Inadequate product innovation is source of low penetration
Insufficient product innovation targeting the small scale consumer is partly to blame for the relatively low insurance penetration levels. According to a report by Cytonn Investments, the industry has a lot of unrealised potential in leveraging on unique insurance products that will fetch new revenue streams for the sector. The report also looked at regulation of the sector where it noted that the launch of the Financial Sector Authority will aid in information sharing amongst firms and also consolidation of insurance companies as they strive to meet minimum capital requirements. The investment company ranked Kenya Re as the top insurer in governance, profitability and efficiency followed by Jubilee holdings. Cytonn says Liberty Holdings was the most improved in these parameters.

Why do many businesses fail
Business failure refers to a company ceasing operations following its inability to make a profit or to bring in enough revenue to cover its expenses. A profitable business can fail if it does not generate adequate cash flow to meet expenses.[1] Reasons Businesses can fail as a result of wars, recessions, high taxation, high interest rates, excessive regulations, poor management decisions, insufficient marketing, inability to compete with other similar businesses, or a lack of interest from the public in the business's offerings. Some businesses may choose to shut down prior to an expected failure. Others may continue to operate until they are forced out by a court order. The Small Business Administration, in an article on small business failure,[2] lists additional reasons for failure from Michael Ames book on "Small Business Management": lack of experience Un-trusted sales representative insufficient capital poor inventory management over-investment in fixed assets business's finance mismanagement poor business location poor credit arrangement management unexpected growth[clarification needed] engaging in the wrong business niche inability to recover from a major business interruption [3] A study published in 2014 by the Turnaround Management Society assesses that most business crises are caused by the mistakes of upper management. The most frequent causes of a crisis are that the management continued with a strategy that was no longer working for the company (54.6%), and that they lost touch with the market and their customers and did not want to adapt to changes occurring around them (51.6%). Having a clear strategy that is communicated well to all operational areas, one that uses and builds USPs,[definition needed] is desirable for every company but is often not the case. Incorrect strategic decisions (39.4%) are often made because of the lack of a clear strategy, and they can have a significant impact on a company’s financial position in the market. [4] There are many opinions about the most important reason that businesses fail: Peter Drucker claimed the most important reason that businesses fail is because management didn't ask "what is our business?" in a "clear and sharp form."[5] Eric T. Wagner, who has 30 years experience as a serial entrepreneur, says that entrepreneurs fail when developing new products because they "retreat to a cave" instead of thoroughly understanding their customers' needs. A survey of more than 1000 Australian SME business owners found that business failure was most likely because of an inability to manage costs.[6] Dr. Christoph Lymbersky analysed internal causes over a timeline of 38 years which shows that the lack of financial control is becoming less and less relevant as a crisis factor. In 1984 inadequate financial control still contributed to 75 percent of all corporate crises. In his 2014 survey, only 36 percent or restructuring consultants reported inadequate financial control to be a cause of decline. [7] According to a study by Industry Canada, "the main reason for (business) failure is inexperienced management. Managers of bankrupt firms do not have the experience, knowledge, or vision to run their businesses".[8] M. Victor Janulaitis surveyed 278 organization in 2018 on why disaster recovery and business continuity plans fail and found that after 12 months 51% of small to mid-sized business were not able to re-open their doors. [9] After Closing After closing a business may be dissolved and have its assets redistributed after filing articles of dissolution. A business that operates multiple locations may continue to operate, but close some of its locations that are under-performing, or in the case of a manufacturer, cease production of some of its products that are not selling well. Some failing companies are purchased by a new owner who may be able to run the company better, and some are merged with another company that will then take over its operations. Some businesses save themselves through bankruptcy or bankruptcy protection, thereby allowing themselves to restructure. There are several consequences towards the owners/shareholders, such as limited liability, the finance and the continuity (if a shareholder does not want to continue in the business). ____________________________________________________ Concerning the music: Far Away by Declan DP https://soundcloud.com/declandp Licensing Agreement 2.0 (READ) http://www.declandp.info/music-licensing Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/iTSpmnHMVS4

Basel III -  Detailed Analysis and Effect on Gold and Silver
https://www.illuminatisilver.com https://www.illuminatisilver.com/sign-up-today/ Basel 3 - General Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6fLy1vU3_o Basel 3 - Supervision 2017 PDF: https://tinyurl.com/basel3supervision Basel 3 - Supervision 2018 PDF https://tinyurl.com/basel3-2018 Today is Monday 25th March 2019 and we are discussing Basel III and its potential impact on gold and silver. Yesterday we produced a video on this subject to all members (link below this video) but for inner sanctum members we are going a little deeper. So, what is Basel III? Well let’s address who is responsible for it. Basel by its name is a prominent city in Switzerland. Here sits the Headquarters of The Bank for International Settlements. It was founded in 1930 out of the Hague Agreements of that year and took over the role of the Agent General for repatriation in Berlin. Today its role has changed and is highlighted on its website as being “to serve central banks in their pursuit of monetary and financial stability, to foster international cooperation in those areas and to act as a bank for central banks.” Despite what we heard from one channel purporting to know about these things it is not owned by the Rothschilds but by 60 Central Banks representing countries around the world and jointly account for approximately 95% of GDP – so very influential indeed. With regard to banking activities, their customers are central banks and international organisations. They do not accept deposits from, or provide financial services to, private individuals or corporate entities. Basel I II and III are the products from the Basel Committee - initially named the Committee on Banking Regulations and Supervisory Practices – which was established by the Central Bank Governors of the Group of Ten countries at the end of 1974 in the aftermath of serious disturbances in international currency and banking markets (notably the failure of Bankhaus Herstatt in West Germany). Since its inception, the Basel Committee has expanded its membership from the G10 to 45 institutions from 28 jurisdictions. At the outset, one important aim of the Committee's work was to close gaps in international supervisory coverage so that (i) no banking establishment would escape supervision; and (ii) supervision would be adequate and consistent across member jurisdictions. Basel III came about as the Committee’s response to the 2007-09 Financial Crisis. According to the BIS website: ‘Even before Lehman Brothers collapsed in September 2008, the need for a fundamental strengthening of the Basel II framework had become apparent. The banking sector entered the financial crisis with too much leverage and inadequate liquidity buffers. These weaknesses were accompanied by poor governance and risk management, as well as inappropriate incentive structures. The dangerous combination of these factors was demonstrated by the mispricing of credit and liquidity risks, and excess credit growth.’ Now all of the fuss that has been generated recently has been the result of Gold historically being classified as a Tier 3 asset; when determining how much money a bank can loan, (as a bank’s capital or reserve requirement is taken into account in this assessment) the bank's gold holdings have traditionally been discounted 50 percent of the current market value. Its movement under Basel III from a Tier 3 category to a Tier 1 category means that the 50% valuation reduction is removed and so gold is accounted for at full current price and this takes effect from 31st March 2019. This has prompted Gold Bugs to declare that banks will now rush out and buy gold thereby causing its price to rise dramatically. Well first of all, we have to take into account the fact that Basel III and its impact on gold has been known for some time and frankly, Banks, if they were going to buy it will have already been doing so and so this immediate rush on 31st march is unlikely. With regard to silver, which is not mentioned or covered in these regulations because as we have often said, it is not regarded as a primary monetary metal by banks it is however regarded as a secondary monetary metal by individual investors and some States in the US and certain smaller countries around the world. So any impact on the price of gold that Basel III may have – either positive or negative will in fact be reflected by the price of silver by association – as it is often termed ‘poor man’s gold’. So our conclusion – yes positive directly for gold certainly longer term and for silver because of its association. However we caution our Inner Sanctum members to be aware of the possibility that Basel III could have a detrimental affect on holding gold, though on balance our assessment is that any bank selling, if it does happen, will be outweighed to some extent by private investor purchases which is why we neither see a dramatic rise nor a dramatic fall in the price of the precious metal.

