  • Paul Krugman says you need to read today's WSJ editorial "The Dollar Adrift" with an eye to the paper's long-term goldbugism: Focusing on currency stability over domestic recovery is a path to disaster.  [View news story]
    I love it when there is an article by Krugman. All the anti-novel laureates come out of their right wing caves to spew their hatred for socialist (which is code word for liberals or Obama Democrats) and froth at the mouth trying to put down the "ignorant" Princeton economic Prof. because they in their infinite wisdom know more than he.

  • The Aftershock: Where Does the Next Investment Opportunity Lie? [View article]
    No one can predict what is going on because we are not privy to the information that drives the market untill it's too late. Is this just a techinical fight over the 50 day MA or a fall off yesterdays top and the beginning of the end? Mabe GS insiders have the answer.

  • Recycling U.S. Coins into Silver [View article]
    Maybe they are correct, not that another "oil crisis" will cause a magical solution but in that the public will be all over Congress thus allowing the Administration to hobble together and energy bill that looks "beyond tomorrow". How that could possibly exclude natural gas I don't know but with the Administration's "agnostic view" toward gas I suppose it CAN be done.

  • World Recovery Is in the Hands of OPEC [View article]
    GW was able to do it so I imagine Obama could scare up a phony crises to justify invading Saudi Arabia (maybe for "their protection" wink, wink), Iran and Kuwait. May Obama can bring on board another Bushite like Ashcroft to plan this event since he did so well with the last US military adventure-Obama likes those Bushite losers. Maybe Powell can take his show to the UN again, that seemed to work pretty well.

  • Understanding Energy: Professional Money Management and Peak Oil [View article]
    A mute point my friend, we (I guess you mean the USA) won't change until "we" are forced and by that time oil will be priced in the stratosphere.

  • Gold: How the Mainstream Gets It So Wrong [View article]
    Exactly, like all trades, what counts is "What you pay when you buy" and "what your received when you get out". Also, those of you who are going to hold on to gold without an exit strategy independent of what you views are about government policy, inflation/deflation etc. will get your financial fingers burned. The so called "fundamentals" don't count only the movement of the trade.

  • Green Energy Portfolio: What Shouldn't Be in There [View article]
    Guess you haven't lived in the North West and been on the Olympic Peninsula where the very last of the Old growth still stands. Driving to it you will pass hundreds of clear cuts with nothing growing but brush. Also lots of sterile looking "same species tree-farm" forest which are not a natural habitat for the critters that lived in the multi species forest that were cut and then replaced with "tree farms".

  • Nouriel Roubini, One on One: More Doom and Gloom [View article]
    Cars can't run on gold, plastics can't be made from gold, fertilizers can't be made from gold. Our everyday existence depends on oil, who the hell cares about a bubble/no bubble in gold? Not the general public but they can tell you what's happening to oil and gas prices any day of the week.

  • Larkin: Gold's Stealth Bull Market [View article]
    This always happens just before the big gold crash. As soon as you see adds in the paper "bring your old silver and gold to the fair grounds Sunday and we will pay you cash"-baby, it's time to get out of gold stocks.

    That was months after Gold had fallen from $850 to $300 or less.

    Everyone's answer is "throw the bums (current lot of politicians) out on their ear" but who are you going to replace them with when the electoral system in the US will just give you more of the same to vote for regardless of the party?

  • Betting on Natural Gas, Part II: Investing Ideas [View article]
    Yes, we all agree that NG SHOULD be the mainstay of US energy policy-but it isn't and its not going to be anytime soon. I like President Obama but I am unhappy with Bush-lite Treasury and Energy Secretary choices. Michael Fitzsimmons has outlined the problems with our lack of an energy policy many times here at SA and I could not add to his articles (and frustration). I hold Natural Gas related stocks, MLPs and Royalty Trust because I like the dividends and feel they are relatively safe but I know they could crash as well as have price appreciation because of the numerous factors including politics so I hedge for now.
