Why Nations Become Rich: Small-Business Entrepreneurs and Free-Market Economics (2008)
The laissez-faire principle expresses a preference for an absence of non-market pressures on prices and wages, such as those from discriminatory government taxes, subsidies, tariffs, regulations of purely private behavior, or government-granted or coercive monopolies. Friedrich Hayek argued in The Pure Theory of Capital that the goal is the preservation of the unique information contained in the price itself. The definition of free market has been disputed and made complex by collectivist political philosophers and socialist economic ideas.[4] This contention arose from the divergence from classical economists such as Richard Cantillon, Adam Smith, David Ricardo, and Thomas Robert Malthus, and from the continental economic science developed primarily by the Spanish scholastic and French classical economists, including Anne-Robert-Jacques Turgot, Baron de Laune, Jean-Baptiste Say and Frédéric Bastiat. During the marginal revolution, subjective value theory was rediscovered.[5] Various forms of socialism based on free markets have existed since the 19th century. Early notable socialist proponents of free markets include Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Benjamin Tucker, and the Ricardian socialists. These economists believed that genuinely free markets and voluntary exchange could not exist within the exploitative conditions of capitalism. These proposals ranged from various forms of worker cooperatives operating in a free market economy, such as the Mutualist system proposed by Proudhon, to state-owned enterprises operating in unregulated and open markets. These models of socialism are not to be confused with other forms of market socialism (e.g. the Lange model) where publicly owned enterprises are coordinated by various degrees of economic planning, or where capital good prices are determined through marginal cost pricing. Advocates of free-market socialism such as Jaroslav Vanek argue that genuinely free markets are not possible under conditions of private ownership of productive property. Instead, he contends that the class differences and inequalities in income and power that result from private ownership enable the interests of the dominant class to skew the market to their favor, either in the form of monopoly and market power, or by utilizing their wealth and resources to legislate government policies that benefit their specific business interests.[6] Additionally, Vanek states that workers in a socialist economy based on cooperative and self-managed enterprises have stronger incentives to maximize productivity because they would receive a share of the profits (based on the overall performance of their enterprise) in addition to receiving their fixed wage or salary. Socialists also assert that free market capitalism leads to an excessively skewed distribution of income, which in turn leads to social instability. As a result, corrective measures in the form of social welfare[7], re-distributive taxation, and administrative costs are required, which end up being paid into workers hands who spend and help the economy to run. Corporate monopolies run rampant in free markets, with endless agency over the consumer. Thus, free market socialism desires government regulation of markets to prevent social instability, although at the cost of taxpayer dollars. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_market

Market Economy: Crash Course Government and Politics #46
Today, we’re going to take a look at how the government plays a role in the economy. Specifically, the way the government creates and maintains our market economic system. Now sure, the government’s role in the economy can be controversial, some may even say completely unnecessary. But there are some deficiencies in a free market, and we’re going to look at those, and the tools the government uses to combat those issues in maintaining a healthy and stable economy.

Circular Flow of Income. How the different components of an economy interact.
Transcript: 1 In macroeconomics, we study the economy of one country. 2 Then try to understand how 2 countries interact and trade. 3 And hopefully, understand the global economy. 4 So today, we are going to study the circular flow of income. 5 Let’s make things really simple. 5 Imagine we are alone on an isolated island. There’s no government, no trade, no savings. I told you, it's simple! 6 There’s only firms and households. (2-sector economy: firms + households (closed economy)) 7 Firms provide households with goods and services. 7 Out of thin air? 7 Nah.. 8 Firms gotta get factors of production from households. 8 It can be labor, land, capital or… 8 Face it. Some of us in households are going to be entrepreneurs. (For more information on factors of production: check out this video) 8 So…entrepreneurship. 9 For free? You wish! 9 We don’t get freebies from firms. 9 We don’t provide labor for free either. 10 So there’s money flowing in the opposite direction. 11 Households gotta pay firms for the goods they get. 12 Firms also gotta pay households in the form of wages, rents, interests or profits. 12 But this is a little weird. 12 We don’t spend everything we earn in real life. 13 So let’s add savings. 13 Savings is money we don’t spend. 13 So there’s money flowing out. 14 Hey, savings don’t just sit in banks… 14 Banks invest in firms by lending to them. 14 Cos firms need money to buy capital equipment or cover other costs of production. 14 So there's investments flowing into the economy. 14 Bravo! Awesome! 14 But this is a little too simplified. 15 Let’s add government. (3 sector economy: firms + households + government) 15 Government buys stuff as well. 15 So there’s money flowing in. 16 Government gets money from taxes. 16 Taxes. So there’s money flowing out. 16 Cos for the money we’re paying as taxes, we cannoyt spend it. 17 Lastly, countries interact with one another. 17 Imagine this is an American economy. 18 Let’s add trade. (4 sector economy: firms + households + government + foreign sector) 18 America imports stuff. 18 For example, America can import shoes from China. 18 Shoes flow from China into America. 19 And money spent on imports flows out of America into China. 19 America exports too. 19 America can produce software 19 and export it to foreigners, 20 Money then flows from foreign countries into America. 20 This is America's export earnings. 21 Investments, Government Spending and Export earnings are called Injections. 21 Cos money is flowing in. 22 Savings, taxes and import spending are called leakages or withdrawals. 22 Cos money leaks out of the system. And hey, injections and leakages are sort of related. Investments come from savings. Government spending comes from taxes. America makes money from foreigners by exporting. But foreigners also make money from America when America imports. Wow…no wonder it's Circular Flow of Income It tells us roughly how an economy functions. 23 How do we measure the size of an economy then? 24 By measuring Gross Domestic Product or GDP. 24 GDP is the total value of all final goods and services produced within the borders of a country during a given period. 25 Why must it be FINAL goods and services? (Hint: it's in the next video) 26 If you like this video, remember to like and subscribe. 27 Next up: Measuring GDP: Output Approach _______________________________________________ How does an economy function? Look at the Circular Flow of Income. Who are the major players in an economy? In order of increasing complexity, there are: 2-sector economy: households + firms 3-sector economy: households + firms + government 4-sector economy: households + firms + government + foreign sector There are real goods and services flowing in one direction in the circular flow of income and money flowing in the opposite direction. When money flowing to the country, it's called injections. When money flows out, it's called withdrawals or leakages. Injections consist of government spending, investments and exports. Leakages or withdrawals include imports, taxes and savings. Injections and leakages/withdrawals are related to each other. This is because government spending comes from tax revenues and investments, at least the local component, come from savings. That said, investments can flow from foreign countries in the form of foreign direct investments (FDI). Lastly, while money can flow from foreign countries when we export overseas, money also leaks out of the country because we import. Important definitions: Gross Domestic Product or GDP is the total value of all final goods and services produced within the borders of a country during a given period.

