CEO Greed Still Abounds

September 30, 2013 – Comments (38) | RELATED TICKERS: FOR , SH , AME

How does the CEO of Cisco John Chambers justify an EIGHTY percent raise in salary to $21 million?  $11 million isn't enough for him?  Would he reward all the CISCO employees with an 80% raise?  The greed just continues.  And who had to have supported it?  Yup a bunch of other CEOs from other companies, to wit:   [more]



Deja Vu all over again

September 26, 2013 – Comments (13) | RELATED TICKERS: ES , TS

The Great Recession knocked the heck out of my portfolio.  I blame many people for that, not just one political party.  But I finally was getting my portfolio back in shape when here comes House Republicans playing a game of "chicken" with the debt ceiling in 2011.

Larry Summers had the good sense to withdraw his name from FED Chairman consideration.  And the response by the world was to cheer.  I always made my feelings clear.  He is too much of a wild card for the job.  The market doesn't like surprises, and with Summers you would get them.  I also question his ability since I have blamed him with the causation of the "Great Crash."  After all it was he who guided President Clinton with repealing Glass-Steagall, something I have argued for years did tremendous harm.  [more]

I won't post at that site anymore.  They love to edit.  A least at TMF I can post basically instantly without any "proofreading".  Here is my reply to a supposed "author" and here was SA's response.  [more]
