Opening up a new continent in Caps; finally some justice for the stockpickers and a new challenge for the rest of us; innovating caps (7)

August 28, 2009 – Comments (3)

1. I believe in Caps. I think that a Caps will become the preferred web-environment for (all) investors. I think that actual buying and selling will be possible within them. I think that analists, economists, financial journalists, stockletters and advisers will tie their work to it. I think that the Caps will become global and cover all markets. I think that they will become the prime originators of trends, hypes, fads on the markets. I think that they will have millions of members. (I think that Caps could become a generic name like google or coke.)   [more]

Capitalism rocks!!!; the long view(1)

August 16, 2009 – Comments (6)

Humanity learns. (Do not imagine that learning as that of a child. Children learn what humanity already knows. It is the kind of learning that is driven by discoveries and inventions. The kind that again and again begins from scratch, where every interesting question is to big to answer, where no method is given, where even the language has to be constructed.)  [more]
