Re: Poll: Tale of a hypothetical kitty

Well, $100MM went in and the buy back was $1000MM so it returned 10 to 1. If you were one of the 500,000 shares sold to the company for the buyback you did well. If you were one of the people holding the 9.5mm shares that went to zero, it sucked.

Re: Done Deal: Kraft Foods Merges With Heinz

Re: We are now swimming in oil

The nature of the game has changed, and traditional economic theory seems a useless method of describing society.
