dropped by our house and explained how we could get the same cable and internet service we got from Comcast for half price if we switched providers. It was a pretty compelling argument — $29.95 for standard cable (plus they threw in Starz and Encore, even though they’re channels we don’t care about) and $22.95 for internet for 12 months, with no contract. With Comcast, we’d been paying $59.95 for standard cable and $42.95 for internet. I looked at the reviews for Astound services , and they were positive overall, although some people complained that their internet speeds were more comparable to DSL than ...

This is the point from which I could never return, And if I back down now then forever I burn. This is the point from which I could never retreat, Cause If I turn back now there can never be peace.

Rick Bookstaber: Physics Envy in Finance
a while ago on econophysics – the use of the tools of physics in economics – that featured the application of seismology to solve the problems of market crises. I can see the twists of logic that led to this approach: during an earthquake things shake around and fall, and during a market crisis things shake around and fall. Seismology predicts the former, so why not the latter? This type of logical leap too far is nothing new. I remember the popularity of Kalman filters and the application of the principles of torque to measure the strength of market turns (I’m not kidding) in the seventies. Later came the ... market research, surveys and trends

How to calculate net present value (NPV) – an introduction ...
and using NPV to calculate the valuation of this site. Since I haven’t written about corpoate finance in a while, I thought this might be a good change of pace. When we calculate DCFs, what we’re essentially trying to do is calculate the value of all the future cash flows at a given point in time, most often at the present moment. As discussed earlier, to do this, you need to know or forecast future cash flows in each period as well as have a discount rate in mind that reflects the riskiness of the project or events leading to the cash flows. One way to determine whether a project is worth accepting or not is to look ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Frugal Duchess: BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING LESSONS & TRENDS
It works in my house and I'm not alone. The folks at MasterCard put together a news release (featured below) about shopping, kids and money. The MasterCard release has some good information about back-to-school shopping trends. I like the part about discount stores the best. eBay is also a great spot for finding bargains in school supplies. Super cheap stuff, including new items that can be purchased in large supplies that will last for the entire school term. Anyway, here's the MasterCard text: " Parents use Back-to-School Shopping to Educate Children About Budgeting As parents leverage payment cards to manage ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

With FPPC Internet rules on horizon, Brown and Whitman experiment online
Jerry Brown's website about Meg Whitman's "myths" is the latest in a string of online gubernatorial campaign experiments. Who are Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown? Depends who you ask. Jerryfails.com would have you believe Brown’s life amounts to nothing but “a career politician with a legacy of broken promises and failure.” Meg-a-Myths.com barely stops short of calling Whitman a pathological liar, with Brown spokesman Sterling Clifford explaining the site exists because “Whitman is either incapable or unwilling to tell the truth about Jerry Brown, California or herself. If she won’t, we ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Seven panels. The figure plots the response to Cholesky one standard deviation innovations plus and minus two standard errors. Panel 1: Response of FFR to FFR. Data plotted as a curve. X axis displays the response and the standard errors of federal funds rate (FFR) to a one standard deviation shock to FFR. Y axis displays the estimation horizon, which is 24 months. This panel shows that the response of funds rate increases significantly and reaches its peak about 0.2 around month 6. It tapers off and becomes insignificant by month 12.

Investment group's experiments in finance contribute valuable ...
In many ways, the Owl Investment Group resembles any other student organization. Although there are 60 official members, the number of students that shows up on any given Wednesday night to learn about finance and business while enjoying a little socializing is usually closer to 25, and there’s a smaller core group that’s most involved. However, there is one thing—well, actually about 100,000 things—that make the group unique. In the 1970s an anonymous alumna donated $100,000 to Bryn Mawr with the express purpose of creating a student group that would introduce its members to the world of high finance by allowing ...
