Time-as-Money Mindset Decreases Green Behaviors

Pacific Standard:

How can people be convinced to think about the environmental consequences of their behaviors? New research suggests one surprising piece of the answer may be: Pay them a salary, rather than an hourly wage.

 

In five studies, described in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, they consistently found that “thinking about the economic value of time decreases environmental behavior.”

Wind energy is saving taxpayers money in Minnesota – The …

Nearly every time the wind blows in Mower County, Minnesota property taxes drop.

Most of that tax goes to the county, which uses it to offset property taxes. By law, the turbines themselves aren’t taxed, just the electricity they produce, County Coordinator Craig Oscarson said.

The Global Financial and Economic Crisis, and the Creation of the Financial Stability Board

The 2007-2008 global financial and economic crisis precipitated a significant shift in the financial regulatory worldview (or paradigm) of political and central bank leaders from leading advanced and emerging states. With a common consensus on the required financial reforms, these actors moved swiftly to create a new organization. The Financial Stability Board (FSB) now stands at the centre of the global regulatory architecture, but it remains obscure, opaque, and closed to most external observers. The FSB needs to change as it matures to reflect its key role in global financial reform efforts.

 

What Were the Causes of the Great Recession?

Two ways of thinking about the causation of the Great Recession are contrasted: the ‘mainstream approach’ and the ‘monetary interpretation’. According to the mainstream approach, the Great Recession was due to the potential insolvency of the banking system and the correct antidote was tighter regulation. The paper proposes an alternative ‘monetary interpretation’, arguing that the macroeconomic trajectory of the major G7 economies in the Great Recession is readily understood by means of the monetary theory of the determination of national income. The main cause of the Great Recession is seen as a collapse in the annual growth rate of broad money from double-digit annual rates in the years before mid-2008 to virtually zero in the following three years. Further, the dominant reason for the money growth collapse was the abrupt and comprehensive tightening of bank regulation in late 2008. In particular, the raising of regulatory capital/asset ratios was a shock that intensified the downturn.

The Link Between Money and Nominal Spending

The recent financial crisis has reignited interest in the role of money and credit in driving economic activity. This article takes a broad overview of the historical data available for assessing the link between money, credit and activity, using the quantity theory of money as an organising framework. The article shows that when trying to apply this theory to historical data, a complicated interaction between money and nominal spending emerges. And a deeper understanding of the forces driving money demand and supply is required to interpret the information contained in money about the level of activity and inflation.

When Money Matters

The severe financial crisis that grips Spain has multiple causes. One has been the massive and continued expansion of the money supply since Spain’s accession to the Eurozone, and the non-negligible effects of this expansion on asset prices as well as on the structure of the economy. We analyse the main hypotheses underlying the mainstream macroeconomic models used in recent years to explain inflation and its relation to money. We then apply an ‘unobserved component model’ to test for the cyclical relation between money growth, inflation, asset (stock and real estate) prices and real GDP in Spain from 1998 to 2013. Based on the Spanish experience, our main finding is that, even though the money supply has become endogenous within the monetary strategy developed by the US Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank in recent times, the broad money supply and asset prices have shared the same cyclical component in the latest business cycle (1998–2013).

Money is Energy, and Empathy is the Currency for Changing

It comes down to real and direct interactions with other human beings. People are not corporate entities, they have feelings. They need to connect. The connection brings openness, availability and understanding. “For me,” says Jerry, “a breakthrough thought is that money is just a form of energy. Empathy is just a form of energy.” And furthermore, he says, “we can have this dialogue about how if everything we do is a means of reinforcement for our interdependence and interconnectedness as beings, then hot damn! We don’t have to be so alone!”

Journal of Business Ethics – ResearchGate

We develop an intricate theory with provocative implications: Procedural justice produces obedience. For “individualists”, interactional justice inspires loyalty and, interestingly, distributive justice “can only buy” participation, but “can’t buy” loyalty. Therefore, for individualists, interactional justice outweighs distributive justice for organizational loyalty. Based on Kyrgyz citizens’ justice, OCB, and individualism, our theory reveals novel insights regarding culture, money attitude, and intrinsic motivation and provides critical and practical implications to the field of business ethics.

Does a money-is-all attitude cause alienation? A cross-cultural comparison of Korea, the US and Sweden

  • Money-is-all attitude;
  • alienation;
  • cross-cultural comparison;
  • Korea;
  • US;
  • Sweden

Money is increasingly being attributed more value in society, although a money-is-all attitude decreases social relationships and increases alienation in modern, industrialized societies. This research investigated the influence of this money-is-all attitude on alienation based on a cross-cultural comparison of Korea, the US and Sweden. The money-is-all attitude was defined as a perspective in which money is regarded as an indicator of achievement or success.

