OT: Chess appreciation

I always read the chess-related threads on this board with some bewilderment. This little podcast (an oldie but goodie, resurrected by Barry Ritholtz) was fun to listen to and I'm sure some on this board will find it interesting.

Re: Stillwater - BBSI

Higher workers comp rates in CA will make their programs more attractive to employers that can qualify.

Wouldn't they just go to reinsurers? I can't imagine they would allow themselves to get overburdened by any changes in workers [more]

Don't be hard on yourself. Having cash is an option on the inevitable upside. More valuable than a well-placed [more]

Re: Elon Musk

clearly a big risk taker

But he also knows how to compromise, understands the power of monopoly and knows how to play the tax code. He might not be a bad guy to coattail.

Re: The Redfield Porta-Pottie Index

While we're all offering up our individual perceptions that are probably irrelevant in the grand scheme of things I'll add that residential and commercial construction here in SW Las Vegas is partying like its 2005.

Re: The Relentless Bid

I'll bet a dollar to a dingdong that somebody on this board has considered demand for stocks vs. supply, how that has pushed the market along, and can link us to a scholarly article.

Re: $19 B ????!!!!???

I use this app non-stop all day long to communicate with family and friends in Brazil. It's more indispensible than skype as far as Brazil goes.

No idea how they'll get enough revenue to justify R$19B but these Facebook guys are pretty [more]

Re: Target (TGT)

There are no easy answers. Redistribution and higher taxes aren't going to change mating patterns, technology, and many other factors. You can't tax your way out of this. You're going to need the 0.1% and you're going to have to give them the tax [more]

Re: Tesla's Tipping Point

Besides the great design, mileage, etc, the Tesla might be the safest car on the road. Because they don't have to optimize for mpg they can make the car heavier than a sonofagun. It has performed extremely well in crash tests. This is enough to put [more]

Re: How are things going at Heinz, you ask?

Much of the griping and employee discontent may be a function of putting pressure on anyone that was coasting along in the family-run Heinz.

Touchy-feely things like employee happiness usually only work when times are flush and the money is [more]
