Seldom before have developments in the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles influenced the development of society as a whole. Eachphase of the economic cycle produces new trends and evolving economic theories. Even the field of research responds directly to economic fluctuations. There is no questioning the fact that positive developments within the economy, booming economic cycles and solid stock markets have a positive impact on the development of society.
For this reason, entire branches of research are engaged in analyzing the economy, developments in the stock markets and economic cycles. With great interest, researchers continuously observe the individual phases of the economic cycles. Interestingly enough, the detailed examination of the economy, economic cycles and the stock markets in regular intervals is precisely what teaches us that prior conclusions and scientific findings regarding the stock market and economic cycle developments must be constantly corrected and enhanced.
When the stock market, and thus the economy as whole, experiences far-reaching, long term changes, experts never fail to reanalyze and reexamine heretofore irrevocable theories about stock markets and economic cycles
The theory of perpetual motion is generally considered physically impossible under the laws of physics. If society is viewed in terms of perpetual motion though, it doesn't take long to realize that this triad, which consists of the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles, is a fixed component of the whole.
During the course of a detailed observation, one thing that quickly emerges is that this triad is much more than what an initial glance could reveal. The three parts of the triad, stock markets, the economy and economic cycles , are subject to periodic shifts. These cyclical changes not only influence one another. Radical shifts in stock market prices always correspond directly to changes in segments of a country's economy. In turn, this always impacts economic cycles.
If only one part of the triad undergoes change, this also affects the harmonious interaction of the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles. In turn this leads to changes within the respective society. All too often, the radical shifts of the past decades have dramatically demonstrated where they can lead to.
We are conversely reminded that society is also subject to constant change. Attitudes, emotions and values are in a constant state of flux. Each of these changes has a direct impact on the economy. Negative sentiments directly influence the development of the stock markets and thus a country's entire economic cycle.
A country's overall political environment can have a devastating impact on its economy. Society pays for its mistakes and failures through a slow-down of the economy. Stock markets are likewise sensitive.
It comes as no surprise then that an entire armada of experts focuses their attention on the stock markets, our economy and how economic cycles develop. The economy is tied closely to the stock markets. The stock markets in turn drive economic cycles, which then influence the economy.
Theseamless interaction of the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles has yet to lose its fascination.
This area provides up-to-date and interesting developments from the world of business, economics and finance.
A wealth of information is available on topics ranging from stock markets, consumer climate, labor market policies, bond markets, foreign trade and interest rate trends to stock exchange news and economic forecasts.
A new study proposes a solution for mitigating the increasingly risky nature of financial markets, based on an analysis of systemic risk in financial networks.

Researchers at the University of Luxembourg are warning of an overheating art market, one of the fastest-growing investment sectors of the past decade, after applying a new bubble detection method analysing millions of auction records.
Few sectors of the market have rebounded as robustly as art – particularly contemporary art, which has doubled in value since the beginning of the financial...07.01.2016 | Read more
New research at the Luxembourg School of Finance suggests that investor belief in higher returns by investing in private equity investment funds may be misplaced, calling into question their rising popularity.
Many investors believe that higher returns can be achieved by investing in funds which buy firms not listed on stock markets (so-called private equity...13.10.2015 | Read more
In July, the Container Throughput Index of RWI and ISL softened from 118.6 (revised June value) to 118.4 points.
However, this is not a statistically significant decrease. The average amplitude of revision over the past years was 0.6 points; the June value was revised...25.08.2015 | Read more

In June, the RWI/ISL Container Throughput Index declined once more, albeit by a small amount. From a (revised) 118.2 points the index softened to 118.1 points.
The index has now been falling since February 2015. The flash estimate for June is based on data for 41 ports, which combined account for almost 73% of the...23.07.2015 | Read more
In May, the RWI/ISL Container Throughput Index shrank by almost two points from a (revised) 119.8 to 117.9 points. The index thus relapsed to a low level last seen in 2014.
Declining port handling volumes have been reported predominantly in some Asian ports as well as in the Baltic Sea.23.06.2015 | Read more
Ruthless exploitation, environmental disasters and refugees. That is a common narrative of the consequences of the extraction of natural resources in Africa. A new dissertation from the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg gives a more nuanced picture. Stronger labor market participation for women, more gender equality and halving infant death are also part of the recent expansion of mining in Africa.
“There are, of course, lots of problems with extractive industries – oil, natural gas and mineral mining – in Africa. But I have explored welfare determinants...02.06.2015 | Read more
In April, the Container Throughput Index of RWI and ISL increased slightly to 120.1 points from a revised 119.9 points in March.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
