If California would have gotten rid of the death penalty long ago such money would not have been spent, saving the state millions of dollars. Also in some states one trial can be a setback, financially speaking. For example, according to The Spokesman-Review officials in Washington are concerned that the costs for a single death penalty trial will approach $1 million. To pay for the trial, the county has had to let one government position go unfilled, delay employee raises, had to use its $300,000 contingency fund, and eliminated all capital improvements. According to fnsa.org Georgia is laying off 900 correction personnel due to the high costs of the death penalty.
However, the industry average is. The capital structure of this industry determines if these ratios are too high or too low. The debt-equity ratio for the company in 2009 was 1.14, a fair increase from 2008 which was 1.07. Since the ratio is greater than 1, the debt is greater than the stockholders equity, meaning the majority of the assets are financed through debt so it isn’t attractive for investors as it is riskier to invest. ---- Yet
From this total, in 2010 the most part of this money was wasted on the commissions for stores selling these tickets, and prizes; the government received only $17.9 billion, which broke down to 30 percent in profits and 8 percent in administrative costs. In addition, lotteries can be seen as a hidden form of taxing; in 2009, 11 American state lotteries raised more money per person than corporate income taxes. Though people usually tend to see lotteries as a panacea against their unsatisfactory financial condition, in fact lotteries cannot save one from poverty or going bankrupt. In 2007, one of three lottery winners experience severe financial problems within about five years, and even lose all their capital. One of the main reasons standing behind this phenomenon is that despite suddenly gaining vast amounts of money, people do not revise their financial habits; moreover, rather often lottery winners spend money less
The NEA’s 1999 budget was $98 million, which is considered amazing for many people, but actually, it represents just 36 cents per American. Comparing to Sweden, the government spending on arts is about $30 per capita (1). The question about supporting arts or not is related to the effects of arts to greater or lesser government’s grants; or some might say that supporting arts is just a matter of political ideology from the government. After 12 years, from 1999 to 2011, NEA’s budget increases more than $50 million to $154,690,000 (4), but still, that is not enough. Using tax dollar to support arts would be the solution; since compared to sale tickets or donations, tax money is more available and more consistent.
The average employee "needs to work more than a month to earn what the CEO earns in one hour. " Although different from income inequality, the two are related. In Inequality for All—a 2013 documentary with Robert Reich in which he argued that income inequality is the defining issue for the United States—Reich states that 95% of economic gains went to the top 1% net worth (HNWI) since 2009 when the recovery allegedly started.  A 2011 study found that US citizens across the political spectrum dramatically underestimate the current US wealth inequality and would prefer a far more egalitarian distribution of wealth.  Wealth is usually not used for daily expenditures or factored into household budgets, but combined with income it comprises the family's total opportunity "to secure a desired stature and standard of living, or pass their class status along to one's children".
A small fee for the benefits they offer the ones who need it. What happened over the years? Now days, the government looks only at the amount of money they receive and how much all those benefits cost them. Yes, with out congress, the U.S. would be as ate up as any other third world country, the number of homeless would increase, the sick would not get the medical attention they need, and we would have less money than we do now. Without the
One of the most desired and most paid jobs for musicians is playing in a major orchestra. But, over the past two decades, a lot of orchestras struggled financially with decreased budgets because of less donations and support. One of them was the "Philadelphia Orchestra," which almost closed few years ago.
Ryanair is a European based airline company that has based their company on cheaper flying rates than the competitors. They try to focus on cost-cutting and do this by not having many long trip flights. Just like every company in today’s society, Ryanair has its share of ethical issues that it needs to face. In the early 1990’s Ryanair found itself struggling to stay afloat. They had run through five different chief executives as well as having losses of €20 million.
Even though professional district judges can get through 30% more cases than a lay magistrate, (mainly because they spend less time conferring with court clerks), they cost £61.78 per hour. Magistrates work on a voluntary basis and only get paid expenses which works out at £52.10 per hour. This is good news for the taxpayer. (K. Malleson, R Moules, The Legal System 4th Edition P234) Because magistrates are unqualified they can seek help and advice from a qualified court clerk. Lord Parker CJ described the clerk as “the most important person in the administration of justice.” (P Darbyshire, Darbyshire On The English Legal System 10th Edition P512).
