august 2011 by shehab / Lex - Cloud computing
Research from Mckinsey suggests that moving into the cloud costs much more than staying put. Using Amazon’s web services as a guide, the estimated price per computer per month would be $366 compared with $150 for a typical corporate data centre. The study also puts labour savings at just 10-15 per cent, as Luddite employees still need the help of IT support staff. Instead, the consultants suggest virtualisation – using software to make existing racks of servers run more efficiently – is the best route to saving money.<br />
<br />
That may miss the point. Companies are unlikely to outsource entire systems in one go. Instead the cloud allows rapid expansion or cheap testing of new projects. It provides a way to expand without capital investment, and the cost calculation will be different for each organisation. But it does suggest that investors should avoid foggy thinking about the companies vying to provide cloud services.

april 2011 by shehab / Columnists / David Pilling - How being big helps and hinders China
If every Chinese person lived like an American, not only would there be a terrible shortage of Hawaiian shirts and loud trousers, but, according to the Earthwatch Institute, it would also mean raising global oil production by 20m barrels a day to 105m and increasing the output of grain and meat by between two-thirds and four-fifths.

october 2010 by shehab / Media - New York Times set to increase price
The New York Times raised the cover price of its Monday to Saturday editions by 25 cents to $1.50 last year, and its strategy reflects similar moves by other newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, owned by News Corp, and the Financial Times, owned by Pearson. The Wall Street Journal raised the cover price by 50 cents in each of the last two years and now costs $2 per copy. The Financial Times implemented 50 cent increases in US cover prices in 2005, 2007 and 2008, and now costs $2.50.

Metering: The First 2010 Test of Paid News Content | Newsonomics
The FT model is based on “propensity modeling.” That’s a deeply analytics-based system of carefully monitoring the kinds of news usage its readers demonstrate.  The FT’s view is that it must understand who among their readership  — amid all the miscellaneous referrals sent to it by search engines – really values FT content and the brand behind it, and then charge those readers a subscription fee.
The FT now has 1.8 million registered visitors to its site, up 80% over last January, and 121,200 paying subscribers in the most recent count, up 22% from a year earlier.

FT / Goldman partners’ reduced rewards
Charles Ellis, author of The Partnership, The Making of Goldman Sachs, likens the culling process to a Darwinian exercise. “It’s entirely rational, ruthless and unemotional,” he says. “There’s no softness and no sentiment to it. The firm just gets the best people and empowers them. Some people react badly to that, but it’s survival of the fittest.”

FT | Jeffrey Sachs' recipe for avoiding global recession
the Middle East, flush with cash, should fund investment projects in emerging markets and low-income countries. Moreover, it should keep up domestic spending despite a fall in oil prices. Indeed, the faster a global macroeconomic expansion is in place the sooner oil prices will recover.

october 2008 by shehab / Columnists / John Gapper - The fatal banker’s fall
John Gapper: When I left university, few graduates thought of going into “merchant banking”, as it was then known in the UK, and almost no one into stockbroking. In recent years, however, investment banking has become the first place for graduates to seek their fortunes...
Many of those jobs – and much of the bonus pool that supported them – are at risk. I do not think investment banking will regain its hegemony for a very long time, if ever.

Philip Delves Broughton, an FT contributor, studied for an MBA at Harvard and wrote a book about his experiences. What They Teach You at Harvard Business School - called Ahead of the Curve in the US - has been getting deservedly good reviews. Its prose is crisp and evocative, its author playful yet sincere.
