Humanity is moving ever towards its final destination without knowing why, when, where: teloi, multiple paths, leading towards God’s eschaton. These essays examine the movement towards this day of reckoning, and how such eschatological events are projected back into time. Towards the Day after Tomorrow, or the one after that, or months, decades—centuries—away, often we behave as though the end is upon us. These essays start with the beginning of the end: the incarnation. We examine the origins of Karl Barth’s realized eschatology in Expressionism. We consider death and judgment, as usurped by humanity, an eschaton without God’s forgiving judgment: multiple Holocausts. War ushers in the eschaton, but how do Christians handle conflict in the light of a redefined just war theory? We analyze the eschatological insights into humanity’s end in The Simpsons—post mortem. Consider the issue of atheistic human authorities usurping God’s judgment. Finally crisis and judgment are glimpsed in the mindset of people who suffer seizures—postlapsarian exile, the sufferance of salvation: how God blesses us despite the chaos of our human-generated teloi, in preparation for the end. As the end approaches, events become darker, chaotic, confusion reigns: “Judas immediately went out. And it was night.”

Libya is highly dependent on exhaustible and volatile hydrocarbon resources, which constitute the bulk of government revenues. Although resource wealth provides the means to promote socio-economic development, procyclical fiscal policies threaten macroeconomic stability as well as fiscal sustainability and intergenerational equity. In three parts, this paper provides an assessment of the cyclically adjusted fiscal stance, analyzes fiscal sustainability according the permanent income framework, and simulates various fiscal policy rules with the objective of developing a rule-based fiscal strategy that would delink the economy from oil price fluctuations, improve the management of resource wealth, and safeguard macroeconomic stability.

Dr. Juergen Schrenk was born, raised and lived in Germany from 1945 to 1972, then again from 1979 to 1985. He resided and worked in the United States from 1972 to 1979, and from 1986 to present. In Germany, he lived in Bavaria (his favorite part of the country), Swabia and North Rhine-Westphalia, in the US in Massachusetts, Maryland, California (his present and favorite home), Illinois, Indiana and New Jersey (a close second). He has visited all other states of the union and some of its territories, and traveled extensively in more than 50 countries. He has used his time in these various locations not only to enjoy life (and it was enjoyable everywhere), but also to collect observations on how things could be even better. He loves the "Old Country's" quaint villages as much as the New World's wide-open spaces and considers himself lucky to have had the pleasure of experiencing both. He encountered many good people (and a few obnoxious ones) on both sides of the Atlantic and could never decide where he belongs. Which is not a bad problem to have.
