Bernanke Should Run Wal-Mart
A little cross-promotion action...wrote an "if they ran it story"...including the first two...click the link for the rest:
Sometimes, people just aren't doing the jobs they should be doing. No worries -- I'm here to help. Here are some of my suggestions:
Bernanke should run Wal-Mart
Sure, Wal-Mart's (NYSE: WMT) actually doing quite well in this economy. But Big Ben can fix that in a jiffy. As soon as he takes over, he'll kick "rollback savings" into overdrive. That $525 flatscreen TV that Wal-Mart now lists for $500? Pish posh. Try $400. Next week, $300. Give him a year, and it'll be down to a dollar.
Think you've got him cornered once Wal-Mart's a dollar store? Wrong. Wait for the introduction of "Wal-Mart Bucks" -- get those printing presses ready!
Britney Spears should run Blockbuster
Sure, she has no business experience. But like Blockbuster (NYSE: BBI), she has loads of experience peaking in the 90's and then slowly fading into oblivion.
OK, it's not the best idea ever, but my celebrity backups were Paris Hilton actually running Hilton, and Oprah buying Barnes & Noble.
