Hope for cutting red tape in Costa Rica

first_imgFrom the print editionCosta Rica has had great success in attracting corporate foreign direct investment. FDI is projected by CINDE, the very successful nongovernmental organization in charge of investment promotion, to grow 7 percent in 2012 and fulfill the Central Bank’s target of $2.25 billion for this year. This country’s well-oiled FDI promotion machine is so successful that the Financial Times Group’s FDI Intelligence Unit named Costa Rica the “Best Country of the Future for Foreign Direct Investment in Central America and the Caribbean” in its “FDI Countries of the Future” report for 2011-2012. The bulk of corporate FDI investment is high-tech and in industrial parks, with favorable tax treatment and simplified regulatory requirements. This new business start-up success at the corporate-exporter level is all well and good. Unfortunately, there is a huge gap in Costa Rica between the well-paved regulatory highway that CINDE and the government have set up for deep-pocketed foreign companies, and the pothole-filled obstacle course that ordinary Costa Ricans who just want to start up a mechanic’s shop or a restaurant are forced to navigate. On the World Bank’s “Doing Business”  rankings, which measure the ease or difficulty of the nuts and bolts of starting and growing a business for ordinary citizens – things like legally incorporating, registering property, dealing with construction permits, enforcing contracts – Costa Rica ranks 121st of 183 countries. In Latin America and the Caribbean, Costa Rica ranks 25th out of 32 countries, behind every other Central American country except Honduras. These figures only confirm what is obvious to anyone who tries to get business done here: Costa Rica is drowning in red tape. So how can ordinary Ticos, as well as entrepreneurial expats, better deal with the maze of requirements that gets in the way of starting businesses and creating jobs?Laura Chinchilla’s National Liberation Party administration has started a low-key project to apply technology to help get government off ordinary citizens’ and entrepreneurs’ backs. Called the Digital Government project, it is operationally a division of ICE, the country’s power and telecommunications utility, but answers to a government commission presided over by Chinchilla. The project seeks to leverage the information technology expertise of ICE to put as many government processes online as possible. The basic building block, the “digital signature,” is already developed. This is a card with a chip on it, which is inserted into a reader connected to a computer. Anyone who has downloaded pictures from a photo data card to a computer using a USB card reader will recognize the set-up. Although the card is called a “signature,” a “digital cédula” (the ubiquitous national ID card required for any transaction in Costa Rica) would be a more accurate description. Each digital cédula is unique and personal for its owner, whether a person or a company, and is protected by a pin number which must be typed in, along with the card computer connection, to log in and do online transactions. The cards are issued by banks, two state-owned (Banco Nacional and Banco Popular) and two private (BAC San José and Banco BCT).Digital cédulas are already in use by banks for clients that move large amounts of money electronically. The most widespread application now implemented is MerLink (www.mer-link.co.cr), an online system for public purchases that incorporates 18 institutions that do 80 percent of government buying. For chartering companies, an online system for notaries (lawyers) is already being implemented, with the idea of future expansion so that ordinary citizens can track progress of their paperwork. The government’s goal is to set up and activate a company in 20 days. For individuals, no end of online transactions is planned: residence permits and cédulas, passports, drivers’ licenses. For municipal governments, ICE is working on putting construction permits, business permits (patentes) and activity zoning (uso de suelo) processes online. At the national level, Finance Ministry tax authorities are doing all they can to move tax declarations and collection online. So far, it’s a hybrid system in which declarations must be filled in online, but payments are the old-fashioned way, by printing out declarations and then going to a bank teller to pay. It’s a good bet that taxmen must be salivating at the prospect of having digital cédulas attached to as many taxpayers as possible. So far, the cards are not required for tax filings.Digital technology has capacity for both empowering and enslaving. It is likely that many Costa Ricans will resist digital cédulas. What can the government do to try to entice people to sign up? One Digital Government project, On- Time Positive Silence, definitely cuts in favor of ordinary citizens and businesspersons. In March 2002, Costa Rica passed law 8,220, the Law for Protection of Citizens against Excessive Requirements and Administrative Processes. Article 7 of this law introduces the concept of Positive Silence: that once all paperwork is presented, the government authorization requested will be deemed granted if the government institution does not respond within three days. This potentially game-changing law, which makes approval the default outcome if the organization does not respond (Positive Silence), has been a dead letter because ordinary citizens cannot drag a notary around to certify presentation of every paper required in bureaucratic processes. But if presentation is online, digitally documented by means of a digital cédula, the government authorization game could change radically in favor of ordinary citizens.

