  • A Fragile Hold on Consumption: Consumption and the New Middle Class in
           Colombia

    • Abstract: This paper explores consumption patterns, access to banking services, attitudes to government and aspirations of the growing and vulnerable middle class in the global South. Data comes from a population survey conducted in 2016 in Cali, Colombia. We compare middle income and lower income populations in order to establish differences and similarities. We aim to answer a basic question. What are the patterns of consumption for this new middle class and how does it compare with lower income groups' Generally speaking, we find that despite the marked differences in income levels the middle class and the poor population share similar goals and attitudes and inhabit the same urban realm.

  • Factors Affecting the Use of Shared Space and Environmental Facilities of
           Cibeureum Rental Social Housing, Indonesia

    • Abstract: Shared space and environmental facilities the primary supporting space for low-income residents identical to high social activities. However, in reality, some areas tend not used. This phenomenon indicates exist of other factors that influence its use. This study aims to define the factors that affect the use of shared space and environmental facilities at Cibeureum Rental Social Housing. This research uses the qualitative method by evaluating the use of space and explanation of its phenomenon with the qualitative explanation based on field theory and fact. Factors that affect the use of shared space and environmental facilities of the Cibeureum Rental Social Housing according to research conducted is suitability of the pattern of use of space residents as apply tradition settled and ability of its physical elements in accommodating activities. Users are still doing the action to meet the primary needs of people (clothing, food, and housing) and social events with special needs although space is far from occupancy, because simple social activities at a very close distance to the dwelling. Users are often doing optional activities such as relaxing and sitting are often performed in the nearest space to the dwelling. This research can develop the design of shared space and environmental facilities to consider the distance and type of activities based on suitability of occupant-based traditions of living.

  • A World in the Balance: The Economy Towards Recession

    • Abstract: The global economy is moving uncertainly towards recession. An economy in the balance that remains uncertain on the threshold of recession, relying on the benevolent contribution of support policies. Without the help of fiscal policy and the complacency of the Central Banks through new liquidity injections, and therefore through easy credit, it can certainly be admitted that the recession would tend to prevail. But the recession is not a bad thing in itself, it’s rather the treatment for the evil afflicting the economy: the growing instability of economic systems under the increasing weight of excessive liquidity and an abnormal increase of public and private debt. The result of this negative equation is the growth of the economy sustained by abundant liquidity and credit availability and then a weak and doped development. A development line that cannot go on without the resources of politics. The problem is therefore whether this dependency condition can last. That is, if the economy can find the virtuous energies to reabsorb the accumulated excesses through a sustainable growth. The compulsive use of fiscal policy to fight the damage caused by the serious 2008-2010 crisis has undoubtedly reduced the economic and above all social damage due to the loss of jobs, and therefore helped the recovery. However, the massive use of public debt could hide a dark side. First of all, it fueled a legacy of recessive prices and weak development. And this, despite the large river of liquidity injected into the system by the Central Banks. However, the availability of new liquidity did not defeat the tendency of the economy to deflation and then couldn’t support development, which appears generally weak. The US case, which sees the relaunch of development by the fiscal reform that reduces taxation particularly in favor of higher incomes, doesn’t seem to be an exception. However, we are facing economies that require the continuous support of political policies in order to confirm their (weak) growth. On the other hand, it’s quite clear the dark side created by the trap "liquidity - weak growth" now affecting the global development, although without this trick the world in the balance could fall into recession.

  • Eliminating Poverty Through Educational Approaches-The Indian Experience

    • Abstract: This empirical paper studies the different approaches of India in speeding-up education spectrum to eradicate poverty. The research focuses on means for transforming poverty education formula towards ‘Capacity vs Demand’ rather than ‘Supply vs Demand’ which would help to improve the quality of the education delivered to the poor with minimal resources.The research involves a thorough descriptive analysis of India’s poverty elimination schools, or its educational approach means, through using observation as a tool. The researcher reviews the current Indian approaches that could overcome the unique barriers of poor quality education. Six types of educational approaches are evaluated in relevance to their capacity to deliver ‘lifelong learning’, ‘learning by doing’, and ‘self-sufficiency’, besides the ‘assets of wealth’ of the poor. These variables are taken in relevance to the poverty areas where the educational setup are explored. The paper concludes with recommendation about the level of educational focus need to improve the quality of education outcome in relevance to poverty elimination.

