    Toys R Us might be going out of business next week. And they won't be missed.

    I’ll miss them for the nostalgia aspect.

    Also, trump has now exempted Australia from the tariffs. Who thinks this is going to be exempt everybody but China in the end?

    If he wants to go Full Trump (you never go Full Trump!), he'll exempt them, too!
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

    I don't have children, so I don't care. But losing a major brick and mortar store is not great news for consumers.

    Not sure if it will actually play out this way, but if Amazon and the like kills off places like toys r us, it may open up the brick and mortar space for smaller independent retailers to have more success. That would be a good thing.

    Has anyone actually set foot in a Toys R Us since about 1999?

    Ask a parent of a 5 yo. But they've got a 15% market share...and that's a very good share for any retail segment.

    Boutiques in the books (and to a lesser extent toys) segment have been making a comeback for some time...which is great. Still there will be fewer places for kids to go shop and a new batch of unemployed. Its my opinion.

    This. There’s something lovely in letting your kid run through Toys R Us and picking out something to take home.

    From Elizabeth Warren's Facebook.

    Right now, about 40 of the biggest banks go through stress tests ever year, simulating a financial crisis and making sure they can survive. The #BankLobbyistAct says that 25 of them can skip the hard tests from now on. And for the remaining banks still doing stress tests, they can just be done “periodically.” Who decides what “periodically” means? The former investment bankers Donald Trump has sent to the Federal Reserve. Does that make you feel safe?

    Well that tax cut you received just went to pay for overnight parking at the home of the Mouse that Ate Florida.

    Yeah, this is not good and while the Republicans are more complicit I hope every Dem who signs on to that gets primaried.

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    We need a law making it illegal to bail them out. I see your Moral Hazard and raise you a shareholder death penalty unless you clean up your own shop. The taxpayers have left the building.

    Wow.

    http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/15/inve...oan/index.html

    Wells Fargo's CEO is getting a 36% raise after the bank's nightmare year

    And that's taking into account that he didn't receive any bonus pay this year.

    Sloan's $17.6 million is far less than what the CEOs of other big banks made last year. Citi CEO Michael Corbat made $23 million last year, while Goldman Sachs (GS) chief Lloyd Blankfein made $24 million. Bank of America boss Brian Moynihan received about $22 million.
    Wells Fargo said Sloan's pay was about 291 times what the median Wells Fargo worker made last year, according to new disclosures that American companies are required to make. The median salary at Wells Fargo was $60,446.
