  • 25. Democratic Justice: Applications

    Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Professor Shapiro guides the class through some practical applications of his theory of democratic justice. As applied to governing children, a sphere in which power-based hierarchy is inevitable, he circumscribes the role of the state as the fiduciary over children's basic interests and the role of parents as the fiduciaries over children's best interests. In other words, the state ensures the provision of the resources necessary for survival while the parents provide the resources to enable children to thrive as well as possible. Although some tensions will develop, such dual hierarchies enable a system of checks on these power relationships. And these hierarchies are self-liquidating once the child reaches adulthood, and because of self-determ...

--ESPAÑOL-- El Imperio italiano (italiano: Impero Italiano) comprendía las colonias, protectorados, concesiones, dependencias y territorios fiduciarios del Reino de Italia y, después de 1946, la República Italiana. La génesis del imperio colonial colonial fue la compra, en 1869, por una empresa comercial de la ciudad costera de Assab en el Mar Rojo. Esto fue asumido por el gobierno italiano en 1882, convirtiéndose en el primer territorio de ultramar de Italia. Durante las próximas dos décadas, el ritmo de las adquisiciones europeas en África aumentó, causando la llamada "lucha por África". Al comienzo de la Primera Guerra Mundial en 1914, Italia había adquirido solo en África una colonia en la costa del Mar Rojo (Eritrea), un gran protectorado en Somalia y autoridad administrativa en la antigua Libia turca. Fuera de África, Italia poseía una pequeña concesión en Tientsin en China y las islas del Dodecaneso frente a las costas de Turquía. El Imperio italiano fue proclamado en 1936 por Benito Mussolini, después de la invasión fascista de Abisinia. El Imperio comprendía las colonias de Libia, Etiopía, Italia, Somalilandia, Eritrea, Dodecaneso (Grecia), Albania, la costa de los Balcanes y la concesión de Tianjin. Por esta razón, se decidió escribir esta letra en la "Marcia Reale Italiana" y cambiar la forma de cantar y algunas notas musicales. El Imperio italiano se disolvió formalmente en 1946, y el himno se volvió obsoleto. --INGLES-- The Italian Empire (Italian: Italian Empire) comprised the colonies, protectorates, concessions, dependencies and fiduciary territories of the Kingdom of Italy and, after 1946, the Italian Republic. The genesis of the colonial colonial empire was the purchase, in 1869, by a commercial company from the coastal city of Assab on the Red Sea. This was taken over by the Italian government in 1882, becoming the first overseas territory of Italy. During the next two decades, the pace of European acquisitions in Africa increased, causing the so-called "fight for Africa". At the beginning of the First World War in 1914, Italy had only acquired in Africa a colony on the coast of the Red Sea (Eritrea), a great protectorate in Somalia and administrative authority in the former Turkish Libya. Outside of Africa, Italy had a small concession in Tientsin in China and the Dodecanese islands off the coast of Turkey. The Italian Empire was proclaimed in 1936 by Benito Mussolini, after the fascist invasion of Abyssinia. The Empire included the colonies of Libya, Ethiopia, Italy, Somaliland, Eritrea, Dodecanese (Greece), Albania, the Balkan coast and the Tianjin concession. For this reason, it was decided to write this letter in the "Marcia Reale Italiana" and change the way of singing and some musical notes. The Italian Empire formally disbanded in 1946, and the anthem became obsolete. ================================================ -LRYCS- Viva il Re! Viva il Re! Nella luce, nella luce di Roma.

