with Karen Ho, a University of Minnesota anthropologist who spent some time working on Wall Street and lays the blame for our rent-a-job work culture firmly at the feet of investment bankers. She says: What I found in my research was that in many ways investment bankers and how they approach work became a model for how work should be conducted...

The kind of worker they imagine is a worker like themselves. A worker who is constantly retraining, a worker ...

It has also proven influential in inspiring people to work on Wall Street with Sheen, Douglas and Stone commenting over the years how people still approach them and say that they became stockbrokers because of their respective characters in the film. Stone and Douglas have reunited for a sequel titled Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps , which will be released on September 24, 2010.

is to raise the age of full benefits eligibility from 65 to 70 is wrong. There are other ways to fix social security other than raising the retirement age. The most obvious is to remove the cap that limits the social security payroll tax to only those incomes below $106,800 (the ceiling for 2009). Currently all incomes above that limit do not contribute to the social security trust fund. But there should be no upper limit. As Kevin Drum points out in a handy chart, that one move alone would solve the Social Security problem but there are other ways. Of course, lifting the cap on earnings that are subject to the social security ... market research, surveys and trends

that investment bankers on Wall Street are skeptical of California’s high speed rail project. Unfortunately, Lockyer has offered neither evidence nor details of these statements, so we can’t really respond to them directly. (That’s not to say Lockyer is making it up, I’m sure he has heard these things.) But we do have some evidence that investment bankers are bullish on HSR in general. Last week UBS published the following study on HSR in Asia. Thanks to Missiondweller for sending this to me.

What Happened at the 'Enron of Kansas'?
Hard as it is to fathom, some three years into the worst financial crisis of our lifetimes, not a single Wall Street or corporate executive has been held accountable for it. In October 2009, a federal jury in Brooklyn acquitted the two Bear Stearns’ hedge-fund managers , Ralph Cioffi and Matthew Tannin, on fraud charges. And, despite Anton Valukas’s damning 2,200-page report about the last, fatal years at Lehman Brothers — a virtual litigation roadmap — no Lehman executives have been indicted for the destruction of the firm. No Merrill Lynch executives appear to have even been investigated for driving the firm to the edge of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Blagojevich insisted that he did nothing illegal, that the prosecution only proved that he was "brainstorming about some ideas." He added, "Yes, they proved some of the ideas were stupid. They also proved some of the ideas were good." The loquacious Blagojevich concluded with a lesson learned. "I would ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How did the increase in the interest rates in the early 80s ...
The U.S. Federal Reserve under Paul Volker raised the federal funds rate to reduce inflation in the U.S.; other interest rates of course followed. With "safe" money from the Fed at 20% in 1981, commercial banks were eager to offer much more than 5% to depositors to attract cheaper money. Depositors withdrew their money from S&Ls and deposited it in higher interest accounts. (Wouldn't you?) At the same time, high interest rates reduced the value of S&L assets (loans on houses). The present value of a mortgaged property with a given assessed value at 20% interest is a whole lot less than the same property at 5% interest. ...
Why is Bill Heard closing local Chevrolet dealerships?
Nobody sold more cars in Georgia than Bill Heard. He was the nation’s 11th-biggest automobile dealer, the world’s largest Chevrolet retailer. He was, as his ubiquitous advertisements put it, “Mr. Big Volume.” No credit? No problem. All loan applications accepted. It’s all about the payments. These advertising slogans became tenets that helped guide Columbus-based Bill Heard Enterprises as it grew to 15 dealerships in seven states, including four in metro Atlanta, with sales topping $2 billion a year. And, ultimately, they became millstones that hastened the firm’s demise. Heard Enterprises abruptly shut down all its dealerships ...
