I find it tedious when corporatists cog call arbitrage “gouging.” If true, so is any margin ever that keeps you paid. It’s price clearing, market making. Pricing incentives matters.

What is the context of your post.

I agree. There are a lot of right leaning voters who are pro-markets that complain about gouging when it comes to something like hand sanitizer or toilet paper. But when it comes to other things like healthcare or college tuition there is no complaint.

I wish stores would raise prices on certain items if they are selling quickly. That would eliminate someone from buying a years supply of toilet paper.

I like the efficiency of pricing, never said the convenient hiding of inflation (a regressive tax on the poor and middle class) for the betterment of asset holders was “good,” it is the reason the Trump/Bernie split has “energy” and the establishment is so exposed for leaving America less safe less prosperous as long as the donors to either party are happy.

Markets can price supply and demand what the crisis also shows how hard exponential math is for most. Be it “rule of 7” or explosive R0. Been interesting to see how public /private markets don’t do ZERO or “null set” or “unknown” with astounding ability to lock or freeze.

Hello there,
A friend of mine quit before 3 years of bond period but she did not sign any bond during her induction. But now they are not giving her experience letter and they have sent a notice. When asked for the bond agreement, the company is not sending her that(which is because they dont have any bond agreement with her signature on it). They are demanding 5L which is not at all worth it. So, how can she tackle this situation. Any advice appreciated.

Need advice - M1 at a super regional firm in what is considered LCOL but really isn’t (coastal FL). I received a ~13% raise upon promotion but my salary is still painfully low for M1 compared to market.

I have two potential offers - one for an industry senior finance manager that would be like a 30-40% increase and another for a fully remote M1 at a 60% increase.

Biggest problem in making this decision is there is a very clear and short path to partner at my office. What would you do?

Does this group also have a non-compete which prevents you from working a second job should you need more money?

My partner got a City of Toronto offer. Salary band is 104-121k. HR asked for his expectations and he said 115k. HR came back with a 106k offer stating nobody on the team makes that much so they cant offer it. Also said she is unsure if there is any wiggle room if any at all. I’ve looked at everyone on the team with the same titles salary on the sunshine list and the lowest I see is 121k. I assume there is an OT component of some sort but also can’t confirm. Thoughts? /negotiating advice?
