I was reading the thread, he was getting savaged by most. Fun afternoon reading.
I understand where you are coming from. However, It would have to be hundreds of pensions funds. All of these funds have very strict caps on investment concentrations and liquidity requirements. Of the say $360B CalPERS has under management, as of 2017 I think they limit global equities to 50% or so. After that, (I…
Larger Pension funds have been buying companies directly for years. The big Canadian ones like Ontario Teachers Pension (I know Canadian) has a PE arm buying companies directly. GE Pension had a group as well when I was there. CalPERS has been considering doing this (they were in 2017 anyway).
Tiny houses too.
I told the minority of the population that backs me there would be so much winning. What is all of this compromising?
This is not for inpatient 30 day programs. The article I looked at was for the cost of drugs. I did some more reading and there are free programs but outpatient can be from $1,000 to $11,000 per program. Sorry. Still the point remains its cheaper to treat then incarcerate.
Just to continue, a quick look shows it costs each state between 30k and 70k per year to incarcerate a person. What if we could use that money to treat and reintegrate addicts back into into society?
I read through their press release and it appears the store owners were not required to purchase TV products. If that is the case the local store owners can opt out of selling that brand and sell other brands that may be more profitable to the local owners. The co-op does have a volumn and rebate program in place…
Thank you, this is great. You have refilled my list.
I am 48 and just got into it about 18 months ago. I watch it regularly now. Not sure I am deep into it as some say, but I went to a bunch of sites and looked up the top anime of all time and started from there.
I said ......... you can’t buy no table like that!
So if I read your points correctly, your agrument is only people who are already rich can start small businesses due to $$, they all exploit labor to make themselves richer, do no work at all in their businesses because they are rich and take all the proceeds from any sale all for themselves?
Do you think these True Value owners were already rich when they started their stores? Most of these guys were the local HW store that joined the Co-op for buying benefits.
If the workers took the equity risk to start the business then they will be rewarded with the other owners with the equity gains. If the individual store owners want to reward employees bonuses I am all for it. Unfortunately it is a long shot that happens as we both know.
The linked article states that the current store owners split $229mm of proceeds and still retain 30% ownership. Seems like a pretty good deal for them.
His ratings would plummet, fool us once shame on you, fool us twice shame on us... oh wait - we are truly screwed.
Quick related story, you should see all the pearl clutching in Westport CT over plans to open a marijuana dispensary. Sure ladies, this is where you make your stand, maraijuana? I’ll just ignore your addictions to diet pills and opioids and the coke being sold and the vaping at the HS.
