From Weblogs to Twitter: How Did We Get Where We Are Today and What Are the Main Impacts To Date?

Just as significant was the fragmentation of industrial production whereby parts of the manufacturing process could be relocated over vast distances. Sewing in garment and footwear production, for instance, was among the

5.1 Reading an Act of Parliament

In Parts A and B of this course we have examined what influences determine which Acts of Parliament are made and the process by which they are made. In Part D I would like to show you some examples of what an Act of Parliament looks like, how Acts of Parliament are structured and how you should read an Act of Parliament.

Persistence in Economic and Political Institutions

Many societies, however, experience frequent changes in their political institutions. Certain economic institutions also change. In the face of this picture of frequently changing institutions, do such institutions really persist? Professor James Robinson, Harvard University, discusses the nature of institutional persistence and e

However, this can raise questions about the ethics of their behaviour.
