Making Money Off Complaints

...Making money off complaints One software company holds weekly staff meetings to build morale and allow for status reports from each department. One part of their meetings is the report on how many customer problems they rectified the past week. If the number increased, the group was given praise. When asked why they praise increased problem calls, as opposed to working to fix those problems in the software or documentation, the owner said that they charge for each call, so it is a way to increase their income. In other words, instead of making the customer completely satisfied with the product, they preferred some dissatisfaction, so they could fix the problem and make extra money from it. This software package was a high-ticket, expensive application that was mainly sold to small companies. They also charged $50 for a user manual for the software. Since the customers made a substantial investment in the software, they wanted to continue using it. But I wonder how much ill-will was created, even if the application usually performed well. Complaints that fall on deaf ears Have you ever experienced poor service or purchased a defective product and complained about it, only to have your complaints fall on deaf ears? Many companies that have plenty of business feel they don’t need to bother with complainers. These businesses become very independent, especially if they have a product or service in demand. Some continue to succeed, even though they ignore customer......

Money and Its Functions

...Money and its Functions Money is something which is generally accepted in payment for goods and services and in settling debts. Historically, many commodities, ranging from precious metals to cigarettes, have been used as money. In prisoner-of-war camps, cigarettes served as money. In the nineteenth century money was mainly gold and silver coins. These are examples of commodity money, ordinary goods with industrial uses (gold) and consumption uses (cigarettes) which also serve as a medium of exchange. The value of commodity money comes from a commodity out of which it is made. In most modern societies, however, commodities are rarely used as money because they are expensive. Instead, they use fiat money, that is mainly paper currency issued by governments and deposits in checking accounts that are accepted as a means of payments for goods and services. Fiat money is sometimes called token money. By collectively agreeing to use fiat money, society economizes on the scarce resources required to produce money as a medium of exchange. The essential condition for the survival of fiat money is the restriction of the right to supply it. Private production is illegal. Society enforces the use of fiat money by making it legal tender. The law says it must be accepted as a means of payment. Up to 1931, paper money was backed by a reserve of gold and any settlement of international debts were settled by the transfer of gold from one country to another. Today, most national......

The Theories of Making Money

...The Theories on Making Money There has always been a debate over whether socialism or capitalism is the most prosperous economical system. Throughout the years there have been several theories which show favoritism to each system, and with each of these theories there are the opponents. As the debate raged on, the countries that were opposed to one system or the other now use some portion of each system. In 2013 even countries like China and North Vietnam, who are socialist states, are applying forms capitalism and countries like the United States have adopted socialist practices. While explaining the difference between capitalism and socialism we will find out that as the world mixes with each other personally they will also mix economically by convergence. While researching these two topics I found that there is one major factor that each economical system has in common. Governments have chosen to use these systems to rule the people of their countries. It doesn’t matter what each systems in tells, the common factor was that the governments that uses each system believes that it is the only system to use. The differences between capitalism and socialism are so great that entire countries would not use the others system due to past beliefs. Socialism is based on the beliefs that government owns the means of production, which reduces the need for competition between companies. It is intended to provide goods to all people at a reasonable price regardless...

Doris Whitney looked around the bedroom for the last time to make certain that the pleasant room, grown dear over the past thirty years, was neat and tidy. She opened the drawer of the bedside table and carefully removed the gun. It was shiny black, and terrifyingly cold. She placed it next to the telephone and dialed her daughter's number in Philadelphia. She listened to the echo of the distant ringing. And then there was a soft "Hello?" "Tracy... I just felt like hearing the sound of your voice, darling." "What a nice surprise, Mother." "I hope I didn't wake you up." "No. I was reading. Just getting ready to go to sleep. Charles and I were going out for dinner, but the weather's too nasty. It's snowing hard here. What's it doing there?"

