" of an exalted moral or mental character or excellence;"
"admirable in dignity of conception, manner of expression, execution, or composition"
"Having or showing qualities of high moral character, such as courage, generosity, or honor"

Re: Which is the noblest profession on earth ? Kheti OR daaktari

any profession done with "noble" intentions.like what Robin Hood did ...burglary, killing,looting. all come under noble professions.

yea hope so...I guess zyzzva meant it in a collective way and not individual attitude towards professional excellence. like we say...politicians are all thiefs etc...

aaaah....need to go to cafeteria and get a fix of chocolate shake to lighten and cool things in my mind...

Can u please explain what is " if done well " in investment banking .
The present state of world ( recession ) is because of ingenious ways and done well theorems of the investment bankers .
Using the right portfolio (or create a new swap model) and give 100% of your efforts to make the portfolio work for you, without cheating the systems/govt rules.

Yes, we do write theorems, as you call it. We have a code of ethics too which we follow and we do not deviate from the rules. Like in any other profession, there are cheaters in trading sector too, taking undue advantage of the Reuters, Dow Jones, greedy investors who do not think twice about the interest rates etc. Corporations which do follow ethics and stick to the rules and regulations do not get greedy and invest in risky/unreasonably volatile markets...(I can quote private banks and also Investment banks who are still doing well).

Looks like I really did miss the point then. Please help me understand. What does farming comprise of? Is the farmer working for himself (for his own livelihood) or is he giving away his produce for free for it to be considered noble?
For the time being lets forget that farming was the mans giant leap towards the current phase. Because like you said, I was going to say the same thing about a bank.

I am sorry but I really do not understand how can one "profession" be noble over others. (I am not talking about charity here).

Re: Which is the noblest profession on earth ? Kheti OR daaktari

Kya aadha sawal poochto ho bhaya. A profession can be noble only if people practising it are noble and it improves the life of an aam aadmi.
Politics can be a noble profession if done honestly. Bureacracy can be noble if done with intent e.g. T.N. Seshan. Daaktari can be noble if daktar is not milking the patient for money.

Hell, even prostitution is noble if you are not filmed and posted on net

I think we have already established that in strict sense occupation/profession/work/deeds/ are not noble/ignoble, it is intention. Still you can't box the whole range of man's action into one category.... certainly there is a difference of class between different occupation.

Why is Farming different from Banking(nothing personal, it could be teaching, writing or any other occupation)?? Farming was man's first step towards civilization. It was his first act of getting rid of the animal within him. His recognition of crops as sustenance and survival which led towards the formation of society/culture/tradition etc. And furthermore started the opportunity of other occupation.

Agriculture falls under primary sector because it is of primary importance. The whole idea of a self sufficient economy depends upon a single premise whether the economy is able to feed all the mouths or not.

exactly... it depends on the definition of noble, isn't it?... Doctor treats people so they are disease-free but what if he treats a killer... is it noble then? or should he care who is he treating?

In my view everyone is selling a product or services... doctor sells services and prescribes medicine which he gets commission for... mechanical engineer works in factory which produces cars and sells them... banker works in a bank company and works within established financial norms selling services to people who store or invest their money through them... nobody seems to be doing anything better than the other...

Can we have Landyabhai comment on this issue... I would love to hear his arguments.

Question Rakhi

What is investment banking ?

Does it means investing your own money in shares/Mutual Funds and thus creating a promising portfolio and making money out of it ?

Or is it got to do with some sort of a Job in some banking institution .

I know zilch about economy /commerce , hence the ignorant question .
