Our chart matches the value of entire countries' listed firms to individual western companies. All the shares available in India are worth roughly the same as Nestlé; Egypt's are equal to Burger King. This suggests that emerging economies need deeper, more liquid markets, and investors need more perspective http://econ.st/KGkuL1

Daily chart: The euro area remains mired in recession. Forecasts from the European Commission in early May showed annual euro-zone GDP shrinking by 0.4% in 2013, following a contraction of 0.6% in 2012. The economic reverse will be much deeper on the periphery of the single-currency club than in its core. Today’s interactive graphic gives an overview of European GDP, debt and jobs.

News from the fledgling private space business is coming thick and fast. On April 29th, Virgin Galactic, the private space firm with the slickest PR (its name notwithstanding, the firm does not even plan to fly into orbit), conducted a successful, in-flight test-firing of the rocket motor aboard its SpaceShipTwo craft http://econ.st/ZTR9C3

Makes you wonder what these kinds of institutions are doing to maximize their profits in situations that are not as visible as this.

Engineers took 7 of the top 10 spots in a survey on the highest-paying college majors. http://on.wsj.com/10qklee

How do you think one's college major impacts pay?

Story
Tagline
Lots of work, and lots of fun : )
Introduction
Located in Vancouver, BC, I am currently studying toward a MBA degree at Beedie School of Business (SFU). I an open to all kinds of interactions - be it professional networking opportunities or just a chat for fun. 

Partly determined by my working history, I hold a strong interest in the natural resources industry (mining, oil & gas), and is actively seeking opportunities in related fields. 

Hobby wise I am a big fan of anime, and is invested (not in the money way) in a blog dedicated to reviews and general discussions. I do draw manga characters in my spare time as well, for no other reason but the immense satisfaction of creative fun!
