By this point in your course you may have learned the definition of a market: A place where buyers and sellers meet to engage in mutually beneficial exchanges. But what is a market economy? Two basic types of markets exist in any market economy: resource markets and product markets. The exchanges that take place in these markets benefit both the households and the firms that engage in exchanges. This lesson will introduce the circular flow of money, resources and goods and services in a market economy. We will examine how resources flow from households to firms, and goods and services from firms to households. We will also seek to explain why individuals are willing to engage in the exchanges that characterize the market system.

Lots of people use the turmeric herb in their cooking. The main signs of turmeric are its pepper- like smell, sharp taste, and golden color. Turmeric is known to stop swelling, kill bacteria and viruses, as well as many other things. It is also full of nutrients, like protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamins C, E, and K, calcium, potassium, copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc. Because of this, turmeric is a great thing to use to cure health problems. Here are the top ten things turmeric can be used for: Prevents Cancer Turmeric can block prostate cancer and even kill cancer cells. It can also stop tumor cells from growing, so it can guard the body from getting cancer in the first place. Relieves Arthritis Because turmeric brings down swelling, it’s great to use for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It also kills germs that harm body cells. People with rheumatoid arthritis who eat turmeric all the time have gotten much rest from pain and joint swelling. Controls Diabetes Turmeric can help cure diabetes, by keeping insulin at normal levels. It also helps with sugar control, and makes the medicine used for diabetes work. But if used with strong medicines, turmeric can cause low blood sugar, so make sure to ask your doctor before you take turmeric capsules. Reduces Cholesterol Levels Using turmeric as a spice can bring down cholesterol levels. Because high cholesterol can cause other health problems, it is important to stay on top of it to stop heart disease. Immunity Booster Turmeric helps keep the body’s immune system going. It also helps strengthen the immune system, because it kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This stops you from getting colds, coughs, and the flu. To help you feel better if you do get sick, mix one teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of warm milk and drink it once a day. Heals Wounds Because turmeric naturally kills germs and bacteria, it can be used to clean wounds. If you have a cut or burn, sprinkle some turmeric powder on it to help it heal quicker. It can also help treat psoriasis- itchy, dead skin- and other skin conditions. Weight Management Turmeric powder can help keep the body at a proper weight, by helping break down fat. Someone who wants to lose weight or treat obesity and sicknesses that come with it, can have one teaspoon of turmeric with every meal. Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease Swelling of the brain is one of the main reasons for cognitive disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric can keep the brain healthy, by helping oxygen flow. This can also slow down or totally stop Alzheimer’s disease. Improves Digestion Turmeric can help with digestion, by lessening bloating and gas. It can also help treat inflammatory bowel disease. But be careful, because if you suffer from a gallbladder disease you should not take turmeric, as that can make it worse. Also, if you have a digestive problem, it is best to eat raw turmeric, and not capsules. Prevents Liver Disease Turmeric is a natural way to force poisons from the liver. The liver takes poison out of the blood, and turmeric helps make the enzymes that keep it working. It also helps strengthen, and better blood flow. All of this helps to keep the liver healthy. Because of all the ways turmeric can help your health, adding this herb to your diet is a great idea.

Throughout this section of the course, we’ve been trying to solve a complicated economic puzzle—why are some countries rich and others poor? There are various factors at play, interacting in a dynamic, and changing environment. And the final answer to the puzzle differs depending on the perspective you're looking from. In this video, you'll examine different pieces of the wealth puzzle, and learn about how they fit. The first piece of the puzzle, is about productivity. You'll learn how physical capital, human capital, technological knowledge, and entrepreneurs all fit together to spur higher productivity in a population. From this perspective, you'll see economic growth as a function of a country's factors of production. You’ll also learn what investments can be made to improve and increase these production factors. Still, even that is too simplistic to explain everything. So we'll also introduce you to another piece of the puzzle: incentives. In previous videos, you learned about the incentives presented by different economic, cultural, and political models. In this video, we'll stay on that track, showing how different incentives produce different results. As an example, you'll learn why something as simple as agriculture isn't nearly so simple at all. We'll put you in the shoes of a hypothetical farmer, for a bit. In those shoes, you'll see how incentives can mean the difference between getting to keep a whole bag of potatoes from your farm, or just a hundredth of a bag from a collective farm. (Trust us, the potatoes explain a lot.) Potatoes aside, you're also going to see how different incentives shaped China's economic landscape during the “Great Leap Forward” of the 1950s and 60s. With incentives as a lens, you'll see why China's supposed leap forward ended in starvation for tens of millions. Hold on—incentives still aren’t the end of it. After all, incentives have to come from somewhere. That “somewhere” is institutions. As we showed you before, institutions dictate incentives. Things like property rights, cultural norms, honest governments, dependable laws, and political stability, all create incentives of different kinds. Remember our hypothetical farmer? Through that farmer, you'll learn how different institutions affect all of us. You'll see how institutions help dictate how hard a person works, and how likely he or she is to invest in the economy, beyond that work. Then, once you understand the full effect of institutions, you'll go beyond that, to the final piece of the wealth puzzle. And it's the most mysterious piece, too. Why? Because the final piece of the puzzle is the amorphous combination of a country’s history, ideas, culture, geography, and even a little luck. These things aren't as direct as the previous pieces, but they matter all the same. You'll see why the US constitution is the way it is, and you'll learn about people like Adam Smith and John Locke, whose ideas helped inform it. And if all this talk of pieces makes you think that the wealth puzzle is a complex one, you’d be right. Because the truth is, the question of “what creates wealth?” really is complex. Even the puzzle pieces you'll learn about don't constitute every variable at play. And as we mentioned earlier, not only are the factors complex, but they're also constantly changing as they bump against each other. Luckily, while the quest to finish the wealth puzzle isn’t over, at least we have some of the pieces in hand. So take the time to dive in and listen to this video and let us know if you have questions along the way. After that, we'll soon head into a new section of the course: we’ll tackle the factors of production so we can further explore what leads to economic growth.

