The Illusion of Capital

Ever read one of those articles that gets you more and more excited the further into it you read?  One of those “Oh yeah, that’s what I’ve been thinking, but didn’t know how to express it!” articles? Well, today’s Daily Reckoning was like that for me. In the article The Illusion of Capital,  Dan Amoss […]

The future – in light of the past

I haven’t posted in what seems like forever.  It’s a combination of work and a lot going on personally, but really just apathy on my part.  I’m spending a lot of time on fantasy football and stuff with my kids, and I hate saying the same things over and over in a different way.  “Yes […]

We have not […]

2009 Shock and Awe

I read this a few minutes ago from yesterday’s DailyReckoning.com.  It’s an excellent article by Doug Casey. I’m going to quote a few paragraphs from his article (linked above) and highlight a few items which tie into my diatribe about savings yesterday. “The things they’re doing are not only unproductive, they’re the exact opposite of […]
