Referendum on Europe," The Wall Street Journal, Tuesday, January 3, Economists agree that a large capital stock is a key ingredient for prosperity, as it expands our productive capacity and raises worker productivity, which in turns increases wages and consumer purchasing power.
Our capital stock is comparatively much smaller today than it was before the Great Depression. Where there is investment -- a new factory or distribution facility being built, a new store about to open, new software being installed -- that is where new jobs are created.
It is no coincidence that during this period of subpar growth, private capital investment as a percentage of our economy is at post-World-War II lows. Walter WristonCiticorp Chairman, All economic problems are about removing impediments to supply, not demand. But Keynes, unlike many of his followers, was not a man of the left.
Barro Harvard"Keynesian Economics vs. Regular Economics," The Wall Street Journal, Wednesday, August 24, regarding the demand side "multiplier" The principle of Keynesian economics is to stimulate demand.
This done by distorting the labor market through artificially inflating wages or actually fixing wages. Price manipulation and price fixing always result in either surpluses or shortages of what is manipulated.
This part of Keynesian strategy thus increases unemployment, which is the surplus of labor.
The other part of the strategy is public spending, which always ends up being done for political rather than economic reasons, in part because governments cannot successfully engage in macroeconomic calculation.
This was predicted by von Mises and Hayek and demonstrated, not just by the economies of the Soviet block, but by almost every government spending program that has ever existed. Government spending also siphons off capital from the private economy, which inhibits hiring, production, and investment.
The whole Keynesian program is thus grotesquely counterproductive, except to the privileged and often connected few to whom the inflated incomes and government money actually flow. The results are dismal. And so suddenly businesses are doing well, the economy is doing well, and we get into a virtuous cycle.
And we go up We believe that when a CEO pays his auto workers enough to buy the cars that they build, the whole economy does better. The real job creators are the vast middle class and the poor, whose spending induces businesses to create jobs.
That is why raising the minimum wage, extending overtime protection, enlarging the Earned Income Tax Credit, and reducing middle-class taxes are all necessary.
Robert Reich, Secretary of Labor,Mar 10, -- so how does a new business hire people before selling anything?Researchers have used various measures as indications of “earnings quality” including persistence, accruals, smoothness, timeliness, loss avoidance, investor responsiveness, and external indicators such as restatements and SEC enforcement releases.
Energy efficiency is a difficult concept to define. It is often confused with energy conservation, but conservation simply means using less energy, whereas efficiency implies meeting a given.
Thermodynamics - The word thermodynamics is derived from the Greek words therme, meaning heat and dunamis, meaning power. Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that studies the effects of changes in temperature, pressure, and volume on systems at the macroscopic scale .

Although portfolio management didn't change much during the 40 years after the seminal works of Markowitz and Sharpe, the development of risk budgeting techniques marked an important milestone in the deepening of the relationship between risk and asset management.
F. W. Taylor & Scientific Management by Vincenzo Sandrone Under Taylor's management system, factories are managed through scientific methods rather than by use of the empirical "rule of thumb" so widely prevalent in the days of the late nineteenth century when F.