How To Do Pig Farming ?
Pigs are kept for the production of pork and bacon. Most breeds, if properly managed and fed are capable of producing either pork or bacon. Small-scale pig farmers in the rural areas have largely sustained the Industry. These producers keep on average 2-5 pigs under very poor hygienic and management conditions. There are just a few commercial pig farmers in the country. Unlike the dairy and beef industries, the pig farming industry has largely been unable to attract any foreign and internal investment. This has been exacerbated by the high costs of inputs especially in intensive pig production. The major constraints to pig farming include; diseases and parasites, poor breeding, capital investment, inadequate advisory services, inadequate research, lack of organized marketing, lack of processing plants and poor product quality.

What is PUBLIC CAPITAL? What does PUBLIC CAPITAL mean? PUBLIC CAPITAL meaning & explanation
What is PUBLIC CAPITAL? What does PUBLIC CAPITAL mean? PUBLIC CAPITAL meaning - PUBLIC CAPITAL definition - PUBLIC CAPITAL explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Public capital is the aggregate body of government-owned assets that are used as the means for private productivity. Such assets span a wide range including: large components such as highways, airports, roads, transit systems, and railways; local, municipal components such as public education, public hospitals, police and fire protection, prisons, and courts; and critical components including water and sewer systems, public electric and gas utilities, and telecommunications. Often, public capital is defined as government outlay, in terms of money, and as physical stock, in terms of infrastructure. In 1988, the U.S. infrastructure system including all public and private non-residential capital stock was valued at $7 trillion, an immense portfolio to operate and manage. And according to the Congressional Budget Office, in 2004 the U.S. invested $400 billion in infrastructure capital across federal, state, and local levels including the private sectors on transportation networks, schools, highways, water systems, energy, and telecommunications services. While public spending on infrastructure grew by 1.7% annually between 1956 and 2004, it has remained constant as a share of GDP since early 1980s. Despite the value and investment of public capital, growing delays in air and surface transportation, aging electric grid, an untapped renewable energy sector, and inadequate school facilities all have justified additional funding in public capital investment. The American Society of Civil Engineers have continued to give low marks, averaging a D grade, for the nation’s infrastructure since its inception of the Report Card in 1998. In 2009, each category of infrastructure varied from C+ to D- grades with an estimated $2.2 trillion of needed public capital investment. The aviation sector remains mired in continued delays in the reauthorization of federal programs and an outdated air traffic control system. One in four rural bridges and one in three urban bridges are structurally deficient. States are understaffed and underfunded to conduct safety inspections of dams. Texas alone has only seven engineers and an annual budget of $435,000 to oversee more than 7,400 dams. Electricity demand outpaces energy supply transmission and generation. Almost half of the water locks maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are functionally obsolete. Drinking water faces an annual shortfall of $11 billion to manage their aging facilities and comply with federal regulations. Leaking pipes lose an estimated 7 billion US gallons (26,000,000 m3) of clean drinking water a day. Under tight budgets, national, state, and local parks suffer neglect. Without adequate funding, rail cannot meet future freight tonnage load. Schools require a staggering $127 billion to bring facilities to decent operating condition. Billions of gallons of untreated sewage continue to be discharged into U.S.’s surface waters each year. One of the most classic macroeconomic inquiries is the effect of public capital investment on economic growth. While many analysts debate the magnitude, evidence has shown a statistically significant positive relationship between infrastructure investment and economic performance. U.S. Federal Reserve economist David Alan Aschauer asserted an increase of the public capital stock by 1% would result in an increase of the total factor productivity by 0.4%. Aschauer argues that the golden age of the 1950s and 1960s were partly due to the post-World War II substantial investment in core infrastructure (highways, mass transit, airports, water systems, electric/gas facilities). Conversely, the drop of U.S. productivity growth in the 1970s and 1980s was in response to the decrease of continual public capital investment and not the decline of technological innovation.

Dudley - Basel and the Wider Financial Stability Agenda
Remarks by William C. Dudley, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Federal Reserve Bank of New York at the 2010 Institute of International Finance Annual Membership Meeting in Washington D.C. on October 10, 2010 Over the past year, important new regulatory initiatives have been advanced both at the national and international level. These include the recent agreement in Basel on stronger capital and liquidity standards for internationally active banks and the considerable regulatory changes embodied in the Dodd-Frank Act (DFA). Today I want to discuss some of these initiatives, with a special focus on the recent agreement in Basel on capital and liquidity for large, internationally active banks. I will give my perspective on how these efforts have been informed by the lessons of the financial crisis and discuss what some of the likely consequences may be as these measures are put in place. Given the breadth of the changes, my remarks will be by no means complete. As always, my remarks reflect my own views and not necessarily those of the Federal Reserve System. The biggest lesson of the financial crisis is that severe financial disruptions can inflict very large and persistent costs on real economic activity and employment. Thus, lawmakers and regulators must make widespread changes to create a more resilient and robust global financial system. But, at the same time, this must be done in way that ensures the financial system retains sufficient dynamism so that it can allocate capital efficiently to support innovation and economic growth. The crisis revealed a number of significant weaknesses in the global financial system. First, many leading financial institutions at the core of the system did not have enough high-quality capital to be able to retain access to private funding markets in the face of the large credit and mark-to-market losses. In particular, they often held grossly inadequate capital against their trading book exposures and the counterparty credit risk generated by activities such as their over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives business. Second, individual firms and the system as a whole had inadequate liquidity buffers to withstand marketwide disruptions. Indeed, there was widespread overreliance on short-term funding to finance long-term illiquid assets. This was especially evident among the major securities dealers, which depended on tri-party repo funding to finance much of their securities inventories, and in the so-called shadow banking system, in which entities such as structured investment vehicles and conduits were dependent on short-term funding to finance their long-term assets. Banks that had provided liquidity guarantees to these shadow banks were in turn exposed to runs on those entities. Third, a lack of transparency exacerbated uncertainty about the creditworthiness of many institutions. Some of this was due to the complexity of the assets—collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), in particular, were very hard to value even in normal times. But, some of this was also due to the lack of transparency about certain markets—the OTC derivatives market for credit default swaps is one notable example. Fourth, an inappropriate structure of incentives encouraged excessive risk-taking. This was evident within firms in the form of "the trader's option," in which compensation was based mainly on fiscal year results with no clawback when mark-to-market profits on illiquid securities and other assets turned into losses. It was also evident in the ability of the largest firms to benefit in terms of their funding costs via a perception that they would be "too big to fail." Fifth, regulators and market participants did not appreciate how the financial system was interconnected so that shocks were transmitted broadly through the financial system, often intensifying rather than dampening as they spread. The severe economic costs generated by the crisis indicate that the primary goal must be to reduce the likelihood and the severity of future financial crises. To accomplish this, we need a financial system that is better suited to withstand shocks of all kinds, regardless of their source. ...

