politica empresarial

La dimensión corporativa constituye el fundamento para el diseño de la política empresarial, en particular en lo que afecta a la política económica de la empresa, esto es, al desarrollo de los criterios y normas por los cuales se asignan los recursos disponibles en esa empresa.

Todos los conocimientos de la política de la empresa como ciencia, así como toda la disposición de destrezas en el aprendizaje, en el manejo de la dirección de recursos y de hombres, sirven para definir las políticas empresariales de la empresa.

Así, toda la política empresarial, como diseño de la asignación de los recursos, descansa, por tanto, en la definición de la institución, de su filosofía y de su cultura empresarial, así como en su estrategia, con el fin de poder establecer los criterios de gestión empresarial.

Por tanto, la política empresarial es resultado de la dimensión corporativa de la empresa, a su vez

Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr.


Edwin Vieira, Jr.,
has condensed into this Monograph the substance of addresses he
has given
to small groups that represent a cross-section of American
citizens concerned
with fundamental monetary and banking reform.

Vieira’s purpose
is to present an analysis of the Federal Reserve System, its fiat
paper currency, and “fractional-reserve” banking that
infrequently, if ever,
appears in the popular press, in the media, in the discourse of
or political candidates, or (worse yet) in the nation’s schools.
This analysis,
however, is crucial to popular understanding of what the Federal
System is, what it does, and the dangers it poses to America’s
economy and
republican institutions of government. And such an understanding
is crucial
to sweeping legislative or

Politics in Cambodia


the 1970s, which a coup ended, a monarchy had ruled
Cambodia since ancient times.  In 1975 when the Khmer
Rouge took over Cambodia, the country was renamed
Democratic Kampochea (DK). The Khmer Rouge is also
responsible for starting a war with Vietnam in 1977.

The Khmer Rouge was overthrown in 1979 by a group of
Cambodian Communist Rebels, backed by 100,000 Vietnamese
troops, who again changed the country’s name.  This
time when they renamed it to the People’s Republic of
Kampochea (PRK), not many foreign governments recognized
the government, thus allowing the DK to keep its place in
the United Nations.

the 1980s Vietnam had troops stationed in Cambodia and
during this period the only legal political party was the
Kampochean People’s Revolutionary Party (KPRP) and ran the
PRK under socialist guidelines.  When Vietnam
withdrew in 1989, Cambodia’s name changed to the State

Globalization of Politics

Picture Credit: UN Photo/Paulo Filgueiras

Traditionally politics has been undertaken within national political systems. National governments have been ultimately responsible for maintaining the security and economic welfare of their citizens, as well as the protection of human rights and the environment within their borders. With global ecological changes, an ever more integrated global economy, and other global trends, political activity increasingly takes place at the global level.

Under globalization, politics can take place above the state through political integration schemes such as the European Union and through intergovernmental organizations such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the World Trade Organization. Political activity can also transcend national borders through global movements and NGOs. Civil society organizations act globaly by forming alliances with organizations in other countries, using global communications systems, and lobbying international organizations and other actors directly, instead of working through their national governments.

Cuban Americans – History, Slavery, Revolution, Modern era, Significant immigration waves


Cuba is an island nation located on the northern rim of the Caribbean Sea.
It is the largest of the Greater Antilles islands. To Cuba’s east
is the island of Hispaniola, shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Off the southeastern coast of Cuba lies Jamaica, and to the north is the
state of Florida. In 1992 Cuba had an estimated population of nearly 11
million. Since 1959, Cuba has been led by President Fidel Castro, whose
socialist revolution overthrew dictator Fulgencio Batista. In the years
before the breakup of the Soviet Union, Cuba maintained a close political
and economic relationship with that nation. Cuba has had a distant and
antagonistic relationship with the United States. Sugar is the principal
export of Cuba, but the Cuban economy, by most accounts, is weak.

The Cuban people are descendants of Spanish colonizers and of

The politics of identity

SHARON SMITH argues that identity politics can’t liberate the oppressed

FIGHTING AGAINST oppression is an urgent issue in U.S. society today. Racism, sexism, and homophobia have all reached appalling levels—that seem only to rise with each passing year. White students in Jena hang nooses, and Black students end up in prison.1 Squads of Minutemen vigilantes patrol the Mexican border with impunity, for the sole purpose of terrorizing migrant communities.2 College campuses across the U.S. commemorate “Islamo-fascism awareness week” as if it were just another legitimate student activity.3 Fred Phelps and his Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church congregation regularly picket outside funerals of gay soldiers killed in Iraq, proclaiming that they belong in hell.4

To be sure, the problem extends way beyond the extremist fringe. Media pundits barely comment on the outrages described above, while

Covert Geopolitics | Beyond the Smoke & Mirrors

In recent weeks, Sultan Erdogan is testing Vladimir Putin’s resolve in defending Syrian sovereignty by sending more Turkish troops to aid the remaining ISIS terrorists at their last stronghold in the Idlib province. Erdogan even complained about what the Russians are doing in the area, as if the region is still under the reign of the Ottoman Empire.

Ex-USMC intelligence officer Scott Ritter wrote this for Russia Today,

New Putin-Erdogan deal is sugar-coating the Turks’ surrender

by Scott Ritter

This week’s meeting between Presidents Putin and Erdogan in Moscow was cast as preventing a war between Russia and Turkey in Syria. War, however, was never on the horizon. Putin called Erdogan’s bluff, and the Turk folded.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, accompanied by their respective senior national security advisers, met in Moscow on March 5. The purpose of this emergency summit was to negotiate the terms

Politics and Lies – Why Politicians Lie

Politicians lie because the public wants to be lied to

The reasons politicians lie is because the public doesn’t want to hear
the truth. People want to hear what they want to hear. When two
candidates are running and one of the tells the truth and the other says
what the public wants to hear, the one who says what the public wants to
hear wins the election. Thus, and there are exceptions to this, if you
want to win an election, you better start lying, because the guy who’s
telling you the truth doesn’t have a chance.

The 1988 presidential election is an example of this. You will recall
the famous lie, “Reeeaaad myyy llliiipsss, nnoooo neeewww taaaxxxeeesss”
was the famous lie that Bush told over and over again. Maybe Bush could
say that the public misunderstood him
