There are Reasons for the New Scepticism on Free Trade and Globalization

2020-08-31T13:08:02+00:00

One of the oldest and most widely held economic theories is that international trade is a win-win situation. Through the benefits of international specialization, all parties to agreements which extend free trade can “win”.  This is the theoretical basis for free trade and globalization. It has become so widely accepted that it’s support has become almost a test of political correctness within the economic profession. Even so, past experience indicates that there are (should be) no sacred cows in economics.  Questions have recently been raised, particularly regarding the distribution of benefits from trade. It is clear that not all groups within [...]

Initial Coin Offering (ICO): Advices to Minimise FailureDr Theodosis Mourouzis

2020-08-31T13:12:40+00:00

Initial Coin Offering, or commonly known as ICO, is a form of crowdfunding or fund-raising activity based either on established cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) or fiat currencies. Startups that are incorporating coins into their product’s design, are using ICO as a method for capital raising since it is easier and more efficient, bypassing in this way the rigorous, time-consuming and regulated processes required by venture capitalists and banks. An advantage of this method is that it allows a team to focus more on their product rather than marketing and pitching to investors, which usually takes a high percentage of time. ICO campaigns extend [...]
