Environmental Econ: Crash Course Economics #22
 
08:23
So, if economics is about choices and how we use our resources, econ probably has a lot to say about the environment, right? Right! In simple terms, pollution is just a market failure. The market is producing more pollution than society wants. This week, Adriene and Jacob focus on the environment, and how economics can be used to control and reduce pollution and emissions. You'll learn about supply and demand, incentives, and how government intervention influences the environment. Crash Course is on Patreon!

021 - Environmental Economics In this video Paul Andersen explains how economic models, like supply and demand, can be applied to environmental systems. The market forces will not protect environmental services until proper valuation and externalities are established. The wealth of a nation can be more accurately measured through the sustainability of the economic model. Do you speak another language?

Tragedy of the Commons │ The Problem with Open Access
 
03:27
The semantics of the model I'm working from use common goods/common property/ common pool resources (resources used by multiple people) and common property regimes (the institutions or social arrangements between people, the property rights regarding common pool resources). We were taught that "the commons" is sort of an old term. It has issues because it blankets both common pool resources with no communication, no rules, no accountability, no punishment for those who break the rules, etc. (open access) and common pool resources with some cooperation or institution in place (common property regimes). When you get away from those aspects that allow people to trust one another and work together, the system looks like an open access system. The tragedy of the commons model describes what happens in that open access system. But not what happens when a common property regime is in place. But the term "commons" doesn't distinguish between the two.

Factors of Production (Resources) There 4 factors of production, namely, land/raw materials, labor, capital and entrepreneurship. Why is entrepreneurship considered a type of resource? Well, because an entrepreneur brings other 3 factors of production (land/raw materials, capital and labor) together to make production possible. Why is money not considered a type of resource in economics? What is the difference between economic capital and financial capital?

What Is Sustainability?
 
09:44
This video provides a basic definition of sustainability. You’ve probably heard the term “sustainability” in some context or another. It is likely that you’ve used some product or service that was labeled as sustainable, or perhaps you are aware of a campus or civic organization that focuses on sustainability. You may recognize that sustainability has to do with preserving or maintaining resources—we often associate sustainability with things like recycling, using renewable energy sources like solar and wind power, and preserving natural spaces like rainforests and coral reefs. However, unless you have an inherent interest in sustainability, you probably haven’t thought much about what the term actually means. Simply put, sustainability is the capacity to endure or continue. If a product or activity is sustainable, it can be reused, recycled, or repeated in some way because it has not exhausted all of the resources or energy required to create it. Sustainability can be broadly defined as the ability of something to maintain itself. Biological systems such as wetlands or forests are good examples of sustainability since they remain diverse and productive over long periods of time. Seen in this way, sustainability has to do with preserving resources and energy over the long term rather than exhausting them quickly to meet short-term needs or goals. The term sustainability first appeared in forestry studies in Germany in the 1800s, when forest overseers began to manage timber harvesting for continued use as a resource. In 1804, German forestry researcher Georg Hartig described sustainability as “utilizing forests to the greatest possible extent, but still in a way that future generations will have as much benefit as the living generation” (Schmutzenhofer 1992). While our current definitions are quite different and much expanded from Hartig’s, sustainability still accounts for the need to preserve natural spaces, to use resources wisely, and to maintain them in an equitable manner for all human beings, both now and in the future. Sustainability seeks new ways of addressing the relationship between societal growth and environmental degradation, which would allow human societies and economies to grow without destroying or overexploiting the environment or ecosystems in which those societies exist. The most widely quoted definition of sustainability comes from the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations in 1987, which defined sustainability as meeting “the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” But sustainability is about more than just the economic benefits of recycling materials and resources. While the economic factors are important, sustainability also accounts for the social and environmental consequences of human activity. This concept is referred to as the “three pillars of sustainability,” which asserts that true sustainability depends upon three interlocking factors: environmental preservation, social equity, and economic viability. First, sustainable human activities must protect the earth’s environment. Second, people and communities must be treated fairly and equally—particularly in regard to eradicating global poverty and the environmental exploitation of poor countries and communities. And third, sustainability must be economically feasible—human development depends upon the long-term production, use, and management of resources as part of a global economy. Only when all three of these pillars are incorporated can an activity or enterprise be described as sustainable. Some describe this three-part model as: Planet, People and Profit. From pollution, to resource depletion, to loss of biodiversity, to climate change, a growing human footprint is evident. This is not sustainable. We need to act differently if the world and its human and non-human inhabitants are to thrive in the future. Sustainability is about how we can preserve the earth and ensure the continued survival and nourishment of future generations. You and everyone you know will be affected in some way by the choices our society makes in the future regarding the earth and its resources. In fact, your very life may well depend upon those choices.

