Federal Reserve has now banned recessions — at a cost of 7 trillion. There will be no more recessions. So, in a sense, there is no longer any risk in investing in the stock market — it will always go higher, it will never really collapse. Kind of like the ultimate in chrony capitalism, no?
The stock market and the bond market are completely phony, but they are the only game in town, so everyone plays them, especially since there is so much cheap money around to play them with — cheap money as in free money from the Federal Reserve. It’s all insane, but what choice is there?
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
