Abstract: Analyses of market institutions often consider the state an actor to set rules of game and incentives. Taking China¡¯s market transition as an example, this essay develops a framework to explain how individuals¡¯ behavior of state bureaucrats by commoditization of political power shapes formation of market institutions and produces what kind of socioeconomic consequences.

When political power is commoditized, it no longer simply shapes rules of transaction; the power itself derives a specific sort of transactional commodity for money. Power holders make their permit necessary for market transactions; then charge for the permit and take the money. The commoditization of power may result in spontaneous administration and make state autonomy ineffective. The exchange of administrative permits for money provides profit for individual bureaucrats at the cost of public. Such transactions may produce enough incentives for the bureaucrats to work against government regulations and laws for their personal gains.

The commoditization of power makes property rights less crucial in personal wealth accumulations. One of its socioeconomic consequences is unequal income distribution and social polarization. In just twenty years or more, China has been transformed from a state of near absolute egalitarianism to one of the most egregious in terms of the gap between rich and poor. Under such conditions, the potential for social instability becomes quite high. Moreover, the social polarization has finally shrunk purchasing power of majority of population that in lower status and caused long-term deflation. The market transition in China penetrated by the commoditization of power, though might have stimulated short-run economic growth, damages potential of economic development.

Abstract: It was in 2006 that the consumer credit law in Japan experienced the radical reform, triggered by a Supreme Court decision in January that year. The reform has been implemented in four step, the last step taking place as late as December 2009. In these very three years, the consumer law in general became the subject of public concern, because of the repeated accidents involving the consumer goods. Several law revisions took place, finally resulting in the creation of the new Consumer Agency. This paper compares the political and social backgrounds to these processes with those of the reform of the consumer credit law and considers whether the developments in the consumer law in general and the consumer credit law are linked and in parallel, or rather unrelated to each other.

Abstract: Many musicians are not trained in performance health so when an injury occurs, they are unsure of where to turn. Many are afraid of not being hired or of losing their jobs. This workshop/demonstration will give an introduction and overview of performance health, as it relates to the music educators that are with us as we begin our music training. When an injury is traced back, it often corresponds to bad habits that were picked up over the years. The vocalists and pianists have likely had more instruction on this subject than instrumentalists, especially those playing winds, brass and percussion. If the musicians and band directors that started everyone on their instruments had more knowledge about the body, and how it relates to the instruments, many of these performance-related injuries could be avoided. An understanding of how incorrect posture, hand position, and practicing effects the body would benefit all musicians. At least early recognition could occur, allowing for an intervention that could avoid long rehabilitation periods and possible permanent damage.

All musicians and educators can benefit from learning more about injuries, how to recognize them and management strategies. As a musician who is also trained as a nurse practitioner, I have dealt with injuries from a personal standpoint, as well as a health care provider. This puts me in a unique position, allowing me to understand both sides of the situation. Having the knowledge to explain the problem in the language of the musician allows me to educate as many as possible, to avoid anyone suffering needlessly. The audience will participate in exercises to promote health so they can see how it will benefit the musician at any level.