The different flavors of starting a business

Want to launch an app startup in Costa Rica? Read this firstcenter_img Every time a topic starts to become mainstream, it is common to encounter mixups. In Costa Rica we are in the middle of the business startup mixup and that is causing major confusion to entrepreneurs, policy makers, investors and organizations.Entrepreneurship is hot right now. Almost 15 years ago, when I started my first small business, leaving a decently paid job to pursuit your own business was very much frowned-upon. There were no incubators and no events glorifying innovation, and we didn’t even know what seed money was. Fast forward to 2015 and the word “startup” yields you 72 articles in El Financiero (the country’s leading business paper). Turn on your TV and you can see Mark Cuban plow half a million dollars in a business after a 10 minute pitch in Shark Tank. Check your Facebook account and you’ll find at least 5 entrepreneurship-related events coming in the next month. Nowadays, even though we still have a long way to go, the path of the entrepreneur is becoming more appealing to young people and middle-aged professionals.As entrepreneurship hits mainstream media and people start considering making the leap, we can be led to believe that all businesses are created equal. Starting up is hard enough as it is: you are leaving the security of a job, you’ll be working long hours, and you’ll probably have to wear many different hats, some of which perhaps you have never worn before. But depending on the type of business you are planning to get into, you will face very different challenges, and this is something that is overlooked by many. Let’s get into the different flavors of new businesses.Innovation-based businesses: Everybody wants to be UberThis is the startup that grabs all the headlines with its impressive growth rates and disruptive effects on the market. And, of course, what’s not to like? You can go from a project in your garage to being acquired by Facebook for $19 billion in less than four years (yes, we’re talking about you, Whatsapp). The catch is that these types of startups are cash-hungry, which requires you to seek considerable investment. They are also sometimes slow to monetize, which implies you’ll have to have the stomach to weather monthly losses on your way to breaking even.With nonexistent local venture capital in Costa Rica and not exactly the widest cast of angels, these heavy investments are hard to come by. Add to that the small scale of the local market and you’re basically required to think abroad from the get-go if you want to sail in the innovation-based startup boat. Finally, these startups usually require you to build teams with great expertise in different areas: your drive as an entrepreneur and particular industry knowledge certainly won’t be enough.Traditional businesses: More than good ol’ mom and pop shopsThis is the Chinese restaurant in your neighborhood, the bakery on the corner, the bar where you go grab a beer after work. Traditional businesses are said to be the backbone of the economy, and most are owned by individuals or families. Although looked down on by innovation purists and many investors, the truth is there’s money to be made in these type of businesses if you play your cards right – that is, if you think beyond earning your livelihood. After all, Chipotle was once just a fast-food restaurant and Starbucks a coffee shop, right?These types of ventures don’t necessarily require huge amounts of money to get off the ground (until you start scaling them up fast), which means more independence from investment and somewhat more controlled risk. Although some business acumen is always necessary, the fact that these businesses are more traditional means that there are always good practices readily available to learn from. Growth is certainly slower, but allows the starting entrepreneur to learn and figure things out.Micro-businesses: The one-man showThe internet and the many different tools and services available to support businesses make it easier than ever for anyone to start a side gig that can turn into a full-blown business. Say your hobby is to arrange friends’ vacations, you are a good photographer, or you can write a killer Excel guide for dummies. There’s nothing to keep you from starting to turn that into a business, run from your own home. You can create a website for free with WordPress, process payments with Paypal, manage mailing lists professionally with Mailchimp, self- publish content (books, guides, audios), and manage your finances with Quickbooks, for a couple of bucks a month.If you are an expert in any domain, you can start your consulting practice at any given time, provided that you can deliver value to customers with a specific need. In a book called “The $100 Startup,” Chris Guillebeau gathers hundreds of examples of people who started this type of business with little or no money and only their individual work, and turned them into a very nice livelihood and beyond.Social businesses: Making profits while making goodThe notion that any venture aimed at helping a group of people or solving a social problem had to be a nonprofit organization is outdated. Hundreds of examples around the world have shown that sometimes the best way to make a profit is precisely by solving society’s most pressing challenges. Growth with these types of startups is usually triggered more by demand than anything else, but investment or expansion can speed things up.Besides its social impact, it can act like an innovation-based or a more traditional startup, but the good will aspect of it can earn score big points with investors and customers who are sensible to the subject. Plenty of organizations, including the Costa Rica-based Centro de Intercambio de Conocimientos (Knowledge Exchange Center, or CIC), and private initiatives like that of Chivas, hold competitions to support and fund social startups.Being aware of the differences between the types of businesses you can start, and the advantages and disadvantages of each, can help entrepreneurs better prepare for the road ahead and make better decisions when making the leap. For policymakers it is also crucial, especially because in Costa Rica today, all government-based support for new businesses is largely tailored to traditional startups (or PYMES). As for investors, having clarity on this can help understand the risk profile, the return horizon and the type of support they can expect to provide to the venture.last_img read more

