  • General Growth Properties: We're Glad GGP Rejected Ackman's Demands [View article]
    I don't understand what Rouse has to do with Pershing's bidding process at GGP. Pershing has sold its stake in Rouse, and so has GGP. How could Rouse be relevant to a bid for the GGP properties?

    And I still don't understand why Rouse is "highly leveraged". Isn't their equity ratio higher than other REITS? Or am I missing something? What level of leverage is appropriate for a pool of 30 shopping malls?

    @Sean Weston. So is the cable business worth less than 2 billion? I don't understand the idea here.

  • Japan Says NO to American Cars in Its Subsidy Program [View article]
    If the US makers wanted a truly "level playing field," then they would set up factories in Japan, as the Japanese have done in the US. I think the US Congress is much happier subsidizing the transplants when they are creating jobs in the US. That is probably just as true for Japanese politicians.
