Why the fuck is it illegal to count cards? How is it wrong to apply a logical mathematical strategy to a game of chance that has skill applied to it? I mean out of all those casino games the card ones are all skill based the only games that are completely up to chance are dices and roulette. How is it not illegal for the dealer to never go first or have the house manipulate the odds?
We're slaves. Sheep and slaves. They gave the Indians a cut on our slavery for whatever fucking reason with gambling but pretty much everything runs like this.
>>1054679 >Why the fuck is it illegal to count cards? Are you literally retarded? It's only illegal if you use paper or a counting device. If your caught or suspected to be counting with only your mental faculties, the casino reserves the right to refuse your business, just like any privately owned establishment.

The three most important economists were Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and John Maynard Keynes.
Adam Smith and His Invisible Hand of Capitalism - Deep examination of the world of business affairs led Smith to the conclusion that collectively the individuals in society, each acting in his or her own self-interest, manage to produce and purchase the goods and services that they as a society require. He called the mechanism by which this self-regulation occurs “the invisible hand,” in his groundbreaking book, The Wealth of Nations, published in 1776, the year of America's... Comment too long.

I know you are all /biz/y people and I shouldn't bother you with my pleb concerns as a mere employee, but I need your advice /biz/.
I'm new to London and looking for a job. Found a few cool ones but noticed it's a practice to not go past the first interview unless you say how much money you want.
How do you negotiate that so that I can later pic related? Is there a way of being flexible without sounding desperate? Is there a way to at least find out if you priced yourself out so you can go lower next time?
Appreciate any tips. Some details... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Usually you wait until the employer brings it up, and based on your experience in that field you add a couple dollars. If you don't have a lot of experience you should say the average entry level rate.
>>1054433 No degree is inherently useless. If you work hard it's possible to make a career from any degree. The key is being astute enough to know which skills you should be learning in your spare time.
I have my degree in Economics (from a low tier university and only finished with 2:2) and while doing it I learnt Excel, SQL and Python along with it. Got a job two months before graduating earning £22,000 a year. Been there 2 years and I'm now earning £26,000 with a company car (Audi TT). I'm only 23... Comment too long.

>>1054447 >£22,000 not op, but 22k pre tax is 18k after and 26k pre tax is 20k after. Because the car is taxed as well (benefits in kind) the actual net is a bit lower. The lease on the car is probably about 2-2.5k extra per year worth of value.
I have a few questions regarding eBay: -How many views do you usually get before someone makes a bid in your auction? -How to get the initial rep to start selling stuff on eBay? Nobody seems to buy stuff from you if you have no rep. -What's the minimal rep required to be considered a more or less reliable seller?
>>1054413 By investing you are essentially paying someone to work for you and taking a small cut of the profits (if there are any) at the end. The distinct advantage to this compared to building your own business from the ground up is that because someone else is doing all the work you can keep your regular job/income. This way if the investment goes bad you have had and still have a steady source of income.
>>1054390 Stupid nigger I already did my homework, I've also read threads in whirlpool. I'm hoping to hear from those who did in terms of gaining relevant work experience if you don't have any and how useful it would be outside the reserves.
The world’s stock markets are spiralling down. The US equity market has fallen 10% in the last month, a figure that is called a ‘correction’ in investor terminology. That’s not yet a crash or ‘bear market’, usually measured as a 20% fall. But it’s going that way.
Stock markets are diving because it seems that the big investors, banks and financial institutions globally, are worried that China is imploding and planning to devalue its currency hugely, thus driving down the rest of emerging economies, many of which are already in recession (Brazil, Russia,...

Most of the doom-mongers concentrate on what they see is the kernel of a global slump: China. The RBS says that “China has set off a major correction and it is going to snowball… the epicentre of global stress is China, where debt-driven expansion has reached saturation. The country now faces a surge in capital flight and needs a “dramatically lower” currency.” Albert Edwards at Societe Generale has been predicting a deflationary slump for the last five years of global economic recovery. Now he is convinced that the Chinese crisis will lead to a global slump. “The... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The government was influenced by pro-capitalist economists in their ranks who have been continually arguing that the government must ‘open up’ the economy to foreign capital and private companies. The government should privatise the big state owned companies and banks, end capital controls and allow the Chinese yuan to become a freely fluctuating currency, it was argued. Indeed, just before the Chinese stock market and currency crash began, the government pushed for and got the Chinese yuan to be included in the IMF’s international reserve currency basket for the so-called...

The seeming incompetence of the Chinese authorities and the continued capital flight have now convinced many Western capitalist economists that China will suffer a ‘hard landing’ or economic slump, capitalist-style, and this will add to already diving emerging economies and drive the world into slump.
But does a collapse in the Chinese stock market and fall in the value of the yuan mean an economic slump in China? China is not a ‘normal’ capitalist economy. The power of the state remains dominant in industry, in the financial sector and in investment. Yes, the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
