Greece's parliament begins today to debate a deeply unpopular austerity plan, which international lenders are demanding to see approved this week to avert the threat of bankruptcy. Without approval for the measures, the EU & IMF say they will not disburse the fifth tranch of Greece's 110bn euro bailout programme. US CONSUMER spending probably rose in May at the slowest pace in almost a year, reflecting fewer new-car purchases and dimmer employment prospects, economists said before the Commerce Department’s spending report due out today. CHINA’s premier Wen Jiabao said that the country can keep full-year inflation within 5%, affirming forecasts that price gains in the country will slow in the second half from the fastest pace in almost three years. MARKETS: EUROPEAN shares are set to dip today, extending an eight-week losing run and mirroring weakness in Asian equities, as uncertainty over the outcome of a Greek vote on austerity measures kept investors cautious. The Nikkei and Hang Seng indexes fell sharply overnight, as Eurozone…

Welke bron waardeert u het meest?

Toegang tot enorme hoeveelheden informatie is de nieuwe norm geworden. Toegang tot nuttige informatie die een aantoonbare indruk heeft op ons leven en uiteindelijk onze carrières, is een compleet andere uitdaging, aldus Walt Hawtin. Wat is relevant en wat zijn slechts roddels? Wat zou ik moeten negeren en waarop zou ik moeten reageren? Mijn dochter heeft het moeilijk met het begrijpen dat het nieuws dat ze op TV ziet, of in de krant leest, niet altijd de ‘waarheid’ is. Voor een tienjarige is de waarheid een belangrijk concept. Het is interessant om te zien hoe een kind de wereld probeert te interpreteren, terwijl de volwassenen haar tegelijkertijd waarschuwen niet alles te geloven wat ze hoort of ziet op het nieuws. Ons nieuws komt voor het grootste gedeelte van een secundaire of tertiaire bron. Erg weinig authentiek nieuws komt daadwerkelijk van de primaire bron, ook wel te beschrijven als de bron die bij de gebeurtenis aanwezig is. Onlangs was er een radio interview tussen een Australische…

GREECE has agreed on the details of a five-year austerity plan with EU and IMF inspectors hoping to steer the country away from bankruptcy. Greece’s new finance minister Evangelos Venizelos met with a delegation of EU and IMF officials in Athens yesterday to discuss�measures for extra tax rises and spending cuts to plug a 3.8bn funding gap. Private sector activity slowed in Europe and China this month, according to data yesterday, which suggests a global slowdown is becoming more entrenched. The Eurozone private grew only modestly and, without the support of Germany and France, it would have shrunk. China’s factory sector barely expanded even as inflation eased, purchasing managers’ indexes showed. The data come a day after the Federal Reserve said the US pace of recovery was advancing more slowly than it had expected. MARKETS: European shares are set to rebound from multi-month lows hit in the previous session, after Greece reached a deal more money in return for austerity measures in a bid to…

The US FED has again cut its growth forecasts for the US economy, predicting that the US economy would expand between 2.7% and 2.9% this year, weaker than it expected just two months ago. Unemployment, meanwhile, will stay above 8% throughout next year in a prediction that will depress President Barack Obama, who is already on the back foot over the sluggish economy. The new forecasts come as the Fed confirmed that its second, controversial round of quantitative easing would end this month and as it pledged to keep the US interest rates at between 0% and 0.25% for an extended period. EUROPEAN finance chiefs will decide on July 3rd whether Greece has met conditions for the next aid payment. Investors are watching to see if the ministers will clear the payment or prolong the uncertainty in a bid to increase pressure on the country’s lawmakers. MINUTES from the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee, released yesterday, appear to have ruled out any normalisation of…

Ross Perlin ha escrito recientemente un libro titulado “Intern Nation” (Nación becaria), en el que explica: “En la mayoría del mundo desarrollado, existe una presión que obliga a la juventud a realizar prácticas de trabajo”. Las prácticas de trabajo se han expandido a todos los sectores de todos los países, y ya no son exclusivas al sector de la medicina, como antiguamente. Perlin visitó Disney World, Florida, donde hace treinta años y debido a la escasez de trabajadores, Disney contactó a varias universidades americanas con el objetivo de que les cediesen estudiantes para trabajar en sus instalaciones a…

London 2012 organiser Locog is to launch a major campaign to inform brands how it will clamp down on ambush marketing in the build-up to the Olympic Games.

While 46% of the 1300 adult respondents surveyed by OnePoll said they had thought about leaving Facebook, or had already left, that number increased to more than 50% when focusing on the over-45s.

In Badehose und Flipflops zum Top-Job

Unternehmen werben inzwischen hart um Top-Talente - und setzen dabei auf ungewöhnliche Bewerbungs-Events. Mithilfe von Autos, Sport und Musik als Lockmittel wollen sie die richtigen Kandidaten herausfiltern. Unternehmen auf Mitarbeitersuche beschäftigen sich derzeit verstärkt mit kreativem Recruitment. Vor allem aus der Erkenntnis heraus, dass die Berufseinsteiger von heute lange nicht mehr mit dickem Gehalt, Dienstwagen und Eckbüro zu ködern sind. Die Absolventen dieser Tage wollen Herausforderungen, eine ausgewogene Work-Life-Balance und einen Arbeitgeber, bei dem Nachhaltigkeit und Unternehmenskultur keine Unbekannten sind. Doch auf Absolventenmessen oder Infoabenden lässt sich ausgerechnet das nur schlecht zeigen. An der Katholischen Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt gibts deshalb die Summer Challenge der wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät (WFI). Thema des langen Wochenendes am Baggersee von Ingolstadt: Recruting einmal sportlich! Kleiner Unterschied zu ähnlichen Veranstaltungen: Hier organisieren die Studenten das Recruiting-Event. Ihre Vorstellung vom Kontakteknüpfen zu potenziellen künftigen Arbeitgebern beinhaltet: Strandsport und Freizeitaktivitäten, Sonne, Shorts und viel Gemeinsamkeit. BWL-Studenten von mehr als zehn Universitäten in Deutschland werden vorab informiert und können sich anmelden - für Bewerbungsgespräche mit den…
