La monnaie -1/7 du pouvoir d'achat au pouvoir d'être - Une crise en trompe l'oeil.

The Economist Events Author I will give you some of my background, although the intense transitions of the last few years have left me feeling like a new person. I was born in 1967 and was a very sensitive, intellectual and dreamy child. I was always consumed by questions like, "Where did I come from?" "Why am I here?" "Where am I going?" I didn't know what I was searching for, but I knew that none of the usual options life presents a Yale graduate attracted me. In my late 20s I entered what was to be a long period of intensifying crisis. The next five years were much like a birthing process. In addition to writing books and essays, I have been doing more and more public speaking, both at conference and smaller events. I am now remarried and still living in Harrisburg, PA with my three children, two of whom are now teenagers. My most recent books is Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition.

Les médias et l’économie Panorama de l’offre d’information économique et sociale Si les décideurs peuvent accéder à une information d’assez bonne qualité, adaptée à leurs besoins et orientée en fonction de leur position sociale, le grand public, les citoyens n’accèdent, en matière économique et sociale, qu’à une information insuffisante, souvent technique, et non critique. Presse quotidienne économique et financière de qualité destinée aux professionnels (Les Echos, La Tribune). Elle propose une information pertinente pour les chefs d’entreprise, cadres supérieurs des milieux bancaires et financiers, mais aussi tous les décideurs politiques et syndicaux. L’info y est factuelle, souvent bien informée, et même si son ton et ses préoccupations sont celles des dominants, une des conditions de perpétuation de leur pouvoir est précisément d’être mieux informé que les autres… Son lectorat est en développement, grâce notamment à cette qualité, et prend des parts de marché aux quotidiens généralistes.

Déclin: La Chute de la Maison France, vue par Newsweek - France-Amérique le blog de Gérald Olivier It’s a stretch, but what is happening today in France is being compared to the revocation of 1685. In that year, Louis XIV, the Sun King who built the Palace of Versailles, revoked the Edict of Nantes, which had protected French Protestants – the Huguenots. Trying to unite his kingdom by a common religion, the king closed churches and persecuted the Huguenots. As a result, nearly 700,000 of them fled France, seeking asylum in England, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa and other countries. The Huguenots, nearly a million strong before 1685, were thought of as the worker bees of France. They left without money, but took with them their many and various skills. Since the arrival of Socialist President François Hollande in 2012, income tax and social security contributions in France have skyrocketed. As a result, there has been a frantic bolt for the border by the very people who create economic growth – business leaders, innovators, creative thinkers, and top executives.