  • Alienation and Emotion: Hegel Versus Sentimentalism and Romanticism

    • Abstract: The structuralist and social-psychological perspectives on alienation are described, with attention to Seeman’s contention that the experience of alienation is based more on sentiment than on reason. The passions in early modernity are described, and the eighteenth-century moral sentimentalists Hume, Smith, and Kant are discussed. Romanticism is described as the first self-critique of modernity, as it opposed Enlightenment science, rationalism, and uniformitarianism; it is linked to interiorized emotionality and to diversitarianism. Romantic concepts of alienation include inhibition of natural sexuality, oppressive condition of work, and the loss of an imagined Golden Age before human alienation. Hegel’s Phenomenology outlines a four-stage mode of the undoing of social domination which has a narrative structure consistent with romantic story-telling, but was grounded not in romanticism but in Gnosticism and Lutheran dialectics. Hegel’s critique of sentimentalism and romantism is explored, with Hegel emerging as a dedicated anti-romantic who condemned the sophistry of Schlegel and Novalis’s ‘beautiful soul’, arguing that the self, to be viable, cannot remain encapsulated in inner subjectivity but must rather engage in emotion-laden confrontation with self-willed others in the social world; this requires a positive kind of alienation of the self from itself. Romantic effort to keep the self in itself as protection from the corrupted and corrupting social world was misguided. Hegel was right in asserting that the self is necessarily both subjective and objective, both inner and outer, but wrong in his contention that the self can progress by resolving inner contradictions, for the self, as the core of our personality, rather progresses through incorporating and elaborating contradictions, ambiguities, and polysemantic meanings.

  • Understanding Bourdieu - Cultural Capital and Habitus

    • Abstract: This research paper aims at providing a brief and exemplified introduction of the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu’s two particularly important theoretical concepts: Cultural Capital and Habitus. Cultural capital, according to Bourdieu, is gained mainly through an individual’s initial learning, and is unconsciously influenced by the surroundings (Bourdieu, 2000). In the case of habitus, it relates to the resource of knowledge (Bourdieu 1990). Knowledge is about the way how people view and understand the world, which is gained via a specific culture that an individual lives in. While also showing how Bourdieu’s work on economic capital, social capital and cultural capital can help us to understand the contemporary world and its practices.

  • Recreating an American Myth: An Analytical Reading of Paul Bunyan by W. H.
           Auden and Benjamin Britten

    • Abstract: One of the ability which music possesses is to evoke the audience’s sense of cultural and national identity. In the second half of the twentieth century, people can easily travel and relocate to a new country in order to search for a better living condition. However, with this newly found freedom, people’s sense of belonging and cultural identity has been put into serious doubts and tests. W. H. Auden and Benjamin Britten’s Paul Bunyan encapsulates and foresees this phenomenon. Both have just arrived at the United States to escape from the war-torn Britain. Eager to find a voice to suit their new audience and symbolically swear allegiance to their newly adopted country, Auden and Britten employed an American founding myth in order to engage with their American patrons. Through a closed reading of Paul Bunyan, listeners will soon realize the inseparable notions between the musical presentation and its cultural identity. Furthermore, the story is told in the form of American musical theater, which is the artists’ ambitious attempt to capture the American optimism and spirit. This article intends to explore the notion of “myth narrative” in the genre of Music Theater; and how it reflects both the poet and the composers’ intention to obtain their sense of American identity.

  • Location, Pattern of Arrangement, and Physical Elements of Open Space in
           the Ifolia Cluster, Bekasi

    • Abstract: Each public open space of the housing cluster has different locations, arrangement patterns, and physical elements so that the social interactions between occupants that occur in each open space are different. Therefore, it is necessary to know how this open space affects social interactions that occur. The method used in the research is qualitative descriptive. Conduct surveys to figure the conditions that occur in the field. Then find the relationship between literature and field conditions related to open space and social interaction with users. From the results of the study, it is known that the place, structuring pattern, and physical elements of space are open to influence the social interaction of residential residents. However, from the user community, the physical element of an open space is the most influential to the social interaction of residents. Without the physical elements that encourage occupant activity, there will be no social activities and interactions in the open space.
