RA Confusion? Developing Markets or for Continuity Developed & -
Is there continuity between the two as a part of RA maturity, or are we seeing a reflection of legacy (ie 'it works[/worked]') technical/business evolution? Not quite the same question as 'What's Next?', but there are some signs that RA is starting to develop along different lines in developing (high growth) and developed (customer retention led) markets.
Revenue Proactive justification of Economical Assurance.
Revenue Assurance is focuses on money, and should be justified in economical terms. Proactive RA is about preventing leakages from occurring.
Reactive and Active RA are about leakages that already occurred.
When we speak about reactive and active revenue assurance it is possible to estimate (based on many assumptions, which of course might be controversial), the economical impact, but how can you quantify the economical impact of proactive RA which prevents a leakage that did not occur yet?

How can rates birth time: Asians improve Baby
The two are linked. Investment in children through government spending may provide a much better return than accumulating vast fiscal surpluses to be invested in low yielding foreign assets or unnecessary infrastructure. That must change if the whole region is not to be a geriatric poorhouse. There is a dumb arrogance in East AsiaÂ’s approach to excess savings and its inability to face up to the reasons for its abysmal fertility rates. Rising Asia seldom thinks it has anything to learn from Old Europe. There is widespread assumption that a high savings rate is virtuous and that family values are...

I have designed and built both air and water control systems that have successfully reduced water usage by 75%, air pollution by 99.99%.

Most ancient cultures, if only symbolically, practiced something of the same. This may be Darwinian: Without parental sacrifices children would not thrive, nor without the blood of warriors could the tribe survive. A belief in or impulse to sacrifice seems inherent in the human race. Their priesthoods convinced them that the gods who controlled natural forces were propitiated through blood sacrifice.
