It’s beginning to become clear that Google’s push back on China has become a watershed moment in the history of industrial globalization and everyone is struggling for context.  It’s important to consider the increasing anxiety in the US over the rising economic power & competitiveness of China as we address the core question: should Microsoft, Google & everyone else head for the airport and get out of China now in the interests of human rights? Is the public analysis of a question of principle based divestment getting clouded by a political urge for trade protectionism? Watch for this in the US government ...
to put "an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories captured during the 1967 military campaign." 1 The disinvestment campaign is related to other economic and political boycotts of Israel .

Darfur A Forgotten Genocide
“These instruments can teach, they can illuminate, and yes, they can even inspire; but they can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use them towards those ends. … Otherwise,they’re merely wires and lights in a box.” — Edward R. Murrow, October 15, 1958 It’s hard not to be self-involved while the US and UK have children dying daily in Iraq. Not to mention the hundreds of thousand of innocent Iraqi victims who seem to die nameless deaths and the escalation through Iran. But if there is time to focus on the sadness of the Anna Nicole Smith death then surely there is time for the thousands that continue to die ... market research, surveys and trends
Nation Writer Argues that Israel Boycott and Divestment is Futile ...
Insanity, they say, is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Actually, that is just scientific irrationality. In human affairs, alas, insanity is doing the same thing and expecting the same result. A case in point is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel, which—considering what happened at the University of California, Berkeley, in late April, and off the Gaza coast in late May—will be coming soon to a campus near you. [...] is Israel really like apartheid South Africa? No. The Israeli economy does not depend on Arab labor—and never did. (From 1967 to the 1990s, it is true, Israelis did ... market research, surveys and trends


Disturbing Israeli Poll, An Israeli Activist's View On Divestment ...
A very disturbing poll appeared in Ha'aretz last week. The poll indicates a hardening of Israeli views on Arabs; not only regarding those in the Occupied Territories, but also within Israel itself. To be sure, the second intifada has a lot to do with these feelings. Still, when one steps back for a moment, it seems clear that something else must be at work. In the past year, Israelis have experienced considerably fewer violent attacks as the intifada has slowed (it should be noted that there is little evidence, other than the coincidental timing, that the wall is the reason--rather, the fact that Hamas and even ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

David Paterson to provide state property at an alternative site to the organizers of the "ground zero mosque" could violate the constitutional prohibition against the establishment of religion, two legal experts tell Salon. Paterson said today that he does not have a problem with the plan to build an Islamic center called Cordoba House near ground zero, but because of the outcry against it he made this offer: "if the sponsors were looking for property anywhere at a distance that would be such that it would accommodate a better feeling among the people who are frustrated, I would look into ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

A necessary prelude to peace?
"Beneath the official level of western governmental support for Israel, there is private disquiet about Israeli conduct. And at the popular level, there is a sea change in opinion: where Israel was once seen as the victim, it has now become the bully. In Britain, for example, the strength of popular sympathy for Palestinians is striking. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the same is happening elsewhere....If this trend continues and Israel's isolation worsens it will be no bad thing. It may be the only way for Israelis to grasp that endless aggression comes at a price and that peace is not made through the barrel of a gun." ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Harvard Darfur Action Group :: Divestment
Since the genocide in Darfur began in 2003, the world has attempted to exert pressure on the Sudanese government with minimal success. The Sudanese government relies heavily on foreign investment to fund its ongoing genocide. In addition, the Sudanese Government has shown itself to be responsive to financial pressure in the past. Given this particular confluence of factors, Darfur presents a special case in which institutions can influence the Government of Sudan by pressuring the companies that are funding the genocidal campaign to sell ("divest") shares that they own in the companies operating in the Sudan...

Evaluating the divestment worth of a profitable business line ...
I am seeking practical models of evaluating the value of a running business line and arriving at specific divestment worth for the same. If previous revenues, profitability and future forecasts are available, how would one value this line for potential buyers by including measurable earnings and intanglibles?

Google Answers: main investment/divestment made by Electrolux in ...
verdemilon-ga, You're in luck. A cancelled meeting this evening left me with more time available than I thought I would have, so here's your list of the many Electrolux comings and goings in what certainly seems was a tough decade for the company. As I mentioned earlier, I can't post the full articles, nor can I post links to the articles, since these are from subscription databases. However, I've provided the most relevant excerpts from 1991-1999, just as I did for the year 1990, above. Bear in mind that some articles are very brief news items -- only a sentence or two in some cases -- ...
