments to take severe austerity measures even amid severe economic hardship. Not having a particularly distinguished background in macroeconomics, I will not judge the merits of his argument. But it reminded me deeply of a major local campaign issue these days -- the state of the city's "fund balance," the accumulated surpluses that have padded the city coffers in recent years. Writes Krugman: "[T]he policy elite -- central bankers, finance ministers, politicians who pose as defenders of fiscal virtue -- are acting like the priests of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Economics in Ancient Greece
When we discuss the economics of the ancient world, we must be careful not to use the formal Economics which we employ in analyzing our own society, since Economics is a function of the way a society runs, not the set of rules under which a given society operates. We cannot remove ourselves from awareness of the economic disciplines which our schools teach, and even if we formally try to suspend Economics as a framework, we retain the image of the economic framework in our language and our general pool of ideas. Yet some distancing of ourselves from modern economic theory is necessary in starting an investigation of a foreign ...

WikiAnswers - How did ancient greece's geography affect it's economy
The majority of ancient Greece was a mountainous region not suitable for economies based on large-scale agriculture. (Note that Spartan society in Peloponnesus was an exception to this generalization and was based on a strong agricultural economy.) However, ancient Greece had abundant coastline in the Mediterranean that made it an ideal center for a trade-based economy. In later years, the economies of some city-states (such as Athens) relied more on trade than agriculture, which was the traditional economic base for ancient societies. First answer by ID1627306788 .
