Twitter Is Awesome…

Twitter Is Awesome…

Sorry, did I say the word ‘awesome?’ I was actually referring to the social media platform. I think its great being able to share your statuses, updates and ideas in real time. Aside from that, the company doesn’t exactly have the worst earnings in the tech industry, but the headline figures weren’t enough to keep […]

‘Ant-Man:’ Movie Review

‘Ant-Man:’ Movie Review

Until I’ve seen the trailers in movie theaters, I have never heard of a Marvel Superhero called ‘Ant-Man.’ I don’t know anything about who he is, where he comes from, or anything relating to his backstory. I’m probably not alone in this sentiment, as most people have never heard of a character called ‘Ant-Man’ as […]

What Happened To All The Freelancers?

What does it take to be a business owner these days? Not much, especially with technology. You have the success of private car or ride sharing technology initiated by Uber. You also have AirBnB, which basically allows people rent out their own homes, apartments or property, bringing substantial supplemental income to ordinary people. Then, you […]

The Greek State of Security & ‘Trust’

This weekend began another series of deals, which lasted well until the late nights, until the early morning in Greece. Naturally, Eurogroup officials are no strangers to working long hours of negotiating deals for the betterment of their nation’s economic sustainability. By economic sustainability, I’m of course referring to the Greek economy. Before the summit […]

Hillary Clinton Uses Misleading Productivity Chart In Part-Time Debate

I already knew this would happen on day, so it’s not a surprise why I am writing about this again. You might have seen this chart somewhere before: Anyone who believes Americans aren’t working hard enough hasn’t met enough American workers. pic.twitter.com/wyS1p8zcDo — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 9, 2015 I wrote about on one of […]

‘The Gallows:’ Movie Review

There are plenty of good ways to spend 81 minutes of your time. Watching The Gallows shouldn’t be considered one of them. It probably might sound to critical (as I am with majority of the films I watch), but this shouldn’t be seen as an exaggeration. I remember seeing this trailer in theaters and as […]

Why Did Greece Even Have A Referendum At All?

There is a rather interesting meme going on in Europe right now… The Twitter Universe located in Europe has started a hashtag, #ExplainNoToJuncker, where a bunch of anti-Austerity supporters express why the referendum even needed to take place. However, there is just one problem with that: Greece financial situation has not changed, or even improved […]

Chart of the Day: Financial Development & Economic Growth

There may have been a few gripes about my comments on the Greek financial sector and economic growth. I was discussing how a ‘Grexit’ would take away the ability of Greece banks to have access to the ‘lender-of-last-resort.’ This would give the financial sector access of less liquidity, which means less financial sector growth, which […]

Meet Euclid Tsakalotos: Greece’s New Finance Minister

Yesterday, I wrote an update that Yanis Varoufakis has resigned after the results of the referendum that took place, which resulted in an overwhelming vote for ‘No’ against cuts to pensions and VAT increases. As written by Varoufakis, he resigned to ‘aid the deal,’ hoping that negotiations would go more smoothly. From there, it was […]

Greece’s ‘OXI’ Paradox and Parallel Currencies

Greece’s ‘OXI’ Paradox and Parallel Currencies

Although I initially wanted the nation to reject the Syriza party, I can’t say that I’m too surprised at the results. What does this mean? Obviously they have rejected the budget, financial and structural economic reforms the EU have been negotiating for months. It means Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and Prime Minister Alex Tspiras still […]