Operational Risk Management in Financial Services
Operational risk can have a crippling effect on a company if not managed properly. This is especially true in the financial services industry. Banks and investment firms must pay close attention to variables that have the potential to impact their operations, not only from the breakdown of technology and processes, but also from a personnel perspective. The responsibility of managing one's money is great, and the inability to properly anticipate and manage potential risk factors can have a devastating effect, all the way up to the industry level. A case in point was the subprime mortgage crisis of the late 2000s, which led to a nationwide economic recession. Mike Pinedo, the Julius Schlesinger Professor of Operations Management at New York University's Stern School of Business, is an expert in risk management research, particularly in the context of the financial services industry. In his presentation at The Boeing Center's 13th annual Meir Rosenblatt Memorial Lecture, he described the main types of primary risks in a financial services company: market risk, credit risk, and operational risk. Ops risk, which is the risk of a loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people, or external events, may be the most important factor, he claimed. _________________________________________________________________________________________ For access to exclusive digital content, events, cutting-edge research, and professional training, download our mobile app → https://bit.ly/bcsci-app

Canberra's Light Rail Emergency Response is inadequate
Canberra's light rail will start taking passengers on 20 April, but the Emergency Services Agency's plans for incidents are not up to scratch. The delivery of training to firefighters has barely commenced. Specialist lifting equipment is based in Fyshwick, and will be transported at road speed when required. This means that it could take over 45 minutes for specialist equipment to arrive and free a trapped person. There is a "golden hour" in rescue situations: the period of time following a traumatic injury during in which there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical and surgical treatment will prevent death. A small increase to fire and rescue crewing will ensure that emergency response has the best chance to save lives.
Warren Buffett's 1978 Letter to Berkshire Shareholders - Animated
1978 was a good year for the insurance business, Illinois National Bank and Berkshire as a whole. The textile business needs to turn down the suck though. 00:05 – Welcome falling prices 01:48 – How to treat capital gains when calculating return on capital 02:22 – Berkshire had a good year 02:37 – The textile business 03:56 – The insurance business 04:47 – The Illinois National Bank Choice Quotes “While we believe it is improper to include capital gains or losses in evaluating the performance of a single year, they are an important component of the longer term record. Because of such gains, Berkshire’s long-term growth in equity per share has been greater than would be indicated by compounding the returns from operating earnings that we have reported annually” “The textile industry illustrates in textbook style how producers of relatively undifferentiated goods in capital intensive businesses must earn inadequate returns except under conditions of tight supply or real shortage. As long as excess productive capacity exists, prices tend to reflect direct operating costs rather than capital employed. Such a supply-excess condition appears likely to prevail most of the time in the textile industry, and our expectations are for profits of relatively modest amounts in relation to capital” I’ll never be able to do the full letter justice.

Using Capital Accumulation to Pick the Right Investment
Internal Rate of Return analysis is the most commonly used method for investment selection and performance measurement. It measures the expected return from an investment over a specific holding period. Another way to put it is that IRR measures the yield on each dollar invested for as long as it remains in an investment. This is an important distinction because it underlies the limitations associated with using IRR to compare investment alternatives. The Capital Accumulation Process mitigates the limitations associated with IRR and thus provides a more comprehensive analysis to choose between investment alternatives. The process has 4 steps: Adjust each investment alternative to eliminate all negative cash flows. Reinvest all positive cash flows to the end of the holding period using an appropriate discount/reinvestment rate. Adjust between the investment alternatives for any size disparity between the initial investment amounts. Adjust for any time disparity between the holding periods using an appropriate discount/reinvestment rate. There are times when IRR is inadequate to identify the preferred investment alternative; making it necessary to use the capital accumulation process. This method distinguishes between multiple investment alternatives to show which leads to greater capital accumulation at the end of the holding period and is thus the superior investment.

Investment in training is an integral part of any capital investment program—these are “complementary” investment goods required to choose, implement, and operate the infrastructure of the future. 2. The kinds of investments required to modernize developing countries’ (and even the U.S.’s) infrastructure will be highly sophisticated, high technology driven. Designing the systems, choosing the new technology, implementing it, installing, operating, and maintaining it—all these will require high levels of human capital and therefore the training to produce it. 3. The first level of training required is of decision makers, who will design the most effective long-term solutions for nations’ inadequate and complex transportation systems and how to choose the most appropriate, most cost-effective physical capital to modernize the systems. 4. The second level of training required is for the highly-trained engineers needed to work with the decision makers to implement optimally the technologically advanced physical capital. 5. The third level of training required is for the technicians who will install, operate, and maintain the technologically advanced physical capital.

Unemployment - Main Causes of Unemployment | Vegabond Bloggers
Unemployment is one of the most prolong disease available in India. According to center of monitoring Indian economy, almost 31 million youth today is jobless or unemployed and almost 70% of employed youth is earning less than 10 thousand a month. The following are the main causes of unemployment: Slow economic growth: Indian economy is underdeveloped. This slow growth fails to provide enough unemployment opportunities to the increasing population. Increase in Population: Constant increase in population has been a big problem in India. It is one of the main causes of unemployment. The rate of unemployment is 11.1% in 10th Plan. Agriculture: Agriculture is underdeveloped in India. Large part of population is dependent on agriculture. But agriculture being seasonal provides work for a few months. So this gives rise to unemployment. Slow Growth of Industrialization: The rate of industrial growth is slow. Though emphasis is laid on industrialization yet the avenues of employment created by industrialization are very few. Less Savings and Investment: There is inadequate capital in India. Above all, this capital has been judiciously invested. Investment depends on savings. Savings are inadequate. Due to shortage of savings and investment, opportunities of employment have not been created. Planning defect: There is wide gap between supply and demand for labour. No Plan had formulated any long term scheme for removal of unemployment. Immobility of labour: Due to attachment to the family, people do not go to far off areas for jobs. Factors like language, religion, and climate are also responsible for low mobility.

