Anreiz fuer higher education. // Germany NEEDS immigration - because of demographic bubble. Period. Either get people in Germany and the jobs of the Future. Or let the jobs go away to where the human capital and cognitive resources are. Period. // self-awareness of women is through the ranks lower compared to men. it comes from society, media, childhood, parenting. // thus lack of strong women. lack of Female Founders too. // Experiment showed:: Women react discouraged during competition with Men, but competition Woman-Woman shows no such signs of lack of wanting to compete. ... WHY!? Do we have to split-up schools again - All Girls Schools Only? Or Do we just have to change girls perception of the world early on!? //
