When students ask the question that is the title of this essay, which they frequently do, they are surprised to learn that scholars have been divided on the nature of capitalism and that, as of yet, no definitive answer is available. Let us sketch the main contours of the debate: if we view capitalism as an economic...Read more

In my opinion, it is hardly surprising that, when it comes to economic questions, the public discourse in this country habitually reproduces certain fallacies whose roots extend far back in time and which seem to have grown ever more popular in the years of crisis. It is more surprising, however, that some of our students who should know better subscribe to those same fallacies and misconceptions. In any case, I write this note to alert our students (or at least those who care about that sort of thing) to the kind of nonsense which currently passes for conventional wisdom. In the present context the following examples must suffice.Read more

 It was not a long time ago that I came across an article in a well-respected Athenian newspaper which purported to explain the causes underlying the protracted plight of the Greek economy. Given that the author is a top economic adviser to one of Greece's principal political leaders (a self-proclaimed “reformist” one, to boot), I thought it would be worthwhile to read it. And so it was, though not for the reasons one might have expected.  Indeed, if one had anticipated novel ideas and innovative policy proposals such were not forthcoming; instead, the author's proposed explanation reiterated the anti-austerity mantra that has been incessantly repeated since the (perceived) onset of the crisis in 2010. Read more

It appears that Greece is transitioning into a status where digital entertainment is considered a viable option for the development of the recovering economy. The introduction of law 4487/2017 is a prominent start. Furthermore, Athens Games Festival 2017 that took place on 28/29 October 2017, provided some useful insight regarding the present and the future of the Greek Gaming Industry.

Recently, a significant step was made to open...Read more

Η οικονομική ανάπτυξη της Κίνας είναι αδιαμφισβήτητη. Τα προηγούμενα χρόνια το Ακαθάριστο Εθνικό Προϊόν της (Α.Ε.Π.) αυξάνονταν με τους ταχύτερους ρυθμούς διεθνώς (πάνω από 10% ετησίως). Δικαιολογημένα η Κίνα ανήκει στους BRICS (Βραζιλία, Ρωσία, Ινδία, Κίνα και Νότια Αφρική) και στους G-20 (οι 20 μεγαλύτερες οικονομίες του πλανήτη). Βέβαια, τελευταία η οικονομία της παρουσιάζει σημάδια κόπωσης και οι ρυθμοί ανάπτυξης έχουν μειωθεί αισθητά. Read more

Από τις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα, οι προεδρικές εκλογές στην Αμερική ενθουσίαζαν το κοινό τόσο εντός όσο και εκτός των Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών. Πόσο μάλλον σήμερα, που οι ειδήσεις είναι κατά πολλούς ένα κυλιόμενο σόου, με κάθε 24ωρο να φέρνει τα δικά του «sound bytes» και «top stories». Με την νίκη της Δύσης στον Ψυχρό Πόλεμο και την πτώση της...Read more