Credit Unions Petition CFPB Director Cordray for Exemption

first_img In response to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Richard Cordray’s testimony before Congress Wednesday in which he defended the Bureau’s oversight of credit unions, National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) President and CEO Dan Berger wrote Cordray a letter Thursday asking the Director to exempt credit unions from certain rulemakings.Credit unions have long argued that the CFPB’s regulatory oversight intended for larger financial institutions is making financial products more expensive for consumers due to increased compliance costs, and in many cases putting credit unions out of business. The NAFCU reported earlier this week that since the second quarter of 2010, more than 1,350 federally-insured credit unions have been lost, 96 percent of which had below $100 million in assets.“NAFCU would like to reiterate our longstanding position with the Bureau that regulatory burden is the top challenge facing credit unions of all sizes today,” Berger wrote in Thursday’s letter. “While smaller credit unions continue to disappear from this growing burden, all credit unions are finding the current environment challenging.”Earlier this week, a bipartisan group of 329 members of the U.S. House of Representatives led by Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio)—approximately three-quarters of the House membership—wrote a letter to Cordray on behalf of credit unions asking the Director to exercise his authority under the Dodd-Frank act to exempt credit unions from the certain CFPB regulations.“NAFCU and our members believe that since Congress gave CFPB broad authority in Section 1022 of Dodd-Frank to grant exemptions on a rule by rule basis, the Bureau can and should do more to protect the credit union industry from excessive regulations,” Berger wrote Furthermore, earlier this week, 329 members of Congress wrote to you urging the Bureau to exercise its explicit congressionally authorized authority under Section 1022 to provide meaningful regulatory relief for credit unions to be exempt from certain rulemakings.”The relationship between the regulator for credit unions, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), and the CFPB has been a rocky one since the Bureau’s formation nearly five years ago, with CUNA claiming that credit unions should not fall under the CFPB’s oversight because they did not play a role in the 2008 financial crisis. Cordray may have fanned the flames in February when he defended the Bureau’s oversight of credit unions and several of the Bureau’s mortgage-related regulatory changes, namely the Qualified Mortgage rule and the new servicing rules, in a public speech at CUNA.

