Business Hub Roundup

Updated on June 28, 2011

Here's a roundup of some of the business hubs here on hubpages that may be useful.

Fiat Currencies

This article talks about fiat currencies and precious metals backing (or lack thereof) like gold or silver, which is rather relevant in today's climate

A fiat currency is simply money issued by a government. Without 'backing', or convertibility into something of real value (e.g. redeeming gold), the currency isn't money but debt.

Small Business Ideas

If you're not currently already preoccupied with running your own business, you might want to start a sideline entrepreneurship or small part time business. This hub has a long list of business startup ideas.

Some of its contents include:

Heirloom Tomatoes growing for small agricultural businesses.

Antique car rental and car sharing services.

Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg is probably one of the most well known person today, being the most famous founder of the popular social networking site Facebook. This hub is like a short bio of his achievements.

There has been books and movies written about him, as well as numerous hubs including this one:

As it is, you may be unaware of the other co-founders of facebook. Eduardo Saverin made the headlines in the movie Social Network, and you may have some passing recollection of the rest.

While Saverin is rumored to still have a few % of shares in the yet to IPO facebook, Zuckerberg has a net worth of a few billion. Recently however, he has started giving back to charity instead of plowing it all into facebook.

While Saverin has left for south east asia to handle his facebook games firm, Zuckerberg is still the face of facebook.

Millionaires and billionaires around the world

This hub is about wealth distribution throughout the world.

Of this wealth distribution the most disturbing is probably the rising income inequity.

Financial Leverage

In any endeavor there is a possibility of using debt in part to finance it, and this gives rise to a need to understand financial leverage.

Although a rather long hub, it has a hubscore as of writing of 99, as well as numerous examples to illustrate the points. Some of them include the use of options as well as ways to express bearish views on certain stocks. With any kind of leverage however, one has to be very very careful as it can have many unwanted side effects and no one should go on margin without careful consideration with qualified advice from professionals.
