The era of colonialism in India unfolds many dimensions of struggle by the natives and the attempts of travesty by the imperialist powers. This paper will focus on the two landmark legislation of the end of the 19<sup>th</sup> century specifically pertaining to the labour conditions in India. The changing paradigms of the urban and rural labour underwent a phenomenal change by the mid 19<sup>th</sup> century. The characteristic which distinguishes the modern period in world history from all past periods is the fact of economic growth. <em></em></p><p> </p></div><br clear="all" /><div><p class="Rule"> </p></div> 2019-03-14T14:31:09+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Social Sciences Review https://journals.epistemopolis.org/socialsciences/article/view/1601 The Dollar stability and the idea of a savior in Ecuador 2019-10-31T11:09:00+01:00 Cristian Paúl Naranjo Navas paulnaranjo@outlook.com Andrés David Naranjo Navas andynaranjob@hotmail.com Alegría Cumandá Navas Labanda cumita9@hotmail.com <p>Since the political decision of the establishment of the dollar in 2000, the benefits that came alongside could change based on the evolution of money supply. Public debt has become the main element that has been supporting its functionality. If public debt is not replaced by a massive income of dollars to the economy, Ecuador could experience a regression in many of the economic and social variables. At the same time, from 2007 to 2017, Ecuador lived a period in which a new understanding of society was built making use of an adaptive leftist speech that would see reality through the existence of the victim, the messiah and the victimizer.</p> 2019-03-15T11:38:02+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Social Sciences Review https://journals.epistemopolis.org/socialsciences/article/view/2088 The Development of Mobile Money and the Politics of Financial Inclusion in Tanzania 2019-10-31T11:09:00+01:00 Deogratius Joseph Mhella deogratius.mhella@bristol.ac.uk <div id="titleAndAbstract"><div id="titleAndAbstract">This paper analyses the development of mobile money in Tanzania and the politics of financial inclusion that enhanced it. Mobile money has played a significant part in reaching the financially unreached and excluded people overtaking banking and other financial services in Tanzania. There is no doubt that mobile money emerged at a time when financial exclusion was a major issue, and that the advent of mobile money was opposed by the banks who thought that it was entering the money business, and that the banks were in a better position to do money business better than any other institutions. For this reason, it is crucial to understand the development of mobile money and the politics of financial inclusion that allowed it to succeed. I have chosen the case study of Tanzania because not only that mobile money has thrived there, but also mobile money as we perceive it today was firstly invented by the e-Fulusi, a Tanzanian company, and failed before it was relaunched in Kenya by MPesa and succeeded. Moreover, the development of mobile money and the politics of financial inclusion have proven their importance in fighting financial exclusion and in increasing access to formal financial services for the poor, which is key to economic growth and poverty alleviation.</div></div> 2019-04-30T11:29:43+02:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Social Sciences Review https://journals.epistemopolis.org/socialsciences/article/view/1445 Variants applied to the Control Scheme in Mining Companies in Ínquira – Huila 2019-10-31T11:09:01+01:00 Magda Paola Tafur Charry m.paolatafur@gmail.com Angy Gaviria angy.gaviriab@campusucc.edu.co Marilyn Ortigoza mari_pao_9414@hotmail.com Lina Losada panda2803@hotmail.com Karen Lorena Vargas klorena07@hotmail.com <p>This research paper addresses the mining control regulatory scheme in Colombia, to set its implementation variants in order to conduct an analysis of its implementation in the companies that carry out mining activities in the municipality of Íquira (Huila), between 2008 and 2013.

More particularly, it looks at the play within the context of the politics of the early American republic to uncover how Rowson deploys the captivity of American sailors in Algiers (1785-1796) as a pretext to deconstrust the established gender power relations without hurting the sensibilities of her audience in its reference to the issue of black slavery. The research also unveils the many intertextual relationships that the play holds with the prevalent captivity culture of the day, sentimental literature, and more specifically with Cervantes’s <em>Don Quixote</em>.</p> 2019-10-31T11:08:35+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Social Sciences Review
