Give With a Full Heart and Inquiring Mind

Give With a Full Heart and Inquiring Mind

Background Check

Inquiring minds wants to be sure their money is going to an organization which is trustworthy and puts their donation into services rather than administration pay. Sometimes, smaller programs have a better track record than the behemoths. Check any charity on one of these sites before compassionately handing over your hard-earned money:

Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance

Charity Navigator

Great Non-Profits

GuideStar

Keep the following in mind before making a donation:

Donate on a website instead or over the phone where a big chunk of the donation goes to the middle man.

Beware of those who call or solicit you on the street for a donation in support of any first responders whether police, sheriff, fire or military.

Never give a cash donation to someone you do not know.

Never give a credit card donation over the phone. Ask for the web address and donate there.

Did you donate via text message? Go to for a receipt of the donation and know that it works with one-time donations that show up on a cell phone bill

Target Your Objective

Think about how you want to support a charitable organization. Target the one you want and make a bigger contribution there rather than making a bunch of small donations sprinkled all over the place. A bigger difference is made this way. More good can come from it. Sometimes, all it takes is one donation to a cause that affects you personally. Give to groups which have helped someone you know, to your child’s school or any place else you feel will put your donation to work for those in need.

Your Money, Your Time, Your Donation

It can be easy to whip out a credit card and make an online donation is an amount too large to pay off when the balance is due. Instead, wait until the balance is paid off on one card and then use it to make the donation in a more affordable amount. Then pay that off before the due date. The reason for this is spelled out in a how-to article by those who write regularly about money topics. Just know that keeping your credit report in excellent standing is the key to obtaining a new home, job, car or a higher credit limit, which in turn can lead to giving more in the following year. If money is an issue, why not clean out closets, drawers and storage units for items not being used anymore? There are so many places that will take clean clothes, (adult or child), furniture, kitchen and home appliances and needs, and food. These are just as badly needed as money and easier on the budget. Ask for a receipt if you think the value of the items given is $250 or more. Save it and use it when filing your taxes. Keep all charitable receipts in one place so they are easy to find before tax time arrives. If all giving is done for the year, total all receipts keep with tax information.

Uncle Sam Gives Back

You made smart contributions to favorite causes and included them when you filed your taxes. Now, Uncle Sam gives back to you. Plan ahead and figure out how much you can contribute and then do some math to find out how much the government will thank you for your dedication. But the real beauty in making a donation of time, goods or money is how it makes you feel. Heart busting.…

The Energy Subsidy, Who Dares, And Who Cares?

What is the subsidy? It’s a government incentive, a financial aid extended to an economic sector. The World Trade Organization mentioned five types of governmental subsidies: cash subsidies, tax concessions, assumption of risk, government procurement policies that pay more than the free market price, stock purchases that keep a company’s stock price higher than market levels.  Consumption subsidies reduce the price of goods and services to consumers, and from the other side, production subsidy encourages producers/suppliers to increase the production of a particular product, so the market would promote it without raising the final price to consumers. It is well known that; the subsidy is applied with the aim of promoting social and economic policies. So it is clear that the subsidy which is counted as a burden on government, more expenditure, (means more pressures), from the other hand consumers are not prepared for its removal or redirection, unless compensated after a rational debate with conviction!!  The citizens will not accept any attempt or an action towards a price increase; it is a very hard issue for them to give up after acquisition!!  Therefore government leaders could not raise prices; otherwise they will be faced with a strong opposition, unrest, street protests, and strikes………… especially if a price raise is linked to necessities.                                                                                  

    Here at this area I will try to focus at the issue of energy subsidy reform. For many years and up to the present time a government‘s efficiency is measured through its ability to promote democratic principles, improve security, reduce poverty, and fight against corruption. Therefore a government might think that the big energy subsidy which benefits all citizens should be directed towards infrastructures, education, and all services which reduce poverty. If the price of energy is low, then the cost of energy subsidy reform will be low and possible to succeed, but if the price of energy is high, then cost of a failure subsidy reform will be high. Some people think that government should reduce fuel/energy subsidy, because a high energy subsidy will make less budget spending on other potential development fields such as infrastructure, education, clean water and so on. They believe that energy subsidy must not make a welfare loss, as it might benefit the rich more than the poor, as you know mathematically speaking the subsidy functions like a negative tax. They also believe that; economic inefficiency is created by a subsidy, because it costs a government more to enact the subsidy than the subsidy creates additional benefits to consumers and producers. While other economists believe that; subsidies are not bad for a society, they raise a surplus in market, and make sense when considering fairness and equity issues and market availability under rational prices for all subsidized necessities such as food and energy.                                                                                         

