No, Apple Doesn’t Care About Inflating It’s Senior Management/Board Minority Quota

Unless your a predominately minority institution (Such as a Historically Black College or the NAACP), there is usually a push to increase the diversity among the participants. The University I attended was no exception to this rule. Not to say that my university was predominately white, but chances are the classes you registered for would […]

Obama’s Gun Control Effectiveness In The Following Charts

I certainly hope that he’s earning some commission on these trades… Smith & Wesson Holding Corp: Stum Ruger & Co: These are just the price movements within the last two days. Both companies are up more than 10% on the news, while the Dow and S&P are down so far. It’s been a very good […]

College Should Be Free, But Not For The Reasons You Think

I’ve already discussed the problem with skyrocketing tuition cost, and the many factors (well, the only factor) attributing to that growth. The problem is that none of the policies enacted thus far as worked to mitigate the problem. So, maybe we should consider the possibility of making college available to everyone. That’s a very popular […]

The Nightmare On Wall Street

The end of the trading week has begun, and the start of a new nightmare begins, as this week marks the worst week for stocks since 2011. Not to mention the Dow experienced the largest point drop since the financial crisis. Um, ouch? And I know I’ve played this meme plenty of times before, but […]

Fed Study: Federal Financial Aid Drives Up College Tuition Cost

Fed Study: Federal Financial Aid Drives Up College Tuition Cost

I wasn’t exactly sure a study for this would ever surface because it really isn’t necessary. Understandably, the issue over surging college tuition cost has been vexing for most people. After all, economics is a difficult concept to grasp, and people (as a collective) usually cannot understand the mistakes they’ve done until some professors in […]

Pointless CEO Pay Ratio Rule Is Pointless

Pointless CEO Pay Ratio Rule Is Pointless

This is also what happens when you allow just anyone to write, draft and propose laws for our financial sector. As a result, you get this rather pointless and silly CEO Pay Ratio rule, as a requirement for the Dodd-Frank Act of 2008. Some small background into the fact, as a response to the 2008 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
