TheStreet.com Goes Flash Video

Bogof_flyer1Kudos to TSCM for moving to flash, rather than that crappy WMP video, they used to use. (Hey Bloomberg! How about you?)

I’m told that’s been running a couple of months, which shows you how often I’m at that part of the site.

Let’s pull a random, video to show — hey, how about this one? We showed you the ad for "Buy One House, Get One Free" on Tuesday; Later that day, TheStreet.com had an interview with my friend, Paul Kedrosky — who not only is a Real Estate guru (WTF?!) but loves the smell of Napalm in the morning !

Aside from that slight shift in title (from college professor and VC to love guru, here’s the accompanying video:

Dow Chemical CEO: US Underestimating Inflation

On Wednesday, Dow Chemical Chief Executive Andrew Liveris made a high-profile announcement that Dow would
increase its prices by as much as 20%, starting June 1. Dow, the top
U.S. chemical company, said the plan was necessary to offset the impact
of rising costs for energy and related raw materials. Over the past
year, Dow has already increased its price by about 12%, but
those price changes have been phased in gradually rather than
implemented all at once.

In the interview, Liveris said he thinks the U.S. is underestimating
the level of inflation in the economy and he expects the rise in energy
costs is beginning to destroy demand. Liveris expects the price increases his company made will eventually be passed on to the consumer:

Excerpt:

"I do think we’ve hit a raw nerve," Liveris said in an interview on
CNBC’s "Squawk Box." "I do think, out there in the world that we all
are living in, I think the consumer is screaming, and I think it’s the
topic du jour, and every company is in a different part of the value
chain."

"We’re in a part of the economy that is very elastic," he said. "So unlike electricity, or unlike transportation, which up until now has been relatively inelastic, we’re getting demand-destroyed."

Liveris estimates Dow uses about one percent of the U.S.’s electricity to make its products, which become components of other consumers goods, and the equivalent of about one million barrels of oil a day.

"We’ve done everything at Dow to be cost-efficient, energy-efficient," he continued. "We’ve diversified our mix. We’ve gone overseas for low-cost joint ventures. I think everyone has to bear some of this out-of-control energy policy."