Meetings were held at the U.N. to create awareness and begin preventative measures necessary for future generations. The results were meet with denial and financial strains it could cause. Commencing the meeting signs shortly started to become evident. At the headland the center in Scotland, were observatory research is conducted, they noticed a boy has a temperature drop of 14 degrees. At first it was assumed as a malfunction, but then the next day a second signaled the same thing off coast of Greenland. These signs are as remote as seeing Elvis. Then the third one suddenly in Japan had hail the size of small softballs and was falling from the sky. In Mexico hurricanes that have never been experienced anywhere tore through it like scissors on paper. A paleontologist and the director of the headland center dialoged and conducted that all northern states in America must be evaluated but as even today the powers that be won’t take heed.

Good Money After Bad

...Christian Harbinson is an associate at Scharfstein Weekes (SW), a venture capital firm based in Palo Alto and specialised in Medical instrument industry. Harbinson joined the company 6 months ago and is responsible for covering the $600,000 investment (out of a $100m fund) in Seven Peaks Technologies (SP), a company that has developed an innovative cauterizer used for electro surgery. Jack Brandon, the founder of SP, has developed a new cauterizer that is faster and more reliable than currently available technologies. Its main feature is that it does not stick to tissues during the cauterizing process, contrary to other similar products available in the market. Brandon has invested $65k of his own money in the development of the product before he approached SW to raise capital. The product received good feedback from surgeons and got the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approval for launch in the market. Nevertheless, the product’s sales have been disappointing. The life duration of the product is too long; consequently there is no opportunity for reordering the product and distributors are not willing to market it as the sales are not recurring. As a result, Brandon wants to develop a new product. He thinks there is a demand for new electrosurgical forceps that would use the same technology used in the cauterizer. The advantage of the forceps market is that surgeons use between 6 and 8 of them in every surgery. Thus the addressable market is much bigger. The product...

Good Money After Bad

...Question: Should Harbinson recommend further investment in Seven Peaks? This case depicts a typical scenario of any venture capital firm which makes investment in an early stage company. The entrepreneur, Jack Brandon, did demonstrate proof of concept with his titanium-alloy technology for cauterizing; but didn’t even define the commercial viability. Further he introduced more complexity by adding a forceps project to the initial cauterizer project. The investing partners will obviously set high targets for the new money that’s being demanded which will in turn sour the 18 month relationship between Christian Harbinson and Jack Brandon. To begin with, it is necessary to answer the following questions – the opportunity cost of not reinvesting for new project in Seven Peaks, the market size (in units per year), price elasticity, are these premium products that could outsell the existing ones because of superior performance? In my opinion, Brandon should be looking to launch a new and improved version of his cauterizer before exploring the forceps idea. Once it’s a successful product he can consider the cross-selling synergies that would arise from marketing forceps. It has been quite clear that Brandon is not a marketing expert and that why the first product didn’t reach the desired level of success. Seven Peaks essentially need marketing specialists. Harbinson himself needs to take initiative to develop Brandon’s entrepreneurial capabilities. He ask a time period of say 3......

...guidelines for the secure use of social media technologies within the Federal Government and provides recommendations for the creation of a government-wide policy for social media. This may require the re-education of senior management officials, as barriers are often perceived to be technology issues rather than communications, policy, strategy, or management issues. The senior technology official at each federal agency should develop a social media communications strategy, with the support of their communication office, that accurately addresses the guidelines in this document in conjunction with government-wide policy[5]. Finally, the decision for a Federal department or agency to engage with social media must be a risk-based decision making process, made using strong business justifications that identify mission requirements and drive toward an expected outcome through social media use[1]. The decision to engage or not to engage in social media use should not be made by the IT department alone, rather it should come from a risk management process made by the management team with inputs from all players, including the CIO, CISO, Office of General Counsel(OGC), Office of Public Affairs (OPA), Privacy official and the mission owner[1]. This document will outline the use cases for social media in the federal space, some of threats within this space, and some compensating controls to reduce these threats. All these should be considered as inputs to the risk management......