Immanuel Kant was acutely aware of living in an age when philosophy would need to supplant the role once played by religion. This helped him to arrive at his most famous concept: the ‘categorical imperative.’ If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/o15jWG FURTHER READING “Immanuel Kant is a philosopher who tried to work out how human beings could be good and kind – outside of the exhortations and blandishments of traditional religion. He was born in 1724 in the Baltic city of Königsberg, which at that time was part of Prussia, and now belongs to Russia (renamed Kaliningrad)...” You can read more on this and many other topics on our blog TheBookofLife.org: https://goo.gl/HnPgjd MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Our website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/8yBXZv More films on PHILOSOPHY in our playlist below: http://bit.ly/TSOLphilosophy Do you speak a different language to English?

Economics professor Josh Hall explains that economic freedom leads to greater human well-being. If we look at average income, life expectancy, income of the poorest 10%, and other factors, we see that when governments let citizens make economic decisions for themselves, this leads to greater human flourishing.

Are we all connected? Mathematically, yes. It might seem like a stretch, but all living organisms on earth are connected by a unified theory. The more into the (metaphor alert) nuts and bolts of it all, the more science is finding just how connected we all are by way of energy and resources being supplied to cells—and by a methodology known as quarter scaling. The larger something is the longer it lives. Let's say there's a dog that is 500 times bigger than a mouse: in essence, we can then estimate that the dog's lifespan will be about 125 times greater than the mouse. An elephant's heart beats a lot slower than a human's heart, but our hearts beat slower than a mouse and a dogs. It's all interconnected! Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/geoffrey-west-universal-mathematics-the-spooky-uniformity-of-life-on-earth Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Geoffrey West: So I think it’s one of the more remarkable properties of life actually, but just taking mammals: that the largest mammal, the whale, is—in terms of measurable quantities of its physiology and its life history—is actually a scaled up version of the smallest mammal which is actually the shrew, but a mouse is very close to that. And everything in between, that they are scaled version of one another and in a systematic predictable way to sort of 80 percent or 90 percent level. So the kinds of things that you might measure might be as mundane as the length of the aorta, which is the first tube coming out of your heart, or it could be something as sophisticated and complex as how long each one of these mammals, for example, is going to live or how long it takes to mature. So all of these things scale in a very predictable way and they scale in a way that’s nonlinear. So even though it’s simple it’s highly nonlinear, and that can be expressed in the following way. So perhaps the most well known of these is the scaling of metabolic rate. And metabolic rate is maybe the most fundamental quantity of life because metabolic rate simply means how much energy or just how much food does an animal need to eat each day in order to stay alive. And everybody’s used to that and is familiar with that. It’s sort of roughly 2,000 food calories a day for a human being. So you can ask “what is that for different mammals?” and what you find is that they’re related to one another in a very simple way despite the fact that metabolism is maybe the most complex physical chemical process in the universe. It’s phenomenal because metabolism is taking essentially almost inorganic, something that’s inorganic an making it into life. And so here’s this extraordinary complex process and yet it scales in a very simple way. And you can express it in English, it can be expressed quite precisely in a very simple mathematical equation but in English it’s—roughly speaking—that every time you double the size of an organism from say two grams to four grams or from 20 grams to 40 grams or 20 kilograms to 40 kilograms or whatever and just doubling anywhere. Instead of what you might naively expect—double the size, you double the number of cells roughly speaking; therefore, you would expect to double the amount of energy, the amount of metabolic energy you need to keep that organism alive because you have twice as many cells—Quite the contrary you don’t need twice as much. Systematically you only need roughly speaking 75 percent as much. So there’s this kind of systematic 25 percent, one-quarter “savings.”

