2.1 Industrial revolutions and technological change

In this section I shall look at the way that technological innovations in previous eras, such as the invention of electricity in the early 1900s, radically affected the way society organised production and at how these changes spurred general economic growth. In many instances, the changes were so large that they defined an entire period, just as the rise of information technologies has led some to call the current era the ‘information age’.

The way that technological change can fun

The Economist asks: Have we reached the limits of human knowledge?
The pace of scientific advancement can seem relentless, and the ingenuity of scientists inexhaustible. But is there a finite amount of knowledge we can acquire about the universe around us? Mathematician Marcus Du Sautoy joins The Economist to discuss what we can never really know.

2 Perfect and efficient markets

Before we consider whether financial markets are indeed efficient in the sense of offering fair prices, we need to look more closely at the definition of an efficient market. The best starting point for this is the concept, in general economic theory, of a perfectly competitive market (or perfect market for short). In a perfect market, there would be no barriers or even temporary delays to the formation of perfectly fair prices, that is, prices would instantaneously and universally reflect al

Dynamics
This free course is concerned with moving objects, that is, dynamics. Section 1 introduces concepts like position, velocity and acceleration, which describe the way an object moves. Section 2 discusses Newton’s laws of motion, which predict the motion of an object when the forces acting on it are known. Section 3 shows how Newton’s second law of motion can be used to predict the motion of objects. Section 4 concerns modelling some of the forces that occur in nature, which enables more realis

2.2.3 Model 3: African + Roman = African persistence and no evidence of Roman traits dominating (sep

This scenario sees African culture surviving following the Roman conquest, and where Roman culture is visible it does not replace preexisting practice. Here we might imagine a laissez-faire attitude on the part of the Roman state, allowing the conquered people to carry on in their previous ways and the African people not needing to, or wanting to, adopt Roman customs, practices, forms of representation and cultural identity. In this model we might expect to find Roman and African trait

2.4.1 Organisation of brain cells

Some findings that do appear to be more specific to dyslexia are various microscopic anomalies in the actual organisation of brain cells, reported from post-mortem studies (Galaburda et al., 1985). These include collections of slightly ‘misplaced’ cells (called ectopias) and some minor disordering of the regular layering of cells in the cortex. They are often particularly concentrated in left hemisphere regions involved in language processing, although their distribution varies con
