  • "We're obviously in the throes of what feels like a correction for the small-cap and growth-equity companies," said David Golden.  (ya think?! LOL)  Not good news for start ups such as BOX who has filed for IPO and will begin their road show shortly seeking (they hope) high end of the range valuation.  Good news for the investor however as we'll be able to scoop up names at lower (not peak) levels.  Full story at  WSJ

Only activities motivated by a concern for others’ well-being, he declared, could be truly “constructive.”"Washington needs to be more like the Dalai Lama. Without abandoning principles, we need practical policies based on moral empathy." so say the Dalai Lama on Capitalism.  Morals in politics.  Long since dead in the U.S. NYTimes
