Oil Extends Gain as Stocks Struggle; Pound Climbs: Markets Wrap


    A business (also known as an enterprise, a company or a firm) is an organizational entity involved in the provision of goods and services to consumers.Businesses serve as a form of economic activity, and are prevalent in capitalist economies, where most of them are privately owned and provide goods and services allocated through a market to consumers and customers in exchange for other goods, services, money, or other forms of exchange that hold intrinsic economic value.

    Businesses may also be social non-profit enterprises or state-owned public enterprises operated by governments with specific social and economic objectives. A business owned by multiple private individuals may form as an incorporated company or jointly organise as a partnership. Countries have different laws that may ascribe different rights to the various business entities.

    “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”

    In recent decades, states modeled some of their assets and enterprises after business enterprises. In 2003, for example, the People’s Republic of China modeled 80% of its state-owned enterprises on a company-type management system. Many state institutions and enterprises in China and Russia have transformed into joint-stock companies, with part of their shares being listed on public stock markets.

    Business process management (BPM) is a holistic management approach focused on aligning all aspects of an organization with the wants and needs of clients. It promotes business effectiveness and efficiency while striving for innovation, flexibility, and integration with technology. BPM attempts to improve processes continuously. It can therefore be described as a “process optimization process.” It is argued that BPM enables organizations to be more efficient, effective and capable of change than a functionally focused, traditional hierarchical management approach.

    Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.

    Many businesses are operated through a separate entity such as a corporation or a partnership (either formed with or without limited liability). Most legal jurisdictions allow people to organize such an entity by filing certain charter documents with the relevant Secretary of State or equivalent, and complying with certain other ongoing obligations. The relationships and legal rights of shareholders, limited partners, or members are governed partly by the charter documents and partly by the law of the jurisdiction where the entity is organized.

    Generally speaking, shareholders in a corporation, limited partners in a limited partnership, and members in a limited liability company are shielded from personal liability for the debts and obligations of the entity, which is legally treated as a separate “person”. This means that unless there is misconduct, the owner’s own possessions are strongly protected in law if the business does not succeed.

    Where two or more individuals own a business together but have failed to organize a more specialized form of vehicle, they will be treated as a general partnership. The terms of a partnership are partly governed by a partnership agreement if one is created, and partly by the law of the jurisdiction where the partnership is located.

    I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.

    No paperwork or filing is necessary to create a partnership, and without an agreement, the relationships and legal rights of the partners will be entirely governed by the law of the jurisdiction where the partnership is located.

    A single person who owns and runs a business is commonly known as a sole proprietor, whether that person owns it directly or through a formally organized entity. Depending on the business needs, an adviser can decide what kind is proprietorship will be most suitable.

    Some businesses are subject to ongoing special regulation, for example, public utilities, investment securities, banking, insurance, broadcasting, aviation, and health care providers. Environmental regulations are also very complex and can affect many businesses.

    Some specialized businesses may also require licenses, either due to laws governing entry into certain trades, occupations or professions, that require special education, or to raise revenue for local governments. Professions that require special licenses include law, medicine, piloting aircraft, selling liquor, radio broadcasting, selling investment securities, selling used cars, and roofing. Local jurisdictions may also require special licenses and taxes just to operate a business.

    The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.

    Businesses often have important “intellectual property” that needs protection from competitors for the company to stay profitable. This could require patents, copyrights, trademarks, or preservation of trade secrets. Most businesses have names, logos, and similar branding techniques that could benefit from trademarking. Patents and copyrights in the United States are largely governed by federal law, while trade secrets and trademarking are mostly a matter of state law. Because of the nature of intellectual property, a business needs protection in every jurisdiction in which they are concerned about competitors.

    Many countries are signatories to international treaties concerning intellectual property, and thus companies registered in these countries are subject to national laws bound by these treaties. In order to protect trade secrets, companies may require employees to sign non-compete clauses which will impose limitations on an employee’s interactions with stakeholders, and competitors.


    1. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the
      pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    2. I’m really impressed along with your writing talents and also with the structure to your blog.
      Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it
      yourself? Anyway keep up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice weblog like this one these days..

    3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure
      of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
      But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
      with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
      Maybe you could space it out better?

    4. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
      I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
      But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several
      websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
      I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
      can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    5. Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.

      same outcome.

    6. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
      using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
      The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
      P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    7. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
      relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
      posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something
      enlightening to read?

    9. Hey! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
      Does managing a well-established blog like yours take
      a large amount of work? I am completely new to writing a blog

    21. You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually one thing
      which I believe I might never understand. It seems too
      complex and very wide for me. I’m taking
      a look forward in your next put up, I’ll attempt to get the dangle
      of it!

    22. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth
      comment. There’s no doubt that that you ought to write more on this issue, it might
      not be a taboo matter but typically people do not talk about these
      topics. To the next! All the best!!