Labor Markets and Minimum Wage: Crash Course Economics #28
 
10:38
How much should you get paid for your job? Well, that depends on a lot of factors. Your skill set, the demand for the skills you have, and what other people are getting paid around you all factor in. In a lot of ways, labor markets work on supply and demand, just like many of the markets we talk about in Crash Course Econ. But, again, there aren't a lot of pure, true markets in the world. There are all kinds of oddities and regulations that change the way labor markets work. One common (and kind of controversial one) is the minimum wage. The minimum wage has potential upsides and downsides, and we'll take a look at the various arguments for an against it. Crash Course is on Patreon!

Can Our Economies Grow Forever? | Paul Ekins | TEDxUCL
 
16:56
As human economies grow, they use more and more natural resources and increase their impacts of the environment. The question arises as to whether continuing economic growth is a realistic objective on a finite planet. Theoretically it is possible for economic growth to continue indefinitely and in some places economic growth has been accompanied by reductions in environmental impacts. However, strong public policies are required to bring such developments about. At present most countries do not have the requisite policies in place, but with political will there is no reason why rising prosperity, resource conservation and environmental improvements should not be simultaneously achieved. Paul Ekins has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of London and is Professor of Resources and Environmental Policy and Director of the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources at University College London. He is also a Co-Director of the UK Energy Research Centre. Paul Ekins’ academic work, published in numerous books, articles and scientific papers, focuses on the conditions and policies for achieving an environmentally sustainable economy. His book Economic Growth and Environmental Sustainability: the Prospects for Green Growth appeared in 2000. In the UK New Year’s Honours List for 2015 he received an OBE for services to environmental policy This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Geography and Economic Growth
 
02:48
If you look at the African continent, perhaps the first word to come to mind is "enormous." And that's true. You could fit most of the United States, China, India, and a lot of Europe, into Africa. But if you compare Africa to Europe, Europe has two to three times the length of coastline that Africa has. But what does coastline length have to do with anything? Well, coasts mean access to water. As benign as water might seem, it’s a major driver of economic growth. Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, argued that access to water reduced the cost of trade, and gave merchants access to larger markets. These larger markets incentivized specialization and innovation. These twin processes ultimately spurred trade activity, and consequently, economic growth. As an end result, civilization tended to grow wherever trade was easiest. If you want proof of this, think of a few major cities. Look at Istanbul, New York, Venice, Hong Kong, London, and similar areas. What do they all have in common? They all sit near a major coast or a major river. In contrast, look at some of the poorest areas in the world—places like Kampala, or Pointe-Noire. These places are all landlocked. Since goods are easier to transport over water than over land, trade in landlocked areas is more expensive. And what happens when trade is more expensive? It becomes harder to spark economic growth. What this all means is economic growth is not only affected by a country’s rules and institutions, but by a country’s natural blessings, or natural hindrances, too. The effects of geography on growth cannot be discounted.

Education and the quality of knowledge represent the most important Human assets. Human Rights need to be respected by parents first of all. Strong polarization of wealth, abusive exploitation of natural resources including human resources, excessive material accumulation hinder the free economic flow and is unethical. Social segregation, unrest and conflicts are further damaging the equilibrium. Freedom and democracy needs to be understood and revised. The "occupy movement" is a voice that needs to be listen to. The Social Metabolism and the Social Contract need to be taken seriously in order to assure peace and a sustainable social and economic development at the Global level. An urgent and closer look at Human Rights principles is a must. Human Rights need to be a section of a future Universal Declaration of Natural Rights. Fighting Nature is a historical human endeavor for which we just recently started to see the beginning of its outcome. Public health, ecological systems and global economics, being intimately interconnected, undergo a cycle of crises that I take the freedom to call "The Bermuda Triangle of Human Endeavors". Planet Earth offers us as Humanity the means to support our very material existence. Health and ecology together are the primary life supporting elements that form the structures of a sustainable social and economic development. Deprivation of proper living conditions represents an acute denial of Human Rights. No one has the right to deprive others from the inherited Natural Rights, the rights to exist. The economic principles need to be brought up to date and restructured such as to observe the non-monetary values going beyond Human Rights. For the economic system to be sustainable it needs to use a currency that has a sustainable etalon as reference. Life Equivalent Etalons (LEE) can assure economic and international stability as they are fixed and indispensable. Each one of us is responsible for the global economy as it is an expression of human endeavor and its dynamics, more so in the context of globalization. The laws governing natural economic flow are recommended to be used as model for a sustainable anthropogenic economy. Life can't be monopolized. Biodiversity has a paramount importance to sustainable development. This article is intended to be the first in a series of applicative works based on the Triangular Eco-Kinematics Theory "TEKT" proposed here as foundation for global cooperation mechanisms. It is an urgent call for global anthropogenic economic reforms. Planet Earth can sustain a maximum population load if it's properly managed.