Transforming cities with technology | The Economist
Cities are growing faster than at any time in history, straining services and infrastructure. Technology-driven advances are at the forefront of solving this age-old problem Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 By 2050, two thirds of the world’s population will live in cities. Urbanisation is happening faster than at any time in human history. Globally, 900 million people are living in slums. Cities can’t add housing fast enough. Today, an estimated one billion vehicles are already bringing urban areas to a standstill. Cities consume three-quarters of the world’s energy each year and are responsible for around 50% of greenhouse gas emissions. These are challenges our cities have been facing for decades. But now some city leaders, businesses, and even citizens, are taking new approaches to tackling these old problems. They’re transforming their cities with technology. In Seoul, the use of data is seen as the key to tackling some of the big challenges of city life - like moving its people around. City workers here use sophisticated technology to understand and transform how the city - and its metro - can be run. The subway system transports 7 million people every day. It’s widely regarded as one of the best in the world. And the entire network from wheels to workers is driven by data. The speed and frequency of the trains can be constantly adjusted to keep everything running smoothly. “Smart” cameras measure how many passengers are boarding - and how quickly and sensors on the trains and tracks monitor every last component to provide early warnings when maintenance is required and prevent a costly breakdown. They use smartphone apps, social media and the web to give citizens real-time alerts and alternative routes - and keep this megacity running smoothly. Transport is just the start. Seoul’s city planners are using data to better understand more of the big challenges this fast-growing city faces, from air pollution to affordable housing. There are an estimated 30,000 start-ups in South Korea - many of which are offering innovative solutions to challenges like the city’s housing shortages. One company uses this open-source data to pair up young people looking for accommodation with older citizens who have rooms to spare. It’s a tiny offshoot of an industry that is growing rapidly in cities across the world. By 2020, this so-called “smart city” industry will be worth an estimated $1.5 trillion dollars. There’ll be investment in everything from networks and sensors to new apps and services, from the world’s biggest technology firms, to innovative new startups working from someone’s front room. This is the headquarters of FLARE, a start-up based in Kenya. Its young entrepreneurs are working with real-time data sourced from that most ubiquitous of modern innovations: the smartphone. Kenya’s capital, Nairobi is emerging as a vibrant tech hub. It is also one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Home to 4.2 million people, it’s more than doubled its population in the last 20 years. As in many cities in developing countries the ageing, inadequate infrastructure is struggling to cope. The problem isn't a shortage of ambulances - Nairobi has 150 of them - double the number needed in an average city. But the city has no centralized emergency service to coordinate them. Residents here are faced with 50 different numbers to call for help - and no guarantee when - or whether - their ambulance will arrive. The app aims to do the job of a centralized emergency service, compiling real-time data to coordinate and connect patients in need, available ambulances and the right hospitals or healthcare providers. Across the developing world, innovators are increasingly exploiting existing technology to help citizens cope with their cities’ overstretched infrastructure. In America, innovators are also looking ahead to the next wave - anticipating data-driven technologies that could help predict problems before they even happen. Boston, Massachusetts, is the 10th largest metropolitan area in America. It’s home to 4.8 million residents. And while Boston may be one of the oldest urban settlements in this country it’s fast developing world leading technology that could help shape the cities of the future. This is the mission of MIT’s Senseable City Lab - to anticipate the impact of technology on urban life and use it to transform the way cities are run.

Business Opportunities in Vietnam - Cơ hội kinh doanh tại Việt Nam
www.stalker.vn - Natural Ground Roasted Coffee - Cà phê rang xay nguyên chất Vietnam's economic freedom score is 51, making its economy the 140th freest in the 2013 Index. Its score is 0.3 point worse than last year, with declines in monetary freedom, labor freedom, and trade freedom overshadowing improvements in control of government spending, business freedom, and freedom from corruption. Vietnam is ranked 30th out of 41 countries in the Asia--Pacific region, and its overall score is lower than the world and regional averages. The Vietnamese economy has weathered the global economic downturn relatively well. Capitalizing on its measured integration into the global trade and investment system, the country has slowly been transforming itself into a more market-oriented economy. Reforms include partial privatization of state-owned enterprises, modernization of the trade regime, and increasing recognition of private property rights. The rule of law remains an issue, a remnant of decades of Communism. The court system is inefficient, and the protection of intellectual property has been a major area of contention in international trade negotiations. A lack of democratic governance and accountability continues to perpetuate systemic corruption. BACKGROUND The Socialist Republic of Vietnam continues to experience political repression and a lack of respect for basic human rights. Economic liberalization began in 1986 with its doi moi reforms, and Vietnam joined the World Trade Organization in 2007. In April 2012, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung affirmed his commitment to reforming the state sector, pushing for partial privatizations after support for state-owned enterprises largely backfired. The government is slowly liberalizing key economic sectors, including financial institutions, and is part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade negotiations. Vietnam's fast-growing economy is driven primarily by tourism and exports, but inflation is a problem, and the country has struggled to attract more investment in the absence of a transparent legal and regulatory system. RULE OF LAWVIEW METHODOLOGY Property Rights 15.0 Create a Graph using this measurement Freedom From Corruption 29.0 Create a Graph using this measurement The judicial system is not independent and lacks efficiency. Private property rights are not strongly respected, and resolution of disputes can take years. Infringement of intellectual property rights is common. Corruption is due in large part to a lack of transparency and media freedom, but systems for holding officials accountable for their actions are inadequate as well. Many companies report having to pay bribes for customs clearances. LIMITED GOVERNMENTVIEW METHODOLOGY Government Spending 72.4 Create a Graph using this measurement Fiscal Freedom 75.6 Create a Graph using this measurement The top income tax rate is 35 percent, and the top corporate tax rate is 25 percent. Other taxes include a value-added tax (VAT) and a property tax. The overall tax burden equals 24.3 percent of total domestic income. Government spending is equivalent to 30.3 percent of GDP. Deficits have been persistently high, but public debt has remained at around 38 percent of GDP. A huge stimulus package in 2009 has threatened fiscal health. REGULATORY EFFICIENCYVIEW METHODOLOGY Business Freedom 63.8 Create a Graph using this measurement Labor Freedom 65.5 Create a Graph using this measurement Monetary Freedom 65.3 Create a Graph using this measurement Despite ongoing reform efforts, the overall regulatory framework lacks efficiency. Although no minimum capital is required, starting a business still takes more than the world average of 30 days and seven procedures. Completing licensing requirements still takes more than 100 days. The labor market remains dominated by the public sector, but there is considerable informal labor activity. Inflation has spiked, damaging monetary stability. OPEN MARKETSVIEW METHODOLOGY Trade Freedom 78.6 Create a Graph using this measurement Investment Freedom 15.0 Create a Graph using this measurement Financial Freedom 30.0 Create a Graph using this measurement The trade-weighted average tariff rate is 5.7 percent, with some additional non-tariff barriers limiting more dynamic gains from trade. Despite a desire to attract more foreign investment, the investment regime lacks efficiency, and flows are severely hampered by various restrictions. The financial sector continues to expand, with capital markets evolving. Directed lending by state-owned commercial banks has been scaled back in recent years.

