Quel phénomène déroutant que le chamanisme. Religieux certes, mais sans dogme ni clergé ni liturgie, et variant avec chaque chamane. Archaïque, mais en perpétuelle résurgence et adaptable autant que vulnérable aux influences. Une plongée dans la forêt sibérienne permet de mettre au jour son lien avec la chasse, en tant que mode de vie dépendant directement des ressources de la nature : nul n'a accès à ces ressources sans entretenir de relations avec les esprits qui les animent, les êtres surnaturels. Ces relations sont marquées du sceau de l'alliance et de l'échange, chaque mo

The effect of bank capital on lending is a critical determinant of the linkage between financial conditions and real activity, and has received especial attention in the recent financial crisis. The authors use panel-regression techniques to study the lending of large bank holding companies (BHCs) and find small effects of capital on lending. They then consider the effect of capital ratios on lending using a variant of Lown and Morgan's VAR model, and again find modest effects of bank capital ratio changes on lending. The authorsż estimated models are then used to understand recent developmen

Climate change has emerged as an important public policy issue, although the prospects for an internat. agree. on climate policy are unclear. Many people have proposed plans to encourage or require cuts in the U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide, which affect the Earthżs climate. This study examines 4 proposals for reducing those emissions. Each proposal is a variant of a żcap-and-tradeż program, in which policymakers would set a mandatory cap on emissions of carbon dioxide and provide cożs. with econ. incentives to reach that cap at the lowest possible cost. This study evaluates the 4 propos

Illustrates the analytical content of the global slack hypothesis in the context of variant of the New Open-Economy Macro model under the assumptions of both producer currency pricing and local currency. The model predicts that the Phillips curve for domestic CPI inflation will be flatter under most plausible parameterizations, the more important international trade is to the domestic economy. The model also predicts that foreign output gaps will matter for inflation dynamics, along with the domestic output gap. When the Phillips curve includes the terms of trade gap rather than the foreign ou

Since Kant, philosophy has been obsessed with epistemological questions pertaining to the relationship between mind and world and human access to objects. In The Democracy of Objects Bryant proposes that we break with this tradition and once again initiate the project of ontology as first philosophy. Drawing on the object-oriented ontology of Graham Harman, as well as the thought Roy Bhaskar, Gilles Deleuze, Niklas Luhman, Aristotle, Jacques Lacan, Bruno Latour and the developmental systems theorists, Bryant develops a realist ontology that he calls “onticology”. This ontology argu