Good news! We're on the precipice of the next great gold rush... but it won't be in the hills of California. Or anywhere on this planet. It'll be in outer space, as there are untapped rare materials in asteroids that could be used for future technologies. That's right: there's gold in them thar skies! Theoretical physicist and one of our favorite Big Thinkers, Dr. Michio Kaku, explains to us that while China might have a stranglehold on the rare minerals and metals on our planet, there's no stopping interplanetary mining. We've even got an actual plan with actual economics already in place... we just have to wait until NASA's SLS rocket technology fully develops. Michio Kaku's latest book is the awesome The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michio-kaku-asteroid-mining-will-happen-sooner-than-you-think Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: When I was researching my book The Future of Humanity I came across a comment made by Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson made the biggest gamble of his life buying the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon. Napoleon was fighting the British he needed hard cash immediately. He had Louisiana and that whole middle portion of the United States and so Napoleon sold it to Thomas Jefferson for a song. But Thomas Jefferson thought how long would it take to investigate what he had just purchased? He had doubled the size of the USA. Think about that. And he probably violated the Constitution in the process. Everyone forgets that. Everyone glosses over that fact, but hey when Louis and Clark went into the territories that comprised the Louisiana Purchase they found tremendous prospects for wealth and prosperity, but Thomas Jefferson wrote that it may take a thousand years, a thousand years before they could then begin to settle the west. Well, how long did it take? A few decades because what happened? Gold. Gold was discovered in California sparking the gold rush and within just a few years millions of prospectors, settlers, fortune hunters converged on California. It didn’t take a thousand years to develop that. Then the question now is is there going to be a new gold rush in outer space? Some people think so. Some Google billionaires have created an organization, a company, Planetary Resources, that are looking into prospecting in the asteroid belt. Now, asteroids come in all shapes and sizes and we’re cataloging them now and we have already found some perspective asteroids that could be mined. One asteroid perhaps maybe 30/50 feet across brought back down either to the moon or to the planet earth could in fact yield billions of dollars in rewards because of the rare earths and the platinum type medals that you find inside. You see, the electronics industry is dependent upon rare earths. Where are these rare earth elements found it? Mainly in China. They’re everywhere, of course, but China has the most developed market and the Chinese in turn supply on the order of 90 percent of the rare earths. Well, a few years ago they decided to capitalize that and raise the price. All of a sudden shockwaves, shockwaves spread around the earth because people realized that oh my God China has a stranglehold, a stranglehold on high technology. How can you build the next iPhone if you don’t have the rare earths to make the transistors and to make the delicate components of these high tech devices? So I think what’s happening here is that some people see an area for profit and that is asteroid mining. Now of course, the infrastructure for that doesn’t exist, but NASA has looked at its budget and does have a program that has been shelved temporarily to redirect an asteroid. The Asteroid Redirect Program is to send of the SL ass booster rocket into outer space with the Orion capsule. It will then intercept an asteroid and bring it back to orbit around the moon. Then it can be mined as it orbits around the moon or as it’s brought back to planet earth. And so this is now beyond the phase of science fiction. We’re no longer talking about dreaming about an asteroid redirect, we’re talking about an actual plan with the economics, with the details laid out. However, at the present time we have to wait for NASA’s SLS rocket to mature to the point where we can intercept an asteroid.

For the first time, I’m beginning to fear that one morning I could awaken to find all 1,225 of our reports scrubbed from YouTube. Why? Because, apparently they are becoming increasingly annoying to our current political/economic structure. My last four reports have fallen victim to a new economic blacklisting policy – YouTube’s dreaded golden dollar sign label which, according to YouTube, labels a report as “not advertiser friendly.” This means that no ads may be placed within the content and therefore no ad income derived from that report. We cover controversial topics, and we ARE very opinionated with our political views, however, there is no excuse to economically blacklist them. We maintain a very strict policy of removing all obscenities, or what is popularly termed “hate speech”, such as threats or name calling. Removing such hateful comments takes us many hours per week but it keeps us right in the heart of our 1st Amendment protections. The goal is to produce a channel that is “family friendly” so that even home-schooling parents can feel comfortable giving their children unlimited access to this channel without fear of them picking up any bad influences -- other than the habit of supporting human freedom worldwide. So, our content exists completely within a framework of “decency” and within that framework we discuss threats to human freedom. We do not hide the fact that we believe that the Obama administration is an ominous chapter in American history – probably the greatest threat to this nation’s liberties since our founding. And for writing these words alone, this report will now, no doubt, earn YouTube’s dreaded gold dollar sign. In other words, we will be publishing this content in the public interest alone. As you all know, we run this channel on nothing but these ad revenues and the generosity of our viewers, so this is a significant problem. But we will continue practicing our 1st Amendment right of free speech as long as we can and trust that this will be financially sufficient to keep us in health and home until this dark cloud passes. Fortunately, YouTube has left one window open for income despite the dreaded golden dollar sign – that is at the end of every report you will see this flash up on the screen about 30 seconds from the end. Click on it and the Support Bill Still window pops up. Why is freedom of speech so important to the overall cause of human freedom? In 1605, Francis Bacon wrote in his book, “The Advancement of Learning: “Liberty of speech inviteth and proveketh liberty to be used again, and so bringeth much to a man's knowledge.” As Benjamin Franklin put it 1722: “Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom…. “This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Governments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of speech always go together…. “Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech; a thing terrible to Publick Traytors.” In 1966, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart wrote: “Censorship … is the hallmark of an authoritarian regime.” In 1928, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers.” On August 8, 1950, President Harry Truman put it this way: On May 27, 2016, we published “Still Report #898 – First Superbug Found Resistant to All Antibiotics.” It contains zero political opinion. It concerns the appearance of a new infectious agent that is resistant to all known antibiotics, called mcr-1. It quotes the head of the CDC, Dr. Thomas Frieden who warned last month that: “We risk being in a post-antibiotic world.” "It is dangerous and we would assume it can be spread quickly, even in a hospital environment if it is not well contained." It also talks about osteopathy which believes that many human diseases can be cured naturally merely by removing the mechanical restrictions of the mis-aligned areas of a patient’s skeletal structure. According to Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, writing in 1909 in “The Journal of Osteopathy”: “Osteopathy relies upon the inherent powers of the human body to secure and maintain health so long as its structural integrity is maintained, harmonious action of its parts is secured by mechanical adjustment, only healthy foods are administered, and Nature’s laws are observed.” “Any obstruction to the free flow of the body fluids or harmonious workings of its parts constitute lesions that result in diseased conditions.” “The Journal of Osteopathy”, Vol. XVI, #3, Kirksville, MO, March 1909, p. 151-158” Do drug companies feel threatened by these statements to the point where they can insist that YouTube blacklist this vital report to the American people?

