Points Do You See?
Tipping Point: The
point at which a slow, reversible change
becomes irreversible, often with dramatic
consequences, which may be good or bad.
You have a
front row seat in your community, business or government
role. Your first-hand insights about Tipping Point
trends should be shared! Tell us about the tipping
points you see and we'll post your comments on the CFA
website and perhaps cite them in upcoming events,
commentaries and radio programs.
Tyler, Kauffman Foundation, reports based on economic
research: In the U.S. an average of about
500,000 businesses are started every year. If this
number could be increased to about 750,000 a year, it
would make a material difference in the economy.
It would be very beneficial for the U.S. to create about
60 $1 billion companies a year.
Homan, Drexel University College of Medicine,
Philadelphia, reports: About 50% of the med
school students graduating from Drexel already have one
medical liability malpractice claim against them before
graduating. Students and doctors are always
worried about lawsuits and this doesn't help the quality
of care given to patients.
