More > presents. Through the eyes of young girls, the book delves into three areas in which adolescents are most impacted by poverty. The first part explores the hand they are dealt in life and the endless, unequal opportunities that emerge as a result. Second is the life inside of the classroom and the educational experience for a low-income student and how it differs from that of their higher income peers. Finally, the book looks at the way in which poverty can affect a young adolescent's self-esteem, sense of self and view of the world. But throughout the disparities emerge stories of strength and positive growth. Through the dedication of compassionate adults, we see how enriching, encouraging, inspiring and educating the lives of these young girls can mean a world of difference.< Less
Cultural By Inna Cábelková
eBook (PDF): $8.99
The economic and political outcomes of similar ideas if applied in different countries may substantially differ. In this study we would like to show the importance of cultural values in explaining... More > these differences. We describe the cultural dimensions model originally proposed by Geert Hosftede and mention ways how cultural models are employed in explaining economic and social differences in existing literature. We than continue with the example of prisoner’s dilemma where we show, that Nash equilibria substantially depend on the values of the players and may produce different outcomes in different cultural settings. To support this idea even further we use cultural dimensions of Geert Hofstede to explain the variations of tax revenues, gender based income inequality migration and remittances across countries. We show that cultural values play an important role and therefore should be taken into account in policy making.< Less

More > total state budget. This situation is clearly affecting both the foreign and domestic investment climate, as highlighted recently by the non-governmental organisation Transparency International. There is also a growing discrepancy between the steady rate of economic growth and the sinking average incomes in the country. Here, too, the inequality of access to public services, driven by corruption, is one of the main root causes of the problem. Marginalized segments of the population in particular are excluded from services, which exacerbates the potential for conflict. There is a growing risk that Kenya's current decentralization process, and the associated partial transfer of power and resources to local administrative authorities, will also lead to the decentralization of corruption.< Less

Political corruption is the abuse of their power by the state official for their unlawful private gain. Over 1500 year ago the mighty Roman Empire disintegrated when its rulers became corrupt and selfish.

A corrupt society is characterized by immorality and lack of fear and respect for law. Corruption cannot be divorced from the economics. Inequality of wealth, low wages and salaries are some of the economics cause of corruption. Employees often strike corrupt deals to supplement their meagre income. -SATISHCHANDER YADAV< Less
