"My book Coercion was aimed at helping consumers gain some agency in a consumer-media arms race. My book Media Virus was really a celebration of the datasphere's new complexity. I was celebrating how it was now operating more like an organism than a system of control.

#DataMining Reveals a Global Link Between #Corruption and #Wealth | #dataviz

#DataMining Reveals a Global Link Between #Corruption and #Wealth | #dataviz | On Social Capitalism | Scoop.it
Social scientists have never understood why some countries are more corrupt than others. But the first study that links corruption with wealth could help change that.

 

One question that social scientists and economists have long puzzled over is how corruption arises in different cultures and why it is more prevalent in some countries than others. But it has always been difficult to find correlations between corruption and other measures of economic or social activity.

 

Michal Paulus and Ladislav Kristoufek at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, have for the first time found a correlation between the perception of corruption in different countries and their economic development.

 

The data they use comes from Transparency International, a nonprofit campaigning organisation based in Berlin, Germany, and which defines corruption as the misuse of public power for private benefit. Each year, this organization publishes a global list of countries ranked according to their perceived levels of corruption. The list is compiled using at least three sources of information but does not directly measure corruption, because of the difficulties in gathering such data.

 

Instead, it gathers information from a wide range of sources such as the African Development Bank and the Economist Intelligence Unit. But it also places significant weight on the opinions of experts who are asked to assess corruption levels.

 

The result is the Corruption Perceptions Index ranking countries between 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). In 2014, Denmark occupied of the top spot as the world’s least corrupt nation while Somalia and North Korea prop up the table in an unenviable tie for the most corrupt countries on the planet.

luiy's curator insight, June 7, 2014 6:39 PM

The penetration rate of geo-located tweets is dierent across European countries and does not show a clear relation to the GDP per capita of each country. There are several factors that can contribute to this diversity such as the facility of access or prices of the mobile data providers. In addition, generic cultural dierences when facing a delicate issue from the privacy perspective such as declaring the precise location in posted messages can be also present. One can then naturally wonder whether these dierences extend to other aspects of the use of Twitter or are constraint to geographical issues. One obvious question to explore is the structure of the social network formed by the interactions between users. We extract interaction networks by establishing the users as nodes and connecting a pair of them when they have interchanged a reply. Replies are specic messages in Twitter designed to answer the tweets of a particular user. It can be seen as a direct conversation between two users and as shown in [28] (and references therein) can be related to more intense social relations. A network per country was obtained by assigning to each user the country from which most of his or her geo-located tweets are posted.

It lets you construct networks (mathematical graphs) with a few clicks on a virtual canvas or load networks of various formats (GraphML, GraphViz, Adjacency, Pajek, UCINET, etc). Also, SocNetV enables you to modify the social networks, analyse their social and mathematical properties and apply visualization layouts for relevant presentation.

Furthermore, random networks (Erdos-Renyi, Watts-Strogatz, ring lattice, etc) and known social network datasets (i.e. Padgett's Florentine families) can be easily recreated. SocNetV also offers a built-in web crawler, allowing you to automatically create networks from links found in a given initial URL.

The application computes basic graph properties, such as density, diameter, geodesics and distances (geodesic lengths), connectedness, eccentricity, etc. It also calculates advanced structural measures for social network analysis such as centrality and prestige indices (i.e. closeness centrality, betweeness centrality, information centrality, power centrality, proximity and rank prestige), triad census, cliques, clustering coefficient, etc.

Mapping Systemic Risk: Critical Degree and Failures Distribution in Financial Networks

Mapping Systemic Risk: Critical Degree and Failures Distribution in Financial Networks | On Social Capitalism | Scoop.it
The financial crisis illustrated the need for a functional understanding of systemic risk in strongly interconnected financial structures. Dynamic processes on complex networks being intrinsically difficult to model analytically, most recent studies of this problem have relied on numerical simulations. Here we report analytical results in a network model of interbank lending based on directly relevant financial parameters, such as interest rates and leverage ratios. We obtain a closed-form formula for the “critical degree” (the number of creditors per bank below which an individual shock can propagate throughout the network), and relate failures distributions to network topologies, in particular scalefree ones. Our criterion for the onset of contagion turns out to be isomorphic to the condition for cooperation to evolve on graphs and social networks, as recently formulated in evolutionary game theory. This remarkable connection supports recent calls for a methodological rapprochement between finance and ecology.

