Today at 16:00 UTC we update our understanding of construction spend in educational settlements every month and find that our industry ranks near the top of United States annual spend reported by the Census Bureau -- about $100 billion annually -- greater than the gross domestic product of more than half the world's 200-odd nations.
Real estate is half the value of the world's assets. It is an important investment class for pension funds; often 70 to 80 percent of total wealth and now in the crosshairs of large government.
Blockchain is a database that allows mutually mistrusting entities to exchange financial value and interact without relying on a trusted third party. This will change most dimensions of the education industry; not the least of which is credentialing (i.e. degree granting), physical asset management, purchasing and revenue capture.
Distributed ledger technologies and associated applications are beginning to make inroads in the financial services industry. The best known implementation, the Bitcoin blockchain, has been described as a “trustless” network that enables value transfer among participants without the need for an intermediary or central verifier.
Educational settlements are the closest many people come to feel at home in beautiful surroundings. The catalog that informs the safety and sustainability of these "cities-within-cities" changes 100 to 1000 times per day. By design titles are unstable, time-sensitive and copyright protected. We explore the action continuously; assign priorities, then schedule a separate teleconference to formulate responses to public consultations. Daily colloquia topics appear on our CALENDAR.
With the advent of the era of big data, the management of university endowment fund archives presents many features, such as intelligence, convenience and high efficiency... [A suggestion is put forward how to promote the efficiency of university endowment fund archives under the background of the era of big data.]
We follow listings of a few offerings and examine their claims about new building construction, operations, maintenance and related budgetary "sausage-making". Large chunks of the US population want to retire on the yield thrown off by these instruments. School bonds can partially protect retirees from the looming tax hammering to be administered by the partisans of Leviathan government.
Ethereum is a global, open-source platform for decentralized applications. It is one of several digital languages finding its place in the blockchain upheaval. On Ethereum, you can write code that controls digital value in smart contracts and is accessible anywhere in the world. In open source, you may submit a proposal for improvement or comment upon the suggestions made by others at any time
As the adage goes: "The cure for high prices, is high prices". Today -- ahead of local school board elections in the United States tomorrow -- we explore fiscal runaway with particular interest in the instruments that finance construction of the real assets in educational settlements. We recap what we have been doing for 30-odd years to place downward pressure on the runaway; even though the "educationistas" could care less about cost.
