So basically whenever people here seem to talk about wanting to work in finance, they always just seem to refer to fields such as investment banking, trading, or private equity, etc.
But obviously there are a whole other bunch of things you can do, like work as a treasury analyst, work in the financial analysis and planning team, or even move into corporate development or investor relations at large public companies.
Does anyone have experience or know much about working these kind of jobs? And general "alternative careers in finance" discussion.
What will have to happen for oil to go back up? Opec just needs to cut production?
I have a couple stocks in pipeline and refining which have been hurting but nothing like oil and has companies have been. My losses have almost been covered by dividends from the stocks over the last year anyway.
Thoughts on buying back into oil now or is it too soon?
What is the point of some of these scams? They are run via bots, some seem to be autonomous others seem to be actual people running them but operating them in a way that would make them seem like they are a bot.
It's fairly easy to tell who is a bot and who is not just from looking at the profile and pictures. Generally bots are empty profiles with some too much makeup too tan cleavage shot photo stolen from some Instagram selfie whore. Some are more sophisticated and fill in profile information...

What I am trying to identify and I'm looking for input here. As to what the end game is for these bot scams type operations. Tindmeet seems to be a clickbait dating site that probably steals credit card information. However I can see too many people actually falling for that.
Some of the accounts will carry on a small conversation before dropping the link or phone number, actually answering questions correctly and such, leading me to believe someone is actually physically using the account.
Generally with online dating scams your pretend to be a girl and see after a certain time of chatting and possibly even sending nudes you found online, request bus fare via WU for a meetup or stuff from an Amazon wishlist. If convincing enough, it is generally pretty easy to do. Was much more popular prior to video chat and skype. I just can't seem to find an explanation as to what the point is if its barely a profitable scheme.
What is everyone's experience with Tinder bots, is anyone running one?
Healthcare is clearly not left up to capitalism, it's by far the most regulated industry in the US. Insurance companies can't even sell across state lines. Some medicines can be sold in one state but not others. Often, companies are granted monopolies in certain states. The US government spends more on healthcare than any other program, including the military. The FCC, like healthcare regs, is designed to give big companies monopolies. It created barriers to entry so that Murdoch and the like can have a monopoly on the media.
I CAN'T stress enough the fact that all it takes to get rich in 10 to 15 years is holding a stack of 21 Bitcoins. I want to leave this really clear here, and I want everyone to take pictures of this. This is based on existing knowledge. If you do not agree, you haven't still researched enough what is going on. You simply don't get it yet. Your brain hasn't "clicked" yet into what the fuck is going on in front of your eyes due normalcy bias and other natural coping mechanisms.
Im going to give you this one last chance for you to get it. I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In the following posts i'll address classic ignorant arguments about Bitcoin.
>muh private blockchains
Blockchains, as a concept, are not controversial. Bitcoin is highly controversial. That is why the narrative changed – because “Bitcoin” makes financial professionals uncomfortable. There was no conspiracy to change the subject, it just happened naturally; the path of least resistance.
But what is it, exactly, that they hope to achieve by advancing private, non-Bitcoin blockchains? Without Bitcoin, a blockchain is just a distributed database – not exactly a novel technology. What is R3 CEV but a sexier and more social MySQL database? Why did banks not build such distributed ledgers long ago? If they are the arbiters of transactions, there is no need for mining, and thus no need for a blockchain, per se.
Perhaps such a distributed database never happened before because the banks haven’t felt the true competitive pressure to innovate. Banks’ biggest innovation in the last two decades was the Geithner Swap, in which loss due to excessive risk taking is swapped for taxpayer money. Banks aren’t so much financial innovators as they are lobbying cartels. But can you blame them? When Government forces its way into bed with you, who do you imagine you’ll wake up with?
It remains to be seen how long it takes for the financial industry to realize that the true valuable innovation is not the distributed ledger of the blockchain (which has existed in other forms prior), but rather the open platform of financial inclusion with no trusted party or cartel (which has never existed).
Blockchain technology, properly understood, is decentralized. It is an open platform. It does not pass judgement on human actions, it simply enables more action, more easily, to everyone. A blockchain strategy that doesn’t appreciate this is doomed in the same way and for the same reason as AOL and CompuServe. Does industry really need that lesson again?
Is it worth buying followers and likes on Instagram to 'kick start' a business? Like selling merchandise and stuff?
For only $30 I can literally buy 20,000 followers, and they will be fake, but people will see my pictures in the popular section because they're getting so many likes, and then they'll look at my account more, and maybe follow or like the pictures. Also, you can buy likes as well, and 500 or so likes per picture, will cost like $1.20, which isn't a lot if I'm only uploading like every 2 or 3 days. ($10 a month basically). It...

Thought about this recently too. Thinking about starting a small scale business with Instagram being the main platform and was thinking the same thing about my pictures of product being on the discover page.
