Credit is of great importance to one's development.
Without credit, one wouldn't get the trust from others, let alone get help from others or cooperate with others.
However, nowadays the whole society is faced with "credit crisis".
To begin with, business is threatened by the lack of credit and trust between enterprises and banks.
According to a recent survey conducted by the People's Bank of China, a total amount of 3240 billion Yuan debts were not paid off to banks by the enterprises in the year 2006.
In addition, lies often exist between friends. For example, Xiao Wang-my neighbor-was persuaded to buy certain insurance product and turned out to find that he was cheated.
What's more, we have heard lots of news reports that family members cheated each other for their respective benefits.
We should take measures to improve people's sense of credit and establish stricter laws to punish the behavior of those who do not have credit. Only in these ways can we hope to enhance the credit of the whole society.
Is EQ More Important than IQ?
Nowadays, many people in the society hold the idea that 20% of one's success lies in his Intelligence Quotient, while 80﹪ in his Emotional Quotient.
People now are more and more aware of the importance of EQ.
In my opinion, I fully agree with that.
First of all, with a high EQ, one will get along well with his peers and companions, so they can conduct business or finish their work in a harmonious atmosphere and improve the working efficiency.
Furthermore, only with high EQ can one be self-restrained and bravely overcome the difficulties encountered in work and life.
In brief, a high EQ will make a person become more optimistic, confident and passionate in his work.
As the saying goes, one's character determines one's destiny, which stresses on the importance of EQ.
Therefore, while IQ indeed can't be ignored, EQ is more vital for one to be successful.
My View on Global Food Crisis
Recently, people are talking about an urgent threat the global food crisis, and the year 2008 is even defined as The Year of Global Food Crisis.
The global food crisis, firstly, can be said to be triggered by the fast population growth in recent decades.
With more and more people to be fed, we have to find better ways to increase our agricultural yields.
Moreover, while we are striving for a higher civilization, the damages we have done to the environment make much of the world’s soil deteriorate. With the land yielding little, there is no wonder that people will go hungry.
Last but not least, many farmers in some countries are leaving the land because the cost of production exceeds the return.
Some of them work at jobs off the land, and some just lay waste the land altogether.
Solving the global food crisis is a big issue, and needs the concern and cooperation of every nation of the world.
On an individual level, we should be frugal about the food, and never waste a bit of it.
Due to the tainted milk produced by Sanlu Company, many infants were suffering from kidney stone, and some even died.
This case, however,is only the latest food safety problem.
In the near past, KFC food was found to be tainted by Sudan red, a dangerous chemical that could cause cancers.
Food contamination will result in not only direct health problems, but also other indirect consequences.
On the one hand, when a product is discovered to be contaminated, people will have lingering fears on a large scale. On the other hand, take Sanlu scandal for instance, when the scandal was brought into the daylight,the company only reaped its bankruptcy, which can affect social stability due to unemployment brought by it.
In order to counter food safety problems, corporate leaders should not only attach importance to short-term profit through adulteration and other unlawful means.
Meanwhile, the government should also perfect its supervision procedures and increase financing for food testing.
