Giant Pool of Money Analysis

The awful subprime lending crisis is truly one of the most convoluted, wreaking messes conjured by the financial industries in the 20th century. There are so many layers of bad choices and megalomaniacal errors intertwined into this ugly event that picking out just two biases/heuristics to analyze and discuss will surely fail from being a complete analysis. Nonetheless, this is a the task at hand and, though we will not but scratch the surface of this behemoth, teasing out a couple biases will make for a viable illustration and application of the concepts and issues we have discussed thus far in class.

The bias that caused the most havoc in this lending crisis scenario was articulated beautifully by Bazarman and Moore as The Confirmation Trap. The Confirmation Trap boils down to whether or not a person merely searches for data that supports the decision they wish to make rather than looking for proper, empirical data to prove the assumption correct. In other words, does a person looking to make a decision actually look to prove their assumption incorrect. Sadly, at nearly every stage and at every level of the subprime lending fiasco there is evidence that all the players fell victim to The Confirmation Trap.

Wason writes, “ . . . that obtaining the correct solution necessitates a willingness to attempt to falsify hypotheses, and thus to test those intuitive ideas which so often carry the feeling of certitude.” None of the characters in our story sought to find the faults in their assumptions rather they simply found the proof of what they desired to achieve.

Running head: CONCORD BOOKSHOP PAPER Submitted by: jmb529 Concord Bookshop Paper Jonell Benson HCS/587 Ginger Weatherston University of Phoenix Concord Bookshop Paper This paper will discuss the organizational change process from the readings of, “Tales of Woe at Concord Bookshop.” The variety of change processes gives change leaders and administrators the ability to visualize the internal and external components of change that will go against the status quo and possibly cause a clash between the owners and the workers. The phases in the organizational change model are strategic responsiveness, behavioral change, employee participation and resistance to change. Also included, are the three faces of change and trigger events and change. I will describe two portions of the change process that were not completed or implemented at the Concord Bookshop, which caused failure of the change process. While attempting to implement change, the change leader must first assess the need for change. There was an increase in the amount of competition......

Nikon Corporation Submitted for Marketing 401

...strategy and model did not take the consumer in mind and pushed Nikon’s own agenda almost exclusively. With the surge of the digital age, Nikon seized the opportunity to recreate not only its model, but it’s product line as well. They have successfully captured the majority of market share and built a trustworthy brand, which is rapidly becoming a household name. General Marketing Strategy Nikon’s growth strategy, which is noted in many aspects of their mission, is routed in innovation and forward thinking. They intend to grow their company and their product lines based on technological strides, strides that will dynamically advance the industry and the creativity of their users. An example of this strategy has already been implemented at the prosumer level with the addition of HD movies capability to two of their Digital SLR cameras – the D300S and D3S. It can also be found at the consumer level with the D90. This type of forward thinking – adding technology that was once reserved to fixed-focal length and point-and-shoot cameras, at this level is an indicator that Nikon is serious and committed in its belief that innovation can grow their corporation. Strategically, it would make sense for Nikon to align itself with other forward thinking technology firms and software companies such as Apple, Adobe and Google. All three “giants” offer products and services that are increasingly important to the consumer. Apple has a strong name in......

...manageable level. Until we resume full-scale operations, we will not need a project accountant as there will be very little paper work at the site, which can be easily handled at Makati. "We appreciate the work you have done for Mana and we will not hesitate to take you back when we resume work at Gatbo. However it would be unfair to you if we kept you in the payroll and deprive you of the opportunity to earn more, during this period of Mana's crisis." 2 Private respondent expressed "shock" over the termination of his employment. He complained that he would not have resigned from the Sycip, Gorres & Velayo accounting firm, where he was already a senior staff auditor, had it not been for the assurance of a "continuous job" by MMDC's Eng. Rodillano E. Velasquez. Private respondent requested that he be reimbursed the "advances" he had made for the company and be paid his "accrued salaries/claims." The claim was not heeded; on 20 October 1986, private respondent filed with the NLRC Regional Arbitration, Branch No. V, in Legazpi City, a complaint for illegal dismissal, unpaid salaries, 13th month pay, overtime pay, separation pay and incentive leave pay against MMDC and its two top officials, namely, herein petitioner Benjamin A.

In his complaint-affidavit (position paper), submitted on 27 October 1986, Millena alleged, among other things, that his dismissal was merely an offshoot of his letter......

Already but Not Yet

...“Already but not yet” Should be understood as the final battle between good and evil has already been won, but not yet. Christ is the victor but has yet to come and claim His full reward. The term “already but not yet” should resound through Christian teachings today. With The homosexuals winning their battle for same sex marriage, and many other victories for the other side. By knowing that no matter the battles lost today, Christians have already won the war, as the Church recognizes, however, that she exists in an interim state, she eagerly awaiting the return of Jesus Christ, and the consummation of all of God’s purpose. The “already” shows that Jesus is the fulfillment of all prophesies of the Old Testament. He is the true interpreter of Mosaic Law (Matthew 5:17-48, Hebrews 3:1-6), the new Joshua whom gives final rest to believers (Hebrews 3:7-4:13). He is the fulfillment of God’s true wisdom transcending the wisdom of the Old Testament (Colossians 2:1-3). He is the final prophet predicted by Moses (Deuteronomy 18:15; Acts 3:22-23; 7:37). The promises of the fulfillment of the kingdom are evident in His miracles, healings, and authority over demons (Matthew 12:28). Jesus is the one who will sit on David’s throne forever, thus fulfilling the already. The “not yet” indicates that the church of God is, however, in an interim state, as it awaits the return of Jesus Christ, and attempts to live out God’s purposes. The church is in a sense the new community of God,......
