  • A Science Lesson For Charlie Munger [View article]
    I know I'm dating myself here, but I do recall the ice-age scare back in the seventies. Didn't remember it until Ike brought it up, but now it all seems quite similar with the hype both created. It is a fact that the Arctic is receding. But, is it also true that the Antarctic is expanding? There are published papers showing evidence of this.

    Erhard, Dude! The universe is much bigger than Instagram And without the problems with the terms of service they have. Vine, Pheed, Flicker, GiffBoom. If you would like to unload those shares, I'll be more than happy to accommodate you by purchasing them from you at the current price.

    growingwildgs, That's a pretty clear picture. I agree with you on that. Nokia has to focus on the right agency or spokesperson for this unique feature and sell the sizzle.

    I'm on board with you on that futuretrade. I think you would appreciate this, AIER economic education bulletin Vol. XV No. 12, Dec. 1975.

    TVP, I respect your compassion. Truly. But food is used as a weapon in some places of the world we live in. Until waste becomes more expensive than fossil fuels, fossil fuels will be the primary source of our energy needs.

    This is a very good article. For those willing to take a more pro-active approach to their investing, if I may suggest, please re-read the authors paragraph concerning CEFs and their tendency to trade at premiums or discounts to NAV. Thanks.

  • Adam Posen, formerly of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee, believes the U.K. and the U.S. should stop encouraging homeownership. "Overinvesting in bricks and mortar is a losing proposition for the households involved – but also for the economy as a whole," Posen writes in the FT. It distorts savings behavior, discourages labor mobility, and "perpetuates inherited wealth," while "housing booms and busts...wreak the most havoc on economies." [View news story]
    If not the mortgage interest tax deduction, it will be the sales tax that was introduced on the back of the new health care legislation.

    Well, Fannie Mae didn't self-implode. It had a lot of help from a guy named James Johnson. By the way, it is no coincidence that Johnson and Billy Boy Clinton were college room mates.

    I'm not going to try to interpret what was said in that interview. This was a well written, informative article. There is more to this than just chemistry though. Like legislature for instance. The ethanol being made from corn here in the U.S. doesn't meet the emission requirements that the law currently requires. Ethanol made from sugar, however does. There are ships literally passing each other in the night carrying cargoes of ethanol from the U.S. and Brazil being swapped in order to meet the standards required and offsetting the emissions that this legislation was meant to reduce. I got this from Reuters.

    It's seems quite salient doesn't it D? Perhaps it's because they didn't tinker with banking regulations that work. The "overinvestment" that Posen refers to is nothing more than speculation.

    Posen is right. And commercial enterprises have been the catalyst fueling the new boom by stepping in to "flip" residential properties. It'll take a few years, but the inevitable bust is certain.
