There are a lot of things in life, that are our fault, and ours alone. We get ourselves into hopeless debt, do stupid things behind the wheel of a car, drink too much, do drugs, smoke, or a host of other damned stupid things humans are...
There was a little suggestion in a "Daily Reckoning," last week, that all may not be as well as one thought, if certain things happen. Papers can get mixed up, computers fail, and all sorts of ugly things can happen.
Everyone wants to 'make money,' as far as I can see. It's a universal pastime and goal. The question I have, is how does one make money? Can you make money by starting a business? Some can, but most new restaurants fail within the first...
I have finally figured it out. Eureka! I now think I know why perhaps less than 1% of people are protecting themselves with gold and silver. They know that gold and silver are beautiful, and their very own jewelry is made of them, but they...
Now for something completely different! This is about China's bubble in stocks, similar to the U.S. 1929 bust, and even the 2001 one. Did the bursting of the China bubble have an effect on the rest of the world's stocks? Maybe yes, and...

There must be something wrong with free trade, because it's all the rage around D.C. Bush and all the D.C. Gang love free trade. It's as if it is the milk of life and human kindness have all been placed in one wonderful jug for us all to...

"The majority is usually wrong," Is a common phrase I use. Historically speaking, when I say the majority is usually wrong, I will admit that it is rather an opinion. Example: I feel the North was terribly wrong in starting the War of...
I try not to sell bags of US silver coins, because they are damned difficult to store. They're heavy, and weigh 56 pounds. One could store maybe 70 hundred ounce bars in the same space 2 bags take in a safe. Admittedly they are cheap as...
