Die Menschen leben in einer modernen Ökonomie, aber sie denken und handeln oft noch nach überholten Regeln. Ein Gegensatz, der Ärger schafft.

#TOA15: "Enabling Rapid Growth, a CFO’s Perspective" with Lee Kirkpatrick (Twilio) - YouTube
what got u to here, will kill u as u grow larger & larger (the usual (anecdotally) start-up chaos/shit-show will suck the life out of growth/co potential later on, need 2 build foundation/base/pillars/structure in form of CFO/COO/board/HR & some kind of processes 2 follow. so ppl dont have/will reinvent the wheel again. when? u probably will know it when u see it, but still can ask seasoned people who have been through it &/or ask 4 connections though ur VC. // keep being frugal, where possible. Amazon is still being know 2 be frugal. Door desks are still alive in Seattle Offices. No perks like Google/FB. Amazon made always losses, still makes losses via e-commerce unit. Had 2 be frugal otherwise it would actually been dead long ago. // Keep things in place that help/enable 2 grow! customer obsession (inventing in the name of the customer), response, service, keep adding value/value creation. // PLAY 2 WIN! FIGURE IT OUT as u go along around ur values!

Alphabet Is More Than Just a New Name | Re/code
Shareholders Don’t Like Moonshots. [...] Organizing as a Conglomerate Makes a Lot of Sense While Google’s CEOs say the new entity will never be a “consumer-driven business,” it’s quite likely that subsidiaries like Android or YouTube could turn out that way. By changing not only it name, but also by reorganizing in a substantial way, Google will change the way the market perceives it. Because they have their hands in many different pots, conglomerates are traditionally seen as more stable investments than technology or advertising companies. Being a conglomerate also makes it much easier for Google to continue growing its business through acquisitions and spinoffs.

Inequality and the Challenge of Employment - New Economic Thinking - YouTube
intrinsic motivation, fairness, social animal - social comparison (is encoded into the brain) - status anxiety // self-interest mostly wins over ethics/moral values? // trust between principle & agent // org structure and inventive - ie bonus variable attracts more selfish people and risk takers // justice and fairness is critically important - not only in orgs but also democracies //&! Natural rate theory (equilibrium) - service sector jobs (unskilled manual labour jobs) w minimum wage and not higher. and flexible wages with no minimum wage (USA) create working poor/inequality. institutional change - economists are not just analysts they also affect policy makers (think tanks). // austerity hurts equality/social mobility = economic long-run damage to potential (thus output gap and productivity loss) - lack of supply of able workforce to create added value products & services. trickle-down not helping. //&! tax code unfair, lower capital gains tax than on earned (labour) income

Yahoo’s layoff train continues, arriving in Santa Monica today | PandoDaily
Since the earliest days of Mayor’s tenure at the head of Yahoo, tech industry insiders and Wall Street alike have pushed for her to do a massive bloodletting of Yahoo’s arguably bloated organization. Netscape founder and Facebook board member Marc Andreessen* suggested that as many as 10,000 people needed to be let go. After more than two years in the role, this reorganization by 1,000 paper cuts isn’t quite the decisive action that many initially hoped for. But anything that represents focus and an emphasis on lean operations should be met with applause at this point. But now that Yahoo no longer has the benefit of its Alibaba holdings to bouy its stock price, Mayer is under pressure to cut costs and deliver meaningful growth. Counterintuitive as it may seem, a leaner organization, and the focus it brings, might actually help on both fronts.