Self-administered online surveys were conducted with consumers ranging between the ages of 20 to 49 in Korea, the US and Sweden. The money-is-all attitude and alienation seemed to be more pervasive in Korea than in the US or Sweden. The money-is-all attitude was the factor with the strongest influence on alienation when controlling for socio-demographic factors. Furthermore, participation in sports activities was an important factor in decreasing alienation levels. The findings of this research imply that materialistic ways of thinking increase alienation and that money cannot contribute to human happiness and well-being. In addition, active participation in social activities can decrease alienation.

The research results suggest that a materialistic, money-is-all attitude negatively influences alienation across cultures; in addition, in the US, an affluent consumption-based country, the money-is-all attitude had more explanatory power for alienation than in Sweden and Korea. A change in values to overcome the money-is-all attitude is required and the concepts of sufficiency and mindfulness are suggested as alternative life perspectives for the pursuit of well-being.

My Grammar Background

My first experience with grammar was when I was home schooled in fourth grade. My mom was my teacher and she has always been one who finds great importance in grammar. I grew up with her always correcting anything I spoke that was not grammatically correct and so in fourth grade when I really stated learning that stuff in detail through writing, it became clear what the major do’s and don’ts were. I chose to rant about the words: “their”, “there”, and “they’re”, because when I first learned them my mom made me write out a list of examples of each ones and why each word was important to each sentence in context. It was repetitive and annoying but I realize now how important it is to know and that many people my age still make these common mistakes. I am thankful now for all these repetitive exercises.

Closing Reflection: Literacy is contextual, and context is interpretation.

My Interpretation of Writing

When it comes to being literate, most people in our culture are. For years now our government has required children to attend school up to at least an eighth grade level. I think this is a great thing because in today’s society it would be impossible to function normally and obtain a career if someone were illiterate. Being able to simply read and write is so important to our society today. To me, being literate more so means to have a good interpretation of reading and writing. I believe you shouldn’t just be able to read and write but you should be able to read and interpret well and write in a way that clearly communicates and portrays an intended message. Good writing is so important in today’s society.

How does one describe good writing? There are many different forms of writing and every writer has their own individual style of writing. What I interpret as good writing is writing that can not only spark my interest, and hold my attention, but that can make me understand why and what the person is writing about. Along with this, good writing should paint a picture in the reader’s head of what they are reading on the page. One thing that I have always found in good writing is personalization. As a reader I don’t just want words on a page telling me about something, I want to be able to make some relation between the writing and the writer. One annoying thing that I have never found in good quality writing but that I notice in really bad writing is unnecessary repetition. I hate reading something once and then reading that exact same general idea explained in a different way a few lines later, it’s just fluff.

One element of good writing is good grammar. I myself am a bit of a grammar freak and hate it when people make common and very obvious grammar mistakes. Its one thing to personalize writing with intentional misuses of words, grammar or spelling, but besides that, people seriously need to review what they learned in their middle school language arts classes. I mean really, with the simple misuse of the words “their”, “there” or “they’re”… whoever is reading that completely loses context of the sentence or the subject of the sentence. If more people improved upon THEIR grammar, the world would be a better place. And learn how to use their turn signals… just saying.

When it comes to being literate and being a good writer, one has to have been taught well. A lot of times I find myself realizing that what I have been taught in high school about writing and what “good” writing actually is, is wrong. After reading “Teaching as Unteaching” it’s safe to say I more than agree with the fact that teachers end up “unteaching” first semester college students, most of what they learned about writing from high school. It is truly unfortunate that we are taught such things about writing in high school because I feel that for most, the reason people see writing as such a chore is because of the common misconception of the “right” way to write. Teachers in high school have a general curriculum and way they are supposed to teach writing based off of the standardized tests and writing exams given by the state. However, the way they teach us to write to prepare us for those tests and exams isn’t the way that writing is taught to prepare you for writing in the real world.

My Leaning of Grammar

When I was first learning about grammar, my mom was the one who taught me because I was homeschooled in 4th and 5th grade. I remember her having a strong focus on the “there”, “their”, and “they’re” when it came to context and writing. I wasn’t very good at grammar when I first started learning it but after the exercises she taught me to remember the social tricks of grammar I was able to catch on pretty quickly. Now, however, I consider myself to be a bit of a grammar freak. I think there is great importance in grammar and context in writing which is illustrated by grammar.