What is DEFINED CONTRIBUTION PLAN? What does DEFINED CONTRIBUTION PLAN mean? DEFINED CONTRIBUTION PLAN meaning - DEFINED CONTRIBUTION PLAN definition - DEFINED CONTRIBUTION PLAN explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A defined contribution (DC) plan is a type of retirement plan in which the employer, employee or both make contributions on a regular basis. Individual accounts are set up for participants and benefits are based on the amounts credited to these accounts (through employee contributions and, if applicable, employer contributions) plus any investment earnings on the money in the account. In defined contribution plans, future benefits fluctuate on the basis of investment earnings. The most common type of defined contribution plan is a savings and thrift plan. Under this type of plan, the employee contributes a predetermined portion of his or her earnings (usually pretax) to an individual account, all or part of which is matched by the employer. In the United States, 26 U.S.C. § 414(i) specifies a defined contribution plan as a "plan which provides for an individual account for each participant and for benefits based solely on the amount contributed to the participant's account, and any income, expenses, gains and losses, and any forfeitures of accounts of other participants which may be allocated to such participant's account." While Defined Contribution plans are sometimes referred to as pensions, they are not. The word "pension" is defined as "a fixed amount, other than wages, paid at regular intervals to a person or to the person's surviving dependents in consideration of past services". In contrast, a Defined Contribution retirement plan is an arrangement where an employer, during the time a person is employed, puts money in a registered retirement account on the employee's behalf. In general, a DC plan provides much less security for the employee, and much less obligation for the employer, than a pension. In a defined contribution plan, fixed contributions are paid into an individual account by employers and employees. The contributions are then invested, for example in the stock market, and the returns on the investment (which may be positive or negative) are credited to the individual's account. On retirement, the member's account is used to provide retirement benefits, sometimes through the purchase of an annuity which then provides a regular income. Defined contribution plans have become widespread all over the world in recent years and are now the dominant form of plan in the private sector in many countries. For example, the number of defined contribution plans in the US has been steadily increasing, as more and more employers see pension contributions as a large expense avoidable by disbanding the defined benefit plan and instead offering a defined contribution plan. Money contributed can either be from employee salary deferral or from employer contributions. The portability of defined contribution plans is legally no different from the portability of defined benefit plans. However, because of the cost of administration and ease of determining the plan sponsor's liability for defined contribution plans (no actuary is needed to calculate the lump sum equivalent unlike for defined benefit plans), in practice, defined contribution plans have become generally portable. In a defined contribution plan, investment risk and investment rewards are assumed by each individual/employee/retiree and not by the sponsor/employer. This risk could be substantial. Based on simulations from security returns over the twentieth century across 16 countries, there is considerable variation in retirement plan fund ratios across both time and country. Those countries keenest on individual DC accounts have the highest retirement plan fund ratios but all investors in all countries face considerable downside risk. Some countries such as France, Italy and Spain face a ten percent probability of having a real replacement ratio of 0.25, 0.20 and 0.17 respectively. In addition, DC scheme participants do not necessarily purchase annuities with their savings upon retirement and bear the risk of outliving their assets. The "cost" of a defined contribution plan is readily calculated, but the benefit from a defined contribution plan depends upon the account balance at the time an employee is looking to use the assets. So, for this arrangement, the contribution is known but the benefit is unknown (until calculated). Despite the fact that the participant in a defined contribution plan typically has control over investment decisions, the plan sponsor retains a significant degree of fiduciary responsibility over investment of plan assets, including the selection of investment options and administrative providers.

In a newly published article Marco Ventoruzzo suggests that list voting could be the best way to guarantee minority representation in American boards of directors. Register to Bocconi Newsletter http://www.unibocconi.eu/newsletter Corporate America could take a leaf from the Italian company law book, according to Marco Ventoruzzo (Department of Law). In Empowering Shareholders in Directors' Elections: A Revolution in the Making (European Company and Financial Law Review, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2011, Pages 105-144, doi: 10.1515/ecfr.2011.105) he states that list voting could be the best way to give shareholders some say in new directors' elections, currently managed and decided by the directors sitting in the board. While reforms recently implemented or currently under consideration both at state and federal level are steps in the right direction, they are too timid, Ventoruzzo argues, and list voting is superior to the traditionally recommended cumulative voting in terms of simplicity, predictability and certainty. "The extensive powers that directors enjoy as fiduciaries of the shareholders can only be justified, from an economic and legal point of view, to the extent that shareholders, acting as principals, retain control on the selection and removal of their agents", Ventoruzzo writes. But in the US such control is virtually nonexistent: "plurality vote, limitations to proxy access, the cost of an independent proxy solicitation, and brokers' discretionary vote in uncontested elections have traditionally made it very difficult, for shareholders, to have a strong and independent voice in the appointment of directors". In the last years South Dakota, Delaware and the SEC have proposed reforms aimed at shareholders empowerment in the election of the board and greater accountability of directors to the stockholders. The South Dakota reform, though, even if pervasive, is destined not to change American corporate life because no major company is incorporated there and no one chose to do so after the reform. Delaware (the champion of incorporation in the US) and SEC reforms are too bland, allowing ways out or requesting the companies to opt in. Directors are currently elected one by one, usually following the plurality rule and chosen from the list contained in the proxy statement. Often the sitting directors put all the names in the list and the election in uncontested because the number of the candidates matches the number of the vacant seats. The ability of shareholders to propose nominees to the board is so severely constrained, Ventoruzzo writes, that "in case of disagreement with the way in which the corporation is managed, stockholders can more easily sell their shares and vote with their feet". With the list voting system proposed by Ventoruzzo, shareholders wouldn't vote for the new directors one by one, but for competing lists, with the prevision that the second most voted list would have a certain number of representatives in the board. Past literature, to overcome the representation problem, has proposed the cumulative voting system, according to which each shareholder is entitled to cast a pool of votes corresponding to the product of his shares, times the number of directors up for election. Ventoruzzo's simulations show that both the systems lead to a minority representation, but the outcome of the election with cumulative voting is not very predictable and the system is open to strategic voting, while "list voting ensures a meaningful but predetermined level of representation of minority shareholders on the board, and it encourages the creation of shareholders' coalitions that share the same interests". In order to prevent possible objections, Ventoruzzo explains in conclusion that the system is working well in Italy and Spain and that its viability doesn't depend on the structure of corporate ownership.

