Lumpsum Lumpsum aan elkaar vast duidt op de financiering van scholen door de Nederlands overheid (in Vlaanderen spreekt men van enveloppenfinanciering) of het honorariumsysteem voor medisch specialisten en andere beroepsgroepen binnen de Nederlandse gezondheidszorg (lumpsumregeling). Lump sum los van elkaar geschreven of met een streep er tussen betekent een bedrag ineens voor een pakket producten ook wel partijprijs genoemd. Lump-sumbelasting betekent dat de overheid een belasting heft die voor iedereen even hoog is. Lumpsumfinanciering[bewerken] De Nederlands en Vlaamse overheid wil aan scholen vrijheid geven in de besteding van de overheidsfinanciering. In 1986 voerde de Vlaamse overheid daartoe een subsidieregeling voor de hogescholen in[1]. De lumpsumfinanciering houdt in dat de besturen van scholen een vergoeding krijgen op grond van het aantal ingeschreven leerling op 1 oktober in euro's in plaats van formatierekeneenheden.

There is Still Time to Defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership The task may be difficult but it is not impossible — there is still time to defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Activists on both sides of the Pacific Ocean forced a couple of concessions in the final TPP text, agreed to earlier this week after years of negotiation, so we are not without hope. More hard work by activists is the only power that can stop the TPP from becoming law in 12 countries. If we fail to stop it, the TPP promises to tighten further the dominance of the world’s biggest multi-national corporations with the implementation of nearly unlimited rights of corporations to overturn health, safety, labor and environmental laws through secret tribunals that bypass and override national legal systems. Although the Obama administration, which had consistently pushed for the most draconian rules, yielded some ground on pharmaceutical-industry profiteering, the TPP is a thoroughly anti-democratic deal. The biggest compromise concerned biologic medications. Don’t be fooled.

The Most Brazen Corporate Power Grab in American History - Advertisement - Reprinted from Truthdig (image by Wikipedia) DMCA The release Thursday of the 5,544-page text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a trade and investment agreement involving 12 countries comprising nearly 40 percent of global output -- confirms what even its most apocalyptic critics feared. "The TPP, along with the WTO [World Trade Organization] and NAFTA [North American Free Trade Agreement], is the most brazen corporate power grab in American history," Ralph Nader told me when I reached him by phone in Washington, D.C. "It allows corporations to bypass our three branches of government to impose enforceable sanctions by secret tribunals. The TPP is part of a triad of trade agreements that includes the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). These three agreements solidify the creeping corporate coup d'etat along with the final evisceration of national sovereignty.

De flappen leggen verkeerd 12 november 2015 - D66-prominent Hans Wijers vindt dat er niet steeds maar meer geld naar innovatie en onderwijs moet gaan, maar middelen gerichter geïnvesteerd moeten worden. In debat met werkgeversvoorman Hans de Boer ging het daarom om “heel goed onderwijs in die welvarende stadstaat Nederland.” In Den Haag gingen de voorzitter van VNO-NCW, Hans de Boer, en Heineken CEO, Hans Wijers, met elkaar in gesprek over hoe we Nederland innoverend kunnen houden. Wat is er voor nodig om Nederland koploper te laten blijven in de huidige wereldeconomie? De vroegere D66-minister van EZ bracht daar naar voren dat er niet steeds maar meer geld naar innovatie en onderwijs moet gaan, maar dat de middelen gerichter geïnvesteerd moeten worden. Heel ver weg De aftrap was de vraag hoe zij het Nederland van 2050 voor zich zien. “We hebben dan een heel dynamische economie. Waar je wiegje stond Hans de Boer had wat minder materiële idealen voor 2050. Deens model Hans de Boer was wat bonkiger hier.

House passes Obama's 'fast-track' authority to negotiate trade deal — RT USA Published time: June 12, 2015 17:58 Edited time: June 12, 2015 18:36 U.S. President Barack Obama (Reuters / Kevin Lamarque) President Barack Obama has succeeded in obtaining controversial “fast-track” approval for his Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal in the House of Representatives. The Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), as the “fast-track” powers are officially called, passed by a vote of 219-211, giving President Obama an unlikely victory. In a preceding vote, the House struck down a proposal to extend the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program, providing assistance to workers who would lose jobs as a consequence of trade deals. With both the Senate and the House adopting “fast-track” authorization, Congress will only be able to vote on the finalized agreement, without the opportunity to offer amendments. Many Democrats defied the President’s request to approve the TAA, contributing to the measure’s defeat with a 302-126 vote.

Farmageddon — The Positive Path - Because there is nothing more powerful than an open mind « Entire Video Library Overview Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent ac-tion, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why. Filmmaker Kristin Canty’s quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family-operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities. Farmageddon highlights the urgency of food freedom, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals’ rights to access food of their choice and farmers’ rights to produce these foods safely and free from unreasona-bly burdensome regulations.
