Democracia vs neoliberalismo económico. Condicionantes ideológicos de las preferencias políticas y económicas en la ciudad de Lima
Rottenbacher de Rojas, Jan Marc;Schmitz, Mathias;
Revista mexicana de ciencias políticas y sociales , 2012,
Abstract: this study analyzes the influence of political ideology on three sociopolitical attitudes: the support to the economic model of neo liberalism, the support to the po- litical democratic system, and the lack of interest in politics, in a sample given to young adults in the city of lima (n=279). measures of political ideology were done using scales of authoritarianism of the right wing (rwa), orientation towards social dominance (sdo), political orientation to the right and justification of inequality. three models of structural equations were contrasted. the two final models present good indicators of adjustment. both models propose that while rwa, sdo and rightist political orientation exert direct influence on the support to the economic neo liberal, the sdo influences in a reverse fashion on the support of a democratic system. the model that presented the best degree of adjustment proposes as well, that the lack of interest in politics influences directly on the support to the neo liberal economic model. it discusses in the end, the relation between political conservatism, economic neo liberalism and the concept of political apathy.
Democracia vs neoliberalismo económico. Condicionantes ideológicos de las preferencias políticas y económicas en la ciudad de Lima
Jan Marc Rottenbacher de Rojas,Mathias Schmitz
Revista mexicana de ciencias políticas y sociales , 2012,
Abstract: Este estudio analiza la influencia de la ideología política sobre tres actitudes sociopolíticas: el apoyo al modelo económico neoliberal, el apoyo al sistema político democrático y el desinterés por la política, en una muestra de adultos jóvenes de la ciudad de Lima (N = 279). Como medidas de ideología política se utilizaron escalas de autoritarismo de ala derecha (rwa), orientación hacia la dominancia social (sdo), orientación política de derecha y justificación de la inequidad. Se contrastaron tres modelos de ecuaciones estructurales. Los dos modelos finales presentaron buenos indicadores de ajuste. Ambos modelos proponen que, mientras el rwa, la sdo y la orientación política de derecha ejercen influencia directa sobre el apoyo al modelo económico neoliberal, la sdo influye de manera inversa sobre el apoyo al sistema democrático. El modelo que presentó el mejor grado de ajuste propone además, que el desinterés por la política influye directamente sobre el apoyo al modelo económico neoliberal. Se discute finalmente acerca de la relación entre conservadurismo político, neoliberalismo económico y el concepto de apatía política.
Neue Techniken der qualitativen Gespr chsforschung: Computergestützte Transkription von Videokonferenzen New Techniques in Qualitative Conversation Analysis: Computer-based Transcription of Videoconferences Nuevas técnicas en análisis de conversación cualitativa: Transcripción de vídeo-conferencias a través de computadoras

Forum : Qualitative Social Research , 2002,
Abstract: Jede qualitative Gespr chsforschung muss mit einer pr zisen Bestimmung der zu untersuchenden Ereignisse und Prozesse beginnen, und dieser sind dann die Verfahren der Beobachtung und Beschreibung, der Aufzeichnung und der Transkription anzupassen, und nicht umgekehrt. Für das DFG-Projekt "Audiovisuelle Fernkommunikation" an der Universit t Essen, das seit Februar 2000 die Nutzung von Videokonferenzen als eine Form technisch vermittelter Kommunikation untersucht, bedeutet dies, dass für das kommunikative Ereignis "Videokonferenz" unter Berücksichtigung seiner spezifischen Merkmale – insbesondere unterschiedliche Wahrnehmungsbedingungen aufgrund der r umlichen Trennung und technisch bedingte zeitliche Verz gerungen der Gespr chsbeitr ge zwischen den beiden Standorten – angemessene Mess- und Transkriptionsverfahren entwickelt werden müssen. Denn nur auf diese Weise und keineswegs schon durch die Mehrfachbetrachtung der Videoaufzeichnung wird die Kommunikation per Videokonferenz einer qualitativen Gespr chsforschung zug nglich gemacht. Vor dem Hintergrund bisher verwendeter Verfahren zur Transkription von Videokonferenzen erscheint dies um so dringlicher, als diese meist übernahmen oder Modifikationen konventioneller Vorgehensweisen darstellen, die ihrerseits den spezifischen Merkmalen der audiovisuellen Fernkommunikation nicht gerecht zu werden verm gen. Denn durch die technische Vermittlung entstehen z.B. zwei getrennte, aber letztlich doch zusammengeh rige Sequenzen kommunikativer Ereignisse. Um diesem Umstand im Transkript gerecht zu werden, bedarf es einer Synchronisation der Aufzeichnungen der an der Videokonferenz beteiligten Standorte in einem, den gesamten Kommunikationsprozess wiedergebenden Transkript; hierfür wiederum bedarf es einer Orientierung an einer objektiven Zeitleiste. Dabei erlaubt erst eine "Timeline" mit framegenauer Einteilung (1/25 Sekunden) eine detaillierte Analyse einzelner kommunikativer Besonderheiten, wie etwa der zeitlichen Verz gerung der Backchannel-Signale. Im Gegensatz dazu kann das Transkript verbaler u erungen weder das zeitliche Geschehen hinreichend abbilden noch als Zuordnungsleiste für die Transkription nonverbaler Elemente ausreichen. Als Vorschlag zur L sung der genannten Probleme wird eine modifizierte und derart erweiterte Version des multimedialen Transkriptionsverfahrens ComTrans vorgestellt, das die spezifischen Merkmale der Videokonferenzkommunikation erfasst und für qualitative Analysen hinreichend umfassend abgebildet werden k nnen. Dadurch entstehen neue M glichkeiten für die qualitative Sozialforschung,
Schwannoma-like pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid

