Richard Russell: Bear Market to Last Another 15 Years to 2027

Richard Russell: Bear Market to Last Another 15 Years to 2027 | International Business 2012 | Scoop.it

Chapter 4, Section 2.1: Bear Market

Today the Godfather of newsletter writers, Richard Russell, shocked King World News with this remarkable and extremely dire prediction: “The primary bear market -- the leveraging and inflation and lying and cheating and shenanigans lasted from 1945 to 2007, about 62 years. My guess is that it will require maybe one-third of that time or roughly 20 years to clean out the economic stupidity and nonsense of those 62 years. That could take this bear market out to the year 2027.”

UN Global Compact Has Expelled Over 3,000 Companies | 3BL Media | International Business 2012 | Scoop.it

Chapter 5, Section 3.2:UN global compact:

(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) New York, NY - February 9, 2012 - The UN Global Compact has expelled a total of 3,123 companies since 2005 for failure to communicate progress on their efforts to implement the UN Global Compact’s ten sustainability principles.
In response to this development, the Global Compact Office today issued the following statement:
We stand at a major crossroads in terms of the business contribution to solving the most urgent global issues. The UN Global Compact today counts more than 10,000 participants, including over 7,000 businesses, many of whom are working actively to advance greater environmental and social sustainability in the spirit of the initiative’s ten universal principles.
But the fact remains that a large majority of the world’s businesses have not yet made any commitment to universal corporate sustainability principles, draining our planet’s resources, hindering sustainable development and directly or indirectly exacerbating many of the challenges we face.

This is about people, not texts – a translator ethics seeks to embrace the intercultural identity of the translatory subject, in its full array of possible actions.
Based on seminars originally given at the Collège International de Philosophie in Paris, this translation from French has been fully revised by the author and extended to include highly critical commentaries on activist translation theory, non-professional translation, interventionist practices, and the impact of new translation technologies. The result takes the traditional discussion of ethics into the way mediators can actively create cooperation between cultures, while at the same time addressing very practical questions such as when one should translate or not translate, how much translators should charge, or whose side they should be on.

On Translator Ethics offers a point of reference for the key debates in contemporary Translation Studies.

This Chart From The 70s Gold Bull Market Will Shock People

This Chart From The 70s Gold Bull Market Will Shock People | International Business 2012 | Scoop.it

Chapter 4, Section 2.1: Bull Market

"Today 40 year veteran, Robert Fitzwilson, wrote the following piece exclusively for King World News. Fitzwilson, who is founder of The Portola Group, put together a fascinating look at the gold bull market of the 1970s and contrasted that with what investors should look for in this bull market. ...

 

"... From 1969 to 1974, we saw a virtual ceiling on the price of Newmont followed by a severe decline ending in March of 1978. No doubt that there were far fewer stalwarts holding onto their positions after going through that brutal correction.

 

"For those who were not scared out of the bull market, but rather held on because of their convictions, they were now in for the ride of their life. Newmont bottomed at $10.13 in early 1978 and rose virtually straight up for almost 4 years before the price peaked.

 

"Going forward we will see massive moves to the upside in the metals and the mining stocks. ..."

How Do You Change An Organizational Culture? A model view of leadership influence.

How Do You Change An Organizational Culture?  A model view of leadership influence. | International Business 2012 | Scoop.it

Chapter 3, Section 1.2: Organizational Culture:

Via Forbes, one of the more fruitful success strategies make full use of leadership tools, including a vision or story of the future and lessen use of  power tools of coercion and fear.

 

The constructs of interlocking systems of tools in three groups is a useful thinking piece, perhaps as a diagnostic as well as a change planning model to review where planning may have weaknesses in adapting to change.

 

_________________________________

   
Single-fix changes such as teams, Lean, or Agile... may appear to make progress, but eventually the interlocking elements of organizational culture take over.

_________________________________

 

  

Excerpts:

Changing an organization’s culture is one of the most difficult leadership challenges. That’s because an organization’s culture comprises an interlocking set of goals, roles, processes, values, communications practices, attitudes and assumptions.

The elements fit together as a mutually reinforcing system and combine to prevent any attempt to change it. Single-fix changes such as teams, Lean, or Agile / Scrum, or knowledge management or some new process may appear to make progress, but eventually the interlocking elements of organizational culture take over. The existing organizational culture returns.


…the most fruitful success strategy is to begin with leadership tools, including a vision or story of the future, cement the change in place with management tools, such as role definitions, measurement and control systems, and use the pure power tools of coercion and punishments as a last resort, when all else fails.
