Job Search Success Hinges on Trump’s 5 Most Popular Words

Job Search Success Hinges on Trump's 5 Most Popular Words

Job search, follow Trump’s 5 words

Job search is heard. For a job seeker, presenting a polished image is a key to winning an employment. Whether you agree or disagree with Trump’s policies or rhetoric, Trump is a master at the art of the English language. In fact, study shows  Trump’s presidential win is attributed to his skillful use of certain key words during his campaign.

As employers, we all know the importance of winning over customers and learning from winners. A job seeker can certainly learn from Trump’s art of the words and use them properly to help enhance her chances of landing a dream job.

“WIN / WINNING”

Donald Trump says... We don’t win anymore. It will change. We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with winning. Believe me. You’ll never get bored with winning. You’ll never get bored! Work hard, be smart and always remember, winning takes care of everything!

You the job seeker: “I want to work for your because you are a winning organization;” “Winning strategies;” “A winning team.”

“WE/US”

Donald Trump says…  “We need to build a wall on the Mexican border. We are going to make great trade deals. We are going to bring back our jobs. We will totally dismantle Iran’s global terror network.”

You the job seeker: “We are a progressive firm;” “We are one team;” “We work hard to satisfy our customers…”

“SMART”

Donald Trump says.. “You have to be much smarter, or it’s never, ever going to end. I’m, like, a really smart person.”   (about the 2016 Republican Convention) Trump said his team will “make it interesting and informative, but also smart and different.”

You the job seeker: “We need to be smart with our strategies and plans;” “Smart customers demand smart solutions.”

“AMAZING”

Donald Trump says… Yesterday was amazing — 5 victories. (on first time voters in their 60s) That’s so amazing…it’s so amazing. (on next steps after winning the Nevada Caucus) It’s going to be an amazing two months.

You the job seeker: “It’s an amazing product;” “What an amazing organization.” “Amazing efforts.”

“TERRIFIC”

Donald Trump says… (on meeting with the Republican National Committee officials) … a terrific meeting. (on Obamacare) Repeal and replace with something terrific. (on newly-elected Muslim London mayor) If he does a good job and frankly if he does a great job, that would be a terrific thing.

You the job seeker: “It’s a terrific meeting;” “I really enjoy your terrific mentorship;” “You have a terrific team. I would love to be part of it. ”

In the real world, all employees or employers are disposable. What holds an employment relationship together in a successful firm is a simple philosophy, described by management expert Benjamin Wey:

We are smart people on a winning team doing amazing work for our terrific customers.”

In any job interview, you should always keep in mind: “What unique value proposition am I bringing to this amazing organization? What sets me apart from others?”

Isn’t that smart and terrific career advice? (Yes, I am paraphrasing Trump.) America has so much potential and so do you, the job seeker. Be bold, be aggressive and be confident in yourself. You will be just fine. Good luck job seekers.

