Observe that Roman history leaves no traces of great mercantile companies like the Bardi, the Peruzzi or the Medici. There are no records of commercial manuals of the sort that are abundant from Renaissance Italy; no evidence of “class-struggle” as we have from late medieval Europe; and no political economy or “economics”, that is, no […] The post Mark Koyama review of the Roman economy appeared first on Marginal REVOLUTION.

Telecom Stock Roundup: AT&T, Verizon Withdraw Advertisements from YouTube, Comcast to Rebrand Stream
The telecom industry had a steady run on the bourse last week with most of the key stocks trading in the green. A few developments even made it to the headlines.
Задумался, а когда собственно начался "троллинг", когда хорошим тоном для анонима стало сразу начинать с того, чтобы попытаться максимально эффектно и эффективно задеть участника дискуссии.Может, быть какие-то молодые участники нынешних протестных митингов считают, что обострение троллинга связано с обострением политической обстановки в России в 2011 или с Украинским кризисом 2013-2113 гг.Конечно, это не так.С улицы в Интернеты (как указано в анналах)) срач пришел еще начиная с фидонетовского TYT.BCE.HACPEM (с 1995 г.), кащенитов [этих я уже не застал], а потом и подонков [застал]Падонков напрямую относят к ЖЖ и даже к двум конкретным записям:появление американца, требующего говорить по-английски, который не распознавал, что за язык в американском ЖЖ, на что ему пояснили, что «неизвестный» язык -- албанский, на что американец ответил:"Это Живой Журнал. Американский сайт, а не албанский... быть американцем означает, что остальной мир должен подстраиваться под меня"В ответ в русскоязычной части ЖЖ был организован флешмоб «Уроки албанского», который ставил своей целью помочь американцу выучить русский язык.====Всё это космически далекая история, хотя всё это происходило чуть более 10 лет назад.Конечно, это были очень добрые сетевые времена.Сейчас уже не происходят столь спокойные сетевые дискуссии и дружелюбные флэшмобы (наверное, где-то эдакое всё еще происходит... форум писателей "ЭКСМО"? Глобальная авантюра?).Да и определенная сегментация по сетевым пространствам произошла.Например, сегодня размещал заметку из паблика Вечерний политрук_Путину и Медведеву надо серьёзно поговорить и в очередной раз примечал разницу (порой едва уловимую) в подходах к обсуждению.Надо отметить, что паблики Вечернего политрука в Фейсбуке и Вконтакте отчасти вычищены от ботов и троллей, но самое квалифицированное обсуждение, на мой взгляд, по-прежнему происходит на АфтешокеАфтешокКонтиненталистВконтактеФейсбук(чат "Вечернего политрука" в Телеграмме пока секретный и по определению квалифицированный, так как там дискутируют авторы))Интересно, в какой интернет-аудитории (на какой интернет-площадке) сейчас самая квалифицированная аудитория?(преимущественно англоязычный Реддит?)

**Should-Read: Pseudoerasmus**: _[Economic Growth in Ancient Greece]_: "The causes of [Ancient] Greek economic growth may have been 'ordinary'... [Economic Growth in Ancient Greece]: https://pseudoerasmus.com/2015/04/02/ancient-greece-econ-growth/ >...but certainly their effects somehow were not. Ober is quite right that the peculiarly egalitarian institutions of the ancient Greeks cry out for an explanation. Here’s a possible scenario. The collapse of Mycenaean civilisation in the 12th century BCE allowed a “reset” on Greek political evolution, a kind of institutional creative destruction. In the absence of the Late Bronze Age collapse, some Peloponnesian city-state like Mykenae itself or a mainland state like Thebes might have consolidated a circum-Aegean state 800-900 years earlier than Athens would attempt or Makedon would ultimately accomplish. This “reset” prevented the creation of a centralised state in the Aegean for almost a millennium. >The population recovery from the Dark Ages was accompanied by land tenure based on small holdings, as we would normally expect in the course of proto-political development with village cultures. This led to the relatively egalitarian city-states of citizen-farmers when Greek poleis started emerging from obscurity again in the 9th century. Hence, Ober’s “rule egalitarnianism”. An effect, not a cause, of economic growth. [Economic Growth in Ancient Greece]: https://pseudoerasmus.com/2015/04/02/ancient-greece-econ-growth/

