  • Anthony Giddens. Europe in the Global Age
    Europe in the Global Age
    Anthony Giddens
    Europe 's social model - its system of welfare and social protection - is regarded by many as the jewel in the crown. It is what helps to give the European societies their distinctive qualities of social cohesion and care for the vulnerable. Over recent years, however, the social model has come under great strain in many states within the European Union - unemployment, for example, remains stubbornly high. The resulting tensions have fuelled dissatisfaction with the European project as a whole, culminating the rejection of Europe 's proposed new constitution.Reform of the social model is therefore a matter of urgency. It has to go hand in hand with the quest to regenerate economic growth. The weaker performers in Europe over the past few years can learn a good deal from states that have coped more effectively. But more radical changes need to be contemplated in the face of the impact of globalization, rapidly increasing cultural diversity and changing demography. The author argues...

    Factors limiting small business success
    Enock Nkonoki
    The aim of this study was to determine the factors that limit the growth/and or success of small businesses in Tanzania and to try and suggest solutions to these factors.

The author saw it as a merit to group the results into two groups; limiting factors that are internal to the firm and those that are external to the firm.The author concludes by making following main recommendations; firstly a reform of the SME policy by the government, a search of an adequate business education by the small business community and trying to develop services and the maintenance of good relationships with small business owners by other stakeholders like the financial institutions.

  • Robert S. Frey. Increasing Your Success as a Small Business Leader
    Increasing Your Success as a Small Business Leader
    Robert S. Frey
    What leaders think they are good at (self-efficacy) influences their decisions about allocating resources within their small organizations. Data analyzed from 577 U.S.-based small business leaders indicate that knowing a business owner’s perceived area of self-efficacy improves the ability to predict that owner’s allocation of resources. Results of this study can be applied to developing a decision-making model with significant practical application. This model might be leveraged for such key business decisions as hiring, budgeting, staffing, controlling general and administrative costs, and outsourcing decisions. The key is for leaders in small companies to learn to rely on others with proven expertise and hands-on experience in business areas outside of their particular sphere of self-perceived expertise. They would benefit from developing a balanced organization that includes a cross-section of business infrastructure knowledge within their management team. Small business...

    Promoting Post Start-up Small Businesses
    Asoka Gunaratne
    The challenges facing entrepreneurial owner-managers (OMs) in developing countries have never been greater than today. These businesses are typically hampered by lack of technical skills, managerial competencies, and financial resources. Now they compete not only with other businesses in the same street, district, town, region, or home country but also with global companies operating beyond their home market. Within this context, this book acquaints the reader with the challenges faced by OMs in developing countries and the pragmatic, creative approaches these entrepreneurs use to overcome the barriers to their survival and growth. The book presents a ‘wish list’ of assistance these OMs hope will result through the wise adoption of appropriate policy by their domestic governments. However, many fail to survive the first few years of their struggle for existence. Accordingly, the book presents detailed results derived from a study of small businesses in Sri Lanka. The study identifies...
