  • Dan Ariely: Why The Next Market Downturn May Quickly Become A Full-Blown Panic [View article]
    It is all very simple. Buy diversified ETF's with low fees. Reinvest regularly. Wait 30 years. You'll be rich. As someone on this site said once before, a portfolio is like a bar of soap, the more you handle it, the smaller it gets. Just don't play poker and no one can take advantage of you. Sounds boring, but boring can be good.

    And not just for the sake of jobs. We've gotten so cheap in this country that we are letting our infrastructure approach 3rd world status!

  • Initial Jobless Claims falls 34K to 262K [View news story]
    Agreed. After the downturn, I think too many employers are looking for the "Red Squirrel", a term used for that perfect employee that can do anything for close to nothing. When employers start to realize that they are losing sales share due to lack of productivity, then they will be forced to hire the grey squirrel.

    Yes, the government can keep hundreds of workers quiet about the fudged numbers. Nothing ever leaks out.

    Don't think so. Last year's 1st quarter GDP was negative.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: A Geopolitical Risk To U.S. Stocks? [View article]
    I agree completely, the only ones who will be hurt badly are the Greek people themselves, but, I hate to say, they brought it on themselves.

    How could all these people suddenly owe taxes rather than get a refund? Did they all cash out in the market? Did they all decide at once to add deductions to their W-2?
