Jeffrey Hirsch discusses how to capture market-beating returns by following specific stock market cycles While predicting the direction of the stock market at any given point is difficult, it's a fact that the market exhibits well-defined and sometimes predictable patterns. While cycles do not repeat exactly all of the time, statistical evidence suggests that cyclical tendencies are very strong and should not be ignored by investors. The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will show you how to profit from these recurring stock market patterns and cycles. Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, President of the Hirsch Organization and Editor-in-Chief of the Stock Trader's Almanac, this reliable resource explains why these cycles occur, provides the historical evidence behind them, and shows you how to capture consistent profits from them moving forward. In addition to describing his most widely followed cycles and patters, Hirsch also discusses both longer term boom-bust economic cycles and shorter term tendencies involving the best days, weeks, and months of the year to trade the market. The methods found here follow everything from presidential election cycles to the «Santa Claus» effect Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, the pre-eminent authority on market cycles and seasonal patterns The strategies explored are easy-to-implement, and based on research that has proven profitable over the course of time For investors looking to beat the buy-and-hold philosophy, The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will provide simple, actionable ideas that have stood the test of time and consistently outperformed the market.

1352 руб.
2010 Reprint of 1947 edition. In 1947 Edward R. Dewey and Edwin F. Dakin published their book Cycles: The Science of Prediction which argued the United States economy was driven by four cycles of different length. Dewey devoted his life to the study of cycles, claiming that "everything that has been studied has been found to have cycles present." He carried out extensive studies of cyclicity in economic, geological, biological, sociology, physical sciences and other disciplines. As a result of his research, Dewey asserted that seemingly unrelated time series often had similar cycles periods present and that when they did the phase of these cycles was mostly very similar (cycle synchrony). He also said that there were many cycles with periods that were related by powers or products of 2 and 3. Dewey understood his cycle theory to be capable of understanding what the market is going to do and of predicting what may come.

Cycles, Joe Woodhouse's first collection of Haiku poetry, explores a journey through two contrasting landscapes: the City and the Sea. Chronicling an emigration from Wales to London, and on to the vibrant Spanish coastal town of Sitges, these poems capture micro-moments in nature that amplify and interrogate the thoughts, sensations, feelings and emotions of the ever-fluctuating human condition as one makes their way through the cycles of life.

This book considers the interrelation among macroeconomic politics, macroeconomic policymakers, macroeconomic policies, and macroeconomic perform ance. This interaction is examined using the expectational Phillips curve model, which measures macroeconomic outcomes in terms of inflation and unemployment. The subject of macroeconomic politics mainly focuses on voter behavior, presidential re­election ambition, and political party priorities. These political factors influence the macroeconomic policy actions of the president, Congress, and the central bank; the analysis takes into account both fiscal and monetary policies. The author's examination of citizen sentiment is based on rational voter theory and the median voter model. He compares the effects of macroeconomic farsightedness versus shortsightedness in voters and contrasts the conservative versus liberal perspectives on macroeconomic policy and performance. The empirical component of the analysis examines the electoral and partisan political business cycle effects upon the U.S. economy, and evidence of idiosyncratic effects during the time frame of 1961-2014 is found. Finally, the author discusses macroeconomic influence on various measures of voter sentiment, such as presidential job approval, and presidential and congressional election outcomes.

Master's Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Engineering - Mechanical Engineering, grade: sehr gut, Stellenbosch Universitiy (Department of Industrial Engineering), 24 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The design and development of general Product Life Cycles (PLC) and Enterprise Life Cycles (ELC) has received significant attention over the past years. The EDENTM Software Environment developed from Indutech (Pty) Ltd provides roadmaps for both life cycles. These roadmaps allow the involved development team to follow a predefined step-by-step structure for their respective project.As a PLC always belongs to a superior ELC, both life cycles cannot be considered independently. Changes and decisions of one of the life cycles usually have an impact on the other. And although the PLC and ELC are well explored, there does not exist a model which reveals those important interfaces between both life cycles.This thesis aims on the detection of impacts of the PLC on the ELC. As the Design Review (DR) is a crucial key control element in the development process, the detection of the links is done by means of such DR. After giving general information about DR and providing definitions and descriptions of DR in the PLC and ELC, an impact-matrix is developed which shows the detected interference of the ELC by decisions of DR conducted in the PLC.

