    It's pretty difficult to measure improvements in specific % terms.

    How could you ever put a % value on customer satisfaction or loyalty?
    Or waste reduction, or improved product usefulness?

    And...

    Asking myself the hard question, what would be a good %?

    And what two things should I look at to % off against each other?

    Well, certainly not my choice of risk leverage.
    That's my own...

    I'm sorry about that.

    When I ran a small business years back, I always gave good repeat customers a better price.
    It was just smart.

    But then, I had the luxury of doing that, because there was...

    Ha, just powered up the calculator.

    A beautiful vison of electric arcs, humming transformers and glowing red numbers.

    Now, about this greed thing, I'm not convinced.

    That whole place is built on a sandbar.
    That's always been a bit suspect to me.

    Ha.
    So true.

    They are designed to bring out the crazy side of the human brain.
    The animal side, rather than the cool reasoning side.

    It's pretty obvious to me that they should be banned...

    Nope!

    This whole thing is wrong.

    A real investor would invest their own money.

    These so called investors are simply redirecting money that's not even their own.

    I'd call them "money...

    Yea... something wrong with the way they counted.

    About 1.4 mil in 2016.
    Then 1.57 mil in 2018.
    Now it must be about 1.6 mil.

    Although the birth rate always slows as countries become more...

    Ha.

    Don't you start.

    You'll really annoy the OP.

    I thought he meant a ban on pro ecology politicians.

    I think he means that most politicians are empty vessels worthy of disposal.

    I just think you and your tenant are mismatched.
    You need a more ordered tenant, and you tenant needs a more casual landlord.

    Next time make sure you get a more considerate tenant.

    But do we?

    really?

    Because when you import a worker fully grown, you also import other things.

    like customs and family connections, and ideologies.

    Which might not mesh well with your own.

    Nice!

    That works with quite a few ongoing service providers also.

    Pity you can't do it at your local supermarket or dairy.

    I wonder how many people go into the poling booth and think this:

    " I think I will vote for that nice lady,
    what a nice family.

    Oh come on Perry,

    Anyone can be wise in hindsight.

    And I'm not saying that you're not doing good work.

    Because reminding people how difficult it is to predict the future is good work.

    Tax treaty.

    I like that.

    It would be a pretty poor treaty if you had to pay twice.

    But yes, it's the sort of thing best checked with a tax accountant who does international work.
  18. Yes, The banks have made different products...

    Yes,

    The banks have made different products and priced them accordingly.


    So they made a cheap product, but it was less flexible.

    Then they made more flexible product that costs a bit more.

    The balance of power is with the muscle.
    The govt makes the rules, the police and army follow those rules.
    The balance of power is with the politicians.

    I just need three numbers to see where we stand.

    How many houses are consented in a month.

    How many people arrive in a month.

    How long it takes to build a house.

    Houses and property.

    They just are.

    But what are they really?

    And what would we like them to be?

    This sounds like a fairly clear case of formal dishonesty.
    Altering legal paperwork without authority to do so is clearly fraud.

    On a person level, two wrongs seem to make a right.
