Part 9 – Financial Literacy

We believe as members of www.the1873network.org that eco freedom is best won by free human actors through a market system and any socialist idea founded on statistic innovation undermines the interests of the poor. However, most post-colonial dispensations are infested by the idea that one can elect state craftsmanship excellence and a commander-in-chief can cause or engineer economic outcomes through the agency of the state.

Promoting digital literacy for women and girls at the bottom of the pyramid

Good Bosses Switch Between Two Leadership Styles

Think back to the last team project you participated in at work. How did the person running the project lead the group? Did they lead by presenting a plan and using their authority to insist that others follow along? Or did the person instead lead by explaining why a particular course of action seemed like the best one, allowing others to willfully get on board? These two leadership styles, which I and other researchers refer to as dominance and prestige, respectively, reflect two fundamental strategies people use to navigate their…
