Abstract: Does the American recession and the decline of stock markets in 2000 represent a turning point of world capitalist dynamics, which breaks with neo-liberalism? This paper advances an analysis of the economic moment of this question. After a conceptual introduction, which defines terms such as neo-liberalism, globalisation, imperialism and hegemony, a more concrete analysis, based on national accounting statistics from Europe but especially the US, is advanced in the remainder of the paper. Neoliberalism created new income flows in favour of capitalist owners that nevertheless, because of increased rent and dividend income at the expense of retained profits, have been detrimental to capital accumulation. In this context, the US has benefited from its key position in the asymmetrical process of exploiting the rest of the world and supplying income to international capital. However, growing external deficits are gradually eroding the benefits of the asymmetrical yield. These in turn are the result of an intensified, debt-financed, consumption by rich American households, underwritten by the US state. This consumption, as well as an unusual inflow of foreign capital, were behind the long US boom 1994-2000 (a unique boom that could not be copied elsewhere, but indeed had the stagnation of Europe as the other side of its coin). However, declining profit rates due to the rise of labour costs and rising interest burdens interrupted the boom in 2000, and the current 'correction' is severe and includes the collapse of the stock market and financial turmoil. But debts are still growing in what seems to be a self-limiting contradictory process, which is bound to have profound qualitative implications for the capitalist world economy as a whole.

Abstract: In 2003, Ott and Yorke explored the idea of using induced dynamics to deduce properties of complex dynamical systems on finite-dimensional Euclidean spaces. Given a dynamical system $f\colon \mathbb\left\{R\right\}^\left\{n\right\} \to \mathbb\left\{R\right\}^\left\{n\right\}, and a compact invariant set A \subset \mathbb\left\{R\right\}^\left\{n\right\}, let\phi \colon \mathbb\left\{R\right\}^\left\{n\right\} \to \mathbb\left\{R\right\}^\left\{m\right\}be a smooth function, where m < n . We interpret\phi\left(x\right)as an infinitely precise measurement ofmphysical quantities at the pointx \in \mathbb\left\{R\right\}^\left\{n\right\}. Ott and Yorke prove that if the induced map\bar\left\{f\right\} \colon \phi\left(A\right) \to \phi\left(A\right)associated withf exists, and if\phiis`generic\text{'}, then the behavior of\bar\left\{f\right\}accurately reflects the behavior of f on A .$

We extend the work of Ott and Yorke by studying complex dynamical systems in the $\textit\left\{infinite\right\}-dimensional setting, with an emphasis on Hilbert and Banach spaces. We formulate theorems that allow us to compute invariants of the full system from the induced dynamics. In particular, we are interested in examining the preservation of attractor dimension and Lyapunov exponents. We aim to apply our results to flows on function spaces that are generated by the partial differential equations of fluid mechanics. In the spirit of Ott and Yorke, we formulate our hypotheses in terms of the induced dynamics, expressing our theorems in Platonic form.$

Abstract: The present study aimed to identify motivational archetypes and their signature dynamics using cluster analysis and other statistical techniques based on questionnaire data collected from 1,278 English learners in Iran. Five motivational archetypes emerged and the groups were compared in terms of their emotional, motivational, and linguistic attractor states.

Abstract: For any political entity, endogenous pressure converges as external violence, while exogenous pressure results in internal violence. Thus the cause of violence is not in the relations between political actors but within the assailant per se.

Abstract: This paper introduces the modeling of bivariate dynamical changes as a method of assessing the intervention effects of a community-based substance prevention program. The program aimed to improve self-efficacy and strengthen drug prevention skills among African American, Caribbean and Latino youth from high-risk US neighborhoods. Applying the techniques of dynamical modeling with latent change scores (LCS) to a four-wave data set, we show how the intervention has spurred a strong coupling effect between Internal locus of Control (ILC) and Intent to Use Substances (IUS) in the intervention group, as well as new mutual dynamic links – i.e., changes in ILC causing subsequent IUS changes, and vice versa. The dynamic models explain well the wave-like pattern of change uncovered in the intervention group. Our findings carry strong methodological implications for policy makers, practitioners and health researchers alike.
