Musings On Markets

As a few of you may know, I’ve used Disney as my lab case study in my own applied corporate finance reserve through three editions and fifteen years. I really like the company, and its products but have not looked after its management always. In fact, I have already been harsh about Eisner particularly, who I believe did serious damage to the company, in the last 10 years of his tenure especially.

While I’ve not had a chance to read Eisner’s reserve yet, I had been interested to read that he used his relationship with Frank Wells as one of the great partnerships that succeeded. On that count number, I completely agree. When Eisner came to Disney as CEO, from Paramount, the company was moribund; its theme parks were consistently getting old, its animated movies lacked pizzazz and the ghost of Walt Disney wandered through the halls. Eisner, along with his then side-kick Jeff Katzenberg, brought a fresh energy to the company that was complimented by the working savvy of Frank Wells, Disney’s Chief Operating Officer. Wells operated as a check on Eisner, channeling his visions to useful success.

By 1994, both men had transformed Disney around and wear it the road to as an entertainment powerhouse. In 1994, Wells died in a helicopter crash and the only person in the company with the capacity of reining in Eisner was gone. Eisner packed the Disney plank with me-too directors, too wanting to silicone stamp whatever he does considerably, and he let his manias and paranoia run rampant. My larger point, though, is not about Disney, but about why we need amounts and investigations in positions of power. Even the smartest, best-intentioned individuals have weaknesses. Sooner or later in time, without constraints, these weaknesses rise to the top and subsume the successes.

This will make it much harder to open up a store. Otherwise, at another financial downturn city staff (who often don’t reside in Sunnyvale) will insist that the only way to get more tax income is to open up a marijuana store. Cities always want more revenue. Will kids be tempted when someone brings some true home? I think we will regret legalizing it.

Marijuana has many bad aspect effects, when were only available in adolescence especially. We have no idea a lot about the effects of marijuana’s active component THC on people. We’ve known for years that cigarette causes cancer tumor but a lot of money cigarette companies make it impossible to ban it. Marijuana companies are going to get in the same way wealthy – maybe richer – and buy a lot of support in specialists.

It will be impossible to dislodge it once it enters a city. Will marijuana merchants have money? It requires a really very long time for the human body to recover from the effects of weed and reaction times are significantly slowed. Do we want a lot of individuals driving in and out of Sunnyvale on cannabis highs?

How many kids will be hit by cars driven by someone eating marijuana brownies they just bought? Question 11 – As the populace is growing fast, there is a heated debate on “growth”. What’s your undertake the existing council’s actions and prospects on city development? Answer: The analogy I use is of a 2-gallon bucket. You put in one gallon no problem. Devote another gallon and no problem.

But now its full. Put in yet another drop and it overflows. Or inside our case, traffic shall gridlock, and folks leave the area because they can not stand the traffic. We are seeing some of that already. When it fills up, it overflows. What happens whenever a city fills up?

The Golden gate Bridge reached capacity in the past. If the condition forces more housing in Marin (to “solve” the “housing crisis”) those new residents will commute to SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA and we will need a second Golden Gate Bridge. It will not be cheap. 10B – and prices have risen since then. Sunnyvale gets the same problem only not as dramatic.

There are just a few streets you can use as through streets. The majority of Sunnyvale is cul-de-sacs and little roads that go nowhere. Trying to get to Mountain View from southern Sunnyvale you only have Homestead, Fremont, and El Camino. When they fill up (that they are doing) we’re done.
