Greece Will Default Tomorrow

Greece Will Default Tomorrow

No, this isn’t a prediction. It has already been stated by a Government official that Greece will not pay the €1.6 billion owed to the IMF tomorrow. The lack of means or inability to repay the IMF effectively means that they will default, which makes the referendum all but pointless, considering Greece is having it […]

IMF Is Doing The Fed’s Job

Lagarde has her hands full as Director of the International Monetary Fund. In light of the mess that Greece has gotten itself into (thanks to the persistence of Prime Minister Alex Tsipras) you would think that she would have much better things to do, but she some has the time to tell Janet Yellen how […]

Racist Will Always Be Racist, With Or Without A Confederate Flag

I promise this topic contains some modicum of finance in it. Why else would I entertain such a senseless topic. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week or so, you’ve heard about the Charleston, South Carolina gunman Dylan Roof. He is the white supremacist who went on a shooting rampage in […]

The Fate Of Greece Now Depends Upon Millions…

Earlier this month, the Syriza administration discovered that Greece didn’t have all €300 million to repay the IMF on June 5th. Instead, the government decided to reconsolidate their arrangement with the IMF, lumping all of their June repayments into one payment bundle of €1.5 billion, due by this Tuesday. Three weeks later, and Greece is […]

Twitter’s CEO Search: Not Going So Well

Well, it’s pretty clear from Twitter’s message to investors. The search for a CEO for Twitter is still ongoing, with very little prospects of Jack Dorsey becoming the permanent CEO. That is, if Jack is still planning on being the CEO of Square. I’m not really sure why they couldn’t have announced Costolo’s resignation first, […]

‘Jurassic World:’ Movie Review

‘Jurassic World:’ Movie Review

So this is what huge blockbusters are made of these days. Huge IMAX screens, gimmicky special effects and 3D shoved into your face without any choice in the matter. Then again, this is probably how I expected a remake of one of the most popular trilogies in cinema would go. Then again, this film isn’t […]

Taylor Swift Turns Activist On Apple

People often ask me why I purchase all of my music. Aside from the numerous laws against piracy and the penalties that occur, I believe in supporting work that I like. Unlike movies, I’m very picky and choosy about what artist can occupy space on my iPhone/iPad/MacBook. Needless to say, if I like your stuff […]

In this report contains Table A-1: ‘Employment status of the civilian population by sex and age,’ and in this table, one can find the labor force participation rate for their respective months.

Jamie Dimon: Elizabeth Warren Doesn’t The Understand Global Banking System

I’m glad someone decided to say something, besides Warren Buffett, who really didn’t say anything substantial. I was beginning to think this woman would go throughout her entire career without being challenged. Last Wednesday, JP Morgan Chase & Co CEO Jamie Dimon had some rather choice words to say about the Senator from Massaechutts. Jamie […]
