Bill Bonner: Permanently High Unemployment
Bill Bonner is one of my favorite writers. His comments are thoughtful, his insights provocative. But I often wonder what he's not saying. The article above is pessimistic about our future. Yet Patrick Cox, the editor of Agora's Breakthrough Technology Alert newsletter, is bursting with optimism. Then there's deflation. Bonner says it's more of a threat than inflation. Yes, some prices will go down, but we have seen inflation during hard times before. It's called stagflation. So I wonder if there's something he's not saying. Maybe it's that we should not put all our eggs into one basket.

Provident Precious Metals
After looking at the most widely advertised dealers, I used Google to find and read dealer reviews, and Provident Precious Metals consistently rose to the top. So I gave them a try. Their website is clean and easy to navigate, and while it would be nice if they accepted PayPal and debit cards, they do accept personal checks and credit cards. They charge a low premium, ship quickly and discretely, and respond to customer inquiries promptly. If you already have a dealer you know and trust, use them. If not, consider Provident Precious Metals. Note: This is not a paid endorsement. I have no financial ties to Provident Metals.

Beware Motley Fool! - October 21, 2011

Beware Motley Fool! -- A year ago I subscribed to 2 of Motley Fool's reports. I found them inferior, especially compared to Agora Financial and Financial Intelligence Report. I did not plan to renew. But they automatically renewed. Without my authorization. Without notice. I have a lot of email from Motley Fool. My spam filter does not delete them. Yet there is nothing about this. Not even a receipt! If you are considering a subscription to a Motley Fool newsletter, buyer beware!