Thursday is the beginning of it all Almost every

first_imgThursday is the beginning of it all. Almost every team is reporting or has reported for the start of the NFL season.I have no idea what the season will bring for the Cardinals. It’s easy to assume there won’t be a trip to the playoffs, but in the NFL, there’s always a surprise team.The Cardinals have a lot of ingredients that would normally put them in the mix as being one of the teams experts pick as a dark horse. Unfortunately, there’s one major issue keeping them from being included in any postseason discussion: the NFC West. THE ENERGY OF THE COACHING STAFFNotice I didn’t say the coaching staff itself as a positive. That will be talked about Friday. It would be complete wishful thinking to say the coaches are a positive when you’re talking about a first-year head coach. You can pre-judge the positive vibe Arians and his staff brought to the team, however. It’s clear there’s a more personal connection between the head coach and his players.LARRY FITZGERALDI don’t need to write anything.PATRICK PETERSONPeterson possesses a combination of God-given talent, hatred of failure and desire, and is now willingly accepting of a leadership position.SPECIAL TEAMSThe return game with Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu is loaded. Jay Feely is an accurate kicker. Dave Zastudil is well-above average handling punting. Plus, don’t dismiss the quality signing of Lorenzo Alexander, an excellent kick/punt coverage special team Pro-Bowler.There are very few negatives. Only a couple more positives than negatives. Tomorrow, the questions. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Rod Graves and Ken Whisenhunt did a masterful job of setting up the franchise to dominate the West at the beginning of their tenure together. But as much credit as they deserve, they made a laundry list of bad decisions coupled with stubborn attitudes to open the door for other teams in the division while erasing everything they previously accomplished. Due to those decisions, it will take quite a few lucky breaks for the Cardinals to compete for the postseason in a division where splitting games with NFC West foes would exceed expectations.So here we are in 2013 with the positives, questions and negatives for the season. Today we’ll start with the positives.THE FRONT OFFICEMichael Bidwill made an expensive but winning decision to release a head coach and some assistants while they were still under contract because there were three years of long losing streaks. Even better, one good decision didn’t lead to a cheap one. At OTAs, it appeared the Cardinals led the league in coaches. There’s a lot of manpower on the field to catch mistakes and “coach ’em up.”Steve Keim showed how different his regime is this week. When did Rod Graves and Ken Whisenhunt bring in veteran free agents right at the start of camp? Maybe Graves didn’t put the film work in to be able to pounce on players. Obviously Keim knew he could bring in depth at his price. Maybe Whisenhunt thought it impossible for a player to really assimilate himself to the offense/defense without an offseason. Obviously, Bruce Arians is confident in his coaching ability that he can get late arrivals like Eric Winston ready to play.center_img Comments   Share   Top Stories last_img read more

amount of time energy and money that is pored (excuse the pun) into looking beautiful From ridding oneself of the slightest of wrinkles to removing those pesky blackheads many are willing to go the extra mile for their beauty regime and there is no dearth of advice in the online space The obsession that people have with what’s underneath the skin – and we’re not being philosophical about it – is also no small feat How else would you explain the millions of views that videos showing pus and sebum being popped out of the epidermis Take the video on Facebook that shows a close-up of a blackhead

SkinAddiction community on Reddit this three-step process is said to be extremely effective in blackhead removal People have also been sharing photos of the so-called grits – the debris that collects in the pores – peppered across their hands which actually look like tiny black bugs but we’re assured they’re anything but To be fair the posts are actually two years old but sometimes things get lost and this method seems to have suddenly resurfaced According to the many threads you first use an oil cleanser (OCM which is basically a mixture of mineral oil and castor oil) followed by a clay mask then clean that up to apply another round of oil cleanser but this time rigorously massage your skin This is supposed to tease the blackheads and sebaceous filaments out of your skin Those who complained the method didn’t quite work addition of castor oil to the cleanser was advised (Source: Imgur) According to a Redditor this is how the person goes about the routine: “First I take off my sunscreen with baby oil on a cotton pad and then wipe off with a wet cotton pad Then I put more baby oil directly on my skin and leave for a few minutes Then I just gently massage in circles for about a minute to two minutes I feel things pop out of my nose and chin (where my SFs and closes comedones are) A lot of times I get clear plugs with white gunk on them but lately I’ve been getting more clear plugs with black gunk on them” There are some doubters of course and dermatologists say that clay is good for exfoliation but the rigorous rubbing could be irritating for your skin “Clay is known to have the ability to grab the debris and then lift it out of pores” Elizabeth Tanzi MD told Refinery29 In addition dermatologist Rebecca Kleinerman told Business Insider “I think theoretically

Heather Watson for the first time in five meetings There was further frustration for the Belarussian as Watson bagged 11 games during a thrilling third round Centre Court encounter – the same number Azarenka had surrendered in total during their four previous showdowns Yet those stats and an astonishing moment of judgement by Watson in the third set could not deny Azarenka victory as she reached the last 16 with a heart-stopping 3-6 6-1 6-4 win over the British wildcard “I really stepped up in the key moments” said Azarenka who is playing in only her second tournament after the birth of her son Leo in December Fellow two-times grand slam champion Mary Pierce put it more forcefully: “Azarenka showed today why she is a former world number one – when it counts she takes it up to another

