Did you know your employer could take out a life insurance policy on you without you knowledge or consent?  The practice is called “Dead Peasant Insurance” where secret life insurance policies are taken out for low-level employees with the benefits paid to the company upon the employee’s death, regardless if they still work for the company.  The practice was highlighted in Michael Moore’s recent movie, “Capitalism, A Love Story”.  The video below is a report from ABC News regarding this practice.

Marc Dreier’s $400 Million Ponzi Scheme

October 4, 2009 | My Ramblings | Videos | No Comments

Below is a very interesting interview by 60 Minutes with Marc Dreier who ran a $400 million Ponzi scheme.  Mr. Dreier was a respected, Yale and Harvard educated lawyer who ran a big Park Avenue law firm.  He was initially arrested in Toronto for impersonating an officer in a pension fund to get a loan from a hedge fund when his scheme began to unravel. 

Mr. Dreier is currently doing 20 years in prison.  It’s amazing that he could get away with his scheme for so long and that people were willing to lend him hundreds of millions of dollars without ensuring he was legit and capable of paying the money back.

Manage Your Health Information with Google Health

September 25, 2009 | Healthcare | Videos | No Comments

Google has launched Google Health to allow you to store and manage all of your health information in one central place (see video below). It’s completely free and all you need to get started is a Google username and password. With Google Health, you manage your health information, and you can access it anywhere, at any time.

Google Health allows you to:

  • Keep your doctors up-to-date
  • Stop filling out the same paperwork every time you see a new doctor
  • Avoid getting the same lab tests done over and over again because your doctor cannot get copies of your latest results
  • Don’t lose your medical records because of a move, change in jobs or health insurance
  • Share your health information securely with a family member, caregiver, or doctor


Google believes that you own your medical records and should have easy access to them. The way we see it, it’s your information; why shouldn’t you control it?  For more information visit Google.com/health.
