    Differences in End-Customer Power Prices Across the EU – Reasons and Challenges for the Future.Paweł Lont - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (3):1-9.
    Many years have passed since the first liberalization processes in the electricity sectors the in European Union that were performed in order to establish a single market for electricity. In practice, convergence between neighbouring market areas was established mainly between the Member States in Central-Western Europe, while other countries have allowed for only limited levels of competition. As a consequence, many market areas remain illiquid and consumers pay relatively higher prices for the energy they consume. The final bill is further (...)

    Stability in a Two-Dimensional Dynamical System of Endogenous Growth with Public Capital.Aleksandra Borowska - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (2):41-48.
    The aim of this study is to present a stability in a two-dimensional dynamical system of endogenous growth with public capital. We assume the simple model of the economic growth, in which both private and public capital can influence on the rate of growth of knowledge. The public capital is rival but non excludable goods, i.e. there is a congestion in use of public capital. The model of growth is formulated as a two-dimensional dynamical system. Using mathematical methods of dynamical (...)

    Endogenous Growth Model With Financial Intermediation.Dominika Byrska - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (2):49-57.
    In this paper, we analyse the simplest possible three-dimensional model of endogenous growth to account for the relationship between financial intermediation and economic growth. In our setting, households maximize an interim utility function and firms maximize profit. Households can save money only through banks which offer firms investment loans. We show that under very general assumptions, investments realized by firms depend not only on savings accumulated by banks but also on financial intermediation technology ϕ. Using mathematical methods of dynamical systems, (...)

Firstly, the purpose of this study is to analyze changes, which in literature are considered to be symptoms of financialization in (...)

The authors suggest the use of solutions from the area of psychology, sociology or cultural studies in economics, which allow considering economics as a humanities science. This special issue consists of this introduction and (...)

    Unique Goals of Family Businesses and Their Absorption of Finance Instruments in the Financialization Era.Beata Żukowska & Robert Zajkowski - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (2):31-40.
    Nowadays financialization seems to be an inherent and obvious phenomenon and it appears to have infected all industrialized economies. Within general phenomenon of financialization, three areas should be indicated: financialization as a system of capital accumulation, financialization of business entities and financialization of every day-life.

    A Short History of the Discovery of Black Holes.Martin Braddock - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (1):51-54.
    The concept of black holes or completely collapsed gravitational objects as they were originally called has fascinated the scientific community and writers of science fiction for centuries. The mathematical proof of the existence of black holes came from the collation of multiple lines of evidence, some of which were highly debated and was derived from both indirect and direct sources. The measurement of gravitational waves and the observation of a black hole represent one of the most astounding achievements in astrophysics (...)

    The Sociology of Global Warming: A Scientometric Look.Riccardo Campa - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (1):18-33.
    The theory of anthropogenic global warming enjoys considerable consensus among experts. It is widely recognized that global industrialization is producing an increase in the planet’s temperatures and causing environmental disasters. Still, there are scholars – although a minority – who consider groundless either the idea of global warming itself or the idea that it constitutes an existential threat for humanity. This lack of scientific unanimity ignites controversies in the political world, the mass media, and public opinion as well. Sociologists have (...)

    Reply to Walter Block on Ethical Vegetarianism.Michael Huemer - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (1):41-50.
    I address Walter Block’s recent criticisms of my book, Dialogues on Ethical Vegetarianism. Methodologically, Block relies too much on appeals to contentious and extreme assumptions. Substantively, most of his objections are irrelevant to the central issue of the book. Those that are relevant turn on false assumptions or lead to absurd consequences. In the end, Block’s claim to oppose suffering cannot be reconciled with his indifference to a practice that probably causes, every few years, more suffering than all the suffering (...)

    Theology in Times of Pandemic.Lluis Oviedo - 2021 - Studia Humana 10 (1):34-40.
    A question arises regarding theology and its functions when trying to cope with the coronavirus pandemic. Surely Christian faith – along with other religions – can play a role in helping to deal with this crisis, both for individuals and collectively. Theology connects with the effort religious faith and Churches perform and provides models and ideas to highlight the Christian sense of what is happening, that is, in reference to a saving God. Four keys, rooted in the Christian tradition, are (...)
