Lenders to Robert Dyas today backed a management buyout (MBO) of the high street hardware retailer in a last-ditch move that will save 1,200 jobs and prevent the 105-shop chain collapsing. The deal is expected to be concluded over the Easter weekend and means the financial interest of private equity firm Change Capital in the business, thought to be in the region of £10m, will be completely wiped out. The decision by Lloyds Banking Group , 43% owned by the government, to finance the management buyout of Robert Dyas is significant as it suggests the bank is increasingly aware of its role in stemming further job losses in the ...

Badtux the Snarky Penguin: The economics of buying an REO for cash
Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped. Over at Calculated Risk, we find that mortgage delinquencies are at an all-time high . Yet people looking for low end homes to buy (like me, until recently) complain that nothing is available -- the short sales are stuck in short-sale hell because half of the people who have listed their homes as a short sale have no intention or ability to go through with it (because seconds won't release their liens) and are just using it as a delaying tactic, and the foreclosures are going to cash ... market research, surveys and trends

Congress too partisan, spends too much
Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, made a campaign stop in Ketchum to discuss the war in Iraq, the future of Afghanistan and the federal deficit. He had just finished a trip into the nearby backcountry. Photo by David N. Seelig "There is money being spent on things that are just plain silly," Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, said last Thursday when asked why he didn't vote for extending unemployment benefits. While Simpson said he wasn't unequivocally opposed to unemployment benefits, he said he didn't vote for the most recent extension because the program isn't properly funded. "We have to stop spending phantom money ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Mortgage refinancing difficult for many
But with unemployment high, home prices low and lending standards back to more prudent levels, large numbers of homeowners can't qualify for a new loan and are locked into their existing ones. This is also thwarting the Federal Reserve's efforts to stimulate the economy by driving mortgage rates down. Normally when rates tumble, millions of Americans refinance their mortgages, which frees up cash they can tote over to Walmart, Best Buy or the nearest Toyota dealership. Although refinance applications have risen in recent weeks as mortgage rates have hit consecutive lows, they are not spiking as high as they did in ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Monopoly is a term used by economists to refer to the situation in which there is a single seller of a product (i.e., a good or service) for which there are no close substitutes. Governmental policy with regard to monopolies (e.g., permitting, prohibiting or regulating them) can have major effects not only on specific businesses and industries but also on the economy and society as a whole. Two Extreme Cases It can be useful when thinking about monopoly to look at two extreme cases. One is a pure monopoly, in which one company has complete control over the supply or sales of a product for which there are no good substitutes. The ...
Why doesn't Best Buy take my Bachelor's degree in Economics ...
In August 2007 I graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. My Cummulative GPA was 3.22 and throughout college I was active in a fraternity, served in the student government Senate, and did a 1 year internship with a motel as a supervisor. Yet when I graduated the best job I have found so far is working at Best Buy in Home Thearter making $11/hr full time with health benefits. Clearly I feel I deserve a better job with better pay. My question question is why doesn't management take my degree seriously when I have applied for management positions? They all say I need retail ...
