The Three Horsemen of the Rubicon?



Just three? Didn't the legend imply that there would be more?

1. Conquest
2. War
3. Famine
4. Death

Which one are we missing?

I just read your older article about SLV and GLD not being good inflation hedges due to the expense ratio. I agree that aluminum foil would likely be a better hedge. While I suppose toilet paper might be a good hedge too, I'm not going to bother stocking up on TP as a hedge, because, the way things are going, I can always use the U.S. Dollar as cheap substitute for TP if necessary. Ha!

JReality,

Perhaps our "strong dollar" policy is to be taken literally! ;)

I thought I heard yesterday, that the dollar is in the crapper. Opticalrecatlitis strikes again!

Looks like a 30-year credit bubble to me.

nanute,

Crap on, crap off, the crapper!

(Those late night infomercials must be getting to me. ;))

What happens in 1981 stays in 1981. Oh wait. I think that only applies to music. Never mind.

Mark,
I think you are referring to Vegas.