In 2008, Barack Obama was elected President of the United States in part on the backs of a substantial number of young Americans who cast their votes for the relatively inexperienced Senator. Beyond just the election of 2008, however, the impact of these youth voters on future presidential elections still reverberates. This work studies whether the youth vote in a given election serves as an indication of how that group of voters will split in future election cycles. It examines theories of political socialization, and retrospective voting, to see whether a group of voters tends to split either Democratic or Republican in a consistent matter. The answer is interesting for both political scientists and politicians, and has the potential to impact electoral strategy for years to come.

Richard Barras Building Cycles. Growth and Instability

2234.04 руб.
The global economic crisis of 2008 was precipitated by a housing market crash, thus highlighting the destabilizing influence of the property cycle upon the wider economy. This timely book by a world authority explores why cycles occur and how they affect the behaviour of real estate markets. The central argument put forward is that growth and instability are inextricably linked, and that building investment acts both as a key driver of growth and as the source of the most volatile cyclical fluctuations in an economy. The role of building cycles in both economic growth and urban development is explored through a theoretical review and a comparative historical analysis of UK and US national data stretching back to the start of the nineteenth century, together with a case study of the development of London since the start of the eighteenth century. A simulation model of the building cycle is presented and tested using data for the City of London office market. The analysis is then broadened to examine the operation of property cycles in global investment markets during the post-war period, focussing on their contribution to the diffusion of innovation, the accumulation of wealth and the propagation of market instability. Building Cycles: growth & instability concludes by synthesizing the main themes into a theoretical framework, which can guide our understanding of the operation and impact of building cycles on the modern economy. Postgraduate students on courses in property and in urban development as well as professional property researchers, urban economists and planners will find this a stimulating read – demanding but accessible.

Though the researchers of the theory of long and medium-term cycles are certainly worried about the economic situation, they understand that the cyclicity still remains an inevitable attribute of economic development. And Juglar's aphorism that crisis is a consequence of the preceded prosperity is still true. In this third issue of the Yearbook 'Kondratieff Waves' with the subtitle 'Cycles, Crises, and Forecasts', we present a number of insight contributions on nature, regularities, and interconnections among cycles of different duration. Some economic cycles may result in a severe economic crisis. The current one shows once again the importance of the study of cyclical dynamics and its peculiarities. Between the 1980s and 1990s the Keynesian receipts were replaced by neoliberal and monetarist ones which seemed to be miraculous as well. The depleted growth was marked with the largest global crisis of 2008 which also showed that within globalization when regulation in the international arena is impossible yet, there recur the signs of Juglar cycles of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries with their uncontrollable upwards and sharp declines evolving into collapses and panic. This is supported by the fact that for eight years the world has been at the depressive phase. This edition will be useful for economists, social scientists, as well as for a wide range of those interested in the problems of the past, present, and future of global economy and globalization.

Camelia Voinea Florela Political Attitudes. Computational and Simulation Modelling

