Wikipedia really did change the way people engage in research in the internet. Get Your Wiki, a successful Wikipedia writing, editing, and monitoring service, has done its part to make sure content on the online encyclopedia is well-crafted. Wikipedia, itself, has taken steps to make sure the online community meets all standards of excellence.

One step Wikipedia is taking focuses on improving content related to the subject of indigenous peoples. The venerable Smithsonian Magazine recently published an article that delves into the story behind Wikipedia’s decision to increase text related to Native Americans and other indigenous persons.

The article points out there were omissions of famous indigenous peoples in the virtual pages of Wikipedia. Such an oversight is not purposeful. Wikipedia relies solely on volunteers to contribute content. Anyone can contribute new entries or update a Wikipedia page as long as the rules of the site are met. If no one is writing on a particular topic, then the topic won’t appear. A lack of submissions of indigenous peoples has become glaring so Wikipedia is doing something about it.

Wikipedia has supported an edit-a-thon that coincided with Indigenous Peoples’ Day. This particular edit-a-thon follows in the footsteps of other ones that focused on feminist subjects. With such a direct appeal to experts who know these subjects, an increase in diverse content is sure to follow.

Wikipedia content is famous for its ability to provide reference material for people conducting research. The content can be employed for strategic means as well. A decent presence on Wikipedia can be weaved into all manner of marketing and public relations campaigns. Simply linking to a detailed Wikipedia page from a commercial website gives visitors a confidence boost towards the subject of the content.

The aforementioned Get Your Wiki service could absolutely help those wondering what is needed to create the best Wikipedia page. What is needed is the right help. Get Your Wiki can produce and even translate Wikipedia content on behalf of a customer.

And customers do want to feel confident that the material composed and published on the Wikipedia page will yield the desired result. On the most basic level, the content has to enhance the reputation of the subject. Professional-level writing helps with this outcome.

Wikipedia remains a fantastic source of assistance to those who read its pages. The subjects presented on the pages have much to gain as well.

The global financial crisis of 2007-08 marks the worst economic disaster of the 21st century. It left many global economies on their knees, and its effects are still being experienced almost a decade later. An investment banker in George Soros saw it coming and warned authorities, but it was a case of too little too late.

In 2011, George Soros forecast another economic disaster in Europe as a result of a soaring debt crisis in Greece. A few years later, the Greek economy collapsed and dragged the entire European Union with it. Numerous attempts have been made by the regional bloc to dig Greece out of trouble with minimal results. A closer look at these two cases reveals the tendency to over-borrow money from local and international markets.

Internal and external borrowing on marketrealist.com allows countries to meet their growth and development motives comfortably. However, over reliance on debt leads to an imbalance that eventually topples even the largest economies. In 2007 for instance, the real estate sector in the US had a boom that prompted developers to take billions of dollars from investment banks. These debts went out of control and left minimal deposits in cash reserves.

The Chinese economy seems to exhibit similar traits much to the concern of George Soros and other economic oversight authorities. The Chinese economy started on a low in 2016 but has steadily improved over the months largely because of capital injection in the real estate sector. The credit markets sponsor these injections. Statistics indicate the Chinese debt almost doubles the global average of 1.4 trillion Yuan. Judging from these symptoms, Soros predicts the Chinese economy to be running on borrowed time.

Elsewhere, George Soros utilizes his financial resources to bring about social and economic change to communities around the world. His philanthropy is made possible by the presence of a network of Open Society Foundations around the world. George Soros is the founding thinker of these foundations and also leads them as the organizing chairperson. Soros feels that his successes in the financial markets over the years’ act as a platform for his philanthropy and moral stand on tough issues.

These foundations operate in the majority of the countries around the world and root out social ills such as illiteracy, corruption, bad governance and human rights violations. Through these networks, Soros, and his partners have reached marginalized group, refugees in war-torn areas provided legal and educational support to needy families.

George Soros feels the world would be a better place if all nations and communities embraced their diversity and sought non-violence and creative means of conflict resolution. He also feels that human beings should be responsible for life and each other.

Igor Cornelsen on imgfave is a retired banker, private investor, and financial advisor, originally from Brazil. During his career, he held top positions at Brazil’s major financial institutions, eventually retiring to Florida and the Bahamas. Due to his extensive experience, Igor Cornelsen often comments on Brazilian markets and the economy as a whole.

Igor Cornelsen recently observed that despite the economic slowdown that Brazil is currently facing, in part due to the Rousseff administration’s policies, Brazil’s banks are posting profits. According to Cornelsen, this is the result of solid lending practices, with loans going to creditworthy borrowers only. Although the banking sector is not immune to the problems that plague the wider economy, so far it continues to do well.

Igor Cornelsen, however, is not quite as bullish on the future of the Brazilian economy as a whole. In his view, the country’s monetary policy is in need of a complete overhaul. He sees the administration’s focus on keeping interest rates sky-high and an overvalued Real as two of the major problems, as well as expensive projects will little social or economic benefits. As a result, economic growth has been dismal.

The plethora of corruption scandals that has rocked the country and the lack of public and investor confidence in the government have also added to the problem, according to Igor Cornelsen. The Petrobras scandal, involving the bankruptcy of the country’s state-run oil company, has brought the legitimacy of the administration into question and has even led to calls for impeachment proceedings to begin.

Cornelsen believes the appointment of Chicago Ph.D. Joaquin Levy as Finance Minister provides a glimmer of hope. In his view, the only hope for the country is to return to the pre-2008 policies that led to the country’s economic transformation. In the present state of affairs, the financial climate is simply not welcoming to investors, severely limiting growth.
