Sometimes it is hard to come by a good health economics web-site which lists resources, press and gives you perspective. You will discover a small number of blogs and forums on the internet yet unfortunately they are likely to publish only their own individual material, composing articles on occasion. Similar web-sites merely feature back links for some other resources and document news without a opinion. For a health economist, health economics scholar, medical practioner or health provider it is sometimes difficult to seek out a web-based learning resource which allows you to remain updated and abreast of what’s going on in the market of HTA. Health Economics Digest is an accomplished web site dedicated to health economics and outcomes research. They offer a regular digest of trusted health economics researches, events and training courses. What’s more, they will also put perspective on the news and present commentary regarding the relevancy of the news to health economics graduates, HTA and Market Access managers. The one thing Health Economics Digest does that’s different to any other health economics website is that it offers rich multi-media material like videos, podcasts and graphics. Health Economics Digest brings the very best of the world wide web and new media to the health economics environment. They provide their news in Rss, PDF and regular monthly email format. Health Economics Digest also make use of social profiles where they chat and discuss with other health outcomes executives. Not only do they review the news, they even make it. Health Economics Digest is the news. In addition to this ,Health Economics Digest is going to be wholly understood by non-health economists, doctors, clinical professionals and payers. This is the reason health economists around the world are using health economics digest as their choice for talking to HTA and Regulatory Organsanisations and non-health economists. Health Technology Assessment Organisations need help grasping heor and pharma firms must discover methods to accurately articulate health economics to non-health economists or it will be challenging to acquire the particular reimbursement they are looking for, specifically in todays economic climate. I highly recommend going over to the site, furthermore; Health Economics Digest is maintained by health economists, for health economists, they have essential up-to-date details on what you ought to know. Along with news and current trends, they also have a health economics book shop and provide health economics workshops and e-learning packages
Whether you have wealth now or anticipate growing your wealth in the future, the developing trend of “share and share alike” in government circles is likely giving you more than just food for thought. In fact, it’s quite possible that the thought fills you with anger, resentment and a burning desire to get out of this impending situation. After all, it’s your wealth, isn’t it? No one helped you develop it, no one held your hand and cherry picked the various investments you made. Therefore, why should the sticky fingers of big government be able to reach into your wallet, pluck out your hard-earned money and give it to someone who never did a thing to better themselves?
While this might sound like a far-fetched story, the evolution of government is moving increasingly towards the “shared” horror that looms on the horizon. While the top 1% of US earners has traditionally shouldered 30% of US taxes, things are bound to get worse. In fact, if current speculation comes to fruition, you could expect to pay up to 50% of your income out to the bloated, self-serving government.
What should you do to keep your wealth for yourself and your family? How can you avoid government interference? Should you just stop paying your taxes? Actually, there are ways around the problem that do not involve breaking the law. Winding up in prison for tax evasion is not a scenario that lends itself to relaxation or enjoyment. However, there are ways that you can increase your wealth, keep the government’s hands out of your bank account and do it all legally.
Asset havens, using the Internet as your electronic haven, finding the right business base for your needs, finding a residence haven and developing dual citizenship can all offer tremendous benefits for your needs. For instance, if you hold a passport to a nation that does not charge taxes on income earned abroad, you can build your wealth easily, without even living in that country. Having a home in a residence haven, such as Bermuda, Panama or one of numerous South American countries, you can save on taxes, as well.
There are considerable ways that you can simplify your life, enjoy the life you want and avoid the hassle of big government, ever greedy to get their fingers on what you have. Building wealth does not have to mean financing government spending when you have the right information.

