Investing Something Tangible

investing something tangible special research report Photo by
Guest blogger Hawwa Mohammad, who works with The Center for Collaborative Change of Newark, explains how universities are commercializing research by linking professorial ideas with real business. The point is, pairing research and learning with business is a good idea, because universities are the nexus for community involvement. American Universities are changing the linear perception we have of higher education by creating a concept that brings together research and businesses to take ongoing research efforts and produce tangible results. The NYTimes recently featured an article titled “The Incubator Goes to Campus” that ...
send back to their home communities or families. Remittances are typically considered as the economic transactions from migrants to those at home. While remittances are also a subject of international development and policy debate and sociological and economic literature, this article focuses on ties with literature on gifting and reciprocity (cultural anthropology) or gift economy founded largely in the work of Marcel Mauss and Marshall Sahlins . While this entry focuses on remittances of money or goods, remittances also take the form of ideas and knowledge. For more on these, see Peggy Levitt 's work on "social ...

Wise Investing Made Simple by Larry Swedroe » My Money Blog
I’ve been getting back into reading financial books, but am really behind in writing reviews for them. One book I finished last month was Wise Investing Made Simple by Larry Swedroe, which promises “Tales to Enrich Your Future”. The key word is “tales”, because this is not a book with complex mathematical formulas or lots of charts and statistics. (Although I love charts…) It contains 27 short stories using simple concepts like sports analogies to explain the benefits of a long-term, passive approach to investing. Each story includes a quick “Moral of the Tale” summary. ... market research, surveys and trends


Household Net Worth: Financial and Tangible Assets | The Big Picture
interesting chart … if one plops an smooth exponential curve over the household net worth line, one sees the actual data deviating upwards from the curve in the neighborhood of 1980 (about the same time that HEL’s became popular — coincidence?). We are still a little above the idealized exponential mean, I think — but the thing that is missing is an overshoot past the mean … at least so far … I would expect to see household net worth eventually crater to the $40T-$45T range before it can manage any sustainable growth upward … Jus’ eyeball analytics, no fancy math involved here … industry trends, business articles and survey research
Investing in Surat
Surat is well known to diamond enthusiasts worldwide. Those who have an affinity for the brilliant gems will have a working knowledge of the city and its diamond industry.

Partly because of the diamond polishing industry and the other industries in the city, Surat has had the highest growth in terms of GDP in the whole of India, being at eleven and a half percent. The population in this city numbers at four million people, making it the ninth largest in the entire India and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Top 5 Mobile Commerce Trends for 2010
than misplace their cell phone, it’s fitting that the mobile world is quickly becoming a new hub for business. For many of us, our cell phone never leaves our side. It holds a place at the dinner table, is easily accessible in your bag’s front pocket, and often, somehow it even manages to end up sharing your pillow at night. Busy schedules mean people are often on the move and when marketers and companies can’t reach consumers at their computers, on TV, before the previews at the movies, with billboards, or magazine and newspaper ads, they must feel assured that they can still reach them on their cell phones. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Reckitt Benckiser's Bart Becht: a lean, clean sales machine
Bart Becht, the chief executive of Reckitt Benckiser, has proved many times that where there's muck, there's brass. Or more accurately in his case, where there's muck remover, there's brass. In April, the company confirmed Mr Becht took home a whopping £90m last year for running the maker of Dettol disinfectant and Harpic lavatory cleaner. So flush was he feeling after that, he gave close to £110m of Reckitt shares to charity. Despite the charitable donation, in public relations terms, Mr Becht's bumper payday could hardly have come at a worse time – the large bonuses ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How is the stock market different from gambling? - Yahoo! Answers
My friends say that it’s not the same, but I don’t understand how that’s true. When you look at companies like GM, enron, Bernie Madof and so on, I don’t see how it’s not gambling. After all, they looked like solid investments with good track records and people who ‘invested’ heavily lost everything. How is this different then just going to a casino and ‘dropping money’ on a card game? When it comes to the stock market, I have neither luck or skill, so I need to find other ways to invest. I’m averse to any kind of risk. Someone explain to me why this makes sense. I don’t get it. (other then the fact that the bank pays next to ...
General Stock Investment Strategies: NTA, net tangible assets ...
Does it mean "if the company had to dissolve tomorrow, this (NTA) is what a "Bargain Sale" of all their assets (after subtracting debt and liabilities) would bring you per share? If it is this, or something like this, how low could a company trade below NTA? How does it make sense that anyone would sell the share for an amount considerably less than NTA? Would it be simply due to "oppourtunity cost" (correct me if I'm using the wrong term here), ie. "put it somewhere else because if it goes bust, we will get our money back but it might take years to wind up" -- or are there other reasons? ...