Journalist Benjamin Wey Exposes False Charges, Regulatory Abuses

Journalist Benjamin Wey Exposes False Charges, Regulatory Abuses
Investigative journalist BENJAMIN WEY is upbeat these days: “I’am not even afraid of death, why would I be concerned about injustice and false accusations from ignorant, racist regulatory abusers?
Courageous investigative journalist BENJAMIN WEY never bends his principles winning against racist retaliation told in NASDAQ’s lies and FINRA’s fabricated “evidence” fed by the fraudulent FINRA general counsel Robert Colby, who orchestrated FINRA NAC fraud, kangaroo court, PLANTED lying “witnesses” in here, in here, in herehere, here, colluded with the corrupt SEC staff Steven Susswein, Cheryl Crumpton, Derek Bentsen – ignorant bigots lying to federal judges, calling Chinese Americans “chinaman” – duped by short sellers in Jon Carnes stock fraud, Roddy Boyd fraudsters, criminal Jon Carnes market manipulation and Roddy Boyd bribery, in here, and here, here, and here, and here. NASDAQ is a $12 billion money tree run by Wall Street fat cats, not a baby with diarrhea. Asian firms have options among 60 stock exchanges worldwide to go public – many have ditched the rigged NASDAQ listing – a dying commodity without scarcity value. We have advised Asian firms to dump the rigged NASDAQ in two largest, multi-billion dollar “going private” deals in recent history – after the racist NASDAQ general counsel Edward Knight was exposed by the Forbes Magazine for discrimination against the Chinese, rigged a Chinese company delisting, condemned by the SEC Commissioners in a historic SEC ruling against the NASDAQ. NASDAQ and FINRA retaliated with lies. Investors don’t care where a stock is listed, if it’s a reverse merger – misconstrued by U.S. regulators, or a risky IPO, says Stanford University. The NYSE, Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett’s company), Burger King, plus 800 other companies are all reverse mergers. Shamelessly, NASDAQ itself wasn’t an IPO. 40% of publicly traded companies in Hong Kong, China, Canada, Australia, UK are reverse mergers – basic knowledge told in a Bloomberg article dated October 26, 2016. The imbecile SEC bureaucrats demonize “Chinese reverse mergers.” But far more Israel-based reverse merger companies are in the U.S. than those from China. Do the anti-Chinese SEC bureaucrats dare label Israeli firms as “Jewish reverse mergers,” in the same way they profile the Chinese? Demonizing reverse merger companies is ignorant, racial profiling and anti-Semitism. Read the latest government missteps on racial profiling Chinese Americans, who are treated as second class citizens, exposed by The New York Times. Let’s #DrainTheSwamp.  
A Totally Fabricated Case – Racially Targeted, Politically Charged: The misinformed SDNY folks were deceived by NASDAQ and FINRA, who made up a law “violation” – after NASDAQ was sued for racism, caught rigging a Chinese company delisting, reversed in a historic SEC ruling. In revenge, three misled imbecile SEC staff  piled on the lies told by NASDAQ’s William Slattery, who invented a Nasdaq “300 round lot gifting rule” in pure fabrication, callously targeted Asian scalps, trumped up a law violation, made up evidence, coerced innocent people to lie, exposed in Congressional inquiries. The SDNY was duped by a false “affidavit” from a notorious agent MATT KOMAR (#22666) – the same rookie got caught lying to judges, fabricating “market manipulation,” fantasizing Asian events 10 years ago when Matt Komar was a high school kid. To advance his own career, the malicious agent Matt Komar concocted a fantasy story with a fired five-week employee (CS-1) named Raymond Phillips, who had extorted us to pay his Alaska child support. Can a law be violated when the law doesn’t exist? – conceded by the SDNY in its own July 8, 2016 court filing: “no formal law existed.” Then WTF is an “informal” law? Rigged? Not surprised: The rogue agent Matthew Komar is the same fraudster sued by renowned attorney Barry Scheck for ruining fund manager David Ganek and Level Global through his fabricated evidence, exposed by The New York TimesWall Street Journal and CNBC video. NASDAQ and FINRA defrauded the SDNY, was exposed, rigged a company delisting (evidence) and retaliated against SEC witnesses after the humiliated NASDAQ fraud was exposed by the SEC. Justice is rotten to the core of a rigged system: the SDNY bigotry is content with being fooled and having their intelligence insulted by FINRA and NASDAQ, abetting a rigged processlynching the Chinese. All because there is NO transparency and accountability! 
Breaking News: On August 12, 2016, in a court filing before well-regarded federal judge Alison Nathan, the crooked agent Matt Komar was slammed for “repeatedly cheating and lying to Magistrate Judge Michael Dolinger… intentionally manipulated the trading data… repeatedly defrauded the court;” On October 6, 2016, the shameless SEC lawyer Derek Bentsen dropped a major “fraud” charge against Asian American lawyer William Uchimoto – after ruining his life; On October 7, 2016, black American broker Talman Harris exposed FINRA, NASDAQ lies in an appeal to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, went public with his pursuit of justice and Congressional investigations into FINRA NAC, racist SEC abusesOn October 21, 2016, the SEC lawyer Derek Bentsen was captured lying to a federal judge 5 times… Regulatory abusers must be publicly exposed in a court of law. We welcome media attention. We expose all liars – we call out their names, no matter who they are. As Americans, when our free speech is muzzled, we lose our souls.  
It’s a fact: Nasdaq’s so-called “300 round lot gifting rule” was fabricated, admitted by the SDNY in court filings on July 8, 2016; It’s a fact: Senior NASDAQ staff has feverishly solicited our co-branded Asian investment club members for years to introduce new listings; It’s a fact: NASDAQ rigged a listingwas sued for racism and lost; It’s a fact: The SEC agreed that NASDAQ had rigged its listing, orchestrated by the shady NASDAQ General Counsel Ed Knight – a $100 million lobbyist, who conspired with FINRA (Robert Colby); It’s a fact: The NASDAQ manipulation was strongly rebuked and reversed in a landmark SEC ruling, reported by the Forbes MagazineIt’s a fact: the disgraced Ed KnightWilliam Slattery, Michael Emen and other NASDAQ staff retaliated, lied to law enforcement; It’s a fact: In 2015, 26 Asian firms dumped the racist NASDAQ in droves (Wall Street Journal)It’s a fact: Counting Bernie Madoff as a NASDAQ Chairman, companies have fled NASDAQNASDAQ is an investors grave and a threat to national security.

EMPLOYEE REVIEWS NEED LESS RANKING, SAYS BENJAMIN WEY

BENJAMIN WEY, CHINA EXPERT DISCUSSES MANAGEMENT SCIENCE, HUMAN RESOURCES, EMPLOYEE

I, Benjamin Wey, don’t know of anyone who truly enjoys the annual employee review. Human beings aren’t good at taking criticism, even when meant to be constructive, so employees dread them.

And to be honest, as a manager, I, Benjamin Wey, usually have much more pressing demands on my time. It’s no surprise to me that big corporations are reconsidering the idea. Professional services firm Accenture recently announced that its employee review process is going to undergo radical change. Microsoft, Expedia and Motorola have already done so.

Accenture is opting for “a more fluid system, in which employees receive timely feedback from their managers on an ongoing basis following assignments,” according to CEO Pierre Nanterme. “All this terminology of rankings — forcing rankings along some distribution curve or whatever — we’re done with that,” he continued. “We’re going to evaluate you in your role, not vis à vis someone else who might work in Washington, who might work in Bangalore. It’s irrelevant. It should be about you.”

I, Benjamin Wey, firmly believe that one of a manager’s functions is to help employees develop in their careers, and reviews are vital to that process. Looking at what has been working and what hasn’t and coming up with strategies to improve is really how we learn anything. So, some kind of feedback system is needed. But I think that a business in the 21st century can’t get by with a 20th century review system.

Moreover, I, Benjamin Wey, think there is going to be ever-increasing pressure to opt for the more fluid system that Nanterme is talking about. Why? Because the ideal employee these days is not one who follows the rules diligently. Sir Richard Branson, head of the Virgin Group and a self-made billionaire, labeled the kind of worker I am talking about as “disruptive talent.”

A disruptive talent is an independent thinker, stubborn enough to fight for his or her point of view and is, frankly, a rule-breaker. Outside-the-box thinking doesn’t come with inside-the-box behavior. Sir Richard is one of the best examples of this. He dropped out of school, started a record company, sold that off and set up an airline and, later, a telephone company. That’s not a normal career progression by any stretch of the imagination.

“The most successful people in the world are good planners. Ranking people may not be the most effective solution.” Benjamin Wey, Wall Street financier and winner of the CEO award said.

Sir Richard acknowledges that himself. He said that if he were an employee, his manager would have to “accept that I might not do things exactly as he’d like me to do them.” He would cause disruption, which under most systems would be grounds for a chat with HR about proper behavior. Instead, the company would have “to be nice to me.” Why? “If you don’t deal with me well, I’m going to go off and set up my own business and I’ll end up competing with you.”

