I have several friends whose new FY2009 contracts have different language in their Terms of Employment agreements. Things are tightening up for lots of people [even IBM changed their TOE documents] making it easier to fire/layoff/resource out. My best semi informed guess is that is the answer.
But wasn't he supposed to be "retired?" Living the high-life on his successful investments? Especially commodities??

Don't believe everything you think

Well, I have retired twice, living off of good investments but I still work 60 hour weeks. It's one of those habit things.

Knowing the connections on this, I truly think folks are just making waaaaaaay too much of it.

I am concerned there will be a tinfoil shortage if this keeps up.
