  • African American Americans Security Social
    609 words
    Perhaps no group has as much at stake in the debate over Social Security reform as African Americans. Elderly African Americans are much more likely than their white counterparts to be dependent on Social Security benefits for most or all of their retirement income. Yet Social Security benefits are inadequate to provide for the retirement needs of the elderly poor, which leaves nearly 30 percent of African-American seniors in poverty. As the debate over Social Security reform heats up, several q...
  • Earning Gap Between Men And Women
    470 words
    Earnings Gap Earnings gap by gender can be explained by several different theories. Varying on the individual views / opinions some theories may make more sense than others. In my opinion the one theory that best explains this gap between genders is the occupational segregation. There are some occupations that are female, and others that are male. One of the explanations for this is the discontinuity of the female participation / attachment in labor force. During their labor force participation,...

    Since the late 1970 s, social science researchers, the media, private foundations, and policymakers have directed considerable attention to the labor market problems of young adults and their families. Most of this attention has focused on high school dropouts, the poor, minorities, and inner-city youth. But an equally troubling-and broader-problem has received comparatively less notice: the steep and sustained decline since 1973 in the real (inflation-adjusted) earnings of young men and women g...

  • The Myth Of The Earnings Yield
    1,033 words
    Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites A very slim minority of firms distribute dividends. This truism has revolutionary implications. In the absence of dividends, the foundation of most - if not all - of the financial theories we employ in order to determine the value of shares, is falsified. These theories rely on a few implicit and explicit assumptions: (a) That the (fundamental) 'value' of a share is closely correlated (or even equal to) its market (stoc...

  • Gender Gap In Pay

    Social Interaction Of Interest Throughout the 20 th century, there has been a definite difference between men and women and their median income. Studies show that women's median earnings are substantially less than men's earnings. However, this "earnings gap" has started to close recently, bringing the percentage of women's earnings closer to that of the median earnings of men. According to the Census Bureau, the gap stayed relatively constant from 1960 to 1980. From 1980 to 2000 the median of w...

  • Financial Leverage Operating Earnings
    743 words
    Financial leverage is using OPM (Other People's Money) to improve Return On Equity (ROE. ) rather than utilizing owners equity. If a company can borrow money at a rate lower than the return on assets or ROI then the owners' equity position will be improved. This occurs because less of the equity is required to purchase assets. Improving Return on Equity Consider a company who has expected earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of $500, 000 and needs to obtain $1 M in new financing either thro...
  • Barnes Vs Amazon Cash Flow

    Amazon and Barnes and Noble In the decision of investing in Amazon or Barnes and Noble, I recommend neither. Looking at the present state of both companies, neither displays good, strong expectations of profits. Instead, I see both companies with low projected earnings growth ratios and negative cash flow. Projected earnings growth rate, also known as the PEG ratio, is a widely used indicator of a stock s potential value. By some, PEG ratio is favored over the price earnings ratio because it acc...
