When Robert Nardelli lost his job as CEO of Home Depot in January 2007, he walked away with cash, stock options and other benefits valued at $210 million — and left a trail of angry shareholders in his wake.

Rising inflation and negative return on assets
Online diary to capture my random thoughts. The intention is to use this blog to "Share what I learn/know/see/think" and to "Sensitise people to causes I believe in".
