The United States and Denmark are the only two democratic countries that have a debt ceiling, writes James Surowiecki in The New Yorker. No one else finds it all that necessary. Why do we?
Possibly because we are one of the few democracies that sends 535 mostly undiciplined numbskulls to Capitol Hill.
Agree, agree, agree.
First, TG-UK is going to be the benchmark, and, yes, the camerawork, production, and writing of TG-UK are brilliant. That has never been lost on me. You can see the production value runs much deeper than just the three hosts, and I still get a chuckle over the "Tutu" rolling credits for the...more
Nothing about the whole field of technical analysis tells you about the present value or future potential of the business. It's little better than gambling based on the last horse race, or if an MLB pitcher is wearing his favorite socks.

I only have a one-dimensional view, but if by near future you mean short term, I wouldn't touch it myself. Maybe later when I sense a turnaround, but I thin...more
Jim109 - A pound of gold is 12 oz, not 16. Therefore a pound of feathers actually weighs more than a pound of gold. It has to do with using the tradition of using the troy ounce for gems. Don't assume there's logic involved, that's just the way it is.
I wonder - are the people calling for $5000 gold the same ones who were writing books like "Dow 20,000" a few years back? At some point the underlying value will overtake momentum. Like someone else said here - who are you going to get to buy your $5000 gold? Nobody buys (or at least nobody should buy) without a reas...more