http://www.eliteinvestorclub.com/apply/ Like it or not, the world really has shrunk in the last fifty years. The internet and cheap air travel have made us all global citizens. I’ve visited more countries this year than my father did in his lifetime. Me, a kid from Whitley Bay, running a business that has clients in fifteen countries across five continents. How would I explain that to my grandmothers who never left North East England? Regional governments can’t cope with the new business model. Companies move profits around to minimise their tax bill. Clever businesses focused on a niche can find new clients across the globe more easily than across the street. And we consumers buy stuff not just because a shop is local but because we buy into their values, their purpose, their philosophy. I’m far from alone in living a two-centre lifestyle in Britain and France. Impossible without internet technology and cheap air travel. I face the future with confidence as a self-sufficient entrepreneur with a glass half full attitude. But that doesn’t make me blind to reality. Most governments of major western democracies are broke. In the financial sense and in the way they are trying to function. No politician, other than perhaps Ron Paul in America, has been brave enough to tell the electorate how truly terrible things are. It has nothing to do with Brexit, just in case you’re bonkers enough to believe what you read in the media. These are structural issues that have been unfolding for decades. Ask me to name the point at which the post war boom unravelled and I’d probably point to Richard Nixon’s nineteen seventy-one decision to disconnect the dollar from gold. Since every other major currency was linked to the dollar that let politicians and central bankers the world over off the fiduciary hook. What economists call sound money was cast aside in the interests of short term expediency. The money printing genie was out of the bottle. And an empire of wealth and productivity started morphing into an empire of debt and dependency. In another episode in this series I’ll talk about the full financial implications of this fatal decision. Never mind Watergate, I’d have had Nixon impeached for this crime against humanity for which we’ve yet to see the scary end game. For now I want to focus on the political change that’s in the air. The Brexit vote certainly caught the political elite napping in the UK and Europe. It’s empowered parties in at least eight other EU countries to discuss the possibility of their own exit. EU leaders are giving Britain serious verbal abuse as they try to talk up all the challenges we are facing – they are scared of what the French call La Contagion, ie other countries leaving the moribund union. So we’ve got a trend towards dis-integration at a political level, almost with a tribal zeitgeist. You sense that if the Remainers could live in a separate part of Britain and stay in the EU they’d be happy to move there. Ditto Scotland calling for another independence referendum. Will we see a move back to the model of Italy in the nineteenth century with a series of City States? I quite like the Swiss model of Cantons where everything is decided locally unless it absolutely must go to a national level, for example issues around defence and national security. I think we’ll also see increasing tensions between young and old. If we’re honest, we’ve really screwed the next generation. They are loaded down with debt, they can’t afford to buy a house and they’re going to pay a fortune in tax to cover our pensions and medical bills. How long before they banish us all to Oldistan and reclaim the country for those under thirty five? What does it all mean for investors? It’s too early to tell. All I can say with certainty is that you need to be tuned in to what’s happening at a macro level and have some flexibility designed into your long term financial plan. Read Harry Dent’s work on the countries and currencies likely to be ‘the best in a bad neighbourhood’. In other words, the least-worst options in a world where growth is hard to find and those with wealth and assets are taxed within an inch of their lives to fund the dependents and the entitled cronies of the political elite. Here at Elite Investor Club we’ll do our best to interpret what’s happening in time for you to take action. If you haven’t already joined us, this might be a good time to head over to eliteinvestorclub.com/apply and do so now. Thanks for watching

