The principal aim of this study is to determine the impact of total quality management (TQM) on organizational performance of SMEs. Based on theoretical considerations, a model is proposed linking the TQM constructs to the organizational performance construct. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses empirically verified and validated the underlying dimensions of MO, TQM and organizational performance. Neural networks were employed to test the model drawing on a sample of 141 small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Turkey. A strong and positive relationship was noted between the level

Overture doesn't have to be a gamble. Keep in mind that pay-per-click has its limitations such as this fact: If you bid $1 dollar per click, and say, there are 1000 people per month typing your purchased search term/key word, only 5% of them (50 people in this case) will actually click through. This will end up costing you just $50 dollars- and that's for the top spot. Your description copy that accompanies each key word/search term you purchase will be critical in convincing web surfers to click through to you (throw your best offer in there, or incorporate the word "FREE" somehow, or promise them some valuable information (FREE information!) that comes with viewing your web page and/or products. Internet metrics are revealing that you can only count on a 4-5% sales conversion rate for...

Happen. The people in very high positions want a one world currency.
Just imagine everyone doing the conversion over from all existing currencies.
As we increase the debt on the dollar *which is fiat* it reduces its value. As the value goes down we will need to pay a higher interest rate when people lend us funds. And that will mean higher taxes or reductions in govt spending.

Ceremonial.
Senators voted a few years ago to NOT make English the official language.
A couple of years ago it was suggested we learn Spanish so the Spanish speakers do not have to learn English.
Where is the current currency conversion rate at? If pesos are worth more and dollars less... that will make it more likely we dump the dollar. In a conversion process, if the dollar has less of a value than before, that will mean less wealth in the new currency.

Credit cards will give you an un-favorable exchange rate and then charge a service fee for the conversion. Unless its unexpected charge, I'd say bring & use cash.
I bet you canadians like that our dollar is decreasing in value, huh? :(

Hyperinflation is an unchecked increase in the

Money supply usually accompanied by a widespread unwillingness on the part of the population to hold the hperinflationary money for more than the time needed to trade it for something non-monetary to avoid further loss of real value. Social unrest is often a result of hyperinflation. Hyperinflation tends to strike very fast and has devasting effects on the populace.
As we see the increase in monetary supply here in the US, we are also seeing a gradual move to precious metals and commodity stocks. This trend, if left unchecked can quickly turn hyper inflationary. The "shellacking" in the recent mid terms may be an early indication that the natives are restless and social unrest should not be is discounted.
Hyperinflation invariably ends with a conversion to a new fat currency...
