Incentives are rewards that are linked to >specific long-term goals of the organization. The most common long-term incentive is the stock option, which either gives the executive free company stock, or allows him or her to purchase company stock at a reduced price for a period of time. These stocks become more valuable as the company improves financially, and therefore, ownership of stock is intended to encourage the executive to make the organization more profitable. Executives can then sell these stocks at a later time when they have appreciated in value, therefore providing compensation beyond the employee's tenure with the organization. Recent news stories detailing company failures in which unethical accounting practices and artificial inflation of stock prices caused lower-level employees to lose investments in company stock have raised concerns about the ethics of granting large numbers of stock options to
Businesses often pay individuals a wage based on current market standards. Free-market economies usually dictate specific wages for various jobs. Governments attempting to subvert market prices can reduce the demand for new workers due to a high minimum wage. Individuals can face a few negative effects from minimum wage laws. Minimum wage increases an individual annual salary, bumping the employee into a higher marginal tax bracket.
Jack Johnson Johd Jackson College Composition II October 11, 2010 Outsourcing America Eliminating or reducing American companies trend towards outsourcing could lower the unemployment rate and expedite the economic recovery. Outsourcing is one of the major causes of the current economic collapse. Outsourcing takes jobs away from Americans, and without the ability to work it further reduces the disposable income that is greatly needed in order for the public to buy goods and services. These are the goods and services that will fuel the economic growth that is necessary for recovery from the current downturn in the economy. When you outsource, or offshore, jobs you also eliminate the American workers ability to pay for consumption.

As the demand for one product decreases it can cause a chain reaction lowering the demand for products needed to produce the first product. This cycle will continue until the demand for manufactures goods increased and its citizen’s put more capital back into the economy. This theory is true for any reason that people stop buying goods, if the demand goes down so does the supply and the money spent on the supply. In effort to stabilize an economy that is stuck in the decreasing demand and supply cycle the government should increase spending and find ways to increase individual spending across the country. As the capital is put back into the economy the demand for supplies will go up.

Even if countries began to buy less, the implications of their actions on the global village would be catastrophic. If consumption goes down, then less people will be required to work and companies will have to start making cuts to their workforce because they are turning in less profit. The Buy Nothing Day would throw the world into a deeper recession then it already is in. America and the rest of the world have to consume more and spend its way out of the recession and debt. The United States was built on the principle of having debt and spending its way out of it.
IRS employees would most likely lose their jobs under a flat tax system (Meehan). Many believe that a flat tax system reduces tax for, and actually benefits, high-income earners (Meehan). For example, if the tax rate were 10 percent, then someone making $1,000 would have $900 spending income left after taxes. Someone who makes $10,000 is left with $9,000 after taxes; this inequity is thought to prove that a flat tax disproportionately benefits the rich (Meehan). If the rich paid less tax, many believe that the government would lose significant revenue
This is because of the illegal immigrants that will quickly fill any openings and work for lower wages. Those who are working and making what the normal wage would be are being pushed out by under bidders. The debate on whether the immigrants help or hurt the economy is still at large. If we keep the immigrants here more Americans are left unemployed, but the cost of housing would decrease. On the other hand if the government tries to deport these illegal immigrants and succeeds the housing costs will once again go up, but it gives American citizens
The theory is that jobs are lost when we are tempted by cheap foreign goods. The true effect of protectionism is it reduces consumer choice, raises prices of protected foreign products and domestic goods. This lowers worldwide production and may save some jobs in a specific industry within America but this comes at an expense of the total welfare of the country. Free trade would provide lower prices, higher-quality goods, economic growth, and competition. This policy eliminates competition and competition is needed for a balanced economy.