🔴 VIEW UPDATED VERSION: https://goo.gl/XQnvnk To Seventh-day Adventists: A Warning About False Tests | Seventh-day Adventists—unlike any other Christian Church on earth—have been called by God Himself to boldly proclaim the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12 to a lost and dying world before Jesus Christ returns (see verses 14-16). Unfortunately, many Adventists are being sidetracked from their holy mission by certain movements within the Adventist church itself claiming to have “new light,” or “new truths,” that are being presented as “new tests" for Adventists themselves. Pastor Wohlberg warns that 2520, feast-keeping, and anti-Trinity ideas are fueling intensive controversy, division, and diversion—which is exactly what the devil wants. **White Horse Media Position Statement and Resources About the 2520, Feasts, Trinity** 9T 19 says that Seventh-day Adventists are called by God to proclaim the three angels’ messages (Revelation 14:6-12) to the world. They “should allow nothing else to absorb their attention.” In the past, much time and attention has been lost by those consumed with advocating errant theology and non-issues. This short position statement briefly addresses three issues affecting many in God’s Church today. It also lists resources available for those wrestling with these debates. Whereas these are the positions of White Horse Media, we believe they are in line with those of the world church. "The supposed 2,520 prophecy in Leviticus 26. The 2,520 was on the earliest 1843 Millerite chart. It was on the 1850 chart, but in smaller print. When the SDA church was organized in 1863, it was removed from the 1864 chart (which EGW supported, 1T 666), and never reappeared. Thus, while taught by our Millerite forerunners, it was never part of official SDA doctrine. We believe the SDA church abandoned it because it wasn’t biblical. We agree with James White’s January 26, 1864 Review article that such a prophecy doesn’t exist. In all of her writings, EGW never specifically mentioned the 2,520 even once. That is enough for us." Resource: Prophecy’s Blind Date: 2520(https://www.whitehorsemedia.com/product/prophecys-blind-date-2520/), by Steve Wohlberg. Available from White Horse Media. **NOTE: White Horse Media only endorses the statements below in the context of these subjects. This does not necessarily constitute an endorsement of other statements made by these same individuals in other settings. "Keeping the feasts. GC 605 says that 'The Sabbath will be the great test of loyalty; for it is the point of truth especially controverted.' Nowhere in GC are feasts included as tests of loyalty. The Sabbath was given before sin (Gen. 2:1-3), is one of the Ten Commandments (Ex. 20:8-11), and was written with God’s finger (Ex. 31:18), whereas the feasts entered after sin, were written by Moses, and are types pointing to Jesus. EGW never directly commanded feast-keeping. On the night of the Lord’s supper, 'Christ was standing at the point of transition between two economies and their two great festivals…He would thus bring to an end the system of types and ceremonies that for four thousand years had pointed to His death…The national festival of the Jews [the Passover] was to pass away forever.'” DA 652." Resource: Feast Days(http://www.worldincrisis.org/Harvestime-Books/FeastDays.pdf), by Vance Ferrell. Available from White Horse Media. "The Trinity. Yes, many of our pioneers opposed a Trinity. Overall, their writings are very valuable, but not infallible. SDA doctrines should be based on the Bible and SOP, not on men’s words. Jesus said people should be baptized in “the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt. 28:19). EGW wrote, “In Christ is life, original, unborrowed, underived.” DA 530. She also wrote, 'Sin could be resisted and overcome only through the mighty agency of the Third Person of the Godhead, who would come with no modified energy, but in the fullness of divine power.' DA 671. About the Holy Spirit, Jesus said, 'I will send Him to you.' John 16:7. 'The nature of the Holy Spirit is a mystery. Men cannot explain it…Regarding such mysteries, which are too deep for human understanding, silence is golden.' AA, 52. We believe our current SDA position on the Godhead reflects an advancement of truth in harmony with the Bible and SOP." Resource: The Trinity Debate: Defending the Indefensible (https://www.scribd.com/document/139266639/VERY-IMPORTANT-The-Trinity-Debate-Brian-Neumann), by Brian Neumann. The Doctrine of the Trinity Among Seventh-day Adventists: http://www.atsjats.org/publication_file.php?pub_id=242&journal=1&type=pdf We don’t wish to have our attention absorbed in debating these issues, but to do God’s work of lifting up Jesus Christ, leading sinners to His love, and to His cross, and focusing our attention on giving the three angels’ messages to the world. Here we stand.