The Business of Making Money

...The Business of Making Money So you want to make more money, but you don’t know how? This might be the response of most business owners in America today. In taking this course I learned what’s been referred to as King rule, that is, total revenues-total cost= profit. That’s how we make decisions in the business world. It’s so simple and efficient. Because we wake up every morning for money, it’s important to know how to get money. It’s essential to understand the equation and that is why I see it only fitting to discuss King rule in this assignment. Whether you’re a merchant or in a service based business basic principles of accounting and economics hold true. Those principles make up the King rule equation. Business owners are constantly looking for growth to increase their profit. Growth in business is measured from the sales/services provided by company. Simply, sell more and you will make more money. This truth leads owners into thinking that they must increase sells to make more money. But that’s only part of the equation; there is the cost variable that needs to be accounted for. If the business cuts it’s cost, profits will increase as well. This is very simple math and an easily understood concept. The question I raise is, which is more important? I think many business owners want to increase their sales because they see bigger numbers that way. The bigger the numbers, the more money you make! So if you’re working to make money (all of us are), then increasing...

Americans and Money

...Americans and Money Today Americans are generally becoming more irresponsible with their money. In some cases Americans are spending more money than they make in a year. This is partly due to not having a budget, bad spending habits, credit card debt and impulsive purchases. Some Americans are also not saving money for incidents or emergencies. For instance the primary vehicle breaks down. There is no savings, what will he or she do? Get a loan? Use the credit card? Or perhaps borrow money? By not having a savings this will cause the person to be in debt. Because of the ease of obtaining credit cards and convenience Americans have generally become more irresponsible with their money. It can be easy for Americans to get into a large amount of credit card debt. After acquiring one credit card with a low credit limit the card holder can make a small purchase, then make small monthly payments on the amount charged. After making the on time payments, the credit company will often raise the credit limit allowing a larger dollar amount to be charged. This is fine, as long as the credit card holder continues to make the monthly payments. As the monthly payments are made the credit card holder’s credit score is on the rise. This could raise the limit on the card so that a larger amount can be charged on the card. This will also give the credit card holder more chances to apply for new credit cards. Some Americans can end up with more than five different credit cards, allowing......

Making Money from Football

...Making money out of football Stefan Szymanski[1] Stephen Hall The Business School, Imperial College London April 2003 Abstract: In the US most economists have argued that professional sports teams are profit maximising businesses, but it is a widely held view in Europe that professional football clubs are not run on a profit maximising basis. This belief has important implications for the impact of policy measures such as income redistribution that are widely advocated. This paper looks at the performance of sixteen English football clubs that acquired a stock exchange listing in the mid 1990s. If the European story is true, we should have observed a shift toward profit maximising behaviour at these clubs. This paper finds no evidence of any shift in this direction. This result is consistent with the view that football clubs in England have been much more oriented toward profit objectives than is normally allowed. Keywords: economics of sport, objective functions JEL classification number: L21, L83 We thank to Dirk Nitzsche for assistance with data collection. We thank Peter Sloane and seminar participants at the CARR Outreach workshop on business history for helpful comments. “Those clubs which have floated to become public companies – Manchester United, Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Tottenham- now have as their principal objective the making of money for their shareholders.” -David......

The Day After Tomorrow

...The movie, The Day After Tomorrow, is actually about the issue of global warming which caused the temperature to increase the earth’s atmosphere  where polar ice caps are melting and thus, increasing the water levels of oceans. Then flooding occurs, and other climatic disturbances occur all over the world as well. This sets the stage for a new Ice Age. At first, I thought it’s a movie about weather, dramatic and a disaster movie. It provides suspense and a prediction of a climate shift which is going to happen again after 10,000 years.  The way the movie portrayed global warming and other disastrous events were extreme and not very believable. Some of the information is backed up by science but most is completely off the wall and nonrealistic. The movie cited the cause of the global climate change to be the rise in temperature due to greenhouse gasses. According to the movie, the warmer temperatures caused the polar ice caps to melt, and the increased amount of water in the ocean disrupted the North Atlantic Current. The North Atlantic Current is what is responsible for the warm temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere. With the current disrupted the Northern Hemisphere went into an ice age. In real life, the polar ice caps are melting, but at a rate not even close to that of the one represented in the movie. There is no way that the ice would melt so quickly that a change that drastic would be made. Another major issue I had with the movie was its temperature......
