Investigate and determine the truth before passing judgements.
Religious scriptures are not applicable in the current times.
If religion is indeed the panacea for ALL ills, some countries should not be in the third-world category right now. Hence, my contention that religions are misplaced in the current world reality today. Have you ever wondered why Europe and North America are economically strong today? The majority of their population gave up on Christianity a long time ago.
After the Renaissance (the age of new learning), they became better economically. Of course, countries in Europe fought one another. But they learned how to accommodate to one another’s whims and fancies.
Religions have never bestowed peace unto their adherents.
“People management” simply means managing oneself and others better. It becomes an exercise in absurdity when some people try to BOSS others around.
It is the “couldn’t-be-bothered” attitude that destroys the competitive spirit. In Malaysia, it is very common. People don’t want to go the extra mile to do a good job. Forget about perfection. Everything is done in a half-baked manner. With the “couldn’t-be-bothered” attitude, complacency rules.
A strong European Union (EU) led by the Franco-German axis can spell economic trouble for the lone Britain and its erstwhile muse, America. The Americans may start flexing their muscles through their military might to make the EU toe the line. As a result, trade among nations will be decided by countries in an economic bloc. Is this the beginning of a New World Order?
The “dismal science” has indeed progressed very much since its inception. Human nature will determine how the science or arts of economics advances in the future. After all, the only laboratory available for economists to test the relevance of their theories is the practical world that people live in.
A stable political environment leads to a stable economy.