In The Zero Marginal Cost Society, New York Times bestselling author Jeremy Rifkin describes how the emerging Internet of Things is speeding us to an era of nearly free goods and services, precipitating the meteoric rise of a global Collaborative Commons and the eclipse of capitalism. Rifkin uncovers a paradox at the heart of capitalism that has propelled it to greatness but is now taking it to its death—the inherent entrepreneurial dynamism of competitive markets that drives productivity up and marginal costs down, enabling businesses to reduce the price of their goods and services in order to win over consumers and market share. (Marginal cost is the cost of producing additional units of a good or service, if fixed costs are not counted.) While economists have always welcomed a reduction in marginal cost, they never anticipated the possibility of a technological revolution that might bring marginal costs to near zero, making goods and services priceless, nearly free, and abundant, and no longer subject to market forces. Now, a formidable new technology infrastructure—the Internet of things (IoT)—is emerging with the potential of pushing large segments of economic life to near zero marginal cost in the years ahead. Rifkin describes how the Communication Internet is converging with a nascent Energy Internet and Logistics Internet to create a new technology platform that connects everything and everyone. Billions of sensors are being attached to natural resources, production lines, the electricity grid, logistics networks, recycling flows, and implanted in homes, offices, stores, vehicles, and even human beings, feeding Big Data into an IoT global neural network. Prosumers can connect to the network and use Big Data, analytics, and algorithms to accelerate efficiency, dramatically increase productivity, and lower the marginal cost of producing and sharing a wide range of products and services to near zero, just like they now do with information goods. Rifkin concludes that capitalism will remain with us, albeit in an increasingly streamlined role, primarily as an aggregator of network services and solutions, allowing it to flourish as a powerful niche player in the coming era. We are, however, says Rifkin, entering a world beyond markets where we are learning how to live together in an increasingly interdependent global Collaborative Commons. --macmillan.com About the Author: Jeremy Rifkin is the bestselling author of twenty books on the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the environment. He has been an advisor to the European Union for the past decade. Mr. Rifkin also served as an adviser to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Jose Socrates of Portugal, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain, and Prime Minister Janez Janša of Slovenia, during their respective European Council Presidencies, on issues related to the economy, climate change, and energy security. Mr. Rifkin is a senior lecturer at the Wharton School's Executive Education Program at the University of Pennsylvania where he instructs CEOs and senior management on transitioning their business operations into sustainable Third Industrial Revolution economies. Mr. Rifkin holds a degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and a degree in international affairs from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

Based on a book by Professor Richard Werner, a visiting researcher at the Bank of Japan during the 90s crash, during which the stock market dropped by 80% and house prices by up to 84%. The film uncovers the real cause of this extraordinary period in recent Japanese history. Making extensive use of archival footage and TV appearances of Richard Werner from the time, the viewer is guided to a new understanding of what makes the world tick. And discovers that what happened in Japan almost 25 years ago is again repeating itself in Europe. To understand how, why and by whom, watch this film. “Princes of the Yen” is an unprecedented challenge to today’s dominant ideological belief system, and the control levers that underpin it. Piece by piece, reality is deconstructed to reveal the world as it is, not as those in power would like us to believe that it is. “Because only power that is hidden is power that endures.” A film by Michael Oswald You can follow Richard Werner (Author of the Book) on Twitter at @ProfessorWerner Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/independentdocumentary Watch our new documentary The Spider's Web: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=np_ylvc8Zj8 Translate this film: http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_video?ref=share&v=p5Ac7ap_MAY Help us spread the word: Rate this film on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4172710/ Rate it and comment on youtube.

What is the secret behind the Singapore economic model? If non-Western economies around the world are gaining more and more weight, what economic model could they possibly impose on us in the future? VPRO Backlight is getting enlightened and highlighted in Singapore, which is, according to some, the most successful economic model in the world. VPRO Backlight makes an exploration based on a number of encounters with political and business leaders. Singapore, the city-state in South East Asia, was not much more than a swamp 40 years ago. It had no raw materials, no hinterland and a low-skilled workforce. It is now one of the most successful economies in Asia with a state fund (Temasek) that owns billions and a per capita income that is higher than in the Netherlands: about $ 48,000 against about $ 37,000. The economic model is such a formula for success that even the Chinese leader Deng Xiao-Ping visited Singapore in 1978 to learn from this model, with all its consequences. What is the secret behind the Singapore economic model? VPRO Backlight makes an exploration based on a number of encounters with political and business leaders, including the founder of modern Singapore, former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew (prime minister between 1959 and 1990), political scientist and Asia expert Kishore Mahbubani (from the Lee Kuan Yew School for Public Policy), Singapore-based American super-investor Jim Rogers and former CEO of AkzoNobel Kees van Lede. How do they explain the success of the Singapore model and will this model point the way to Asia and ultimately to the rest of the world towards a future-proof economy?

