Anyone who says you get what you pay for has probably never been on an airplane ride where just about everybody is paying a different fare, or in a hotel stocked with guests paying varying room rates. Or at least the person wasn't aware of it at the time. It's just a fact of life. An empty seat on a plane -- like an empty room, or a car sitting on the rental lot unreserved -- is a wash. The travel industry isn't a Dutch auction in which folks bid until capacity is reached and then everyone pays the lowest winning offer. Rates will fluctuate, and there are often discounts that will vary from source to source. How ...
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
Ask the Readers: Where to Start With the Stock Market?
Start with a discount online brokerage like Scottrade or Firstrade, which I use. The commisions are low, and they’ll do electronic transfers to and from your bank. Start with a couple hundred and pick an index fund, and watch it every couple days. You’ll be learning about the market, even if you can’t invest thousands. Don’t forget come tax time next year you’ll have to account for your investments, even if they’re small. Of course, I think we’re all amateurs here, so None Of Us Are Giving “Real” Advice[TM]. I’ll second the index fund recommendation… for now, at ... market research, surveys and trends

Unfortunately the war dragged on for six more years and eventually North Vietnam won. Take a look at North Vietnam today: Three decades later, Vietnam is a quasi-capitalist country, cultivating US investment, consumer markets, and tourism.

HobbySpace - Investing
I'm often surprised by how often people are surprised to learn that there exists a large commercial space industry. Historically, most space profits came from companies working down in our industrial infrastructure , which is mostly unseen by the general public. For example, the distribution of TV programs from Hollywood and New York to local cable providers has long been done via satellite. However, more and more space ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Online investing and women
day-trading and playing the stock market has always been a very male affair. Yet, over the past decade more and more women have joined in. Ten years ago, just 17% of the investors who used the online broker Selftrade were women. This year, it is 34%. This trend is not restricted to the one website. Stockopedia , a site specialising in broker research and stock market analysis, says between 30% and 40% of its user base is female. "Gone are the days when online investing was completely dominated by men," says Edward Croft, chief executive of Stockopedia. "There are increasing numbers of smart, savvy women out there ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Question: Find me some forums for discussions of retirement and ...
This one should be easy, but I'm feeling lazy. Find me, oh, say, half a dozen internet discussion forums on the issues regarding retirement and early retirement. The issues: health care after retirement, financial investments and management; maybe travel and lifestyle discussions. By "internet discussion forums" I mean something like http://boards.straightdope.com or http://www.thehighroad.org. These should not be sponsored and controlled by investment houses with an obvious interest in pushing only their products. The forums should be active with plenty of volume every day.
