Japan's Economic Evolution

Monday, April 25, 2016 4:38:00 PM America/Denver

If we measure by nominal GDP, the three largest economies in the world belong to the United States, China, and Japan. Japan, though, didn’t always have the foundation to be such an economic powerhouse. The country has had an interesting journey from being an imperialist theocracy that fought against the Allied powers in World War II, to near economic annihilation, to surprising success in the post-war period. Here is some surprising information about Japan’s period of economic evolution that they have experienced in the time since WWII...

Growth Is Relative

Thursday, April 21, 2016 4:35:00 PM America/Denver

Today, we measure the health and success of national economies (as well as regional economies) by the growth of their GDP. The thinking is that the more a country is able to grow its GDP, the better that country must be doing at individual factors, such as trade, employment, and industrialization. However, it’s important to note that growth is only one piece of an enormous economic pie. GDP growth is a relative factor to many different things; it’s just one that is more easily digestible to analyze. Here’s some information on the relativity of growth...

China's Growth Problem

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 4:24:00 PM America/Denver

China’s economy is everybody’s problem. The two highest purchasing powers in the world, the United States and the European Union, both depend on China’s highly lucrative manufacturing industry to fuel many business endeavors. The relative size of China’s economy and population makes it a force of nature in global economic networks. If China experiences a slowdown, it has a ripple effect across the entire globe that must be dealt with. Ironically, the explosive growth that grew China to this level of economic importance might be the very thing that causes it to slow down, and put the entire global economy into question. Here’s some information on China’s growth problem...

Rostow's Stages of Economic Growth pt. 2

Saturday, April 9, 2016 4:18:00 PM America/Denver

This is a continuation of Rostow’s Stages of Economic Growth pt. 1

Maturity

After the initial take-off, an economy much move towards a maturity stage, or else it runs the risk of major instability and contraction, after the initial boom. The industrial sector of the economy begins to diversify and take over multiple industries. New methods of production and technologies begin to develop at a rate that was previously unprecedented. The consumer base of the economy has achieved an incredibly high purchasing power that allows currency to circulate, quickly. This means that most manufacturing begins to focus on this new consumer base. Infrastructure begins to exponentially expand, so that this growth can be enjoyed by the entire geographic area of the economy. This means that transportation modes must be implemented, immediately. Other social programs, such as primary and secondary educational institutions are invested in, as well as investments towards a healthier population, such as hospitals.

Rostow's Stages of Economic Growth pt. 1

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 4:10:00 PM America/Denver

One of the most important elements of economics is the ability to map out the path to economic growth and prosperity. This, historically, has proven to be a rather difficult thing to do, as there are many factors and ideologies that go into the equation of growth. What works for one country may not work for another, due to geographic, political, or religious factors. However, one major model for mapping this growth is Rostow’s Stages of Economic Growth, which was put forward by Walt Whitman Rostow in the 1960’s. Here is the framework that Rostow laid out...

Rebuilding Economies in the Middle East

Friday, April 1, 2016 3:51:50 PM America/Denver

In the past decade, many countries in the Middle East have struggled with economic development. This isn’t necessarily a new phenomenon, however, as several countries in the region have always struggled to gain an economic footing, for a variety of reasons. However, many countries have certainly regressed on some economic progress that was made. This leads to the current imperative that exists in the sociopolitical arena to rebuild many of these economies. By further achieving economic stability in the Middle East, along with the current growth of middle African countries, the world moves closer to a more global, stable economy that supports more and more of the world’s population. Here is some information on what must happen to rebuild several of these Middle Eastern economies...

Friday, March 25, 2016 11:16:19 AM America/Denver

What is it, exactly, that separates rich countries from poor countries? According to Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters of U.S. Army Intelligence, there are several characteristics that have been prevalent in countries that have struggled economically, around the world.

The Types of Game Theory

Monday, March 21, 2016 5:26:31 PM America/Denver

On this blog, we have recently discussed what game theory is, and how it it is used in economic theory to predict actions of certain economic players. However, it is important to address that there are many different models that are used within game Thierry, far more than just the standard model of zero-sum games that we've discussed before. These different types of models are good for figuring out different types of scenarios, and can each address a specific issue that the others might leave out. Here are several different types of game models in game theory...