In this lecture, I make the case that we each inhabit a story, describing where we are, where we are going, and the actions we must undertake to get from the former to the latter. These inhabited stories are predicated on an underlying value system (as we must want to be where we are going more than we value where we are). In addition, they are frames of reference, allowing us to perceive (things that move us along; things that get in our way), make most of the world irrelevant (things that have no bearing on our current frame), and determine emotional significance (positive: things that move us along; negative: things that get in our way). --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- Direct Support: https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/donate Merchandise: https://teespring.com/stores/jordanbpeterson --- BOOKS --- 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/ Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning/ --- LINKS --- Website: https://jordanbpeterson.com/ 12 Rules for Life Tour: https://jordanbpeterson.com/events/ Blog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blog/ Podcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast/ Reading List: https://jordanbpeterson.com/great-books/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jordan.b.peterson/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drjordanpeterson --- PRODUCTS --- Self Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.com/ Understand Myself personality test: https://understandmyself.com/ Merchandise: https://teespring.com/stores/jordanbpeterson

In this, the final Maps of Meaning lecture for 2017, I review the year and its offerings: What is a belief system? Why are people so inclined to engage in conflict to protect their belief systems? It's partly because our belief systems are not only systems of belief, but structures that serve to render everyone who participates in that belief and its dramatization and acting out in the world predictable, trustworthy and cooperative (even when competing). Is there a hierarchy of rank or value among belief systems, or are they merely arbitrary? What is the relationship between descriptions of the objective world and moral guidelines? How do you determine how to conduct yourself in the world? What should you do (and is that question even genuine -- or answerable?) What inbuilt structures do you bring into the world, as a consequence of biological evolution, that help you orient yourself in life, in the face of its overwhelming complexity? What is the relationship between the games that children learn to play when becoming socialized and the cultural structures that guide us in broader society? How is all this related to the underlying symbolic structures (religious structures) that sit at the base of our societies and belief structures? --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- Direct Support: https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/donate Merchandise: https://teespring.com/stores/jordanbpeterson --- BOOKS --- 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/ Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning/ --- LINKS --- Website: https://jordanbpeterson.com/ 12 Rules for Life Tour: https://jordanbpeterson.com/events/ Blog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blog/ Podcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast/ Reading List: https://jordanbpeterson.com/great-books/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jordan.b.peterson/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drjordanpeterson --- PRODUCTS --- Self Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.com/ Understand Myself personality test: https://understandmyself.com/ Merchandise: https://teespring.com/stores/jordanbpeterson

Travel and Tourism Switzerland is the best place. Switzerland (/ˈswɪtsərlənd/; German: Schweiz [ˈʃvaɪts];French: Suisse [sɥis(ə)]; Italian: Svizzera [ˈzvittsera]; Romansh: Svizra [ˈʒviːtsrɐ] or [ˈʒviːtsʁːɐ]), officially the Swiss Confederation (Latin: Confoederatio Helvetica, hence its abbreviation CH), is a country in Europe. While still named the "Swiss Confederation" for historical reasons, modern Switzerland is a federal directorial republic consisting of 26 cantons, with Bern as the seat of the federal authorities, called Bundesstadt ("federal city").The country is situated in Western and Central Europe, where it is bordered by Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. Switzerland is a landlocked country geographically divided between the Alps, the Swiss Plateau and the Jura, spanning an area of 41,285 km2 (15,940 sq mi). While the Alps occupy the greater part of the territory, the Swiss population of approximately 8 million people is concentrated mostly on the Plateau, where the largest cities are to be found; among them are the two global and economic centres of Zürich and Geneva. The establishment of the Swiss Confederation is traditionally dated to 1 August 1291, which is celebrated annually as Swiss National Day. The country has a long history of armed neutrality—it has not been in a state of war internationally since 1815—and did not join the United Nations until 2002. Nevertheless, it pursues an active foreign policy and is frequently involved in peace-building processes around the world. In addition to being the birthplace of the Red Cross, Switzerland is home to numerous international organizations, including the second largest UN office. On the European level, it is a founding member of the European Free Trade Association, but notably, it is not part of the European Union, nor the European Economic Area (and thus does not use the Euro currency). However the country does participate in the Schengen Area and the EU's single market through a number of bilateral treaties. Straddling the intersection of Germanic and Romance Europe, Switzerland comprises four main linguistic and cultural regions: German, French, Italian and Romansh. Therefore, the Swiss, although predominantly German-speaking, do not form a nation in the sense of a common ethnicity or language; rather, Switzerland's strong sense of identity and community is founded on a common historical background, shared values such as federalism and direct democracy, and Alpine symbolism. Switzerland ranks high in several metrics of national performance, including government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic competitiveness, and human development. It has the highest nominal wealth per adult (financial and non-financial assets) in the world according to Credit Suisse and the eighth-highest per capita gross domestic product on the IMF list. Zürich and Geneva each have been ranked among the top cities with the highest quality of life in the world (the former coming second globally according to Mercer). I ♥ Switzerland.

Love is an inherent facet of human life. No drama, no film, no book, is ever complete without the love angle. So important is love to human beings that a child would not develop well if he or she was denied love. This being so, we should concentrate our attention on it and try to understand something about it...what is this phenomenon of love? ****************************************** About Dr. Janki Santoke: Dr. Janki Santoke, Swami Parthasarthy's senior disciple, is a renowned scholar of Vedanta and has been its exponent for almost 30 years.

