Here you find me. Another one in this world. Living my life, working for the betterment of society. I am especially interested in the fields of the emerging markets, as well as precious metals mining. I tend to avoid the bullion in favor of the mining stocks, as I would rather put my faith in actual people rather than forming a hoarded idol of dead metal. Update: Have now bought physical silver, and feel reassured. Next up, more silver and a shotgun. Be prepared! If anyone is looking for a humanitarian way to combine capitalism and charity, I recommend looking at Kiva. This site lets you take part in Micro-finance with budding entrepreneurs around the world for as little as 25 dollars. True, you receive no interest, but you are still helping to support the world economy, and more importantly, making an outreach to real people. Sometimes in my mind that's a better approach than the top-down trickle-down of investing in huge overseas conglomerates.
