  • ACA – A Platform for Angel Investment Groups - 8 September 2011
  • Although it is not known for sure who coined the phrase, with some ascribing it to Greek philosopher Plato, it is a universal truth that "necessity is the mother of invention" and difficult situations often inspire innovative solutions. With the job market in the United States showing no convincing evidence of improving, entrepreneurs with vision are taking the initiative to put ideas into action, not only providing an income for themselves and their families, but often generating job opportunities for others. Having an innovative idea is one thing, but getting it going takes capital, and this is where Angel Investors come to the rescue.

  • Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development - 27 September 2010
  • With its headquarters in Paris, France, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has a membership consisting of thirty-three nations, working together to find solutions to common problems.

To this end the OECD provides a platform for representatives of member governments to co-operate and learn from one another in a world that is becoming more of a global village with each passing day. In addition to sharing information between member nations, the OECD also communicates with more than 100 other countries on matters of mutual concern and interest.

  • World's Most Ethical Companies Honored - 24 June 2010
  • In a world where corruption seems to have permeated society on many levels, a growing number of companies are recognizing the value of establishing solid principles of business ethics by which to conduct their day-to-day affairs.

  • The Amsterdam Global Conference on Sustainability and Transparency - 8 February 2010
  • Taking place on 26-28 May 2010, the Amsterdam Global Conference on Sustainability and Transparency will have as its theme: "Rethink. Rebuild. Report." As a Global Reporting Initiative event, the conference will host a gathering of around 1,000 executive decision-makers from a range of firms, as well as governmental policymakers, non-government organizations and civil society. The majority, if not all, of these attendees are already actively participating in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) – a world-wide project setting standards for sustainability, or ecological/carbon footprint, reporting. One of the goals of the GRI is to see the establishment of sustainability reporting by all organizations as a routine requirement, in much the same way as financial reporting is required.

  • Innovation in Business and Stock Investing (Part 1) - 19 December 2007
  • Creative thinking is universally valuable. Executives in large corporations, small and medium business owners, as well as investors of all genres have stocks in discovering new avenues for growth and for delivering value. The path is full of thorns, especially when accountants are around, because so much of innovation appears to be wasteful of scarce resources. Business leaders always search for new efficiencies in their processes of innovation. Some of the most recent thinking on this matter postulates that customer focus and alignment with organization strategy are the best ways to keep research productive and relevant.

  • Who Should Pay Stock Doctor Bills? (Part 1) - 6 December 2007
  • All medicine seeks to arrive at diagnoses, and proceed from there to treatment and management. That is why credit rating agencies and all auditors should be considered as stock doctors. Owners of funds depend on them to find out about the management abilities of entities who bid for funds. Auditors should assure us that our lent resources are used appropriately. What happens at a pre-medical before you finally get a new job? The doctor must assure a prospective employer that you are fit to discharge responsibilities, and that you will not become an unplanned drain on the organization’s stocks. Employers invariably choose doctors for pre-employment checks, and foot the bills as well. This is because an employer cannot take the risk of a nexus between the physician and a prospective employee.
