Exploring Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a complex mental illness that resembles a cluster of symptoms from various other illnesses. To make matters more complicated, there are several different types of schizophrenia featuring what are termed as positive or negative symptoms. This means that some of the effects are outwardly noticeable and “active,” such as hallucinations and delusions, whereas some are only noticed through the absence of normal functionality, such as catatonia or mutism.

This infographic seeks to introduce the newcomer to the topic of schizophrenia by offering an easy to digest overview of the illness as a whole. If the reader is curious, he or she may visit www.SchizLife.com to learn more about schizophrenia and find a way to get involved.

Employee Leasing: How to Relieve Your Employer Headaches

Employee leasing is a great staffing alternative, especially for small and medium-sized companies, as well as start-ups. Firms can hire and work with leased staff, employees from an external company called the employee leasing firm. Client companies simply pay the leasing firm a regular fee and the leasing firm handles the client’s leased employees’ salary, benefits, and paperwork. Aside from unburdening start-up companies and similar firms from HR responsibilities, employee leasing offers great advantages.

 

This method of staffing has been around for some time. Learn how leasing staff came about, what some of your leasing options are, and how you can benefit. Visit www.StaffingAndLeasing.com

The True Cost of the Shadow Economy

The economy on the whole isn’t doing very well. We’ve seen consistent growth, but it’s been very small. Unemployment has dropped, but that’s largely due to increased numbers of workers dropping out of the workforce altogether. Consumer confidence isn’t very high either, but it’s not all bad news. The shadow economy continues to boom. That is the part of the economy that isn’t reported for tax purposes.

The shadow economy is estimated to be very small in the U.S. when compared with other countries. As you can see in the infographic, in the U.S., the figure only comes to 9.1% of GDP. Relative to Brazil, that’s a drop in the bucket. Their shadow economy totals 39% of GDP. That’s not the highest though. Russia comes in at 44%. Informal economies can cause devastating effects. The largest of these is on the governments themselves. The loss in potential tax revenue is valued in the billions and even hundreds of billions per country. It contributes to the large deficits that many of these nations find themselves in; although, taxing their informal economies wouldn’t be enough to fix the deficit outright.

The shadow economy has been a persistent part of culture since the birth of taxes, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Even in the darkest of economic days, it always finds a way to thrive.