cheers that greeted Hawkeye’s verdict left no doubt which way the call had gone – and that too by a whisker A backhand long from Azarenka on the next point lifted the crowd off their seats as they erupted in celebration But the euphoria evaporated within minutes as 102nd ranked Watson who had come within two points of beating Serena Williams at the same stage in 2015 chased down a lob only to wallop the ball into the net handing Azarenka yet another break point As she bent over her racket in frustration Watson must have realised she was running out of lives A time violation was the last thing she needed – but it was what she got as she tried to gather her wits When she did finally launch into her serve the muted applause that greeted the end of the point confirmed that Azarenka stood only a game away from making the second week of the grasscourt major for the fifth time Watson earned two further chances to throw Azarenka off course as she streaked 15-40 ahead in the 10th game but

stronger cricket nations For example if Bangladesh and Afghanistan continue to play against each other will they ever progress” Shirke asked The BCCI readily received a vote of thanks from SLC

thank the BCCI and its president for supporting our viewpoint in opposing two-tier Test system which will be detrimental for lower-ranked countries in a number of ways” Sumathipala said The BCB had already opposed the change saying that it would force their cricket to “regress” As for the centralised marketing the countries that opposed it felt that placing the global broadcast rights to a

Kher stated that the Ministry of Railways and Chandigarh Administration had given approval for RUB and the foundation stone would be laid immediately after the Municipal Corporation elections The project would likely be completed by September 2017 Watch what else is making news The height of RUB will be 3 mts (10 feet) and the total width of the road will be 36 feet (18 on each side) There will be a water drainage system to avoid waterlogging during rainy season The total estimated expenditure incurred on this project will be Rs 425 crore “The RUB was the long-pending demand of residents as they would remain stuck in jams All clearances for the construction of RUB have been taken” the MP said “It is a gift for the city” Kher took a dig at former railway minister Pawan Kumar