The Underground Economy: Crash Course Econ #32
What is an underground economy? Whether you call it a black market, a grey market, or just the shop down the street, its about connecting people with goods outside of official channels. Some stuff happens in the underground economy because it's illegal, but a lot of the money that moves around this way is exchanged for pretty mundane goods and services. We'll talk about how these things work, and the awesome ways that economists figure out where all that money is.

How to push Ukraine’s economic growth with SME-enterprises
Modern SME policy would 1. boost Ukraine’s economy 2. enable SMEs to challenge big businesses and 3. break up oligopolistic networks. Watch our video and tell us what you think. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) have played an important role in Ukraine’s transition process since the 1990s. However, the SME sector has received too little attention of Ukrainian policy makers for decades. The economic and legal conditions for SMEs are clearly below the international average. A consistent policy framework supporting SME development is yet lacking. The government limited SME policy to tax incentives and privileges for micro businesses. It neglects the needs, problems and impediments of growth-oriented companies. Only recently some of Ukraine’s policy makers realize the importance of SME to the country’s economic development. The motivation and contribution of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) is based on the FNF 2014-2016 project objective for Ukraine “to identify the major SME needs in Ukraine and propose appropriately targeted measures to improve the SME framework, thus expanding liberal policy approaches, identifying obstacles and initiating learning processes and social change to facilitate economic activity”. We have sketched a modern SME policy approach. It addresses the specific needs and problems of Ukraine’s various groups of SME. We founded our proposals on international experiences and scientific research. Ukraine’s SME sector is very special in many aspects. We adapted the international experience and research to Ukraine’s characteristics to help policy makers to formulate an adequate policy. Our policy proposals differ from those of many SME experts. Firstly, we do not recommend supporting SMEs for their sake. The point is not whether a company is big or small. The point is whether it is entrepreneurial. We see entrepreneurship as a means of personal development, reflecting the freedom of choice of occupation. Pseudo self-employment and subsistence businesses are the opposite of entrepreneurship. Therefore, we focused on helping people being in such occupations. They are to move on to better forms of income generation. Entrepreneurial firms that intend to grow and to innovate are the ones that contribute to Ukraine’s economic development. Secondly, we focus on policy measures that require only little or medium public expenditure, that are easy to implement and that will show directly positive effects. We see the relevance of other long-term SME policy programmes such as educational and training programmes, subsidy programmes and incubators etc. However, those measures are often not adequate for Ukraine. Ukraine faces decreasing public budgets. Therefore, the government cannot finance such programmes sufficiently. Ukraine has weak institutions and few capacities to manage such programmes. Ukraine’s current policy makers need short-term success stories and cannot wait for long-term effects. Thirdly, we emphasise the link between SME policy and competition policy. One of the biggest problems of Ukraine’s economy is the lack of competition. Many policy makers have served the big oligarch business networks to protect them from competition. The results of missing competition are low innovation, high prices as well as poor quality products and services. A policy that tries to support SME but avoids to threat big incumbent companies fails to create significant welfare effects. Foster fair competition, challenge incumbent industries and eliminate the unfair protection of oligarch networks, in sum: create a level playing field! That is the way out of Ukraine’s economic deadlock. Last but not least, we want to point out the link between SME policy and industrial policy, innovation policy, education policy, trade policy, FDI attraction policy and financial sector policy. From the perspective of an institution, it is against intuition to have an isolated small SME department within one ministry or to have one single SME development organisation. SME policy formulation should be a joint task of all ministries, parliament committees and state institutions that are involved in economic policy. http://www.ukraine.fnst.org http://www.facebook.com/fnf.ukraine http://fnst.org/sites/default/files/uploads/2016/10/24/2016competitionpolicyeng4web.pdf http://fnst.org/sites/default/files/uploads/2016/08/01/aeinukraineeng4web_0.pdf http://fnst.org/sites/default/files/uploads/2016/08/02/20141103smeinukrainefinal.pdf Alexander Knuth – Economist and Consultant, Expert for entrepreneurship and SME http://twitter.com/Alexander_Knuth Miriam Kosmehl – Head of Office Friedrich Naumann Foundation Ukraine and Belarus http://twitter.com/MiriamKosmehl Ansgar Otto - Produktion http://ansgarotto.de Nataliia Korobenko–Additional footage https://www.facebook.com/NataliTaliya Sarah Huzel – Hair and Make-up Artist