In this video, I discuss the persistent fallacy of personifying groups and the dangers for real persons that this mistake can create. Original spoken transcript: Political Democracy is a system in which *most* votes count. Unfortunately, not everyone falls into the category of "most" of their neighbors. Even in a theoretically perfect political democracy, the voice of the majority is still not the voice of the people. This fault is not a mere failure of democracy to capture all dissenting opinions, but it's failure to recognize that expressing the voice of the people is simply an impossible goal to begin with. Groups or collectives do not have needs; they do not have wishes; they do not have ends. A group of individuals derives it's alleged characteristics from expressed characteristics of the actual living persons comprising it. Groups tend to develop the appearance of autonomy by the nature of their formation, which comes by individuals with similar goals, similar interests or similar skills finding each other. The simple truth that groups do not exist independent of their individual members is very often neglected in political rhetoric. This mistake is often made in such statements as: "the US invaded Iraq"; or "an election is the voice of the people"; or "corporate greed"; or even something as common as "the economy is recovering". All of the above are generally accepted, but deeply problematic and sometimes dangerous metaphors. Though there are many examples, I want to clarify each one I listed here. 1. When "the US invaded Iraq", what actually happened was that individual persons wearing US flags followed orders given by persons with US flags outside their office buildings to harm persons and destroy their stuff in an arbitrarily distinct geographical region. 2. An election outcome is merely the most popular option out of a multiple choice poll participated in by a number of persons. It expresses nothing more holy than a standardized version of an opinion shared by most but not necessarily all of those persons who commonly make up a minority of the whole population who actually voted. 3. "Corporate greed" has been thrown around a lot as a culprit of these economic hard times; but in reality corporations are not greedy, because greed is a conscious experience and such experiences are only privy to living, thinking, acting individuals. Business owners, managers, shareholders, lawyers, engineers, accountants, secretaries, sales reps and shop floor workers all intend to exploit the existence of the corporation they work for for their own gain, because they, the persons comprising it, are greedy; not the so-called corporation. 4. "The economy" is only the abstract term given to describe the system of human interactions and decisions with an impact on resource production, use or allocation. The economy doesn't actually exist. It can't be jump started, it can't stall, it can't collapse, it cannot have green shoots. These are all unrealistic metaphors that attempt to describe shared changes in individual behavior throughout society. It would be comforting to think that the fallacy of collectivism only gave us faulty abstractions, but sadly, it has proven to be especially convincing to serve violent and destructive ends. For instance, the alleged common good of "Das Volk" was used religiously by the Nazi's to both create the idea of the German race and convince people of its superiority. On the other side of that coin was the justification of the murder of actual living persons who were said to belong to allegedly lesser races. Even in modern times, nationalism is preached to muster support from as many dupes as possible so government's can do completely outrageous things without resistance. As long as its in the interest of National security, as long as whoever is asking is standing is front of a big waving flag, suddenly anything they do to real persons is insignificant; the totally artificial construct of the "country" is now more important. Through the fiction of collectivism and all its forms, governments and revolutionaries have committed the most heinous crimes in history: be they war or genocide, or even the perfectly familiar threats underlying every law and every tax for allegedly "collective" goals. Where human beings have created beautiful things, where they have enjoyed real peace and real prosperity; they never needed to pretend like they were one massive blob. They only needed to cooperate through the decency of respecting each other as the individuals they are.

The choice to eat animal products is a complex one. While our ancestors depended on animal source foods for vital nutrients, modern diets can provide essential nutrition through plant-based ingredients alone. And yet, globally, average meat consumption per person is higher than ever before. This upsurge has raised serious concerns over the impact of animal- based foods on global sustainability. Now, a special issue of the journal animal has brought together seven articles examining various aspects of livestock production to provide an evidence-driven starting point for sustainable practice. The special issue stems from the 2016 conference on ‘Steps to Sustainable Livestock’, organized by the Global Farm Platform Initiative. The GFP comprises 15 model farms in 11 countries. Although each facility is distinct, they hold a shared mission: to understand the environmental impact of different agricultural practices across varied climates and ecosystems, while also assessing the ability to meet global food requirements. One area of research focuses on the link between livestock and human health. A large proportion of human disease originates from or is otherwise linked to livestock disease. One article proposes a classification system for this relationship that can help prioritize, identify, and deliver appropriate health interventions. Another examines how consumption of meat and milk can help humans maintain a healthy diet at different life-stages. The issue also explores the importance of ruminant animals in turning otherwise indigestible plant material into high-quality food. Three articles explore feeding strategies for ruminants — including the use of insects — to decrease the use of cereal grains as a feed source. The final subject examined is the trade-offs that arise when looking at different ways to minimize the environmental impact of livestock production. One article uses mathematical modeling to explore ways of enhancing phosphorous recycling, while another focuses on the potential of a farm “platform” — an actual farm equipped with high-tech instruments to measure water flow and nutrient distribution — to identify metrics that can serve as surrogates for environmental health. Although seven papers can’t address all the ways to improve the societal and environmental sustainability of livestock production, the collection provides a solid foundation to help guide the continued evolution of best practices that help address societal concerns about livestock production.

