  • Japan's GDP Problems, The Big Picture [View article]
    It's about an ageing demographic. You cannot push on a string. The population is both ageing and shrinking. Low growth is the natural consequence of these facts. It might be better to focus on how well Japan has done considering its situation.

  • U.S. imports more coal even as Appalachian mines shut down [View news story]
    High energy costs are going to change the way people behave. If it costs $26 a tonne to move coal from Pennsylvania to Florida maybe we should stop doing that.

    You are in good company. Those who have made a lot of money over the last six years are the most cautious. I think they may be onto something...

    Good to focus on the fundamentals and though things are not dire there is little doubt they are also not good.

    People worry far too much about taxes. You only pay taxes on profits and for those who have trouble here profits are good.

    That's a good thought but when people need to sell they sell everything they can and that includes the really good companies.

    There is never any evidence of a recession until after you are in one.

    Good advice from your advisor. Given the history of predictions however I would find another advisor because the chances of the first one being right a second time are pretty much zero.

    When you've made a lot of money it is wise to be cautious. You don't go broke taking profits. It only takes a 50% loss to wipe out a 100% gain. And trust me the gain of 100% is harder to make than the loss of 50%.

    Also an investment that goes down 50% needs to go up 100% to breakeven.

    You are confusing financial leverage with genius. There are a thousand ways to die if the financial leverage goes even slightly against you.

    Real estate is probably the most over talked asset class in the world. Almost everyone who has made a killing on real estate did so because they put down very little money. If you buy a property for $100,000 and you put down only $5,000 and it goes up to $200,000 you make a gain of $100,000 or 20 times your investment. But if you paid cash all you did was double your money. Still good but not something that will impress at cocktail parties.
