By Collectif,Fenneke Reysoo,Christine Verschuur

Le discours sur le sous-développement s’est remodelé en discours sur l. a. pauvreté dans les agences de développement. On avance l’estimation que 70 % des pauvres dans le monde sont des femmes... Cet ouvrage, qui constitue un ensemble avec celui qui le précède, interroge le pouvoir structurant de l’économie selon une viewpoint de style pour comprendre los angeles nature et les modifications des rapports entre hommes te femmes. Il se penche particulièrement sur l’accélération du mouvement de mondialisation qui va de pair avec l’accroissement de los angeles pauvreté/prospérité et qui accentue l’inégalité des relatives de style et los angeles subordination des femmes. Ce que nous essayons de montrer, à travers les divers textes ici présentés, est combien l. a. concept de style est quintessential pour comprendre remark est structurée cette réalité. vehicle le rôle des femmes dans l’économie, que nous avons mis en lumière dans le numéro 2 de notre assortment, prend une position croissante avec l. a. libéralisation économique. Et le travail de copy s’appuie de manière plus lourde sur les femmes motor vehicle le néolibéralisme have a tendency à retirer toute intervention publique dans ces secteurs et los angeles department sexuelle du travail dans les ménages est rarement remise en query. los angeles mondialisation est un processus chargé de contradictions, qui peut aussi ouvrir des opportunités. L’accès accru aux revenus, même faibles, a parfois une effect sur les rapports de pouvoir entre hommes et femmes au sein des ménages. Les ouvertures à l’extérieur sont une voie d’accès au pouvoir (empowerment), elles permettent aux femmes de s’organiser, de comprendre, de remettre en query. Imperceptiblement parfois, de manière plus manifeste ailleurs, des modifications des identités de style sont induites par los angeles mondialisation. Des organizations plus larges se mettent en position, des recherches d’alternatives immédiates se conjuguent avec l’internationalisation des mouvements de femmes. Des alterations des rapports de style impliquent de profonds changements. Cependant, il ne d’agit pas seulement de chercher à promouvoir un développement aux rapports de style plus équitables, mais de promouvoir des identités de style, des rapports sociaux entre hommes et femmes plus justes, qui favoriseraient un développement économique, social, politique et culturel différent.

Michael A. Louis's Completing Globalization: Globalisierung zuende gedacht PDF

By Michael A. Louis

Essay aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Globalisierung, pol. Ökonomie, Freie Universität Berlin (Otto-Suhr-Institut; Prof. Elmar Altvater), Veranstaltung: Internationale politische Ökonomie, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Durch die Möglichkeit, Sonnenenergie in geldwerten elektrischen Strom zu verwandeln, der in die nationalen, interkontinentalen bzw. globalen Wirtschaftkreisläufe eingespeist werden kann, bedeutet dies, dass bei einer stetigen Zunahme der weltweiten Nutzung von Solarenergie als Reaktion auf die stetige Abnahme der Verfügbarkeit fossiler Energiereserven und unter der Vorraussetzung der erfolgten Errichtung eines weltweit integrierten Solarenergieversorgungsnetzes die jeweilig zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt t auf der Erdoberfläche auftreffende und in Elektrizität verwandelte Solarenergiemenge als Wertanker für eine aus dem SDR (Special Drawing Rights = Sonderziehungsrechte des IWF) zu entwickelnde Weltwährung (bzw. zunächst eine gemeinsame Währung der weiter oben postulierten Interregionalen Union (IU)) eingesetzt werden kann. Diese Währung könnte ‚CAP’ als Abkürzung für ‚Kapitaleinheit’ genannt werden und die Basiseinheit 1 CAP (= 1 SDR) haben.
Die Nutzung von Solarenergie als Wertanker für eine Interregionale Währung würde im Prinzip – das Bestehen einer umfassenden und dynamisch expandierenden Ein-speisungsinfrastruktur vorrausgesetzt – die sukzessive Erweiterung der innerhalb des Interregionalen Verbundes zirkulierenden Geldmenge in Proportionalität zu der Zunahme der tatsächlich in den Interregionalen Wirtschaftskreislauf eingespeisten Energiemenge rechtfertigen. Nach Einschätzung des Verfassers dürfte die solcherart zu erzielende Ausweitung der Geldmenge bezogen auf die Jurisdiktion bzw. den Ausdehnungsbereich der weiter oben postulierten Interregionalen Union (IU) bis etwa zum Jahre 2050 etwa in dem Größenordnungsbereich zwischen dem Faktor 1.000 und 10.000 angesiedelt sein.
Es ist diese Ausdehnung der IU-Zentralbankgeldmenge, die berechtigten Anlass zu dem Optimismus gibt, dass die innerhalb der IU unbedingt erforderlichen Kohäsions- und Strukturanpassungsprozesse auch konkret und mit adäquater Wertdeckung finanziert werden können. Der relative Standortvorteil vieler Entwicklungsländer bezogen auf die Einstrahlungsdichte von Solarenergie professional Quadratmeter wird hierbei bei erfolgter Ein-speisung von Solarstrom in IU-weite Energieverbundnetze zur Zahlung von Einspeisungsvergütungen an die entsprechenden Länder führen, die mittelfristig die Zahlung von Entwicklungshilfe an dieselben überflüssig machen und zur konkreten Grundlage für den Aufbau von Infrastruktur, funktionierenden Marktwirtschaften und umfassenden sozialen Sicherungssystemen werden wird.
