Purpose – to analyze the situation of age discrimination at work and to give some reflections from job ads in the case of Turkey. Design/Method/Approach of the research. This study presents a limited depiction of age discrimination occurring in Turkey by analyzing job ads. Findings. One of the most critical demographic issues for the entire world, especially for the advanced world, is aging. It is essential as it necessitates some critical regulations that have economic and social consequences. During this aging trend, job seekers over a certain age in labor markets face age discrimination. Although many countries, both developed and developing, have some legal regulations against age discrimination, it remains a crucial form of discrimination. Where we can easily see this kind of discrimination is job ads. This study examined more than fifteen hundred job ads posted by İŞKUR, state-affiliated Employment Agency of Turkey, for the cities of Marmara Region of Turkey were examined. Nearly 20% of all job ads is indicating some statement for age limit. Research limitations/Future Research. Although just the age value indicated by employers in the ads itself does not mean an absolute age discrimination rate, 20 % is a vital implication for that kind of discrimination, and also, this figure implies the need for detailed further studies. Paper type – empirical.

Purpose – to demonstrate the links between social exclusion and the higher costs of treating customers depending on this social sector, unlike other customers who are neither unemployed nor live in poverty. Design/Method/Approach of the research. In the external study, a survey method was used, supplemented with a method of observation at the study site. The authors of the publication carried out research using the qualitative method, formalized interview with medical staff. This research was done in University Hospital in Wroclaw in 2018. Findings. Any health organization must create good relations inside the organization and mostly from outside. One of them is a patient that the author calls a "customer" as every person spends money on health organization leading to the proper hospital functioning. Decision-makers within the system continuously must make choices and seek alternative ways to measure illness costs. One of the factors that harm the optimization of the health services' scale is the social exclusion phenomenon, which is significantly affecting society. Socially isolated people's problems are deprivation, as a lack of access to the necessary level of high-quality, safe, and effective medical services, and cultural competence to provide such medical services. The ex-post analysis conclusions show that relationships between the analyzed areas and the social exclusion phenomenon have a medium and even large dependency and demonstrate cause-effect relationships. Management of customers with the disfunction of medical personnel social requires using other means of communication and building relationships on facts. The communication model between medical personnel and the customer should be founded on a moderate paternalistic model, which is based on facts and documents. The result will be a reduction in service time, which will affect consultation time, financial savings, and an increase in medical personnel efficiency. Originality/Value. In the research of socially isolated people's health problems, three aspects was distinguished: health problems caused by social isolation, health problems that cause social exclusion, and health conditions that are difficult to treat due to social isolation. Paper type – empirical.

Цель работы – установить особенности проявления социально-экономической циклической закономерности «Цикл президентских выборов» на фондовом рынке США в современных условиях и разработпть рекомендации по практическому применению этой закономерности при осуществлении инвестиционной деятельности. Дизайн/Метод/План исследования. Статистическая обработка данных о значениях промышленного индекса Доу-Джонса за период с 1887 по 2020 гг. Результаты исследования. Исследование показало, что закономерности по величине среднего прироста индекса Доу-Джонса в разные года цикла Президентских виборов в условиях современной экономики отличаются от закономерностей, существовавших до 1993 года. В настоящее время практический интерес может представлять только год, предшествующий выборам президента США, когда средний прирост индекса в 2-4 раза превышает прирост в другие годы цикла. Известный ранее тезис о том, что при правящей Демократической партии фондовый рынок США растет быстрее, подтверждается и в условиях современной экономики. Тем не менее, с каждым годом разница между приростами рынка при различных партиях сглаживается. В рамках «Цикла президентских выборов» существует стойкая закономерность, заключающаяся в том, что индекс Доу-Джонса вырастает от своего минимального значения в «промежуточный» год до максимального значения следующего, предвыборного года. При этом, в последние десятилетия величина процента прироста имеет тенденцию к уменьшению, и если раньше, с 1914 по 2011 гг. его среднее значение составляло 47-48,6 %, то в период с 1993 по 2020 гг. процент прироста уменьшился до 36,7 %. Практическое значение исследования. Практическое применение результатов исследования даст возможность повысить точность прогнозирования преобладающих тенденций на международных фондовых рынках и, соответственно, повысить эффективность инвестирования. Оригинальность/Ценность/Научная новизна исследования. настоящее исследование расширяет знания об особенностях проявления и использования циклической закономерности «Цикл президентских выборов», предлагает обновленную модель его использования при прогнозировании преобладающей тенденции на фондовом рынке США. Результаты исследования могут быть интересны специалистам, работающим в сфере инвестирования на международных финансовых рынках. Ограничение исследования/Перспективы дальнейших исследований. Результаты исследований, приведенные в настоящей статье, создают основу для проведения аналогичных исследований для европейских и азиатских финансовых рынков, а также выявления и исследования других циклических закономерностей на международных финансовых рынках с целью разработки прикладных механизмов инвестирования, способствующих повышению эффективности инвестирования. Тип статьи – эмпирический.
