Hey /biz/. I finally told my parents to fuck off. Got kicked out, tuition has been cut off (no more college next semester), and I'm having way too much trouble getting a job in asiantown where I moved to with a friend.
Need to find a way to make at least $400 for rent or I get kicked out.
Shoot ideas at me for what I should dedicate my life to.
Contemplating joining the military so I don't die within a month. Alternatives?
>>1016025 >has problems with PARENTS >thinks joining the military is better Cmon son you are certified retarded, but I'm gonna help you out here because I'm sucha nice guy and all. Well looking at the math, it looks like you'll need to suck 400 dicks at $1 a piece
So with the fed raising interest rates what are traditionally the moves to make?
Are we to just accept that things will be tighter and we will make less money or is there any kind of silver lining to it?
Im pretty upset, I had an opportunity to invest directly in some oil wells and then oil crashed, now I have been trying to get a good deal on a piece of real estate and rates are going up. I feel like a boat missing piece of shit right now. Feels like all the parties are ending as soon as I have saved up enough money to do anything.
Pay more careful attention to what's been happening to the money supply than just interest rates anon.

Has anyone here ever applied for a job listing online and then gotten a reply that is obviously some sort of scam? What do you do about it?
I just applied for a job on craigslist, then almost immediately got a email about it with Indian-tier grammar asking for all my personal information and a lot of weird shit. When i checked craigslist the ad had been deleted. I called the phone number in the email (Which said text only, with an out of area area code) and got a voicemail for someone with a different name then the one given in the email.

>>1015864 Got one Indian who cold called and aggressively asked for my passport or drivers license # before I even knew anything about the position. Told her to fuck off. She still had the gall to email me 10 minutes later.
In your case, I'd probably just watch out for any sort of identity theft. It's also quite possible the job was legit and they simply filled the position. Recruiters ask for all sorts of shit.
When I was about 15 years old, I applied for a job on a reputable online jobs board. the vacancy was seeking somebody to work from home doing data entry. the organisation was supposedly German.
they put me to work straight away, and I did a bunch of data entry on a spreadsheet for them. didn't seem too suss at the time.
got paid a week or so later, but before I could spend the cash, my account got frozen by my bank. It was reported that i had stolen funds in my account. Turns out, the company had paid me with funds that they had stolen from a random someone's account. In my statement, the payment read like it was a domestic transaction from one personal account into mine.
I had to go in for a meeting with my bank and hand over evidence of my correspondence, and get it all witnessed by police etc. I was pretty young at the time. I remember being mostly pissed off that the jobs noticeboard would advertise a scam. lesson learned.
Hypothetical question: let's say you gain insight into the future and become almost certain, that the at least moderately wealthy people from your generation will live at average 200+ years (some possibly much longer), if they dole out cash for various procedures later in life.
How does that change your outlook on investment and your business? Which financial tools become more and which less attractive for the long, looong haul?
If you want specifying let us assume it will be via extension of regular medicine. There won't be any flashing lasers or miracle elixirs to rally against in some kind of pseudo-philosophical luddite/lumpenprole rage. Just a bunch of different therapies treating various age-related problems and frailty. Lets assume the optimistic scenario, where younger generations don't... Comment too long.

So tired of working six days a week for $150 edition.
Since the possibility of finishing my degree slips further and further away, I'm currently stuck at my minimum wage job. It wouldn't even be so bad if employers actually gave you hours as requested, I suppose. I went from 57 hours a week spread over 5-6 dyas to 29 hours spread over six days. Given my commute, that's six hours a week of just burning gas to get there and go home. The new management loves spreading hour small hour-amounts over the entire week and it's pissing me off.
Anyway... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1015760 First off there should be no min wage. Who do you think pays for your wage? The customers If your wage goes up the price of goods go up. That means you in the end pay more and you're in the same spot.
I just graduated university with a finance degree and I have a lot of internship experience under my belt (Buy-side credit internship 1yr+). Should I immediately start applying for investment analyst jobs or is there something more junior I should do?
>>1015664 A 1 year internship and you never asked the bosses how to get their job? Shit man, that was my first question I asked during my job interview and he explained the whole path he took to get where he was, starting from my position. You had a year to do that?
Previous studies have found that a few TNCs own large chunks of the world’s economy, but they included only a limited number of companies and omitted indirect ownerships, so could not say how this affected the global economy – whether it made it more or less stable, for instance.
The Zurich team can. From Orbis 2007, a database listing 37 million companies and investors worldwide, they pulled out all 43,060 TNCs and the share ownerships linking them. Then they constructed a model of which companies controlled others through shareholding networks, coupled with each company’s operating revenues, to map the structure of economic power.
The work, to be published in PLoS One, revealed a core of 1318 companies with interlocking ownerships (see image). Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20. What’s more, although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318 appeared to collectively own through their shares the majority of the world’s large blue chip and manufacturing firms – the “real” economy – representing a further 60 per cent of global revenues.
When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies – all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity – that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. “In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network,” says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.
Imagine you're a bank and have billions to invest. Then you can pretty much buy lots of businesses. But you don't want to buy them and get too involved in them, you just want to spread your risks around. So you buy chunks of thousands of companies.
And all major businesses do this. Banks, insurance companies, pension funds, oil companies, big tech companies, food companies etc. They cant just keep sitting on their cash, they have to do something with it. So you end up with a couple companies that own everything on paper.