Lemonade Stand Economics
Want to quickly understand the basics of running a business? Then studying your neighborhood lemonade stand is a great place to start.

The lemonade stand is often one of the first experiences people have with running a business. You learn about marketing. What will your sign say and how will it look? What will you charge for your lemonade? Can you charge more when it’s hot out? You also learn one of the harder lessons about business: the difference between sales and profits. If a kid collects $20 selling lemonade for an afternoon, she might think she gets to keep all the money. And sometimes she can if mom provides all the lemons, sugar, and cups for free. But in a real business, you have to pay for those things. Let’s say those items cost $17. In this case, total sales are the $20 collected from the customers and the profit is the amount left after all costs are paid… $3. Most businesses have pretty low profit margins…. that is the profit made on each sales dollar. For example, grocery stores only keep $0.02 on every dollar they collect from customers. And restaurants only get a little more… around $0.03 for every dollar in food they sell. That can add up if you own a chain of grocery stores or restaurants. But, most business owners don’t own multiple locations. When governments add new regulations onto businesses, (even well-intended rules like requiring them to pay for healthcare, charging them for special licenses, or telling business how much to pay their employees) business owners have to figure out how to pay for those additional costs out of those low profits. This often means reducing the number of employees, switching to more self-service, or increasing prices. So the next time you hear about a new government requirement for business, just remember that they have to figure out how to pay for it. Too often, the result is a lost job or higher prices for you.

The Industrial Economy: Crash Course US History #23
In which John Green teaches you about the Industrial Economy that arose in the United States after the Civil War. You know how when you're studying history, and you're reading along and everything seems safely in the past, and then BOOM you think, "Man, this suddenly seems very modern." For me, that moment in US History is the post-Reconstruction expansion of industrialism in America. After the Civil War, many of the changes in technology and ideas gave rise to this new industrialism. You'll learn about the rise of Captains of Industry (or Robber Barons) like Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, John D Rockefeller, and JP Morgan. You'll learn about trusts, combinations, and how the government responded to these new business practices. All this, plus John will cover how workers reacted to the changes in society and the early days of the labor movement. You'll learn about the Knights of Labor and Terence Powderly, and Samuel Gompers and the AFL. As a special bonus, someone gets beaten with a cane. AGAIN.

Money and Finance: Crash Course Economics #11
So, we've been putting off a kind of basic question here. What is money? What is currency? How are the two different. Well, not to give away too much, but money has a few basic functions. It acts as a store of value, a medium of exchange, and as a unit of account. Money isn't just bills and coins. It can be anything that meets these three criteria. In US prisons, apparently, pouches of Mackerel are currency. Yes, mackerel the fish. Paper and coins work as money because they're backed by the government, which is an advantage over mackerel. So, once you've got money, you need finance. We'll talk about borrowing, lending, interest, and stocks and bonds. Also, this episode features a giant zucchini, which Adriene grew in her garden.

