performance fee debate gains pace special research report Photo by graphics8.nytimes.com
Six funds in the AFI indices are among the steadily rising number that use performance fees, but some panellists are far from convinced that such charges are appropriate on retail portfolios. Performance fees are an emotive subject. Proponents argue that such charges reward the skill of individual managers and encourage them to move away from the safety of benchmark investing. For others, the fees engender a culture of risk-taking or are simply a ploy by fund firms to boost ­profits.

Debt Rattle, August 30 2008: Broke Back Banking
The 10th bank to fail in the US this year, announced during the traditional Friday Happy Hour, was a faith-based institution by the name of Integrity. How is that not funny? We all intuitively understand that there is no safer place to park our money than directly in the sacred hands of Jerry Falwell and Ted Haggard (whose life story was so vividly portrayed in 'Brokeback Mountain'), the unblemished selfless messengers tirelessly relating the latest news, as it comes in, from the direct link to their Master. At first, you might think that it’s a pretty crazy way to approach banking, and wonder exactly where Hail ... market research, surveys and trends

Cindy Sheehan shakes up the Drone-Making Man
WASHINGTON D.C. - Cindy Sheehan, preparing to protest the US drones that kill civilians, has already shaken up the security patrol at General Atomics in DC. Before she left home, the General Atomics "landlord" called her, concerned about the protest on Thursday, July 8. After she arrived in DC, she was watched by General Atomics security. Also, Sheehan's wallet was stolen and someone attempted to run up a $911.00 bill for merchandise at Target. Backing up a bit, General Atomics is the maker of the Predator B drone that crashed near the US/Mexico border at Nogales, Arizona, in April of 2006.

I first heard this album back in 1974 and always wondered just what it meant. Thank you for the insight, very deep and if you think about it, very true. a wrote at 2006-10-07 08:16:12 The song is about a utopian army of babies crawling across the floor, and up the wall.

Google Answers: real estate broker
I just got my real estate broker license. I have been a sales person with a franchise. I am thinking about going independent for a while but fear the burden of admistration.
