  • Herbalife Has Simply Run Out Of Answers; Now It's Time For Regulators To Mop The Floor With It [View article]
    what, a CEO of a major company has nothing better to do than listen to a poorly presented 3+ hour presentation (the fourth looong presentation in less than 2 years)?

  • 24 Ways Herbalife Is Mocking The Regulators [View article]
    your eBay link indicates an avr price for Formula 1 of approx US$30-35.
    So, where are the desperate sellers? Where is the inventory loading?
    Economic theory would say that if there was an excess of unwanted & un-returnable product, the price would fall to zero.
    No HLF member is "losing money" because they are buying product for their own consumption & deriving a benefit from the product. You don't lose money buying something from a retail store, and you don't lose money buying from a MLM distributor.

  • Time To Buy Herbalife Again [View article]
    you "had some MIT guys do the math to confirm my own, and confirm that at a certain point, when EVERYBODY is being given at least partial credit, the company would be paying out in compensation MORE than the cost of the original product."
    who was the MIT guy? the janitor?
    you are greatly confused. The total discount never exceeds 50% of the SRP. In your example of a Senior Consultant getting 35% discount, selling to downline distributor getting 25% discount, the SC's profit is 10% (35%-25%). The SC's upline Supervisor makes profit of 15% (50%-35%).
    The company reports "Net Sales" after all discounts, as the starting point for calculating Net Income.

    Angry Bird & Shorts can't make up their minds. Are distributors clueless victims, or are they sleazy salespeople who make deceptive income & product claims?
    Keep those articles coming--we love the way you cut & paste & summarize old articles that are summaries of summaries of old articles.

    more likely Billy covering his pyramid short (see Gotham Partners' pump-and-dump scheme for Prepaid Legal)

    Don't put down the poor & uneducated. Not everyone has a rich daddy to pay for their Harvard education & help them start a hedge fund after college. The poor & uneducated have fewer employment options. Working at home for MLM company is one option.

    Dark Pool Greed Drove Barclays to Lie to Clients, N.Y. AG Says http://bloom.bg/1nHwPKQ via @BloombergNews
    Our mutual funds, pension funds & retirement funds are losing hundreds of billions of dollars to High-Frequency Traders & you want the SEC & States AGs to investigate HLF? What happened to personal responsibility?
    1. If HLF didn't exist, there would still be slick salespeople in the world--selling cars, real estate, limited-edition prints, life insurance & other financial products. Slick salespeople have been with us since the serpent convinced Eve to eat the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden.
    2. What about the adage "Buyer Beware" or "If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is." Shouldn't people who lost "thousands" of dollars (buying marketing materials & systems, not HLF products) take personal responsibility for their actions?
    3. If people really are being ripped-off & dissatisfied with HLF, why so few complaints over 30 years. Shorts claim 700,000 "quit" last year and imply that these people got zero value out of HLF products. Obviously not true, or we would have 700,000 complaints.

    You missed my point. Why is there a disproportionate number of Latinos working at MCD in the USA? Is MCD "targetting" them? Is "minimum wage" enough to survive on? Or is MCD "exploiting" Latinos?

    By QTR & HAckman's logic (illogic), MCD is "targetting/exploiting" Latinos & high-school kids with McJobs at slave wages. Why doesn't holier-than-thou Billy go after MCD?

    I was more interested in the "Man Walks into McDonald's with a knife stuck in his back" story than another Michelle-blows-Billy article

    QTR repeating Ackman/Dineen's deliberately illogical misinformation about product price comparision of F1. By their logic, bottled water would be the most expensive weight-loss product in the world, at zero calories, no one would be about to affford the price/200 calories! LOL
