Nowadays, culture represents an element which attracts more and more the attention of Europeans. Through culture each state manages to create its own identity and also to differentiate itself from anothers. The understanding and the respect of each EU member's culture, together with legislation, policies and other elements, contribute to the outlining of the Union's unity. The European Capital of Culture Program, was launched precisely to highlight the significance of culture and to link European cities. The program bestows for a one-year period, the title of Capital of Culture to a European city. For each past European Capital of Culture the title represented a good opportunity for development, producing positive effects even after its ending. In Romania, the experience of a Capital of Culture was positive not only for the city in question (SIBIU), but also for the entire country. Also, the past experience could well lead to the development of a future Romanian Capital of Culture.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Art - Arts Management, grade: 10.0 out of 10.0, University of València (DCADHA), course: Gestión Cultural, language: English, abstract: For at least three decades the topic of culture has been one of the central elements of development cooperation policies around the world. Numerous reports on the implications of culture in societal and human development processes have inspired researchers and intellectuals as well as policy-makers and cultural operators to look for new tools in order to ensure the adequate position of culture in overall development cooperation strategies. In the context of the current worldwide economic crisis, the challenge of effective and inclusive development cooperation seems more pressing then ever.Today, German and European decision-makers, local authorities, the private sector and civil society, are taking an increasing interest in culture in its various forms as a contributing factor to development on a human scale. It has shown that cultural awareness shows off in terms of economic performance and human development, but also that cultural resources are infinite if one knows how to apply their creative potential. Examples at local as well as at German, European and worldwide levels, show that culture as a resource for development has a high potential for attracting businesses, job creation, generating income and investment, while providing a matrix in which anyone can invent the terms of his or h...

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: -, University of Frankfurt (Main), language: English, abstract: The Solvency II Directive, which will come into effect from January 2016, is a very important project of the European insurance industry. It will set new rules to the European insurance business. Because of being the biggest insurance market of the world - European insurers generate more than € 1,100 bn p.a. and invest around € 8,600 bn in the economy - the new directive will also act as a signal for the worldwide regulation of insurance companies. So it is also intended to have a framework, which is in line with the international developments in solvency, risk management, supervisory and accounting.After 15 years of planning and development the regulation is now implemented step-by-step. The aim of the EU Solvency II Directive is to prevent insurers from becoming insolvent. For this purpose, among other things, a uniform capital adequacy for all European insurance companies is provided. Core of the proposed amendments with respect to the investment is that eligible capital at any time must be higher than the calculated risk.One of the main parts of the Solvency II project is the determination of the capital requirements. The idea is to asses both the assets and the liabilities with the aim of a more realistic modelling and assessments of the risk to which an insurer may be exposed to...

Particularly timely in light of the recent Mexican peso crisis, Mobile Capital and Latin American Development examines the causes, consequences, and implications of the Latin American capital flight of the 1980s. It addresses the increasingly mobile and privatized nature of international capital and its power to shape economic policy in those countries.Through a comparison of the policy experiences of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela, James E. Mahon finds that those countries that suffered the most capital flight had previously faced fewer structural trade problems and had not reoriented their exchange policies to diversify exports and deal with exchange-market instability. Since the countries that stumbled worst into capital flight before the debt crisis were later among the most aggressive neoliberal reformers, Mahon discusses the ways in which overseas capital served as a kind of pressure for free-market reform. Finally, the idea that internationally mobile capital now can operate as a kind of senate--an arm of the wealthy few, guarding the established order against the arbitrary, dangerous tendencies of the executive and popular chamber--is examined with relation to theories of dependency and the institutionalization of democracy.

This work sets out to examine the relationship between the Nigerian Capital Market and economic development of Nigeria from 1987 to 2006. Thus, the performance of the Nigerian Capital Market indicators as they affect the GDP growth rate and human development index in Nigeria was examined. Multiple linear regression model was adopted as the method of analysis. The evaluation technique includes t-statistics, R squared, adjusted R squared, Durbin Watson test, standard error test and the f-statistics. The specific findings of this study show that there is no significant relationship between the capital market indicators and economic development in Nigeria during the period 1987 to 2006. There is a positive but insignificant relationship among the Nigerian Stock Exchange market capitalization, turnover ratio and economic development, while the relationship between the Nigerian Stock Exchange number of listed securities and economic development is negative and insignificant. Therefore, the Nigerian capital Market has fallen short of expectation vis-à-vis its role in fostering investment for economic growth and development.

