Floating Exchange Rates: The Only Viable Solution
... or unwritten targeting are impossible to maintain, especially
in an era of free trade. Complete monetary unification would be impossible to
bring about without extensive integration and unification of international
governments and economies, a task so vast that it is unlikely ever to be
accomplished. Thus, the only option central banks have is to allow exchange
rates to float freely.
The European Monetary System, which virtually collapsed in 1993, was an attempt
to fix exchange rates within certain tight bands, to coordinate monetary policy

stratification of these societies. Improved conditions of life led to somewhat
longer life spans. Nevertheless population growth remained low due to high
infant mortality rates. The impact of the neolithic revolution was not as much
on immediate population growth (even though it did have a long term impact on
population growth) as on the material and spiritual development of the human

Act Utilitarianism would not provide sufficient normative direction for our dilemma. This suggests that an act is said to be right if it is as good as any available alternative, because without performing the calculus either action is equally good. In this case, this implies similar consequences would result regardless of whether decisions are made cognitively or not. Thus, because no other rule applies, we will appeal to the levels of rules to guide our actions. In t ...

... into a ruthless money hungry business.
Corporations use marketing techniques to trick young people into buying their products by modeling their products around famous sporting stars even though the product has nothing to do with the sporting star and using false statements e.g. McDonlands released a burger called the MJ burger and used the slogan 'I wanna be like Mike'. Their marketing techniques can best be described as 'blind bullying' where they lure you in and take all your money.

... and temporary workers are
a safety valve for Japanese companies that allow them to reduce costs in the
short-term without firing permanent male workers. The second way Japanese
companies reduce costs is by giving early retirement to senior workers at the
company. Many of these workers forced into early retirement then take up farming
as is the custom in Japan for retires. Getting rid of senior workers is one the