Honey for money: An economic lifeline for communities in Wulu
On the outskirts of Rumbek in the Western Lakes region of South Sudan lies Wulu. Little is known about this village, but there is something sweet about it. A group of women in this rural community have found new income opportunities through beekeeping and processing honey. Thirty-eight-year-old Alice Mamur has for many years been beekeeping, a skill she learnt from her father and later from her husband, using traditional methods such as the use of beehives made from bamboo. She says that she used to produce honey for consumption in her home, making traditional beer and for gifting during wedding ceremonies. In 2015, a programme supported by Oxfam, the UK charity dedicated to fighting global poverty, enabled Alice and other residents of Wulu to turn beekeeping into an income generating activity through training of modern beekeeping techniques, harvesting, processing and packaging the honey for consumers. There are similar programmes supported by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Beekeeping afforded women like Alice independence. “I am proud to be a woman working with my own hands to make a living to help my family,” said Alice Mamur. “I can now buy soap, pay my children’s school fees and put food on the table,” she said, tersely adding: “I am a responsible lady.” Tucked away some 25 kilometers away from Rumbek, a journey that takes nearly 2-hours by car due to poor road conditions, the beekeeping communities in Wulu sell their honey on the side of the road to motorists travelling to and from Rumbek. “During the rainy season when the road is impassable, our business suffers,” says Alice Mamur. Frequent insecurity along main supply routes also poses a threat to the business, cutting off Wulu from accessing bigger markets like Rumbek and the country’s capital, Juba. The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) unveiled a plan in December 2017 to rehabilitate 2350 kilometers of road to improve security, create an enabling environment for humanitarian partners to reach vulnerable communities, and to help boost the economy as traders would be able to safely transport their goods. The rehabilitation of road links will also enable UN peacekeepers to carry out more patrols along insecure roads, restoring confidence among local communities. The thirty-eight-year-old mother of four says that she “feels safe” when she sees UN peacekeepers in her area. “Sometimes I get discouraged because when we move into the forest to get the honey, we get harassed by men with guns. They steal our honey, slap us, and sometimes do other things to us,” said Alice Mamur. “I feel safer when I see UN peacekeepers in my area,” she added. With a promising market to turn beekeeping into a viable business, residents of Wulu, a primarily agriculturalist community say that there is an urgency to eliminate conflict between themselves and cattle keepers who migrate to their area with their livestock. Beekeepers have raised concerns about cattle keepers vandalizing their beehives when they reach their communities during the seasonal migration period. Another concern is that the smell of the cows forces bees to flee the hives. “We need a peace dialogue in the community so that those who are destroying the beehives can stop,” says Barnabas Dombolo Wany, the Chairperson of Wulu Farmers, Beekeeping and Marketing Association. There is hope that peace and normalcy will return to South Sudan so that untapped markets like beekeeping and processing of honey can reach their full potential, enabling beekeeping communities like Wulu to have prosperous lives and enjoy the sweet rewards.

A person who is employed by an organization or company. Businessmen are often associated with white collar jobs. In order to avoid sexism or the perpetuation of stereotypes, the term is often replaced with "businessperson". The term "businesswoman" is less commonly used. With an average salary of $122,090 per year in 2016, business operations managers are among the best-paid professionals on our list. Still, they make less than financial managers ($139,720) and marketing managers ($144,140). They do, however, earn more than accountants ($76,730) and management analysts ($91,910). Entrepreneurs occupy a central position in a market economy. For it's the entrepreneurs who serve as the spark plug in the economy's engine, activating and stimulating all economic activity. The economic success of nations worldwide is the result of encouraging and rewarding the entrepreneurial instinct. According to compensation survey administrator PayScale in 2010, the average income of small business owners varies widely depending upon their level of experience. For example, small business owners with less than one year of experience in running an organization earn an annual salary ranging from $34,392 to $75,076. In other words, it took chief executives only slightly longer than a day to out-earn an average worker's yearly salary, says the AFL-CIO, a union group, which released its annual survey of executive pay on Tuesday. The average pay for CEOs in the S&P 500 was nearly $14 million last year, about 6% higher than 2016 WATCH OUR MORE VIDEO🔶🔶🔶 BOW AMAR NOWAKHAILA🔶🔶🔶 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9MlHIYxgCY AIKI BOLLO PROTTOY 30K+🔶🔶🔶 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOKc2hW4ulA&t=4s DIGITAL PREMICK🔶🔶🔶 https://youtu.be/LZ0PQeo6dcY KITIPOTI YOUTUBER🔶🔶🔶 https://youtu.be/nowZeSOc0lI Bangladesher shonskriti🔶🔶🔶 https://youtu.be/nowZeSOc0lI Chakri pagol bangali🔶🔶🔶 https://youtu.be/mc7PbYjX6sc Dangarious rojadar 2 https://youtu.be/1yHrxSWyfVI🔶🔶🔶 Tnx for watching our video☺☺☺ Like coment and share👍👍 And stay with us🙎 And Don't forget to 🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻 subscribe 🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺🔺

Small to medium size businesses in Canada.
Economy, Employment, and the Community! Canada is one of the most attractive nations in the world due to the fact that people from all cultures, backgrounds, races, religions, etc. live, work, and run their own small to medium size businesses, side-by side in harmony. Today, business owners are facing serious challenges and hardships in their daily activities, and local retailers and merchants day-by-day, gradually losing their hope of prosperity, Mainly, due to the restricted policies and taxes that are imposed by the different levels of government, as well as lack of proper management of the market economy by the bank authorities. Stable economy free from useless restrictions, benefits communities.. On the other hand, unmotivated environment will make a society dull in the long run; which could become a suitable medium for corruption and crime. In the society that we live in everything somehow ends up being about money, but money is just a medium of exchange and no one should suffer from not having it! The basic requirement we have of our economy is that it should make it possible to exchange currency for products and/or services. In order for products to move we need energy, and to produce energy we need people to do the job. People must be physically and mentally healthy to be employed; and in order to have a healthy society we must have a practical social service system to educate (not necessarily through schooling) the public, to prevent and minimize unhealthy behaviour. A rich social service sector improves the quality of life, and provides an active and occupied society with a clean environment. Productive social services must focus on three stages of social life: pre-productive, productive, and post-productive. Services for the pre-productive should be available and not limed to infancy, childhood, schooling, etc. Services to those who are at the productive stage must consider work, skill, gender equality, pregnancy, illness, health, immigration, identity, business, etc. Services to those at the post-productive stage must cover retirement, housing, poverty, pensions, etc. A proper structure and application of a successful social safety net increases productivity, creates employment, motivates investments, and therefore makes a society wealthy as a whole, not to mention the resulting reduction, in crime, poverty, inadequate housing, illness, pollution, and so on. There are mainly two sources of employers. One is small & medium size businesses, who generally do less harm to the environment, create more jobs, and pay more taxes; the other is larger corporations, who usually do more harm to the environment, create fewer jobs, and pay less in taxes. To right the wrongs in society, we need professionals, who understand the socio-economic system well enough to reverse the unjust proportion of tax collection and regulations for different types of employers; a less regulated and less taxed small business environment and stiffer regulations and higher taxes for large corporations. To apply a well-planned social system structure we need competent administrators, who avoid unnecessary waste, and concentrate on helping others, rather than satisfying their own greed. We need people who are not politicians and cannot be bought easily, who are laser focused on how to resolve issues and come up with solutions, instead of working on methods of how to grab more taxes from the citizens. Remember. there are only two main sources for wealth, natural and human, and one without the other doesn't have any value; and it can be addressed by building valuable human interactions across the country, delivering relevant targeted communications that result in increased economic activity, and improved job market. You do know the truth. Nothing will ever change if we just sit back and watch. We don't need just believers, we need doers.

