I am a gold / silver stocks investor ... I have been so for many years and I see the bull market in commodities and gold continuing into the future for years to come. My approach to investing is the macro view - top down - continuous research and conversation into the mechanics of our world economy and markets ... hence SeekingAlpha. In my quest for better understanding I am interested in all facets ... food, science, technology, medicine, ecology, global warming, trade, geopolitics, demographics, psychology, history, war ... how does it all work? where are we headed? My focus is on the mechanics - how it actually works. I don't spend too much time thinking about what's right or wrong or how it should work. I have a generally positive and constructive view of our leaders, investors and the public. I don't hate bankers, rich people, politicians, lawyers, the military ... or even Archie Bunker or Joe Six-pack. I am more interested in how these different people think. ... and of course how can I benefit from this knowledge?