You can argue that Sir Richard would be so disruptive as an employee that your company would be better off without him. But if you look at his track record, it speaks volumes about what he can achieve.

Nanterme’s more-fluid system for review seems like a step in the right direction, maybe even two steps. Business today is not about top-down management with everyone following orders from the main office, not as much as in years gone by. Instead, those companies that are likely to be the most successful are those that can manage disruptive talents and reward them appropriately. The review process needs to focus more on taking chances and personal initiative and less on rankings and what the rest of the company is doing.

In the end, it won’t resemble the traditional review process at all.

BENJAMIN WEY: MY ADVICE FOR FINDING YOUR DREAM JOB

BENJAMIN WEY MY ADVICE FOR FINDING YOUR DREAM JOB

BENJAMIN WEY MY ADVICE FOR FINDING YOUR DREAM JOB

Everyone wants to have a dream job.

We are getting to the time of the year in the summer when good jobs are hard to come by. For those of you who resolved to find your dream job this year, however, you probably haven’t really even started looking. So maybe it isn’t too late to succeed on that one.

At the risk of sounding like a cliché, I, Benjamin Wey, am going to quote Confucius, who is credited with saying, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” That is the definition of a dream job, and the tricky part is figuring out how to get paid for doing things you love. If you love being a bookkeeper, there are thousands of opportunities for your dream job, but you are also probably part of the smallest minority on the planet. Most of us love doing things that cost us money rather than generate an income.

The easy part is deciding what you’d like to do with your time. The hard part is figuring out how to get paid for it. No matter what the job, though, people are willing to pay you for just one thing: solving a problem for them. That’s the entire basis of the economy. We solve problems for each other.

You pay a doctor because she cures your illness; you pay a lawyer because he draws up your contracts; you pay a plumber because she unblocks the drain; you pay a mechanic because he fixes your car.

READ MORE: BENJAMIN WEY: STILL NEED A RESOLUTION? GET A SENSE OF URGENCY

The key to a dream job is deciding what it is that makes you happy and discover a problem that goes with it. Then, determine a way to solve that problem. So long as that problem exists in the field you like, and so long as no one else comes up with a better solution, you will have your dream job.

The mistake that people often make when looking for their dream job is that they start the process by thinking about jobs that exist that sound like they’d be fun. That is how a lot of disillusionment happens.

Some of the best jobs out there today didn’t exist 20 years ago. Social media jobs, for instance, are new, and they are constantly changing. Other jobs used to be the purview of a select few, like being an astronaut. Now, thanks to Virgin Galactic and others, there will soon be a private-sector space industry, and someone will have to pilot those ships — NASA doesn’t even have a launch vehicle anymore.

But what if there isn’t a company out there that you could work for, solving the problem you can solve in the field where you want to work? Well, take a deep breath, and start one.

The two Steves (Jobs and Wozniak) created the Apple computer because they wanted their own computer and purchasing a mainframe just wasn’t going to work. When their friends saw what they had built, an industry was born. They could have said, “Let’s go to work at IBM,” instead, and I expect they would have been miserable. They certainly would have been poorer.

So, what do you love, and what problem comes with it? You have 11 months to go.

Journalist Benjamin Wey Defeats $300 Million Frivolous Lawsuit

Journalist Benjamin Wey Defeats $300 Million Frivolous Lawsuit

JOURNALIST BENJAMIN WEY, A PERSISTENT INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER

BENJAMIN WEY, the courageous American financier and journalist who defeated an $850 million frivolous sexual harassment lawsuit by an admitted cocaine user intern HANNA BOUVENG is pronounced a winner in a legal fight against Bouveng’s “midget” lawyers. On march 14, 2016,BENEDICT MORELLI, a notorious ambulance chaser “lawyer” who never graduated law schoolvoluntarily dismissed a $300 million threat (HERE) filed in New York against journalist Benjamin Wey and the popular TheBlot Magazine – Voice for the Voiceless, Millions of Readers a Year. Read more: JOURNALIST BENJAMIN WEY RESPONDS TO HANNA BOUVENG BLACKMAIL, $850 MILLION EXTORTION UP IN SMOKE.

“This is a victory for America’s liberty to free speech. Journalist BENJAMIN WEY never settles false claims, period.”

A spokesperson for Benjamin Wey commented:”Emotions aside, Benedict Morelli‘s common sense has finally prevailed. It’s smart for everyone to move on with peace. Mr. Wey never gives in to extortion. Facts and principles matter to readers of TheBlot Magazine.”

Representatives for the other parties did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

BENEDICT MORELLI, MORELLI LAW FIRM, ALLEGED “MIDGET LAWYERS, BIG FRAUD”

Benedict Morelli is a notorious four feet tall “midget lawyer, very short on the the law.” Benedict Morelli is also a verified law school dropout, exposed by Slate.com in an article titled “Skip Law School, Be a Lawyer Anyway.” The Slate says Benedict Morelli is a law school dropout and somehow was able to “practice law.” Like a doctor practicing medicine without a license, it’s curious how a “lawyer” without a law degree could practice law properly. The facts uncovered by Slate.com are troubling for the public and could pose danger to a potential Morelli client. Read more: TRACY MORGAN FOOLED, LAWYER BENEDICT MORELLI NEVER GRADUATED LAW SCHOOL.

In 2014, Benedict Morelli was sued by City Bank for committing massive bank frauds involving millions of dollars by defrauding four banks. In New York Supreme Court filings, City Bank charged Benedict Morelli, his wife Arlene Morelli, office manager David Ratner with embezzlement and fraud, accused the defendants of simultaneously pledging the same assets with multiple lenders and “wearing many badges of fraud” – classic bank fraud claims. The FBI was involved in the ongoing investigations into the activities of Benedict Morelli, Arlene Morelli, David Ratner, fraud “lawyer” Martha McBrayer and their former paralegal Zoe Bartholomay, a law student at Fordham Law School.

