    Noyabrın 14-də Azad Fikir Universitetinin İqtisadiyyat klubu özünün növbəti görüşünə toplandı. Bu dəfəki mövzu dövlət sərmayələri, klubun qonağı isə tanınmış iqtisadçı Elçin Rəşidov idi. Elçin Rəşidov ilk öncə sərmayə və onun fəlsəfəsi, sərmayələrin məqsəd və vəzifələri haqqında tələbələrə söhbət açdı. Daha sonra görüş iştirakçıları dövlət sərmayələri və özəl sərmayələr haqqında müzakirə apararaq onların fərqli və oxşar cəhətlərinə toxundular. Bazar iqtisadiyyatı şəraitində dövlət sərmayələrinə ehtiyac varmı? Niyə bəzi sahələrdən özəl sərmayələr qaçır və onların qaçdığı yerə dövlət sərmayəsinin istiqamətləndirilməsi nə dərəcədə düzgündür? Dövlət sərmayələri nə dərəcədə səmərəli olur? Klub üzvləri bu və digər suallar ətrafında müzakirələr aparmaqla yanaşı, Azərbaycanda dövlət sərmayələri haqqında da söhbət apardılar.

          Clive Spash, professor at Wirtschaftsuniversität (Vienna, Austria) About his lecture at the Degrowth Summer School 2014, Barcelona This lecture introduces some of the basic positions found in ecological economics concerning the problems of pursuing economic growth as found in modern industrialised societies. This starts from basic conceptualisation of the economy as an open system and embedded within a biophysical reality. Bringing in the laws of thermodynamics has some simple and far reaching consequences. Ecological economics has then, in part, emphasised limits to production and consumption on the basis of resource use and pollution production. However, ecological economics has also be susceptible to influence by those who a ready to conform to economic orthodoxy. Some such people regard themselves as being pragmatic. The result is bad theory and a denial of the need for radical change. In contrast I will introduce the inherent social and political aspects of economic growth to show how they challenge ecological economists to become more socially aware. This also means developing ecological economics as a critical social science.

                  Jose likes soccer. He likes his car. And he loves his family, which is why he left Mexico for the United States when he was 17, started working, and now sends about 20 percent of his pay to support them in Mexico. Like many of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, Jose came here for opportunities that don't exist at home. “We’re not criminals,” said Jose, which is not his real name. “We just come here to seek a better life.” Indeed, economic necessity is the reason people risk their lives to work in the United States. And contrary to rhetoric that immigrants steal American jobs and drive down wages, research shows that immigrant labor is a necessity to the U.S. economy: - The Arizona economy would shrink by $48.8 billion, or 20 percent, if all undocumented workers left the state (Immigration Policy Center, March 2011) - Immigration improves employment, productivity and income but needs adjustments that respond to the economic cycle (Migration Policy Institute, June 2010) - Hispanic immigrants contributed $9.2 billion to the North Carolina economy in 2006 and created 89,000 spinoff jobs (UNC-Chapel Hill's Kenan Flagler Business School, Jan. 2006) ++++++++++ Photography and Videography: Laura Elizabeth Pohl Multimedia Production and Additional Video: Brad Horn Additional Audio: Molly Marsh Interviews and Translation: Ivone Guillen Graphics: Hilary Kay Doran Music: Scabeater, Giorgio Boffa, Sambodhi Prem
