...evidence that lead to an understanding of the case and answer the research question. A key strength of the case study methodology is that it involves using multiple sources and techniques in the data gathering process. Data gathered was qualitative in terms of responses from participants of the commemorations and its annual reports, but some of the data was quantitative like the number of people who attended the commemorations and the total number of participants in different years. Case study research method allows the investigation of a contemporary phenomenon within the real life context especially when the boundaries between the phenomenon and context are not clearly evident. As a result, a key strength of the case study methodology is that it involves using multiple sources and techniques in the data gathering process. Tools used in the collection of data included surveys, unstructured questionnaires, interviews and observations. 1.5.1 Questionnaires A questionnaire is a research instrument consisting of a series of questions and other prompts for the purpose of gathering information from respondents, (Munn et al 2004).

Hyperinflation in Zimbabwe

...Hyperinflation in Zimbabwe: An Economic Crisis The Audience: As mentioned in a New York Time’s article, “Zimbabwe has been tormented this entire decade by both deep recession and high inflation, but in recent months the economy seems to have abandoned whatever moorings it had left” (Wines, 2006). This state of hyperinflation has caused the prices to soar to higher levels than ever making it harder for the citizens of the country to be able to consume necessary goods such as milk, bread, toilet paper. This report strives to aim towards the Zimbabwean government, taking a look at the way they have chosen to respond to this constantly increasing problem. The government will agree that this economic condition has been caused by their decision made way back in 2000 to print excess money and they continue to do so time after time, which has eventually resulted into depreciation of the currency. Also, the implementation of price controls causing a shortage in the supply of goods is another fact that the government cannot deny. However, the disagreement comes in when ways to eliminate hyperinflation are taken into account. The way President Robert Mugabe has been dealing with this situation has been ineffective and has caused the country to fall deeper and deeper into the financial crisis. The current government will disagree with this and try to defend their policies. To improve the economic situation of the country, the people of Zimbabwe will have to elect a new government...

The changing socioeconomic demographics and consumer behavior along with increased frequency of natural calamities and disasters have been the main reasons for the growth of this Industry. Its assets as on 31.03.08 were valued at $185 billion with a total of 250 million policies sold and an employee turnover of 113000 and about 1.2 million agents.

The majority of the population in India is yet to be tapped leaving a huge growth potential for this industry. The insurance industry in India is both service based as well as product based. Risk management and product development are the main highlights of R&D in this industry. The life insurance industry is re shapping the retail distribution channel.

Zimbabwe

...Final Presentation Paper Zimbabwe official name is the Republic of Zimbabwe with Harare being the Capital with a population of 13,097,000 in 2013.However the life expectancy at birth is 48 years for men and 47.1 years for women in 2010. Zimbabwe is located in southern Africa. It is southwest and west of Botswana, North by Zambia and on the Northeast and East by Mozambique. The highest point in Zimbabwe is at Mount Inyangai, which is at 8,504 feet, and the lowest point is at 600 feet. The mountains comprise about 25 percent of the country’s total area. About two-fifths of the total population lives in urban centers in Harare or Bulawayo There is a large number of males of working age, leaving an excess number of older people, children and women in rural areas. Half of the black households are partly or wholly dependent on incomes earned in the wage economy. This is unfortunate because of the economy’s decline in the 1990s. A major part of the decline was due to the relocation of farmland from white to black Zimbabweans in the 1990s to 2002. Additionally when Zimbabwe intervened with the Democratic of Congo Civil War this also cost the country hundreds of millions of dollars. Leading to inflation and record high rates of unemployment. Since then, Zimbabwe has made some major changes in their government. As of 2013, there is a new constitution. The president has to be elected into office with a five-year term and a change to serve up to two terms. Two vice presidents......

Albinism in Zimbabwe

...הדעת, וגם אי אפשר, להתעלם מתפקידם המהותי של מרפאים מסורתיים בקהילות המשמרות מסורות תרבותיות מקומיות. מרפאים מסורתיים הם חשובים ובלתי נפרדים מכלל תחומי הרפואה, וחשיבותם ברפואת העיניים וברפואת העור היא משמעותית ביותר. שני אלו הינם תחומי הרפואה הרלוונטיים ביותר בנוגע ללבקנות. זאת בשל הפגיעה העמוקה בראייה ובעור בקרב אנשים החווים מחסור בפיגמנטים, כפי שמתרחש בלבקנות. נפרט בהרחבה אודות הלקות בפרק הבא. 
 לצד הרפואה המסורתית, שירותי הבריאות הפועלים בשיטה הקונוונציונלית (המערבית), הם נפוצים מאוד בזימבבואה. גופים אלו מספקים מענה רפואי במגוון תחומים, ביניהם הארגון ZIMA Zimbabwe Medical Association)), לו כ- 800 רופאים מקצועיים ברחבי המדינה. בנוסף, הפיקוח הרפואי של MCAZ- (Medicines Control Authority of  Zimbabwe) ועוד בתי ספר של הממשלה להכשרות רפואיות אשר מספקים מקומות עבודה לתלמידיהם ומבקשים לקדם את תחום המודעות לבריאות במדינה. אך קיים גם סיוע נרחב של ארגונים בין לאומיים המגיעים להעניק שירותים רפואיים לאוכלוסיה בזימבבואה. למשל, Zimbabwe Medical Project שהוא ארגון אמריקאי המשלב רופאים מארצות הברית יחד עם רופאים מקומיים, ועוסק בכל תחומי הרפואה. על אף שהן הרפואה המערבית והן הרפואה המסורתית משחקות תפקיד מרכזי בתחום הבריאות בזימבבואה, בשני התחומים העיקריים הנוגעים בלבקנות (ראייה ועור), אכן קיימת עדיפות לשיטת רפואה מסוימת; ניכר כי רפואת העור היא מסורתית בעיקרה ולרוב מטופלת באמצעות צמחי מרפא וחומרים טבעיים. אולם, רפואת העיניים מושרשת ויציבה במוסדות בריאות ממשלתיים או בגופי רפואה של רפואה מערבית ורק לעיתים ובחלק מאיזורי הארץ, נעזרים הרופאים הקונוונציונלים בסיועם של המרפאים המסורתיים. ניכר......