Trump could win trade battle with China but lose the war
Trade war with the U.S. is denting China's economy, with forecasters predicting the country's growth will slow further if another round of tariffs are allowed to take effect.Still, while President Donald Trump says the U.S. is in a strong position to clinch a favorable trade deal, experts say he may be misjudging China's determination.The biggest obstacle to an agreement may be Mr. Trump's personal negotiation style, which risks embarrassing the Chinese. Since President Donald Trump started jacking up tariffs on China last year, he's argued that the U.S. has the upper hand in negotiating with Beijing. He may be right — new numbers on consumer spending and industrial production show the Chinese economy continuing to slow, in part because of the ongoing trade war between the world's two largest economies. "One thing is for sure, the recent trade tensions have caused real damage to the manufacturing sector, exports, production and, most worrying, investment," analysts Wei Yao and Michelle Lam of Societe Generale said in a research note assessing China's latest economic data. By most measures China remains enviably vibrant: Over the first three months of 2019, its economy grew 6.4% from a year ago — more than twice as fast as the U.S. grew. Nor are Mr. Trump's tariffs the main cause of China's troubles. Its economy has been slowing for years as the country shifts away from manufacturing toward consumer spending, while the most recent dip has more to do with the Chinese central bank's reluctance to ease interest rates even as growth cools. Still, cracks are visible: UBS economists say China's gross domestic product could slip below 6% later this year.Since mid-April, China's benchmark stock market index in Shanghai has sunk more than 10%.Manufacturing growth fell to 5.4% in April from 8.5% in March.Auto sales in China have fallen roughly 15% from a year ago, reports Gavekal Economics.Exports to the U.S., which account for roughly 20% of China's foreign shipments, have declined $26 billion over the last six months, according to High Frequency Economics. The Trump administration is piling on the pressure in proposing to impose a 25% tariff on an additional $325 billion in Chinese goods as early as next month. That could reduce China's GDP by almost 1 percentage point, according to UBS, while also weighing down trade activity worldwide. "A further 25% U.S. tariff on $300 [billion] worth of goods would make global trade burn in a way that only 'Game of Thrones' watchers could understand," Freya Beamish, chief Asia economist with Pantheon Macroeconomics, said in a report. "We can eat grass" If China is feeling the effects of the trade war, however, so is the U.S. The latest round of U.S. tariffs and Chinese countermeasures have rattled financial markets, while everyone from farmers and small business owners to Fortune 100 CEOs have urged Mr. Trump to settle the conflict.

A film by Ricardo Figueredo Oliva / An Icarus Films Release http://icarusfilms.com/if-juan Seven pounds of rice, five pounds sugar, four ounces coffee, half a pound cooking oil, five eggs, 10 ounces beans, a small bread roll and a pound a half of meat – that’s the monthly allotment for Cubans under the country’s rationing system. An independent film financed through crowd-funding and without the participation of traditional Cuban film institutions, THE SINGULAR STORY OF UNLUCKY JUAN is a comprehensive, accessible examination of the particularities of the Cuban economy. Using a fictional worker called Juan as an example, the film shows how the economy affects the daily lives of ordinary citizens – and how badly it squeezes those who don’t have access to hard currency. Cuba has two currencies: the Cuban Peso and the CUC – a far more valuable currency pegged to international exchange rates. Tourists pay in CUCs and shop at CUC stores, which stock higher quality goods at a huge premium. Divided into chapters covering rations, the marketplace, CUC stores, private business, corruption, economic migration, and future Cuba, the documentary walks us through how each of these affects Juan and those like him. The film interviews a cross-section of Cuban workers and an economist who favours a more free-market approach, and offers sometimes hypnotic shots evoking economic activity: butchers cutting meat, fruit vendors at markets, shops lined with luxury goods inaccessible to most. Juan starts the month with 250 Cuban pesos. But once he’s paid for his food rations, extra food to meet his needs for the month, transit, utilities, and the new energy-efficient fridge he was obliged to buy (and use 20% of his monthly salary to pay off over a 10-year term), there is little left. No wonder so many Cubans rely on living with relatives, overseas remittances, or getting involved in corruption and the black market. As bad as things are, Cubans worry about what the future will look like once relations with the United States eventually become normalized. Speaking about the US, they worry the Americans “will swallow us whole” and use words like “crushed” and “assimilated” to describe what may lie ahead. The door has already been slightly opened – with a new foreign economic development zone and relaxed rules allowing some Cubans to own private businesses. But these are no panacea either. Small-business owners report frequent harassment, ticketing for endless infractions, and bureaucratic roadblocks. “I don’t own this business,” says a tired-looking woman, “I am its slave.”

