About Me:

Sh*t hot Software Engineer, with bells. Well into Austrian Economics and libertarian philosophy.

I'm very bullish on Silver at the moment (gold was so last decade), very bearish on the Fed, BoE, BoJ and US/UK/Jap sovereign debt.

Mainly invest in Silver, Gold miners, and O&G.

Investment Strategy
I trade... a few times per year
I tend to buy... on instinct
I hold for... years
Diversification is ... a hedge for ignorance

1. Understand how the world works.

2. Check where the wind is blowing geopolitically, thermodynamically (finite planet don't you know), technologically, and socialogically,

3. Invest accordingly.

4. ???

5. Profit..

Which, as…

:) I don't share the author's perspective at all.Look at the "deflation" we have in computers, memory chips, smart phones. Are prices constantly lowering in these cases such a bad thing?Shops still have to buy stock,and shift at a profit. The consumer gets a better product for the same money, or the product gets cheaper. And his savings go much further - this is capitalism…