5272.03 руб.
Political Science has traditionally employed empirical research and analytical resources to understand, explain and predict political phenomena. One of the long-standing criticisms against empirical modeling targets the static perspective provided by the model-invariant paradigm. In political science research, this issue has a particular relevance since political phenomena prove sophisticated degrees of context-dependency whose complexity could be hardly captured by traditional approaches. To cope with the complexity challenge, a new modeling paradigm was needed. This book is concerned with this challenge. Moreover, the book aims to reveal the power of computational modeling of political attitudes to reinforce the political methodology in facing two fundamental challenges: political culture modeling and polity modeling. The book argues that an artificial polity model as a powerful research instrument could hardly be effective without the political attitude and, by extension, the political culture computational and simulation modeling theory, experiments and practice. This book: Summarizes the state of the art in computational modeling of political attitudes, with illustrations and examples featured throughout. Explores the different approaches to computational modeling and how the complexity requirements of political science should determine the direction of research and evaluation methods. Addresses the newly emerging discipline of computational political science. Discusses modeling paradigms, agent-based modeling and simulation, and complexity-based modeling. Discusses model classes in the fundamental areas of voting behavior and decision-making, collective action, ideology and partisanship, emergence of social uprisings and civil conflict, international relations, allocation of public resources, polity and institutional function, operation, development and reform, political attitude formation and change in democratic societies. This book is ideal for students who need a conceptual and operational description of the political attitude computational modeling phases, goals and outcomes in order to understand how political attitudes could be computationally modeled and simulated. Researchers, Governmental and international policy experts will also benefit from this book.

Eamonn Butler Friedrich Hayek. The Ideas and Influence of the Libertarian Economist

2097 руб.
This book is an accessible exploration of the life and work of Friedrich Hayek: Nobel economist, social theorist, influential critic of socialism and the man who arguably changed the course of Western history thanks to his effect on both Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.Friedrich Hayek was one of the leading economists of the 20th century and the leading contemporary critic of Keynes. He did pioneering work on monetary theory and trade cycles, but achieved international fame through his 1944 critique of totalitarian socialism, The Road to Serfdom.He went on to map out the principles of a free society in a series of books including Law, Legislation and Liberty and became the leading proponent, along with Milton Friedman, of economic and political liberalism.Setting him in context as well as incorporating criticism since his death 20 years ago, this book explores several major areas of Hayek's thought and argument:- why society is not something that can be rebuilt any way we want, but is the result of long-term cultural evolution, and what that means for political reform, morality and individual choice- the kind of laws that true freedom relies upon, and how freedom and its benefits are threatened by political confusions- how the market process really works: from maximising gains for everyone who participates, to competition as a discovery process- where boom and bust cycles come from and how privatising currencies could be the startling solution- how we actually interpr...

This book is about recognizing the works of notable liberal scholars who have conducted various studies in which their findings reveal that liberal democratic countries and their political actors, such as government officials, political party, interest groups, and mass media leaders are peaceful compared to illiberal democratic or authoritarian countries and political actors. The system of liberal democracy provides the best political actors that provide excellent services and goods aimed at responding to the citizens’ needs equally, regardless of religion and political affiliation, race, gender, origin, age, etc. This glory works of delivering the extraordinary services to the citizens equally occur because liberal political actors have accepted all the principles of democracy and applied them to the systems of their respective countries’ institutions. Illiberal democratic political actors are fearful to apply all the principles of democracy in the systems of their respective countries’ institutions. Refusing to accept all the principles of democracy should be recognized as one among other reasons why illiberal political actors have more often initiated the civil wars and likewise fail to provide the excellent services to their citizens equally. Hence, a liberal democratic form of government shall be a hope to the citizens of the illiberal democratic countries for attaining the peaceful countries and peaceful political actors. To understand how a liberal democratic form of g...

Michael Perman Pursuit of Unity. A Political History of the American South

4052 руб.
In Pursuit of Unity, Michael Perman presents a comprehensive analysis of the South's political history. In the 1800s, the region endured almost continuous political crisis--nullification, secession, Reconstruction, the Populist revolt, and disfranchisement. For most of the twentieth century, the region was dominated by a one-party system, the "Solid South," that ensured both political unity internally and political influence in Washington. But in both centuries, the South suffered from the noncompetitive, one-party politics that differentiated it from the rest of the country. Since the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, Perman argues, the South's political distinctiveness has come to an end, as has its pursuit of unity.