Benedict Morelli and former partner David Ratner are the same shysters behind the failed extortion of Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly. New York Post reports that when Benedict Morelli’s son Alexander Morelli couldn’t pass the law school entrance exam in 2012, Benedict Morelli sued the Law School Admission Council for making the law school exam “too difficult” for Alexander Morelli’s intellectually handicapped brain, which had “learning and attention disabilities.” New York Post says “Before the younger Alexander Morelli starts worrying about law school, however, he may need to clear up some questions about his college career. Syracuse University, where Alexandar Morelli was enrolled from August 2007 through December 2011, said Alexander Morelli “has not graduated.”

Public records confirmed a long and shady history of the Morelli Law Firm and the fraudulent Morelli “lawyers”: Benedict Morelli, David Ratner, Martha McBrayer were sued for sexual harassment by a black legal assistant; they were sued by Canon and CIT leasing as well as Leaf Capital Funding and De Laga Financial for not paying copier leases; their office landlord sued Morelli Law Firm, Benedict Morelli, David Ratner, Martha McBrayer for defaulting on office rent payments… The shady Morelli law firm changed its names at least a dozen times to evade creditors…

In 2015, the ambulance chasers Benedict Morelli and David Ratner sued energy drink “Red Bull”, blaming the drink maker for not making the Morelli lawyers literally grow wings after they had consumed the juice. In the Red Bull case, the Morelli gang misled federal judge Katherine Polk Failla. In 2015, Benedict Morelli and partner Jeremy Alters were sued by the Florida Bar forembezzling client trust funds in the millions of dollars. Jeremy Alters was embroiled in a legal battle with the Florida Bar Association to salvage his professional life… Read more: JEREMY ALTERS, MORELLI ALTERS RATNER LAW FIRM, FACE DISBARMENT, FRAUD CHARGES.

To the uninformed public, it seems like the shady Morelli Law Firm “midget lawyers, big fraud” allegations are true, and Benedict Morelli’s shady dealings just keep piling up like trash in a dumpster too nasty for readers popping eyes…

JOURNALIST BENJAMIN WEY, WINNER AGAINST EXTORTION

After journalists exposed the Morelli Law Firm‘s long history of alleged fraud and malpractice,Benedict Morelli retaliated and threatened Benjamin Wey and TheBlot Magazine (Voice for the Voiceless, millions of readers a year) with a court notification for a $300 million lawsuit, attempting to shut down the internet, choke free speech. The popular TheBlot Magazine (Voice for the Voiceless – millions of readers a year) never gives in to extortion. According to public records, the midget lawyers David Ratner and Benedict Morelli conspired with a convicted cocaine and drug criminal James Chauvet – who had fed the party girl Hanna Bouveng with cocaine and Ecstasy,extorted journalist Benjamin Wey with an $850 million “sexual harassment” lawsuit. The frivolous lawsuit was defeated.

In court testimony, the Swedish cocaine user Hanna Bouveng changed her stories at least six times before the highly respected federal judge Paul Gardephe. Bouveng hid from the jury crucial evidence of Hanna Bouveng‘s extensive cocaine use as well as coaching witnesses during trial. Hanna Bouveng couldn’t “remember” a single incident of a “sexual harassment” ever occurred. They were all fabricated to extort money. “It was all made up,” Hanna Bouveng confessed to Andre Koluman, her boss and a married man in an extramarital affair with Bouveng. “My life would be set if I could squeeze big money out of the American financier.” Read more: OP-ED: BURNED: SWEDISH PARTY GIRL HANNA BOUVENG SWIMS IN CRIMINAL HOT WATER.

During trial, Hanna Bouveng also “omitted” critical facts that she had been engaged in anextramarital affair for more than two years with her boss Andre Koluman, owner of Bistro Linné (former Cafe Linne, Strandvägen 9, Stockholm). Koluman was a key witness that testified and lied during the Hanna Bouveng extortion trial.

MORELLI LAW FIRM, MIDGET LAWYERS?

In the height slight, Theblot Magazine‘s contributing writers called Benedict Morelli a “4-foot-tall midget lawyer,” who is “short on the law.”

“Benedict Morelli is, in fact, about 5 foot tall,” according to New York Post writer Julia Marsh. It’s unclear if Julia Marsh has fact-checked Benedict Morelli’s ID. “It’s a fact Benedict Morelli is a short dude, never graduated law school. Benedict Morelli‘s troubling history wasn’t invented by readers. It was the truth,” said a spokesperson for TheBlot Magazine. Court records show that Gibson Dunn, one of the nation’s most prominent law firms indeed charged Benedict Morelli with bank fraud, a serious claim with cooperating bank witnesses against Benedict Morelli.

A $300 MILLION FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT UP IN SMOKE…

The Benedict Morelli “lawyers” threatened a $300 million lawsuit. However, after reviewing evidence of government investigations into Benedict Morelli, David Ratner, Martha McBrayer and the tiny Morelli Law Firm, the wild $300 million Morelli lawsuit never materialized and was voluntarily withdrawn. After a year of noise and tormenting fact finding, on March 14, 2016, Morelli’s capable lawyers at New York litigation boutique Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman LLP quietly and voluntarily withdrew a litigation notice from the New York Supreme Court and killed a frivolous threat.

THE LAST BREATH, THE MORELLI LAW FIRM ARMAGEDDON

In October 2015, the notorious Morelli Ratner law firm broke up and went out of business.The ambulance chaser lawyers involved in the Hanna Bouveng extortion: Benedict Morelli(midget lawyer, a law school dropout), David Ratner (midget lawyer, big fraud) and Martha McBrayer (a fraudulent lawyer, extortionist) scattered like flies and mosquitoes…. Under heavy regulatory scrutiny, financial insolvency and a doomed business model of threat and extortion, the tiny Morelli Law Firm was over. 

