Alstrynomics is about living YOUR life
I get comments like this all the time...
Alstry, do you ever have a sunny day? I'm beginning to enjoy your posts because their pessimism is so granted that I think they are simply funny.
In real life I have great days. My guess is better than most and yes, I do have a very dry sense of humor.
As far as the economy goes, I am simply analyzing as I see it. It has nothing to do with being happy or sad. It is just my way of being objective the same way a physician must be objective in diagnosing a seriously ill patient.
I probably still have subconscious guilt for not becoming a doctor like my parents wanted....who knows? But I call things in life how I see them.... and out of fear or someother insecurity, I work really hard to be good and right.
Most of my friends are professionals regardless of their professions. Some athletes, some physicians, some lawyers, others restauranteurs, carpenters, photograhpers, commercial roofers, CEOs ect......its not about money, it's about being the best you can be....
The fact that I see business more clearly that most is just the way it is.....it may be different someday, but not today or for much of my life so far.
For most of you, if you just went to cash when I was warning about the impending tsunami, your accounts would have been 40 or 50% ahead from today. Now your account will have to increase about 100% just to get back to even......that could take decades if not longer. BTW, a number of my friends did.....
Right now I am submerged with activities for the kids. I am trying to set up a boys trip to the Carribean and another trip to the East Coast in February. For the boys trip I am organzing, the guys love golf, thus I will plan the location as far away from the golf course as possible and closer to prime cigar smoking and bikinis to stimulate group discussions on the economy, how to raise kids, and a number of other lighter issues Dad's and business owners confront along the path of life. Betweeen investing, the family, and a fairly active social life, the day fills up....the best part about Alstry's existence is it is mine on my terms......I created it, I earned it, and it is mine to lose.....until my health prohibits or some other event interferes, I will continue........ I wish the same for you.
Alstrynomics is all about living your own life at your direction.
Back to the gold LOGIC idiots like Dare who make comments like this.....
And I would argue that 30 years ago Gold was in a bubble. It's not now, since we have seen a lot of inflation since that time.
Are you fricken kidding me???...we had incredible inflation in the 70s...home prices tripled.....incredible inflation in the eighties, and ninties, and up until recently into the new decade.....gold DECREASED in price since the eighties for most of the time up until recently.
A bubble then and not now???? Why not a bubble then and a bubble now too???? We have DEFLATION in case you havn't noticed. We never had deflation after the eighties peak.
Only a few can see bubbles when you are in bubbles....those that practice Alstrynomics often are part of the few, the proud, and those that like to party in or out of bubbles.
