  • 7 ways men live without working in America

    Almost one third of all working age men in America aren’t doing diddly-squat. They don’t have a job and they aren’t looking for one either. How do they live? What are they doing for money? To me, this is one of the great mysteries of our time.

  • Should you own (maybe just a little) bitcoin?

    Is crypto the (new) trade of our lifetime? Heretofore each downturn has been followed by the price of the coin recovering and then going on to greatly exceed its previous high. Doesn’t that scream long term buy and hold?

  • How the Federal Reserve can really help America

    The Fed’s boosting of the economy by keeping interest rates low disproportionately helps rich people and thereby actually disadvantages those in need. As such, the Fed needs a wake up call, or maybe a reset is a better way to put it.

  • Why the meme stock revolution will last

    Sometimes things really are different. Crypto certainly is. As for the retail investor revolution, I’m less certain, but if you consider that the driving force behind it is really technology, then that would seem to be different, and to a degree permanent.

    The bull market in news is over, finito, kaput. Not forever of course but for now. So what’s next for the news business?

  • Commerce Secretary tells how to fix the crazy car shortage

    So we have auto shortages and billions of dollars of car sales lost, prices gone bananas for used cars and thousands of jobs at risk. What the hell happened? Well COVID yes, but executives made some bad calls too. That plus over-dependence on a fragile and non-U.S.-based supply chain.