Why Can't Chuck Get His Business Off the Ground?
http://iam.ij.org/9uFUX3 How can Americans create private sector jobs? The solution to America's jobs problem lies not with budget-busting federally mandated "stimulus" programs. Instead, what is needed are specific reforms that wouldn't cost taxpayers, would create a broader tax base for cash-strapped cities and states, and would provide opportunity for millions of Americans who worry where their next paycheck is coming from. As demonstrated by a series of eight new reports issued in October 2010 by the Virginia-based Institute for Justice, one of the principal obstacles to creating new jobs and entrepreneurial activity in cities across the country is the complex maze of regulations cities and states impose on small businesses. IJ's "city study" reports are filled with real-world examples of specific restrictions that often make it impossible for entrepreneurs to create jobs for themselves, let alone for others. Chip Mellor, the president and general counsel of the Institute for Justice, said, "If the nation is looking to the federal government to create jobs in America, it is looking in the wrong place. If we want to grow our economy, we must remove government-imposed barriers to honest enterprise at the city and state levels. Remove those barriers, and you will see a return to the optimism and opportunity that are hallmarks of the American Dream." IJ's eight reports document how irrational and anti-competitive regulations block entrepreneurship. More often than not, these government-imposed restrictions on economic liberty are put in place at the behest of existing businesses that are not shy about using government force to keep out competition. The Institute for Justice's city studies examine regulations imposed on a wide range of occupations in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Newark, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

5 Ways to Join the Sharing Economy
This video was sponsored by Bunz an app which helps you trade and swap with your neighbors! AKA participating in the sharing economy! You can download the app and start swapping at https://share.bunz.com/goingzerowaste --------------------------------- ABOUT THIS VIDEO -------------------------------- 5 Ways to Join the Sharing Economy full blog post: https://www.goingzerowaste.com/blog/5-ways-for-you-to-join-the-sharing-economy What is the sharing economy? According to Investopedia, “The sharing economy is an economic model often defined as a peer-to-peer (P2P) based activity of acquiring, providing or sharing access to goods and services that are facilitated by a community based online platform.” How does this relate to the environment? I’m so glad you asked! We have talked a lot about buying less, waiting 30 days before making a purchase, and making sure you only bring something truly valuable into your home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CG_P1cC57A&t=130s But, we haven’t talked a lot about sharing. The secondhand market and sharing are closely intertwined for me because both of them focus on using resources that are already in the waste stream. We currently live in a linear economy which means we take resources from the planet, turn them into products, and then once we’re done with them we dump them into a giant hole in the ground where they’ll live forever. Doesn’t make much sense right? Living a zero waste lifestyle is about moving to a circular economy where our resources can be used over and over and over again. To learn more about the circular economy check out the post What is Zero Waste? What is the Circular Economy? https://www.goingzerowaste.com/blog/what-is-zero-waste-what-is-the-circular-economy While most of the circular economy hinges on design and corporate responsibility, there are still ways we can perpetuate that in our day to day lives like sharing and shopping secondhand. ----------------- SOCIALS ----------------- Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/going.zero....

Finding Capital in 'Dark Pools' and Angel Investors
I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Big stock exchanges in the United States are linked in what is known as the national market system plan. The idea is to process deals and report the best available prices to the public as quickly as possible. But there are other ways of investing that operate outside the national market system. In the late nineteen nineties, the Securities and Exchange Commission wanted to make room for new ideas in financial trading. The commission developed new rules for exchanges and for what are known as alternative trading systems. Alternative trading systems are operated by brokers or dealers. They mainly serve big investors like retirement funds, universities and financial companies. These systems trade the same public stocks as other market players do. But they do not publicly report their trades. This secrecy explains why they also have another name: "dark pools." As of October, there were eighty-six alternative trading systems registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.A buy or sell order for a large amount of stock can move markets. It can influence other investors to try to buy or sell shares of that same stock. Supporters of alternative trading systems say the secrecy reduces the risk of a disorderly market. But the International Monetary Fund has concerns about alternative trading systems. It says they limit the ability of the investing public to price a security effectively. Also, the IMF says the activity of these trading systems is largely outside the reach of market regulators. Another alternative to the investing methods that most people know is the work of so-called angel investors. These are individuals who invest in new projects -- and not just Internet startups that hope to become the next Google or Facebook. They could also be small, local businesses. Steve Moore made a lot of money in the software business. After he retired he made an interest-free loan to Crystie and Keith Kisler. The couple operate a small organic farm in Washington state. They could not get a bank loan to build their business.In return, Mr. Moore received a minority share of their business. The Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire says angel investing fell more than six percent nationwide in the first half of last year. Still, angel investments during that period totaled eight and a half billion dollars.For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 14Jan2011)

