Industry Seeks More Bargaining Power

industry seeks more bargaining power special research report Photo by
Expanding women’s outside options, including paid work at living wages, is a mechanism for improving their well-being. But in developing countries, the dual phenomenon of women’s segregation in export industries and increased firm mobility constrain women’s ability to improve their wages, work conditions, and to bargain for more secure jobs. Efforts to bargain for higher compensation can lead to employment losses, if firms relocate to lower wage sites. These structural factors, rather than gender gaps in education, are largely responsible for persistent wage inequality. The World Bank views trade and market liberalization as ...

WASHINGTON — A defiant President Barack Obama says he’ll defend his new health care law against a Republican campaign to repeal it.

Auditor industry specialization, client bargaining power, and ...
The purpose of this study is to examine audit pricing by Big 6 auditors, and the joint effects of industry specialization and client bargaining power on audit fees. Drawing on Porter's (1985) analysis of corporate strategy, auditor industry specialization is viewed as a differentiation strategy whose purpose is to provide auditors with a sustainable competitive advantage over nonspecialist auditors. Porter (1985, 14) explains differentiation as follows: In a differentiation strategy, a firm seeks to be unique along some dimensions that are widely valued by buyers. It seeks one or more attributes that many buyers in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
China seeks slimmer, more efficient steel sector
China is considering raising steel industry standards to force its mammoth steel sector to slim down and consolidate, leaving China - the world's top producer and consumer - with a few globally competitive steelmakers. The country's central government will restrict steel production, force mills to move to coastal regions and ditch inefficient equipment under a draft proposal being discussed by the government, an industry source said on Wednesday. The draft plan would limit China's crude steel output from 2011 onwards to 500 million tons a year. That restriction may not take much of a bite out of existing ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Credit slave salvation
The US is getting closer to passing a landmark bill designed to overhaul regulation of the US financial system, and nestled within the massive financial reform package is the creation of a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This agency seeks to stop financial institutions taking advantage of American consumers and trapping them in financial misery. Australia has done nothing substantive in this area and, looking at the National Consumer Credit Code launched this week, shows just how far adrift we are. I wrote about this two months ago, with a focus on credit cards, and got a huge response from readers. While some supported ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The rule of caveat emptor says that the buyer should be careful while purchasing the goods and should ascertain that the goods suit his purpose. He cannot blame the seller if there was an implied undertaking by the seller that he shall supply such goods as to suit the buyer. The words Caveat Emptor mean buyer beware. For instance, if A purchases a horse from B, for the purpose of horse-riding, a fact that he does not disclose to C. The horse however is not suitable for horse-riding, but only for drawing carriage. Applying the rule of Caveat Emptor, A can neither reject the horse, nor claim compensation from C. The following are ...
What was the final vote count on the energy bill that passed the ...
WASHINGTON – In a triumph for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed sweeping legislation Friday that calls for the nation's first limits on pollution linked to global warming and aims to usher in a new era of cleaner, yet more costly energy. The vote was 219-212, capping months of negotiations and days of intense bargaining among Democrats. Republicans were overwhelmingly against the measure, arguing it would destroy jobs in the midst of a recession while burdening consumers with a new tax in the form of higher energy costs. The House's action fulfilled Speaker Nancy Pelosi's vow ...
