Link to explain a definition is no use here.. Wikipedia University and Real World happenings are poles apart.
We always hear when there are losses, we hear words like "our exposure were insignificant", only later to find out what "insignificant" is. Me? I'll probably wait to the last minute and see how their stocks movement are next week before deciding.
The word war is specific, whereas insignificant and organic growth is open to interpretation.. maybe you already know that. Read somewhere you not 8years old.
i am too lazy to find my financial textbook to define it so i used wikipedia. it is after all the most convenient. investopedia, moneyterms, and maybe 8000 wellknown financial sites also define it as such. which brings us to obfuscate's point..
organic growth is financial jargon. and you are as usual, arguing for the sake of arguing. let's also quarrel about what "force" means in physics, when someone asks what it means in his phsyics textbook. the man took it from a financial report. but you can go on.
and i know about half of the world's population would disagree on what "war" means. what is a war? who can define it today? the word war has expanded beyond our mere comprehension. it is amazing that you can claim that war is more well defined than "organic growth" in a financial context. ludicrous!
last post on this matter.

it always very, very, very easy to open your mouth big and yak away as to how things can be done
when it comes to be in the hot seat, how many people can really make the decisions that are feasible? when you're out of it, it's really so easy to point and laugh and say "i can do it better". worst part is, how many don't actually have any idea what is going on to even pass a decent comment or analysis.. they just found their judgements based on in real life kopitiam conversations, or listen to random people rant online and parrot them.
at least acknowledge this, and have the guts to post what you think. just saying "no good" is hardly good enough for anyone these days. and this is what an online forum of any form should be for. an exchange of ideas, an exchange of basis, not just plain "baseless accusations" like obfuscate puts it. it's easy to claim that one's logic (or rather, lack thereof) is sound when there is no proof of what it is.

Some how you conclude the original statement implied the bank did a bad job and thats purely your own interpretation.
If you really understand how the banks, then explain the issues they face. But you hestitate to explain but seemed more keen to comment on others so far despite you claim you are in the banking industry.
if there are other options that are not better, then what is the use of considering them?
it is like saying, are there other options other than sitting on a toilet bowl to do business?
of course there are. for example, you can stand on your head and do it, but what is the value of considering it in the first place, if you will end up with your business all over yourself?

when's my turn on that hot seat? 1/2 yr will do. i want, u give? lol... if not, no point issuing a challenge.
there is no need go around stoking negative emotions. that sadly, is typical of u. the simple reason ideas can easily be stolen & passed off as 1s own is not worth the risk. ideas are interllectual property, i surely do not want another dude to steal my money making idea (if i have 1). do u? therez a huge diff between bravery & foolishness. i hope u know that diff.
some things wait for proof, too late. sometimes when there is concrete evidence, death is already at ur door-step!
i am not issuing any challenges. i am just saying that if one wants to criticise, by all means; but if you have no exhibition of knowledge behind why you are criticising, then spare us. there are better things to do with your life than to be pretentious of knowledge.
typical of me to stoke negative emotions? be very careful of what you say. if you only make posts on my posts because you perceive this, since i have no such starting point in mind, i will take all subsequent posts as personal attacks.
the first step to knowledge is admitting that one knows nothing. i do it all the time.

Anyway this thread is not going anywhere as people are more interested in sinking teeth in each other than the topic itself. I am closing this thread.