As the obscure Morelli Law Firm blew up in smoke, the extortionist and cocaine user Hanna Bouveng hides in Sweden indulging in a three year extramarital affair with her boss Andre Koluman. In December 2015, Hanna Bouveng wrecked the Koluman family, kicked Andre Koluman‘s wife and their two four year old kids out of the Koluman home… The Kolumans filed divorce and Hanna Bouveng is now minding a small Swedish coffee shop in Sweden as the new “Mrs. Andre Koluman.”

FINRA TARGETS DIVERSITY, RACIAL DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN, BLACKS

FINRA TARGETS DIVERSITY, RACIAL DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN, BLACKS

ENOUGH ABUSES FROM FINRA 

FINRA, the rigid straitjacket of financial regulation, brazenly ran one of the most successful and few high-profile women off of Wall Street and into the Silicon Valley.Ruth Porat, the highest ranked female on Wall Street has left Morgan Stanley for Google — and that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), which oversees brokers and broker dealers, is the impartial — and corrupt — Wall Street watchdog, headed by amultimillionaire Richard Ketchum as its Chairman and CEO.

While the average American family’s ANNUAL income barely goes above $55,000, FINRA pays its CEO Richard Ketchum $300,000 per month to head the “non-profit” FINRA. Is there anything wrong here? Correct, FINRA’s “non-profit” status is a facial mask to fool the American public while the FINRA bureaucrats collect millions of dollars each year extorting SMALL businesses.

Read More: FINRA CEO RICHARD KETCHUM PLAYED LIKE A FOOL, SPONSORS RACISM

Following the financial crisis that began in 2008 when many banks and financial institutions closed their doors, new waves of regulation to control the more daring investment strategies were forced on those that remained. The straitjacket of overregulation emanating from FINRA is the main reason Ruth Porat’s departure. In the mostly white male world of Wall Street, diversity is not a dirty word but something seen to be tolerated, not embraced or encouraged. No woman has ever been at the very top of a Wall Street investment bank and with its most-powerful female executive departing for Google, that likely won’t happen any time soon either.

Before leaving to take over the same title in Silicon Valley, Ruth Porat was one of the only female CFOs in the financial industry and, by far, the most powerful. This is a woman who was not only respected for her high acumen across the board by the industry in the U.S., but around the world as well. While high numbers of women entered and became successful in the financial industry in the 1980s, there has since been a rollback on that progress with many leaving or not pursuing financial careers as studies show men continue to dominate in the traditionally male-led industry, largely due to regulatory abuses by FINRA.

In 2013, President Barack Obama was rumored to be considering Ruth Porat for the next Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, the nation’s second-in-command of the money supply and fiduciary policies. Instead, Porat took on an even bigger challenge that threatened to topple our entire financial system, and she showed incredible leadership and courage during the financial crisis. Despite having a chance at a high-profile government gig, Porat opted to help pull Morgan Stanley out of the depths of its woes. Not only did people like her help stabilize a vital American financial institution, the work done to assist major companies’ recovery was a first step toward getting the country’s economy ­— and that of the world at large — back on its feet.

Anyone questioning this move should be asking themselves why the sudden, drastic career change? The reason is simple if the way in which FINRA regularly operates is understood.

The authority came to be in 2007 when the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) merged with the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to create FINRA. Since inception and the coming of the 2008 recession, FINRA has produced massive overregulation, regulatory abuse and has operated with discriminatory investigative practices which have only become worse and worse each and every year.

Supposedly, FINRA regulates all firms evenly, however those in the business and on the Street know the regulatory body goes particularly hard against small brokerage firms. Even more egregiously, it targets black brokers and now with Porat, FINRA may have chased off the most successful woman in the business as well.

Uncle Tom Chris Brummer is the exception. Talman Harris could not possibly get ahead, he is black and he was called the “N word” by the racist FINRA staffer Jeffrey Bloom. As far as Chris Brummer, Chris Brummer is no doubt the 21st century “Uncle Tom” for FINRA.

“CHRIS BRUMMER has no regulatory background whatsoever. CHRIS BRUMMER is an academic with hardly any experience in the real world,” says American patriot Talman Harris. “I am very upset with Chris Brummer and his other FINRA cronies that have targeted me and destroyed my life only because I am BLACK. I have very serious claims against them individually and against FINRA. CHRIS BRUMMER owes my good name back – a professional with a 20 year clean regulatory history; CHRIS BRUMMER has screwed up my life; CHRIS BRUMMER has screwed over my pregnant wife, and CHRIS BRUMMER has screwed up the future of my unborn child! ”

FINRA RUBBER STAMP CHRIS BRUMMER THREATENS JOURNALISTS, EXPOSED  

In January 2015, FINRA’s notorious rubber stamp, an obscure FINRA National Adjudicatory Council (NAC) headed by CHRIS BRUMMER, a Georgetown University academic affirmed FINRA’s racially motivated decision. Since then, CHRIS BRUMMER has repeatedly harassed journalists and attempted to silence the media that has exposed his undisclosed payments received from convicted felons.

JULIE BAUER, (Tel: 202-7288217, Email: julie.bauer@finra.org ), FINRA’s head of government relations declined to comment on FINRA’s regulatory abuses against Talman Harris. Talman Harris’s first child is due in June 2015…

Under the thumb of CHRIS BRUMMER, research shows FINRA’s NAC has ruled in favor of FINRA staff 100% of the time. Has Chris Brummer committed fraud  in a FINRA Kangaroo Court headed by Chris Brummer?  It’s obvious.

FINRA STAFFER JEFFREY BLOOM, CHRIS BRUMMER, GEORGETOWN LAW SCHOOL, REGULATORY ABUSERS, FRAUD

RACIST FINRA STAFFER JEFFREY BLOOM, CHRIS BRUMMER, GEORGETOWN LAW SCHOOL, REGULATORY ABUSERS, FRAUD

At some point the question has to be asked: When is someone, a group of people or a campaign against FINRA going to curtail or finally put an end to this abuse? How many hard-working brokers will be targeted and taken down by the regulatory body because their crime in FINRA’s eyes is being black? And how many powerful Wall Street women do we have to lose before people begin saying “enough is enough?”

