Talent remains an important component of countries and businesses long-term competitiveness. How they develop, attract and retain talent should therefore remain high on the agenda of policymakers and business leaders for the foreseeable future. The Global Talent Index Report: The Outlook to 2015 seeks to inform their thinking by assessing talent trends around the world on two dimensions: at the international level through a benchmarking index of talent environments in 60 countries.

Judging by persistently high unemployment levels in many countries, and growing pools of potential recruits in the developing world, policymakers and business leaders may be forgiven for viewing “talent wars” as a relic of a pre-downturn idyll.

Education vs Prison Costs in the United States

Educating a student costs a lot of money, but incarcerating someone in the United States costs much more because of the required 24/7 care and supervision of prisoners. The data from the 40 US states with operating prisons in 2010 reveals just how much money the US government spent on the incarcerated in contrast to elementary/secondary school students.
