Glossário: O dicionário da crise da dívida na Zona Euro - Economia

O Negócios preparou um dicionário para que entenda melhor a grave crise económica e financeira que afecta a Zona Euro. A crise da dívida soberana colocou na ordem do dia termos como "default", rating, juros da dívida ou siglas como FEEF ou MEE. Health - Does studying economics make you more selfish?

The Power of Market Fundamentalism — Fred Block, Margaret R. Somers. What is it about free-market ideas that give them tenacious staying power in the face of such manifest failures as persistent unemployment, widening inequality, and the severe financial crises that have stressed Western economies over the past forty years?

The Power of Market Fundamentalism — Fred Block, Margaret R. Somers

Fred Block and Margaret Somers extend the work of the great political economist Karl Polanyi to explain why these ideas have revived from disrepute in the wake of the Great Depression and World War II, to become the dominant economic ideology of our time. Polanyi contends that the free market championed by market liberals never actually existed. While markets are essential to enable individual choice, they cannot be self-regulating because they require ongoing state action. Furthermore, they cannot by themselves provide such necessities of social existence as education, health care, social and personal security, and the right to earn a livelihood.

GIFT-GIVING OR MARKET? - Journal of Cultural Economy - Volume 3, Issue 2

Market transactions were made legal in Iran during the 1980s; but this solution did not spread to the rest of the world. Nevertheless, the mere existence of a possible alternative to the current policy in favor of gift-giving opens up a political issue: are market relations legitimate and efficient in the domain of organ procurement? Once so stated, the question becomes: are economists able to perform such commerce as just another form of market relations? After a discussion of Michel Callon's theory of performativity, justifying the use of a restricted definition of performativity, the paper examines Alvin Roth's suggestion that a computerized matching market for non-compatible pairs of donor-recipient be created, and explains why this is a consistent example of performativity of gift-giving.

He was born on 18 April 1940 in Lyon, France. He was simultaneously admitted to the Ecole normale supérieure and the Ecole polytechnique, but he opted for the latter (class of 1960). Very concerned about political and citizenship issues, he subsequently joined ENSAE (Ecole nationale de la statistique et de l'administration économique) and became the Administrator of INSEE (Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques) in 1965. Field Theory.

Field Theory

The problem of mesolevel social order is the central problem of a social science interested in how people engage in collective action, how they construct the opportunity to do so, the skills they bring to the enterprise, how they sometimes succeed, and if they do succeed how they seek to stabilize and maintain the resulting order.

Profetas da economia. Mercado imobiliário brasileiro pode estar vivendo ‘bolha’, diz Robert Shiller. CAMPOS DO JORDÃO - A disparada nos preços dos imóveis no Rio de Janeiro e em São Paulo nos últimos anos sugere a existência de uma "bolha" no mercado imobiliário brasileiro.

Mercado imobiliário brasileiro pode estar vivendo ‘bolha’, diz Robert Shiller

Análise de preços de ativos dá a três americanos Prêmio Nobel de Economia. RIO - Os vencedores do Prêmio Nobel de Economia de 2013 foram os economistas americanos Eugene Fama e Lars Peter Hansen, da Universidade de Chicago, e Robert J.Shiller, da Universidade de Yale, por trabalhos independentes que buscam compreender a tendência de comportamento dos preços de ativos, como ações, títulos e imóveis, informou na manhã desta segunda-feira a Real Academia Sueca de Ciências, que concede o prêmio de 8 milhões de coroas (US$ 1,25 milhão).

Segundo especialistas, as pesquisas dos três economistas contribuem para antecipar a formação de bolhas nos mercados, ainda que os premiados tenham visões distintas sobre o problema, e a escolha tem relação direta com crise financeira internacional de 2008. “Não existe forma de prever o preço de ações e títulos para os próximos poucos dias ou semanas. Mas é quase possível prever o curso desses preços em períodos longos, como nos próximos três a cinco anos. What's Next for the Sharing Movement? With the launch a promising new sharing movement organization called Peers today, it’s a good time to reflect on the character of the sharing movement. Peers will build on key aspects of the movement that Shareable, as a pioneering sharing movement organization, helped shape.

Peers’ mission is to make sharing the defining economic activity of our time. They will do this through grassroots campaigns to make sharing more visible, grow the number of sharers, and legalize sharing. Let’s take stock of the movement. We have something special here. In Newly Launched Peers.org, the “Sharing Economy” Gets a Posse. If step one in mainstreaming the "sharing economy" is a glowing write-up by Thomas Friedman in the New York Times, step two might come when experienced political organizers decide to build a movement around it. Meet Peers.org. Launched today, Peers is the product of months of study and house parties aimed at better understanding the nature of the emerging peer-to-peer economy.

"We realized that there’s power to common values and a shared story," said Natalie Foster, the non-profit’s executive director, in an interview. Are markets matching Callon and Roth? The last meeting of our “Copenhagen market group”[i] was devoted to an increasingly influential stream within current economics, namely “market design”. The discussion left me with the somehow perplexing puzzle I am trying to unfold in this post: isn’t this type of economics almost too close to the ‘markets as calculative collective devices’[ii] approach developed by Michel Callon and colleagues so influential among us -non-economists market researchers- in the last years? During the meeting we discussed two articles (here and here) written by the 2012 Nobel Prize winner Alvin Roth. As Roth explains, see also his very clear Nobel Prize speech, his and his colleagues’ work has been dedicated to very practical problems.

10 reasons why economics is an art, not a science. That’s a quip from David Rosenberg, former chief economist at Merrill Lynch who is now working at Gluskin Sheff, the wealth management shop.
