EURO-AMERICAN BANKRUPT COMPANIES ARE LEPERS, ASIANS BE WARY!
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
Leper Companies, Inc. could very well describe the so many huge corporate entities in the West that are now expectantly waiting for some investors to breath fresh life into them. The compass of that search points to Asia as the source of the badly needed ‘smart money’.
What a mess indeed had Western economies turned into, as their respective enterprises have been crashing to… Continue

Unusual Uncertainty and the Strange, Well-Maybe Recovery of 2010 – Part 1
It's been many a month since I've posted anything here at "The Spirit/Money Split,"
(at Good-B) and I'm happy to be back.
Mostly, I've been busy wrestling my own small business out of recessionary white water and into a fast-moving but navigable stream of now nearly a full year in positive cash flow. I had some expert helping lifting our bottom line, for… Continue

USA’S LEADERSHIP HAD EVAPORATED, WHY OUGHT STOCK MARKETS FOLLOW?
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
Good day fellow global citizens!
It’s late afternoon here in the Philippines, daylight is still around though quite faded a bit. The time of the day seems to be delivering the message that there is still some light in the global economy, and that is a feel-good ambience.
Light there may be for the global economy, but that light no longer comes from the Western… Continue

RURAL DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE TOP PRIORITY WORLDWIDE
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
Good evening from the Philippines’ highland suburbs!
For this note I will focus on the thesis that rural development should be pursued by developing countries. The world’s nations have pursued growth that has been badly skewed towards urbanization and commercialization since after World War II, a total effort that has seen many people become poor as a result. Most of the poor folks are in… Continue

It has been said that there are two broad kinds of people in the world - givers and takers.
The givers ask what’s in me for you?
The takers ask what’s in it for me?
I think we are all givers and takers. Intention is what differentiates.
The poet Gita Bellin says “Success depends on where intention is.”
I couldn’t agree more.
I meet lots of people who have been takers all their lives. They are generally very unhappy people. They want and get… Continue

CSR networks and communities (Corporate Social Responsibility) are growing rapidly. But still for most companies, measuring corporate social responsibility is complex; for many it's confusing and daunting.
Key Learnings over time:
- It is essential that companies choose guidelines and standards that reflect their business, culture and stakeholder needs and that provide information that helps the company find 'meaning' in its measurement results.
- Companies should not… Continue

EURO-OLIGARCHS’ SLASH FUNDS AWASH AMID EU’S BANKRUPTCY
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
Good evening from the Philippine suburbs!
I wish Europeans could find sufficient reason to brighten themselves up these days. Maybe the northern Europeans can still find some reason to smile in the light of welfare state graces still flowing to their pockets, while those of southern Europe’s are grilling in the heat of a continent burning in economic firestorm.
Europe is… Continue
