The Amsterdam crisis began when a Dutch group known as the Seppenwolde syndicate made a big, contrarian bet on the shares of East India Company. Those shares had plunged in 1771 mainly because of losses in Bengal, but the company kept paying high dividends and covered up its shortfalls by borrowing money. Convinced that East India shares would quickly rebound, the Seppenwolde group aggressively bought them on margin. But instead of rebounding, the shares fell even further after the company slashed its dividend.
- Every great detective needs his or her definitive story. For Sherlock Holmes it was The Hound of the Baskervilles. For Agatha Christie’s fussy Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot it’s Murder on the Orient Express – a tale in which a bloodthirsty villain kills a wealthy businessman during a train journey through the Balkans. Or are things really what they seem? Sidney Lumet made a beloved film out of the story in 1974, with a stunning cast that included Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman and Albert Finney as Poirot. Now Kenneth Branagh is donning the Belgian’s moustache himself, as well as stepping behind the camera as director, in his glossy new big-screen version, starring Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz and Dame Judi Dench. Is there something new that can be mined from this story? Maybe. But even if not, Christie fans will surely want to climb aboard.

There will no longer be any legal obstacle to the implementation of a universal two-child policy, if the draft amendment to the family planning law is approved by the top legislature by Sunday.
Although Guo has not given any timetable for her retirement, her announcement at December's East Asian Games about a possible one-year hiatus is a clear enough signal. From all evidence, her relationship with Fok seems to have entered another stage. Unless they truly believe that the Chinese lunar calendar warns against a "widow's year" in 2010, we might well see Miss Guo become Mrs Fok.
In the midst of COVID-19 lockdown, a tweet highlights that the economy is about to collapse because we are now consuming only what we ‘need’. This post does not surprise me, as due to my research on drivers of consumerism in India, I am aware that economic capitalism relies solely on the increased levels of consumption driven by desires than needs. The unprecedented scale of lockdown to address COVID-19 results in various welcomed changes in the environment.
We have witnessed 住建部：兜底解决特殊困难群众基本住房安全问题, the rivers across the globe are observed to be cleaner and wildlife is more visible in public spaces. By transcending the widespread agony and uncertainty of this time, many of us have seen the silver lining in terms of how the current state of the environment and society resembles a degrowth state. Are we, however, drawing the right connection?
Degrowth: what and why
Ecological economics, based on the argument ‘门窗企业如何通过“互联网”绑定线上消费者?’, advocates for a better conceptual understanding of the economy as not being independent of the ecological system, but entirely embedded in it. This conceptual understanding critiques the current growth-obsessed economic system, which sees the insatiable consumer desires as the driving force propelling its supposedly perpetual growth.

