The Tyranny of Taxes



If an educational facility has a guaranteed flow money, no matter how poorly they perform, then that facility has absolutely no incentive to provide better quality service at an affordable cost. This will always happen in government school because they know they will get your money no matter what via taxation. People can complain to them all they want about quality or cost of education, but they have zero motivation to change things. They will get your money no matter what, and they know it.

On the other hand, if individuals had the opportunity to choose between private schools, then each school would have to perform at it's best. Schools would compete each other for students. The most innovative and reasonably priced school would be the most popular. The less fortunate children could become students of the private schools through donations. Individuals could donate to the schools of their choice. If a school fails to perform, then individuals can either remove their children from the schools or stop donating to them. This competition between the schools will incentivize each school to provide the best possible service at the most affordable cost.

In the current system, there is very little innovation. The system we have today is based on the Prussian school system from the early 19th century. This is unacceptable. Children do not need to be segregated into groups based on age to become educated. Children don't need to be locked in dreary buildings all day in order to learn. Children don't need to move from classroom to classroom to learn. Learning should be a beautiful and amazing experience for kids. It should not be forced, but instead, it should be encouraged.

So, this is why I would like to see the government out of education. It stifles innovation. It raises costs. Competition is the only way we will even begin to see lower cost of education. Competition is the only way we will see new and amazing methods to educate children. Competition is the only way we will ever achieve the highest quality education. Competition is the only way we will unleash the true brilliance in so many children.

So, yes, even if my children were in public schools, I would still be 100% against any type funding that forces people to participate.

Situational Involvement of Consumers

There are two types of involvement that consumers have with products and services, Situational and Enduring. Situational involvement as the term suggests, occurs only in specificsituations whereas Enduring involvement is continuous and is more permanent in nature.

Decisions to buy umbrellas in India are driven by the onset of Indian monsoon. Monsoon rains arrived in India over the South Andaman Sea on May 10 and over the Kerala coast on May 28, three days ahead of schedule. But then, after a few days of rain, South India is witnessing a spate of dry weather. Temperatures are soaring in the north of India. The Umbrella companies in the state of Kerala are wishing for the skies to open up. So is the farming community and manufacturers of rural consumer products whose product sales depend totally on the farming community. The Met. department has deemed this dry spell as 'not unusual'.

India's monsoon rains have been static over the southern coast since last Tuesday because of a…

Prior Hypothesis Bias

Prior Hypothesis bias refers to the fact that decision makers who have strong prior beliefs about the relationship between two variables tend to make decisions on the basis of those beliefs, even when presented with the evidence that their beliefs are wrong. Moreover, they tend to use and seek information that is consistent with their prior beliefs, while ignoring information that contradicts these beliefs.

From a strategic perspective, a CEO who has a strong prior belief that a certain strategy makes sense might continue to pursue that strategy, despite evidence that it is inappropriate or failing.

Wearing Cuba means Walking Cuba

There's something ethereal about wearing 'Cuba'. Suddenly its the streets of Havana, smoke filled and lit by the groovin', more than the lights. The bars are packed to hilt and dreamy women seem to glide by. The feeling's beyond magical.

How did I get there?

Before I explain, I gotta tell you about the power of brands to take you places. Brands bring with them an ability to prompt you to conjure up the unreal. They can transform your reality into fantasy. And consumers are more than willing partners to brands as the drudgery they face in everyday life begs an injection of fantasy. Brands that operate in a zone of the unreal do the conjuring act as there's nothing else that consumers can call for, while making judgements. For instance, what should I be judging the lip paint on? Its colour and tone or its ability to turn me into a diva?

Cuba's a perfume. The moment I wear it, I am traipsing the streets of Havana. Its smoke filled bars I see. Its music I hear and…
