I wonder how the Huns and Mongols and Goths and Visigoths and Ostrogoths and Vandals would feel about being likened to private equity, they being the first true barbarians?

So, the GOP is backing off threats to turn the lights off. Seemingly sensible, but just more of the kick-the-can mentality, truth be told.

Your technology portfolio probably needs a restart after last quarter. Here, a tech-savvy money manger, one-time billionaire John Calamos, discusses his outlook and gives us three stocks to buy.

Investors line up to check out of J.C. Penney this morning. Another big loss for the retail chain amid its turnaround effort.

Your poor mother! The stock is at three-year lows already. And when it recovered some earlier this year, I heard more talk about shorting it than going long.

So, if there was a draft, women would be conscripted now, too?

Not lovin' it. McDonald's growth has gone stale. New CEO Thompson needs to find some fresh ingredients to boost the company.

To learn more about the fiscal cliff, and D.C. brinkmanship, look at this video, and turn to the four-minute mark. Indiana Jones 3 tank battle scene (SPED UP)

Hostess is liquidating. That immediately put Grupo Bimbo back on the Forbes radar. Bimbo is a Mexican bakery company--the world's biggest bread maker actually--that already flirted with buying Hostess. Did I mention that it's run by an billionaire family?

Story
Tagline
I'm deputy chief of reporters at Forbes magazine.
Introduction
I'm an associate editor at Forbes, part of the team responsible for our signature issues: The Forbes 400 and World Billionaires. As a writer, I cover these wealthy business builders as well as other entrepreneurs. I've written about the toy titan behind the mini-skirted Bratz dolls, the seminar huckster fleecing mom-and-pop investors at $40,000 a class and the Texan making the world's finest single malt...from beneath a bridge in Waco. Before Forbes, I also wrote about entrepreneurs for Inc. magazine, and attended Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
