Re: Airlines

What stops new entrants from coming in?

Lack of gates, routes. Your $99 airline can always startup, but there's not a plethora of people that want to fly Detroit to Trenton. I guess you can be concerned about Etihad, Qatar, et al [more]

Nice back-tracking but here's what you wrote:

how banks were so much better run and more cautious in the 'old days...'

Re: Happy 85th!

In fact, a number of banks said very openly they did NOT want the money, but they were forced [more]

But a lot of public firms engage in questionable tactics. For example, how often do companies engage in substantial share buybacks at the same time top management sells? Yes, I know, management needs to diversify their personal

If there are going to be significant changes then the tax structure also has to change.