Fabrice Taylor: How Aphria Got "Lazy and Dumb"
Fabrice Taylor, founder and publisher of the President's Club Investment Letter, was an early investor in Aphria (TSX:APHA;NYSE:APHA). In June of 2017, the Capital Ideas contributor flagged "suspicious" investments by the company that he thought were "weird", "baffling", and reflected poorly on management. Fast forward to our recent live stream, the day Aphria CEO Vic Neufeld stepped down, Fabrice explains why he thinks the company got "lazy and dumb.
Future Proofing Training Programs & the Economics of Education
From the October 6th, 2017 Workforce & Learning Pathways In A Period Of Dynamic Change Conference; Martin Carnoy, Vida Jacks Professor of Education, Stanford Graduate School of Education examines... 1. Investment in training is an integral part of any capital investment program—these are “complementary” investment goods required to choose, implement, and operate the infrastructure of the future. 2. The kinds of investments required to modernize developing countries’ (and even the U.S.’s) infrastructure will be highly sophisticated, high technology driven. Designing the systems, choosing the new technology, implementing it, installing, operating, and maintaining it—all these will require high levels of human capital and therefore the training to produce it. 3. The first level of training required is of decision makers, who will design the most effective long-term solutions for nations’ inadequate and complex transportation systems and how to choose the most appropriate, most cost-effective physical capital to modernize the systems. 4. The second level of training required is for the highly-trained engineers needed to work with the decision makers to implement optimally the technologically advanced physical capital. 5. The third level of training required is for the technicians who will install, operate, and maintain the technologically advanced physical capital.

Deutsche Bank CEO: Q4 earnings 'inadequate' but says bank on track to strengthen finances
Deutsche Bank's co-CEO said on Wednesday the bank's fourth-quarter earnings were "inadequate", but said that the bank was on track to strengthen its finances for the long term. Germany's biggest bank had a surprise loss of 965 million euros (1.32 billion (b) US dollars) in the fourth quarter, as earnings were burdened by 528 million euros (721 million (m) US dollars) in costs for court settlements and investigations into alleged past misconduct in the fourth quarter. Co-CEO Anshu Jain said at the bank's annual news conference that "this management team is not happy with these results." He said they represented "an inadequate return to our shareholders." Jain said the bank had put some of its biggest legal issues behind it and has continued to strengthen its capital buffer against losses by shedding risky investments. The company lost 3.2 billion euros (4.37 billion (b) US dollars) last year as it sold off assets that it had set aside for disposal. However, Jain said that boosted the bank's effective capital reserve by removing possible losses. He said the bank was still dealing with litigation from past issues, but that some of its biggest legal woes are behind it. In December, it was fined 725 million euros (990 million (m) US dollars) by the European Union over fixing interest-rate benchmarks. It also agreed to pay 1.9 billion (b) US dollars to settle a lawsuit by US housing finance authorities over mortgage-backed securities. Jain said the bank was making progress in instilling a more ethical culture through training and outreach to employees. He underlined the bank's new compensation practices, in which bonus pay is deferred for five years "and all of that can be clawed back if they are found to have engaged in wrongdoing."

STAY TUNED, MORE COMING UP SOON!! Bangkok[a] is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. It is known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon[b] or simply Krung Thep.[c] The city occupies 1,568.7 square kilometres (605.7 sq mi) in the Chao Phraya River delta in central Thailand, and has a population of over eight million, or 12.6 percent of the country's population. Over fourteen million people (22.2 percent) lived within the surrounding Bangkok Metropolitan Region at the 2010 census, making Bangkok the nation's primate city, significantly dwarfing Thailand's other urban centres in terms of importance. Bangkok traces its roots to a small trading post during the Ayutthaya Kingdom in the 15th century, which eventually grew and became the site of two capital cities: Thonburi in 1768 and Rattanakosin in 1782. Bangkok was at the heart of the modernization of Siam, later renamed Thailand, during the late-19th century, as the country faced pressures from the West. The city was at the centre of Thailand's political struggles throughout the 20th century, as the country abolished absolute monarchy, adopted constitutional rule, and underwent numerous coups and several uprisings. The city grew rapidly during the 1960s through the 1980s and now exerts a significant impact on Thailand's politics, economy, education, media and modern society.[citation needed] The Asian investment boom in the 1980s and 1990s led many multinational corporations to locate their regional headquarters in Bangkok. The city is now a regional force in finance and business. It is an international hub for transport and health care, and has emerged as a centre for the arts, fashion, and entertainment. The city is known for its street life and cultural landmarks, as well as its red-light districts. The Grand Palace and Buddhist temples including Wat Arun and Wat Pho stand in contrast with other tourist attractions such as the nightlife scenes of Khaosan Road and Patpong. Bangkok is among the world's top tourist destinations, and has been named the world's most visited city in several rankings. Bangkok's rapid growth coupled with little urban planning has resulted in a haphazard cityscape and inadequate infrastructure. An inadequate road network, despite an extensive expressway network, together with substantial private car usage, have led to chronic and crippling traffic congestion, which caused severe air pollution in the 1990s. The city has since turned to public transport in an attempt to solve the problem. Five rapid transit lines are now in operation, with more systems under construction or planned by the national government and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration.

