  • How 2014 Could Be Like 1929 [View article]
    Moscow (AFP) - Russia could reduce to zero its economic dependency on the United States if Washington agreed sanctions against Moscow over Ukraine, a Kremlin aide said on Tuesday, warning that the American financial system faced a "crash" if this happened.

    "We would find a way not just to reduce our dependency on the United States to zero but to emerge from those sanctions with great benefits for ourselves," said Kremlin economic aide Sergei Glazyev.

    He told the RIA Novosti news agency Russia could stop using dollars for international transactions and create its own payment system using its "wonderful trade and economic relations with our partners in the East and South."

    So why is real median incomes down over the last decade or two?
    And the unemployment figures should be taken into context of the participation rate and other factors. yes asset prices have been inflated again but how has it helped the majority?
    Bernank is bum like the other fed stooges who sat on the board after 2000 when the seeds were sown for this debt leveraged speculative bubble.

  • Buffett Says To Disregard Macro Opinions? [View instapost]
    <During the financial crisis, I watched substantial holdings in the Vanguard S&P 500 Index fund go down 55% from their high.> Fortunately Tom u were able to take the short term pain unlike many others which sold out. Buffett talks brave but when u have a play money account worth probably 1/2 a bil. What about that retiree with 1/2 a mil. with no more earning power? Valuations are not outrageous but more than fairly valued imo. It is time for those that may be scared out in a difficult investing environment to reduce some exposure and hold some cash.

  • Coca-Cola Company: Recent Price Dip Is An Opportunity To Buy The Stock [View article]
    dg difference is philip morris over the decades remained at a low p/e ratio so when u reinvested the dividend it was at a value price. KO at near 20 times earnings is no bargain. in late 1990's ko was outrageously overpriced. ko will adapt but the p/e probably will fall somewhat to reflect a slower growth future.

    "There is no inflation to speak of" This is such a ridiculous statement. NO inflation?I do not need to buy a TV every week.
    When one looks back in a few years the "No inflation to speak of" statement is going to look really foolish.

    what makes sense? High yield bonds trading near historically low rates? This is not the time to be aggressively purchasing equities and bonds. Not saying go all in or all out but transition to more cautious posture.
