they are all linked, but you know that, i think.
what has been roiling my bowels for the last two years is how to protect assets.
i like to think that my manufacturing assets are immune, but i must have raw materials[alumina, nickel, copper, chq steel, natural gas] so as to produce products. in some kind of global, cataclysmic disruption there would be some apparently simple items, crucial to an industrial society, that would disappear in the twinkling of an eye. shutting down the usa so fast it would make your head spin.
and then there are the financial assets.
in what form should they be held now, do you think? and where should they be held?
7 years ago, after the wtc events and the disappearance[?] of the gold in the comex[or was it the nymex] vault[a little discussed feature of the events of that day] i decided to put a sizeable fraction of my financial assets into physical gold.
recently, i took all my commodity gains. liquidated all equity holdings because of a marketplace that i consider to be more rigged than a mississippi river boat gambling tables in the 19th century.
and have been contemplating translating all those dollars into gold.
and then the question arises, where to hold the gold? in the usa? or a private swiss bank?
well, questions i probably shouldn't raise with you folks.
but, the "collapsed house of cards" image is a valid one. everyday, i listen to cnbc. read the ft, the wsj, the nyt and encounter reality so skewed as to move it into the realm of grotesque prevarication.
imagine that the financial press was able, with a straight face, to report a 3.3% increase in gdp. impossible. this is either a completely fraudulent story or a story that will become adjusted after the elections.
how does one make intelligent decisions when confronted with a house of mirrors?
can one escape the rabbit hole?
as i may have mentioned, i reside in metro-houston. the other day, the wsj published a piece telling the world how houston has been unaffected by the real estate problems afflicting the rest of the usa.
so, i talked to some of my contractors[metal building construction, pool construction, arborist services]. in these fields, these guys are the tops in this area. they all told me that 2008 was going to be their worst year ever. and that the number of foreclosures was rising based on what they were seeing.
so, in an ebullient energy economy, when houston goes south, you will know that the usa, in its entirety, will have fallen into a crevasse.
i close this with this observation: odd isn't it how neither of the puppets have spent any time discussing this financial cataclysm. and how virtually all of the media[of all persuasions] have allowed them to be silent on this critical topic?
night thoughts from an old guy.
