The ONLY Investment Lesson You Will Ever Need



September 03, 2011 – Comments (1)

Investments only have value because of underlying CASH flow....

Cash flow comes from jobs paying wages and wages spending CASH.....(otherwise CASH flow can come from a deficit, whether public or private)

Without jobs, spending slows and CASH flow evaporates......(unless made up for a by a deficit)

When CASH flow evaporates, investments lose value and many become worthless.....

Welcome to the ZOMBULATION of the Industrial jobs are replaced by technology, and CASH flow evaporates as technology doesn't need much cash.... we are NOW heading into a new digitally based economic model.....

where people start trading with machines/computers.......and less with other people.

Where things get very convulsive is when the government owns the machines.......who gets to trade?

Sempai --

     Am I foolish to think that government spending on "old" infrastructure (roads, bridges, sidewalks) projects, in hopes of employing the unemployed, just won't work?

     Not only is it analog in nature, but if I'm an unemployed middle manager from corporate America, I'm going to be able to automatically pick-up some masonry tools and voila!

     What keeps, and will keep, people employed is education -- whether on-line or in-person. Unfortunately less than 40% of Americans have a bachelor's degree or better. And among those that do, their unemployment rate is less than 4%. Hmm . . . a pattern here Comrade Alstrymous?

     Dear Mr. President, on Thursday, please do not throw more money at roads or union labor. Instead offer incentives to encourage on-line learning. Tax breaks and/or grants please to those that still care to participate in our economy.