FINAL DRAFT here: Joel Mokyr's (2016) _A Culture of Growth: The Origins of the Modern Economy_ (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press: 9780691167773: ), published in October 2016, is the latest and most successful extended brief by Northwestern University economic historian Joel Mokyr for his point of view on the causal origins of modern economic growth. What is modern economic growth? As best as we can conceptualize and measure (or perhaps it would be more honest to say: "guess"), average human material living standards and economic productivity levels today are some twenty times what they were in the agricultural-age span from ca. 6000 BCE to 1500 CE. The efficiency with which we collectively use technology and organization to transform human and nonhuman resources into useful commodities is currently growing at a rate of about 2%/year, perhaps 100 times the rate common during the agricultural age. Some do believe that the 2%/year global pace of modern economic growth will slow in the future. But very few indeed see it coming to any sort of rapid end--barring, of course, thermonuclear war or equivalent catastrophe. Joel Mokyr is one of the leaders of the school of thought that sees the causal origins of modern...
Following the acquisition of MTS, BCE's (BCE) subsidiary Bell Canada launched Bell MTS on Mar 17, 2017.
It is March 15, a day known in antiquity as the Ides of March. From 44 BCE onward, it would also be remembered as the day that Gaius Julius Caesar was assassinated. Here are a few facts you may not be aware of on this infamous day.
A favorite book of Steve Bannon’s is Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. A classic of military strategy, The Art of War was compiled during the Warring States period (403-221 BCE) in ancient Chinese history. It was a time of intense civil warfare in China, a time when a cessation in fighting was merely a pause between the next round of battles among warlords. It’s still widely read today for its insights into war, its clever stratagems and tactics, and its lessons into human nature and behavior. Bannon, who served in the U.S. Navy, is an armchair strategist with an affinity for military history books. He appears to believe in inevitable conflict between the Judeo-Christian West, which he favors due to its “enlightened” values, and the World of Islam, which he sees as retrograde and barbaric when compared to the West. He sees the world as already being in a “warring states” period writ large, a realm of conflict marked by “holy war” to be mastered by warrior/scholars like himself. Joining him in this belief is Donald Trump, who took great pains to recite the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” in his speech before Congress, as if using these words were a mark of personal courage on his part. Trump has boasted about winning the “next” war, as if war during his presidency is inevitable. And I suppose it is, with Trump at the helm and advisers like Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, and Stephen Miller pursuing a bellicose hardline against Islam. Be careful what you wish for, Trump and cronies, and be especially careful about declaring victory in wars before you’ve even fought them. Here Sun Tzu has much to teach our “warriors” in the White House. For one thing, Sun Tzu writes that a battle is best won without fighting at all. Said Sun Tzu: “Fighting and winning a hundred wars is not the greatest good. Winning without having to fight is.” In other words, you set the stage so carefully that the enemy must surrender or face obliteration before the curtain is even raised on war. Secondly, Sun Tzu warns about the folly of protracted wars, how they deplete the national budget and weaken a state, especially when support among the people is tepid. Warfare, notes Sun Tzu, must be treated with the greatest caution, even as it is waged with great cunning. Best of all is to outsmart the enemy; next best is to form alliances, to build a much bigger army than the enemy, which may force them to capitulate. Worst of all is to get bogged down in long wars, especially in cities, which require expensive sieges that wear on both sides (just ask the Germans at Stalingrad about this). Ultimately, Sun Tzu writes that by understanding oneself and one’s enemy, a skilled leader can engage in a hundred battles without ever being in serious danger. But an unskilled leader who does not truly know his own nature or that of his enemies is one who is fated always to lose. Trump, who fancies himself a great leader and who is ignorant of foreign nations and peoples, does not inspire confidence here, even as he promises the American people that we’re going to win so much, we’ll get bored with winning. Sun Tzu puts great emphasis on careful planning and sober deliberation before launching attacks. If the recent Yemen raid is any indicator, Trump is neither a careful planner nor a sober deliberator. Indeed, Trump’s personal qualities expose him to being manipulated by a cunning enemy. In listing the personal traits that are dangerous in a commander, Sun Tzu mentions “quick to anger” as well as “self-consciousness” or vanity. One who’s quick to anger can be goaded by insults into making poor decisions; one who’s vain and self-conscious can be humiliated or manipulated into rash action. Trump promises an American military that is so big and so strong that no country will dare attack us. Yet Trump himself, surrounded by his “warrior” advisers, isn’t content to build a huge military while not using it. Indeed, Trump is already using it, notably in Yemen, pursuing policies that are fated to perpetuate warfare around the globe. And it’s hardly encouraging that, after the failed Yemen raid, Trump shifted the blame to his generals rather than taking it himself. Remember what Sun Tzu warned about vanity as well as perpetual warfare, especially when your own people are increasingly divided? Something tells me this lesson is lost on Trump, Bannon, and crew. Embracing the stratagems of The Art of War, its emphasis on surprise, subterfuge, deception, and quick strikes, is not enough. You must seek the wisdom at its core, which is very much against war except as a last resort. Know thyself, said Sun Tzu, echoing the Greek philosopher Socrates. Face yourself squarely, recognize your flaws, your vanity (“All is vanity,” say the Christian Bible, a book Trump professes to treasure), and be careful indeed in unleashing war. Do Trump, Bannon, and company know themselves, admit to their flaws and vanities, and recognize that war, in all its perils and costs, should be a course of last resort? So far, evidence is wanting.
