  • Taxi Medallions Are Safe Because Uber Will Implode [View article]
    agree completely.

    TAXi reminds me of some pre-1978 legacy air carrier. it only has value because of regulatory protection.

    and UBER et al remind me of all the budget airlines that have been coming and going ever since 1978, cumulative net profits, minus tens of billions

  • Still Trying To Make Sense Of SNB's Bombshell [View article]
    Marc, thanks for your coverage on this. I'm still trying to understand why the SNB did this, after so recently reaffirming the peg to the euro.

    the official statement gives some clue.

    it appears that the expectation of euro decline against the euro was a major factor, but that's not a new development, and i don't understand what happened to cause the SNB's sudden reversal

  • Voodoo Economics Versus The Growing Percent Of Income Needed For Necessities [View article]
    amusing about Krugman, but i am more amazed that the real mean income has fallen for all quintiles, and for the mean of the top 5% !

    no wonder such large majorities think that the USA is "on the wrong track"

    this author finds gems that everyone else misses !

  • Volatility Can Be Risk, At Rare Times [View article]
    agree on this being a good article.

    for investing in a bubble, and getting out, my strategy is to use long dated call options, which periodically expire so it forces you to take your gains.
