Basic Income—an early Icelandic experiment

union members were not the big beneficiaries of tax-credit transfers. The workers’ unions probably did not see the tax-credit system as their baby.

The tax deductions soon became a matter of discussion between the state, the labor unions, and the employers’ unions

Interaction Between Marketing and Informational Technologies in the Insurance Business

Abstract

Business of selling insurance requires great skill especially in this time of difficulty caused by the economic crisis which seems to extend more than anyone had. If by 2008, life insurance offset the gap represented by a long-term savings product to fill in the state pension, after this year, more and more they entered the natural path of protection first. Currently, however, the economic crisis has become an even bigger reason to refuse or postpone the purchase of insurance.
