"The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible."

The San Francisco Giants are ranked 7th most valuable team in the MLB at $563m, up 16% over last year.
Bill Neukom bought the team in 1993 for $100m.
The San Francisco Giants recorded $230m in revenue in 2010.
Revenue sharing costs for the team 2011 will rise significantly compared to last year.
The Giants' 3-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in late September posted a 9.25 rating, an all-time high for the franchise.
The previous record was 7.8, the night Barry Bonds hit his record-breaking756th home run.
All teams in Major League Baseball rose in value this past year except for three: the New York Mets, San Diego Padres and Cleveland Indians.
The average MLB franchise is now worth $523 million, an all-time high and 7% more than last year.
The New York Yankees are worth $1.7 billion and are baseball’s most valuable team for the 14th straight year (since Forbes began valuing franchises in 1998).

Barclays projects the total costs of the earthquake will amount to 12-17 trillion yen ($152-217 billion).
- Building damages = reconstruction costs = JPY5-10trn (1.0-2.0% of GDP)
- Expected losses to GDP = JPY2trn (private consumption) + JPY150bn (exports) – JPY217bn (imports) + JPY5trn (manufacturing output) + JPY0.3trn (electric power industry output) = JPY7trn (1.4% of GDP)
- Total economic cost = JPY12-17trn (2.4-3.4% of GDP)
And the GDP impact:
With reference to the patterns following the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of 1995 and other factors, we revised our real GDP forecasts (q/q saar) as follows: Apr-Jun (to +0.8% from +3.2%), Jul-Sep (to +3.2% from +2.4%) and Oct-Dec (to +3.0% from +1.9%). In fiscal year terms, we lowered our forecast to +1.7% from +2.0% for FY 11 and left our forecast at +1.8% for FY 12. In calendar year terms, we lowered to 1.6% for CY 11 and left our forecast at 1.9% for FY 12.
