Banking, Digitalisation and Inequality: Future Perspective

Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIR) is on the door step. Income inequality and global warming is on the top of future challenges. There is a close link between financial system, digitalisation and economic inequality. Before looking in to future, I think, we better start reviewing the past; specially the globalisation era how it went. I picked up some books to see the way of development and thinking … Continue reading Banking, Digitalisation and Inequality: Future Perspective

Philanthropy for an equitable society

Inequality, today, is intolerable. During globalisation private investment was highly encouraged for profit and the role of government was defined as a coordinator and welfare provider. Private sector obviously as a profit maker has done tremendous progress, but government is forced to apply austerity measures and now ‘welfare state’ is being questioned. Since global financial crisis began in 2007 the world economy has been hanging on the cliff to get up … Continue reading Philanthropy for an equitable society

Brexit was an outcome of a divided campaign within the Tories

Now, the UK has decided to leave the EU following the results from the referendum. People’s verdict is always supreme; everyone should respect the mandate. But the Brexit was an outcome of a divided campaign within the Conservative party i.e. Prime Minister vs Ex-Mayor of London. Also I think, election time is not good as people are disappointed with austerity measures and the European Union (EU). The EU was unable to sort out the problems of austerity, migrants, financial crisis and so on.  This massage should be communicated to … Continue reading Brexit was an outcome of a divided campaign within the Tories

UK economy: after Brexit | The Guardian

The UK economy will have to weather a short, sharp shock, with Brexit uncertainty holding back both business investment and consumer spending, according to a leading economic forecasting group. As forecasters cut growth expectations, a survey of finance chiefs showed caution increasing since the referendum, and retailers reported fewer shoppers on the high street than a year ago. Severe dents to confidence mean the post-referendum economy is … Continue reading UK economy: after Brexit | The Guardian

What Every Remain Voter Should Know Before June 23rd | HUFFPOST

The EU is capable of change, but in only one way; to grab more power from the member states. Democratic reform within the EU is an impossibility. Britain, one of the EU’s biggest donors, asked for reform, and, even when faced with the prospect of Brexit, the EU could offer us virtually nothing. The Lisbon Treaty gave the EU all the trappings of a nation state, and specifies that the EU is sovereign authority in all areas except those where it has chosen not to legislate. If you’re staying in the EU in the misguided belief that you can reform it, you fail to understand sixty years of history; we will be crushed by an unstoppable bureaucracy.

What message does Hillary Clinton have for Monica Lewinsky?

This time I have been thinking about some strange things of Hillary Clinton for her candidacy as the first woman president in the US and on the other hand I have been thinking the impeachment against then President Bill Clinton. Impeachment was based on allegations that President Clinton had illegally lied about and covered up his relationship with 22-year-old White House (and later Department of … Continue reading What message does Hillary Clinton have for Monica Lewinsky?
