Dummy for a million, or strange lots

“To sell something unnecessary, you need to buy something unnecessary,” the hero of the legendary Soviet cartoon used to say. Auctions on the Internet have become an excellent platform for trading strange goods, buyers for which it would be impossible to find without the World Wide Web. We give examples of the most unusual purchases “under the hammer” in the history of auctions.

One of the strangest lots recently left the popular eBay auction. A woman from Iowa purchased a piece of fried chicken, in the structure of which, with the imagination and sufficient practice in examining Rorschach’s spots, one can see the profile of American President Washington. On this perishable “artifact” there was a buyer who did not regret 8.1 thousand US dollars for a nugget. The fried chicken has been kept by the lady since 2009.

But the real record, 28 thousand dollars, was achieved during the bidding for a rotten bitten cheese sandwich, on which you can allegedly see the image of the Virgin Mary. The sandwich was 10 years old at the time of the sale, but it was destined to be almost eternal: GoldenPalace.com, the company that bought the rot, said that the price of moldy organics would rise. After some time, another seller tried to test the demand for food architecture, but the chip in the shape of a seahorse did not cause much excitement. Continue reading

Where in the world is it easier and cheaper to do business?

The world is changing rapidly. The political and economic situation of states is changing. Countries previously profitable for investment are now experiencing stagnation. And money loves silence and understandable game conditions. Therefore, recently, global investors have shown increased interest in emerging markets. Are these countries ready for an influx of investors?

Previously, investments in BRIC countries seemed very risky, but in times of crisis, global investors consider them increasingly profitable. KPMG recently published a study that compares the costs of doing business in developed and developing countries. A study on business opportunities was conducted in 14 countries and more than 110 cities. The KPMG study provides an analysis of business conditions in different countries in the following sectors of the economy: industry, R&D, digital technology, etc.

The study examined a number of factors that influence the assessment of the attractiveness of different places for doing business. The main focus was on the costs of doing business, but factors such as the demographic situation and the population, skilled labor and education, innovation, infrastructure, the legal framework, economic conditions, cost and quality of life were also evaluated.

DIA strips customers of troubled banks

The Deposit Insurance Agency has launched a large-scale campaign to seize money from the population. Subpoenas have already been received by clients who withdrew money from their accounts shortly before the revocation of the license from the bank.

They accuse everyone of the same thing – prove that you have not used the preemptive right to receive money. Simply put, you, when withdrawing your money, did not know that the bank had problems. In principle, such actions by the DIA are contrary to its main function – guaranteeing the return of deposits to the population.

Note that the first trials of individuals and legal entities have already passed, moreover, with disappointing results for investors. Customers are losing out on a massive scale; case review is like a conveyor belt. Continue reading
