Development in Turbulent Times: The Many Faces of Inequality Within Europe

by Paul Dobrescu

This open access book explores the most recent trends in the EU in terms of development, progress, and performance. Ten years after the 2008 economic crisis, and amidst a digital revolution that is intensifying the development race, the European Union, and especially Central and Eastern Europe, are ardently searching for their development priorities.Against this background, by relying on a cross-national perspective, the authors reflect upon the developmental challenges of the moment, such as sustainable development, reducing inequality, ensuring social cohesion, and driving the digital revolution. They particularly focus on the relation between the less-developed Eastern part of the EU and its more developed Western counterpart, and discuss the consequences of this development gap in detail.Lastly, the book presents a range of case studies from different areas of governance, such as economy and commerce, health services, education, migration and public opinion in order to investigate the trends most likely to impact the European Union's medium and long-term development.

Africa's Lions: Growth Traps and Opportunities for Six African Economies

by Haroon Bhorat

Examining the economic forces that will shape Africa's future.Africa’s Lions examines the economic growth experiences of six fast growing and/or economically dominant African countries. Expert African researchers offer unique perspectives into the challenges and issues in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and South Africa.Despite a growing body of research on African economies, very little has focused on the relationship between economic growth and employment outcomes at the detailed country level. A lack of empirical data has deprived policymakers of a robust evidence base on which to make informed decisions. By harnessing country-level household, firm, and national accounts data together with existing analytical country research—the authors have attempted to bridge this gap.The growth of the global working-age population to 2030 will be driven primarily by Africa, which means that the relationship between growth and employment should be understood within the context of each country’s projected demographic challenge and the associated implications for employment growth. A better understanding of the structure of each country’s workforce and the resulting implications for human capital development, the vulnerably employed, and the working poor, will be critical to informing the development policy agenda.As a group, the six countries profiled in Africa’s Lions will largely shape the continent's future. Each country chapter focuses on the complex interactions between economic growth and employment outcomes, within the individual Africa’s Lions context.

Iberian World Empires and the Globalization of Europe 1415–1668 (Palgrave Studies in Comparative Global History)

by Bartolomé Yun-Casalilla

This open access book analyses Iberian expansion by using knowledge accumulated in recent years to test some of the most important theories regarding Europe’s economic development. Adopting a comparative perspective, it considers the impact of early globalization on Iberian and Western European institutions, social development and political economies. In spite of globalization’s minor importance from the commercial perspective before 1750, this book finds its impact decisive for institutional development, political economies, and processes of state-building in Iberia and Europe.  The book engages current historiographies and revindicates the need to take the concept of composite monarchies as a point of departure in order to understand the period’s economic and social developments, analysing the institutions and societies resulting from contact with Iberian peoples in America and Asia.  The outcome is a study that nuances and contests an excessively-negative yet prevalent image of the Iberian societies, explores the difficult relationship between empires and globalization and opens paths for comparisons to other imperial formations.

Mind Traps: The process of domestication

by Athan Ftereos

Man thought religion would guide him to happiness and freedom but he was wrong and then turned to science and technology for guidance and both of them in one stage of development took off from nature and created a new technological environment and left man floating in this space with no reference for orientation. This environment extends into virtual reality of the imagination; it has no borders as nature’s environment has. In this borderless environment man feels unrestricted to move everywhere. He also feels that nature is no longer able to satisfy his physical and psychological needs, and he is seeking new ways of action and expression defined by technology. I explain in this book that the movement of man must be within certain boundaries that define the space of motion where our needs (physical and emotional) can be satisfied. I also explain that when a dynamic system like our life is excessively expanded the forces inside the system cannot hold the system together and the system is disintegrated, burnt out or becomes static. Since virtual reality has no boundaries man can get easily lost or destroyed in this vast space. This applies to all dynamic systems like cultures, civilizations, economies, ecosystems etc.The future of humanity and our planet will be controlled by Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI will be the new god who will rule humanity in the future, it will be a type of technological dictatorship, therefore human intelligence will be inferior to AI and it will be no longer vital for our existence because for that moment on the AI will define life for us. On the contrary human intelligence will be highly discouraged as it will be considered to interfere with the flow of technological ideas of AI. Therefore AI will create a “black hole” for human intelligence or perhaps AI will be this “black hole” which will suck any human intelligence to oblivion. We are witnessing the destruction of humanity and now man is standing on the path of fear for handouts from those in charge of his intellectual creations, science, arts and technology and is looking spiritless, physically and intellectually exhausted. He has no longer confidence in himself because he no longer believes in his intellectual or physical powers. Man has fallen into a terrible trap and has surrendered in to the power of the machine. From now on it is those who are in charge of programming the machines, including the voting machines who will be the decision makers. From now on, the machine will define man’s actions and such actions will be routine, robotic type actions and man’s life will be on a path where all his actions will be predictable. Life in the intellectual level is about knowledge and ideas and ideas are tied to place we live at a certain time (at different time or different places there will be different ideas). The language of the intelligent mind is verbal communication.The Emotional mind is the opposite of the intelligent mind. It is manifested everywhere the same, regardless when and where we live, people cry the same, laugh the same, mourn their loved ones exactly the same. The language of the emotional mind is music, poetry, dance, colors, emotions, action etc. Therefore the emotional language is universal everywhere the same. The emotional language has also undefined meaning and it is perceived differently each time, it is dynamic (continuously changing) creating each time different ways of expression. I explain in this book that the intelligent mind can comprehend only digital and static states and the emotional mind analog (shapes and patterns) and dynamic states, waves and action.This explains why we cannot order or explain to our emotional mind verbally to feel happy when we are depress or feel miserable, this will never work. What will work is to do something (action) where our intelligent and emotional minds agree and equally participate like work with our hobby or go to dance with someone we like etc.
