Dear Fools

January 19, 2011 – Comments (5)

     I just wanted to thank everyone for keeping this blog so active. I've learned a ton and have managed to turn myself around from a huge loss to a modest gain in the past year. I dont know if anyone remembers me from my previous blogs but i just got out of the army last january and have been going to nursing school and working part time at publix since then. I started investing in 2007, lost my ass, learned about shorting around S&P 700, lost my ass again, but took my lumps and kept learning and growing. I now feel i can just hang out in commodities and get rich, so I've liquidated nearly everything this morning and will be buying my first home, a cozy little place on 1.5 acres for 25k cash at the end of the month. With a $300 per year property tax, and 0 debt, i'm done working for possibly the next seven years or so and intend to spend my time relaxing in my backyard and experimenting with sustainable horticulture. The most important lesson i have learned in my short but busy 24 years is that the past is gone, and the future will never be here. Love and be happy in the present, because it's literally all you have :)  [more]



Can we get a little deflation convo going?

October 23, 2010 – Comments (1)

Basically, I just feel like the contration would be positioning himself for deflation right now. Everyone and their mother knows that massive inflation is a certainty in our future due to QE, but wouldn't the money created have to circulate quite a bit for inflation to take effect? If banks aren't lending, and people are spending less due to unemployment/underemployment, etc (others hopefully learning to save) ....... wouldn't deflation be unavoidable? I don't want to pretend I know much about this...but I want to learn, and I know this will be a great place to start. What are some of the most likely scenarios that could put us down that road?   [more]