IMQubator Seeding Model: Engineering hedge fund products to be bought, not sold
Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV IMQubator is a Dutch emerging manager seeding fund that connects institutional investors with emerging asset management talent. The firm was founded by Jeroen Tielman in 2009 with a €250m investment from APG, the asset manager for Dutch pensions giant Stichting Pensioenfonds ABP. In this Opalesque.TV interview, Tielman gives insight into IMQubator's seeding model, which seeks to address escalating investor concerns over lack of liquidity, inadequate transparency, fee structures, and governance structures that overwhelmingly benefit managers, by providing a pure "end-investor" model. According to Tielman, because seeders can connect with top emerging managers in a unique moment of their professional life-cycle where capital infusion is critical, seeding is that perfect moment to align interest between investors and managers. He promotes adjusting governance structures together with the emerging manager to provide end-investors with more power, engineering hedge fund products "to be bought, not sold". Institutional investor liability mismatches can therefore benefit from the absolute return nature of hedge fund investments, which are skill based - as opposed to long only - while capitalizing on improved governance structures. In addition, learn about the following: • The IMQubator seeding partnership model: -End-investor orientation: Aligns interests between investors and managers through enhanced governance -Geographic proximity to managers -Support operations and business development -Utilize the IMQubator Capital Introduction Network • Finding focused, innovative, liquid strategies with risk discipline • Selecting managers through a 4-dimensional process analysis • Partnering to find emerging managers in China • Seeding skill-based absolute return strategies to address institutional liability mismatches Jeroen Tielman is the CEO of IMQ Investment Management B.V. and the founder of the IMQubator hedge seeding fund. During his employment at ABN AMRO between 1986 and 2000, Tielman has gained experience in the area of investment analysis (incl. RBA), institutional sales (US), international corporate finance/M&A, and the development of asset management products as global head product development within ABN AMRO Asset Management. With the founding of the investment product-engineering boutique FundPartners in 2000, Tielman also gained experience as an entrepreneur, motivator of a team of high-level professionals, strategic advisor to pension funds and private banks, and as advisor on pension product design. Between 2006 and 2008 Tielman was Managing Director Commerce, Strategy & Innovation with Cordares. During 2008 Tielman extended his international pension fund contact network while working with among others TIAA-CREF on a pension investment collaboration initiative. In January 2009 he founded IMQubator. Tielman organizes the PensionSummit annually as a podium for and by pension funds (www.PensionSummit.com) since 2002.

How to Simplify Your Financial Portfolio?
As soon as you begin your career and start earning a monthly salary, different Advisers, Insurance Agents, Post Office Agents, Brokers and Financial Planners start approaching you to buy different investment products, Schemes, Insurance Policies, open a PPF Account or Open a NPS Account or Open a Demat Account etc. Invariably, you start making adhoc decisions based upon who is approaching you with what credentials and who is influencing you with his power-packed presentation or highly articulate conversations. Besides you have your boss, elder sister or father, advising you to start saving and invest in different schemes of their choice or fancy. 10 to 15 years into 2 or 3 job changes and by the time you are 35 or 40, you find you are saddled with a plethora of investment statements, policies, passbooks, portfolio valuation reports etc. This is an universal phenomena applicable to majority of earning individuals in their 30s or 40s. So much so that you do not have a clue about your total wealth, net worth, asset allocation or whether you have inadequate insurance plans or much in excess of what you need. If you are clumsy in record-keeping and safe keeping of your papers then the problem gets aggravated. There is a strong need to be 'well organized' and in control of your various investment/insurance plans. This is possible if you are aware about the importance of 'simplifying your financial portfolio' by following certain rules. Some of the suggestions to become 'well organized' by Group CEO & Director, Bajaj Capital - Mr. Anil Chopra.

Albie Matarutse: Lets Go Back to Factory Settings Through a Transitional Authority in Zimbabwe
BACK TO FACTORY SETTINGS!!!! A TRANSITIONAL AUTHORITY will be able to Hold a FREE AND FAIR ELECTION AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO FINALLY MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION ABOUT THE TYPE OF GOVERNMENT WE WANT. THE NEW DISPENSATION IS ABOUT PROTECTING THE BAG (BAG MEANING THE BILLIONS) • The NEW DISPENSATION OF ZIMBABWE is actually an Elite Cabal in the Business of Billions THROUGH stripping national and regional resources. • LOSS OF POWER specifically the PRESIDENCY would mean THE LOSS OF BILLIONS NOT JUST FOR THE Elite CABAL BUT FOR THEIR SHADY FRIENDS AND BUSINESS Partners ALL OVER THE GLOBE. • THE Elite Cabal has effectively personalized the Zimbabwean Defense forces into a commercial tool to safe guard their interests rather than the interests of Zimbabweans. • THE Elite Cabal is made up of Emmerson Mngangagwa, Chwengwa, Members of Junta (JOC), Judiciary and other sectors of Business. • The Junta, their friends and families control most areas of business and government in the country. They control the minerals, fuel, money exchange, elections, Judiciary etc. The Current leaders who mostly have backgrounds in the military have over the years created a cabal which uses the military to preside and safe guard its commercial interests in Zimbabwe and other African countries. • The History of the personalisng and commercialising of Zimbabwe Defense forces by ZANU PF and Military elite dates to the nineties in DRC where high ranking military leaders built military cooperate fronts to exploiate resources in DRC which included minerals, logging and wild life. • The Key strategist for the Zimbabwean branch of the elite network in exploiting resources was former National Security Minister, Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa now President of Zimbabwe. • As was discovered by the UN, the ZDF and other rogue military used specific strategies for generating revenues for the elite network through diamond, copper and cobalt mining companies. The network coordinates its operations between its political, military and business wings to generate maximum income. The following ways where used to maximize revenue: 1. Asset stripping of State mining companies, 2. Organized theft, 3. Using the corporate facade as a cover for criminal activities, 4. Mining revenues and the military. • Zimbabwe was supposed to be paid for its military support in the DRC through resources. Unfortunately, the money never made it to the Zimbabwe Treasury and instead it found its way into the pockets of the military elite. • All military commercial companies operate above the cabinet and parliament in a form of parallel government within the government. • Military has taken over many State owned enterprises and Parastatals which are supposed to be key socio-economic enablers in those areas where the private sector is reluctant to invest owing to inadequate investment, scarcity of capital, high risk aversion, and poorly developed markets • Military commercialism in Zimbabwe is ‘oiled’ by senior ZANU(PF) party officials and a handful of other business tycoons, namely Billy Rautenbach, John Bredenkamp (a former finance director of the Rhodesian Defence Force and now British Aerospace agent for South Africa), and Sam Pa (from Hong Kong).These men form the nucleus of the business–politico-military oligarchy in Zimbabwe, together with the members of the Joint Operations Command (JOC); commander of Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF), General Constantine Chiwenga; commander of the ZNA, Lieutenant-General Philip Sibanda; Air Marshall Perence Shiri Commissioner-General of Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Prison Service boss Brigadier Paradzai Zimondi; Director of the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO); and Emerson Mnangagwa, former Minister of Defence and current Minister of Justice and Legal Affairs, The Military in Zimbabwe’s Political and Electoral Affairs (Harare, Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition, 2011 • Military is involved in all sectors of economy , Command Agriculture , Petroleum , black market exchange, Wildlife, Minerals • In 2008 the Military conducted an operation called Operation Kakudzokwi Kumunda where they killed small scale farmers in Chaidzwa to pave way for military companies. • The military is involved State owned enterprises and Parastatals 1.

