    1. This article is about use of data in historical research introduced by Peter Turchin. Drawing on data, he argues that history is determined by:

      • bloating elite class with less opportunities for more and more elite members (money, position, etc.); they create counter-elite. He did not mentione communism but most of communists were members of elite. He argues that Trump is member of elite - turned 'counter elite'.
      • declining living standard of the general population - here he comes to the argument of Paul Kennedy 'Rise and Decline of Great Powers': after some time elite cannot provide any more 'goodies' for general population, which starts revolting. Elite has to use force which drains resources and,
      • governments can't cover its financial positons and colapse starts as it happened many times in the history: Roman Empire, Napoleon, Soviet Union, ...).

      I like his use of 'proxies' in data analysis. A lot can be done in the current 'data science' by using proxies to determine societal developments.

    2. For medieval France, a proxy is the membership in its noble class, which became glutted with second and third sons who had no castles or manors to rule over. One American proxy, Turchin says, is the number of lawyers.

      Use of proxies in data science. We have to find more proxies when we do data research.

    1. ||MarcoLotti|| Let us enrich our 'language' with new concept of data catalog. We may start promoting 'data catalog' for International Geneva in the next phase of the Road to Bern project.

      Let us add this to 'lingo' which will be repeated more and more: Does Geneva has Data Catalog?
