Old Bones, New Data: Emmett Hall, Private Insurance and the Defeat ...
A paper by Selden and Sing (2008) reminds us of what was at stake 45 years ago, when Emmett Hall recommended universal public medical insurance over private-public alternatives. While focusing exclusively on the United States, it also helps to explain why universal pharmacare is being diverted into that same private-public dead end through public "catastrophic" coverage. Governments finance, through many different programs, most US health expenditure. Spending programs - Medicaid, Medicare and others - primarily benefit the unhealthy and unwealthy. However, benefits of the largest program, the tax exemption for private ... market research, surveys and trends

Tech Cheat Sheet: Nasdaq Analysis and Stocks to Watch
So far in the month of June we have seen a continuation of May’s volatility storm.  The month started with the market trading in a range between the February lows and the 200-day moving average and subsequently we have seen that range resolve to the upside.  Additionally, the NASDAQ has pushed through the steep downtrend line that had constrained any rally since peaking out on April 26th.  This give us several levels to trade against from the long side. In this latest market down move that started in late April, the NASDAQ fared far better than the S&P 500 and/or Dow by remaining comfortably above the lows set in February ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Why Android Is Attractive for Alt-Payment Companies
A growing number of mobile payments companies are promoting systems that charge purchases to users' phone bills rather than credit or debit cards. Since Apple Inc.'s tight control of the iPhone precludes this approach, the payments firms are gravitating to Google Inc.'s Android — which itself is emerging as the handset of choice for the consumers most likely to use their phones for banking and financial activities. On Wednesday, Zong Inc. and Boku Inc. each introduced tools that let software developers weave their payments systems into applications for Android phones. These systems could be used, for ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Small Business Blog - Recession Aside, You Still Need To Advertise
Recession or, well, recession, my RSS reader is filling up with articles about why you shouldn't cut your advertising budget just because times are tight. Let your competitors do the cutting while you maintain the status quo, they argue, and it'll look like you're doing more. "If your company has something to say that is relevant in this environment, it's going to be more efficient to say it now than to say it in better times," says Wharton marketing professor Leonard Lodish, who also says that message should be less about price cuts and more about how your offerings can benefit customers. ...
GAP Program is Going Away
Google has been doing some serious thinking about the GAP (Google Advertising Professional) program for at least three years. A while ago they redid the entire learning center. Then they launched Agency Land. And today they launch their new certification program. Here are the main differences: Individual Qualification Old Days: One test and spend requirement.