Raise Money-What not to do when seeking capital funding
Hosted by Ken Honeyman, The Capital MatchPoint, www.capitalmatchpoint.com, 770.433.8250...What a fantastic question: how to get your deal in front of the investor and what not to do. Everybody always talks to you about what to do and so forth. But I'm going to talk to you about what not to do from an investor's standpoint. There are nine items I'd like to take care of at this point. Number one, an inadequate team. I believe a quality team is probably the single most important factor in looking at a young company. So, surround yourself with people smarter than you. Number two, is the company crowded or in a noisy market space? Markets have a lot of players are difficult even if the innovation is head and shoulders above the rest. If it's a consumer market, you'll have trouble getting your message to stand out in this economic environment. Entrepreneur naivete. This ranges from plans that had no real plan from going to market. Their thoughts were just announced, and the customers will come. Unrealistic expectations with no real through put. Four, plans with no concise explanation. It drives us crazy. A plan gets about 30 seconds to catch my attention or the investors attention. If the first few sentences aren't compelling for me to keep reading, I won't. Five, plans that require too much total money. Angeles typically don't want to be the first quarter million dollars into a deal that's gonna take $10- or $20-million to achieve a profit. Evaluation. We've covered a lot about evaluation before, but what we often ignore is absurd evaluations. Early in our discussion of a company, a plan will fail if it's ten times what it ought to be. Seven, lack of barriers to entry to intellectual property. A star team can sell a plan that's really based on execution. But ordinary mortals like us have to show that they can keep others out of that space. Eight, problematic deals. Plans that don't fit the angels/VC mold of plans with unusual deal structures, the investors will tell you how they want to invest, typically. And finally, don't use a broker. Investors don't like paying brokers. They'd rather have the money going into the company, and too many of the brokers and companies at this stage are not properly licensed which casts a real pall on the whole transaction. So, prepare yourself to navigate the capital or raising minefield with some common sense and the help of professionals you'll find at The Capital Match Point.

What is EXIT PLANNING? What does EXIT PLANNING mean? EXIT PLANNING meaning, definition & explanation
What is EXIT PLANNING? What does EXIT PLANNING mean? EXIT PLANNING meaning - EXIT PLANNING definition - EXIT PLANNING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Exit planning is the preparation for the exit of an entrepreneur from his company to maximize the enterprise value of the company in a mergers and acquisitions transaction and thus his shareholder value, although other non-financial objectives may be pursued including the transition of the company to the next generation, sale to employees or management, or other altruistic, non-financial objectives. Exit planning differs from succession planning in that the later is a sub-component of exit planning, and refers to the hiring, training and retention of a successor President/CEO of the company in a planned manner. Succession Planning is but one of the many considerations when conducting exit planning. Company owners commonly do not see their company from the standpoint of a potential buyer, and thus, ignore the strategic management of the company. To achieve their desired outcomes, business owners often focus their attention on exit planning from the beginning of the investment, in order to prepare adequately for trade and financial sales, make effective use of the buy back option, market their businesses more widely for sale, use intermediaries and get the support of management Significant value is lost due to an absence of or inadequate exit planning. Roughly 30% of businesses will be transferred to family member in some manner, 18% intend to sell to its employees, and many will simply be closed. Up to one-third of businesses that are closed were successful at their termination The three sources of enterprise value in a company are firstly the value of its tangible assets, and secondly the value of its intellectual capital (intangible assets), which consist of human capital, relational capital, and structural capital (including is subcomponents organizational capital, innovation capital and process capital. Most of a middle-market company's and lower middle market company's value is derived from its relational capital, specifically, its customer relationships. SMEs, also referred to as middle market companies, create innovation capital (part of structural capital). Most small-to-medium-sized businesses use a boutique investment bank to market their company in a mergers and acquisitions transaction to potential buyers. Some boutique investment banks also offer exit planning preparation, while certain consulting firms offer one or more of the services needed to conduct exit planning, such as human resources, in connection with succession planning. Private Equity Groups are common acquirers of middle market businesses, whether as Platform companies or add-on or tack-on acquisitions. In addition to business aspects, personal considerations need to be taken into consideration, including considerations about estate taxes, capital gains taxes, or other taxes.