If FINRA can push a well-respected and seasoned 28-year veteran off Wall Street all the way to the Silicon Valley, then the rest of the industry simply doesn’t have a fighting chance against the likes of its Chairman and CEO Rick Ketchum or Alan Lawhead, director of its Appellate Group, or a MICHAEL GARAWSKI, a FINRA bureaucrat that only exists in the shadow — or the blatantly biased regulators Jeffrey Bloom and Robert Morris.

FINRA stinks from top down like anything sick and rotten. These are just a few of the slimy characters spreading their mess all over the Street. It’s about time FINRA’s overregulation and the handcuffing of Wall Street executives is exposed to the light of scrutiny. It might be time to do some serious spring cleaning.

Benjamin Wey Fights Back Against False Charges, Regulatory Abusers

Benjamin Wey Fights Back Against False Charges
“Journalist BENJAMIN WEY never bends his principles fighting back racist retaliationtold in NASDAQ’s lies and FINRA’s fabricated ‘evidence,’ who PLANTED lying witnesses in here, in here, in here and here to inflame fantasies by corrupt, imbecile SEC staff Steven Susswein, Cheryl Crumpton who shamelessly used racial slursshort sellers in Jon Carnes stock fraud, market manipulation and Roddy Boyd bribery, Roddy Boyd fraud in here, and here, here, and here, and here. NASDAQ is a $10 billionbusiness run by Wall Street fat cats, not a naive baby sucking toes. Asian firms choose among 60 stock exchanges worldwide to go public – many have joyfully ditched the rigged NASDAQ listing – a dying commodity with no scarcity value worthy of “deception for listing.” Jut the opposite, we have advised Asian companies to dump the riggedNASDAQ in two largest ‘going private‘ deals in recent history. Investors never care where a stock is listed, or if it’s a reverse merger – often misconstrued, or a risky IPO, says Stanford University. The NYSE, Berkshire Hathaway, Burger King, plus 800other companies are all reverse mergers – the NASDAQ itself wasn’t an IPO… 30-40% of all public companies listed in Hong Kong, Canada, Australia, UK are reverse mergers – common knowledge in basic corporate finance.
The misinformed SDNY folks were deceived by the NASDAQ and FINRA, duped by fraud stock short sellers, thus fabricated laws that never existed – in pure “doctrinal novelty,” fabricated a case with manufactured evidence – were lied to by a false, malicious “affidavit” from an ignorant, notorious rookie agent MATT KOMAR – who fantasized about normal events in Asian finance 10 years ago when Matt Komar was still a kid in high school. Matt Komar is the same lying rookie agent sued for fabricating evidence in another case. Could a law be violated when the law doesn’t exist in fact? Let the public media sanitize their lies. No one should be afraid of the truth in a land of free speech and liberty that we Americans cherish. 
It’s a fact: Nasdaq’s so-called “300 round lot gifting rule” was fabricated; It’s a fact: Senior NASDAQ staff has feverishly solicited our co-branded Asian investment club members for years to introduce new listings; It’s a fact: NASDAQ rigged a listingwas sued for racism and lost; It’s a fact: The SEC agreed: NASDAQ had rigged its listing, orchestrated by the shady NASDAQ General Counsel Ed Knight – a $100 million lobbyist, who was also former general counsel of FINRA (two lying entities); It’s a fact: The NASDAQ manipulation was strongly rebuked and reversed in a landmark SEC ruling, reported by the Forbes MagazineIt’s a fact: Ed Knight, William Slattery, other NASDAQ staff retaliated, lied to law enforcement; It’s a fact: In 2015, 26 Asian companies dumped the racist NASDAQ in droves (Wall Street Journal)It’s a fact: Counting Bernie Madoff as a NASDAQ Chairman, companies have fled NASDAQNASDAQ is an investors grave and a threat to America’s national security.”

5 RICH GUYS YOU CAN ACTUALLY LOOK UP TO

BENJAMIN WEY — HERE ARE 5 RICH GUYS YOU CAN ACTUALLY LOOK UP TO

Benjamin Wey is right. Sometimes it seems the world is broken into two camps: those who want to improve the world and those who want to make money, but that simply isn’t the case. I would argue that you are only going to see a lot of change when you have a lot of money, so to shun profit is counterproductive for those who want to make the world a better place. And there are innumerable ways of not only giving back through philanthropy (as many of the ultra-rich make a point of doing very publicly), but also making money through endeavors which actually improve the world. Take a look at five very successful businesspeople who calculate their profits using “full-cost accounting,” which calculates its bottom line using the three Ps: people, planet and profit.

ELON MUSK

Despite what his name might lead you to believe, Elon Musk is neither a marketer of cologne nor the protagonist in a television show about a dystopian future.

The Pretoria, South Africa-born Canadian-American billionaire is a serial entrepreneur and investor with a passion for (and possible obsession with) technology and renewable energy. After making his bones in the technology market, chiefly through PayPal, Musk went on to co-found the space transportation company — I’ll say that again: space transportation company — SpaceX in 2002. In 2006, Musk helped his cousins Peter and Lyndon Rive found the solar energy company SolarCity. And continuing with his interest in reducing greenhouse gas emissions through the implementation of renewable energy, Musk invested heavily in Tesla, becoming CEO in 2008. In 2013, he unveiled yet another plan for more efficient, green transportation: the Hyperloop, a proposed high-speed transportation system between Los Angeles and San Francisco meant to run on air pressure.

GARRETT GRUENER

Although serial tech entrepreneur Garrett Gruener, primarily known as founder of Ask.com, doesn’t exactly make money from businesses that improve the world in the way that others on the list do, he has championed an idea so rare for someone of his economic stature that one has no choice but to call him a pillar of socially responsible business. He is the rich guy who said he wanted to be taxed more. Not to take away from the likes of Warren Buffett, but Gruener’s 2010 article in the LA Times, poignantly titled “I’m Rich; Tax Me More,” really gives the idea of corporate accountability new legs.

