  • Wall Street Breakfast: Amazon Punished After Massive Loss [View article]
    RQ - the quys from the 18th century who pulled all this together were probably the best informed, most educated of anyone in their time on systems of governments. My suspicion is that they would put anyone in this administration to shame in a debate. And, I suspect they could give you a run for your money too. There are some concepts that are fundamentally "timeless". The right to vote belongs to US Citizens.

    "Radioactive Wolves" - isn't that the same as "Hedge Fund Managers"?

    And this is not the FIRST medical professional to exhibit untoward behavior when it comes to this virus. Vinson and her bridal trip. Excuse me? I would be completely ticked off if one of my friends knowingly exposed me to that - potentially deadly - virus.

    RIQ is a pacifist. Nothing in history declares that pacifists are the winners in the battles that are ever the product of human selfishness and the hunger for power. Until the world (including the Muslims) learn to follow the second commandment, there will always be the need for "weapons".

    I suspect the amount of savings that is subject to lower interest rates, interestingly including Treasuries, and thereby suffers smaller incomes offsets any stimulative effect of lower interest rates on creating new loan demand.

    We have stimulative fiscal policy to the extent each year we have a budget deficit. One can certainly argue the productiveness of policy decisions. My viewpoint is that there are many better ways to produce stimulative fiscal policy than what is being done now.

    "...they guaranteed". Who's "they", the ones who've been in charge for the last 6 years? The Fed reports to the banking brotherhood. Neither the Dems or the Repubs control or even influence the Fed.

    Wow.....I wonder why all those Central Banks are hell bent on owning Gold when they will have to find a "greater fool" to sell it to some time in the future?

    A contractionary tax hike will just add another nail to the receipts coffin in Japan. Stupidest thing that the IMF has said and only goes to show the IMF is not about helping you out, it's about keeping you a slave.

    Although, I agree with your statement, the Value of GE was pretty well established pre-crisis. So it was with MCO and other companies. Just so happens that they were heavy into areas that totally cratered. KO took a hit yesterday. Not to say it's business model is about to crater, but who can say what will happen to Auto companies, or companies like CAG or whatever is some black swan occurs that affects their core business. We just had an announcement of a fusion energy breakthrough. What might it have done to oil companies had it been an order of magnitude more significant? The point is, virtually every high value business has an element of risk associated with it. I guess that's why diversification is really important.

  • Don't Fret Over The Participation Rate [View article]
    Participation rate for elderly is also driven by lower interest rates on savings and the fact that if you have a job paying a good salary now, the question comes up, "Why leave the workforce now if you are healthy with returns on fixed income investments at historical lows?" My latest CD rollover was at 2.2% for 5 years.

    Not to mention that 57% of people about to retire have less than $50,000 in savings other than their primary residence (i.e. they can't afford to retire).

    Why not buy the preferred stock of Realty Trust? Symbol is O/PF instead of the common?

  • The Dollar, The Fed And The Market [View article]
    Why not eliminate government issued debt and just finance government by really printing the $. That will (possibly) spread the cost of government out to all holders of $ (including foreign holders). Those with the most holdings are taxed (maybe) in proportion to what they hold. Those with the least are taxed less. Of course, there could be a discussion about what happens in such a case where there is an excess of supply in just about everything we buy.
