I look forward to the day when I have some exciting comedy news to post on here. Like a TV or radio commission. But, for now, here are links to my latest Moneyweek articles and my latest podcasts.
- An interesting interview with Gordon Blankstein of Andover Ventures
- Gold forecaster Julian Philips forecasts $2,000 gold by Christmas.
- Gold might look frothy – but it’s not a bubble
- and When will gold’s latest surge end?
The latter contained this paragraph, which I was pleased with:
But this week, just as gold made new records, the Bank Of Japan took fiscal insanity to a whole new level, slashing interest rates to 0% and then announcing a newly printed pool of ¥5trn (c. £40bn) to buy all sorts of assets – Japanese government bonds, commercial paper, asset-backed commercial paper, corporate bonds, exchange-traded funds and Japanese real estate investment trusts. I have some old junk that I was planning to sell on eBay. I’m wondering if I should just cut out the middle man and contact the Bank of Japan directly.
Why does he carry on dismissing the initiatives in the stimulus package that are meant to spur the production of original green technologies and products to be exported? Obama wants us to guide the earth in solar, wind, and biothermal ahead some other nations take the jump on us. Some already have. And I enjoy jab about world-wide warming. Doesn’t he recognize that global warming is inducing the ice caps to thaw hence the oceans are climbing and chilling? It has little to do with atmospheric condition. It’s about universal climate change.