He doesn’t just say, “We have money, so why not?” He makes the point that tax rates have never stopped him from pursuing business activities. This of course completely shoots a hole in the theory that the rich need to be taxed less because they create jobs and that higher tax rates would hamper their job creation efforts.

LARRY PAGE

Google has a reputation as the “Good Guy” in the corporate world and Larry Page is Google, so it’s no surprise he made the list. Page co-founded Google with Sergey Brin back in 1998 and remains CEO of the tech behemoth.

Under Page’s leadership, Google not only adopted stringent green policies within the company and placed reduction of the company’s carbon footprint as a top priority, but they also have invested heavily in green technology, especially renewable energy.

Like Musk, Page has also personally invested heavily in Tesla Motors.

WAYNE SILBY

Wayne Silby helped pioneer the idea that you can make money without destroying the world when he founded Calvert Investments in 1976. Calvert focuses on investing in socially responsible and sustainable companies. It now runs over 40 different mutual funds valued at over $13 billion. They don’t invest in ethically questionable companies and do invest in ones that promote a positive impact on the world — and $13 billion is a pretty large dollar vote.

Silby has gone on to promote sustainable investing and improvement of the world through profit by founding the Calvert Social Venture Partners and the Emerging Europe Fund For Sustainable Investing.

RICHARD BRANSON

Certainly the most notable person on the list, Richard Branson has become somewhat of a leader in business when it comes to investing to change the world. Having made his billions with his diverse venture capital company Virgin Group (and surviving a few outrageous stunts including crossing the Atlantic in a hot-air balloon), Branson has devoted a tremendous amount of time and money to socially responsible business. Along with the plethora of other subsidiaries carrying the Virgin name, Branson founded the Virgin Green Fund in 2007. The Green Fund is a firm that invests primarily in sources of renewable energy and green petroleum alternatives as well as other green business initiatives.

In addition to Virgin Green Fund and smaller investments in companies that benefit the world (most recently Buffalo Grid, a producer of solar-powered cellphone chargers), Branson also sponsors the Virgin Earth Challenge, which offers a $25 million prize for creating a practical and economically feasible way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

On the nonprofit side, Branson founded the organization The B Team, which champions social responsibility in business.

In 2011, Branson’s Necker Island estate burned down after a fire broke out. Actress Kate Winslet was vacationing there at the time and even helped his 90-year-old mother escape to safety. She recounts that he told her, “At the end of the day, what you realize is that all that matters is the people you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that stuff really matters.”

Branson is the epitome of a businessman who sees the world clearly, not through dollar signs. Benjamin Wey is right.

BENJAMIN WEY REVEALS 7 MYTHS ABOUT WINNERS AND LOSERS IN BUSINESS

AMERICAN FINANCIER BENJAMIN WEY REVEALS 7 MYTHS ABOUT WINNERS AND LOSERS IN BUSINESS

Benjamin Wey is an American business leader

A multilingual strategic adviser on Wall Street, an investigative journalist and a leading American expert on China. With approximately 20 years of professional experience, in-depth knowledge of the various international cultures and extensive global contacts, Mr. Wey has led and participated in more than 200 projects worldwide. As the CEO of New York Global GroupBenjamin Wey shares his views about the 7 signs that separate winners from losers in the business world.

We spend a lot of time in this society focusing on winning and losing. While attending Columbia University to earn my 2nd master’s degree, I had many professors that challenged us to become winners, not losers. “Benjamin Wey, you want to be a winner? ” says a business school professor. From the sports pages to the stock market, from our elections to our schools, we worry about who’s up and who’s down. There is an entire industry, the self-help book business, that generates millions or even billions for those who claim to have the answers.

Based on my experience of both success and failure in life, I have spotted seven myths about winners and losers that deserve exploring.

1. WINNERS HAVE THE EDUCATION NEEDED TO SUCCEED WHILE LOSERS DON’T.

Education, of course, is incredibly valuable, but our formal system of education isn’t as well adapted to the needs of the 21st century as it could be. You want proof? Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Mark Zuckerberg and Michael Dell dropped out of college and became billionaires. And it isn’t just in the computer world: Ted Turner, David Geffen and Ralph Lauren are worth a billion or more, and they dropped out as well.

2. WINNERS UNDERSTAND THE RULES AND PLAY THE GAME TO WIN WHILE LOSERS DON’T FOLLOW THE RULES.

You can amass wealth, get yourself a corner office and wind up in Millionaire Acres in the Game of Life by knowing the rules and playing by them. However, more and more often, I see truly successful people don’t play the game. They create their own rules. In a world of checkers players, these people are playing chess, Risk, Jenga and God knows what else. By redefining the world around them, they build success into their new game. You can’t win a million-dollar jackpot if you’re playing penny ante poker. And nobody ever got rich playing someone else’s game.

3. WINNERS FOCUS ON LUCRATIVE INDUSTRIES LIKE FINANCE AND LOSERS OPT FOR BUSINESSES WITH LESS REMUNERATION.

We read all the time about the guy at Goldman or Morgan or Chase who got a $100-million bonus, and the popular press has us convinced that everyone on Wall Street is paid insane amounts of money. It’s true for the people at the very top, but most people in finance don’t have “screw you” money — they need that paycheck and can’t afford to be out of work. Think of the people who answer the phones, run the copiers and enter the data. Do you really think they’d do that if they had a million bucks? At the same time, we don’t think of people in janitorial services as being rich. But there isn’t a city in America without at least one person who runs a cleaning service or custodial enterprise who couldn’t pay cash for a Mercedes.

