My New Interest: Finance & Robots

Posted on July 27, 2006. Filed under: bizz, ventures |

Its really strange how my playfull brain just jumps onto new things – to stay teased and occupied and learning. Ive earlier stated that robots are on the radar – and now Finance is also starting to be daily on the radar. Not stocks and shit – thats not for me – somehow its does not move me. But the big LBOs (Kapital buying enourmous companies – by restructuring their dept – and hedgefunds doing their good/bad impact – and now Im trying to find my way into that jungle – with HIGH ETICHS and 100% MORAL. It seems very simple – NOT EASY. … more to come.

Glad and impressed that you mention ethics and moral in capital letters, since the latter are unfortunately often absent in the LBO business. In case you have not heard of the following bad examples, here are two worthwhile sources you may want to check out:

(1) For an insightful and interesting (though a bit biased) documentation (54min) on The Carlyle Group and their interpretation of ethics, note the following link (as remarked on Wikipedia.com: do not get irritated by the first 1.43min of this program since is broadcast in Dutch, the remainder, however, is in English):

http://cgi.omroep.nl/cgi-bin/streams?/tv/vpro/tegenlicht/bb.20040125.rm?title=Bekijk%20hier%20de%20uitzending%20DE%20IJZEREN%20DRIEHOEK%20in%20realvideo%20BREEDBAND%20tot%20500%20kbs

(2) Another nice example on moral, ethics and greed in the LBO business see the classic book: Barbarian at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbarians_at_the_gate), which is a nice read and is probably still pretty accurate, though over 15 years old, and many of the actors are still active today.

Ahlan!
