...Tremont has denied the allegations. It stands to reason, then that if Tremont is liable, then it failed in its responsibilities as a sophisticated investor. If Tremont is not liable, then, it shows that sophisticated investors are incapable of monitoring. Indeed, without such allegedly sophisticated middlemen, Madoff could not have thrived. 506 One of, if not the, largest loser in the Madoff ponzi scheme was Fairfield Greenwich Group. Led by previously well-regarded, Walter Noel, Fairfield Greenwich lost over $7.5 billion, more than half of the $14.1 billion in assets it held in February of 2008.507 In between posing for magazine spreads and traveling between various homes in Greenwich, Palm Beach, Manhattan, Southampton and Mustique, 508 Mr. Noel, as a fiduciary was supposed to be keeping a watchful eye on his clients‘ money. Noel was the epitome of sophistication. He earned a masters in Economics and a law degree from Harvard. One of his partners at Fairfield Greenwich was formerly with the SEC. The problem, seemed to be that it became a capital introduction service for Madoff instead of a fiduciary to its clients. Indeed, his entire persona was straight from central casting, the elder statesman, evocative of honorable characters played by Jimmy Stewart and Gregory Peck, according to a friend and industry veteran. 509 Fairfield Greenwich charged clients annual fees of one percent of assets under management, plus 20% of capital gains on investments. According to one estimate...

...reality show called The Apprentice, where contestants vied for a high-level position working for Donald Trump. Each week, Trump fired one contestant and told everyone bluntly why they were fired. Trump’s reasons provide insight into improving project management skills, as follows: Leadership and professionalism are crucial. No matter how smart you are (the first candidate fired had degrees in medicine and business), you must be professional in how you deal with people and display some leadership potential. Know what your sponsor expects from the project, and learn from your mistakes. Jason, the second person and first project manager fired, decided not to take the time to meet with his project sponsors, causing his team to fail their assignment. Mr. Trump wanted everyone to remember that crucial mistake. 20 Trust your team and delegate decisions. Sam had several problems as a team member and project manager, but his lack of trust in and respect for and from his teammates led to his downfall. Know the business. Restaurants often have the highest profit margins on certain items, like drinks. Find out what’s most important to your business when running projects. One team focused on increasing bar sales, which generated the most profit, and easily won the competition that week. Stand up for yourself. When Trump fired Kristi over two other candidates, he explained his decision by saying that Kristi didn’t fight for herself, while the other two women did. Be a team player.......

...kung sira ang kilometrahe, hindi nagbibuilang ng distansiya ang pasahero. E ano kung kalbo ang gulong, drayber na ang bahalang magdumiin sa preno. Ang mahalaga’y bongga ang dyip sa mata ng pasahero, malakas ang stereo, makulay ang paligid; may kurtina, at nakakaakit ang rangya ng ilaw. May ekonomikong dahilan din ang drayber kung bakit nais niyang mapuno nang sobra-sobra sa kapasidad ang dyipni kahit lumabag siya sa batas. Mataas ang lahat—boundary; P70.00; diesoline P1.75; gasolina P3.00. At ang tong sa pulis na pag tumaas ang mga presyo’y tumataas din. Kaya ang drayber ay kinaiinisan. Pumaparada kahit bawat ihihinto ang pasahero kahit saan magaspang sumingit na tila laging may karera. Kailangan niyang kumita. Magbuunganga si Mrs. sa hindi kasyang panggastos. Mataas na rin ang presyo ng simpleng dibersiyong pag-inom ng beer at pagdalaw sa cabaret. Mahalin man o Itakwil Tulad ng pista, ang dyipni ay bahagi na ng buhay Pilipino. Katunayan, ang Ford, Toyota, Vokswagen at Chrysler ay mga kumpanyang multinasyonal na sumakay sa popularidad ng dyipni at lumikha ng mga ganitong sasakyan. Ngunit dahil nilikha nang maramihan, wala sa mga ito ang sining o ang disenyong baroque. Sa halip, isahang lagyan ng makulay na lamang. May ilang drayber ng Tamaraw na sumubok lagyan ng makulay na disenyo ang kanilang sasakyan upang makopya ang magic ng dyipni. Masyadong diretso ang linya ng mass produced na dyipni at hindi akma sa sensibilidad ng Pilipino. Gayunpaman,......

What would you have advised Mr. Myers to do on August 6? On 6th August I would have advised Mr Myers to hold on to the futures position even though his firm had already paid $690000 in variation margin calls. Mr Myers took short positions on the T-bill futures contracts in order to hedge the firm against the risk of rolling over the September 1 savings certificates at a high interest rate. Since his futures position is not a speculative position, he does not need to worry about the margin calls on his futures contracts. The strategy used for hedging with short futures contracts was as below: If interest rates rise, the futures price would fall and a profit would be registered. At the same time, the savings certificates would be rolled over at a higher interest rate. Therefore, the futures contract would offset his losses from the rollover at high......

...WHAT ELSE CAN GO WRONG? Joe Van West, President of Appliances Unlimited in Mexico, was thinking about his arrival in Mexico City and his life during the last six months as he was sitting in his office. He remembered getting the phone call late one evening while sitting in front of the TV in his house in Taipei, Taiwan, where he was Operations Manager of the local subsidiary of Appliances Unlimited, a Belgian firm. The phone call was to tell him that Mr. Brian Hodges, the President of the Mexican subsidiary of Appliances Unlimited, had a major heart attack and would retire immediately. Mr. Van West had met Mr. Hodges several times at meetings, but he did not know him very well. The caller, his friend at headquarters, Stijn Verckens, indicated that management at headquarters was looking for a speedy replacement for Hodges, and that Joe Van West should talk to the President of the International Division at Headquarters immediately. Van West had always wanted to run a subsidiary. It would be a great opportunity, and he did tell Verckens that he would think about it. Van West had gotten excellent reviews for his work as Operations Manager in Taipie. He was ready for the next step. He had hoped that there would be an opportunity in Canada or the United States, but he, an American citizen, and his wife, a native of Belgium, had decided a number of years ago that they would go wherever the opportunity presented itself. Van West talked to several people at headquarters,......

...quality of a scientific work, a scientist, or a university…we use our own standards that bear no resemblance to those used elsewhere. We even have scientific works and PhD theses in internationally significant fields like the basic sciences, economics, etc. that wouldn’t be worth the paper they are printed on if they were assessed according to international standards. Many of our professors do not deserve their title and a large number of them fall far below basic international standards. Ironically, there are many others, especially younger people, with excellent expertise and talent, but who are disqualified because of our trivial criteria that are of no consequence in other countries. As result, one is not surprised to learn that Mr. A or Ms. B who in Vietnam is regarded as famous scientist, is in fact totally unknown internationally. Recently, a great number of officials have acquired academic titles dishonestly; they are completely undeserving of these honors but many people still believe that they are reserved only for individuals of outstanding talent. Memorandum Higher Education Task Force November 2008 Page 10 of 11 Our standards are so chaotic and yet, the other day I heard the chairman of the Council on Professorships declare in a newspaper that to be entitled to the rank of professor one… must establish one’s own school of scholarship!
