Another day, another city. At least I saw a really cool sculpture today.
Ryan just posted Reason #73 He Hates Airports. Hint – “Caution, the moving walkway is nearing its end, please watch your step. Thank you.”
I’m betting you’re in Pittsburgh at Carnegie Mellon, but you could’ve been in dallas:
Looks like Carnegie Mellon’s “Walking to the Sky” sculpture!
Yes, Mr. Big Stuff, who do you think you are? You think you can afford to mess with globalization? Are even the big guys on Wall St. getting tired of being pushed around by mad global capital, operating through hedge funds? It looks that way.
Now John Castellani is worried about hedge fund takeovers. Mr. Castellani is the head of the business rountable. In an op-ed in the Wall St. Journal, Castellani argues against a pending SEC (security and exchange commission) that would allow stockholders to have direct voting rights in electing board members. He warns that short-term speculators (meaning hedge funds and private equity funds) will use the new ruling to movi in and loot the companies. A suit brought by AFSCME trade union against American Insurance Group (AIG) is the venue for the SEC ruling, although Castellani appears to be more concerned about speculators.
