"Process is the one aspect of investing that we can control. Yet all too often we focus on outcomes rather than process. Yet ironically, the best way of getting good outcomes is to follow a sound process. The research shows that holding people accountable for outcomes tends to lead to suboptimal performance, generally because they spend all their time worrying about the things they can't control. I'd advise a far better approach to assess people on the criteria of adherence to process." "Economics starts from a far worse place. It isn't a science, and often seems more interested in twisting the ...
Gold World News Flash
Think back a decade ago to mid-2000. The average person probably owned a single desktop computer and accessed the Internet through AOL ( AOL ) dial-up. Few people bought products on-line. Nearly everyone still purchased CDs to own music and VHS tapes to own movies (DVD did not outsell VHS until 2001). Film cameras were found in 90% of homes while digital cameras had only penetrated 10%. Digital cameras still took relatively small, low-quality photos - 3 megapixels was state-of-the-art at the time. Digital video was barely even being used in Hollywood, let alone in the hands of consumers. Most computer files were ... market research, surveys and trends

Unaffiliateds favor Udall, poll shows : Elections : The Rocky ...
Nearly two-thirds of Colorado's crucial unaffiliated voters prefer Mark Udall over Bob Schaffer, giving the Democratic congressman a double-digit lead in the U.S. Senate race. And more than half the voters said they believe Udall is more in touch with the concerns of average Colorado families, according to the latest Rocky Mountain News/CBS4 poll. Labeling Udall a "Boulder liberal" didn't have the effect Republicans had hoped, said the pollsters, Lori Weigel and Rick Ridder. "Liberal is not a dirty word anymore," Weigel said. "It's the Year of the Liberal," Ridder added. Udall leads ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The Bush Administration - The $3 Trillion War (Vanity Fair ...
After wildly lowballing the cost of the Iraq conflict at a mere $50 to $60 billion, the Bush administration has been concealing the full economic toll. The spending on military operations is merely the tip of a vast fiscal iceberg. In an excerpt from their new book, the authors calculate the grim bottom line. By Joseph E. Stiglitz and Linda J. Bilmes On March 19, 2008, the U.S. will have been in Iraq for five years. The Bush administration was wrong about the need for the Iraq war and about the benefits the war would bring to Iraq, to the region, and to America. It has also been wrong about the full cost of the war, and it ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Cutting Costs - News at London Business School
A “cost strategy” is a contradiction in terms. If it is a strategy, defined as a unique way of adding value, then costs are simply a measure of the monetary effort required to execute it. If cost is the focus of attention, then strategic thinking is superfluous. All that is required is the determination to cut costs. Costs, then, are not the basis of a strategy, but the result of putting it in play. Early in its history, the Ford Motor Company managed its costs supremely well by focusing on something else. Henry Ford arrived at the idea of mass production by first imagining the possibility of mass marketing. He ...

Should i pay it off all at once or on a schedule? - Yahoo! Answers
I just bought a car (used - in cash - today) for a move back to my hometown from my current city. Since I just quit my job and will be moving back in with my parents, my dad assumed that money will be tight and offered to finance the car at 5% for the next 5 years. This will result in me paying $1,500 more for the car than if I just buy it today. I don't want my parents to know the value of my liquid assets, so I'm tempted to say "ok" to the 5% 60 month plan. But I'm also stingy to save that $1,500. What to do? Member since: January 26, 2008 Total points: 1945 (Level 3) No. No. No. There is no ...

space, but we were sent the following in an email today which is, I think, the best explanation I have read regarding our current financial situation.

Samuelson ANY LIST OF INVENTIONS THAT HAVE transformed the human condition would include the plough, the printing press, the steam engine, and the generation of electricity.