Beginning with the founding of the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1670, the fur trade dominated the development of the Canadian west. Although detailed accounts of the fur-trade era have appeared, until recently the rich social history has been ignored. In this book, the fur trade is examined not simply as an economic activity but as a social and cultural complex that was to survive for nearly two centuries.The author traces the development of a mutual dependency between Indian and European traders at the economic level that evolved into a significant cultural exchange as well. Marriages of fur traders to Indian women created bonds that helped advance trade relations. As a result of these "many tender ties," there emerged a unique society derived from both Indian and European culture.

Document from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - General, grade: 9, , language: English, abstract: Currently in India we are observing that the number of labours are shifting from agriculture sector to other sectors of economy. The labour transition occurs due to several reasons one of the main reason is that the fixed wage rate in other sectors as compared to agriculture sector. In this context the Lewis model provides a good framework for explaining the ways in which the fruits of economic development are spread. Lewis divided developing economy into two sectors: subsistence and capital sector. He assumed that the subsistence sector was characterised by surplus labour and low real wages whereas capital sector characterised by capital intensive production and higher real wages. If we transfer excess labour from agriculture to capital sector it will not affect the production and productivity of subsistence sector and it will increase the production in capital sector which will help in development of economy. Lewis' model is mainly applicable surplus labour countries. If we take the example of China, Africa, Cambodia and Vietnam which have evidenced the Lewis model we can compare the India with those countries .China, Africa, Cambodia and Vietnam were gone through enormous labour transition which helped in the development of economy of the respective countries. Migration of workforce in India characterised by a shift of predominant share of agriculture to ma...

A deeper examination of Basel III for more effective capital enhancement The Handbook of Basel III Capital – Enhancing Bank Capital in Practice delves deep into the principles underpinning the capital dimension of Basel III to provide a more advanced understanding of real-world implementation. Going beyond the simple overview or model, this book merges theory with practice to help practitioners work more effectively within the regulatory framework, and utilise the complex rules to more effectively allocate and enhance capital. A European perspective covers the CRD IV directive and associated guidance, but practitioners across all jurisdictions will find value in the strategic approach to decisions surrounding business lines and assets; an emphasis on analysis urges banks to shed unattractive positions and channel capital toward opportunities that actually fit their risk and return profile. Real-world cases demonstrate successful capital initiatives as models for implementation, and in-depth guidance on Basel III rules equips practitioners to more effectively utilise this complex regulatory treatment. The specifics of Basel III implementation vary, but the underlying principles are effective around the world. This book expands upon existing guidance to provide a deeper working knowledge of Basel III utility, and the insight to use it effectively. Improve asset quality and risk and return profiles Adopt a strategic approach to capital allocation Compare Basel III implementation varies across jurisdictions Examine successful capital enhancement initiatives from around the world There is a popular misconception about Basel III being extremely conservative and a deterrent to investors seeking attractive returns. In reality, Basel III presents both the opportunity and a framework for banks to improve their assets and enhance overall capital – the key factor is a true, comprehensive understanding of the regulatory mechanisms. The Handbook of Basel III Capital – Enhancing Bank Capital in Practice provides advanced guidance for advanced practitioners, and real-world implementation insight.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 1,0, Technical University of Darmstadt (Department of Banking and Finance), course: Venture Capital and Private Equity, 53 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the last decades venture capital has emerged as the major source of financing for young and innovative firms, replacing more and more bank credits, but also creating a new market niche for start-ups with a high risk of failure that may create substantial returns. With success stories of companies like Apple Computer, Intel, Federal Express, Microsoft, Sun Mircosystem, Compaq or SAP, this form of funding is meanwhile widely accepted. In the late 1970s the venture capital industry increased dramatically in the United States. In contrast, the venture capital sector in continental Europe used to be a very small market up to 1990. Figure 1 in the appendix shows the development of funds committed to independent US and European venture capital funds.1Today the venture fund market in Germany has reached a managed fund size of US$ 43 billion, an increase of 13.2 percent in regard to the previous year.2Therefore venture capital plays a crucial role in respect to innovation of an economy and has significant positive effects on society and a country's economy.According to Sahlmann (1990) the term "venture capital" is defined as a "professional managed pool of capital t...

