In 1994, John C. Harsanyi, John F. Nash and Reinhard Selten, won the Nobel Economics Prize for their pioneering analysis of equilibrium in the theory of noncooperative games. The Nash equilibrium is one of the results which can be reached in models of non-cooperative games, in which individual action of the various participants, generates a result that is lower than that achieved if each decided to cooperate by agreeing a particular behavior. These models were shown to have great applicability in reality. And in these times of crisis, we have witnessed several examples of actions that replicate their results. One of them has been observed over the past weekend and had as protagonists the Latin American Central Banks. In a match that was attended by central bankers from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Peru, it was agreed inter alia, avoid a devaluation war between them, agree to avoid sharp fluctuations in rates changes in these countries as has been observed in recent times, a product of international turbulence.

The reasons for the indebtedness of people vary widely, but point out the most important causes. Acquisition of goods and services: which are generally not obtainable with current income of individuals. This is called "leverage." Acquisition of financial assets: in Venezuela is very fashionable to buy debt bonds, so some banking institutions finance the purchase of such individuals and companies involved. Inability of being unable to bear the usual costs with revenues it receives: this is what we will call later negative net cash flow. In these cases, usually resort to using credit cards or personal loans. Emergencies: Accidents, illnesses, unexpected repairs on the house or vehicles can significantly alter the budget of many families driven into debt. Lack of control: some people, and without a false sense of purchasing power that gives credit cards, incur unnecessary debt. This is reflected regularly in high balances on credit cards.
Existence in the country of negative real interest rates: this means that banks offer interest rates for instruments of deposits, lower inflation, so people know intuitively you choose to purchase goods and services (first through money Cash and second through debt) in order to withstand the impacts of inflation. A reduction in lending rates of interest: Complementing the previous section, low interest rates on loans motivate and encourage people and businesses to borrow. Obtaining bank references: Some people apply for credit cards to have bank references for future contingencies, such as purchasing a home. It is well known that hardly a given bank loans for a significant amount of money if the person or company has no bank references, especially credit cards. Enforceability of tenure in Travel: In many hotels, car rental agencies, clinics, and others, it requires a credit card customer, so do not possess may bring inconvenience to the person when traveling or having an emergency.

Ethics and Civics are extinct materials in schools. It gives very little value on honesty, punctuality and cleanliness, and this education is the essential foundation for creating successful entrepreneurs. My Japanese friend told me of the four steps needed to be a successful entrepreneur: The Well Being: Honest, punctual and disciplined. For example, consider a enterprise of 400 employees. If each of these employees distracted 30 minutes of your time in activities outside their work, they are losing 12.000 minutes per day, 60,000 minutes per week, 240,000 minutes per month, equivalent to 4,000 hours of actual work.
The fundamental principle is respect. If not yours, you must be somebody. If you found this pen on a desk, must be someone, then return it. If you find a wallet, not yours, should be someone and if you're in a meeting with a lady, not yours, must be someone. If you're getting paid for working eight hours, this time is not yours, it's from someone who paid for them.
And if everyone would respect these concepts, the better. The Japanese businessman, told me that in his business, no drawer is locked, everything is on hand to everyone, but everyone knows what and who are becoming one of the things that are used in the office. How do we live in our countries?, Seeking to put keys to the drawer where we keep the keys. He told me how to recruit your people when you started your business. It gave him a $ 100 bill to a young man to buy her newspaper, she had to return $ 99, and many never returned, however, that they did, entering his company because he saw the future in them.

Some time ago it was very popular a saying: Saving is the basis of all wealth. Over time, a number of factors such as inflation, bad economic policies, the advent of easy credit through cards, among others, caused such a change in circumstances which made it seem like a wise saying that maximum obsolete. Throughout time, mankind is trying new things: new forms of governance, new technologies and lifestyles. In some cases, it has been necessary to recover and return some values to some sources and so, with regard to money, many people have realized that although the claim seems a good idea for any purchase and at all times, resulting in many problems if it lacks the means to pay in a timely manner. Many people who have learned this through the sad experiences that have happened in this field have come to the conclusion that you can not spend what you do not ALWAYS have, and that, after all, the principle of saving still life and always will as long as the money.
Although this trend is not massive yet, more and more individuals are canceling their debts and have become the concept that the interest in finance and administration are not good things to be learned when it comes time to have a fat sum in the bank.

To reach a fortune, it is necessary to see that while no one can choose to be born in a poor household or a rich, anyone can choose to manage well the money you have, or not. And decide what kind of life you want to live. Developing a budget is the first step for someone to take control of its economy: it is necessary to know exactly how much money is available.
The control of expenditure is the second essential step, and this would involve the cancellation of debts as soon as possible in order to start saving for a firm and that every penny in and not spent, is really his own. It is necessary to determine what income is spent on insurance, phone, mobile, medicine, and also provide all fixed and variable expenses like clothing or a walk. This step helps to deduce where the money goes each month. Once the way in which money is spent monthly, it is necessary to observe whether certain expenses can be trimmed. Is it possible to choose less expensive outlets? Is it possible to use less mobile if n is a great need? Do not miss a single day without meeting them, and take control of their household economy. These three steps constitute a solid base from which to build a small fortune, it is the basis of a larger fortune.
