Your Questions About Successful Trading Plans

Carol asks…

More hope & change from Obama’s export adviser exports jobs to Mexico & India are u racist if you disagree?

A firm overseen by one of President Barack Obama’s trade advisers has just announced plans to export 149 white-collar jobs — including numerous high-tech jobs — to an India-based info-tech firm.

The outsourcing announcement came during an election campaign in which Obama’s allies frequently lash former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for supposedly exporting jobs, and only two weeks after Obama showed he had little understanding of outsourcing in the high-tech sector.

“I don’t know your husband’s specialty, but I can tell you there’s a huge demand around the country for engineers,” he told the wife of a laid-off engineer in Fort Worth, Texas. Obama then volunteered himself to find a job for the engineer, who was laid off three years ago.

Some of the 149 Supervalu workers whose jobs are being outsourced will be hired by the Indian firm to assist IT workers in Guadalajara, Mexico, and in Bangalore, India, according to a Supervalu memo described Feb. 7 by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Matthew Rubel is a board member of Supevalu Inc., the Minnesota-based firm that is laying off the workers and exporting the jobs, under a contract with Tata Consulting announced Sept. 14, 2010.

Rubel is also a member of Obama’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations. He’s a very successful retail executive, and was appointed to the 33-member committee in Sept. 15, 2010, along with several other industry executives.

“These highly qualified men and women have agreed to lend their talents to this administration as we work to boost our nation’s exports over the next five years,” said a statement attributed to Obama. The committee advises the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Ron Kirk, a former mayor of Dallas, Texas.

Laura asks…

What do you think would have happened if…?

The Phillies had signed J.D. Drew, never traded away Schilling and Rolen, and traded for Andy Pettitte. How successful would they have been? Would that effect their future plans, and how many championships could they have won. I would like serious answers on this, because I believe it is a very interesting topic.
The reason why I posted this question was because of the series on CSN Philly, Philly Villains. It was a pretty interesting countdown, and when J.D. Drew was featured, I thought back of all the players the Phillies potentially could have had, and what would have happened if they didn’t trade away their franchise players.

John answers:

They probably would have had a few more winning seasons than they did. They would of maybe and I say maybe would of won 2 or 3 more world series. There is no way to know how successful they could of been if they had those players.

Lisa asks…

Can your life change when you become successful?

I don’t want to go too into detail but recently I was offered a great position working under an excellent chef in the Miami area, one of the most glamourous cities in America. He knows a lot of influential people, and im getting paid nicely because of it. My new apartment is bigger than the house I once grew up in. This also comes with working 12-14 hour days and a lot of commitment.

My current girlfriend is already fearing that im going to leave her. And my old high school friends have stopped including me in their plans. So my question is when a person becomes successful do I have to trade in my old friends for new ones that are at the new level that I just rose to? Or is their anyway that I could stay the same person that I was? I always hear songs of this happening to rappers that are doing well, is it a real possibility?

John answers:

‘m still going through this. My friends call me “The Chosen One” and at first I thought it was a cute nickname but not at all now. I never get phone calls from friends or anyone I knew in the past. I work in the entertainment business. I am a beauty queen, model, dancer, and movie/tv extra. I’m engaged to a man who is loaded. When ppl see my lifestyle they judge me and leave me before I can respond. Cherish the ones who stick around you. I can see that you are at a high status now and sometimes you have to make friends with the ones who are on the same level as you are. I’m sure you’ve heard of the saying “It gets lonely at the top.” This is a true statement. If you love your gf, then tell her, show her. Most importantly, dont doubt yourself for making better of yourself. Someone will always be there to pat you on the back. 🙂

John answers:

24 questions in one post – a bit greedy, no? We aren’t here to do your homework for you. We’re here to help you understand.

As for question #1, the “insight” is just plain wrong. Surely you’ve bought something expecting it to be something you want and finding out it isn’t, doesn’t work, etc.? Either you have to assume perfect information, perfect self-knowledge, etc. On the part of both parties to the trade or the conclusion just doesn’t follow.

And that doesn’t deal with the cases of “no perceived choice” or the lesser of two evils – does a blackmail victim _benefit_ from paying off the blackmailer? I would say no, after all, there is no guarantee the blackmailer won’t publish anyway, that the blackmailer won’t come back for more, etc.