Need align your intuition with the flow of the market? This video is for you! This brand new hypnosis session from Hypnotist Amy will have you tap in tune in turn on to your money intuition, "Feel the money", and keep you feeling confident all day. This is a preview, full session coming soon! Become a Certified Hypnotherapist! Hypnosis education in Boston, MA. http://www.hypnotherapy.org Day trading is speculation in securities, specifically buying and selling financial instruments within the same trading day. Strictly, day trading is trading only within a day, such that all positions are closed before the market closes for the trading day. Many traders may not be so strict or may have day trading as one component of an overall strategy. Traders who participate in day trading are called day traders. Traders who trade in this capacity with the motive of profit are therefore speculators. The methods of quick trading contrast with the long-term trades underlying buy and hold and value investing strategies. Some of the more commonly day-traded financial instruments are stocks, options, currencies, and a host of futures contracts such as equity index futures, interest rate futures, currency futures and commodity futures. Day trading was once an activity that was exclusive to financial firms and professional speculators. Many day traders are bank or investment firm employees working as specialists in equity investment and fund management. However, with the advent of electronic trading and margin trading, day trading is available to private individuals. Because of the nature of financial leverage and the rapid returns that are possible, day trading results can range from extremely profitable to extremely unprofitable, and high-risk profile traders can generate either huge percentage returns or huge percentage losses. Because of the high profits (and losses) that day trading makes possible, these traders are sometimes portrayed as "bandits" or "gamblers" by other investors. Day trading is risky, especially if any of the following is present while trading: trading a loser's game/system rather than a game that's at least winnable, inadequate risk capital with the accompanying excess stress of having to "survive", incompetent money management (i.e. executing trades poorly).[3][4] The common use of buying on margin (using borrowed funds) amplifies gains and losses, such that substantial losses or gains can occur in a very short period of time. In addition, brokers usually allow bigger margins for day traders. In the USA for example, while the overnight margins required to hold a stock position are normally 50% of the stock's value, many brokers allow pattern day trader accounts to use levels as low as 25% for intraday purchases. This means a day trader with the legal minimum $25,000 in his or her account can buy $100,000 (4x leverage) worth of stock during the day, as long as half of those positions are exited before the market close. Because of the high risk of margin use, and of other day trading practices, a day trader will often have to exit a losing position very quickly, in order to prevent a greater, unacceptable loss, or even a disastrous loss, much larger than his or her original investment, or even larger than his or her total assets. Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. The term may also refer to an art, skill, or act of inducing hypnosis.[1] Theories explaining what occurs during hypnosis fall into two groups. Altered state theories see hypnosis as an altered state of mind or trance, marked by a level of awareness different from the ordinary conscious state.[2][3] In contrast, nonstate theories see hypnosis as a form of imaginative role enactment.[4][5][6] During hypnosis, a person is said to have heightened focus and concentration. The person can concentrate intensely on a specific thought or memory, while blocking out sources of distraction.[7] Hypnotised subjects are said to show an increased response to suggestions.[8] Hypnosis is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction involving a series of preliminary instructions and suggestion. The use of hypnotism for therapeutic purposes is referred to as "hypnotherapy", while its use as a form of entertainment for an audience is known as "stage hypnosis". Stage hypnosis is often performed by mentalists practicing the art form of mentalism.
Reasons that Cause Failure of Mergers and Acquisitions
What are the various possible reasons that cause failure of mergers and acquisitions? The following are the various possible reasons that cause failure of mergers and acquisitions. - Unrealistic price paid for the target: Before the merger or acquisition take place, the target company is thoroughly valuated. When this valuation is over-estimated, it results in the company acquiring to bear the additional burden of the overpricing. This is not visible immediately. The losses surface up over the later years. - Difficulties in cultural integration: There may be cultural differences in both the companies and these need to be dealt with in a very sensitive manner. If not done tactically, this might result in a disaster. This effect is more prevalent when both the companies are from different countries. The differences will become dominant over the years and can even result in the failure of the merger. - Overstated synergies: The purpose of mergers and acquisitions is to create synergies through - increased revenues - reduced costs - reduction in networking capital - improvement in the investment intensity If these factors are overestimated, it leads to failure of the mergers. - Integration difficulties: During integration, new challenges come up. To tackle these, the company prepares the plans. When the issues have inadequate or inaccurate information, the integration will be difficult. - Poor business fit: When the products are services of the merging business do not fit into the acquiring business’s overall business plan, the effective and efficient integration is delayed and subsequently fails. - Inadequate due diligence: Due diligence is very critical for the merger and acquisitions. When sufficient information is not available to detect financial and acquisitions it leads to failure. - High leverage: When the finance for acquiring is borrowed from market, it creates high leveraged structure and increases the amount of interest to be born by the company. This increased interest might be so huge that it eats up the profits and defeats the intention of acquisition. - Boardroom split: When there is re-alignment of power among the members of the board room, few members from both the business units might have differences of opinion. This leads to clashes and may delay or prevent the integration. - Regulatory issues: When the merger is against the consent of any of the stakeholders, they might create legal obstacles that might result in regulatory delay and in such cases there is more risk of deterioration of the business. - Human resources issues: The mergers might cause job losses, restructuring and implement a new corporate culture and identity. This might affect the employees psychologically in a negative manner. When the companies are more busy with the legal and financial considerations and neglect HR issues, it will impact the employees morale and productivity.

Student Accommodation Crisis in South Africa Creates a Unique Investment Opportunity
Availability of decent accommodation facilities for many South African students still remains a challenge. The department of higher education estimates that there’s over 216 000 bed shortage throughout the country as universities are unable to provide optimal student housing due to constrained budgets. Current student housing can only accommodate approximately 18% of the total student enrolments in higher education. New developments needed to match the growing numbers of students entering tertiary education each year. The consequences of inadequate quality housing goes far beyond a place to live while studying for these student. Research show that students that stay in quality student residence have a higher success rate than those in unconducive living environments. The solution is for the private developer to build off campus student housing that will cater for the student that require a more flexible and less regulated environment.

Passive income Investors enjoy the benefit of earning passive consistent passive income generated from property rental income.

As an investor into the crowd fund, you are also entitled to the income generated from selling the property after the holding period. Seasoned property investors usually have a holding period of between 6-10 years, however if economic conditions allow this can even be longer. #3.

The underlying property is also insurable in case of any unfortunate event, therefore your capital is almost guaranteed. #4. Inflation hedging Landlords usually transfers inflationary pressures to the tenant, protecting your capital from being negatively affected by inflation. #5. Diversification Exposure in unlisted real estate can also offer diversification benefits. Unlisted property investment returns are positively uncorrelated to most asset classes such as stocks and bonds.

But we will believe that everything will get better in our country." 17. Wide of market STORYLINE: Lacking the large foreign currency reserves of China and Russia, more integrated into the world economy than some smaller countries, Ukraine is being hit harder than other former Soviet states by the global financial crisis. The economic downturn has already caused halts in production, unemployment and a rise in the price of goods. Jittery customers lined up this week to buy dollars at exchange offices across the capital, Kiev, some of which ran out of cash. The Ukrainian currency recently plunged against the dollar to a historic low amid a run on banks and a frantic rush to convert savings into US currency. The hryvna has lost nearly a quarter of its value in recent months. This week, the hryvna plummeted to 6.01 hryvna per US dollar in trading at Ukraine's currency exchange. One customer at a Kiev market, Elena Stepanova, complained that prices had gone up by 40 per cent. She said Ukraine had reached "a dead end". Ukraine is reeling from a drastic fall in global demand for steel, the engine of the national economy. Plants across the country are halting production, laying off workers and slashing salaries. The stock market went into a free fall and the banking sector was hit by a run on banks. According to financial analyst Leonid Karpenko, head of Univer Capital, recent "inadequate" government actions have caused mistrust in the country's banking system. Ukraine is pinning its hopes on a 16.5 (b) billion US dollars loan from the International Monetary Fund. Four years of robust economic growth left Kiev clogged with shiny imported automobiles and dotted with upscale fashion outlets. Real estate prices exceeded those of Rome for a time and the stock market gained an astonishing 130 percent in 2007. But today, experts agree, Ukraine is in for tough times.

Enhancing Urban Resilience in Ghana's Greater Accra Region
The Greater Accra Region in Ghana is one of the fastest growing cities in West Africa, currently hosting over 4 million people. The regional economy accounts for about 25 percent of Ghana's national GDP. However, the unprecedented population growth and unplanned spatial expansion have exceeded the capacity of the city to keep up, resulting in housing shortages, urban sprawl, and informal settlements with inadequate urban services. This makes the Greater Accra Region vulnerable to a range of shocks. This was made clear in June 2015 when the region was deeply impacted by floods which affected over 50,000 people. Working with the World Bank, the Government of Ghana has identified the main issues that make the Greater Accra region vulnerable and formed a forward-looking strategy to create a more resilient Greater Accra Region that can better withstand the impact of disasters and reap the benefits associated with urban growth.
