Stonehenge  Stonehenge is a large monument made of stone. It is located on a plain north of the city of Salisbury, England. The monument has continuously evolved over a period of about 10,000 years. The structure that we call “Stonehenge” was built between roughly 5,000 and 4,000 years ago and that forms just one part of a larger and highly complex mosaic sacred landscape to a whole culture of people. What is Doctor Parker-Pearson’s theory about the function of Stonehenge? Dr. Parker-Pearson believes Stonehenge was just half of a vast religious complex part of a grand vision. He believed it was used to house the spirits of the dead. It was linked to another mysterious sacred monument and prehistoric city lost for 4,500 years. It was a puzzle to a revolutionary new theory, it is part of something much bigger, it is just one element of a much bigger design. He believes it was built for the ancestors as a home, a domain for the dead. At dawn people gathered at Stonehenge starting a very important day to thank there ancestors for bringing life to the land and making it fertile again. This is the moment they have been waiting…

Win-Win

By | Main Blog | No Comments

Trade is win-win. Two people trade only because each values what he gets more than what he gives up. That’s why in a store both customer and clerk say, “Thank you.” At the international level, trade is also win-win because it allows countries to specialize in what they do well and trade the extra for things they don’t make as well. When free trade is unmolested, the world is richer and has more choices. “If you’re trading with them, it makes war much less likely,” Palmer said. “We’re not going to go to war with Canada. It’s our biggest trading partner—$600 billion a year going across the U.S.-Canada border in trade along the longest non-militarized border in the world. Five thousand miles, counting Alaska. That is trade creating peace.” As the French economist Frederic Bastiat put it, “When goods don’t cross borders, soldiers will.” President Bush joined the moral debate, telling his audience: “Open trade is not just an economic opportunity, it is a moral imperative. Trade creates jobs for the unemployed. When we negotiate for open markets, we are providing new hope for the world’s poor. And when we promote open trade, we are promoting political freedom.

The Crisis in American Banking in The Early 20th Century

By | Main Blog | No Comments

In the last three decades of the twentieth century banking crises were especially frequent. The Federal Reserve System was created in 1913. This was the beginning to a modern era of American banking. Federally regulated system of national banks dominated American banking up until the year of 1864. These banks were allowed to issue currency. The currency was printed by the federal government. The currency was created with specified size and specific design. The amount of currency that was issued was regulated by the national banks capital. At this time period there were various bank failures and financial crises. The central problem against the banking system was in response to the money supply. They were having problems shifting the currency around the country in response to local economic changes. This issue eventually led to another issue called bank runs. Bank runs are a phenomenon in which many of a bank’s depositors try to withdraw their funds due to fears of a bank failure. In the past bank runs have been known to be contagious, with a run on one bank leading to a loss of faith in other banks, causing more bank runs. This led to widespread panic and devastation…

Pack Lunch & Save Money

By | Main Blog | No Comments

Looking for new ways to save money and budget! Eating out is something we all love to do! It is easy, fast, fun, and yummy! Do we really need to be eating out for lunch when we are at work? The answer is no. We can pack a lunch from home. It is more cost efficient and and easier on the waist line. 😉 I personally have always wondered where people get the money to eat out everyday and even if they have the money to do so why is it they choose to spend it there? The cost of eating out is high and poor for your nutrition. Sometimes convenience is not the best route. Buying lunch out can cost anywhere from $5 to $20. Lets say the average person in the “lunch out crowd” spends $10 to buy lunch. For this price you will get a soda, chips and a sandwich. If you made that exact same sandwich at home with a handful of chips and a soda you would be spending all together about $4. In fact I bet you that sandwich tastes even better when you make it fresh from home! The average home made lunch…
