20 way-out billionaire eccentrics While few rival the legendary Howard Hughes for pure oddness, many of the recent crop of rich and famous have more than a few quirks -- such as a CEO who eats meat only if he kills it. Wild, wild lives Are the extremely rich more eccentric than the rest of us, or is it just that their quirks -- be they creative, costly, adventurous or just plain weird -- stand out because the wealthy are in the spotlight? Take Howard Hughes, the prototype of the eccentric billionaire, who died in 1976. There was his obsession with cleanliness and his purchase of a hotel (which one?) for his residence so he could live out his life alone, watching old movies on local TV. Earlier in life, Hughes was a spectacular success as an aviator and plane designer, even dabbling in Hollywood (what were his hit films?). His eccentric obsessions were more spectacular, such as building a wooden plane, with a 320-foot, 11-inch wing span, (see photos), flying it just once, then stopping work on the whole pr ...

Executive Summary: IKEA is known globally for its low prices and innovatively designed furniture. In China, however, it faced peculiar problems. Its low-price strategy created confusion among aspirational Chinese consumers while local competitors copied its designs. This case study analyses how IKEA adapted its strategies to expand and become profitable in China. It also assesses some lessons the company learnt in China that might be useful in India, where it plans to open its first store by 2014 and 25 stores in 10 to 15 years . Swedish furniture giant IKEA was founded by entrepreneur Ingvar Kamprad in 1943. He began by selling pens, wallets and watches by going door to door to his customers. When he started selling his low-priced furniture, his rivals did everything to stop him. Local suppliers were banned from providing raw material and furniture to IKEA, and the company was not allowed to showcase its furniture in industry exhibitions. What did IKEA do? It innovated to stay in business. It learnt how ...

IKEA boss This guy and Warren Buffet are quite happy to live a normal life without too much show and drama. But there are huge question marks about IKEA company setup in terms of tax avoidance. In his faded coat, tinted prescription glasses and scuffed shoes, he looks like just another pensioner scraping by on a tight budget. Ingvar Kamprad is the reclusive Swedish founder of Ikea. And he is worth £15.7billion. That makes him the world's seventh richest man, but the 81-year-old admits he is still "a bit tight" with money. He takes easyJet flights, drives himself around in a 15-year-old Volvo, and has furnished his modest house almost entirely with Ikea items - which he assembled himself. He boasted that he changed his barber of many years' standing after finding another who would cut his hair for only £6. And when he arrived at a gala evening recently to collect a businessman of the year award, the security guards refused to let him in because they saw him getting off a bus when he arrived. A former Naz ...

A hobbyist at heart . Sceptics ruled Bombay House in 1991, the year became head of the Tata Group. Accustomed to formidable characters such as JRD Tata, Russi Mody, Darbari Seth, Sumant Moolgaonkar, Nani Palkhivala and Sir Homi Mody, senior Tata executives looked askance at the bashful and inarticulate inheritor. It took him almost a quarter century to win their respect. He had to earn his spurs over and over again. But then, the two traits Ratan Tata does not lack are resilience and courage. During the journey, Tata redefined the role of the chairman in the 21st century. He was quick to recognise that the world was becoming design-led, innovative and geared for creative destruction. So, he invented several business models, launched new product categories in distinctly different sectors, and introduced radical price points at both the luxury and mass market levels. Like other design-led legends such as Sony’s Akio Morita, Lego’s Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, Ikea’s Ingvar Kamprad, Apple’s Steve Jobs ...

King Gillette, Gillette Razors "The razor was looked upon as a joke by all my friends. A common greeting was, ‘Well, Gillette, how’s the razor?’ If I had been technically trained, I would have quit." "There is no other article for individual use so universally known or widely distributed. In my travels, I have found it in the most northern town in Norway and in the heart of the Sahara Desert." "The greatest feature of the business is the almost endless chain of blade consumption, each razor paying tribute to the company as long as the user lives." Ingvar Kamprad, IKEA "Waste of resources is a mortal sin at IKEA." "Only those who are asleep make no mistakes." "IKEA is not completely perfect. It irritates me to death to hear it said that IKEA is the best company in the world. We are going the right way to becoming it, for sure, but we are not there yet."

So you want to ban Chick-fil-a? Well, I've dug into this and did my research. IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad was directly involved in the pro-Nazi New Swedish Movement. Henry Ford sponsored a weekly anti-semantic magazine.
