    Have never heard of him until now but he looks like a pretty smart guy and someone who should be celebrated. Would make sense if previously expressed interest in buying Cabela's and had some reason for not doing. Not sure how Singer was necessary to make the process move along but maybe. If things buying his major competition is the right thing, then good for him.

    I didn't want to combine multiple posts like this post. More a general statement of the sentiment of this thread. That said, I would take slum lord as a compliment. I lived an apartment for a long time run by a slum lord. Paint completely peeled off the bathroom wall, ratty carpet, refrigerator that didn't work, linoleum that peeled up. Super cheap rent. $400/mo in a higher cost area. Was great for me at that point in my life. Slum lords and corporate raiders are heroes as Walter Block might say. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/b...g-the-slumlord

    Morris owns a chain of liquor stores too, he built it up by squashing the mom-n-pop stores then jacking prices, exactly as he'll do with the Cabela deal.

    His business model follows that of Wal-Mart to an extent........However he does make an effort to exploit/employ locally in his own manufacturing facilities and he probably does more for the local communities than the Walton clan.

    None of this behavior rises to the point of government interference.

    Nothing wrong with investing in a company that goes up in value, that grows, that expands sales and revenue, etc.

    And privately held companies are preferable for a business owner who cares about their business.

    Publicly owned companies start to resemble government in many ways. Ownership so diffuse that there is no real ownership control, where executives resemble politicians trying to line their own pockets. Once there is no founding owner who really cares about the business itself, it can become an exercise in cashing out. M&A time.

    Beneficial transactions. So what product or service did Singer provide for his $90-$100 million payout? Forced a company to accept a buyout? Why didn’t that happen without Singer if it was so mutually beneficial? If there are two similar companies, both healthy and competitive, what is the benefit to the economy and society for one of them to be absorbed, eliminating competition?

    Right. That is why guys like Singer and corporate raiders or shareholder activists are so important. They provide a voice that otherwise doesn't exist with spread out shareholders and impose a discipline on business. Gekko very astute.






    Why didn’t that happen without Singer if it was so mutually beneficial?
    See last point. I don't know anything about this situation. But often companies don't get bought out because that means redundant employees (namely management) get fired. You don't need two CEOs, two CFOs, etc. Boards are often just management cronies. People like to protect their jobs even if it is bad for the company.

    He doesn't need to come up with a new product. Earnings were declining in Cabela's. The stock price declined. A stock price might stay depressed if the market doesn't have confidence in management. Someone might buy the company if they think they can make changes that will create more value. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/29/b...n-cabelas.html

    I have been through a big merger. You end up with double the bureaucracy, even though you might reduce the number of CEOs. They might even co-CEO.

    He was essentially paid $90 million or more. What did he provide for that money, other than pump and dump the stock?

    And if we talk about the larger economy and customers, how does eliminating completion help?

    So you think a lot of people are furious about doubling their money?

It’s a complete $#@!show of survival of the feces, with the most aggressive ladder climbers trying to sabotage others. It’s not good for a company, and it is no guarantee that the good guys will “win”. Being best at schmoozing and back stabbing does not equate with running a quality business.
    A lot of mergers are a disaster and destroy value. Many create value. Charles Koch has built Koch Industries on successful mergers. He has created hundreds of billions of value to society as a result.

    He was essentially paid $90 million or more. What did he provide for that money, other than pump and dump the stock?
    But it wasn't a pump and dump. The stock rose and stayed high. The service he provided was a better allocation of resources for the owners of Cabela's and presumably society because trade is win-win.

    And if we talk about the larger economy and customers, how does eliminating completion help?
    One plus one can equal three. If the Bass Pro Shop guy runs the business better then society is better off. More store owners aren't inherently good if they are laggards. Clearly he thinks buying the company will create value, that's why he did it. He might be wrong, but it is his money.

    This is what happens when you decide to make your company a publicly traded corporation. People like Paul Singer will come in and do this. The solution? Make your company a private corporation. Instead of an "open border" where just about anybody can come in, you control who invests in your company. One example of a private corporation where I live is In-N-Out Burger.

    Cabelas was pumped, and after the buyout, no one had any Cabelas stock. It was “dumped” in that it was sold.

    The rest is hopeful thinking. Better allocation of resources? The company was sold. That’s that for them, they no longer exist.

    In the real world, Bass has to raise prices to make up for money spent on the buyout. And they can do that due to the elimination of competition.

    M&A is not inherently bad, but there is an entire industry around it, and it can be abused by outside forces looking to extract all they can. Those people are certainly making money for themselves, but that money is extracted from businesses and shareholders, and eventually, customers. Not necessarily good for the overall economy or consumers.

    And who cares if some businesses are “laggards”? There is no inherent good for the economy to destroy and pillage a business just because some hedge fund thinks they can. If they are in business, they are providing a service and employment. The only thing that should decide if they are “laggards” are consumers. If a business can not remain profitable, then they will naturally fail. No need for a predator (or scavenger or thief) to speed up the process.

    Competition is good. Eliminating all competition in favor of the “leader” of the moment is bad. A business in second place today could be in first place tomorrow. If elimination of all competition was a good thing, then a single, nationalized healthcare system would be the best option for everyone. It would be good for a few, but definitely not good for consumers and the economy.

    And no, I don’t buy the “economics” sold in a Hollywood movie.

    "Communist" China isn't the cause of America's economic problems.

    It's a vote-generating scapegoat/distraction.

    If the trade war ends improbably in China's total and abject surrender, America's economic trajectory will be unaffected.

    Culture is of almost no importance in the long-term; material self-interest determines almost all important historical developments, including the growth of the state over time. The yankees were particularly obnoxious statists, but things would not have been noticeably different if they'd never made landfall. I was simply pointing out that, if you must obsess over culture, at least blame the right people.

They fully supported the destruction of Libya, Syria and the CIA overthrowing the govt of Ukraine which they are using as their cudgel in the over century long Jew vendetta against Russia. They hate freedom of speech and Christians so oppose the first amendment. Granted, there's Tulsi Gabbard but she's an extreme outlier and hated by her own party. The only people I see in favor of what you've mentioned would be paleoconservatives and Trump has a touch of that in him which is what I think resonated with so many people.
    I am talking old school union blue collar, peacenik Dems. 1960s - 1990s. The Democratic party does NOT even pay lip service to those groups anymore.