New Technologies in Emerging Markets and the Impact on Multinational Business Models (2006)
Emerging markets are nations with social or business activity in the process of rapid growth and industrialization. The economies of China and India are considered to be the largest.[1] According to The Economist many people find the term outdated, but no new term has yet to gain much traction.[2] Emerging market hedge fund capital reached a record new level in the first quarter of 2011 of $121 billion.[3] The seven largest emerging and developing economies by either nominal or inflation-adjusted GDP are the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), as well as MIKT (Mexico, Indonesia, South-Korea and Turkey). The ASEAN--China Free Trade Area, launched on January 1, 2010, is the largest regional emerging market in the world.[4] The term "rapidly developing economies" is being used to denote emerging markets such as The United Arab Emirates, Chile and Malaysia that are undergoing rapid growth. In recent years, new terms have emerged to describe the largest developing countries such as BRIC that stands for Brazil, Russia, India, and China,[12] along with BRICET (BRIC + Eastern Europe and Turkey), BRICS (BRIC + South Africa), BRICM (BRIC + Mexico), BRICK (BRIC + South Korea), Next Eleven (Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Turkey, and Vietnam) and CIVETS (Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey and South Africa).[13] These countries do not share any common agenda, but some experts believe that they are enjoying an increasing role in the world economy and on political platforms. It is difficult to make an exact list of emerging (or developed) markets; the best guides tend to be investment information sources like ISI Emerging Markets and The Economist or market index makers (such as Morgan Stanley Capital International). These sources are well-informed, but the nature of investment information sources leads to two potential problems. One is an element of historicity; markets may be maintained in an index for continuity, even if the countries have since developed past the emerging market phase. Possible examples of this are South Korea[14] and Taiwan. A second is the simplification inherent in making an index; small countries, or countries with limited market liquidity are often not considered, with their larger neighbours considered an appropriate stand-in. In an Opalesque.TV video, hedge fund manager Jonathan Binder discusses the current and future relevance of the term "emerging markets" in the financial world. Binder says that in the future investors will not necessarily think of the traditional classifications of "G10" (or G7) versus "emerging markets". Instead, people should look at the world as countries that are fiscally responsible and countries that are not. Whether that country is in Europe or in South America should make no difference, making the traditional "blocs" of categorization irrelevant. The Big Emerging Market (BEM) economies are (alphabetically ordered): Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea[14] and Turkey.[15] Newly industrialized countries are emerging markets whose economies have not yet reached first world status but have, in a macroeconomic sense, outpaced their developing counterparts. Individual investors can invest in emerging markets by buying into emerging markets or global funds. If they want to pick single stocks or make their own bets they can do it either through ADRs (American depositor Receipts - stocks of foreign companies that trade on US stock exchanges) or through exchange traded funds (exchange traded funds or ETFs hold basket of stocks). The exchange traded funds can be focused on a particular country (e.g., China, India) or region (e.g., Asia-Pacific, Latin America). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerging_markets

Globalization I - The Upside: Crash Course World History #41
In which John Green teaches you about globalization, a subject so epic, so, um, global, it requires two videos. In this video, John follows the surprisingly complex path of t-shirt as it criss-crosses the world before coming to rest on your doorstep, and eventually in your dresser. (Unless you're one of those people who never puts their laundry away and lives out of a laundry basket. If that's the case, shame on you.) Anyway, the story of the t-shirt and its manufacture in far-flung places like China, Guatemala, and India is a microcosm of what's going on in the global economy.

