Hey, it’s not that bad.

Citigroup may have fallen from $55 to ninety-seven cents a share, but it’s still just barely smaller than Malaysia’s Bumiputra-Commerce Holdings Bhd and Turkey’s Akbank TAS.

Personally, I was bored with seeing “Shea Stadium” blaring out whenever I drove to the airports and I think a “Bumiputra-Commerce Holdings Stadium” sign will be an improvement, if the stadium walls are large enough to accommodate the name.

    Will be interesting to see by how much discretionary industries like sports, entertainment, retailing, travel, etc shrink over next 3-5 yrs…and by how much pay and endorsement deals for entertainers decrease

    Truly astonishing that numerous illiterate/innumerate sports players or talk show hosts or other entertainers can become centimillionaires or billionaires….makes even some of the dumb money in finance seem rather intelligent and “well-deserved”

  2. Anonymous, at least those “illiterate/innumerate sports players” are reasonably good at what they do. As Babe Ruth replied to the reporter who pointed out he was paid more than president Hoover: “I had a better year.”
