As a traditionlist a strong belief that honest money is an essential component in the foundation of freedom, prosperity and the pursuit of happiness. Fraudulent manipulation of currency or other financial instruments should be a crime, punishable by courts, rather than "regulated" by the very powers that profit from doing so.
The paper casino of the last decades has rotted out the foundation of savings and, even more harmful, diverted talent from the creation of real products and technology that could have begun to lift the world from poverty, leaving that rewarding task to China, now enjoying the benefits of their success.
Investments for the last ten years have been in commodities, mainly gold, silver and oil plus some real estate. Thanks to todays financial artists (and some regulatory control) this direction has become an almost sure, steady winner as more and more have discovered the benefits of investing in fundamental value rather than gambling at a zero-sum paper casino.
