A Greek crisis cannot be good for the world right now, and we cannot/should not be mute spectators. Here are some reasons why we in Canada in particular, and the rest of the world in general, have to cautiously monitor the current events in Greece, and should try to guide or help Greece get out of the crisis before it becomes contagious. Canada already has internal financial stresses, just like many other countries around the world do, at this moment; this Greek crisis can add to external stress for many countries, and this really is bad timing, and an unwanted occurrence for the world economy.
Canadians may be able to save more in their Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSA) but most are still confused by how the account actually works. Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSA) seemed like a simple concept when it was announced in 2009. Canadians over the age of 18 were allowed to save up to $5,000 per year in a TFSA. But the rules are easily misinterpreted. I know several people who have been hit with overcontribution fines.
On Thursday, July 3, on the eve of a long Fourth of July holiday weekend, Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge landed a sweetheart deal: a provision in the 2015 Wisconsin budget that will serve to expedite permitting for its controversial proposed Line 61 tar sands pipeline expansion project.
In the absence of a complete and total mending, and a reform of Europe itself, from this moment forward the temptation to follow Athen's lead will only increase.
The organization, at large, will eventually need to wake up and realize the very structures that have lasted for decades are inhibiting them and stifling their ability to effectively understand and pay attention to their customers. This is what the market demands. Yet, companies continue to operate under the guise that what's worked for decades can and will subsist.
The business community is absolutely shameless in trying to kill the proposed Ontario Retirement Pension Plan (ORPP). Nearly two-thirds of Ontarians don't have access to workplace pensions plans and many of those who do will only have modest benefits to survive on.
An Ontario Superior Court judge ruled Friday that popular ride-sharing service Uber is not breaking Toronto's taxi laws. Uber and its many fans are rejoicing. Toronto's taxi industry, unusually united from drivers to owners to brokerages, is fuming. And city officials are likely conferring behind closed doors to plot a path forward. Doing nothing seems an unlikely option. I'm not a lawyer, but having worked a while at City Hall, I expect this leaves the city with three basic choices.
By definition, human resources is intrinsically tied to the personnel within an organization. From hiring, to training and administration, people are at the core of HR. It's hard to deny that technology has transformed the way companies approach staffing, with more tools to help find the strongest candidate for a position.
After the success of her 2012 best-seller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, Susan Cain brought together a team to start Quiet Revolution, a company dedicated to "unlocking the power of introverts for the benefit of us all." And now, I'm delighted that HuffPost is joining forces with Quiet Revolution to use all the tools at our disposal to unlock that power and bring these voices and ideas to an even wider audience.
Regardless of your age, your job or your personal interests, the topic of money will always be relevant to you. You've likely heard terms "money management" and "financial literacy" countless times before, and with good reason -- having a clear understanding of your finances is non-negotiable if you hope to have a sound plan for your present and your future.
When I accepted an offer to work in San Francisco South Bay (aka Silicon Valley), I was in for quite a surprise. I lived in East Bay back then. My commute of 35 miles each way didn't seem bad, at least on maps.
DUBLIN -- The decisive nature of the No vote should persuade European leaders to set aside their hopes of forcing regime change and to focus their minds on the practical implications of a Grexit. They need to acknowledge something that is widely accepted: that Greece cannot pay back all of the money loaned by Europe. Pushing Greece towards a euro exit is probably the strategy that will ultimately minimize the return of money to the creditors.
It is important for small business owners to stay on top of the rapidly changing web design trends so that your business stays relevant and continues to convert website visitors into customers.
We all have too much "stuff" in our wardrobe, closets and lives. Sometimes we want to throw it all away. But you can have fun and recoup a few dollars if you use eBay's platform to sell online. If you have an email and Paypal accounts, you're already half way done.
Investing five minutes into reading this [pst may end up being your equivalent to investing in Apple in 1980. I recently sat down with Kevin O'Leary, the entrepreneur, investor, journalist, author, and financial commentator best known as Mr. Wonderful.
Large media conglomerates are piling on the pressure to ban these privacy protection services for any domains used for "commercial purposes". They're trying to make it even easier to access people's private contact information, so that they can sue domain owners who they accuse of copyright infringements.
The documents, along with the analysis, highlight the way that the TISA responds to major corporate lobbies' desire to deregulate services, even beyond the existing World Trade Organization rules. This leak exposes the corporate aim to use TISA to further limit the public interest regulatory capacity of democratically elected governments.
It comes as no surprise that Canadians like their local breweries and prefer Canadian beer -- plenty of which will be enjoyed this coming Canada Day. Beer, second to local food, tops the list as the product most Canadians prefer to buy Canadian, according to a new study by Ebates.ca. The decision to purchase Canadian products extends beyond economic benefits. Successful businesses can also give back to the community through sponsorship, charity and contributions to the arts, culture and sports, and locally sourced products means a reduced carbon footprint.
The referendum, before being conducted, unfortunately released the darkest aspects and features of Greek political socialization. It reinstated divisive reasoning in the public sphere, divided society into two camps with no diffusion and without any room for common ground.
