... A six pack of problems A six pack of problems is a story by Thomas Kida that tries to explain the fact that human beings are often willing to form very extraordinary beliefs based on very weak evidence. Thus Kida attempts to expound on how most people are onto beliefs that have very little evidence to support them (and have considerable evidence against them as well).People, according to Kida believe things just because they want to believe them; and not necessarily based on substantial evidence. He starts his story by a vision of a ghost which resembles Kathy. After telling people around him about it, they concur with him that he had seen a ghost and that they really do exist. This is just an...

Simply put, the metaethical definition of relativism is that the standard of morality, ethics and the determination of right and wrong are based on culture, norms and traditions and is therefore subjective and can be subjected to an...

... Behavioural Finance Many studies in the area of behavioural finance suggest that individual investors make systematic errors due to behavioural biases. Do you believe that more sophisticated investors (e.g. equity fund managers) can capitalize on such individual investors’ errors and consistently outperform the market on a risk-adjusted basis? Why? Financial markets are very competitive and research studies note that there are little or no externalities from those participating in the market. Given such conditions, a rational investor has high chances of recording collectively efficient outcomes from investment decisions. It is very clear that some of the participants in the market do not make...

The song was overly famous, selling over 4million copies and topping the Rhythm and Blues, Pop, and Country and Western charts (Bennett 14). The cultural phenomenon associated with the song is undeniable, but a close analysis of the music content exposes negligible evidence of explicit or revolutionary intents. The thrusting, shaking, and gyrating dance moves by Presley when performing this song were seen as fostering destructive and negative reactions to youths. The song has a twelve-bar blues, carefully structured to...