Immigrant populations in Arkansas, North Carolina and Tennessee have more than tripled since 1990, noted Lee Drutman, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, in an analysis for Vox. Anxiety over those changes may explain why the Republican Party became so much more focused on limiting immigration over that period — and why white voters in those states overwhelmingly support Mr. Trump.
COVID-19 economic pause: Can we equate with degrowth?
大银行已经或多或少地放弃了用高薪留住人才的尝试。自金融危机以来，有一件事很清楚：如果你想暴富，就得去硅谷。露丝波拉特(Ruth Porat)在2015年树立了一个标杆，她放弃了摩根士丹利(Morgan Stanley)首席财务官约1300万美元的年薪，跳槽谷歌（如今的Alphabet）获得五倍于此的薪酬。
Elsewhere, Stockholm School of Economics was a big winner, climbing 16 places to 28, not only recording the best year-on-year progression but also recovering from a drop of 11 places last year.
Beloved TV show characters enter our lives as friends and impact us in crazy ways. They can make us laugh until our sides hurt, cry when things don't go well for them, and call in sick to work when we just can't stop watching and must know what happens. But through it all, we love them. And yet, there's so much that the audience will never know. Some TV shows have dark secrets. Some almost didn't exist at all. Here are some behind the scenes stories of your favorite TV shows.
The most staggering scene is, of course, that in which the alien picks up a young man with the facial condition neurofibromatosis, played by Adam Pearson. Glazer brings to this scene an utter fearlessness and unsentimentality, perhaps a variation on a theme from David Lynch’s The Elephant Man. The alien does not essentially distinguish between his looks and those of her other victims, but her encounter with him – an encounter of two aliens? – triggers a crisis in which she becomes the prey rather than the hunter.
Leading actress Sun Li played Zhou in the drama. Despite her age, Sun, who was born in 1982, still successfully presented a lovely and innocent teenage Zhou in the eyes of many audience members.
Such a pandemic is denoted as an upshot of climate crisis and disruption in the ecological balance. In the coming future, with resorting to business as usual, such external events are likely to be frequent and intense. However, once we manage to find our way around such an external factor, even if temporarily, the economy is waiting to bounce back to its normal. Moreover, as observed in the 软体家具新国标年内出台, the economy is likely to reach a higher throughput than the initial after the lockdown.
This has happened elsewhere.
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both won for their startlingly gaunt performances in the Texas HIV drama 'Dallas Buyers Club.' Leonardo DiCaprio, a nine-time Golden Globe nominee, won his second Globe for best actor in a comedy for his uninhibited work in 'The Wolf of Wall Street.' He thanked director Martin Scorsese for his mentorship ('Wolf' is their fifth film together) and for 'allowing me to stalk you to make this movie.'
China's economy grew last month, according to a closely-monitored PMI series - which indicated growth for the first time in four months.
Nirvana in Fire unexpectedly achieved a tremendous success, rising like a star among the TV dramas in the fall of 2015. Also adapted from an online novel of the same name written by Hai Yan, the adaptation for the first time found its way on the screen in September 2015. Staring Hu Ge and Liu Tao, the series shows a talented military strategist endeavoring to clear his name through continuous fights. The fictional characters and dynasty let the adaptation smartly avoid being criticized for not sticking to historical accuracy. And the drama`s delicate internal settings and impeccable storyline were highly praised by the audiences.
My research, as well as several anthropological studies, show how the prevailing notions of the good life have slowly turned into being materialistic. It means now we use material goods to earn status, construct identities, and mark success and value them over intangible things like relationships.
FRESH OFF THE BOAT (ABC, Feb. 4) A Chinese-American family adjusts to life in mid-'90s Florida in this culture-clash comedy based on a memoir by the restaurateur and food-and-travel-show host Eddie Huang.

Dachis: JetBlue started the year with some tough moments (a pilot’s panic attack gave them a rough start), but customer satisfaction and excellent social service during the busy holiday travel season carried the brand to success in 2012.
It was Somerset Maugham who said the French Riviera is “a sunny place for shady people” – and looking around at all the 'models' in the hotel lobbies and the men in dark sunglasses who seemed to know them, I knew what he meant. Behind the festival's shiny facade, there is an unseemly side – and beneath the azure waters, a polluted mess. The French diver and environmentalist Laurent Lombard's video of the Cannes seabed strewn with waste and debris went viral before the festival began. We were assured there was no danger to swimmers, and the mayor had it cleaned up according to the Daily Mail – but the Med had certainly lost some of its sparkle.

Logan's claws are slow on the draw and his self-healing powers are on the fritz, but he's committed to caring for his mentor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart, so good you want to applaud). It's not easy watching Professor X suffer seizures that rattle his telepathic brain. Make no mistake, Logan earns its tears. If Jackman and Stewart are serious about this being their mutual X-Men swan song, they could not have crafted a more heartfelt valedictory.

It is high time when we take this unwarranted pause seriously, and as most of us now cannot go outside, we should focus on going inside to deeply reflect on our notions of a good life. Let us rise collectively and join forces to, as UN appeals, fundamentally reconstruct a ‘different economy’.
