Comments on: A new home for Counterparties http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2013/06/19/a-new-home-for-counterparties/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: CasualEconomist http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2013/06/19/a-new-home-for-counterparties/comment-page-1/#comment-47417 Thu, 20 Jun 2013 17:52:44 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=22125#comment-47417 And What happens to the thousands of small business that collectively employ the majority of Americans and already run at thin 5%-10% net profit margins but make up the vast majority of service providers in our economy? Much of their cost is labor. Many small businesses out there that provide necessary services (i.e. Heating & Air Companies, Plumbing Companies, and other small service businesses)have narrow profit margins as it is. Imagine what it would do to their overall costs and margins if they had to pay all employees $15/hour. They would go out of business, and there would be no one left to pay the higher wages. This idea, while it sounds great theoretically, is ludicrous.

Previously – one click to view the whole blog and skim the counterparties links.

Now – two separate tabs to open. And no mixing of content…all Felix, or all links.

I’ll still read, of course. But my User Experience is significantly poorer…

I read your blog regularly and through it check out the links as well, however i’ve visited counterparties several times and just never really liked it. businessinsider seems a much better way to catch up on the trending news…
