  • Stock Market Experience: My Virtual Stock Exchange Experience

    stock. Apple Inc. is a multinational technology company that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services (Wikipedia, 2016). You would think that the company that brought us the iPhone would always perform steadily, but that was not the case during my time in the stock market. Apple’s stock was on a rollercoaster ride for the majority of the game, but ended down at $109.99 on the final day. A decline in sales of the all enduring iPhone and the iPad have hurt Apple’s stock recently. Barrick Gold Corporation (ABX) is another stock that I felt underperformed. Barrick Gold Corporation is a gold mining company that has operations set up in Argentina, Canada, Chile, Peru, the United States, Zambia, and among other countries (About Us, 2016). Gold has been on the decline this year, but Barrick’s stock has considerably underperformed. With a loss of 3.74%, ABX was by far the worst stock in which I invested.

  • Greenback Argumentative Analysis

    answer is clear and concise; governing officials would no longer be hired on a salary, instead they would be paid in food for their families and even housing for them to stay in. I would even go so far as to argue that incumbents hired under these pretenses would be less corruptible and more morally driven.
