  • Wall Street Heathens: How Their Greed And Gambling Became The Axe Of Statist Policy [View article]
    Good points . the US tax system has become a political slush fund that politicians use to reward the wealthy for political donations that enable the politicians to get elected. A complete revamp of the US tax system that largely prohibits politicians from giving away tax advantages is long overdue.

  • U.S. Market Valuation: Are U.S. Equities Overvalued? [View article]
    pradeep,
    Just curious as to why you think the Fed or central banks can prevent a major market meltdown? And if you believe that they can .. they why have major market meltdown happened so many times before (2008,2000, etc.) if in fact the Fed/central banks can prevent them? After all the Fed has been around since about 1900 and numerous market crashes have happened since then.

    So the conclusion must either be:1) the Fed cant really prevent market meltdowns at all, or 2) they have some ulterior motive in allowing meltdowns to happen when they do (eg. benefit certain privileged insiders, etc.). But the evidence shows that the Fed/central banks cant really prevent market meltdowns at all. They may be able to delay them, they may be able to distort markets for significant time frames .. .... but they cannot prevent reality from happening at some point in time.

  • U.S. Market Valuation: Are U.S. Equities Overvalued? [View article]
    abdullah,

    How ironic ... you preach "the key to long term investment success is to buy cheap businesses and hold". Do you really have any idea or concept of what you are even talking about??? I doubt it.

    You deride the author and others such as Hussman who are essentially showing you PROOF that businesses (ie. the markets) are NOT CHEAP, yet you say long term success is created by exactly what they are proving (namely NOT buying when markets and businesses are expensive according to multiple measures).

    Please do show us mere mortals your investment genius and which businesses and markets are "cheap" now and how that will provide LT success. Naturally you have to provide some historical context and comparative proof to your investment geniu and show how valid it has been over multiple market periods.

    Mr. Ramraika,

    Excellent article with great presentation of historical and factual charts and comparative methodologies. Thanks for writing and posting it. Also very good response to Mr. Frog who is a "this time is different believer" and somehow thinks he will perfectly time this market despite the fact that market history shows "it is never different" which is exactly what you clearly show in your article.

  • They Say The End Is Near: It's 2004 All Over Again For Coca-Cola [View article]
    Too bad that the world does not tax harmful product like this nearly out of existence. The long term health costs far outweigh any commercial success companies like this achieve. As South America and other countries will find out over time with companies like this. But it will take generations to see that there is a reason why North Americans and Europeans have declining use of products by companies like Coke.

  • Irrational Exuberance - Descriptive Superlatives Exhaustion Point Is Reached [View article]
    AFIG,
    One has to wonder, if your logic and the never failing Fed can prevent and stop all crashes, ..... then how is it that crashes in 2000 and 2008 happened?
    One would think the Fed can and will prevent all market crashes .. yet they did not and never have been able to prevent them.
