banking system caused by the overvaluation of assets. It has resulted in the collapse of large financial institutions, the bailout of banks by national governments and downturns in stock markets around the world. In many areas, the housing market has also suffered, resulting in numerous evictions , foreclosures and prolonged vacancies. It is considered by many economists to be the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It contributed to the failure of key businesses, declines in consumer wealth estimated in the trillions of U.S. dollars, substantial financial commitments incurred by governments , and a ...
Mike's Beat: Fiscal crisis and tax populism
A recent article of distinguished American social scientist Immanuel Wallerstein serves as an eye-opener to the perils of populist rhetoric for the so-called "lowering" of taxes. Prof. Wallerstein explains how practically all governments around the world are having problems to balance their budgets and inevitably borrow money or reduce costs, which, at the end of the day, do not seem to be enough. Hence the need to raise taxes, which can be done in various ways, both directly (such as an increase in income tax or VAT) or indirectly (such as increasing the costs of government services). He says that, ultimately, ... market research, surveys and trends

I am against labour, and against conservatives for one reason – they want to take away the country’s free speech.

The pensions crisis and 2012 | How employers can deal with ...
Changes to pension legislation in 2012 will revolutionise the balance of responsibility between company and employee. Ian Bird, principal partner at financial advisory firm Foster Denovo , explains what companies need to consider now. Pension schemes are in shortfall, even among FTSE 100 companies, and millions are still under-saving for their retirement. Research we commissioned from YouGov recently revealed that more than a third of adults in the UK do not have a personal or company pension plan in place. The personal accounts scheme is the government’s long-term answer to the current pensions crisis. Personal accounts ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
More Scare Stories About State Pensions at the NYT | Beat the Press
The vast majority of state and local pension funds are underfunded. The NYT, and especially Mary Williams Walsh, have done excellent work over the years trying to call attention to this underfunding. However, today's article on the topic definitely goes overboard. The article is largely based on an analysis by Joshua Rauh , a finance professor at Northwestern University, that calculates the unfunded liabilities of pension funds by assuming that assets only get the same rate of return as U.S. Treasury bonds. By contrast, the standard method for calculating liabilities assumes that pension funds earn a real return of 5.0 ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
IMF's Cottarelli Says Countries Need Medium-Term Deficit Plans
July 15 (Bloomberg) -- Advanced countries that based budget plans on optimistic growth forecasts need to spell out how they will meet deficit-reduction targets after 2011, the head of the International Monetary Fund’s fiscal department said. “The first year is relatively easy because most of the adjustment that we have is simply the fiscal stimulus coming to an end,” Carlo Cottarelli, a former Bank of Italy economist, said in an interview July 13 in Washington. “What is missing is the medium-term perspective.” President Barack Obama and other Group of 20 leaders agreed in June to halve their budget ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Control Of Pa. House Up For Grabs In Fall Election
If Republicans pick up just three seats in the 203-member Pennsylvania House of Representatives in the November election, it could bring sweeping policy changes to a state that can't seem to make up its mind whether it wants to be blue or red. There will be plenty to talk about on the campaign trail, from the dysfunctional budget process and state spending to the "bonusgate" corruption cases and lingering resentment over the 2005 pay raise and the 2001 pension grab. The campaign news this summer has focused on the two high-profile races for governor and U.S. Senate, but the outcome of legislative races could ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Ford Library Blog » Human Resources
Author Pamela Stone conducted in-depth interviews with 54 high-achieving women, in high-status, high-knowledge professional fields, such as consulting, law, finance and medicine, who were all married to equally powerful men, and who seemingly abandoned their rewarding careers to become stay-at-home mothers. Rather than opting out of the workplace, these women found themselves with increased responsibilities at home and with husbands who were reluctant to help them. Beyond the mandated maternity leave, these highly successful women were unable to find the flexibility they needed to continue working in an environment where 60 ...
