Paris: Governments acting on climate change

A qualitative model that asks what it takes to take political action. Feel free to add to it.

For Paris: Why actions against climate change do not cost jobs

This model was meant to be a small model on the basic interconnections of actions against climate change and the main counter argument against them that they allegedly cost jobs. Feel free to add to it.

Systemic view on terror threats after Paris

Just the start of a small model on the basic interconnections behind the growing threat of terror. You may use the collaborative link to edit the model or provide a complete new model.

PiM: einfacher Supermarkt-Kassen-Prozess

Hier eine kleine Fingerübung für den einfachen Prozess der Supermarkt-Kasse. Derzeit kann nur an der Anzahl offener Kasse gedreht werden, um zu sehen, wie viele Kunden in der Schlange stehen. Leicht könnte das Modell erweitert werden, um die optimale Zahl offener Kassen im Tagesverlauf zu ermitteln oder die durchschnittliche Wartezeit je Kunde auszugeben. Ich belasse das Modell mal als Read-Only-Link an dieser Stelle, freue mich aber, wenn jemand das Modell importiert und selbst erweitert, um es vielleicht sogar kollaborativ auf KNOW-WHY.NET zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Ethical management (FIFA, Volkswagen, Food Industry, Banks, etc.)

A collaborative qualitative model that goes into more detail on the question how we as a society can get companies with more ethical behavior. A factor that pops up in the Volkswagen model by Emma:  but also when we think about FIFA or all the lobbyist's work from the oil industry (there is the BP memo from the eighties that described the strategy to prevent the information of the public on the likelihood of a climate change) or the nutrition industry  (that prevents that the food in the supermarket shelves is labeled with regard to their nutrition, fat and sugar value) and so forth.

Government spending - systemic sink or source

This little qualitative model just helps my argumentation in a discussion on a perspective from Gene Bellinger's Kumu project. Yet it is probably interesting for others as well as it features the major arguments from democrats and republicans, from libertarians and communitarians, from the liberals and social democrats .... and so forth

Elon Musk and Sigmar Gabriel on the future of Electric Mobility

A few weeks ago Elon Musk presented his mission to an audience and the German economy minister Sigmar Gabriel. Well, the moderation of that event was, let us say: not optimal, but the arguments Elon Musk presented were stunning. This model tries to capture them challenging the reply of Minister Gabriel. Here is a video of that event: 

Lock-In situation of the transition towards sustainability

Quintessential excerpt from the following project:

Feste Fehmarnbelt-Querung und die Lübecker Bucht

Dieses Modell zur gemeinsamen Modellierung ist noch nicht fertig. Insbesondere die Gewichtung, welche die Anzahl der betroffenen Anwohner östlich, westlich der A1 und direkt an der Küste berücksichtigt, fehlt noch. Gern helfe ich bei der weiteren Modellierung - einfach selbst über den kollaborativen Link probieren oder über einen Kommentar nach Hilfe fragen.

Refugees from different regions - a collaborative model

The aim of this model is to have a closer look at the root causes for the flow of refugees from specific countries and regions. Please add your arguments.
