Revenge of the MarxistsBefore you jump to any conclusions, do remember one of the core tenants of Marixism. Marx claimed that all capital (K) is really stored-up labor. For a quick primer, read here. The idea behind this is simple. All capital stores the value of labor that went into making that piece of capital. Thus... 3 years 6 months

Pacquiao III MarquezAnyone watch? These guys came head to head in 2004 and 2008, and both were close fights. Tonights was also very close. Thoughts? 3 years 6 months

Some Thoughts on InterviewsA few weeks ago, my father set up a meeting for me with his bosses boss. This guy basically runs wealth. This guy was brought out of retirement, in his mid-50's, to help a friend of his rebuild the WM division at the BB where my old man works. After a few minutes with him, he basically flat out... 3 years 7 months
Goodbye, BO to FO JumpMy old man works at UBS, and he was telling me about another consequence of the Adoboli "rogue trader" case: the end of bringing in employees from the back office or trade support to the front office. The reason is simple: these guys know firm processes and procedures, and thus, know the... 3 years 8 months
Bloomberg TechStarshttp://www.bloomberg.com/tv/shows/techstars/ Anyone watch it yet? The first episode was pretty good. Its a standard reality competition show. Except the teams are small companies looking for a big break. If you have any interest in tech, it might be worth checking out. 3 years 8 months
Violence Towards Your ResumeOver the past few weeks, as recruiting season roles around, many of you monkeys are asking for some resume advice. Yet, I've noticed many of the threads use specific catch phrases such as "murder my resume" or "destroy my resume". Why the use of violent terms when talking about your resume?... 3 years 8 months

Monkey Brawl: FB vs LNKD"Eddie: we haven't even figured out what the Internet IS yet" Isn't this a line from The Social Network? Patrick I agree with you. I've been on facebook for 6 years, I honestly don't see any reason at this point why I would switch to another social network when everything I've done for the... 2 years 12 months

CNBC v. Bloomberg ChannelBloomberg has actually been running a lot more "content" on nights, including original shows like TechStarsTV and The Mentor. They also run BloombergWest, Taking Stock, and Bloomberg Rewind reruns at night. Thus, they've been skimping on the Asia content, but Euro coverage usually begins around 1AM... 3 years 3 months

I've got a potentially big decision to make...I'd do CS. I think in the long run, its a more valuable degree. Why do you really want to do MBB? Software is more lucrative, its exciting, and it isn't going anywhere. The US has a serious shortage of good developer talent, and a degree in CS with Math is an incredible advantage. 3 years 4 months

House of Lies - Showtime new series[quote=Frieds]Two things... 1) House of Lies is hysterical. Don Cheadle is great. I love that Kristen Bell is back on the small screen and doing a show full time for another paid network (although Veronica Mars was pretty damned entertaining for basic cable) - and if you don't know what I'm... 3 years 4 months
