Ok biz, simple and straight to the point. My retarded friend believes that the AUD is STRONGER than the Euro to the dollar. Can someone please give an elaborate statement to why that is fucking incorrect along with an example . Thanks
Might seem like a stupid question, but apart from things like GDP decreasing, how do you actually tell that whatever country youre in is experiencing a recession?
For example im in NewZealand and want to capitalize off a recession and buy stocks, at what point do I know that my country is in a recessive state? OCR is low? Rely on the news if they report unemployment is rising?
Or is going on google and looking at countries history of GDP and look at the business cycle which peaks and troughs every 8 years or so? (I think?)
Just look at the increase of money that has to compensate the expenses of the government. For example, real one though, The US government is in deep debt shit and is increasing tax money, insurance, tuition money etc, money has to come from somewhere to make up for the economic downturn the nation is experiencing. The United States will fall if it does not reform it's economy. They're depending on their currency value mostly now. "Hurr durr it's okay the country is going to shit, everyone is buying our currency" - stupid government. What they don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Sup /biz/. Long story short my dad is dying of terminal brain cancer in 6months. He has never really been there gor me and has pretty much nothing at all of value to pass on to me. Here's my question. If i were to open some credit cards in his name, in no way associate myself with the accounts, and use them to buy a bunch of shit for myself. What happens to the debt when he dies? Im 22 in cali if that matters. Have never really dealt with any sort of credit so i literally have no idea how it works .
>>1027743 How do they go about reposessing it if its all with me a few hundred miles away and i have no real connection to him? Or if i just sell it all for cash? Like i said he has literally nothing of value for them to take
I am set to graduate in June with a four year degree and no student loan debt. I will also have around 6k saved by then. I have not worked during school, only summers. I come from a poor family (one income <20k for 4). Ask me anything about affordable college.
And is it possible to study in College while living on your own without any financial help from your parents? I have to do this soon and I am not sure how I will pay for tuition + living expenses while studying.
>>1027678 Honestly, it is all scholarships. I applied to over 40 senior year of hs and ended up receiving 19k for my freshman year, not including state and federal grants. I go to a less expensive state school which also helps. Make sure to do your FAFSA soon to get money for next year. I was not an amazing kid in hs, I just filled out all the paperwork and received scholarships no one else applied for. I even got one for black students but they gave it to me (white) because I was the only one to apply.
>>1027678 Also, it is totally possible to do without parent support. I rent a house off campus with one other roommate and have a 3.5 GPA in mechanical engineering. Just apply for all possible scholarships. It sucks doing them but it is so worth it in the end.
I was watching An Idiot Abroad and Karl was in Japan. Whilst he was there he did a job called a "Benriyah." I am probably spelling it wrong, though.
What they did would be simply to do jobs people didn't or couldn't do. He washed a lady's windows for her, so there's that. I researched it a bit and they're basically like simple, convenient handymen.
If someone were to start this in the US would it potentially be lucrative? Seems like an interesting idea, honestly. Could help out old folks too.
>>1027669 Pretty much. CL or Taskrabbit your skills OP. If you don't fuck up or flake on appointments you might not get rich but not a bad way to pick up a few $$. Have a personality. >once worked for a temp agency and spent 3 days rearranging furniture in some old lady's house basically because she was lonely.
Pic slightly related, I will begin with some background information before asking my question.
>be 18 >dad is a tradesman, works as a concrete finisher >he's 3rd highest paid worker, and considered the best finisher >takes me to work wtih him over summer and during breaks >meant to teach me the value of hardwork + to stay in school so im not breaking my back >the owner takes a liking...

>>1027613 If he hasn't specified what type then I doubt the owner cares too much what degree you get. College educations are super broad in general and only give you the minimum toolset to get hired. You'll be learning most of the necessary skills on the job, during your summers and co-ops with this guy. The reason he would be interested in you becoming an eng in the first place is because that leads to a p.eng which can then let you approve and sign off on plans and shit. That being said, yeah civil is probably your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I work for a gift card re-seller. They buy unwanted cards for less than what they are worth, and sell them for still less than what they are worth but for more than they bought them for. My company gets a lot of its cards from a few people who sell large bulk orders of cards. Like 600 Walmart cards, all $25.
I have been trying to figure out where the hell the people who sell these large bulk orders to my company get their cards from. Obviously these people are making a profit from it, but where could they get these cards for lower price than the already heavily discounted... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm a man who has a huge difference then the rest of his family. Some of you who know social science might judge me and tell me where I am going to end up, but, I'm a risk taker. I can do something other people cannot do during my generation. I can work, keep working, and save money without having much pleasure in the middle of it all, essentially for as long as I need, till I get the job done.
When you work without a direction, your blood pressure increases from stress and you end up trying to find new ways to deal with stress.

>>1027554 I already know about how in the future, humanity becomes consciously entangled into one mind that people now, call god, and we change the nature of our desires to meet the needs of that god created by our conscious entanglement.
>>1027560 I disagree. I don't think there are any mechanics for this kind of thing occurring except in a transhumanist framework, and I find even that implausible. A pre-existing, supernatural first cause as God, though.
I don't want to derail your thread any further, but give it a thought later and come to your own conclusion. Bump.
>>1027546 If you have and friends that work for one of the companies, you should try asking them for some questions regarding moves that said company will make in the future. Only suckers watch stock tv channels, all the pros make their move long before any information gets released to the common plebs Don't be a sucker anon.
>>1027546 There's no way to "know" all you can do is control your risk.
there are two extremes. here. Warren Buffett went and met with leadership personally of his first major investments. There were many companies that he crossed off his list b/c the people sucked. Then he went Balls deep and put 70% of his money in Ben Graham's company. He knew his Metrics and he knew the people and made the most educated bet possible on the best people with the best metrics.

I think the dog adoption thing could be interesting.
Not so down on the whole church thing. I'm not a piece of shit and I certainly don't want to incur God's wrath even if the people are willingly (naively) giving me money. That is televangelist tier and I'm not scum.
A fun run to help herpes victims or something like that. 5 or 10k is a good distance even better if there's a natural distance from Point A to B or loop around a park/top of a hill and back. . Roughly $30 entry fee, get other local charities or high schools to help with crowd control/finish line shit. Sell vendor stalls to food truck dicks at finish line. Print up finisher shirts for a couple of bucks. Enlist local businesses to donate/sponsor 'teams' of employees. Get on local media for free (tv/radio/newspaper) to pump your event. Get on TV showing you handing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
