Le Blog d'Olivier Berruyer sur les crises actuelles Voici notre classique graphique de suivi, qui représente la notation des États européens par les 3 grandes agences occidentales (Moody’s, Standard&Poor’s, Fitch), en retenant la note minimale des 3 : Ce graphique est pour moi un des plus importants pour comprendre la Crise, avec celui sur les taux des emprunts d’État. Comme annoncé ici même il y a 18 mois, avec une régularité d’horloge, de gros problèmes se profilent pour la période fin 2012 / mi-2013… Il nous montre notre avenir : celui de dégradations rapides et brutales, jusqu’au défaut. Notez aussi que les prêteurs n’ont qu’à s’en prendre à eux-mêmes – la situation de déséquilibre des États est évidente, et des siècles d’Histoire montrent que ceci finit pratiquement toujours par un défaut… On appelle ceci en jurisprudence un “soutien abusif” d’une structure en faillite – puisque tout le monde peut voir la situation financière désastreuse. Le plus gros scandale des agences, que je dénonce ici, c’est qu’elles sont trop… laxistes !

Internet History Sourcebooks Project Internet History Sourcebooks Project Paul Halsall, Editor Last Modified: Dec 11 | linked pages may have been updated more recently The Internet History Sourcebooks Project is a collection of public domain and copy-permitted historical texts presented cleanly (without advertising or excessive layout) for educational use. 1. This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms. At the time it was instigated (1996), it was not clear that web sites [and the documents made available there] would often turn out to be transient. 2. 3. Feedback and Help While I encourage notes, comments and feedback in general, I am unable to reply to all of them. For guidance on homework, research, how people lived/ate/dressed in the past, see the various Help! I am unable to help locate details about your family, or give translations of your name or nickname into Chinese (a very common request)! I am always happy to hear from people who wish to submit copy permitted texts to the various sites below.

Index Mundi - Country Facts GIS for History The National Map: Small Scale The National Map is now offering a collection of small-scale datasets that can be downloaded for free. Although the 1997-2014 Edition of the National Atlas of the United States was retired in September 2014, The National Map recognizes the importance of continuing to make a collection of the small-scale datasets, originally developed for the National Atlas, available to users. Small-scale maps have an advantage over large-scale maps when there is a need to show a large area in a single view. This makes small-scale maps an ideal solution for scientists, decision-makers, and planners needing to provide a geographical context for the research projects. Generally, certain geographical and feature details found in large-scale maps are limited or omitted in small-scale maps. The choice of small-scale maps always comes down to the intended use of the final map. The National Map collection of 197 small-scale datasets can be downloaded at small-scale data download page .
