. October 18, 2008 SouthAmerica: On June 23, 2005 I had posted the following to this forum. But I can't find that posting. It is a good thing that I keep all my posting on a back up file in case they get lost for any reason. Here is what I had posted here in this website and also at the website of CNBC. By the way, I had misspelled Harold Geneen's name when I made the original posting to The Charlie Rose Show. ******** June 23, 2005 SouthAmerica: Last night by chance I found an excellent program about Brazil. I was surprised because usually when I see anything about Brazil it is about some problem â killing kids, burning the Amazon jungle, gang drug wars, corruption, something bad about the Brazilian economy including currency crisis, poverty and the Favelas, etcâ¦ This program broadcasted by CNBC with anchor Sue Herera about Brazil â did show Brazil as a up coming economic power and the program showed many of the good developments that has been happening in Brazil for many years. That program made think what am I doing here in the United States when the action and opportunities for growth and development is in Brazil. I enjoyed that program it did make me proud of my country and my people. The program did not have to mention soccer, which is the number one sport in the world, and Brazil has been number one in that sport for many years. After watching that program on CNBC I decided to send a note of congratulations for a job well done to the anchor of the show Ms. Sue Herera. When I went to the CNBC website to post a message on the message board of the CNBC show that she participates â Power Lunch - I had to create an account in that message board â which I did. After I posted my little note of congratulations to Ms. Herera on the Power Lunch message board I did notice that someone had posted something asking a question regarding the GE stock on that message board. I have not checked the GE stock for over a year but I decided to post as a reply to that posting something that I had posted on the Charlie Rose Show message board on March 8, 2004 after Jack Welch had been interviewed by Charlie Rose on that show. âPower Lunchâ - Hosted by CNBC TV Bill Griffeth and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera take an up-close and personal look at the companies, people, and hot trends driving the markets and influencing Wall Street. Sue Herera another TV anchor-person also participates on this show with Bill Griffeth. Power Lunch Message Board: Posting about the GE stock: 1) What is wrong with the GE stock?? It has done nothing but go down in value. Is it time to dump it? *** The reply that I posted to that posting on the Power Lunch message board: SouthAmerica: On March 8, 2004 after watching Jack Welch being interviewed by Charlie Rose on the Charlie Rose Show I posted the following on that showâs message board as follows: Jack Welch reminds me of Harold Genine the first super star manager in American business. He bought everything in sight in the 1960âs and 1970âs and IT&T became a glamorous company in Wall Street, and Harold Genine became a legend in American business. In the last twenty years, Jack Welch built General Electric to be one of the largest American corporations in the world. And today, General Electric is one of the major outsourcers of American jobs to countries such as India. I will not be surprised to see General Electric following the same path as IT&T did since Mr. Genineâs retirement in the 1970âs, when we look back twenty years from now. Twenty years later, Genineâs performance didnât look so hot, and IT&T became just a shadow of what the company used to be. A friend of mine just bought some General Electric stock recently, and he asked my opinion about that company, and the above was my answer to his question. ****** The above information is also posted at: The Charlie Rose Show: Interview with Jack Welch on March 8, 2004 http://www.charlierose.com/shows/2004/3/8/1/an-hour-with-jack-and-suzy-welch General Electric Corp.
