Puterea şi teritoriul – factori de producţie şi casus belli – se schimbă. Influenţat de computerizare, globalizare şi deteritorializare, spaţiul global provoacă geometria tradiţională a teritoriului şi se îndreaptă spre forme multiple şi descentralizate, provocând puterea suverană a statelor, care nu devin actori marginali, supuşi, cum declamă unii, ci actori hibrizi, disimulativi. Globalizarea, computerizarea şi apariţia propagării la scară planetară a riscurilor au transformat discursurile şi repertoriile gândirii geopolitice, însă este puţin probabilă o demisie a geopoliticii. Pretendenţi-challengeri au tot fost lansaţi sub diferite denumiri şi deghizări în vremurile postmoderne, dar departe de a înlocui geopolitica clasică, ei rămân mai degrabă complementari.

The concept of fiscal sustainability is discussed in the framework of the general sustainability property of a system. To this end, after some theoretical preliminaries, a set of algebraic formalizations is provided in order to capture the concept of fiscal sustainability from a methodological perspective. Some proposals are made, while also including some methodological precautions.

The stake of this essay is to propose a rediscovery of Tocqueville, which means to bring to light “the effects of analogy or isomorphism which, starting from the actual forms of knowledge, make a figure that has become unclear or disappeared perceptible”. Starting from a postmodern perspective, those features of modernity that were present “in nuce” within the American society.

In the present article, the authors start from the idea that, in Romania, the opportunities of the circular economy are directly related to environmental protection, the increase in competitiveness and the intake of the results of technological innovation and research. Within “the circle that closes”, the public policy within the field of discussion is analyzed based on five components.

Who will win the race to become the first circular city in Europe? A couple of cities struggle to be the first that adopt the circular economy agenda, yet it is not so easy to achieve the performance of being on top. From London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin to Brussels, Glasgow, Venlo and Peterborough, circularity has become part of foreground programs and is expected to be widely adopted.

In order to understand the capital market and the principles underlying its administration, it is necessary to know, on the one hand, the economic and financial models that express its balance and its performance in the context of globalization and, on the other hand, explain, in scientific terms, people’s behaviour regarding money management on this market.
