I don't know if what you said is true but I think it is irrelevant. I wouldn't prioritize construction over aesthetics. I agree with dragon8 and, as I walked past Chan's store last week looking for sushi, steered a friend of mine towards Armani MTM over Chan for that reason.

The designation sets a minimum skill standard and your experiences differentiate you: don't expect to be hired at any tax firm if you've only got audit experience at PWC. Outside of industry, your ability to articulate experiences does more to improve your...

You completely misunderstood ginlimetonic's post. chabe said he'd prefer $150 over $1,400 (1 barrel VS 1 ounce) which makes no sense unless you think oil will increase to 10x the price with gold staying flat or declining.
Quote: Originally Posted by medtech_expat The Financial Times and The Economist have ranked programs worldwide on a consolidated basis for years; BusinessWeek and Forbes started ranking "international" programs several years back.

Target schools are more important than their rankings. Firms typically have sets of schools they recruit from and schools with a large number of firms who recruit there are considered target schools. Lots of international target schools aren't ranked or are ranked significantly lower than they should be, as the rankings aren't consultant or banking specific. You'll have to do your own research to determine which schools are target but the b-school rankings are...

I'd probably say the highest proportion of independently wealthy dudes I know at the moment are the ones who went to trade school out of high school. There are a few reasons for this. 1. while we were accumulating student debt, they were earning wages as apprentices and having their trade schooling paid...
Quote: Originally Posted by Annadale I have seen inside a few Chinese factories, ranging in size from 30 employees to 3000. I can honestly say that I did not see children working, nor would I have expected to, these were mainly high tech plants with machinery that a child would definitely not had the capacity to operate. China makes good product at a good price, though how competitive it will be in the future is debatable, given current trends. I...
Quote: Originally Posted by indesertum well two people talked about being in the industry, but whatever. knowledge and intelligence is still severely lacking in this thread I read one person say his father ran a garment factory which means nothing unless you work there yourself and understand what is going on.

Quote: Originally Posted by indesertum this thread sucks. literally maybe two of you made any sort of valuable contribution with insider knowledge. the rest of you just talked about the quality of the made in china sweaters you owned or spouted some fancy numbers pulled out of your ass Doesn't sound like anyone in this thread has visited a Chinese factory. Info seems to be coming from media reports/hearsay. Hell, doesn't even sound like...
