    Yep. When you buy all these toys you want to use them eventually.

    Not exactly. CoB is a part-time occupation and most of the time a feel good pretense for corporate governance. The boss is the CEO and the real CoB is the market price of the stock.

    You can try National Bank of Greece (NBG), it should be an acceptable proxy and easy to trade in the US; it's an ADR. It just almost tripled but still 50% below November price.

    Don't fight a trend that looks like a freight train.

    Because there are less refineries and it's very difficult to open/build new ones due to environment regulations.

    Spending a day with the dealer trying to cross screw him is 90% of the fun of buying a car even if what I get is usually nothing more than a key ring.

    Subsidies can remain longer than you can stay solvent.

  • McMarket Share: How The Golden Arches Could Benefit From Obamacare [View article]
    Regarding salaries cost to gross income, isn't McDo basically a franchisor. I was thinking that for most of the restaurants, headcount is a charge for the franchisee's corporation.

    Liberal bla bla. Salaries and perks are relative for motivation. I've seen bank clerks totally un motivated whilst making $ 250K a year and that was just because next door banker was making $ 270K a year. Furthermore, salary increases boost morale a very short time. Only promotions and empowerment can give you lasting results. Maybe we should all be CEOs.

    I read that the pending recourse was blocking the financial settlement due to victims of Enron. There should be $ 40 mil of Skilling's money that will now be available for the victims as part of this settlement.

  • Magic Trees: The Performance Of Equities Vs. Commodities [View article]
    I think that's because few people dare to dive into commodities but there are a lot people who seem to be able to dissect TSLA battery technology and the performance of the next AMD chip.

    What matters is the voyage not the destination (Mao Tse Tung) (just kidding about Mao). It's been a tough trip so far but hanging there.

    It's a little bit more complicated than that. Of course the argument that Inet vendors have a head start on the brick and mortar ones is real and could be address. However, the way this law is set is basically that big box Internet vendors can comply with its costs where small ones are going to be faced with an administrative night mare. This law just creates a moat for the like of Amazon. By the way, Amazon kindly proposes its independent merchants to take care of the headache for a mere 2.5% transaction fee!
