A world becoming cashless Description and analysis

Author: Henrik Fürst
Publisher: GRIN Verlag
ISBN: 9783668397866
Release Date: 2017-02-15
Genre: Business & Economics

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 10,0, University of Southern Denmark, language: English, abstract: The history of the evolution of money also shows how the human beings developed itself on a mental way. Starting with a so called "Barter economy" where for example animals like cows and sheep where used as kind of "currency" or rather "exchange product", years later going over to using shells as currency and finally ended up with money as we know it today, as paper- and metal-money. As mentioned, bartering where a common way of "paying", which basically means, that to receive some goods, you had to give some other goods. To avoid disagreements of the value of different goods, commodity money was invented. Commodity money were daily goods, like salt. That some commodity goods brought problems like the size or defensibility, was found out later. The Lydian's were the first folk, who invented coins. Decades later the Chinese were the first ones, who invented paper money. This invention of coins, named commodity money, quick became a worldwide used item. From now on, a "customers" needs could easier be fulfilled, since there was something that had a certain value. By inventing the first representative money, the society especially in Europe where allowed to enter a totally new era. Banks created the first so-called currency market, international trade activities where possible and the value of a countries currency depended on its political behavior. During the 17th century, commodity money slowly got replaced by representative money, since global bank and trade networks were steadily increased. Representative money is in form of paper bills or guarantees of the bank. Later the value of money for the first time was tied up to gold, the gold standard. Since the economy kept on growing, representative money got replaced by fiat money. Enforceable legal tender laws have been made, which basically means that the money's value is given by the governments decree and fiat. Free capital was invented. The growth of economic sectors was significantly fostered by this invention, but also the chance to make debts.

The Flame of Eternity

Author: Krzysztof Michalski
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 9781400840212
Release Date: 2011-12-05
Genre: Philosophy

The Flame of Eternity provides a reexamination and new interpretation of Nietzsche's philosophy and the central role that the concepts of eternity and time, as he understood them, played in it. According to Krzysztof Michalski, Nietzsche's reflections on human life are inextricably linked to time, which in turn cannot be conceived of without eternity. Eternity is a measure of time, but also, Michalski argues, something Nietzsche viewed first and foremost as a physiological concept having to do with the body. The body ages and decays, involving us in a confrontation with our eventual death. It is in relation to this brute fact that we come to understand eternity and the finitude of time. Nietzsche argues that humanity has long regarded the impermanence of our life as an illness in need of curing. It is this "pathology" that Nietzsche called nihilism. Arguing that this insight lies at the core of Nietzsche's philosophy as a whole, Michalski seeks to explain and reinterpret Nietzsche's thought in light of it. Michalski maintains that many of Nietzsche's main ideas--including his views on love, morality (beyond good and evil), the will to power, overcoming, the suprahuman (or the overman, as it is infamously referred to), the Death of God, and the myth of the eternal return--take on new meaning and significance when viewed through the prism of eternity.

Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim „Carpool Karaoke“ und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen – mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte – in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.

China and the International System

Author: Xiaoming Huang
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781136756399
Release Date: 2013-03-20
Genre: Social Science

This book considers the evolving relationship between China and the international system, and the interaction between a China of profound change in its identity, capability, and influence, and an international system that is itself experiencing a process of far-reaching transformation. It develops an analytical framework that allows us to capture, understand and explain a more dynamic pattern of agent-structure interaction in China’s relationship with the international system. By demonstrating a more dynamic and mutually constitutive relationship between China and the international system, the book explores the extent to which both transform themselves in the process, and provides a fuller and more effective assessment of the evolving nature of the relationship. In doing so, it addresses key issues in the current literature on the relationship of China and the international system, and helps close the gap in our knowledge of the conditions and consequences of change and stability in the international system as a result of the change in distributions of power, capability and influence among nation-states.

Nietzsche s Ontology

Author: Laird Addis
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 9783110321760
Release Date: 2012-01-01
Genre: Philosophy

Although there is a huge literature on Nietzsche’s philosophy, this is the first study in English that focuses on his ontology. Before proceeding to that ontology, Addis argues that, contrary to many commentators, Nietzsche defends both the possibility and the desirability of objectivity in the search for knowledge, including knowledge of the basic features of reality, that is, of ontology. In separate chapters, Addis then sets out, analyzes, and evaluates the five essential components of Nietzsche’s ontology: constant change, substances and things, minds, causation, and will to power. In each case, Addis contributes an original understanding of the feature under discussion, with more detail than exists in other treatments, and defended with quotes from relevant texts of Nietzsche.

The Silence of Adam

Author: Lawrence J. Crabb
Publisher: Zondervan

Release Date: 1998-03-01
Genre: Religion

Men today have locked horns with their toughest issue: reclaiming the full potential of manhood. But in the midst of the excitement -- the meetings, rallies, seminars, and high-fives -- is something vital missing? What gives manhood definition and meaning? In The Silence of Adam, Dr. Larry Crabb and his colleagues, biblical scholar Don Hudson and counselor Al Andrews, offer a fresh look at how God designed men. They draw from neglected biblical data and their own professional experience to help us explore - manhood's lost vision - the problems of masculine community - the power of mentoring relationships -- The Silence of Adam deals thoughtfully and honestly with men's ongoing struggles and exposes the difficulties they have in relationships. It presents the rich calling men have to reveal God in ways uniquely masculine. And it summons them beyond their paralyzing fear of failure to bold risk-taking, action, deep spirituality, and full-hearted living.
