    More importantly one should not consider the wages of the distributor.

    Instead, they are more like the OWNER who gets paid LAST.

    The owner gets profits in terms of the net of revenue over their costs, not wages.

    but your sample has never been shown to be representative and thus UNRELIABLE

    Gary

    Please consider that the retail selling, without a downline, to friends, family and personal use is the basic profit making opportunity.

    The profit is made on the difference between what they pay [the discounted price] and what they sell the products for. There is NO WAY to estimate what the INDEPENDENT distributors make, as they do not know their other costs or what they actually sell the products for.

    As there is no interaction with the ultimate users and the firm, Herbalife does not pay the members anything or track anything about the INDEPENDENT distributors.

    yes do read the document, but READ ALL the document

    "For potential Distributors to make an informed decision, we offer the following chart to show the different ranges of average gross compensation that Herbalife pays to its Distributors.

    ____________
    The figures below DO NOT include any retail / wholesale profit that a Distributor makes from selling Herbalife’s products to others nor do these figures include expenses incurred by a Distributor in the operation or promotion of his or her business.
    ___________

    Such business expenses can vary widely. They might include advertising or promotional expenses, product samples, training, rent, travel, telephone and internet costs, and miscellaneous expenses.

    The compensation received by the Distributors in this chart is not necessarily representative of the gross compensation, if any, that any particular Distributor will receive.

    These figures should not be considered as guarantees or projections of your actual gross compensation or profits. Success with Herbalife results only from successful product sales efforts, which require hard work, diligence and leadership. Your success will depend upon how effectively you exercise these qualities. "

    Note the compensation chart discusses THREE different types.

    - single level distributors,
    - non-sales leaders with a downline and
    - sales leaders WITH a downline.

    Single level distributors

    "The economic rewards for single-level Distributors are the wholesale pricing received on products for consumption by the Distributor and his or her family as well as the opportunity to retail product to non-Distributors.

    Neither of these rewards are payments made by the company and therefore are excluded from this schedule"

    Non-sales leaders with a downline

    "In addition to the economic rewards of the single-level Distributors above, which are not included in this chart, certain non-sales leaders with a downline may be eligible for payments from Herbalife on downline product purchases made directly with Herbalife."

    Sales leaders WITH a downline.

    The last category is the only one with multi-level compensation on
    downline sales including royalties and bonuses.

    "This chart does not include amounts earned by Distributors on their sales of Herbalife products to others"

    perhaps if you would actually UNDERSTAND the law as it applies instead of what you WANT the law to be, then you would not have to DENIGRATE those who enforce the law

    There are those who claim Baum wrote a nice monetary allegory of the debate on the free coinage of silver

    - the yellow brick road was the gold standard
    - the wizard was the fed
    - Kansas was the home of the 'cross of gold' speech by William Jennings Bryan
    - the silver slippers was just wishful thinking of parity

    that does seem to be the methodology of those who decry the firm

    proper methodology gets a reliable result
    improper methodology cannot be relied upon

    but that is basic statistical analysis.

  • Political Rhetoric And Unsupportable Economic Statements [View article]
    Krugman takes Bush's comments out of context. It is clear that current policies, such as Obamacare, have encouraged firms to cut full time work and replace them with part time workers.

    The percentage of people who are not in the workforce is much lower than in the past. Thus, the unemployment level is artificially lower.

    Even Sen Sanders, who is just about the polar opposite of Gov Bush, will would agree that getting folks back to work and to work full time would be a huge boon for the economy.

    Krugman, who was rewarded for his work in economics, would agree if he acted as an economist instead of a political hack.

    "Contrary to John Hempton's "on-the-ground" research, mine has concluded Herbalife distributors are comfortable showing no regard for the rules, Herbalife's or otherwise."

    about your "research"
    - what was your methodology
    - did you have standard questions
    - did you record the results in a standardized manner
    - how big is your sample
    - how were they chosen
    - are they representative of the population

    The best strategy depends on the goal to be achieved.

    If you don't know where you want to go, then it doesn't matter which path you take.

  • Middleby to acquire Aga for $202M [View news story]
    Interesting addition if made.

    AGA Rangemaster has a big UK presence and wants to focus on the high end of the market.

    This acquisition would combine some iconic high end ranges, and cold storage units. Thus not only adds to Middleby's existing strengths, but extends their penetration of the home market.

    Further, AGA Rangemaster has several other divisions.

    Fine Earth - a tile manufacturer
    Leisure Sinks - sinks
    Grange - cabinet making
    AGA Cookshop - accessories
