Thoughts On Economics: Welcome

My interests lie in Post Keynesianism, (Old) Institutionalism, and related paradigms. These seem to me to be approaches for understanding actually existing economies. The emphasis on this blog, however, is mainly critical of neoclassical and mainstream economics. Sloan School of Management. 2015083pap. Summer School of Heterodox Economics. EAEPE. World Economic Forum - The Global Competitiveness Report 2014 - 2015.

The Global Competitiveness Report 2015-2016 will be launched on Wednesday 30th September The Global Competitiveness Report 2014-2015 assesses the competitiveness landscape of 144 economies, providing insight into the drivers of their productivity and prosperity.

World Economic Forum - The Global Competitiveness Report 2014 - 2015

The report remains the most comprehensive assessment of national competitiveness worldwide, providing a platform for dialogue between government, business and civil society about the actions required to improve economic prosperity. Competitiveness is defined as the set of institutions, policies and factors that determine the level of productivity of a country. The level of productivity, in turn, sets the level of prosperity that can be earned by an economy.

The different aspects of competitiveness are captured in 12 pillars, which compose the Global Competitiveness Index. World Competitiveness Online.

Postkeynesianismus

Während der „New Keynesianism“ oder „Neu-Keynesianismus“ sich auf die Aussagen von Keynes stützt, die die Möglichkeit eines längerfristigen ökonomischen Gleichgewichtes zulassen, so dass über die Neoklassische Synthese eine Brücke zur neoklassischen Theorie geschlagen werden kann in dem Sinne, dass zwar kurzfristig die keynesianische Theorie gilt, langfristig aber die Neoklassik, behaupten die Postkeynesianer die auch langfristige Gültigkeit der keynesianischen Theorie.

RSS SPSS Short Course Module 9 Principal Components Analysis 1

Before we begin with the analysis; let's take a moment to address and hopefully clarify one of the most confusing and misarticulated issues in statistical teaching and practice literature. First, Principal Components Analysis (PCA) is a variable reduction technique which maximizes the amount of variance accounted for in the observed variables by a smaller group of variables called COMPONENTS. As an example, consider the following situation. Let's say, we have 500 questions on a survey we designed to measure persistence. We want to reduce the number of questions so that it does not take someone 3 hours to complete the survey.

PCA is commonly, but very confusingly, called exploratory factor analysis (EFA). Second, Factor Analysis (FA) is typically used to confirm the latent factor structure for a group of measured variables. Final thoughts. Principal Components Analysis PCA 1.
