My Comments: I suggested the other day that it wasn’t a question of would the stock market crash, it was when it would crash. This author, who has enough credibility to be published in a global financial forum, pulled out of the markets about a month ago. I’m very tempted to do the same. What …

Why Annuities May Be Better Than Equities

My Comments: You can accuse me of bias since for many years I’ve sold annuities like those described here to hundreds of people.

The Smart Money Is Betting on A Market Meltdown

My Comments: Once again, my left blinker is working instead of the right one. Some of my readers have been upset that I’m urging caution with their money. On one hand, they may be right, and on the other they may lose their shirts. Frankly, I have NO idea when it will happen, just that …

Things Couldn’t Be Better

My Comments: Here we go again!  One day all is well, the next day we’re all going to Hell, and then the next day or week, “never mind folks, all is good”. It's the same with vaccinations. Here, you'll want to read to the very last sentence. My take is that if you’re young, or …

Still No Reason to Panic About Inflation

My Comments: To my mind, inflation is an existential threat when it routinely exceeds a certain percentage as defined annually. The challenge is to effectively define what is included in the measurement of cost increases and then to apply the resulting number to those who are affected. Those range at one end from those living …

Here are four reasons the West is headed for a ‘very drastic crisis,’ according to a veteran economist

My Comments: If you cry “wolf” often and long enough, you might actually see a wolf. My chances here in north central Florida are slim to none compared with someone in Alaska, but that ignores the metaphor associated with crying “wolf”. It simply means something bad is likely to happen. I sit and write this …