Agricultural Economics Definition | Definition & Explanation of Agriculture Economics (Audio Book)
 
10:06
Agricultural Economics Definition | Definition & Explanation of Agriculture Economics (Audio Book) Agricultural economics or agronomics is an applied field of economics, concerned with the application of economic theory in optimizing the production and distribution of food and fibre—a discipline known as agronomics. Agronomics was a branch of economics that specifically dealt with land usage. It focused on maximizing the crop yield while maintaining a good soil ecosystem. Throughout the 20th century the discipline expanded and the current scope of the discipline is much broader. Agricultural economics today includes a variety of applied areas, having considerable overlap with conventional economics. Agricultural economists have made substantial contributions to research in economics, econometrics, development economics, and environmental economics. Agricultural economics influences food policy, agricultural policy, and environmental policy. Economics has been defined as the study of resource allocation under scarcity. Agronomics, or the application of economic methods to optimizing the decisions made by agricultural producers, grew to prominence around the turn of the 20th century. The field of agricultural economics can be traced out to works on land economics. Henry Charles Taylor was the greatest contributor with the establishment of the Department of Agricultural Economics at Wisconsin in 1909. Another contributor, 1979 Nobel Economics Prize winner Theodore Schultz, was among the first to examine development economics as a problem related directly to agriculture. Schultz was also instrumental in establishing econometrics as a tool for use in analyzing agricultural economics empirically; he noted in his landmark 1956 article that agricultural supply analysis is rooted in "shifting sand", implying that it was and is simply not being done correctly. One scholar summarizes the development of agricultural economics as follows: "Agricultural economics arose in the late 19th century, combined the theory of the firm with marketing and organization theory, and developed throughout the 20th century largely as an empirical branch of general economics. The discipline was closely linked to empirical applications of mathematical statistics and made early and significant contributions to econometric methods. In the 1960s and afterwards, as agricultural sectors in the OECD countries contracted, agricultural economists were drawn to the development problems of poor countries, to the trade and macroeconomic policy implications of agriculture in rich countries, and to a variety of production, consumption, and environmental and resource problems." Agricultural economists have made many well-known contributions to the economics field with such models as the cobweb model, hedonic regression pricing models, new technology and diffusion models (Zvi Griliches), productivity and efficiency theory and measurement, and the random coefficients regression. The farm sector is frequently cited as a prime example of the perfect competition economic paradigm. In Asia, agricultural economics was offered first by the University of the Philippines Los Baños Department of Agricultural Economics in 1919. Today, the field of agricultural economics has transformed into a more integrative discipline which covers farm management and production economics, rural finance and institutions, agricultural marketing and prices, agricultural policy and development, food and nutrition economics, and environmental and natural resource economics. Since the 1970s, agricultural economics has primarily focused on seven main topics, according to a scholar in the field: agricultural environment and resources; risk and uncertainty; food and consumer economics; prices and incomes; market structures; trade and development; and technical change and human capital. In the field of environmental economics, agricultural economists have contributed in three main areas: designing incentives to control environmental externalities (such as water pollution due to agricultural production), estimating the value of non-market benefits from natural resources and environmental amenities (such as an appealing rural landscape), and the complex interrelationship between economic activities and environmental consequences. With regard to natural resources, agricultural economists have developed quantitative tools for improving land management, preventing erosion, managing pests, protecting biodiversity, and preventing livestock diseases. ..................................................................................

