Εθνικές Μνήμες


Μνήμες 1821, μνήμες 1995-59, μνήμες που υποχρεώνουν, που σταυρώνουν τη συνείδηση κάθε Έλληνα, που σκέφτεται και τιμά τους προ-υπάρξαντες συνέλληνες, που κοίταξαν κατάματα τον φόβο, και είπαν "όχι". Τούτη η περιφρόνηση του πιο μαρτυρικού από τα συναισθήματα, του φόβου, είναι που έδωσε ταυτότητα στον Έλληνα, στο πέρασμα της ιστορίας του χιλιάδων χρόνων. Και γίνεται, τότε, φοβερός ο Έλληνας: γίνεται πολεμιστής. Και η μοίρα του αμείλικτη, για τον ίδιο που σηκώνει το ανάστημα, και λέει «όχι», και για κείνους που το εισπράττουν ως απάντηση, οι επίβουλοι και άδικοι. Γιατί τέτοιους εχθρούς έχει ο Έλληνας: επίβουλους και άδικους. Κι αν είναι να [...]

How to use Nudge Theory for Business Success


An article written by Dr Olga Kandinskaia As someone with a keen interest in the business management science, I always keep an eye on the latest decision-making theories. Simply speaking, making a decision is rarely easy. Or at least if we are talking of a good decision. To make a good decision, we need to be able to collect, interpret and analyse a load of information, and at the same time not to lose track of our goals. Management education is dedicated to this purpose of improving real life management decisions, applying the principles of management science to the current business [...]

Investment Opportunities for the Retail Investor


Διαβάστε εδώ την Ελληνική έκδοση > Investment Opportunities for the Retail Investor By Dr. George Theocharides As most of us are aware, a major trend that appeared in global markets in recent times is the establishment of a low or even negative interest rate environment. The reasons of course behind this uncomfortable trend have to do with insufficient rates of growth for the global economy as well as low inflation levels. This situation is here to stay for some time (unless inflation picks up rather drastically) and has important implications. One of them is the low (or even negative) return [...]
