Milan's Brazilian superstar Kaka just rejected $700K per week in wages to stay at his club, turning down a transfer bid from Manchester City. It is a truly inspiring move and I had to mention it. And, it's not entirely unrelated to this blog's main themes.
I try to focus my blog on value creation. Wrongly, value creation is solely associated with transaction value. However, time plays a tricky role in calculating the total value of any deal. With his decision to stay at Milan,, I think Kaka's made the value maximizing choice for his career.