A year of 2009 is exclusive for Lithuania because of such reasons as the 1000 year anniversary of the name of Lithuania; Vilnius was granted the European capital of culture. And what is more important that all this happens during a worldwide economic recession which includes Lithuania as well. Lithuania appeared in the center of world media which gave it a chance to introduce itself to the world and form a positive image as well as increase its popularity along with the number of tourists. However, according to statistics, the year 2009 shows a decrease of tourism by 17,5 % comparing to year 2008. Until 2008, the number of incoming tourists to Lithuania was on a constant incline. The situation opens a question - is the present economic crisis the only aspect to blame for this decrease in tourist activity?

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Europäische Union, Note: 1,1, Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), 90 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: AbstractThe West establishes a link between security and development policy by conditioning development cooperation to security issues. This has become even more pronounced since the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001 and is vented in the US and European (EU) Security Strategies respectively. An assessment of these strategies concludes the existence of a hard and a soft option in security policy. The further development of the European Security results in the European Neighbourhood Policy of the EU determining the soft option for the EU. However, this the EU is unable to realise as intended: though emphasising a multilateral approach, development cooperation and financial and technical aid for states in the EU periphery depend on the success of the Europeanisation project, meaning shared Western values, norms and standards. The ENP documents the assumption that the establishment of communities of shared European values equals the establishment of secure communities. To analyse this assumption, this paper examines the function of the sociological construction of security, danger and risk, and the change in their perception. This leads to the thesis that the EU as a representative of the West adheres to the conviction of the Western democratic libe...

Dr. Iqbal Md Mostafa Migration of Farm Workers to Rural Scotland. Equality, Cultural Capital and the Process of Social and Cultural Transitions

The migration of farm workers to rural Scotland is an important issue that relates to the existing theories and research in contemporary equality and cultural capital studies, particularly in regard to the exploration of how and in what ways cultural capital theory can be addressed to study migrants equality claims, the examination of how complex equality models can be used for inquiry into the reinforcement of inequalities in cultural capital and the accumulative effects of such inequality. In particular, the experiences of East European migrant farm workers challenge theoretical perspectives that apply a) an approach of equality claim from cultural capital, which emphasize b) equal right to recognition, and therefore, c) focus on entitlement to equal protection against any discrimination. This book, therefore, offers us a way to explore these experiences with a call for attention to be paid to a large number of East European migrant farm workers who have migrated to rural Scotland to work in low paid jobs marked with low skills. Unlike majority members of a population, migrant farm workers often give up their cultural capital and take up low skilled jobs in order to gain opportunities for success in other spheres in their lives. Critiquing such a trade-off approach, if the sphere of migrants cultural capital is invaded and the cultural capital of local workers (native) is acknowledged, migrants are in a vulnerable position. I also argue although migrants achievements are de...

This book is the result of three intensive years of investigation performed by partners from 9 European countries, including consulting companies, university institutes and municipalities within the project The Use of Life Cycle Assessment Tools for the Development of Integrated Waste Management Strategies for Cities and Regions with Rapid Growing Economies (LCA-IWM). The project was funded by the European Commission's Fifth Framework Programme.Each chapter deals in depth with a different aspect of municipal waste management systems. A method for the prognosis of waste generation is described. The reader is also provided with a clear understanding and significant criteria for the evaluation in terms of sustainability of the waste management situation. The book not only answers the question "how we are", but also provides the reader with key tools to the more important point "how can we improve it". One of the most important contributions of the project is the creation of two user adjustable computer assisted tool which support the accurate making of decisions in the waste management field, where rapid developing municipalities find it difficult to successfully plan their systems in order to fulfill the growing requirements of the European regulations. This Handbook also provides guidelines for the use of the developed Waste Prognostic Tool and the Municipal Solid Waste Management System Assessment Tool.

