Is Pot Replacing Alcohol? It Is a Money Making Business

Pot is what alcohol used to be. It’s an industry ready to take off, but one that’s still finding its way, and one whose progress is not exactly encouraged by the federal government.

Charts That Reveal US Real Employment Status and It’s Not Good

The “labor force” from which we get unemployment statistics includes only those people who are either working or wish to be working. It ignores the retired, those in school, the disabled, and nonworking spouses—as well as those who are not interested in working. The Market Oracle

We’ve not seen this level of political polarization since the Civil War. And it’s not unique to the U.S. It’s happening around the world… a backlash against globalization.

Gold – It’s Still All About The US Dollar

The US dollar is the world’s reserve currency.  And that isn’t likely to change in any radical way, anytime soon.  Unless there is some kind of calamitous implosion of the dollar.  I am talking about outright rejection and repudiation.  And that could happen.  The problem is that there isn’t another currency that could likely take its […]

A Snapshot of My Retirement Strategy and Why it’s Not Like Yours

I think most of you intuit that I’m not like the normal guy out there. I think outside the box, analyze everything, respect and revere cycles as much as I hate them for their downside and discipline. The truth is, I’m an entrepreneur, more than I am an economist. In fact, I think economics is […]
