I only found some things, like meeting short-term goals and buying-back shares of shareholders, that can have influence on economic growth. In the share buy-back article (The Economist, 2014) is only stated that “They worry…will damage…the economy.” and they don’t come up with hard evidence. In the studies about monitoring and controlling managers of firms, they found evidence that not monitoring will lead to an incentive for managers to shrink (Jensen and Meckling, 1976). Also the compensation of managers will be higher when they are not controlled by institutional investors (Hartzell and Starks, 2003). This means that without monitoring and controlling by institutional investors, there is an agency problem which can lead to maximizing personal wealth of managers instead of maximizing value of the firm.
President Roosevelt also intervened in the stock market by regulating stock trading, so that the Stock Market Crash would never happen again. Ultimately Roosevelt's decision to intervene during this crisis was the key reason that the United States were able to recover from The Great Depression.The policies implemented created modern liberalism within the United States. Therefore it is evident that governments providing a social safety net for citizens can be beneficial to the quality of life of its
Two economic theories I have come across that would be highly relatable to “The Soul of the Marionette” would include: Game Theory and Supply and Demand. From an early onset of the book I had a visual image in my brain of a very controlled environment. “Whether moved by a hidden hand or pulled about by strings, a puppet has no will of its own”. (Gray 2015) First off I would like to take into account what we know Laissez Faire to mean. If we want to explore freedom in our economic climate, then why not start with the management of our banks before the recession hit in 2008.

He attacked Berlin and Brussels’ policies, saying that they constituted a “straitjacket” and wondering why the economic recovery had come in the US much faster than in Europe. “I think that it is not easy to change Europe, when you are alone,” said Tsipras, adding that “we saw that there is no other way. Our European partners and Germany was very, very hard.” … “From now on, my job as a prime minister will be to apply what I consider the wrong medicine, hoping that my country won’t explode, becoming more attractive to private investors and regaining its national
Specifically, the city of London is at risk of losing business to major cities like Paris, Dublin, and Frankfurt (Grice, 2016). City firms may pull out from the UK instead of waiting to see what UK’s economy is going to be like. As a result, banks are largely affected which can result in raising interest rates (Grice, 2016). However, A positive aspect of Brexit is that Britain will no longer have to provide billions of pounds each year to the European Union’s Budget. Private companies can thrive since Brexit no longer has to follow the EU regulation.
Economic growth in democratic government is weakened by leaders worrying about re-election. Politicians in democratic governments make decisions that are good for the short term but have devastating effects, on the long run, just to be reelected. . Authoritarian countries such as China do not have such challenges and thus have achieved economic development and stability. For example, the Ford the automobile company has continually been bailed out by the government after receiving net losses (Bell, 2015).

Tiger v. Barclays Bank Ltd., coming back to customers’ consent, we have seen that the consent to disclose may be express or implied and the court can infer implied consent in the circumstances of the case. In Sutherland’s case, the defendant bank dishonoured a cheque drawn by S on her account in favour of her dress-maker. There were not sufficient funds in the account; but the real reason for the dishonour was the bank’s knowledge that S was betting, since she was drawing cheques in favour of book-makers.
Just like in banks where you can take out the amount of money you want as long as the loss of money will not hurt your budget in the long run. George Washington once said,"the freedom of Speech may be taken away—and, dumb & silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.” This shows that if freedom is taken away, specifically freedom of speech, the people will feel lost and confused in their country. They would feel as if the did not have a say in the countries
He also supported his opinion with a real recently happened life example; the financial crisis that appeared in 2008 and the debt crisis that almost threatened the economy of both USA and Europe. The Federal Reserve failed to see the subprime mortgage crisis coming. The principle models of “Free Market and Invisible Hand” that were used assuming that the markets are always in equilibrium or adjusting to equilibrium if it moved away from it. After the detonation of the crisis, the Feds dropped its high
