Address: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

Our economic system often features opposing interests; workers who want more pay, capitalists who want more interest, shareholders who want more profits, and landowners who want more rent. In Germany, businesses adopt a different mindset; emphasizing the long term, placing great value on relationships with employees, customers, and suppliers, and commitment to the wider community.

Germany’s small and medium size enterprises (“SMEs”), known as “Mittelstand” range across the country. They are unique to Germany, and the backbone of its strong economy.

In this seminar, Michael Bucher presents several case studies in Germany’s “Mittelstand” and examines their underlying concepts, characteristics, and how they thrive in competitive markets while being socially responsible.

Michael Bucher is currently a freelance researcher/writer for Shanghai Business Review, writing on topics in business, trade, and international relations relating to China.

Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm

    THE FED’S OTHER MANDATE: FACILITATING AND REGULATING WAGE SLAVERY


    This talk continues our analysis of macroeconomics begun in January with our lecture “The Fed Has Lost Control of the Money Supply.” Just as the previous talk explored emergent properties in the Fed’s management of the money supply which were evident to a Semantic Analyst but were not otherwise perceived by conventional macroeconomics, this talk will focus on similar emergent properties of the Fed’s efforts to control unemployment.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.

    Instructor: Dr. W. E. Perry

    FULL ACCESS OR FULL EMPLOYMENT: THE MACROECONOMICS OF UBI


    Universal Basic Income (otherwise known as basic income, or UBI) is a regular cash payout delivered to all on an unconditional basis, without means-test or work requirement. In popular discourse, UBI is often framed as a supplement or alternative to existing social safety net programs. This talk will present a different perspective, and explore the potential of UBI as an alternative form of macroeconomic policy: a different way of managing aggregate spending, the money supply, and overall financial conditions.

    The speaker, Derek Van Gorder is an independent scholar and co-founder of the Greshm Institute, a non-profit organization devoted to promoting serious discussion on the economics of Universal Basic Income. He is currently writing a series of essays on the mechanics of UBI policy. Recorded discussions and debates with Derek relating to economics can be found on his YouTube channel.
