The most recent growth period occurred during the mid-l960 and early 1970 when there was a ...

LA SOLIDARIDAD: Filipino Employee/Laborer's Worst Nightmare: The ...
How often do we hear about “evil” foreign employers as the justification for protectionism? I find that hard to believe because in general, when it comes to employee compensation and benefits – Filipino companies are worse than foreign companies. Note that there are companies with foreign-sounding names but whose owners are majority Filipino. Oftentimes, the foreign partners want compliance with rules and regulations – the local partners will boast about “connections” and “cost-cutting”… at a price of course. To maximize revenue, the local partners (being the ... market research, surveys and trends

Has Electric Deregulation Helped or Hurt Texans?
Since 1999, when then-Gov. George Bush signed a law that deregulated the Texas electricity market, a debate has raged about whether and how much the move has benefited ordinary Texans. Deregulation aimed to introduce market competition as a way to increase options to consumers and force down prices. Clearly, the ramifications hardly have broken down so simply, and some believe the industry and large industrial customers have benefited more than the workaday electric consumer — who generally pays rates higher than the national average. Last week, the Legislature's Sunset Advisory Commission, which is currently ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