National & Regional Economic Outlook (Bronx, New York 2011)
Remarks by William C. Dudley, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Federal Reserve Bank of New York before the Bronx Chamber of Commerce at the New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, New York on October 24, 2011. Remarks Good morning. I am very pleased to be at the New York Botanical Garden to speak to members of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce this morning. The Garden is one of the jewels of the Bronx and it is always a pleasure to speak with the business leaders of a community as vibrant as the Bronx. Over the past 20 months, I have been engaged in a series of outreach meetings all across my Federal Reserve District. I consider these visits just as important as my trips to Washington, D.C., to help formulate monetary policy or to Switzerland to shape international bank regulation. The understanding that I gain today will help ensure that my policy decisions reflect the public interest in the broadest sense. Each visit within the region helps me deepen relationships with the people I represent. As you may know, the New York Fed's District includes all of New York State; 12 counties in northern New Jersey; Fairfield County, Connecticut; Puerto Rico; and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This year I have met with community leaders, businesses and elected officials around the region. Although the Bronx is the city's second smallest borough, it has 1.4 million residents—equal to the combined population of three to four average U.S. cities. You host world-class institutions such as the Yankees, the New York Botanical Garden, the Montefiore Medical Center and the Hunts Point Market. You also are home to the largest Dominican population in the city and sizable groups from around the globe. In sum, the Bronx is a major metropolitan area and economic force all on its own. What the New York Fed Does By way of introduction, I will briefly review what the New York Fed does and what makes my job so interesting. As always, what I have to say reflects my own views and not necessarily those of the Federal Reserve System or the Federal Open Market Committee, also known as the FOMC. I serve as Vice-chair of the FOMC—a Federal Reserve committee that meets eight times a year in Washington, D.C., to set interest rates and make other decisions about monetary policy. At FOMC meetings, each Committee member presents a current regional and national outlook. For these assessments, we consult our researchers and add critical information that we learn from our boards of directors, regional councils and community leaders, such as you. At the New York Fed, we continually track conditions in our District and have created tools for that purpose. For example, my staff produces monthly indexes of economic activity—essentially local measures of output—for the city, New Jersey and New York. We have also started a consumer panel to track local household credit conditions. In addition, we have a new survey about credit and financing for small businesses. Almost 900 regional businesses responded to our May 2011 poll—nearly 10 percent from the Bronx. If you, as part of a small business, would like to participate in our January poll, please pass your card to my colleagues in the audience. This December we will host a workshop for the New York City metro area's small businesses—to provide information about credit enhancements and loans from the Small Business Administration. I will send your president, Mr. Caro, details about how to register. I hope to see you in at the New York Fed in lower Manhattan in December. As you know, even states as wealthy as New York have large pockets of poverty. So, we target some key initiatives specifically to low- and moderate-income groups. We have worked hard to help neighborhoods, including some in the Bronx, that face high foreclosure rates. Later today, I'll tour some hard-hit areas with the city's commissioner of Housing Preservation and Development. To share what we learn about our diverse District, we have a rich website. I invite you to visit newyorkfed.org to explore our detailed maps and information on small business, credit and housing conditions. Finally, and crucially, in the aftermath of the financial crisis, we are working with Fed colleagues and other agencies to help put the nation's financial system on a firmer footing. Yet, much remains to be done and we are determined to keep at it. I recognize fully that there can be no return to pre-crisis business as usual—whether on the part of the financial sector or on the part of regulators like ourselves....

British Columbians, Prepare Yourself For Economic Change
BC's Finance Minister released its first fiscal update on this year's budget and forecasts that property transfer tax revenue will surpass all other revenue for the Province of BC. But real estate sales have been declining after introduction of the foreign buyer's tax, and all signs point to a further cooling of the market. What will a real estate slowdown mean for BC consumers? A slowdown of business activity, stagnant wages and a scarcity of jobs. These are risks that British Columbian's need to be aware of. Fortunately there are simple steps consumers can take to be more financially prepared: 1) control spending; 2) address debt problems; and 3) create a cash reserve. For help with consumer debt in Greater Vancouver and on Vancouver Island, contact Lana Gilbertson, Licensed Insolvency Trustee at 604-637-1599.

The Dark Side of the New Global Economy: A Shocking Discovery (2007)
A subcontractor is an individual or in many cases a business that signs a contract to perform part or all of the obligations of another's contract. A subcontractor is a person who is hired by a general contractor (or prime contractor, or main contractor) to perform a specific task as part of the overall project and is normally paid for services provided to the project by the originating general contractor. While the most common concept of a subcontractor is in building works and civil engineering, the range of opportunities for subcontractor is much wider and it is possible that the greatest number now operate in the information technology and information sectors of business. The incentive to hire subcontractors is either to reduce costs or to mitigate project risks. In this way, the general contractor receives the same or better service than the general contractor could have provided by itself, at lower overall risk. Many subcontractors do work for the same companies rather than different ones. This allows subcontractors to further specialize their skills. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subcontractor In business, outsourcing is "an agreement in which one company contracts-out a part of their existing internal activity to another company".[1] It involves the contracting out of a business process (e.g. payroll processing, claims processing) and operational, and/or non-core functions (e.g. manufacturing, facility management, call center support) to another party (see also business process outsourcing). The concept "outsourcing" came from the American Glossary 'outside resourcing' and it dates back to at least 1981.[2][3] Outsourcing sometimes, though not always, involves transferring employees and assets from one firm to another. Outsourcing is also the practice of handing over control of public services to private enterprise.[4] Outsourcing includes both foreign and domestic contracting,[5] and sometimes includes offshoring (relocating a business function to a distant country)[6] or nearshoring (transferring a business process to a nearby country). Outsourcing is often confused with offshoring, however, they can be distinguished: a company can outsource (work with a service provider) and not offshore to a distant country. For example, in 2003 Procter & Gamble outsourced their facilities' management support, but it did not involve offshoring.[citation needed] Financial savings from lower international labor rates can provide a major motivation for outsourcing or offshoring. There can be tremendous savings from lower international labor rates when offshoring. In contrast, insourcing entails bringing processes handled by third-party firms in-house, and is sometimes accomplished via vertical integration. However, a business can provide a contract service to another organization without necessarily insourcing that business process. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outsourcing

Growth of SMEs - KTN Business Weekly edition of 3rd March, 2010
Small and medium-sized enterprises and individuals are excluded from the credit market even after the Central Bank of Kenya urged lenders to lower their lending rates. This goal has remained elusive in the Kenyan economy suppressing business growth, employment creation and economic activity. There is a need for the Kenyan market to bring in more innovative ways of making cost of credit to individuals and businesses go down.