Considering the controversies in the political field, with their openings and limits in theory, we considered the political system in all senses what is given, including both political awareness in its psychological and ideological components and political relations, the relationships driven alliance of groups, intermediate classes or relations between institutions and political organizations with a mediating transposition role of social communities political ideology in practical political action in order to conquest, consolidate, control, preserve or defend their political power. With all this evidence, we opted for political system reductionism to the public policy context, at the formulation and implementation level, as policy decisions of the government, correlated with the purpose of choosing the means and the resources allocated to achieve the objectives in a specific socio-economic circumstances. Thus, in order to identify opportunities for measurement of "government efficiency" we involved both qualitative aspects, which focuses on individuals and cases, individual perceptions and experiences, personal values, as well as quantitative aspects.

We live in an increasingly hostile political climate, and even within the church we can find the signs of political division. Yet the truth of the matter is that political dialogue has been around for millennia-even in the epic tales of Abraham, Joseph, and Moses-and the social and political issues during the time of Jesus's public ministry are not that different from those we are encountering presently.Pulpit Friction looks at the challenges facing the church today as it seeks to strike a balance between its prophetic call and the political and social issues causing so much turmoil in our world. Author Ken Kinton offers both biblical and historical insights in an attempt to help Christians and the secular world live more harmoniously.In order for the church to have a meaningful impact on our nation's political process, it needs to contribute to the political integrity of the process. By learning more about the church's role in shaping political discourse, we as Christians can together become agents of positive change.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Micro-economics, grade: 1,0, University of Heidelberg (Alfred Weber Institut für Wirtschaftswissenschaften), course: Empirical Political Economy, language: English, abstract: Recent political alarm signals make Lobbying as a research field highly relevant. The main objective is to challenge common approaches to model the mechanisms of how lobbyists gain political influence. I will explain what parameters or factors makes lobbyists more successful in their aim to influence political decision makers and what "channels" they use to do so. This issue is closely related to the question of what makes incumbents prone to lobbyists' activities.This paper starts with a short theoretical introduction to rent seeking games, which are the theoretical underpinning of a school of thought which models lobbying as a kind of political investment through well-aimed campaign contributions. I question the conjecture that financial contributions are the main leverage for lobbyists to gain political influence and provide empirical data which support my claim. My analysis focuses on the total amount of money, which is transferred from U.S. interest groups to U.S. politics and could be understood as political investment through campaign financing. To explain my findings in this context, the question is addressed whether political donations do have a measurable effect on political decisions.In the second part of the paper another...

Jeffrey Goldfarb C. Reinventing Political Culture. The Power of Culture versus the Culture of Power

5591.09 руб.
The way people think and act politically is not set in stone. People can and do change the fundamental cultural contours of their political situation. Their political culture does not only restrict imagination and action – it is also a resource for political creativity and invention. In Reinventing Political Culture, this resource is uncovered and explored. Analyzed as a tension between the power of culture and the culture of power, the concept of political culture is reinvented and applied to understanding the practice of people transforming their own political culture in very different circumstances. Three instances of such reinvention are closely examined: one historic, during the twilight of the Soviet empire; one actively in process and actively opposed, ‘the Obama revolution'; and one an apparent distant dream, the power of culture and the culture of power that would avoid ‘the clash of civilizations' in the Middle East. In accessible and engaging prose, Goldfarb clearly and forcefully presents students and scholars of sociology, comparative politics, and cultural studies with an original position on political culture, showing how the political cultures of our times pose not only grave dangers, but also opportunities for creative alternatives.

