Random poll: is the guy or girl who sits next do you at work a) forgoing a chair and instead squatting in front of his/her computer b) doing lunges and push-ups behind you or c) breathing alarmingly heavily and sweating profusely post-deskside workout in which he or she shouted things like “Market’s going up! Heart rate’s going up!”? If you answered no to all of the above, your office is apparently miles behind the curve.

One can’t help but get that vibe as Margaret Brennan and her colleague discuss the group of female business journalism students who posed in lingerie for a calendar in honor of Vladmir Putin’s 58th birthday, which features captions like “you put out the forest fire but I’m still burning.” I can tell you one network […]
You can’t go around rating “shitty deals” AAA and get away with it. I actually think it would be a good thing for rating agencies if they suffered some consequences for bad opinions.” “One of the problems is, when you have an institution who is allowed to write opinions that have enormous market impact, but […]
It’s an age-old question that deserves revisiting every now and then.

Please, God, for the love of watching Cody Willard pass out after one chug let the tip we just received be true.
