There’s a phenomenon that, if unchecked, is likely to cause serious damage to our system as we know it. This is so serious I’ve even heard of “economic collapse” as a possible future. What is causing this? I imagine there is probably an argument to be made that the average North American is irresponsible – but, I will say that in today’s business climate – the best way to sure-fire profits is passive business shadiness.
Unfair business practice is nothing new. Businesses of all sorts try to gain that extra edge by making gynormous charges or, in the case of credit card companies, charging debilitating amounts of interest.
Capital One, however, has done something even MORE worthy of our disgust for credit card companies. Recently, my sister was called and pitched about a credit card and she thought it was reasonable enough, so she applied over the phone for the card.
Wow, its often fascinating what happens when I look for information from other tech people and get that strange type of attitude, I’m sure they probably deal with so many stupid questions that they get somewhat fed up with anything that might resemble that. In my line of work, I often have to be in touch with other technical people, and being someone who is considered technical myself (most people think so.. haha), I tend to deal with that sort of smarmy attitude often.
