The nature of the housing bubble in both the U. Both the Democratic majority conclusions and Republican minority dissenting statement, representing the views of nine of the ten commissioners, concluded that government housing policies had little to do with the crisis. The majority report stated that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac "were not a primary cause of the crisis" and that the Community Reinvestment Act "was not a significant factor in subprime lending or the crisis. This tells us to look to the credit bubble as an essential cause of the U.
Introduction Despite 50 years of development experience, fundamental questions remain unanswered. The world still lacks a comprehensive theoretical framework that adequately explains such phenomenon as the accelerating velocity of development exhibited by East Asian countries, the failure of Malthusian projections, the growing contribution of non-material resources not subject to depletion, the apparent failure of market policies in the transition of Eastern Europe, and conflicting predictions about the future of work based on the contrary recent experiences of North America and Western Europe.
A profusion of economic theories provide explanations for specific expressions of development, but none unite the pieces into a unified theory that adequately defines the central principles, process and stages of development.
The formulation of a comprehensive theory of development would make conscious the world's experience over the past years, reveal enormous untapped potentials and vastly accelerate the speed of future progress.
This paper is identifies the central principle of development and traces its expression in different fields, levels and stages of expression. Development is a function of society's capacity to organize human energies and productive resources to respond to opportunities and challenges.
The paper traces the stages in the emergence of higher, more complex, more productive levels of social organization through the historical stages of nomadic hunting, rural agrarian, urban, commercial, industrial and post-industrial societies.
It examines the process by which new activities are introduced by pioneers, imitated, resisted, accepted, organized, institutionalized and assimilated into the culture. Organizational development takes place on a foundation of three levels of infrastructure - physical, organizational and mental.
Four types of resources contribute to development, of which only the most material are inherently limited in nature.
The productivity of resources increases enormously as the level of organization and input of knowledge rises. Historically, social development has passed through three progressive, but overlapping stages in which three different components of human consciousness served as primary engines for social advancement.
The paper draws parallels between the catalytic role of population growth, urbanization, the spread of a money economy, and, most recently, Internet as accelerators of the development process.
Looking backward, the development achievements of the world over the past five decades have been unprecedented and remarkable. Looking forward into the next century, daunting developmental challenges confront humanity.
Despite 50 years of intensive effort, the world is still blindly groping for adequate answers to fundamental questions about development and for effective strategies to accelerate the process.
Recent accomplishments point to the possibility of converting these 50 years of experience into a conscious and consistent theoretical knowledge. Impending challenges point to the need for a comprehensive theory of social development that will lead to the formulation of more effective strategies.
Observations and Questions about Recent Development Experience A few observations highlight some striking aspects of recent development experience that need to be theoretically understood and some perplexing questions that need to be answered to meet the opportunities and challenges of the coming years.
The world has made greater progress in eradicating poverty over the past 50 years than during the previous Over the past five decades, average per capita income in the world more than tripled, in spite of unprecedented population growth.
In developing countries, real per capita consumption rose by 70 percent between and What have been the principle reasons for this phenomenal progress?
What do these results augur for the coming decades? The pace of human development has increased dramatically and is still accelerating: It took the United Kingdom 58 years, beginning into double its output per capita. The United States did it in 47 years, beginning in Japan accomplished the feat in only 24 years, beginning in the s.
More remarkably, China has doubled in the past 10 years and is on course to double again in the next eight. During the period from toreal per capita standards of living based on purchasing power parity multiplied twelve-fold in South Korea, seven-fold in Japan, more than six-fold in Egypt and Portugal, and well above five-fold in Indonesia and Thailand.
These countries have demonstrated beyond doubt that much higher rates of growth are achievable than at any time in the past. What are the factors that make possible and limit this accelerated progress? What implications does it have for nations just entering the take-off stage?
The rate of growth differs widely among nations and communities and the differences appear to be widening: Between andper capita GDP rose by 5.Money lending has been a prominent activity and has flourished through time in the Philippines because of the country’s economic condition.
In turn, more people resort to the said activity; people who accumulate emergency expenses, paying bills, buying necessities, and small entrepreneurs. ABSTRACT: The main timberdesignmag.com means that financial intermediation is the process of taking in money from depositors and lending same to borrowers for investments which in turn help the economy to.

This lending could be on short, medium and/or long term basis is a major service rendered by the commercial terms of lending activities of various commercial banks, some opinions discussed on the factors responsible for.
Christianity considered as a slow, long-term injection of Jewish fiction into Europe, is new, at least to me: from this viewpoint, Christianity was a disaster, more or less comparable with modern-day effect of Jews as frauds, liars, and war-mongers, hating and trying to destroy Europe and timberdesignmag.coms, Popes and so on more or less correspond to 'politically correct' collaborators of Jews.
