people are uncomfortable with the limitations of the
economic framework. Their concern is understandable,

poorly suited for evaluating an activity (agricultural
research) whose primary outputs (technological innovations)
are essentially a means of achieving broader welfare goals

These three developments—globalization, technological advances, and deregulation—
spell endless opportunities. But what is marketing and what does it have to do
with these issues?

Life’s not easy being a Christian, holding on to those ideals, and still running a profitable business. In fact, as Christians we are held to higher standards and hamstrung in ways that our secular counterparts would never understand. Where they can cheat a little, the Spirit inside of us will accept only honesty. Where they can bend the rules, we must walk the straight and narrow.

Avoiding an IRS audit is always important to a business owner. The time and expense of an

Gaining effective control of a corporation enables the controlling owner to
determine how profits are shared among shareholders. Although the minority
shareholders are entitled to the cash flow rights corresponding to their share investments,
