Changing Job Roles - 3,095 words
This paper is the result of research into and reflection on the roles carried out by those who are responsible for managing the 'people' function within organisations. Whether these incumbents are called personnel or HR managers is not necessarily important; it is however critical to give recognition to the complexity of the task that faces those who have to take responsibility for this function. This paper raises two inter-related issues. First, in what sorts of activities do personnel managers decide to invest time and energy? Are the old reliables of recruitment, training and employee relations the key tasks of the 1990s or are other issues more important? Second, does the hard, often uns ...

... duce consumers demand for cars and light trucks. Beyond these effects, consumption demand is lowered by a reduction in the value of household assetssuch as stocks, bonds, and landthat tends to result from higher long-term interest rates. The implications of changes in interest rates extend beyond domestic money and credit markets. Continuing with the example, when interest rates in the United States move higher in relation to those abroad, holding assets denominated in U.S. dollars becomes more appealing, and the demand for dollars in foreign exchange markets increases. A result is upward pressure on the exchange value of the dollar. With flexible exchange rates (rates that fluctuate as ...

... rnational policy. President Bushs loopholes in the 1990 Clean Air Act were by no means the beginning of weakened laws to help further business. After President Carter introduced tougher toxic dumping regulations for corporations, there was a huge increase in illegal midnight dumpings. Soon, exporting toxic waste to the Third World became a sudden growth industry. While it is true that the Carter administration vetoed these kinds of exports for toxic garbage, the ban was soon withdrawn by the Reagan administration. Reagan was very eager to please industry, which crippled the environmental movement. As viewed by most conservationists, the Reagan administration dealt with matters of the env ...

Thomas Dalzell: What are the main factors underlying the weak Canadian dollar vs U.S. dollar. I am thinking not only of the last three points of drop, but the plummet from parity with the U.S. dollar. Sherry Cooper: The Canadian dollar has been in long-term decline since 1975 for many reasons. Most fundamentally, our economy has dramatically underperformed the U.S. since that time. Productivity growth,in particular, has been quite disappointing. More recently, the flow of capital has been to the U.S. Even with a stellar performance in our stock market, most of the record inflow of foreign capital to our stock market has been transacted through U.S. exchanges, not through the TSE.

Globalization has been the theme directing the future. Yet, as Mr. Henry M. Paulson, chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. recently acknowledged, national and regional markets are linked only in precarious ways leading to weak spots within the economy and fueling the possibility for regional or even worldwide financial crises (Peck Ming, 12/8, p.1). In just the past 12 years, three major crises have caused tremors felt around the world. All three examples represent incidences of contagion, or the interaction between financial sector crises and balance-of-payments crises in which a loss of investor confidence may set off vicious cycle of capital flow reversals, a liquidity squeeze and ...

Conflict Resolution In Work Teams - 1,164 words
When you think of conflict in a work group, do you have the image of a bickering group or of people getting nowhere fast? Are you the type of person that would do almost anything to avoid being disagreeable with others? Maybe you view conflict as a constructive part of problem solving.

Leaders who handle problems constructively can improve productivity, generate new ideas and personally develop team members. (Swales, 2002, para. 2). Conflict can cause a work group to expand their views and find options o ...

The Growth Of Democracy - 1,672 words
In 1850, Britain was an undemocratic country. At this time the electoral system divided Boroughs and Counties. Voting qualifications were different in boroughs and constituencies. The vote was only given to men over the age of 21 providing their property was valued at 10 or more, or land was more than 2 per year in rent. Seats were distributed unequally and traditional ruling families usually formed the Cabinet. Furthermore, bribery and corruption were widespread and only the minority of the population were entitled to vote. At this time there was no form of a basic education for the population masses and there was still a lot of power lying within the House Of Lords and not with elected off ...

Traffic And Urban Congestion: 1955-1970 - 1,551 words
In 1960, Great Britain still had no urban freeways. But with the ownership of private cars becoming ever more common, the problem of congestion in British cities was unavoidable.

The accommodation of the full potential is almost certainly beyond any practical possibility of being realized. There is thus no escaping the need to consider to what extent and by what means the full potential is to be curtailed.1. In the decades pr ...

Globalization In The New Century - 887 words
To say that globalization has not encountered its share of dilemmas would be to fool ourselves.

Still in its infancy, globalization has shown an unparalleled capability to reshape foreign economies and multinational business markets; the expansion of the Internet will only extend that influence, not only in economics but also in global politics. At this crossroad of changing policies and technologies, we must be prudent about globalizations effect on foreign societies, identify the risks in expansion through t ...