4. WINNERS JOIN WINNING TEAMS AND LOSERS JOIN LOSING TEAMS.

The flaw in this thinking is the word “join.” Yes, it’s possible to team up with someone who is successful, and you can ride on that person’s coattails. But that isn’t really success so much as it is being a parasite — even a beneficial one. Far more frequently, you work with people over time, and as jobs and projects come and go, you wind up assembling a team that then goes out and succeeds. Again, it’s useful to think about musicians. The Beatles, arguably the most successful band of all time, had one member die (Stuart Sutcliffe played bass originally) and another get replaced (Ringo Starr took Pete Best’s job as drummer) before they took the world by storm. That said, it’s hard to make it if you are surrounded by people whose approach to things almost guarantees failure.

5. WINNERS PUT IN LONG HOURS OF HARD WORK THAT LOSERS DON’T.

This myth mistakes activity for productivity. Yes, there are times when you have to do something for 14 hours at a stretch; we’ve all done it. You shouldn’t be doing it like that everyday. One thing I have learned is that if you like something, it’s not work any more. When LeBron James suits up to play for the Miami Heat, do you seriously believe he’s thinking, “Time to go to work?” Basketball for him isn’t work, and the last time I looked, the NBA didn’t play 14-hour games every day.

6. WINNERS SET GOALS AND LOSERS DON’T.

Goals are actually double-edged swords. Yes, setting goals is a great way to focus on achievement. But what happens when you achieve your goal? NASA had a goal of sending a man to the moon before the 1960s ended. It was an astonishing challenge, and the brightest people in the country pulled it off. And then what? We went to the moon a few more times and canceled the last Apollo mission for budgetary reasons. Since then, the brightest people in the country have tended not to work for NASA — the space shuttle and the space station are OK, but they aren’t the moon shot. Goals can be self-defeating, whereas direction is endless. That’s why our space probes are driving around Mars, photographing Jupiter and Saturn and even leaving the solar system.

7. WINNERS THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX, WHILE LOSERS DON’T.

Again, thinking outside the box is a blessing and a curse. You have to be outside of it just enough to see a way to improve on what exists, but if you get too far ahead, no one is prepared to back you. To stay with our space metaphor, back in the 1950s, when the Soviets put up Sputnik, a private company like Virgin Galactic was beyond belief. People weren’t going to go for it because even the U.S. government couldn’t get into orbit. Today, Virgin Galactic is on the verge of commercial operations because the world has caught up to the idea of a private company in space. If you are three steps ahead of everyone else, you’re leading the parade. If you are a mile ahead, you’re walking by yourself.

One final thought about this: Winning is fun, and losing isn’t. But it’s your life. How you keep score is entirely up to you.

BENJAMIN WEY — TURN MONEY INTO MORE MONEY WITH CURRENCY TRADING

Benjamin-Wey-Turn-Money-Into-More-Money-With-Currency-Trading

Benjamin Wey is a financier and a journalist.

A graduate of Columbia University, Benjamin Wey has two master’s degrees and almost two decades of operational experience in the fields of marketing and management science. He shares his thoughts and advice with our readers:

They say it takes money to make money. This has never been truer than in currency trading. The international currency market, called the foreign exchange market (“forex” or “FX” for short), is the single largest financial market in the entire world, trumping stocks, bonds, derivatives and anything else you can throw at it with over $4 trillion in activity daily. It was once solely the stomping ground of behemoth financial institutions, but now the average investor can try to grab a piece of that trillion-dollar pie through online trading. Take a look at this intro to trading currency on the foreign exchange market.

Trading in currency is often compared to trading in stocks, except, in a way, you are buying stock in a country. You are buying a country’s currency in the hopes that the country will perform well economically and therefore increase the value of its currency and, in turn, your investment. The value of a currency is based on its relationship to other currencies, so in the forex, currencies are quoted in pairs. This may seem odd, but currency is the standard by which all things measure their value. The market value of a commodity is just based on how much currency it is worth, so the same is true with currency itself.

There are many pairs, but there are four major pairs that account for the majority of trading:

  • The British Pound and U.S. Dollar (GBP/USD)
  • The Euro and U.S. Dollar (EUR/USD)
  • The U.S. Dollar and Swiss Franc (USD/CHF)
  • The U.S. Dollar and Japanese Yen (USD/JPY)

Let’s take the GBP/USD pair. In this pair, the GBP is what is called the base currency and the USD is the quote currency. The base currency is the first currency listed in a pair. Today you would see a quote that says this:

GBP/USD= 1.66

That means that it would take $1.66 USD to buy a single British Pound. The pair always shows how much of the quote currency it takes to equal a single unit of base currency. If you bought in at this price for a single pound and the quote went up to, say, 1.70 because the British economy went on an upswing, the value in American dollars would go up. So you paid $1.66 and now you have $1.70 in pounds and you can sell that pound back for American money and make a $.04 profit. Of course, you can’t just buy a single unit on the forex.

In order to trade currency, you will have to go through an online broker. These brokers are much different than stock brokers because the forex is much different from the stock market.  There is no exchange on which currency is traded, but banks and other financial institutions trade amongst themselves all over the world. Brokers don’t charge commissions like stock brokers, but instead make their money on the spread. The spread is the small difference, measured in fractions calledpips, between what they will buy a currency at (bid price) and what they will sell a currency at (ask price).

An example quote would be:

GBPUSD – 1.6671 – 1.6677

This is a spread of six pips. They will buy at 1.6671, but they will sell at 1.6677.

Benjamin Wey summarizes

It’s similar to a pawn shop in that you will never be able to sell at the price at which you can buy. That’s how they make their money. Different brokers offer different spreads. They usually get a better spread based on the volume of business they do with a certain financial institution. Once again, it’s not like the stock market. A bank will give Broker 1 a better deal than Broker 2 if Broker 1 brings that bank a great deal more business. Just make sure to go with a reliable broker because regulation is much more lax than the stock market.

Even though it may seem different and confusing, trading in currency is similar to any investment in that you want to buy low and sell high. It can be very risky, but so can many other investments. As I always say: make sure to do your homework before making any investment, currency trading included. But it never hurts to know yet another way you can turn money into more money.

If I, Benjamin Wey, would trade currency on a daily basis, I would strict follow these rules. Good luck trading!
