Severance Payment and Labor Mobility:A Comparative Study of Taiwan and Japan
Economic Lives shows how shared cultural understandings and interpersonal relations shape everyday economic activities. Far from being simple responses to narrow individual incentives and preferences, economic actions emerge, persist, and are transformed by our relations to others. Distilling three decades of research, the book offers a distinctive vision of economic activity that brings out the hidden meanings and social actions behind the supposedly impersonal worlds of production, consumption, and asset transfer. Economic Lives ranges broadly from life insurance marketing, corporate ethics, household budgets, and migrant remittances to caring labor, workplace romance, baby markets, and payments for sex. These examples demonstrate an alternative approach to explaining how we manage economic activity--as well as a different way of understanding why conventional economic theory has proved incapable of predicting or responding to recent economic crises.
Real estate investing is a risk, no matter what you are considering to purchase or how experienced you are. Real estate note investing is no small purchase and not devoid of risk either, but if you talk to an investor that has ´´been there, done that”, you are bound to hear the same thing you will hear in this book: It is worth it!Real estate note investing means you purchase the loan from a lender, essentially making you the bank. You are not a landlord and do not own the property (yet), so you do not need to do any maintenance or physical labor to flip it for profit, like a hard real estate investment requires. Instead, you collect the mortgage payments and enjoy the monthly passive income for the duration of the note. But what happens when the note is not performing? You can still make money there, and in some cases, more than you would if you bought the loan that has a faithful borrower.There are several considerations you need to review before you dive into an investment this size. Once you have done your due diligence and developed a strategy for success, you can expect to see returns on your investment up to 20 percent in as little as a few months. When you are playing with the big numbers, this can mean some serious income for you!It is not easy finding these notes to buy, or working with borrowers, sometimes, so make sure to commit to memory the phrases and tips outlined in this book to make the interactions and processes smooth and effective. In the chapters of this book, enjoy learning the ´´secrets´´ note investors live by to create a wealth that boosts their bank accounts immediately, and over time, you can achieve this with less effort than a ´´traditional´´ real estate investment requires.Highlights of the book include:A brief overview of exactly what a mortgage note is and how it is soldStrategies on how to invest in notes for the largest return 1.

It´s really true, isn´t it? They say it´s really easy to get a job when you´re already working and don´t need one! When you are unemployed, however, and trying to live on meager unemployment checks it can get scary really fast! The checks won´t cover a house payment or rent, let alone utilities and minor details like food for your kids! What´s a person supposed to do? What happened? Job hunting wasn´t always the stressful task it is today. A guy like your dad or your grandfather worked the same job clear up to retirement. After putting in his 20, 30 or 40 years his boss would give him a gold watch and a pension for his faithful years of service. Sadly, that is no longer the case. Every day we see more and more jobs being eroded by more technology or actually re-assigning your position to someone halfway across the world! Instead of planning on putting in your time then enjoying the fruits of your labor, you are lucky if the job lasts more than a year or so before you get the pink slip that tells you that the company is ´´re-aligning their resources´´ and your position is being eliminated! The problem is that this will hit most people when they least expect it and this process repeats itself every single day across the country. So, what can you do about it? One of the first things you should do is become ´´pro-active´´ instead of ´´reactive.´´ The decision to eliminate your job or lay you off wasn´t made in a day. It´s the result of a process. You just aren´t told about it until it´s too late, leaving you in a bind. We aren´t saying that you should not be loyal to your employer, just never have all your eggs in one basket. Learn how the job hunting process works today and always have a backup plan in place. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Ackley.