Fundamentally, the analysis is based on the individual level of Global Mindset. The new theoretical lens from psychological capital is employed to gain new insights into further development of a global mindset through a qualitative research approach.The qualitative approach is implemented through in-depth interviews of 10 German managers with several years of management experience from major established companies.The results are that the training of Psycap has to be on the emotional level. Also the generation of the people has an influence on the training. Another important and new finding is that the self-reflection and individualizing of an individual promotes the sustainability process of psychological capital.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2003 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,1 (A), European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Endowed-Chairf for Corporate Finance and Capital Markets), language: English, abstract: The idea that the general characteristics of a firm's ownership structure can affect performance has achieved considerable attention and related research brought forward relatively consistent empirical evidence e.g. on the positive impact of managerial ownership on firm performance. However, the evidence on the relation between ownership and capital structure is less consistent and numerous, although there are good reasons to believe that there may be such a relationship.Since the capital structure irrelevance propositions of MODIGLIANI/MILLER economists have devoted considerable time to studying cross-sectional and time-series variations in capital structure. More recent work following the seminal contribution by JENSEN/MECKLING has employed an agency theory perspective in the search for an explanation of capital structure variations. With this managerial perspective capital structure is not only explained by variations in internal and external contextual factors of the firm, but also by the values, goals, preferences and desires of managers. Corporate financing decisions are influenced by managers' incentives and the incentives for managers to act opportunistically can be influence...

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, capital management has become a critical factor in value creation for banks and other financial institutions. Although complex and subject to regulatory change, the strategic importance of capital management became apparent during the crisis and has moved the subject to the top of corporate agendas. Bank and Insurance Capital Management is an essential guide to help banks and insurance companies understand and manage their capital position. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, it provides proven techniques for managing bank capital, as well as explaining key capital management perspectives, including accounting, regulatory, risk and capital management and corporate finance. It also shows how to analyze a firm's stakeholders such as depositors, policy holders, debt holders and shareholders, and manage their expectations, and how to align risk and capital management so as to best optimize the return on capital and preserve capital in periods of stress. Economic capital is also discussed in depth, as are the practicalities of bank and insurance M&A, and the book also shows how financial innovations can be used to optimise the capital position and how diversification effects are reflected in the capital position. This book will arm readers with the knowledge and skills needed to understand how capital management can improve capital structure and performance, achieving an optimal cost of, and return on capital, creating value as a result.

This book is a selection of the author's comments on this process written in the past fifteen years. All the chapters are dealing with the relationship between the infrastructure network and the economic development of the area covered. The author is argueing that a better prepared and focused European support could lead to the construction of a different network pattern much more fitting to the real needs of the whole area in order to promote the European competitiveness. A missed connection pattern is harmful to the performance of the whole European Union, but especially harmful for the new member states and also for the countries accessing in the future.

This book seeks to discuss the inevitability of the process of capital markets integration. The question as to whether the integration of capital markets in East Africa is a worthwhile venture thus begging interrogation. In light of the varying growth levels, as well as striking contrasts in institutional development, legal and currency regimes of the individual East African countries, the author discusses whether the intended integration will present more opportunities rather than challenges and impediments to the free flow of capital in the region. The author further investigates how, if at all, the integration of capital markets can be achieved in the East African Community within the existing legal framework or what adjustments may be necessary in this respect. It is such discussions that lie at the crux of this book.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In their role as financial intermediaries, banks have the inherent task of assuming risks. This statement follows Diamond’s model (1984) that financial intermediaries exist because they have a comparative advantage in the production of private information. Higher competition and complexity as well as a riskier environment however have increased the importance of managing and controlling one of the banks’ core risks: credit risk. Before analysing the implications on specific credit risk instruments, the thesis will describe the relevant content of“The New Basel Capital Accord” and explain the general context of credit risk and capital management within a bank. An analysis of the implications of „The New Basel Capital Accord” implies the question of how the new incentive structures will modify credit risk and capital management activities within banks and shape the competitive environment of the banking industry. More specifically, it will be investigated how the significance and type of credit risk and capital management will change and what effect ”The New Basel Capital Accord” will have on the development of credit risk measurement instruments. The paper will also describe the impacts of the new Accord on the market for credit derivatives and securitizations and on the structure of these transactions. Moreover, it is important to consider how the scarce and essential resource capital will be affected and what potential conclusions can be drawn. The th...

