      through efforts that entail job creation, job retention, tax base enhancements and quality of life. As there is no single definition for economic development, there is no single strategy, policy, or program for achieving successful economic development. Communities differ in their geographic and political strengths and weaknesses. The Guides give the example of a blogger commissioned by an advertiser to review a new body lotion. Although the advertiser does not make any claims about the lotion’s ability to cure skin conditions and the blogger does not ask the advertiser whether there is substantiation for the claim, she writes that the lotion cures eczema.

      Employment Protection. Employment protection laws, which mandate that no one can be fired without due process, are supposed to protect employees. However, if the government tells the employer that he must keep the employee no matter what, he will tend not to hire him in the first place. This law, which appears to help workers, instead keeps.   Every public sector employer needs to be made to think about what extra jobs they can create, come a recession. Plus there is the problem of releasing the additional employees back into the private sector come the recovery. And there you are liable to have problems with employment protection laws and trade unions.

      If the media tell us that “the opening of XYZ mill has created 1, new jobs,” we give a cheer. When the ABC company closes and jobs are lost, we’re sad. The politician who can provide a subsidy to save ABC is almost assured of widespread public support for his work in preserving jobs. But jobs in and of themselves do not guarantee wellbeing.   One company has a very strict policy when it comes to recruiting. It has made it mandatory that there should always be a ratio of men and women in the organisation! Similarly there are other policies that state a person’s gender, age, disability, race or origin should not be used as reason to discriminate during performance appraisals or.
