There is a Need for Economists in the Society Today

The current complex global economy requires the intervention of economists like Christian Broda. He is one of the greatest and highly trained economists of our times. His skills in capital management and economic predictions have helped a number of his client in averting economic tragedies. Currently he is a professor at the university of Chicago teaching economics. He is a celebrated graduate of an Argentine university with a bachelor’s degree in economics.

Common logic demands prudence in every sphere of life. This is the basic rationale of economists and they have proven to be right over the years. Unfortunately, governments and corporate leaders have not been paying attention to the roles and reasoning of economists. This is despite the fact that some freelance economists have been offering a piece of their minds concerning the economy through the media.

Economists are realists and they believe in solving issues more than they believe in getting paid for it. This is why freelance economists are all over the internet blogging about their predictions on the future of the global economy. Television broadcasts have featured a number of economists being interviewed on the global economic status and some of these predictions have turned out positively in the past. The role of an economist is however to present facts backed by research of past economic trends.

More often than not, economists make the right predictions but we realise it when the damage has already done. If people in power and market leaders had listened to economists’ predictions prior to the 2008/2009 economic crisis, the meltdown would not have happened at all. However, with the understanding of how much the economists can help in averting economic problems, the relevant authorities are beginning to pay close attention to their predictions.

Economists are currently being consulted by almost every industry in the economy. They are involved in structuring national policies on business operations, health systems, and the education system among other areas of human existence. Their involvement in these industries is projected to curb the possibility of economic mishaps.

Most importantly, economists are very useful in the financial markets and capital management. Their rationale and expertise in allocating resources in the most beneficial hierarchy of need is proving to be very effective in the economy today. Resources are running low and the population is growing rapidly. Without careful allocation of non-renewable natural resources as advised by economists may bring the world to its knees in future.

Staff members in all different departments and levels at Purina are chiming in about how they not only enjoy creating the Beneful brand, but how it is the only choice they would ever give their own dogs.

Haidar Barbouti Opens Doors in Houston

Like any other industry, the real estate market has its fair share of ups and downs. Downturns and bubbles might scare some away, but not Haidar Barbouti, one of Houston’s most accomplished real estate professionals.

Mr. Barbouti hit the ground running in the real estate business over 20 years ago. Incredibly, he has only gained strength since. Prior to making transactions, Mr. Barbouti completed his rigorous and rewarding academic training at Columbia University in New York, NY. By 1990, Barbouti was already among the most respected real estate professionals in the country. He blazed a trail of success from New York City down to Houston, Texas by acquiring large numbers of commercial and corporate offices, complexes, and properties.

In addition to overseeing the purchase of numerous properties, Barbouti is a successful businessman. Upon purchasing the Highland Village Shopping Center in Houston, Texas in 1990, Barbouti appointed himself Director of Leasing. He holds that same position today and oversees the financial aspects of leasing and renting the myriad of companies in that facility. Barbouti also plays a key role in managing daily operations and activities. Mr. Barbouti participates in upgrades and enhancements when necessary, as he knows the importance visitors place on having a clean and attractive shopping district. Simultaneously, Barbouti assumed the role of President at Fairfax Management Inc. in Houston back in 1997. Today, he remains the acting President there, and handles all aspects of owning, operating, and maintaining several multi-million dollar properties in the Houston area.

While many will never have the privilege of meeting Mr. Barbouti themselves, they can see his hard work paying off every day.

In fact, this remarkable retail hub is one of Houston’s most iconic and coveted, destinations for visitors and tourists. Name-brand stores like Anthropologie, Williams Sonoma, Crate & Barrel and more eagerly open their doors for customers every day.

The Bystander Effect: A Psychological Danger to Our Children

There is a well documented psychological phenomenon that causes people to refuse to help people even though immediate help is required, it’s called the bystander effect. However, the bystander effect has only been found in large cities rather than rural communities. This leads researchers to believe this phenomenon is created because people think “someone else will take care of it”. But if everybody is thinking that way, then no help is ever offered.

The bystander effect has been found to be prevalent in large cities for many years, but a recent study has revealed an even more concerning finding. Paul Mathieson can hardly believe it. The bystander effect is now being widely documented in the behavior of children.

Bullying has been a hot topic in recent years and the bystander effect could help to explain why this harmful behavior has been on the rise lately. If children have the habit of thinking “somebody else will help” then the bully is continually allowed to get away with their behavior without any of their peers ever stepping in (

These findings are yet another reason why teaching our children about compassion and the importance of helping those in need is so important. Children must learn at a young age that they have an obligation to help those in need. More importantly, they can’t depend on others to take care of this personal responsibility.

The Antique Wine Company Anticipating More Record Breaking Sales

Founded in 1982 in London by Stephen Williams, the Antique Wine Company started in London and is available in over 70 countries. This fine wine company hosts some of the most splendid fine wine tasting events. It is also well known for it’s elaborate, decadent collection of wines with over 10,000 exotic wines in its cellars. The Antique Wine Company has had the most valuable wine sales in history, and since it is currently undergoing new changes in its leadership sales records may be broken again.

Most Valuable Wines
Of their collection the Antique Wine Company has sold some of the most valuable wines in history. Namely, it has a record breaking sale of a white wine called Chateau d’Yquem that sold for 75,000 pounds ($115,930). The wine was bottled in 1811. The fabulous white wine is on display in a restaurant owned by the buyer and he has plans to drink it someday.

Other sales from the AWC include a series of antique wines that were sold as an entire lot which the purchaser paid approximately $1.5 million.

New Leadership
In August of 2014 Stuart Young was assigned as the Antique Wine Company’s Sales Director. He will lead a team of approximately seven other individuals that will deal with direct sales in Asia and the United States. Stuart had an interesting career before joining the Antique Wine Company. He worked in the United States and in call centers prior to implementing his own training techniques for sales development. Upon meeting with the founder of the Antique Wine Company, Stephen decided to bring his knowledge to the forefront of wine sales by working directly with one of the world’s top wine companies.

Jean-Philippe Guillot has ten years of experience in fine wines and leads the Antique Wine Company’s sales in the Philippines and Asia. He and Stephen Young will work in tandem. With almost half of the company’s wine sales originating in Asia, this powerhouse sales team anticipates results as fine as the wine they sell.

Winning Wines
With previous sales that are record breaking it is hard to imagine how the Antique Wine Company can expand its territory much further. With new leadership in the sales department in crucial areas there may be enormous, potentially ground breaking sales results in the near future of the Antique Wine Company.
