Pros and Cons of autonomous cars (self driving vehicles (SDV))

A collaborative, qualitative model on the various aspects of SDVs. Please join the modeling.

Quantitative Model on Universal Basic Income (Bedingungsloses Grundeinkommen)

Just the start of a collaborative quantitative model on universal basic income. Please join the modeling and discussion!There is also a qualitative model on this topic: https://www.know-why.net/model/CRgBaHBuMn45JGRW7wXAvfA  First scenarios: The economy is booming, yet inequality is rising. This model is still a rough model with just with groups an average low, medium and high income for Germany. The side effects of an universal basic income with some people deciding to work less and others to come up with new business ideas next to all the benefits for our society from people who choose unpaid caring activities are not activated and the effects from automation and digitization neither. So while without these ...»

Impact chains of climate change

Just a small qualitative model to scope the economical implications of climate change. Feel free to use it (you may import it into your account).

What does Trump becoming president of the USA now mean to the world?

just trying to grasp the situation - please join the modeling! While I started trying to show the high risks of catastrophe I now see also opportunities. See some first insights in the presenter (Menu ... Presenter) By the way: I predicted the development of the US elections, unfortunately : https://www.know-why.net/model/C-5GDe-XN0rMggChUtMLm8Q 

The automotive industry and the circular economy

Although I have modeled it before https://www.know-why.net/model/CJSlB5_tv2HWZZ93K7Q94Tw I got inspired by the Accenture article  https://www.accenture.com/t20160915T224958__w__/us-en/_acnmedia/PDF-27/Accenture-POV-CE-Automotive.pdf#zoom=50   to develop another model. Look at the presenter for some astonishing insight.

Amelie's CO2 Modell 2 (zum Gewinnen eines Fairphones)

während einer Gartenparty stellten ein paar Kinder zwischen 7 und 10 Jahren Fragen zu unserem Sampada Ofen, dem Veganersein, usw. Am Abend rückte ich dann mein Tablet raus und wir haben gemodelt. Amelie hat die Fragen gestellt und alle durften mal Faktoren anlegen. Die Kinder konnten hernach die meisten Zusammenhänge wiedergeben (möglicherweise zum Leidwesen einzelner Elternteile) PS: das Fairphone ginge dann an Amelie

Winning the Fairphone: a collaborative model on the development of house (real estate) prices

This is a collaborative qualitative model on the development of prices for real estate (houses, apartments etc.). While there is already a collaborative model on the development of stock markets (https://www.know-why.net/collab?id=CzSkr0IaGNcHWA9aGfE0Y-A) I would like to gain more insights on house prices as well. Background: while the population is shrinking we still see a boom in the construction of new houses. I thought that this was only because of low interests but experts told me a couple of demographic arguments I wasn't aware of. Let us see how we can cover this topic. So, please join the modeling. PS 1: Maybe we need to quantify different cohorts of our society and run a simulation model on this, but ...»

What have Trump, Putin, Erdogan, ISIS, etc. in common?

The question from the model's title is answered by the model as it shows causes to a world wide growing symptom.

Qualitative model on the UN's sustainable development goals (SDG)

Source: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/?menu=1300 This model is just a start. The next step would be to include the targets from the source above. Feel free to insert the model to your (free) iMODELER account to start a more detailed model !!! After that we should continue to use the 4 Know Why Questions in order to exploratively add hard and soft factors that help to explain what could serve as an effective lever to improve the situation in the world. Finally the model could be used to distinguish different regions in the world. Of course, the source already features a promising quantitative model just to do that. Yet, I'd rather like to have a more transparent open source model so in the future it wo ...»
