RIP Business Suit?
"Tina Ob is a professor of management at Babson College and she says, a lot of students will come to her. You know before they're interviewed for the first internships or first jobs and they will ask like Bush should I wear this job. So she thinks about the question of like how professional and professional norms a lot when I asked most people what is the most big symbol of the business world and visit professionalism almost everyone says the business eventually and Tina started thinking about why in about where these norms come from also she herself had a special relationship with the business suit because before she was in academia Tina worked in banking and I absolutely were businesses because We think about the prototype of a banker is that you have a tailored suits white man play golf. I'm a black woman doesn't play golf. So I had to get the soup right and they was. I mean I had the best. They were beautiful suits and they were tailored. It was by putting on a crown almost I felt special I. Felt you don't have on my uniform. This is my beautifully tailored uniform and people perceive me differently. So now Tina works in academia and she loves researching things and so all of this got her thinking like wait why is the business suit? The thing that we all wear to work like what about kilts or row observe why not something else so she started tracing the business suit back through time all the way back to its origins in the sixteen hundreds it turns out we have Charles the second to thank for the suit he was the. King, of England four hundred years ago. Yes and at the time when he became king, the fashion in the royal courts was like very very over the top men were these huge poofy wigs and they had these big sleeves on their clothes and crazy colors because di was very expensive. So it was a sign you were wealthy men wore high heeled shoes but all of his over the top nece in the royal courts it was it was starting to cause some problems for Charles getting all this criticism from religious and economic leaders who were saying that the royal family there were morally Herat's overly decorated, and so he was looking for a way to try to. Present himself and As more restraints, the sewage back then were made from wool instead of silk, and even though the colors were still kind of like Easter and colors just all over the place. This was still super restrained at the time and it starts getting even more strain. So details on the codes when Charles the second I started wearing, them were quite long but they got shorter and shorter and shorter and eventually the. Colors that people in suits became more muted product. We see today or at least what we used to see I, mean I actually can't remember the last time I saw someone in a suit, and you know says, she can't remember the last time. She wore one I have on a workout Sir Yoga pants but you know what typically going to work I wouldn't have the song. Oh, it's the same for me talk. It's so nice, oh. Yeah. I can actually there's been a lot of talk on social media and in all of these articles think pieces about how much people have been loving dressing down Lali living that yoga pants life right and it's not like working from home is going away. I. Mean millions of offices are closed through the rest of the year and beyond and. Even for people who do go back to the office, the setups probably going to be pretty different probably fewer people some partitions, maybe less reason to suit up there. Also Tina says that now the people have tasted this yoga pants life going back is going to be hard. There's something to say about the sigh of relief the collective sigh of relief I think the world. That tells you that there was labor associated with getting dressed in a professional way. Tina says for now she is advising her students to still put in that Labor for job interviews in banking and consulting jobs, or at least take care of the top part that people are GonNa zoom suit jacket suit jacket. Exactly and you know the suit has survived four hundred years of change electricity, the combustion engine, the Internet two world wars the suit has survived. All of that is working from home really going to be the thing that takes it down death by Yoga. Pants, seriously towards yoga pants that killed the I'm on. I like the idea of the suit as King Kong. But you know I don't know Cardiff because the business has been around as you say for a very long time for four hundred years I mean. Things change and maybe this is the business suits swansong like maybe it's time for us to start wearing other kinds of close. WE'RE NOT GONNA be wearing suits forever right drew I put this all to Tina and she said, you know if you want to know the fate of the suit right now, you've got to talk to people who work in fashion right look at fashion person at twin watcher about what we're seeing from shoppers and what designers are

"Let us begin today with a story that is both straight ahead business and economics and at the same time. Oh, so very geopolitical. We learned this morning. Exactly. How profitable the most profitable company on earth. Really is. And if you're thinking, wait KYW, we already know how profitable apple or Google or maybe Exxon Mobil is well think again, we speak here of the national oil company of Saudi Arabia Saudi Aramco by another name, the company opened its books today at least partway for the first time since it was nationalized back in the nineteen eighties. Wall Street was pretty impressed which for Saudi Aramco seems to have been the point from Washington. Marketplace's Scott Tong, it's as going the money printing machine known as Saudi Aramco made one hundred and eleven billion dollars in profits last year. That's almost twice what apple made nearly four times Google's profits. And. Five times ExxonMobil's. This is really the most information we've ever gotten Ellen wall. That transversal consulting is the author of Saudi Inc. Everyone's kind of been wondering what what is this big horrible secret that they're hiding the answer is that there isn't a big horrible secret.

As you said in in Liberia between Liberian early on. And I would always see like like the fruits would just sort of grow wild like there'd be orange trees like on the sidewalk, and there'd be mangoes and pineapples and just it just grew right? The ground swell was very fertile. But it always struck me how wasteful it was because it would just it would fall to the ground and just spoil or people will people will take them home. And and they spoil because there was no there was no canneries right there. There were no there are no process. And there was no processing so it was just a life the lifespan of the fruit.

