Mister Moneyman: our Treasurer Jeroen!

With this article, I want to show some of the tasks the treasurer of our study association has on a daily basis. The day starts in the early morning with checking mails like all the other board members. My mail looks a little different from the others. It mostly consists of invoices, which I need to pay. This can be for flyers for the promotion of our events or for the beers that we drank the evening before in Café the Philip. If I see an email containing an invoice, I always print the invoices right away and put them in my ‘need to be paid’ folder on my desk.

Vice-Chairman Desiré, tell us about your year!

After the blog articles of Renee as Chairman and Job as External Affairs Officer, it is my turn to shed some light on what I do as the Vice-Chairman of Asset | Economics.

My week as the Chairman of Asset | Economics

First of all, I would like to introduce myself. I am Renee Hekerman and currently, I am the chairman of Asset | Economics. In September, we were officially installed as board, but what are you doing as a chairman all day long? Because admit it, this position is the vaguest of all… So that’s a question I often get and therefore I would finally like to give you some insight in my week.

Are men now the weaker sex in society?

Recently, the Economist wrote an interesting article on changing social relations between men and women on the labor market. For centuries, societies were leaded, created and protected by men, while women took care of the household and raising the children. In the past century however, women justifiably fought for more rights and equality, because the traditional gender roles are no longer maintainable in today’s complex society. This resulted in a big growth of the labor force in many countries, giving western countries huge welfare increases. But today a new, slightly worrying, trend is taking place on the labor market.
