The Little Book of the Shrinking Dollar

I read the Daily Pfennig to find out whats going on in the world currency markets.  The writer of that newletter, Chuck Butler, recommended that I read The Little Book of the Shrinking Dollar by Addison Wiggin of Agora Financial.  The book was just published in May.  He said it was a short read so I figured I'd check it out.   [more]



CAPS needs another stock market crisis

June 04, 2012 – Comments (22)

What happened to CAPS?  I used to be addicted to CAPS.  There were so many great bloggers here, just pouring out information.   Between 2007-2009 the CAPS blogs were buzzing with predictions, politics, and puntifications.  Blogs were getting 100+ recs.  Some bloggers taught about investing in general.  Other bloggers debated and taught the historical context of monetary policy.  In 2010 the good bloggers started leaving.  In 2011 the other good bloggers moved their blogs to outside websites.   In 2012 we are lucky if we get 5 blogs a day and half of those are Alstry.  I have to retreat to the message boards if I want to get any mental stimulation anymore. Seems like we need another market crisis to get all the good bloggers back.  I'm certainly not wishing for one, but there needs to be away to attract good bloggers back to CAPS.  [more]