Complexity Economics Overview
 
06:00
See the full course: https://systemsacademy.io/courses/complexity-theory/ Twitter: http://bit.ly/2HobMld Short overview to the area of complexity economics and heterodox economics. Transcription: Complexity economics is a new paradigm within economic theory that see the economy as a complex adaptive systems, composed of multiple diverse agents interaction through networks and evolving overtime. It is one of a number of alternative economic theories that have arisen over the past few decade, due to a growing wariness to the limitations of our existing economic theory. So lets first talk a bit about this standard approach to economic theory. The foundations to modern economics date back to the 18th century where it borrowed much of the formal apparatus of mathematics and the natural sciences, especially from physics with its classical mechanistic view of the world in terms of linear deterministic cause and effect. Within this paradigm of classical economics individual human behavior is comparable to the physical laws of motion, it is both regular, predictable and largely deterministic, meaning the standard tools of mathematic can be applied. Classical economics models the economy as a closed system, that is to say separate from social, environmental and cultural factors, which are not include in the models thus the social domain is constituted by sets of isolated individuals that are governed purely by economic self-interest. Similar to classical physics equilibrium is a fundamental assumption of many economic models, according to the equilibrium paradigm, there are optimal states to the economy, to which the system will automatically and quickly evolve, driven by the market forces of supply and demand. This idea is enshrined in the metaphor of the 'invisible hand'. Lastly standard economic inherited the reductionist view of classical physics implying that the behavior of a society and its institutions does not differ in kind from the sum of its individual agents, thus the behavior of all the agents together can be treated as corresponding to that of an average individual. By applying these assumption standard economics has converted what was once a branch of moral philosophy into a powerful framework based upon formal mathematics, that has proven to be a solid foundation in supported the massive economic transformation that was the industrial revolution. Today major trends such as the rapid development of our global economy, the rise of financial capitalism, the huge growth in the services, knowledge and information economy and environmental awareness are all working to reveal the limitations in the foundation assumptions of classical economics. In response to these changes a number of new economic theories have emerged Under the heading of heterodox economics, that all emphasize a need for an expansion of our economic framework to incorporate new social, cultural and environmental parameters to give a more realistic vision of how economies functions in practice. Primary among these is behavioral economics that ties to go beyond the classical model of the individual motivated by rational self-interest to incorporate a richer set of cultural and social motives driving individuals behavior. Or environmental economics is another area, that tries to address the failure of the current framework to incorporate the value accruing from natural resources and ecosystems services. Complexity economics is part of this alternative theoretical framework, Representing a new paradigm that sees the economy as a complex adaptive system, composed of multiple agents with diverse motives, whose interaction within networks give rise to emergent structures such as enterprises and markets. Instead of seeing the economy as the product of isolated individuals making rational choices with perfect information resulting in efficiency markets, complexity economics see the individual as embed within social and cultural networks that influence there behavior and with limited information that often leads them to make apparently irrational actions, resulting in suboptimal markets. As opposed to seeing the economy as the product of a static equilibrium Complexity economics instead is more focus upon the non-equilibrium processes that transform the economy from within, through continuous adaptation and the emergence of new institutions and technologies as the economy evolves over time. Complexity economic applies this concept of evolution to understanding the dynamics of economic development, which is understood as a process of differentiation, selection and amplification, acting on designs for technologies, social institutions and businesses that drives continuous change within the economy.. see http://www.fotonlabs.com for full transcrition Twitter: http://bit.ly/2TTjlDH Facebook: http://bit.ly/2TXgrOo LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/2TPqogN

What's Wrong With Wakanda?
 
11:09
Wakanda could never exist in the real world. Wakanda is frustrating because it perpetuates the myth that an abundance of a really valuable natural resource is all you need to create a prosperous and extremely advanced society. This is simply not true. Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist, wrote about how isolationism actually leads to a regress in technology. Check out these other articles to learn more about isolationism and protectionism: The Case Against Protectionism by Larry Reed https://fee.org/articles/the-case-against-protectionism/ Herbert Spencer Was Right: Protectionism Is Really Aggression-ism by Gary M.

