Article Roth, Shapley Win Nobel Economics Prize for Matching Theory URL - http 10-15/roth-shapley-share nobel-economics-prize-academy-says.html
Date – 15 October 2012
Authors - Rich Miller & Niklas Magnusson
The article talks about the winners of the Nobel Prize for economic sciences in 2012. The two winners of the award were Alvin Roth and Lloyd Shapley. The theory that the economists used to win the award was matching theory. It is amazing to me that Shapley at the age of 89 still has so a sharp mind worth of a Nobel Prize. Both scientists were extremely excited when they receive a phone call with the news of their accomplishment. The theory that Roth and Shapley developed provides insight into how scarce resources can be allocated.

Date – 19 October 2012
Author – Jeff Cox
The Wall Street community is worried that the impact of the bad economy could be worse than what many people predicted which could hurt investors nationwide. The looming tax increases and spending cuts that the Federal government has implemented could send the economy into a deep recession. The person most responsible for the fiscal situation of the country is the head of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke. The author of the article believes that investors are acting too overconfident in the ability of the government to find a solution to its current fiscal situation. It is estimated that 72% of investors have not considered the ramifications that a bad economy will have on their investment.

Recently there has been a small improvement in the confidence of people in the economy which might delay the inevitable recession. Despite the bad projected outlook for the economy the stock markets are up. Some of the reasons for the good performance in the stock market are the U.S. Q3 economic results and the new policies of ECB. Uncertainties in the U.S. fiscal policies and tensions in the Middle East have had an adverse effect on the economy.

There lots of similarities in the economic behavior of both countries including surging debt, a rapidly falling currency, a sclerotic political system, and a central banking system pulling all the stops to fix the fiscal and monetary condition of each nation.

The U.S and Japan are two of the countries with the most debt in the world.

Reflective commentary

...Reflective commentary on the Council of the European Union I was assigned the task of exploring the decision making role of the EU council. The process of understanding the European Council started with an inquiry into the definition of the council. The definition of the EU council was an important starting point, since it elaborates on the nature of the body under study and what its roles are. To start with, I consulted the 11th edition of the book titled EU Law by J. Steiner, since it gave a comprehensive definition of the EU council and its roles ‘(Steiner, 2012)’. Defining the substance of the study made it possible to undertake a focused study without going off-topic ‘(Hartley, 2010)’. The definition was followed by...

Precis & Commentary

...1) A précis of Bagarics article In his article d "If youve got nothing to hide…", Bagaric tries to convince readers that the benefits of having an open society without secrecy are greater than the right to secrecy. He starts off with a charging and unyielding argument: in developing countries, in which people are fighting for food and for survival, do people really care if their secrets and privacy are really being kept? This is a rhetorical question, since the answer is quite clear: no. He proceeds by saying that the recommendations made earlier by a relevant committee, whose purpose is to maintain peoples secrecy, is nothing short of "misguided and socially destructive" (2008, p.22). Then he explains by saying that having less... A précis...

... Catechism of the Catholic Church Article and article 2 discuss the sacrament of baptism and the sacrament of confirmation respectively. Baptism forms the very foundation of Christianity – through baptism sins are washed away and sinners are made sons of God through Christ Jesus.

...Commentary: Comment on how you have written your work. I have written my story “The Handmaid’s Tale – Vengeance” separated into 4 chapters. The main character of my story if Luke who is the father of a daughter whom he loses during the course of the story.

...Commentary Your explanation of a gray market is great but you could perhaps give an example in laymans terms so that it is easier to understand. Many people think that a gray market comprises solely of illegal goods, but as you rightfully point out a large part of it is made up by unauthorized imports, which are a different matter entirely. Gray markets do result, as you say, in companies losing out on profits and also further growth opportunities because of a perceived lack of quality products. However, some potential customer resentment would still result even without a gray market, so not all of this negative impact can be directly linked to gray markets. The last point that you make about free market economies is...
