When what you do is make money from money, it seems as if breaking or avoiding laws and rules create victimless crimes. It's all a big game, where each person is trying to out-hustle the other. It's him or me so what does it matter if we both cheat a bit?
Picking the country where stocks are likely to outperform is akin to gambling. Did Cramer pick Turkey in late 2011 as the top performing country in 2012? Why do you believe his predictive powers are more accurate this year?
Since women outperformed men, how did they do against market and risk-adjusted benchmarks? The same study demonstrated they underperformed.
While CNBC's fear of engaging in balanced financial reporting is understandable, because of its reliance on the securities industry for advertising revenues, its lack of ethics is indefensible.
Obviously, Jim Cramer is not always wrong. He has picked many winners, but overall his record is no better than one you would expect from random chance.
Before the liberals write the GOP's obituary it would be wise to acknowledge the role other "bubbles" play in inventing new and ingenious ways to get people to vote against their own self-interests. Rather than one all-encompassing "bubble" that hermetically seals the Republicans inside their media universe, there's no shortage of other equally important bubbles that serve corporate power. These bubbles often overlap in influence and personnel and still possess the awe-inspiring ability to persuade public opinion on the problems of greatest magnitude facing the United States today. Although it was amusing on election night to see Karl Rove on Fox News refuse to accept the reality of President Obama's Ohio victory, we shouldn't be too quick to draw totalizing conclusions from the Democratic victories.
I applaud Cramer for taking on the 401(k) industry. Now he should do investors a huge favor by either dispensing academically-based advice about the perils of market timing, stock picking and fund manager selection or go off the air.
You know what makes Jim Cramer mad? Common mistakes that diminish the power of your money. The Mad Money host has advice for even the most risk-averse investor.
those attending presumably assumed they were there to learn from real "alpha" experts, which is a fancy term describing the value added by a fund manager over its designated benchmark. They must have been disappointed.
In order to understand Romney's reliance on his Bain Capital experience, one must also gain an understanding about how private equity works, the prevailing general ignorance about which has, thus far, benefitted the Romney campaign.
In last Wednesday's CNBC-sponsored "Your Money, Your Vote" Republican Presidential Debate, an intriguing question was posed that goes to the heart of the issue "to what extent should America be willing to rely on the private sector for our economic recovery?"
In the elevator moving 9 floors up the Museum of Art and Design to Robert Restaurant, C and Jeffrey Toobin hotly debated the news of the day: the tria...
The Cramer interview is breathtaking in exposing the administration's total lack of understanding of the distorted formation of the price of oil and gasoline in today's markets and seemingly impervious to its cost to the economy and its destructive impact on jobs.
It's been a week of thuggery on London streets, Syria's cities and on stock markets.
Maybe if Cramer had gone to class and paid attention to his teachers, he would have learned not to breach his obligation to clients, as he now has done.
Robert Gibbs announced yesterday that he is stepping down from his post as White House Press Secretary. What are some of most hilarious things he's said over the last two years?