Water Resources
 
11:38
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Population, Sustainability, and Malthus: Crash Course World History 215
 
12:51
In which John Green teaches you about population. So, how many people can reasonably live on the Earth? Thomas Malthus got it totally wrong in the 19th century, but for some reason, he keeps coming up when we talk about population. In 1800, the human population of the Earth passed 1 billion, and Thomas Malthus posited that growth had hit its ceiling, and the population would level off and stop growing. He was totally right. Just kidding, he was totally wrong! There are like 7 billion people on the planet now! John will teach a little about how Malthus made his calculations, and explain how Malthus came up with the wrong answer. As is often the case, it has to do with making projections based on faulty assumptions. Man, people do that a lot.

Monopolies and Anti-Competitive Markets: Crash Course Economics #25

What is a monopoly? It turns out, it's more than just a board game. It's a terrible, terrible economic practice in which giant corporations dominate markets and hurt consumers. Except when it isn't. In some industries, monopolies are the most efficient way to do business. Utilities like electricity, water, and broadband internet access are probably less efficiently delivered in competitive markets. Come along, and let us monopolize your attention for a few minutes.

Dr. Lalita Rammont, IUCN - Economic Instruments for Natural Resources Management
 
13:17
PEI supports six countries in Asia Pacific to achieve Sustainable Development by integrating ecological, climate and fairness concerns into national, subnational and sectoral economic decision making and planning processes. The programme supports Ministries of Finance, Planning and Local Government to direct public and private investments to achieve greener, more inclusive economies. PEI's impact on institutions, policies and investments is the result of a wide range of interventions. These vary from capacity building for decision makers in sustainability and climate change adaptation; to producing sound economic research and analysis; tracking public spending on climate change; improving enforcement of environmental regulations.

Environmental economics: Principles, practices, and FAQs
 
37:35
In this lecture, Dr. Jim Boyd presents an overview of the philosophical foundations of economics, theories for setting market values, and perceptions of non-economists to economic research and analysis. He starts with highlighting three key theoretical assumptions made by economists, that individuals are self-interested, rational actors and work toward maximizing benefits. He stresses that economics is not just about maximizing money or profits, and emphasizes the balance of efficiency and equity that underlies economic analysis. He then presents the basic building blocks of economic analysis, supply and demand curves, and notes that there are many examples of economic activity where these curves and the preferences they reflect are not sufficient to explain empirical outcomes. He ends with discussion of public goods and ways to understand human decision-making that is less than optimal from an economic viewpoint.

Brought to you by: Dogon and the Mali Mafia (Physical) http://bit.ly/2Wlbv6H | Dogon and the Mali Mafia (Digital) http://bit.ly/2FmuEOE ---------------------------- The Nummo World Order: The First Garment (The First Word) Birth of the Pale Fox...Death of Venus Before his death in 2011 Gaddafi envisioned a united Africa under one leader with a new Africa currency backed by Africa’s natural resources. Gaddafi new that in order to accomplish this he would have to take on the Global powers that be. He knew from a military and technical standpoint he would have to rely on outside help. Working with Castro they used the Shabaka stone and knowledge from Memphite Theology/Unified Grand Theory to unlock ancient knowledge and get in contact with the Nummo. The Nummo provided Gaddafi with all the advance technical knowledge he would need to accomplish this with one condition...His UAC once in power would prepare the way for the Nummo’s return to reset the balance of mankind through a period of domination and rule. Gaddafi knew in order to finance his plan and create the technology needed the new currency would be crucial. Unfortunately he could not fully finalize his plans and start the process before his death in 2011. Castro took up the task and unfortunately could not finalize everything either. However 23 years after Castro’s death and through the use of Libyan and Cuban secret societies the plans were finally put into effect and the beginning of the UAC had begun. The year is 2099 and idea of Gaddafi’s united countries of Africa is a reality and it also marks the end of The Sigui. All countries united with one African president and an African currency based and backed on Africa’s natural resources. The Dogon-Mali Mafia is the UAC (United African Countries) organized crime syndicate created to ensure the global interest of the UAC throughout the world. One of the members was excommunicated from the Mafia due to ongoing disagreements with the Mafia’s methods throughout the world. He was thought to have been killed by the Mafia but returned as a member of the Amma Sect. He was revived and endowed with mystical powers by the Ancestor Lebe Serou and became a Hogon. With his newly found powers he seeks to continue to fight for injustices in the UAC and all mankind as well as deal with the Mali Mafia headed by the 4 brothers along side the Knights of The Nummo. Welcome to the Nummo World Order.
