The Art of Management

Capital efficiency

In principle at least, the main function of management is the efficient use of capital in everyday decision making. Managers have to satisfy three main beneficiaries of the company, namely the employees, bondholders, and the investors. Company employees benefit by earning a salary, while bondholders gain by receiving interest on their held bonds. However, both these beneficiaries are more concerned with short term gains, whereas investors, who are the residual owners of the company, are more concerned with long term gains. Investors receive benefit from the company by either receiving a cash dividend, and/or capital gains on the price of the stock.

This amount increased from $100 to $160 per month per child under 6 years old. This is the amount paid on the 20th of each month. However, the first 7 months ($420) payment for 2015 will be paid out in July of this year. Then, from August 2015 onwards, the payment will be $160 per month per child.