I think that the oil (energy/fuel) subsidy must be applied when international oil prices are rising. Most countries subsidize fuel costs in order to stop its prices ballooning. The popular government is that one which; lower prices and control inflation, keep many businesses alive, and increases the access of goods and services to its citizens; all these mentioned goals are counted as subsidy advantages. From the other hand the subsidy disadvantages; might emerge when a government is pushed to impose high taxes or face a supply shortage, and I believe this is not a big issue compared to the advantages. Although we have got different views about subsidies in general and energy subsidy in particular, the G-20 leaders in the year 2009 made the elimination of energy subsidies a central element of their policy platform. Those policy active reforms, along with the big decline in international oil prices, have brought energy subsidies to their lowest levels in several years (up to the year2019).  Later on, at the UN Climate Change Conference, many countries indicated that they are planning to adopt an array of national policies reforms, including reforms of energy subsidy policies. So the problems with energy subsidy reforms have been known for a long time, the resources spent on subsidies could be devoted to other important social purposes!!?? Fixing the problem of energy subsidy has not been an easy one, as energy subsidy reform is mainly a challenge of political economy.                                                                                                  

Can we in the Sudan carry out a successful energy subsidy reform programs?    I think the timing for implementing such a program is not suitable at all!! All types of reform: pricing, institutional, informational and complementary will face difficulties, and obstacles, (economic, technical and administrative). If the Sudanese government increased the fuel prices that will flame the high prices for everything and the present status of hyper inflation will be even worse. The collapsing economy will be without legs and feet!!  A cash transfer targeted to poor households’ reform program will not work because

Thoroughbreds At Losing Money

Thoroughbreds At Losing Money

I have never been a gambler.

I pay attention to horse racing twice most years, and three times at most. I find out the winner of the Kentucky Derby (though usually not by watching the actual race) and then, when the Preakness rolls around, I check to see if the same horse has won both races. If so, I pay just enough attention to learn if that horse also wins the Belmont Stakes, taking racing’s prestigious Triple Crown. The last time a horse actually won all three races was in 1978, so since then my excitement over the Belmont Stakes has been pretty limited.

In spite of all that, I thought I knew at least one thing about the gambling world: The house always wins. But it turns out that’s not the case when New York City or New York State takes the bets.

In early December, after about 40 years in business, New York City’s Off-Track Betting Corporation (OTB) closed its doors when it failed to receive a hoped-for legislative reprieve. In its last full fiscal year, ending March 31, the state-controlled corporation operated at a loss of $37.2 million after handing over the money it was required to give to the state, local governments, and race tracks.(1) At the time of its closing, OTB had also racked up a pension bill that, together with health benefits promised to retirees, could be greater than $600 million.

This is a pretty astonishing feat considering that OTB’s business consisted of taking money from people and then giving some of it back to them. This is a business which was previously handled by neighborhood bookies, who never seemed to have a problem making money at it. To be fair, the bookies probably had a less generous pension plan.

Yet both New York City and New York State managed to fail to make money in the business of taking money for nothing. The city finally gave up in 2008, when it handed its mess over to the state.

Officials have tried to blame OTB’s collapse on decreased interest in horse racing. Speaking with The New York Times, John D. Sabini, chairman of the State Racing and Wagering Board, referred to off-track betting as “an industry that’s having a tough a tough economy.” But while decreased demand is a fine excuse for not making much money, a gambling outfit should still be able to avoid losing money. All you have to do is reduce expenses to match revenues.

OTB could have easily closed down many or all of its betting parlors and relied on a small staff to manage Internet and phone traffic. For some businesses, atmosphere is everything, but OTB considered it a major upgrade in “customer amenities” when it installed restrooms and seating in 1993. It seems safe to say then that, while some may have enjoyed a sense of camaraderie in the storefront parlors, most people didn’t turn to off-track betting for the luxurious environment. With the cost savings from closing physical locations, OTB could have done some advertising to try to boost demand. That is what any rational manager would have done.

Unfortunately, instead of having rational managers, OTB had New York City and then New York State.

OTB was designed to function as a public benefit corporation, an entity that operates like a private business but turns over its profits to the state. However, everyone knew that OTB, being affiliated with New York City, was almost certain to become a bastion of patronage, if not corruption, and probably would never admit to having any profits to give back to the government. So lawmakers decided to have the corporation pay the city, and later also the state, a portion of its gross revenue, rather than its net profits. As Assemblyman J. Gary Pretlow of Mount Vernon succinctly explained: “If they’re allowed to pay on the net there would be nothing left over.”(2)

This structure meant that the state was sure of getting some money, but it also meant the government had little reason to encourage OTB to cut costs. Meanwhile OTB had no assurance that it would have enough money after paying the state and the city to actually cover its operating costs, let alone reinvest in its business. The result was inevitable. Now that inevitability has come to pass.

It may take some skill to lose money collecting bets, but it’s the kind of skill New York has in spades. When it comes to the sport of mismanagement, there’s no doubt about it: The people who run the Empire State are thoroughbreds.
