  • The Real Drag Of Government [View article]
    The "real drag of government" is the wasteful misallocation of scarce resources: capital and raw materials. The problem in the USA is a crisis of philosophy, and this leads to the instability in economics and politics not to mention morals and ethics.

  • Nokia: Another Round Of Restructuring? [View article]
    The current situation with Nokia reminds me of Dr. Ferdinand Porsche in the 1950's holding thousands of patents that other car manufacturers needed. Slowly, the company began building quality cars and hit big with the 911.
    Nokia has the opportunity to begin a similar quest with the tech patents, research people on hand and it's reputation for tech leadership and quality.
    Unless something changes, Microsoft will likely drop the ball in two or so years and have to hand off the smartphone products to a resurgent Nokia.
    I sold some at a small profit and will hold other shares for a long time.

  • 2 Silver ETFs To Play For Growth Amid Turmoil [View article]
    Emmet: Thank you for the great info on SILJ. On the strength of the other SA article, and the possibility that I know the Chanin family from the distant past, I bought a small position. However, the additional research you've provided is very useful as always.
    It is time to reread (for the 5 or so time) the book from which the quote was taken. I first read this novel in 1965.

  • Non-Correlated Assets Can Buffer Turbulence [View article]
    Emmet: Thanks for this concise summary con recommendations. As I was reading your post, it occurred to me that another non-correlated position might be in VXX or equivalent as the market grows to the sky; and/or tumbles back to earth. Any thoughts.

  • The Johnny Appleseed Approach To Investing [View article]
    Good advice for all, and a timely article.
    I went to all cash in late August in my SEP & IRA and am looking for good multi-family properties with positive income stream thru the retirement vehicles. This market is way too volatile and unpredictable for the next year.
