The coronavirus epidemic is affecting the global economy in the most serious of ways, and the Mexican government is scrambling to contain its spread. Even though the country has yet to implement a full lockdown, the coronavirus epidemic is taking its toll on the economy. Mexican drug trafficking syndicates have not been spared either. Just like legitimate businesses, they are beginning to feel the pinch.
The Mexican President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has demonstrated astounding benightedness, especially when it comes to enacting policies aimed at tackling the coronavirus epidemic that is fast ravaging the country.

When products and services move to low-cost, more advanced platforms they often help expand the entire marketplace. When reviewing gig platforms, the very first thing you review is total cost.

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the term “missionary work”? Maybe you would picture in your mind individuals playing with African children in a little village, distributing food to the poor, or digging wells in a foreign land. While these are the sort of tasks that missionaries undertake, missional work involves a broader range of the types of work.

The knowledge that there is much more to life than just the here and now allows the missionaries to see the “eternal perspective,” and this helps them to fulfill simple tasks while still making a lasting impact and glorifying God.

When reviewing freelance gig platforms we recommend the first item you consider is total cost. Many of the large gig platforms charge very aggressive rates; some as high as 27-28% of every dollar. Thus, if you are working on a gig platform charging such a high rate, we would recommend that you consider a slow plan to migrate off it. Over time you should make more money. With every dollar you earn (everything being equal) the buyer and seller are paying double the transaction fees of low-cost gig platforms (only 12%). That is substantial, especially over several years.

There are so many reasons why established firms pay too much attention to the design of a product. It is because every aspect they add or deduct from the product design tends to dictate how a customer reacts. For instance, similar products from the same manufacturer but with different designs are going to spark different interests in people.

The fact that there are tons of different products in the market today, the only thing that consumers rely on to make the right decision is the product design. Below are details that lucidly show how a product design plays a huge role in the decision making of a customer.
First you need to understand gig platforms are a different category from freelance jobs. The whole concept, structure and solutions are uniquely different. So today we are only reviewing gig platforms.
The first thing you need to review and measure is the total cost of a gig platform. When you look at the total costs of the leading gig platforms today, it definitely has a price-shocking feel to it. For example the leading platform charges sellers 20%, then often adds on 5% more to the buyers, and then possibly an additional 2-3% for service fees. The total costs come in as high as 27-28%! That leaves only 73 cents of every dollar for the gig provider doing the actual work. That is just gut-wrenchingly high.
