How Companies Should Raise Prices

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

An article in today’s WSJ talked about how companies should and should not raise their prices. Honestly, I think the best way to do it, is just raise them. Don’t cover them up by trying to be sneaky. I hate size reductions and fewer products per package (even thigh the package stays the same size). […]

Will More Doctors Dump Insurance Companies?

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

I like this idea: Doctors Dump Insurance Plans, Charge Patience Less. Thirty-two-year old family physician Doug Nunamaker of Wichita, Kan., said after five years of dealing with the red tape of health insurance companies and the high overhead for the staff he hired just to deal with paperwork, he switched to a system of charging […]

Friday, September 7th, 2012

I don’t know about you guys but I think it’s misleading the way the unemployment rate is calculated. Today’s employment report shows that 96,000 jobs were added in August. I did a quick search and found that we need to add about 250,000 jobs per month in order to drop the unemployment rate. We added […]

OT: New LeBron Nike Shoes to Cost Over $300

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Would you pay $315 for a pair of these? According to the article linked to in the picture, Nike is charging so much in order to pass on increased costs of production. Interesting. I wonder how many people will get trampled over these shoes?

RIP, Smart Money

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

Received the most recent issue of Smart Money yesterday. This note was attached: I’m kinda sad to see it go. It’s just another indication of just how difficult the publishing industry has become.
