What I Have Been Up To

Sorry for the lack of updates. I wanted to do a quick entry showing what I have been up to.

I use outlook to blog, and, as you can see in the picture below, a lot of unsent emails have accumulated in my Drafts folder.




Here is a picture of my Drafts folder showing the most recent email I have been working on.




Below is shows the title of the emails in my draft folders. This should give you a general idea what I have been researching about. I have highlighted in bold the emails I intend to blog about in the next few days (I will do at least one or two of them later today).

    President Obama and Bernanke are in a MOVIE about hedge funds called "Stock Shock." Even though the movie mostly focuses on Sirius XM stock being naked-short-sold to near bankruptcy (5 cents/share), I liked it because it exposes the dark side of Wall Street and reveals some of their secrets. DVD is everywhere but cheaper at http://www.stockshockmovie.com

  2. Sion says:

    You need to prioritize. Keep it simple. Summarize general themes. Decide exactly what this blog is about and stick to that.

  3. crisismaven says:

    A bubble in, say, shares, stocks or commodities happens when people believe it will "go up and up" (and is, as a rule, as with housing recently and "tech" stocks at the beginning of the millenium, again mainly driven by money inflation). Gold in contrast is a hedge against inflation and against looming sovereign defaults. Inflation by definition is the increase in money supply. There's no doubt that this has happened several fold in only two years. So there is inflation. Hence there is no gold bubble, as gold has not appreciated by a tenth even of what the monetary base has expanded!
