Lawrence J. Gitman has defined finance as ‘an art and science of managing money’. It implies that finance is Both art and science. Finance is a matured science since it provides knowledge as to how and at what time a firm should invest to outstrip other firms. Cohabitation between unmarried, unrelated men and women is legal in your state. It is against the law in Florida, Michigan, Mississippi, and Virginia for unmarried opposite-sex couples to live together. Even though the laws are not enforced, the IRS does not want to entertain the violation of any state laws, even on paper. So if you live in one of those four states, you will not be able to claim her. In the 46 other states, unmarried cohabitation will not keep you from being able to claim her.
What is important is not that General Motors, Edison, and the Rothschilds became great and strong; it is that they started near the bottom. Whether the penniless Prussian officer Siemens, or the half – deaf, almost unschooled, errand boy Edison; the provincial, awkward – not to mention Jewish – Rothschilds in a world of prejudiced, arrogant aristocrats, or the undeveloped Japanese clans of 1860; they all started with nothing, except a systematic approach. Even General Motors, while a large corporation for the America of 1920, was a poor second to ford. One can argue, of course, that even without any such approach Siemens and Edison would have been notable inventors, the Rothschilds well – known bankers, and General Motors a sizeable company. What gave them leadership, however, was the systematic approach with which they applied their ability to the opportunities time and history had put within their grasp.
But to do so would require a far more cunning and savvy GOP than we have currently seen. If they were really so capable, why couldn’t they just leverage their savviness to simply win the 2008 or 2012 Presidential election in the first place, rather than wasting its energy to, as Richard Serlin has asserted, simply cut science funding, which doesn’t really seem to meet their true goals (which I would assume would be to attain political power).
