After more than a decade of negotiation, The Heads of State of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) signed the Framework Agreement on South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA) at the twelfth SAARC Summit at Islamabad in January 2004.* The signing of the Framework Agreement on South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA), represented a major pragmatic initiative by the South Asian leaders to address the issues of trade and development in the region. However, the slow process and limited progress of SAFTA has led some scholars to argue that SAFTA is unlikely to succeed. Instead, these scholars argue that SAFTA is hardly ...
Falling Back On Waterloo « The Baseline Scenario
which would have capped the size and leverage of our largest banks – was defeated in the Senate last night, 33-61.  Feeling ascendant, the big banks swarm forward to take on their next foe – the Kanjorski amendment (that would greatly strengthen the power of regulators to break up megabanks), which they plan to gut in the backrooms. This is overconfidence – because the consensus against them is beginning to shift significantly.  Partly this is the result of great efforts by Senator Ted Kaufman, Senator Sherrod Brown, and their colleagues over recent months and weeks.  Partly this is due to all the people who came on board ... market research, surveys and trends
Two Beers With Steve Podcast
Have we come to the tipping point of exponential growth or do we still have room to run? If we have more room to run, then how much further out is the tipping point? These are serious questions that we should be asking. The conversation needs to be started and Dave Gardner is trying to put it on the agenda. With his soon to be released film 'Hooked On Growth", filmaker David Gardner asks the question that no one wants to hear, 'Do we really want/need more growth?'. In this hard hitting interview with Dave Gardner we dissect the side effects of an unsustainable growth path. While it is very true that ... market research, surveys and trends


Private Equity Fundraising in the Current Economy
describes the dramatic shift from "the golden age" of private equity investing, in recent years, to the dire situation facing general and limited partners today. To put the drop off in some perspective, the most recent data from Preqin shows that total fund raising for private equity in the first quarter of 2009 totaled just $49 billion. This compares to $161 billion raised during the first quarter of 2008, a year-over-year decline of nearly 70 percent. Of course, the figures are subject to the usual vagaries of private equity markets, most notably, the number of funds in the market and the types of funds being raised ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Hard Assets in Latin America - Thunderbird School of Global Management
In the year and a half since the start of the global financial crisis, many investors and professional capital managers came to the harsh realization that they had been operating without a valid concept of risk/reward, which is critical to any investment decision. Exotic derivatives had been created, analyzed, rated, and traded that often times neither the seller nor the buyer fully understood. Many of the assets that the trusted rating agencies reviewed and classified as investment grade incredibly plummeted in value overnight. At the same time, numerous investors achieved impressive returns based on the overheated market ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

There is definitely a double standard. Carly Fiorina, for example, ruined Hewlett-Packard and was lauded as a great CEO. Finally she was pushed out with a $45 million parachute. Great news for California though as she's running for the Senate. Political correctness has run amok and it's not good for the country and frankly an insult. A woman should get a CEO job or other high position because she's qualified and not because she's a woman. posted 2 months ago Immunologist, Microbiologist, Organizer see all my answers Best Answers in: Using LinkedIn (8), Internationalization and Localization (3), Ethics (3), ...

I just received my brand new laptop from Dell. I am connecting to the wireless network, but I am unable to connect to any websites. I have three (linked) questions: According to this page, On the Road was adapted to radio for France Culture. I'd like to get my hands on a recording of this. I looked for a while, but Radio France doesn't seem to provide a way to buy radio shows on disc, and it looks like it was only aired once. I have a crazy idea involving my washing machine, its outflow, and my garden, but there's a little problem involving suds... I'm thinking of writing a business book. My dilemma is that ...
