The Darkest of Dark on Black Friday

By | Nov 25, 2017

It seems Black Friday is upon us again. It’s funny that we take a day to reflect on how thankful we are for the things that we have, and the very next day trample and bludgeon each other to death trying to buy a bunch of stuff we don’t need. Every year we’re treated to […]

Good Riddance 2009

By | Jan 4, 2010

Last year saw a lot of ups and downs. We started off watching the car industry with some disgust, questioning the culture of mediocrity that allowed the situation to spiral out of control. We say: Too big to fall? Too big to exist. Get on top of your credit and take control of your life. […]

The East Wants In

By | Nov 11, 2009

photo credit: ccwen7 Trying to identify the exact point where you’ve peaked and begun to decline is easy in hindsight but impossible while you’re living it. There is a lot of talk about the end of the recession, but the actual recovery seems to differ from region to region. Kind of like peak oil, it […]

Venture Capitalists are Crashing the Party

By | Apr 14, 2009

Apparantly venture capitalists are considered part of the larger economic problem, posing a significant risk to the stability of the financial system; even though the average VC doesn’t use debt and draws its funds from wealthy investors (e.g. the way companies are supposed to work. Conspiracy theory: maybe this re-arrangement is the beginning of the […]

Drink the Ocean

As ideal as it sounds, moving to green energy involves a dizzyingly complex series of factors. We must reduce our consumption – we can’t expect to move our energy source from coal to wind and still keep turning on the television and flipping the light switch in the way in which we have grown accustomed. […]

Apple’s made quite the resurgence in the last few years.  I remember when Apple Computers were the cheap, ugly computers the schools had that they bought a million years ago in some bad deal, and were now trying to teach computer use on obsolete machines.  Now, their systems are the favourite of latté sipping dorks in […]

California’s Approach to Green Energy

By | Feb 5, 2009

On the topic of Green Energy, California has been attempting to reduce energy use and waste output of cars. There is a somewhat interesting debate over the practically of ‘greener’ cars.  Seems it would safe to expect an addition $1000-5000 price tag on new vehicles, which would seriously hurt struggling manufacturers in the United States […]

The Credit History Mystery

By | Jan 23, 2009

Even though poor credit management is in large part responsible for the melt down we are currently trying to deny, the average North American is woefully ignorant of what it means to have a “credit history”. People generally know that when they apply for a credit card or loan, the banks somehow check their credit […]

Citigroup Splits

By | Jan 19, 2009

Despite their expensive newspaper ads insisting all is well, it turns out that Citigroup is in fact – wait for it – having problems! Now that the government is their biggest stakeholder with $45 billion in bailout funds, the company has basically abandoned its “lets become as big as we can” and has started selling […]

Circuit City Liquidates

By | Jan 16, 2009

My heart goes out to Circuit City today. They failed to overcome their harsh business environment and have been forced to liquidate their American holdings, putting 35,000 more people into the unemployment lines. It’s a tough market and the consumer and electronic goods they sell have thin profit margins. Next time you go to Best […]
