  • Peter Schiff Has It Totally Backwards - Gold Is Not Going 'To The Moon' [View article]
    With the Fed keeping interest rates artificially low., how will the Fed handle interest payments on 17-18 T debt without causing serious inflation. Some people are living in a textbook. Get real, the problem will be here in the next 5 years or sooner. We can't increase taxes, we can't cut spending, YOU tell me your not on the Titanic. We have more Debt to GDP than everyone except Japan. Good luck.

    I bought a life insurance policy and it has not paid off yet. I don't even get dividends. You can never sell at the top or buy at the bottom. Our government is slowly unraveling just don't know when !

    Geithner and Bernanke won't be around to hold them accountable when the ice cream hits the fan. They both know when it's smart to depart like Larry S.

    I have a 3D Printer in my cellar making GOLD. Unfortunately it can't keep up with the Federal Fiat Reserve. Be patient. It's just a matter of "when" not "if". Hang in there.

    This is news. I've never heard of countries agreeing before. It's now every country for themself. Save No. 1 first. How do we hold Tim Geithner responsible 6 mos. from now. He's gone with all the other cabinet appointees, some very early.OJT is wonderful isn't it. The only way out is to keep printing money. I would like to be selling the ink.

  • Tri-Tech's CEO Discusses Q3 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Your field of business should be explosive in China, India and the Middle East. Your bidding or underbidding is problematic. There seems to be a problem making money on the contracts you are performing. Stay close to home and forget world wide expansion. You don't need Sales/Estimating if you can't handle the Cash Flow problems. Partnering with a deep pockets competitor seems to be inevitable unless you can raise "a lot more money" on your own which, at this time, prob won't happen. Stick to what you know best, close to home.