Thomas Meier The Notion of Social Capital

10014 руб.
In the past decade, social capital has become an influential concept in social, political and economic sciences, but also for policy design. Social capital is a notion that has been widely accepted, and has been welcomed as the "missing link" to development and economic efficiency. However, theoretical and empirical research papers about social capital evoke uncomfortable feelings in the critical reader, for something in the concept of social capital seems to be suspicious. What is it that provokes these uncomfortable feelings? In this paper, I intend to answer this question. To this end, I will provide a systematic framework of the different criticisms. I will demonstrate where they stem from, and I will try to make some suggestions how they can be resolved. Regarding the impact the theory of social capital has on scholars of social and political science and economics on the one hand, and on the design of policies and on policy-outcome on the other hand, I hope to generate insights into the application of the concept of social capital for theoretical and practical purposes.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2003 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: Sehr Gut, University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol (International Business Studies), language: English, abstract: On the turn from an industrial to a knowledge based economy the rules of economic geography have changed significantly. Human capital and a high quality of life which attracts it have become the most important factors for urban economic growth. The goal of the study was to find out whether there is evidence for the hypothesis that European cities with a high quality of life are more innovative. The reasoning is that a nice living environment attracts educated people, which in the next step lures knowledge-based companies and stirs innovative activity.The results of the statistical analysis carried out by the author prove the hypothesis that quality of life and innovativeness are connected. Specifically a good environmental quality directly supports the production of scientific articles. Together with a high-educated labor force it also attracts innovative high-tech companies, which increase the production of patents. An overall high quality of life and a high income level attract educated people and increase the knowledge base of a city. However, a city does not necessarily have to be rich in monetary resources to achieve a good innovative performance. In fact, the quality of life predicts the innovativeness of European cities better than th...

Manfred Wolf Muslims in Europe. Notes, Comments, Questions

This book probes questions and gives provocative answers for one of the crucial issues of our time.Are two cultures ever incompatible in one society? In a series of essays spanning more than a decade, Manfred Wolf examines the topic of Muslims in Europe, exploring various aspects of the subject, including cultural affinities or their absence; several approaches to handling immigration; the roots of radicalization and terrorism; and the assimilation of Muslims in Europe versus the United States.From “Elusive Affinities”:“Assimilation is always hardest when the culture of origin differs radically from the culture of the new society. Arab cultures of the Middle East and North Africa revolve around a kind of Islam-induced authoritarianism, an absolutist impulse, which the new country sets itself against. Certain standards—deference to parents, obedience to government, respect for force—are in those parts of the world accepted almost without question, while European cultures encourage their citizens to question them.“The newcomer, especially if he’s young, mistakes this seeming laxness for total permissiveness, an absence of all standards, and is almost surprised when the host culture clamps down and jails him for a criminal offense. European culture seems amorphous, without clear values and beliefs. Freedom looks like the absence of morality. Since so few absolute standards obtain, why shouldn’t you grope and fondle women at a public celebration—especially when they’re so provoca...

Values and Development in Southern Africa

5789 руб.
Development has been on Africaís agenda for a long time but progress has been both varied and limited, partly due to the diverse levelsof the discussions ont he challenges and the interventions for tackling them. Africaís greatest challenge is the uneven development within and between its countries, and the pressing issues of extreme poverty in southern Africa, and the continent as a whole. Poverty causes its victims to suffer social exclusion and political repression. In addition, societies that experience poverty are also mostly under continuous threat of ecological disasters and diseases. All poor people are therefore plagued by loss of freedom and dignity, and are often unable to participate effectively in the political, economic, legal and social processes of their countries. This book focuses on the social and cultural dimensions of development dynamics and, in particular, the role of values in shaping development. Values are at the core of the hopes and aspirations of individuals, communities and societies. The book therefore explains the values that motivate and inform African communities and societies, with a view to facilitating a dialogue about sustainable development in Africa among academics, intellectuals, policy and decisionmakers, and the communities.