3327.08 руб.
An updated look at what Fischer Black's ideas on business cycles and equilibrium mean today Throughout his career, Fischer Black described a view of business fluctuations based on the idea that a well-developed economy will be continually in equilibrium. In the essays that constitute this book, which is one of only two books Black ever wrote, he explores this idea thoroughly and reaches some surprising conclusions. With the newfound popularity of quantitative finance and risk management, the work of Fischer Black has garnered much attention. Business Cycles and Equilibrium-with its theory that economic and financial markets are in a continual equilibrium-is one of his books that still rings true today, given the current economic crisis. This Updated Edition clearly presents Black's classic theory on business cycles and the concept of equilibrium, and contains a new introduction by the person who knows Black best: Perry Mehrling, author of Fischer Black and the Revolutionary Idea of Finance (Wiley). Mehrling goes inside Black's life to uncover what was occurring during the time Black wrote Business Cycles and Equilibrium, while also shedding light on what Black would make of today's financial and economic meltdown and how he would best advise to move forward. The essays within this book reach some interesting conclusions concerning the role of equilibrium in a developed economy Warns about the use and abuse of modeling Explains the risky business of risk in a straightforward and accessible style Contains chapters dedicated to «the effects of uncontrolled banking,» «the trouble with econometric models,» and «the effects of noise on investing» Includes commentary on Black's life and work at the time Business Cycles and Equilibrium was written as well as insight as to what Black would make of the current financial meltdown Engaging and informative, the Updated Edition of Business Cycles and Equilibrium will give you a better understanding of what is really going on during these uncertain and volatile financial times.

We reprint the first edition published in 1939 in two volumes. In "Business Cycles" Schumpeter focuses powerfully on the historical role of technological innovation in accounting for the high degree of instability in capitalists societies. He aims to analyze empirically the actual process of economic development using historical and statistical material based on the theoretical framework he developed in earlier writings. He tried to integrate theory and history primarily by means of statistics.

Jerry Abendroth Groundswell. An American Political Movement

1402 руб.
No matter the era or the time, politics have captured the heart of Americans from the dawning days of our young nation to the present day with its ever-widening culture gap. Reviewers of history have commented on the acidic political times surrounding the Corrupt Bargain, the Teapot Dome scandal, and the Monica Lewinsky scandal. These scandals have caused increasing apathy in the electorate and an attitude of "nothing will change around here ever." However, and there is always a "however," fresh winds arrive with new persons, new ideas, and a new paradigm for a political change. Groundswell: An American Political Movement documents the arrival of that fresh breeze that the American public embraces with enthusiasm. Samuel Harrison is not a typical political candidate. In fact, he really isn't a political candidate at all, save his extraordinary run for the presidency.The political establishment reacts predictably with first dismissal, then derisiveness, and, finally, mild panic at the entry of Samuel into presidential politics. Even with his political naiveté, Samuel maneuvers the mine-filled waters of the Democrats and the Republicans with relative ease. As readers, we are afforded a front row seat for this narrative on the Harrison presidential train through rough terrain to unexpected outcomes.

13120.04 руб.
The sustainable use of natural resources is an important global challenge, and improved metal sustainability is a crucial goal for the 21st century in order to conserve the supply of critical metals and mitigate the environmental and health issues resulting from unrecovered metals. Metal Sustainability: Global Challenges, Consequences and Prospects discusses important topics and challenges associated with sustainability in metal life cycles, from mining ore to beneficiation processes, to product manufacture, to recovery from end-of-life materials, to environmental and health concerns resulting from generated waste. The broad perspective presented highlights the global interdependence of the many stages of metal life cycles. Economic issues are emphasized and relevant environmental, health, political, industrial and societal issues are discussed. The importance of applying green chemistry principles to metal sustainability is emphasized. Topics covered include: • Recycling and sustainable utilization of precious and specialty metals • Formal and informal recycling from electronic and other high-tech wastes • Global management of electronic wastes • Metal reuse and recycling in developing countries • Effects of toxic and other metal releases on the environment and human health • Effect on bacteria of toxic metal release • Selective recovery of platinum group metals and rare earth metals • Metal sustainability from a manufacturing perspective • Economic perspectives on sustainability, mineral development, and metal life cycles • Closing the Loop – Minerals Industry Issues The aim of this book is to improve awareness of the increasingly important role metals play in our high-tech society, the need to conserve our metal supply throughout the metal life cycle, the importance of improved metal recycling, and the effects that unhindered metal loss can have on the environment and on human health.