Rare Tumors , 2011, DOI: 10.4081/rt.2011.e40
Abstract: Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common benign salivary gland tumour. It can occur in any salivary gland, but is most frequently found in the parotid gland. Chondroid metaplasia is a frequent finding in pleomorphic adenoma. Other forms of metaplasia have been described, but are encountered less frequently. We report a rare case of unusual pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland with schwannoma- like feature.
Commodity Price Stabilization under Unattainable Stocks  [PDF]
Andrew Schmitz
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.85061
Abstract: Commodity price stabilization continues to be a subject of keen interest to policy makers. The general conclusion within the context of welfare economics is that price stabilization brought about through stockholding activities leads to a net welfare improvement to society even though there are gainers and losers from price stabilization policies. Under the standard price expectation formulation used, storage does not result in complete price stability, but in price fluctuations within a positive price band. However, it does generate price stability under an alternative price expectation framework. Under the standard price expectation formulation, the gains from stability are positive, but much less than under an alternative price expectation specification.
Producers’ Preference for Price Instability?  [PDF]
Andrew Schmitz
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.810114
Abstract: The debate over whether producers prefer price instability to price stability continues, especially where policies are often endorsed that aim at generating stability. Such policies include the holding of agriculture commodity stocks by government to bring about price stability. But why would producers support such a policy given that producers prefer price instability, or do they? Oi argues that producers prefer price instability, which is opposite to the conclusion reached by Massell. In this paper, we take up the issue as to producers’ preference for price instability using the classic welfare economic framework used by Massell and Just et al. We develop a producer price expectation model that brings about price stability, which is possible without storage. We use this as the basis upon which to compare price stability to price instability. Our conclusion is that producers prefer price instability regardless of whether it is due to demand or supply shocks.
Compensation and the Twin Producer Gains from Production Quotas  [PDF]
Troy G. Schmitz, Andrew Schmitz
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2011.13015
Abstract: The limited theory on production quotas focuses on the impact of introducing quotas when otherwise the market would be competitive. We develop a model also on the effect of removing quotas, and then consider the combined effects of both introducing and removing quotas. Under the value of quota approach, the amount of money spent by the government for the buyout (i.e., value of quota) is equal to the sum of the net gain to producers when the quota was introduced plus the net gain if it were removed. Compensation is the key to a quota buyout, as producers have little interest in politically supporting a government compensated buyout unless they gain by so doing.

Inflated Production Quota Gains Paid for by a Consumption Tax  [PDF]
Troy G. Schmitz, Andrew Schmitz, Dwayne Haynes
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2012.21012
Abstract: We consider a production quota buyout that is paid for by a consumption tax. If producers are paid the true value of the quota via a consumption tax, the net producer gain is zero for the combined introduction and removal of quota (even though the quota value is positive) since the net gain to producers when the quota was introduced is equal to the net loss to producers when the production quota is removed. Therefore, the quota value does not measure the producer net gain from both the introduction and removal of the production quota. The quota value merely represents the consumption tax amount. This is also true if producers are paid (which is often the case) an inflated quota value that is more than the true quota value.
Tumor Evasion from T Cell Surveillance

Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/918471
Abstract: An intact immune system is essential to prevent the development and progression of neoplastic cells in a process termed immune surveillance. During this process the innate and the adaptive immune systems closely cooperate and especially T cells play an important role to detect and eliminate tumor cells. Due to the mechanism of central tolerance the frequency of T cells displaying appropriate arranged tumor-peptide-specific-T-cell receptors is very low and their activation by professional antigen-presenting cells, such as dendritic cells, is frequently hampered by insufficient costimulation resulting in peripheral tolerance. In addition, inhibitory immune circuits can impair an efficient antitumoral response of reactive T cells. It also has been demonstrated that large tumor burden can promote a state of immunosuppression that in turn can facilitate neoplastic progression. Moreover, tumor cells, which mostly are genetically instable, can gain rescue mechanisms which further impair immune surveillance by T cells. Herein, we summarize the data on how tumor cells evade T-cell immune surveillance with the focus on solid tumors and describe approaches to improve anticancer capacity of T cells.
