Industriepolitik

Die technologischen Entscheidungen in der Industriepolitik sind von großer Tragweite. Die Wege der modernen Industriegesellschaften sind gepflastert mit weitreichenden Fehlentscheidungen. Fehlentscheidungen aus gesellschaftlicher Sicht reihen sich an Verluste für den blauen Planeten. Einzelinteressen sind in diesen technologischen Entscheidungsprozessen zu oft zum Vorteil von Monopolen oder Oligopolen in der Vergangenheit ausgegangen.

Elektroautos gab es lange schon Quelle Spiegel Oktober 2020

Vor 100 und vor 30 Jahren gab es elektrische Prototypen für Individuellen Straßenverkehr. Gegen große Konzerne haben Nischenprodukte wenig Marktchancen sich zu etablieren. Überraschender Weise war das bereits bei der Entwicklung des Internets schon vergleichbar. In den „Comedies françaises“ ist ein anderes französisches Beispiel plastisch beschrieben worden. Solange wir Studierenden nur die Monopolrendite erklären, brauchen wir uns nicht zu wundern. Aufpassen „Winner takes all and forever“ ist dem kommunistischen Wirtschaften vergleichbar. In zu vielen Fällen erweisen sich die Monopolkommissionen als die BaFin im Wirecardskandal. … und dann singen wieder alle: Skandal um Rosi…

We don’t need no education?

The OECD has published new results from the PISA round of data collection from 2018 in December 2019. Some results seem to be more trustworthy than others, particularly when different motivations of pupils are taken into account to participate at their best in such surveys. On the 3rd of December in Brussels a school had just a visit by police, apparently called in by the headmaster, to restore order. The newspaper “Le Soir” published on the 4th December an account of what happened in that nice-looking school from the outside near the famous DUDEN-Park in Forèt, Bruxelles.

On the 4th December, also in Brussels, there was the final conference of the “friends-project“. This EU-cofinanced project tries to build more links of institutions that apply Montessori learning in schools. Maybe it would be a good idea to get the two places in touch with eachother somehow. On the partnership page of the Erasmus+-project there is a Belgian partner. Okay, transcendental meditation is not for everybody, but calming spirits and frustrations to avoid school drop-out and stigmatisation of youth as violent is obviously the worst case scenario.

 

Splendid Public Libraries to replace Cathedrals

Renovated public libraries are modern showcases of architecture and access to knowledge. Recently the best places add the platform function of people meeting people there not only taking out and bringing back books. The Stockholm city library is an impressive example of all functions.
The library figures also in the list of the 25 best public libraries in the world shown by flavorwire:  http://flavorwire.com/280318/the-25-most-beautiful-public-libraries-in-the-world  You can actually walk up the stairs and access books directly. In the annex building is the international collection with its multilingual treasure as well as the press and journal sections. Impressive is the wide spread audience rather than intellectuals only.
The place is a top place for adult education and lifelong and lifewide learning.
