THE TRUTH ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET!!!

The stock market today is a speculative crap shoot where the whole market can decrease in value as much as 50% in a few days or weeks as during a crash and the extreme volatility in individual stocks is an indication that their price is being manipulated by big money and fast computers and not small investors. In effect, price movement is no longer based on fundamentals or evaluation of tangible assets.

New technology stocks are where much of the speculation is occurring and if it is a company with a truly innovative product or service then it can experience incredible short term growth. However, long duration growth is soon stopped by big technology firms which buy them up and incorporate them into their companies to eliminate competition or to give them a future technological competitive advantage.

Investing in an upstart IPO and holding on to it for the long duration is no longer a realistic goal for an investor hoping for million dollar gains twenty or thirty years from the start of an IPO.

Finally, the stock market is a short duration speculative investment which can tank at any moment all determined by whether the big money invests in it or withdraws its financial support to suddenly invest elsewhere. The stock market has become a short duration gambling enterprise and not a serious long duration investment.

If you want guaranteed retirement money security for old age then don’t invest in the stock market for the long duration. Stick with real estate, diversified municipal bonds, or a precious or rare commodity such as platinum and gold when it is not being sold at inflated prices because big money also manipulates commodity prices and makes them go up or down at will. The real value of a metal commodity is the price it takes to mine and refine it so if the commodity price is three or four times its production price then don’t buy it at this inflated value.

You probably won’t become a millionaire but you will maintain the value of your hard earned dollars until retirement when you can spend some of it without finding out that inflation has reduced your savings in a bank to a pittance over a forty year period.

 CONCLUSION:

If you want money security in your retirement years, don’t invest in the stock market for the long duration. If you want to gamble with your hard earned money and probably lose most of it then play and get burned in the stock market!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT CAPITALISM

upp

Capitalism was designed to create just competition between many competing businesses. Businesses could provide better customer service, a product at a better price, or an improved quality product all resulting in efficient exchange and the most profitable business would grow and prosper.

Monopoly or near monopoly businesses mean less competition, being able to buy raw materials at unjust lower prices, not being so innovative or producing poor quality goods which don’t last as long, buying up smaller businesses to eliminate new competition, setting prices as high as they want, demanding unreasonable low prices from suppliers who are totally dependent on the monopoly, less choice in the variety of products offered, and colluding with other near monopoly businesses to fix prices.

The only thing which is keeping prices for information, goods, and services low is international business competition but there too capitalism will no longer be functional with monopoly international banks and corporations.

There is also less competition for capital intensive companies like airline manufacture where it is very difficult for a new company to try and compete with a novel airline improvement or design since startup costs are in the billions of dollars.

If you had a great new business which was making a big profit and growing quickly then you could go to the stock market and make it go public hoping to get more money for further expansion opportunities. Today there are still some rare technology IPOs which go public but are quickly bought up by larger technology companies to eliminate competition and give them a worldwide edge.

There is in fact a big monopoly of international banks and big money and fast computers manipulating the stock market causing much short duration volatility and making the stock market a gambling crap shoot with almost no opportunity of making money in the long duration. Stock price movement is rigged and for all practical purposes the movement is rarely tied to fundamentals or tangible assets.

The small business man and woman are also threatened with extinction because they can’t buy products and raw materials at the wholesale prices only available to big businesses or franchises and can’t compete with them.

Capitalism is still alive for the big money boys but is almost dead for the small investor and small business man or woman trying to make a logical business investment with little capital.

CONCLUSION:

Competition against very big business or monopolies is less likely and the benefits of capitalism are greatly reduced or even nullified. The business becomes a special interest with government supported laws that promote inefficiency and waste and don’t produce quality, durable, and long lasting products or services. Innovation or product improvement is also minimal. Profits become more important than customer satisfaction.
