GIFT-GIVING OR MARKET? - Journal of Cultural Economy - Volume 3, Issue 2 Human body parts (HBP) are made available to professionals either through market relations or through gift-giving. 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.

DIY Steadicam, Glidecam This article isn't intended as a complete building guide...I really just wanted to chronicle some of the unique aspects of the stabilizer I put together. If you decide to copy what I've done here, I just ask that you give a little credit to 'YB2Normal' and send them over to my site to check out my other work. To be clear however, I take no credit for the physics behind why this works, or even the overall design. Really I only consider three aspects of the design original... the PVC gimbal, the use of all-thread for the main tube, and the wooden camera x-y plate. Putting together my own steadicam represented some unique challenges...

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? 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.

The Modern Corporation A number of regulatory initiatives on the national, international and EU levels both foster and fortify the principle of Maximizing Shareholder Value (MSV) in corporate governance. This tendency can be clearly seen in such areas as financial accounting standards and various soft and hard law initiatives pertaining to corporate governance that have flourished in recent decades. These have created a new type of accountability for managers of listed corporations as will be exemplified below. One of the most important regulatory changes over this period was when the EU opted for International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as a basis for financial reporting for the accounts of all listed, EU-based corporations in 2005. These accounting standards, amounting to quasi legislation, are issued by a private sector body – the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). 1.

Plans for underwater 'oceanscraper' revealed Indeed, the future of human habitation, whether through choice or catastrophe, is often imagined (in popular culture at least) as being beyond Earth's orbit. Sub-aquatic living still seems, perversely it could be argued, very alien. Not so for Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut. He has revealed ambitious plans for a series of underwater eco-villages that could house up to 20,000 people each in the future.

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). Paris hosts first Arab contemporary art biennial "The attacks in Paris changed what we talk about," says Ella Graf, one of a group of German exchange students at the Institut du Monde Arabe (IMA), one of the Biennial's two principal venues. "Art was already an important part of our stay in Paris but now this exhibit is even more interesting to us, and photography is a great way to access this world." The Biennial of Contemporary Arab World Photography, located principally in the IMA and the Maison Européene de la Photographie (MEP) is showing work by more than 50 artists who have worked in the Arab world since the turn of the millennium. Following the attacks on 13 November in which 130 died, mosques in Europe and the U.S. have been vandalized and many Muslims have feared reprisals. But, for others, the disaster has been a cue to learn more about the Middle Eastern context. "Maybe it's because we all know Paris but only have an abstract impression of the Arab world.