--ESPAÑOL-- El Imperio italiano (italiano: Impero Italiano) comprendía las colonias, protectorados, concesiones, dependencias y territorios fiduciarios del Reino de Italia y, después de 1946, la República Italiana. La génesis del imperio colonial colonial fue la compra, en 1869, por una empresa comercial de la ciudad costera de Assab en el Mar Rojo. Esto fue asumido por el gobierno italiano en 1882, convirtiéndose en el primer territorio de ultramar de Italia. Durante las próximas dos décadas, el ritmo de las adquisiciones europeas en África aumentó, causando la llamada "lucha por África". Al comienzo de la Primera Guerra Mundial en 1914, Italia había adquirido solo en África una colonia en la costa del Mar Rojo (Eritrea), un gran protectorado en Somalia y autoridad administrativa en la antigua Libia turca. Fuera de África, Italia poseía una pequeña concesión en Tientsin en China y las islas del Dodecaneso frente a las costas de Turquía. El Imperio italiano fue proclamado en 1936 por Benito Mussolini, después de la invasión fascista de Abisinia. El Imperio comprendía las colonias de Libia, Etiopía, Italia, Somalilandia, Eritrea, Dodecaneso (Grecia), Albania, la costa de los Balcanes y la concesión de Tianjin. Por esta razón, se decidió escribir esta letra en la "Marcia Reale Italiana" y cambiar la forma de cantar y algunas notas musicales. El Imperio italiano se disolvió formalmente en 1946, y el himno se volvió obsoleto. --INGLES-- The Italian Empire (Italian: Italian Empire) comprised the colonies, protectorates, concessions, dependencies and fiduciary territories of the Kingdom of Italy and, after 1946, the Italian Republic. The genesis of the colonial colonial empire was the purchase, in 1869, by a commercial company from the coastal city of Assab on the Red Sea. This was taken over by the Italian government in 1882, becoming the first overseas territory of Italy. During the next two decades, the pace of European acquisitions in Africa increased, causing the so-called "fight for Africa". At the beginning of the First World War in 1914, Italy had only acquired in Africa a colony on the coast of the Red Sea (Eritrea), a great protectorate in Somalia and administrative authority in the former Turkish Libya. Outside of Africa, Italy had a small concession in Tientsin in China and the Dodecanese islands off the coast of Turkey. The Italian Empire was proclaimed in 1936 by Benito Mussolini, after the fascist invasion of Abyssinia. The Empire included the colonies of Libya, Ethiopia, Italy, Somaliland, Eritrea, Dodecanese (Greece), Albania, the Balkan coast and the Tianjin concession. For this reason, it was decided to write this letter in the "Marcia Reale Italiana" and change the way of singing and some musical notes. The Italian Empire formally disbanded in 1946, and the anthem became obsolete.

Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Professor Shapiro guides the class through some practical applications of his theory of democratic justice. As applied to governing children, a sphere in which power-based hierarchy is inevitable, he circumscribes the role of the state as the fiduciary over children's basic interests and the role of parents as the fiduciaries over children's best interests. In other words, the state ensures the provision of the resources necessary for survival while the parents provide the resources to enable children to thrive as well as possible. Although some tensions will develop, such dual hierarchies enable a system of checks on these power relationships. And these hierarchies are self-liquidating once the child reaches adulthood, and because of self-determination, the child can no longer be disenfranchised. Professor Shapiro also examines hierarchy in the workplace. If exit costs are high, what he calls a Dickensian nightmare, then increased regulation is justified, but if we are living in a surfer's paradise, with low exit costs and a high social wage, then the firm's pursuit of efficiency should not be impeded. How regulation is applied depends on where the society falls on this continuum. In closing, Professor Shapiro offers his remarks about the staying power and legacy of democracy. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