Political Ecology explains the history of environmental politics and its prospects for the future. This highly readable classic is now available in a revised and expanded edition. Political Ecology opens by presenting the history of the state management of the environment, then moves to an overview of the great variety of popular responses to the ecological crisis, before finally discussing the main political tendencies offered by the ecology movement. Ecological activists, Roussopoulos argues, aim for more than protecting the environment; they call for new communities, new lifestyles, and a new way of doing politics.The concluding sections explore how we can channel the aspirations of environmentalism into such political alternatives, and they provide a set of striking examples of successes inspired by social ecology. This edition is updated with a new postscript reflecting on Paris COP21.

New African Intellectuals and New African Political Thought in the Twentieth Century

3502 руб.
This book is purposely and deliberately entitled New African Intellectuals and New African Political Thought in the Twentieth Century. It encapsulates the recent debate about the political and cultural role played by the New African intellectuals in developing modern African political thought. The authors argue that the "New African Intellectuals" was a culturally and politically dominant movement of the twentieth century, despite the fact that it was suppressed and oppressed by white colonialism and racism. It was a political and cultural expression of the oppressed and disposed people. During its cultural and political splay the "New African Intellectuals" was preoccupied with three inseparable historical issues: forming the concept of the New African, constructing the foundations of African modernity, and formulating the principles of African Nationalism. Offering fresh insights that are both empirically and theoretically informed, this book illuminates the processes and consequences of the New African scholars and writers. The political contribution made by the New African intellectuals is traced from its origins in literature, music and language. The discussion concludes with an exploration of the dilemma faced by African languages as they are dominated by European languages. The authors argue that this dominance has resulted in the petrifaction and mummification of African languages because outstanding, even great African writers are not using them in re...

Alexander Dugin The Rise of the Fourth Political Theory. The Fourth Political Theory vol. II

2814 руб.
The sequel to the bestseller The Fourth Political Theory, expanding further on the fourth political theory. All the political systems of the modern age have been the products of three distinct ideologies: the first, and oldest, is liberal democracy; the second is Marxism; and the third is fascism. The latter two have long since failed and passed out of the pages of history, and the first no longer operates as an ideology, but rather as something taken for granted. The world today finds itself on the brink of a post-political reality — one in which the values of liberalism are so deeply embedded that the average person is not aware that there is an ideology at work around him. As a result, liberalism is threatening to monopolise political discourse and drown the world in a universal sameness, destroying everything that makes the various cultures and peoples unique. According to Alexander Dugin, what is needed to break through this morass is a fourth ideology — one that will sift through the debris of the first three to look for elements that might be useful, but that remains innovative and unique in itself.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2003 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: International Organisations, grade: 1,7, 285 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Atlantic Alliance, as a scientific subject, could be and is the primary matter of concern for representatives within the fields of political science and history. Conversely, this paper shall describe, explain and evaluate the Alliance from the perspective of the political economy. Jaime Shea once posed the question: "Where is the debate about the future of NATO?" This paper could thus be conceived of as a contribution to this discussion. Since it originates from a thesis in economics, the analyses and examinations ought respectively apply and focus on a theoretical framework, which independently combines economic as well as methods from political science.In 1999, Todd Sandler and Keith Hartley published a book which drew significant attention throughout the scientific community in the areas of security and economic problems. Their work, 'The Political Economy of NATO', dealt with several issues concerning political and economic considerations of security in general and in particular the Alliance. This publication actually initiated the motivation for personal research in the field, which finally led to this paper. To establish a firm theoretical framework, the author does not hesitate to combine a set of equally important ideas and approaches from both political sc...

Frederic Bastiat Essays on Political Economy

Originally published in French in 1848, Essays on Political Economy by Frederic Bastiat is a collection of essays in which Bastiat addresses several controversial economic and political principles, such as the free market, the role of government, taxes, and capital and interest, among others. Bastiat was an advocate of the free market and limited government that defended an individual's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (indeed, he would have made an excellent early American). He is known today for his dynamic and witty essays against protectionism and government subsidy and control. Essays on Political Economy should be considered necessary reading for modern economists, historians, and political science scholars.French political libertarian and economist CLAUDE FRÉDÉRIC BASTIAT (1801-1850) was one of the most eloquent champions of the concept that property rights and individual freedoms flowed from natural law.

