  • E-Readers: The Fun Is Just Starting [View article]
    Imagine how easy it would be to provide a complete K thru university education using this platform. Just add audio and color and there would be no need for the expense and waste of public education.

  • What Use Is Economic History? [View article]
    In this case, political history is more instructive. Start with The beginning of the fed in 1913, the 1929 crash, the new deal, bretton woods and the IMF in 1944, the great society, gold standard abandoned in 1971, Saving & loan housing bubble, tech bubble, and the current housing bubble. This crisis was caused by a long string of political failures, not economic.

  • The Dilemma of Chinese Central Bankers [View article]
    I wonder if the fed will be able to resist inflating the last great bubble. With the most gold reserves in the world, they could rocket us out of this financial pit in a couple years. It won't happen because they would have to put gold coin back in the hands of the public and it would probably be the end of the fiat dollar, big government, and central banking.

  • Has Gold Been Manipulated? [View article]
    How naïve can you get? Of course gold is manipulated by the fed. Why do you think they continue to hoard it even though we have been off the gold standard since 1971. Why don’t they just give it away in cereal boxes? The reason they continue to hoard it so they can control the price. If gold was in popular circulation, the dollar would have hyper inflated against it long ago. Gold is like kryptonite against a fiat currency so it must be tightly controlled. Of course, for some there will never be enough “facts” to “prove” manipulation but we aren’t talking about a court of law here. We are talking about bankers who are above the law.

    Here is a reminder for TraderMark:

    Interesting how TM forgives Shilling for missing the "Monster Rally" but faults Schiff for missing the "Investing themes"

  • Warnings from the President: This Is a Bear Market Rally [View article]
    Reasonable investors should expect the market to drop any day now but if reason prevailed, the dow would be under 1000. Political imperatives are driving the market now, not economic realities.

  • Greenspan Sees Another Bottom for Housing [View article]
    The housing scam is designed to transfer all property value to bankers, real estate agents and tax collectors, leaving the “owner” with all the risk and in permanent debt for a giant money pit. Also remember that planned currency debasement insures that home owners can never profit long term by owning a home.

  • Looking at the Market from a Rational Perspective [View article]
    From a rational perspective we must accept the magnitude of historic change in the market since October 2007. Wall Street is an ash heap and the fed is desperately trying to coax a phoenix out of it. They will fail because phoenixes are smart birds that don’t rise for fools. There is an artificial feel to this market and a complete lack of trust by smart investors. But then again, I'm sure investors felt the same way when the Zimbabwe market rose a trillion percent.
