Dr. Mirek Karasek FRSS, NY. Acad. Sci.
While once coming up with a unique graphical mapping and solution to some cyclical diseases and was, in some medical circles, probably not very wisely, hailed as “the second best thing happened to psychiatry after Freud” Mirek Karasek settled down to more mundane modelling, optimizing and trying to find the solution to the current catastrophic free-fall of social, economic, and, above all, militantly charged religious political stratification systems in developing countries.
For these macro-models he invented a methodology that meshes behavioral and cardinal data into one, virtually error-free, quantitative data-base that maps the societies’ intra-heterogeneities as points on the hyperbolic curve where the Donors-Recipient system can be graphically assessed for its sustainability. As the algebraic proofs confirm, the ceteris paribus outcome, the”Doomsday Scenario” i.e. the world as we know it is likely to come to an end soon, unless conditions, spelled out in this book, are upheld.
In addition to publishing 5 books and 50+ articles in peer-reviewed journals, Dr. Karasek has either chaired or given invited lectures all over the world (inclusive of China) for 40+ years.
