Five Days for the Homeless

Sun, 2014-03-09 (All day) - Fri, 2014-03-14 (All day)
Bronfman Building : 1001 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1G5

5 Days for the Homeless is a Canadian student run charity campaign during which students collect money for a local charity supporting homeless youth by experiencing the homeless life for 5 days.

The event takes place in March. Students live as homeless for 5 days; they sleep outside on campus for 5 nights, rely on food donations, have no access to showers nor their apartment but must still attend classes. 

5 Days for the Homeless helps students realise how hard being homeless really is by experiencing their life for a mere 5 days.

Canus se redresse et se (re)lance aux États-Unis

Mon, 2014-02-17 09:24

C’est connu, les plans d’affaires se déroulent rarement comme prévu. Les entrepreneurs qui s’en sortent sont capables de se réinventer. Parlez-en à la direction de Canus qui, en 2004, avait un chiffre d’affaires de 19 millions de dollars. Dix ans plus tard, il est de… 15 M$. C’est ce qui est arrivé à André Beauregard (EMBA'14), qui compte maintenant doubler ses ventes chez les détaillants américains.

Why Bitcoins Lack Currency to be 'Money'

Mon, 2014-02-17 09:24

Milton Friedman, in his book Money Mischief, reported the well-known story of the monetary system of a small island in Micronesia. At the end of the 19th century, the inhabitants used stone wheels as a medium of exchange and as a store of wealth. The colonial government imposed "fees" on disobedient district chiefs by painting black crosses on these stone wheels, thus "confiscating" them. This induced the locals to change their ways and work harder, paving roads they were previously reluctant to pave, in order to have these marks erased and get their wealth back.