Click Here: What Is Usury? http://www.perfecteconomy.com/pg-what-is-usury.html http://perfectedeconomy.org/mandates/1#FOREWORD (World Mandate - Constitutional Amendment for Mathematically Perfected Economy and Absolute Consensual Representation) Also see: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pfmpe2012/ Find Out what PfMPE™ does: http://www.slideshare.net/MrPeaceAndLiberty/abn-amro-bank-foreclosure-avoided-with-one-letter-family-saved-from-homelessness-just-days-before-eviction www.youtube.com/watch?v=uc_ToObcwDA Usury Definition -Part 3 of 3: Mathematically Perfected Economy™ SO IS THERE EVEN AN APPRECIABLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN USURY AND INTEREST WHICH DISTINGUISHES THE ULTIMATE EFFECTS OF THE ONE FROM THE OTHER? But further to the point of whether "interest" or usury and their effects are different, even according to interpretation of the unexplained advent of the later definition (3), if "interest" produces an obligation to pay an unconscionable or exorbitant AMOUNT of interest, then interest is usurious — and therefore is indifferent from usury, despite the ostensible legitimacy of legality. If the detrimental effects of usury which (conspicuously) are not even raised in the definition are distinguishable from interest then, it is absolutely imperative to be able to demonstrate that rates of interest do not generate unconscionable or exorbitant amounts of interest. This however we cannot do, because any rate of interest multiplies debt in proportion to a circulation; and therefore, any rate of interest ultimately engenders such a sum of artificial debt that the periodic interest is indeed even so unconscionable and exorbitant that the subject commerce will even collapse under the weight of that unjustified debt. Only the absence of interest does not multiply debt in proportion to the circulation. IT IS MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE THEREFORE TO ESTABLISH "A LEGAL RATE" OF INTEREST It is mathematically impossible therefore to establish a truly "legal" rate of interest, because any rate of interest can neither represent or serve the objects of the people. The inference is simply part of the intended facade. HOW AGGRESSIVELY AND PERVASIVELY ARE RESOURCES BEING REVISED TO CONDONE USURY UNDER THE FACADE OF OSTENSIBLY LEGITIMIZED RATES OF "INTEREST?" EZEKIEL 22 — JERUSALEM'S SINS 12 In you men accept bribes to shed blood; you take usury and excessive interest [a] and make unjust gain from your neighbors by extortion. And you have forgotten me, declares the Sovereign LORD. The cited revision of the Old Testament above relates a forbidden behavior to excessive interest. The word "excessive" however has recently been introduced to the re-translation; and so only if we refer to a footnote [a] can we return toward the actual translation/meaning: a. Or usury and interest. Where does the word "excessive" come from, particularly if there wasn't even an equivalent term for the word "interest," and either usury or interest could only be deduced from the metaphors which originally comprised the expressions? Here is an even earlier translation of the same paragraph of Ezekiel 22: 12 In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou has greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord God. Here we see the metaphor carried forth. Thus "increase" was interpreted all the while to apply to what we understand to be interest/usury. Interest therefore is usury; and because either comprise irreversible processes to but one inevitable state of dispossession, interest too is always usurious. - Mike Montagne, founder People for Mathematically Perfected Economy™ All Rights Reserved Thanks for watching and please remember to Like, Favorite, Share and Subscribe!

America's Climate Change Future: Housing Markets, Stranded Assets, and Entrenched Interests Session 4: Pushing against climate denial and defending science Moderator: Mark Blyth (Brown University) Initial paper/presentation for discussion: “Evidence-based Solutions to Combat Scientific Misinformation,” by Justin Farrell, Robert Brulle and Kathryn McConnell (Yale University and Brown University) Panelists: Kert Davies (Climate Investigation Center) Timmons Roberts (Brown University) Kerry Ard (Ohio State University) The Rhodes Center for International Economics, the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, and the Office of the President are pleased to announce a one day conference on the economic and political consequences of climate change. The conference focuses on three key areas. First, the economics of rising sea levels for real coastal estate markets, which comprise a large portion of US housing market growth and hence personal wealth. The economics of ‘stranded carbon assets.’ That is, the raw materials and financial assets tied up in carbon release that have a high current value but whose values could decline precipitously in the future, especially if ambitious action is undertaken as scientific consensus suggests is needed. The third is the organized politics of climate denial: who are the agents and institutions behind scientific disinformation and how can such a politics best be countered? A lunchtime keynote speech will be given by Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Lunch will be provided for participants.

Michel Foucault was a philosophical historian who questioned many of our assumptions about how much better the world is today compared with the past. When he looked at the treatment of the mad, at the medical profession and at sexuality, he didn't see the progress that's routinely assumed. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/9aEZsh FURTHER READING “Michel Foucault (1926-1984) was a French 20th-century philosopher and historian who spent his career forensically critiquing the power of the modern bourgeois capitalist state, including its police, law courts, prisons, doctors and psychiatrists. His goal was to work out nothing less than how power worked and then to change it in the direction of a Marxist-anarchist utopia. Though he spent most of his life in libraries and seminar rooms, he was a committedly revolutionary figure, who met with enormous popularity in elite Parisian intellectual circles (Jean Paul Sartre admired him deeply) and still maintains a wide following among young people studying at university in the prosperous corners of the world…” You can read more on this and many other topics on our blog TheBookofLife.org: https://goo.gl/jtltOU MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Our website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/K8d984 More films on PHILOSOPHY in our playlist below: http://bit.ly/TSOLphilosophy Do you speak a different language to English?