Zimbabwe is a country with a rich history, dating from the early San hunter-gatherer societies. The arrival of British imperial rule in 1890 impacted the country tremendously, as the European rulers exploited Zimbabwe's resources, giving rise to a movement of African nationalism and demands for independence. This culminated in the armed conflict of the 1960s and 1970s and independence in 1980. The 1990s were marked by economic decline and the rise of opposition politics. In 1999, Mugabe embarked on a violent land reform program that plunged the nation's economy into a downward spiral, with political violence and human rights violations making Zimbabwe an international pariah state.

...com/ (ISSN 2349 – 6037) Performance of Insurance Industry in India: A Critical Analysis B. Nagaraja, PhD Associate Professor Department of Economics, Sri Venkateswara University College of Arts, Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupati (India) Accepted 30 January 2015, Available online 14 March 2015, Vol.4, No.1 (March 2015) Abstract There is ample empirical evidence to vindicate the relationship between the performance of insurance industry and economic development. In spite of it, there is a dearth of empirical research in developing countries and analytical studies are limited in number, particularly in developing countries like India, where the insurance penetration and density are very low compared with international levels. In India, the growth rate of number of new policies issued and the insurance premium are experiencing a negative trend for the last three years. Reasons and contributing factors for this state of affairs is highly essential. The present paper primarily deals with these aspects of insurance industry and a comparative analysis of both private and public sectors of life and non-life insurance industry. Four indicators-Premium incomes, Market Share, New Policies Issued and Claims Settlement Ratio-- have been used to analyze the performance of Insurance industry. Besides, an overview of share of Indian insurance industry in the global insurance industry and inter-state variations in insurance penetration and density in India have been......

Underdevelopment in Zimbabwe

...Underdevelopment: Zimbabwe In the modern world it has become very common to classify countries in one of two categories: developed, and underdeveloped. One country, which is still considered to be underdeveloped, is Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is located in south-eastern Africa, and is bordered by five different countries leaving no access to the Indian coast. Zimbabwe does however have access to both the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers, which feed into the Indian Ocean, though neither is necessarily easily navigable by boat. There is an abundance of minerals in Zimbabwe, and also a respectable amount of commercial agriculture, however the economy has yet to progress to its full potential. This has much to do with the political turbulence that the country has experienced in the past thirty years, but is affected more so by the social inequality that has predominated for much of its history. Even with the social and political setbacks that Zimbabwe has been forced to face, the economy has done decently, but that has failed to alleviate many of the symptoms of underdevelopment that are still painfully apparent.  Underdevelopment may occur in various forms and have various causes, but the symptoms of underdevelopment are easily distinguishable. The most easily recognizable symptoms of underdevelopment are: problematic population growth, high birth and death rates, high infant mortality rates, and short life expectancies. Disease, famine, starvation, and malnutrition are also all red flags......

Health Insurance Report

...the way for privatization of insurance sector in the country. Health insurance, which remained highly underdeveloped and a less significant segment of the product portfolios of the nationalized insurance companies in India, is now poised for a fundamental change in its approach and management. The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) Bill, recently passed in the Indian Parliament, is important beginning of changes having significant implications for the health sector. The privatization of insurance and constitution IRDA envisage to improve the performance of the state insurance sector in the country by increasing benefits from competition in terms of lowered costs and increased level of consumer satisfaction. However, the implications of the entry of private insurance companies in health sector are not very clear. The recent policy changes will have been far reaching and would have major implications for the growth and development of the health sector. There are several contentious issues pertaining to development in this sector and these need critical examination. These also highlight the critical need for policy formulation and assessment. Unless privatization and development of health insurance is managed well it may have negative impact of health care especially to a large segment of population in the country. If it is well managed then it can improve access to care and health status in the country very rapidly. Health insurance as it is different from......
