Principles of economics, translated "Mankiw's 10 principles of economics, translated for the uninitiated", by Yoram Bauman, . Presented at the AAAS humor session, February 16, 2007. For the record, the talk contains two unattributed quotes ("9 out of 5" is adapted from a line attributed to Paul Samuelson---although apparently he said it about Wall Street indices, not macroeconomists---and "wrong about things" is paraphrased from PJ O'Rourke's Eat the Rich) and, of course, the Einstein "simple" quote is an intentional misquote. The talk is based on a published article in Annals of Improbable Research (see http ), which sponsored my talk and to which you should subscribe ( ). In the paper you can see the "constructive example" of how trade can make everyone worse off (or you can just wait 50 years to see what happens with climate change).

Argentina's Economic Collapse - Part 1 of 12 Part 2: Documentary on the events that led to the economic collapse of Argentina in 2001 which wiped out the middle class and raised the level of poverty to 57.5%. Central to the collapse was the implementation of neo-liberal policies which enabled the swindle of billions of dollars by foreign banks and corporations. Many of Argentina's assets and resources were shamefully plundered. Its financial system was even used for money laundering by Citibank, Credit Suisse, and JP Morgan. The net result was massive wealth transfers and the impoverishment of society which culminated in many deaths due to oppression and malnutrition. Official name: Memoria del Saqueo by Fernando Solanas 2003.

Abraham: WALL ST. AND ECONOMICS - Esther & Jerry Hicks Shortly after the financial crisis erupted in September 2008, Abraham responded to a question from a recent college graduate who was about to go to work on Wall St., then elaborated further to the group on how one can stay connected to Source in these times of financial instability. Recorded on 9/27/08 in Boston, MA. Esther & Jerry Hicks are the authors of numerous books based on the Teachings of Abraham and their latest book, "Money and The Law of Attraction", reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. For over 20 years, Esther has translated blocks of thought from "Non-Physical Source Energy" - which she also identifies as her "Inner Being" or "Soul" - and who refer to themselves in the plural as "Abraham" (no relation to the Biblical figure). Esther doesn't use the word "channeling" to describe her process, but understands if others do.

Economics 101: Learning From Sweden's Free Market Renaissance Sweden is a powerful example of the importance of public policy. The Nordic nation became rich between 1870 and 1970 when government was very small, but then began to stagnate as welfare state policies were implemented in the 1970s and 1980s. The CF&P Foundation video explains that Sweden is now shifting back to economic freedom in hopes of undoing the damage caused by an excessive welfare state.

Economic Crisis: My Two Rubles I discuss how to survive during deflation and inflation. I talk about cash and barter sectors of the economy and give an example of multilateral barter transaction. --- Download and watch this video in high quality: --- My deepest appreciation! I have watched the video twice. Once yesterday morning and again in the afternoon. I like the software that you used, but more importantly, your approach to explaining in comprehensive terms, the what and the why. There are a number of people, as well as myself, who will not immediately connect the dots. But, your logic is based on first hand experience and honestly I have never had an explanation of the inflation/deflation dynamics explained so well in simplistic terms. What I gained from the video is that I can survive and most likely help others if I spend my resources moving between both dynamics (cash loop and cashless/barter loop) as there is a place for each during this time of transition. You also encouraged me to look further into finding trends and tapping into that cash flow that allows for a sustainable future. I was on the edge of my seat during the presentation because it is important and again, the perspective comes from someone who survived finding an abstract balance between communist and capitalist systems. I salute you friend and thank you for taking the time to put together a brilliant and critical ***ysis of history repeating itself. --- --- If ...

Liberty and Economics What kind of man was Ludwig von Mises? As this unique film shows, Mises (1881-1973) was a man who never stopped fighting for freedom: not when the ***s burned his books, not when the Left blackballed him at universities, not when it seemed as if statism had won. With courage and genius, he fought big government until the day he died ... in 25 books, hundreds of articles, and more than 60 years of teaching. Mises's battles against Communists, ***s, and other socialists, are featured in this film, as are his ideas of Liberty. There is also the old Vienna he loved, the Bolshevik prime minister he dissuaded from Communism, and a cast of villains from Lenin to Hitler, as well as such supporters and students as Murray Rothbard, Ron Paul, Bettina Greaves, M. Stanton Evans, Mary Peterson, Joseph Sobran, and Yuri Maltsev. Among his many accomplishments, Mises showed that socialism had to fail, that central banking causes recessions and depressions, that the gold standard is honest money, and that only laissez-faire capitalism is fully compatible with Western civilization. Mises was the twentieth century's foremost economist, and one of its most important champions of Liberty. Here is a film that does justice to this extraordinary man, and to his equally extraordinary ideas.

An Economic Architecture for Cloud Computing Google Tech Talk May 8, 2009 ABSTRACT Presented by Kevin Lai Cloud computing and its predecessors, grid and utility computing, all address shared, on-demand computing at scale. To achieve sufficient scale to amortize costs, cloud computing emphasizes saving human time through 1) automated management, 2) easier programming using systems like MapReduce and Hadoop, and 3) shared and open access. Existing architectures for achieving these goals are composed of largely isolated resource allocation sub-systems (eg, for MapReduce scheduling, virtualization, CPU, network bandwidth, power, etc.) These sub-systems have global impact, but local visibility, which can cause them to work against each other. The shared, open nature of cloud computing systems requires balancing the need to do efficient local allocation of resources and the need to regulate and differentiate applications globally. We take a clean slate approach to designing a cloud computing architecure. We apply economic mechanisms to resources at every layer from the high-level Hadoop system through the allocation of virtualized resources to physical servers. We find that this approach 1) simplifies system design, 2) provides more high-level optimization opportunities, 3) provides greater control over predictability, and 4) increases overall application utility. Kevin Lai is a Research Scientist in the Social Computing Lab at HP Labs. He has done research on operating systems, mobile and wireless networking, network ...
