5% of People Need to Earn over $200,000 a Year to...Good to know WSO firmly represents that 5% (Granted, not sure how many monkeys on here are actually on CareerBuilder). @"AndyLouis" This had to be a poll on here at one point, right? It always amuses how different industries breed different levels of income as 'successful', even though it's been... 1 year 1 month

Is Allegiant Air the Future for Airlines?Today might just be as un-productive as the day after the Super Bowl. My office is a ghost town, and that is putting it mildly.

When Will the Chinese Learn? Apparently, someone forgot to pass along the message to the Chinese that the most important part of government bond auctions is making sure they can't fail.

ESPN and the Business of Sports Sports is a fascinating business to me. It is truly amazing how quickly sports have grown into billion dollar franchises with top end players making up to $30 million a year. Baffling. On top of it, the numbers for broadcasting rights keep climbing right along with them and frankly seem to be... 2 years 3 months
Counterfeit Condoms From China... Who Would Have...Look, I can understand counterfeiting Gucchi or Prada stuff and even electronics like Iphones. But Condoms... Really?? That is just... absolutely absurd. [quote]The police did not specify whether the condoms seized in the raid were faulty. Another recent case, however, gives reason to worry.... 2 years 3 months
Private Equity Taking Over the Housing MarketThis doesn't seem like it should end well. Large amounts of institutional money coming into the housing market, pushing prices up.
