Worker Ownership American Style

Employee ownership has attracted attention and interest for a wide variety of reasons. Much of the interest has focused on the potential for better economic performance, particularly through enhanced motivation and commitment from employees who have a direct stake in firm performance. Strong majorities of the public believe that employee-owners work harder and pay more attention to the quality of their work than non-owners, and are more likely than outside shareholders to vote their shares in the long-term interest of the company. 1 There have also been social arguments for employee ownership, based on its potential to ...

Sessions Questions Kagan's Stance On The Military | Personal ...
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) challenged Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan last week after she justified her decision to limit military recruiters’ access to Harvard Law School students during her tenure as dean. Kagan has been heavily criticized over the last month for her decision to ban military recruitment personnel from the law school’s career office due to her condemnation of the "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy, which bans openly gay individuals from serving in the military. During their somewhat heated exchange, Kagan told Sessions that military recruiters had access to students "every single day ... market research, surveys and trends

Last week, Blue State cities that are trying to corral handguns lost when the Court’s Bush-Reagan majority decided that personal firearm ownership is an essential element of “ordered liberty.” Progressives rightly shudder: There are parts of America, like our big northern cities, where folks have figured out that they really don’t like guns and don’t see the need for them and don’t hunt anyway, and if you want to fight, then go to Tae-Bo class or hire a lawyer.

Who first gave Tivoli its guns?
IF we should follow the narrative according to Eddie Seaga, the architect of Tivoli Gardens and Jamaica's most confrontational prime minister (1980 to 1989) and political leader (1974 to 2005), there are no guns in Tivoli Gardens. When Seaga openly drank beer with Lester Lloyd 'Jim Brown' Coke (after 'Jim Brown' was freed of murdering eight men in Rema in 1984) in his 'Let bygones be bygones' meeting, and had declared the Shower Posse leader the protector of his community in 1992 as Seaga walked at the head of Coke's funeral procession, there were no guns in Tivoli Gardens, just doves, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

USAID CP FY97 - Zimbabwe
Despite Zimbabwe's relatively low gross domestic product (GDP) per capita ($520 in 1994), the country has enormous potential. It possesses an educated workforce, a highly diversified economy, and an abundant natural resource base. This potential enhanced considerably in recent years through implementation of an International Monetary Fund-backed economic structural adjustment program that, though not without problems, has put the country on the path toward private sector-led growth. For example, the foreign exchange regime has now been completely unified (the value of the national currency is determined by market ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
The Ohio Employee Ownership Center
It used to be that family businesses were passed down in the family. But family size keeps dropping, and the average business owner's children are far more likely to go to college and to become doctors and lawyers than in the past. While over half of business owners still want the business to stay in the family, data indicate that only 30 percent of family businesses will make it to the 2nd generation and only 15 percent to the 3rd. Worse, only a minority of business owners over the age of 55 - 60 have actually formalized a succession plan. As a consequence, the failure to plan for business ownership ...

When considering humanity, does good truly triumph over evil?
In the broad sweep of human history, I think there has been a general improvement in civilization and morals--not a steady march of progress, mind you, so much as a kind of punctuated evolution, a kind of civilization by attrition.  We live in a global technological culture of unprecedented prosperity and trade that is perched precariously on a system of dire inequality, held in place by exploitative relationships and military hegemony.  In this respect, the great shining light of our Civilization rests upon the rotten foundation of a long human legacy of bad faith... as it always has ...
