Ackman-Icahn Conflict Flow ChartThis is a very amusing flowchart...especially with the reference to the pyramids/Icahn being born. Defiantly worth a look over, especially as HLF will stay in the news for a while. 2 years 9 months
Chinese Commodity TradingThis article (link) isn't particularly new (11/12), but one of my classes was talking about it today and I was wondering if anyone here has any experience trading/brokering strange "commodities" with the Chinese.

The most... 2 years 10 months

I also don't know how familiar you are with RE loans, so forgive me if this sounds patronizing. With CRE, NOI is all that matters.
