But really horizontal integration was the preferred strategy. No real photography today, instead just stressing out about not writing a case, and then writing the case analysis, and coming to all kinds of businessy revelations about how important it was for this Latin American unbleached softwood forestry and pulp producer to invest its recent profits in new facilities to boost production capacities and overall efficiencies so as to maintain its positioning as the low-cost leader on market pulp in the world commodities exchanges, mitigating volatility risk based on assumptions of steady long term demand for output, 64% of which was being generated by Asian nations as the Western world’s demand was entirely flat.

My past photo professors always give me weird looks when I talk about business with them. Most of’em didn’t know I was in the business school. The graphic design teachers roll their eyes when I talk about working co-ops looking at numbers. Numbers, decisions, strategies, etc.

This shot was from the same recent session that involved the white chair. After exhausting options on four legs I migrated over to the radiator. The light was right. And this happened.

5:30AM to commute, print, and hopefully learn something.
