    After the movie premier of "The State Taxman Cometh" Amazon will be fried. Like mini sausage.

    freeman Amazon looks like a 'tulip festival'. Maybe it is just the name. 'Amazon' sounds more exotic, than 'Apple'. And maybe this Bezos is the greatest con man who ever lived.

  • Surviving And Prospering Over The Next 4 Years Of Economic Darkness [View article]
    jhooper there are very few creative people. But anyone can create red tape and push paper. So government creates dependent people and paper pusher jobs. Bush and Obama went to Harvard (so did Romney) so they can argue Omniscience. Its all fine and dandy. But the creative people have to foot the bill in the end.

  • Good News For The Market From Congress And The Fed [View article]
    muoio Peter Drucker also argued that 'free trade' would also no longer work for reasons that knowlege intensive industries quickly become natural monopolies and since it is so easy to offshore the production. So we need a form of tariffs.
    So basically all of our politicians (both parties) support economic ideas that Peter Drucker predicted would be bad for America in his book Post Capitalist Society. Sadly no one listened.
    I think the End Game is coming very soon. Maybe then there will be a rebirth. For my children I hope so.

    muoio Reading your comment is interesting. I recently noticed 'Post Capitalist Society' laying on the floor near my bookshelf. Guess my 4 year old knocked it down. Thought maybe should read it again so started thumbing through it. The great man argued that capital nor labor were the drivers anymore but knowledge. So essentially the trickle down will be from 'knowledge'. So supply side will not work anymore due to that. Had never thought of it that way related to supply side.
    Thanks for the comment as it fitted in with Peter Druckers argument. Peter will be sadly missed. His vision was awesome. A truly great man

  • Apple Is Falling: Why You Shouldn't Buy The Stock In A Hurry [View article]
    IBM is 80 percent body shop now. But it still does have a creative component. Is a clothes designer a 'packeting marketing operation'? Basically Steve Jobs was like high end designers like Ralph Lauren. Once software and hardware are commoditized like 'cloth' then its the design/packaging that comands the bucks.
    In the cycle the first 45 years is before commoditization. We have reached the commoditization stage, in hardware (1990) and software 2000 (dotcom crash). Like cloth (1800?), and electricity (1900).
    The other approach is hiding it inside as a platform (do not sell it at all). The genius of google.
    I had a packaged software executive sneer at my saying that 'google is not a software company'. That clown sold out to IBM a 'services company' which others call a body shop (maybe grey matter shop would be better). Yes and google and apple have higher margins than most software companies. Because they do not sell software. They use their own software to enable and adverstising platform. And actually have better software than most software companies.
    They build an ecosystem.

    It's the New Normal. Forgot who said that. My 4 year old daughter is doing better than me at investing. Buys and sells about once every 6 months. Only buys the best at temporary lows and sells at temporary highs. Of course it is me doing wearing her hat

  • The Economic Significance Of Avoiding The 'Cliff' [View article]
    Elliot you do not see globalization off shoring face to face. I do. My entire work group team is Indian and the shuffle back and forth to India. Why? The next generation is being trained. I am the only non Indian and 20 years older than my coworkers. There is no future in the American equation. At least no affluent one
