It is common to hear a business person speak about the "bottom line" as an excuse for saying "no" to a possibility. The "bottom line" is about money or the return on investment: how much something will cost compared to how much it will generate. Sometimes the "bottom line" is used to explain why a company makes a choice that may seem to ignore social benefits or virtues. Closing a school because of budget shortfalls may be based on the "bottom line," even though it forces the students to travel outside of their neighborhood and attend schools in more crowded classrooms, for ...
Rather than follow a standard chronological order, the films offer an oblique series of interspersed moments along the overall timeline. Part One is entitled The Argentine and focuses on the Cuban revolution from the landing of Fidel Castro , Guevara, and other revolutionaries on Cuba to their successful toppling of the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista two years later. Part Two is entitled Guerrilla and focuses on Guevara's attempt to bring revolution to Bolivia and his demise.

Environmental concerns are major concerns today and every day: people are worried about the price of gas; scientists and governments are debating the issue of global warming and what to do about it; stories abound regarding solar energy and other alternative energy sources such as nuclear energy, biodiesel fuel production, and energy produced by wind farms. The price of a gallon of gas and how many miles to the gallon a particular car can achieve- both are familiar topics.

How long can White House keep Boehner's "ant" crack alive?
President Obama, in remarks about financial reform later today in Wisconsin, will unload a lengthy fusillade at Boehner, devoting three paragraphs to that one line in an effort to cast the GOP as out of touch with the financial crisis's impact on ordinary Americans. Excerpts: Most of our friends in the other party are planning on voting against this reform. In fact, just yesterday, I was stunned to hear the leader of the Republicans in the House say that financial reform was like using a nuclear weapon to target an ant. That's right. He compared the financial crisis to an ant. The same financial crisis that led to the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
US auto sales seen slowing with recovery in doubt
Forecasters think U.S. sales of cars and light trucks have slowed in June after months of improvement. It's another sign that people are beginning to doubt the economic recovery with unemployment still high. "The two big issues with consumers right now are employment growth and income growth, and they're not seeing much of either," said George Pipas, Ford Motor Co.'s top sales analyst. Three firms that track auto sales predict automakers will report a sales decline of anywhere from 9.5 to 12 percent from May to June when they turn in their figures on Thursday. A double-digit decline would be the biggest ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Makers of Socially responsible investments
Hello, I'd like some help in locating a recent listing of public and private companies or their foundations, and 'pension funds' that make socially responsible investments. The list should include domestic and international companies. I am particularly interested in any socially responsible investors in the area of economic development. I do not want data on individual investors and mutual funds which make socially responsible investments. Nor do I want data on the lists of companies that qualify for 'socially responsible' investments or belong to one or the other ...
Business Debt: How Debt Can Help You Grow
I want to dispel some of the myths about debt by demonstrating that debt can be a great way to take advantage of opportunities that will arise in growing your business - as long as it is managed properly! Example: Two similar businesses (Business ABC and Business XYZ). Each earns $10,000 per month in profits. Both have an opportunity to purchase a second piece of equipment for $120,000 that would double the business's profits. Business ABC - saves its monthly profits and plans to purchase the equipment in a year from now - assuming that the opportunity has not disappeared. Business XYZ - leverages its current ...