"Jay here. Ryan Davies associate professor of finance Babson college here to talk about bonds. I really am enjoying learning about bonds and not having a weird fearful mystery next. We're gonna go to Maryland and talk to Jim in Maryland. Jim. Hello. Born and Bradley. Your previous caller brought up subject of savings bonds answers, a lot of questions that I had. I got a question back in the early sixties when I was in elementary school. We pay the done to get a stamp book a war bond worth anything other than going on EBay. A war bond. Ryan knows Ryan's young. We'll see what do you know about war ads before my time? All right. Sorry about that. Okay. Spent my milk money. And and it matures. I don't know if there's any as their general any any time to turn it in right now it should. I although I think those war bonds for special, right? I mean, they were they were designed to finance the war effort. Yeah. The Vietnam war. No, that's okay. Hey, call anytime. Okay. All right. Hey, Jim in Albany to gyms, no waiting Jim in Albany, Bradley. Hi, hi, Ryan. How are you? Hey, I'm fifty eight I got a 4._0._1._K hundred thousand in it, and I'm pretty well diversified. But I'm still wondering air, sorry, go more into funds and styrene. I've got about twenty percent and bond investments and the rest of it in stock investments. That comes advising. And we can't do that from afar, we can just call you about the instruments and how they tend to work. I want to take more of a hit a lost about seven grand ready to win a week. So again, we cannot give personal advice. To more bond funds. What I wanted to ask at this time. What's the what do you want to ask? They get more into personal. I appreciate the call. That's personal advice. It depends on your situation which takes a down not a phone call next and sorry about that. Did you need to talk to someone that specifically going to advise you your adviser for that? That's personal vice we're not doing that. We can talk about how the instruments work. Now, it's Mike in Florida. Hello, mike. Nice to talk to you Bradley enough. Thank you very much for the show tonight. I'm enjoying it. Thoroughly. My question is is actually you may not be able to help you. Because of the last caller says you can't give any advice but mass mass municipal bonds fresh. Very low cost with vanguard. And I'm just wondering if bond funds versus Barnes. I know that Dan carried out so take one or two percent for their guidance. And all that that, you know taking. Taking it upon yourself to just get yourself. Is it a better move in most cases than go on with with vanguard that's gonna take out a percentage of the money? So I think I think Ryan can answer that because it's really just the wisdom of the pros and cons of bond funds over individual bonds, which we kind of went over, but we can go over again go here. Yeah. Know. And I think for the average investor having a diversified portfolio. Bonds is is is not practical. The transaction costs. In in bonds. Are you small size and co to sell them? There's not necessarily a buyer on the other side by them. You're going to have. No, you know, one of the reasons why you have bonds is because you use them almost as like a safety net. Right. And you're talking about individual Bosnia individual fun takes care of. To seek those cuts mass community through group Bank art, and it's, you know, interestingly enough, it doesn't go up very much as most farms, but it's the Saqlain if it's a down month for a few sounds. I'm getting more shares for months, and that's just compounding, which seems to me the right way to go. And I was wondering if you know compared to stocks, there's a little more safety and all that every month. You're getting more shares. Gets reinvested. So if it goes, if the value goes down, you get more of them, cool what you mentioned. More and more in giving my risk averse itself. Right. I guess a good mixture of stocks bonds is always more diversification is probably Stephen King. The worst times times right now. I think it's. We don't know what's going to happen. I have a copy or smell, so, but I appreciate your time. I just I really enjoy your show. I wanna let you know. How important is a lot of us advice. Thanks, mike. Well, we can do our this kind of thing. We can we joke. Thanks for your feedback on that. Mike and Florida good guy. You can just tell you can tell right away. He's a good guy. And who's not? It's Paul in west Roxbury, more local. Hi, pal. I wanted to ask your guest. Issue bonds, which ones. Or principal protected. I want my principal to be protected. Could you explain a little about that? Thank you very much. What were the two types of bonds? You wanted to know about. Municipal bonds. And government issue bonds you west bonds treasuries, which one siren sure or principal protected. Okay. We got it. Go ahead. So so treasuries are not insured, but they're backed by the full faith of the US government. And so to that extent, they're considered risk free. Because this is the US government. You know, he's never going to default. They can always print new new money to to meet their debts. So whereas municipal bonds asserted come in two flavors. There is municipal bonds are issued where you do have default risk. But traditionally specially weaker weaker municipalities. Also, add on sort of a layer of insurance that. The other insurance companies provide against the fault. So they're using the money to buy insurance against the fall. That's right. So you get a little value, but you get more safety when when they're issued they go to what's Montelena insurance company. They've thank goes and provides an extra layer of protect. How would he know either? If his what type of municipal bonds, he has whether it's the insured or not, and how does one know and they're buying them.