Libor: The Spider Network

The Libor manipulation scandal has ensnared at least 17 financial institutions and 22 individuals in a wide-ranging investigation spanning 11 countries and four continents. So far, it has netted at least $5 billion in penalties, with more on the way. Below, we've taken the most complete list of allegedly involved parties, compiled by WSJ reporters and editors, and mapped an extensive web of 298 reported connections that reveals the depth of the alleged conspiracy. Connections do not represent allegations of wrongdoing. The Journal has attempted to contact every institution and individual mentioned in this graphic. Their comments, if any, are included.

How MIT Visualizes Supply Chain Risk | #SNA #predictive

How MIT Visualizes Supply Chain Risk | #SNA #predictive | On Social Capitalism | Scoop.it
MIT Supply Chain Management Director Bruce Arntzen discusses risk visualization and Sourcemap [Video]

 

How does a company keep tabs on thousands of suppliers? That’s the question Bruce Arntzen tried to answer when he started the Hi-Viz Research Project. As Executive Director of MIT’s Supply Chain Management Program, Arntzen works with corporations to find innovative solutions to supply chain problems. The idea for the Hi-Viz project came during a 2011 meeting of the Supply Chain Risk Leadership Council. A survey of attendees listed Supply Chain Visibility as the top concern. Why? With thousands of suppliers and sub-suppliers, it can be very time-consuming to find the weakest link in a supply chain. Arntzen’s solution: an automatic visualization of the end-to-end supply chain where the weakest links could be seen in real time. Watch his interview to learn how MIT and Sourcemap developed the first automated risk visualization [more details below the fold].

 

In 2015, the Hi-Viz project is partnering with actuarial data providers to provide predictive risk analytics. Sourcemap is making available inventory risk mapping as part of its enterprise software-as-a-service. Want to get involved? Learn more about the Hi-Viz project, or contact Sourcemap for a demo.

Hierarchy is dead! Long live Holacracy! ...Right?

Hierarchy is dead! Long live Holacracy! ...Right? | On Social Capitalism | Scoop.it

Why do so many articles on implementations of management-less companies being referred to as “eliminating hierarchy” mix that with Holacracy? Why would a company then need Holacracy?

 

Take the Zappos gets rid of managers example – read on because there’s no mentioning of eliminating hierarchy. They are implementing a holacracy for a clear Purpose: they attempt to prevent bureaucracy from infiltrating Zappos, while maintaining a start-up culture within what is now, a quite large organization. They attempt to build Resilience against bureaucracy. It is what they believe to be needed to maintain a start-up culture.

The ideas we have developed and used for at least 4 decades are gradually becoming incorporated into how we think of organizations on a more regular basis

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 7, 2014 6:18 AM

The article challenges the assumption that holocracy eliminates hierarchies. From the piece: 

 

"Holacracy claims to ....change  the concept of organizational structure from one that is autocratic and top-down to one that is decentralized, organic, and bottom-up. Ultimately, the vision of Holacracy is to allow the emergent, creative properties of the individuals playing roles within an organization to self-organize and flourish, much like human cells are organized into organs, which in turn are organized into bodies and minds, which in turn go forth into the world to express their purpose as humans."

"Science has proven that human beings are not selfish by nature. Recent research in a range of scientific disciplines, such as evolutionary biology, psychology, sociology and experimental economics, have all demonstrated that human beings are not as selfish as we thought. According to the research just 30% of all humans act selfishly by nature, while 20% are unpredictable and the remaining 50% tend to prefer cooperation, although not unconditionally."

 

How can companies and citizens capitalize on this a propensity for cooperation?
