The World’s Weird Self-Organizing Economy

in energy statistics the past is prologue but doesn't determine outcomes. as technology improves developing countries CAN get electricity without carbon, for example in countries with lots of sun. We have a pick in India. And in western countries too even with oil prices falling it is not hard to fine alterrnative energy plays.

Daily Stock Pick: Invesco Ltd. (IVZ)
1 month ago

the stock selection business is under a cloud as investors buy index funds. the author and many analysts he quotes are optimistic based on earlier investing methods, but we need to be told why we are going back to them, if he believes this. It could be argued that the market volatility and downtrend in late 2018 will lead to a recovery for stock-picking, but that will require more than just quoting some figures subject to change from analysts covering Invesco

if it works it will be wonderful. It sounds icky to put a tiny drug feed into the eyeball but it is a way to deliver the medication where needed. I wrote about its great performance to boost my newsletter subscriber base but none of my foreign picks this year to date have done as well

The Rainbow Sign

DearAlpha

Not my invention at all. There is a spiritual called Rise & Shine which tells the Noah story, which all Americans learn to sing as kids. It has the final verse:

Lord gave Noah the rainbow sign

No more water but the fire next time.

That marked the end of the Biblical flood.

do I want to share a page with Dough Casey? I am the child of immigrants of a different language, religion and culture to that of the US mainstream. Of course had they not left Nazi Germany when they did my parents would have been killed and I wouldn't be here. But to limit migration to people called Casey who want to better themselves would also exclude religious refugees like my mom and dad; people who had helped the USA in Vietnam who feared being killed by the Communist takeover; Cuban refugees from Castroland; Russian amd East European Jews banned from studies or jobs under Stalin and his allies. If you only allow Christians with white skin who speak English already, who can find jobs or start companies now, are you going to ask the offspring of these other groups to return to their ancestors" homelands? What will Mr Casey do about the native Americans who were here before the Caseys disembarked?

I just posted the performance tables on www.global-investing.com, which show nice gains with an unfortunate consequence, that our yield portfolio lost two decent pay-out entities last week, a bond that was called and a stock that was taken over.
