Hello Everyone, I'm a passionate student of finance always looking to learn and apply the different investing principles. My investment ideas are targeted at discovering low-risk/high-reward opportunities mainly by taking advantage of short-term mispricings and holding a long-term investment horizon. http://the-almost-intelligent-investor.blogspot.ca

I am projecting that the US govt is near insolvent and that we will be facing a new Bretton Woods currency agreement bringing gold back into the monetary system in combination with a sudden fiat currency devaluation (across the board-most currencies) against gold over a long weekend or an outright sovereign debt panic by 2020-2025. The least expected outcome double digit inflation is very likely sometime in the future. The Fed PRO-POVERTY policies are going to crush the poor, fixed pensioners and lower middle class since disposable income growth is limited. Beware middle class and retirees your purchasing power will drop dramatically when everyday necessities absorb a larger % of your income. To spread the word to the brainwashed American drones that this economy is one big illusion ponzi scheme and you are infact broke. Issuing more debt to solve a debt problem is crazy. I am accepting nominations for those that played a major positive and major negative impact on our economy.

I am a semi-retired Product Development Scientist. Most of career was with HP in Silicon Valley, developing LED based sensors and later optics and materials for high power LED lighting. Have morphed into small scale investor. For 30 years have tried to follow advice given in book by Peter Lynch...more or less did what he promised I could and have self managed IRA better than almost all mutual funds, but started with almost zero funds...so able to support wife and myself, but am not wealthy.
Now live in Portland OR.