Bailouts, rescue plans and panic attacks. No way to run a country. Some voters blamed the Bush Administration, others blamed the Democratic congress. No one takes personal responsibility, and no one has a true plan of attack. We, as Americans, are all responsible for the recession that’s heading for a depression. Wallets full of credit cards, gas-guzzling show-off vehicles, home mortgages too high for our incomes and get-rich-quick attitudes have landed us in a quagmire. And now we want lifelines. President Bush admitted in his first day in office that he knew nothing about the economy. Most public servants, CEOs, and politicians don’t know economics and rely, instead, on trusted advisers. Most Americans don’t understand economics either. We rely on financial news networks, newspapers, and word-of-mouth advice. The Bush administration was advised that a bailout plan was necessary and needed immediately or the economy would -tank.- He trusted congressional heat to sign an 850 billion dollar plan that never had any checks and balances and was filled with -pork- to get it passed. The Treasury Secretary and Chairman of the banking committee would handle the details. In response, money was channeled into banks and Wall Street criminals, except taxpayer money didn’t fund the banks to ease credit or allow for guidelines. American money bought shares in these institutions giving us, as investors, no say in what the companies do or don’t do to alleviate this crisis. So banks aren’t loaning, insurance companies are on the Riviera, Wall Street is still in a free fall, and CEOs are still getting rich. Fannie and Freddie? These CEOs took millions and then left to help win a Presidential campaign. Even Mr. Bush tried to warn about the disaster of not regulating these two entities, but a Democratic congress wasn’t interested. So now what? More rescue plans? More planned welfare? There are 330 million people in the United States legally. If ever person got a check for one million dollars, the total cost would be 330 million. Each valid social security number over the age of twenty-one would be allowed to do what they wanted with the million. They could save it in banks, thereby replacing bank funds. They could invest in annuities for retirement and insurance for protection, thereby funding the insurance companies. They could buy the car, computer, ipod, and vacations, thereby increasing consumer spending. They could invest in companies that hire only legal Americans and don’t outsource to other countries. They could feel empowered enough to stop pork barrel spending and may even feel powerful enough to remove those in Congress and the Senate who have forgotten who they work for and why. They could get back to truly owning America and being responsible for everything that happens to their country, becoming small and large business owners with a stake in their company’s future. Three hundred million compared to one trillion and rising. Sounds like a plan.
Jollibee has been among the many fast-food restaurants found in the Philippines that also became one of the biggest fast-food restaurant around the world. From the US and across South East Asian countries, Jollibee has become a mobile restaurant that serves not only the Filipinos expariates but also the foriegn communities that would enjoy a taste native to the Filipinos.
The Jollibee Food Corporation has really become one of the biggest corporation in the Philippines that boasts Filipino ingeniulity across the globe. But what made Jollibee so successful isn’t only because of the brand itself, but because of its expansions and acquisition of other rising fast-food restaurants in the Philippines. These restaurants are Greenwich Pizza (now Greenwich Pizza Corp.), Chowking (now Chowking Food Corp.), Red Ribbon Bakeshop, Dlifrance, and a more recent acquisition Manong Pepe’s.
The company acquired 80% of Greenwich Pizza Corp. in 1994, enabling it to penetrate the pizza-pasta market. From being a 50-branch operation, Greenwich has established a strong presence in the food service industry. In early 2006, Jollibee Foods Corporation bought out the remaining shares of its partners in Greenwich Pizza Corp., equivalent to a 20% stake, for P384 million in cash.
Jollibee acquired Chowking and Red Ribbon Bakery in 2000 and 2005 respectively. By aqcuiring Chowking and Red Ribbon Bakeshop, Jollibee has been allowed to be part of the Oriental quick service restaurant segment and in the cake and pastry industry.
In 2006, Jollibee Food Corporation acquired the franchise of Dlifrance. This further expanded its penetration in the food service industry, particularly in the French cafe-bakery, a growing segment of the Philippine food market. In September of 2006, the company acquired the remaining 50% stake of Delifrance Asia Ltd. in Baker Fresh Foods Phils., Inc. (BFFPI). This means BFFPI is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Jollibee and that the listed food giant has the exclusive rights to operate Delifrance outlets in the country.
The corporate actions in buying out the minority shareholders in Greenwich Pizza (20%) and Delifrance (50%) were the prelude to a plan to integrate the Greenwich Pizza, Chowking, and Delifrance brands under one corporate entity. Under this plan, merging of the subsidiaries would be implemented by having Greenwich Pizza Corp. and BFFPI folded into Chowking Food Corp.
