Today was the continuation of last week’s topic: Social Security Systems, mainly retirement pay. Especially the german version of it…

Today’s topics were social politics and social security systems. He started by explaining the Phillips Curve and did provide us with the numbers and curves for Germany from 1955 to 1990. Then he did explain Okun’s Law and from there on dived into social security systems, where there was a couple of discussions around the late changes in law in Germany.

Again, a nice start into the week!

Today’s topic was the continuation of last week’s session, and did cover multiple aspects of the keynesian economics as well as for example the Harrod-Domar model. Main topics were different aspects of who’s going to “pay” for the credits a government or state is using to invest in its future. So Development economics was the last topic of today’s lecture.

A real OpenSource HA Cluster!

By , June 10, 2009 02:38

OpenHACluster (OHAC) has been out for quite some time now, but with the new release of OpenSolaris a new version was required.

So, here’s a Video on OpenSolaris 2009.06 Open HA Cluster. Check it out!

Information on how to get access to it, read Nick Solter’s Blog entry about that.

Remember: Sun’s Cluster product is NOT a framework, it’s a real, ready to use, fully working product. The Open HA Cluster is just the OpenSource version of that to be used in conjunction with OpenSolaris!

Today’s topic was: national bankruptcy. It was the first in a row of two lectures, so we’ll see, what he’ll discuss next week additionally. Today he did cover the basis, all the definitions needed in order to understand the implications. A larger section today was devoted to the upcoming change of article 115 of the german consitution (see here) and the implications of the european stability and growth pact on that article.
