How to Invest in Barack Obama's "Workers Paradise"

The Obama administration may be doing everything in its power to destroy private industry jobs faster than the government can "create" them. The U.S. government itself may be the best growth industry in the U.S. as the government directs taxpayer money into the industries and pet projects of its choice.

Why the Gold Bull Market May Begin its Last Leg Sooner Than You Think

The gold market in February 2009 is trending up towards its all time high of $1,023 per ounce made on March 18, 2008, after a correction that lasted for seven months. The price of gold in this upward trend may reach as high as $3,700. I conceive that this price move may transpire within the next two years.

As bubbles tend to repeat over history, there are a number of markets that can be instructive in determining the dollar amount and duration of a long cycle.

Will the U.S. Suffer an Inflation or Deflation in 2009-2010, (or Both)?

In my article, The Credit/Debt Crisis: A Depression Era Stock Market and America's Financial Failure?, published on my website on October 10, 2008, I posited four possible scenarios regarding the outlook for our general economic future. Of those four scenarios, it may be that we are experiencing the most chaotic and potentially destructive scenario, one that may be difficult for many to envisage:

Why Our Economy Will Not Prosper Until We Have Hard Money and How You Can Profit From It

What is meant by the terms "real money" or "hard money"? I associate hard money with a gold-backed currency or a consistently well managed paper money standard, both of which can protect the financial system from the many dangers of a fiat, poorly managed paper standard. We know that the main danger of a paper standard is that if too much money is printed, it becomes worth less as the value of the money is inflated away through excess supply.

Why Long Term Investing in the Stock Market is not Dead

During the heat of the financial markets and stock market meltdown in December 2008, this writer wrote that long term investing in the stock market was not dead. I related that investors may have been better served during the meltdown by keeping part of their portfolios in long term equity investments. Investors who wish to learn how to start investing in the stock market may gain insight about the markets by studying this previous long term buying opportunity when stocks were hated and on sale.

The Credit/Debt Crisis: A Depression Era Stock Market and America's Financial Failure?

With the Dow Jones Industrial Average below 9000, we are witnessing an epic battle between the forces of a stock market crash and possible economic deflation, on the one hand, and the might of the Federal Reserve and government, on the other. We face frozen credit markets and a huge debt burden on our citizens and government that has built over decades as both citizens and the federal government have been living beyond their means.

Stocks, Gold, Oil, the Dollar, and Inflation: A Potpourri in the Current "Unwinding of Debt" Crisis

We have seen the gold price peak at over $1,000 per ounce at the time of the Bear Stearns bailout, and decline into a correction afterwards. I have written on my website in previous articles for many months that I was expecting a temporary pause in the upward progress of the gold and oil markets, and in many other inflation hedge style investments.

The Obama Factor: Why His "Change" May Make You Economically Worse Off

Americans are known for voting according to the health of their pocketbooks, and this year's election may be no exception. While Ronald Reagan's election in 1980 emerged out of the very noticeable dissatisfaction with the economic policies of the Carter years, Senator Obama may capitalize on similar sentiment among voters today in the race for the Presidency.