Todd May The Political Philosophy of Poststructuralist Anarchism

5239 руб.
"This tactical reading of Lyotard, Deleuze, and Foucault accomplishes a lot. May provides something most of us did not expect by now-a truly fresh understanding of the energies and ethical concerns of some of the most important thinkers of this century."-Thomas L. Dumm, Amherst CollegeThe political writings of the French poststructuralists have eluded articulation in the broader framework of general political philosophy primarily because of the pervasive tendency to define politics along a single parameter: the balance between state power and individual rights in liberalism and the focus on economic justice as a goal in Marxism. What poststructuralists like Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and Jean-François Lyotard offer instead is a political philosophy that can be called tactical: it emphasizes that power emerges from many different sources and operates along many different registers. This approach has roots in traditional anarchist thought, which sees the social and political field as a network of intertwined practices with overlapping political effects. The poststructuralist approach, however, eschews two questionable assumptions of anarchism, that human beings have an (essentially benign) essence and that power is always repressive, never productive.After positioning poststructuralist political thought against the background of Marxism and the traditional anarchism of Bakunin, Kropotkin, and Proudhon, Todd May shows what a tactical political philosophy like anarc...

ِAbdullah ِAl-faqih Political Citizenship in the Republic of Yemen

8139 руб.
This book analyzes the formal and the informal structures of the Yemeni political system, in their constitutional, legal, and practical manifestations. The underpinning goal of such an endeavor is to assess the extent to which the system guarantees, and allows citizens to exercise and develop political citizenship rights as voters, candidates, or as influential participants in public policy making. Especial attention is paid to the question of whether political arrangements fulfill the conditions of accountability and mutual control among the three branches of government—the executive, legislative, and the judiciary. To rigorously evaluate the status of political citizenship in Yemen, the study relies not only on the analysis of the political system, but it also employs some common international measures of political rights, democracy, and transformation. While the study focuses on Yemen, the general model reflected is shared by most Arab countries. This book is written for general audience and it is recommended for those with interest in Middle Eastern politics, Arab politics, politics of developing nations, and politics of citizenship.

Political Science has traditionally employed empirical research and analytical resources to understand, explain and predict political phenomena. One of the long-standing criticisms against empirical modeling targets the static perspective provided by the model-invariant paradigm. In political science research, this issue has a particular relevance since political phenomena prove sophisticated degrees of context-dependency whose complexity could be hardly captured by traditional approaches. To cope with the complexity challenge, a new modeling paradigm was needed. This book is concerned with this challenge. Moreover, the book aims to reveal the power of computational modeling of political attitudes to reinforce the political methodology in facing two fundamental challenges: political culture modeling and polity modeling. The book argues that an artificial polity model as a powerful research instrument could hardly be effective without the political attitude and, by extension, the political culture computational and simulation modeling theory, experiments and practice. This book: Summarizes the state of the art in computational modeling of political attitudes, with illustrations and examples featured throughout. Explores the different approaches to computational modeling and how the complexity requirements of political science should determine the direction of research and evaluation methods. Addresses the newly emerging discipline of computational political science. Discusses modeling paradigms, agent-based modeling and simulation, and complexity-based modeling. Discusses model classes in the fundamental areas of voting behavior and decision-making, collective action, ideology and partisanship, emergence of social uprisings and civil conflict, international relations, allocation of public resources, polity and institutional function, operation, development and reform, political attitude formation and change in democratic societies. This book is ideal for students who need a conceptual and operational description of the political attitude computational modeling phases, goals and outcomes in order to understand how political attitudes could be computationally modeled and simulated. Researchers, Governmental and international policy experts will also benefit from this book.
