>>1038344 people forced buttcoin into existence, they then gave them an imaginairy value and started selling them to NEETs, you could also force your own bitcoins into existence through "mining" them, out of nowhere, which is time consuming and will kill your electrical bill
The actual value of bitcoins are as much as someone can convince someone else to pay for it, basicly, if i make "asscoin" right this minute, the value will be however much i can convince you to pay for it, it is then your job to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Chinese client of mine that I trust implicitly let me in on a deal- We're buying a dinky, rundown motel that's sitting on $200 million+ in land for $175 million.
Chinese wants to buy the property, and put it back on the market for 225 mil as a teardown and sell it to another chinese that will spend the hundreds of millions to turn it into a top class luxury motel, and sell 50 million dollar penthouses.
Anyway, he offered me 2% of the property for 3.5 million $ and I gave it to him.
This guy, I've made more than 3 and a half million doing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Are we due for another bubble burst of the housing market prices? I am looking to purchase a home soon in the DC Metro area but was considering waiting til prices get lower. I am in the market for a place between 350k-400k.
For everyone who avoided the typical Degree > internship > 9-5, did it pay off? I see so many NEETs trying to start instagram t-shirt businesses dodging the "rat-race" and all they can show for it is a jack-shit business any 16 year old with a PC can start.
I truly don't believe I can start a business in less then 4 years before I graduate college that will pay more than 10k a year.
So I plan on going the smart route. Going to CC, transfer to a university, intern, then get a decent office job.
I might do accounting or computer science,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

so I run a modest retail business and I'm suffering badly from online competition
you might think "they just have lower costs, so they win", but here's what I see every day
people come into my store, try my clothes on, take photo's of EVERYTHING, the shop the clothes then when they find something they like, they walk home and fed-ex it from china. I bear the cost of maintaining the store, but I don't get the profit
I also have a real problem with protecting my advertisements, online operators will come into my store posing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you're in a market which is prone to impulse buys (e.g. candy) maybe there's a way to entice consumers to buy immediately otherwise if it's more of a considered purchase maybe you could work on really being the friendly, helpful type that answers all their questions and differentiates themselves that way.
>>1038175 I'm in retail fashion, at the end of the day most sales are people browsing so we put most of our energy into making on the spot sales, but customers are on a spectrum when it comes to impassivity and we're loosing too many off the prudent end
>>1038179 at least my competition is like a swarm of bees, not a bear it's lots of backyard operators mainly
the problem is they have no knowledge/regard for the law, they often pay no tax, employ bait advertising or other illegal sales tactics they infringe copy-write like it's a sport
their new style of economy discourages investment and development, in the long run they make it impossible for businesses to be stable and build supply chains; we go back o having bazars
>>1038161 200$ You gotta think of your returns. cmc no 11$ per trade, so now you're left with 189$ what increase do you need to break even? and will you invest more before this increase? then might as well wait till you got more,
Why does free market capitalism get such a bad rap? Why don't more people recognize that our standards of living are a result of the free enterprise system? Why are governments around the world trying to stifle economic freedom in favor of economic equality?
It upsets me that so many problems in countries' economies are caused by a failure to acknowledge the merits of free market capitalism.
Because not everyone in our countries have a good standard of living, and in countries like the USA not everyone has the same opportunities - education = expensive. Here in Australia we can study with no cash upfront and no interest and it costs a 3rd of what it does in the states. But we still have homeless, we still have poor, we still have people who struggle because they grew up in shitcreek and never knew how to be an adult.
Capitalism works but it has its flaws. If 1/3rd of the super rich people's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