Veera | Visakhapatnam | Updated: November 18 2016 7:33 am As Virat Kohli went past 150 on Thursday the number-crunchers must have noted an emerging pattern in his Test batting — his newly acquired penchant for making daddy and grand daddy hundreds (Source: Reuters) Top News THE FIRST day of a Test match in India has almost become a sign-spotting exercise about the rest of the game Did the ball misbehave a bit Did it occasionally keep low Was there any turn Was there a puff of dust on the pitch in the last session The first day itself generally flows in an auto-pilot mode a kind of day England would have dreaded when the tour to India was finalised Lose the toss watch Indian batsmen loot runs and as the day wears on wince when occasionally the ball does some tricks Vizag even threw in a dog interruption for that complete Indian experience There was also a little bit of turn the odd one that kept low; and some wear and tear appeared on the track With the spinners bowling a lot of tripe – they were spot on with the lines if not their lengths at Rajkot but erred on both fronts here — and the seamers unable to get any reverse it needed a canine intervention to stop Cheteshwar Pujara from making a ton before tea England started well curtailing a gorgeous 20 from M Vijay with a bouncer from James Anderson and taking out the Gautam Gambhir replacement KL Rahul cheaply but came unstuck against the class of Virat Kohli and Pujara It was their seamers who kept them in the game though it also revealed the class of the Indian pair Virat Kohli vs Stuart Broad was exciting as ever Just as he did in the first Test after a point Broad stated to ping a line well outside off Kohli chose to shuffle across at times even ending up just outside off in his attempt to get close to the ball Barring an occasion when he had dragged himself right across to the off side and couldn’t resist a poke at a delivery that cut further away from him he was in supreme control Sometimes he takes a guard on the off and middle to such attacks but not here; he preferred to shuffle but managed to maintain a serene balance Anderson vs Kohli too was fun to watch Anderson who replaced Chris Woakes – the man who hit batsmen on the helmet almost at will at Rajkot but was rested here – got the ball to wobble through outside-off Occasionally he punctuated it by banging the ball in short Kohli top-edged a pull trying to fetch it from outside off but it ran through the untenanted fine-leg region Cheteshwar Pujara shared a 226-run stand with India Test captain Virat Kohli (Source: PTI) With that memory fresh England had a rather interesting field for Ben Stokes A long-leg a fine-leg and a deep square-leg were in place as Stokes started to liberally use the bouncers in between his attempts at slower ones and cutters It was the short-pitched stuff that looked his most dangerous weapon Once when he was on 56 Kohli went for the swivel-pull that he plays but the top edge had the ball swirling down to fine-leg where Adil Rashid lunged but couldn’t hold on Having Moeen Ali and Rashid in two of those three positions when the plan is to bowl a bouncer didn’t seem a smart choice but that’s how it rolls sometimes With that jailbreak Kohli began to flow even more freely and started to toy with the spinners He cover drove Moeen Ali before pressing back to late cut the next for another four He pulled and cut Stokes and of course those cover drives off the stretched front foot kept coming After a point it didn’t matter it was Anderson or Broad or spinners Kohli was in total control As ever he ran like a man possessed The way he has amped up his fitness and his maniacal dietary control exemplified cutely by his plump IPL team-mate Sarfraz Khan once – “Voh kuch khaata hi nahi (He doesn’t eat only) – has helped him leap to another level He rarely ever seems to get tired and unlike some his mind isn’t in a war with his body even as the day(s) wear on All that undoubtedly has a positive effect on his batting and gives the impression that he is almost coasting Hat-trick of tons for Pujara If any Indian is really coasting it’s Pujara Three in a row and a new-venue-hosting-first-Test specialist at that Indore (against New Zealand) Rajkot and now Vizag He is of course a giant in India as well averaging nearly 70 in 22 Tests in India with 8 of his 10 tons coming here The best compliment that can be given to a batsman is to say that it wasn’t a surprise that he hit a hundred It’s such a ridiculous statement really considering the skill set and mental toil that is required but Pujara gives you that impression these days What was a surprise was that he hit a six to get to his hundred; even he was moved enough to say that “Yes completing the hundred with a six was special to me” For a while now he has been saying how he hasn’t changed his technique but after a confidence-boosting chat with Anil Kumble he has worked on his intent Perhaps that six – he pulled a long-hop from Rashid over midwicket – was a result of that However the shot that best captured his intent had come a touch earlier when he was on 92 and facing up to Broad He cut Broad for a four but what made it special was that England had loaded the off side with an 8-1 field and Pujara still managed to thread the gap On top of the list to watch in this Pujara knock was how he would handle the short ball At Rajkot he was stunned a bit by Woakes who hit him on the helmet on a few occasions Here while he didn’t get too forward across that allowed him not to get cramped for room the English plan also changed They bowled bouncers especially Stokes but the direction had changed With catching fielders behind square on the on side Stokes repeatedly angled his bouncers almost at the left shoulder of Pujara In other words on the leg side and Pujara could side-step it easily by moving to the off and staying away from the line Woakes had got it to kick in from outside off at his face Stokes got it to rear up towards the leg side Early on there was one from Stuart Broad that was directed at him similar to Woakes deliveries and he got hit on the shoulder trying to duck That line of attack wasn’t followed up by England who changed their direction of bouncers and Pujara evaded them easily When the seamers pitched it full he rolled out those off drives to great effect And he was a treat to watch against the spinners often jumping down the track to whip them through midwicket And there were enough short deliveries for him to get back and cut as well Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 151 at the end of day’s play (Source: Reuters) There was a bit of misunderstanding with Kohli in the first session over running between the wickets – he just about dived back into his crease to beat a throw from Joe Root from square-leg and followed it up with another mad dash back to safety after ditching his bat in the middle of the track It was off successive deliveries in the 18th over but they calmed down soon after and Pujara said they spoke about it in the lunch break as well They also decided that they would accelerate in the second session “Myself and Virat spoke that we needed to accelerate a little bit and we were able to accelerate We wanted to dominate at one particular time So it’s about batting according to the situation rather than just worrying about who the partner is” Pujara said “The way we were running between the wickets in the second session it was much much better So I think when it comes to communicating we had a chat during lunch time and things got better” The end came via his stock shot – the cut he plays where the bat almost reverberates in the end He had just driven Anderson to right of mid-off and he tried to cut a slightly wider delivery but ended up nicking it behind The English got a bit more swing out of the second new ball and Anderson got Ajinkya Rahane pushing at a delivery outside off By then though India had moved into a commanding position and with Kohli still at the crease they would hope to extend the total and also bat on long enough to allow the pitch to wither All in all a typical first
