Laid off by Lehman

Thursday, October 16, 2008

A former broker at Lehman Brothers explains how life has changed over the last month. Nice piano music - you almost expect to see Woody Allen appear (hat tip JE).


Favorite line:
I walked up to the casino table with nothing really in my pocket. And I'm leavin' with nothing really in my pocket. But in between that time? Man, was I on a roll.

Pretty hilarious!

Does make a good point though: who the hell is going to pay someone to cook/clean/organize closets/make you exercise/walk your dog in the coming lean times?

Better get some skills folks!

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......filing chapter 11 protection.

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

Who fault?

They bailout trouble finance company, but they will not bail out your credit card bills…….Should they have use the bail out $$ to pump into all different industries instead ……You got no choice, and no point pointing finger but you can prevent similar things from happen again……

Are you a partisan?

*
Since the bailout already done, the question now is besides letting the economic back on track, what regulation should be done to prevent similar things from happen again…..

Eg.
The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) monthly salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take well care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......because the top management will be concern about their own pay check…… Instead of spending big money on hotel stay and luxury function……..

Whenever anywhere, anytime, there is election campaign.....We can use this to question your candidate there….. if you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible.... Finance and Media are the two only industries can shaken politics ( Maybe Hackers can ), please help to highlight also...

Too funny...whats a rub and tug? There is a still a strong demand for talent as gauged by lots of high paying jobs posted on popular employment sites:

www.linkedin.com (networking)
www.indeed.com (aggregated listings)
www.realmatch.com (matches you to jobs)

I see plenty of living wage jobs and a few 6 figure jobs too.
