    Any vaulters here?

    I guess it's an interesting title for this post - the reason why I have used it is due to this article I read: http://www.entrepreneur.com/magazine/entrepreneur/2007/july/180062.html Does anyone use polls to find products or use polls as muses? I am thinking it would be quite a good tool -...

    OFF-TOPIC The Kiyosaki Crash

    Just like most crashes, I'd say you can blame greedy stupid amateurs, who get involved and always bring down the house. One of my best friends who is a bond trader on Wall Street has always told me -- When Joe Sixpack jumps into a hot market, that's when the experienced investors jump right out...

    OFF-TOPIC The Kiyosaki Crash

    While I think Kiyosaki would be 'chuffed' to think that he can move markets I doubt he is really to blame for the subprime mess. Mainly it was the fact that those buying the debt (hedge funds) didn't do their due diligence and got burnt as a result. "I have never seen any proof he ever made...

    MYTH boomers will crash the market

    Okay we don't have a fence in Australia - However we do have some of the tightest immigration laws in the world. If your an illegal immigrant and you get on a leaky boat and land in Australia you will be arrested and sent overseas to a processing detention facility (read: jail) where you will...

    MYTH boomers will crash the market

    > With that said, where does the influx of 100 million working immigrants play into your equation? What about France, Germany and the rest of Europe? And Australia, Canada and the UK which aren't going to get 100 million immigrants??? They will be taking money out of the world (and US) stock...

    MYTH boomers will crash the market

    In reply to nomadjanet - No I am wrong - because you have more rep that me! ;) If your friends own real estate that has enough positive cashflow then perfect, but that can beg the question - why are they still working? (working decreases time to find deals and invest further, for higher...

    MYTH boomers will crash the market

    I will make a few more observations why the boomers will crash the market, but it requires extra steps to prove. Now I am going to say the exct opposite of what I've just said, but her me out - the boomers themselves will not crash the market... Sophisticated investors will crash the market...

    MYTH boomers will crash the market

    Okay heres why the market will crash: ~ We are already due a depression. (Proven by the fact we have one every 75 years). ~ Baby Boomers will be retiring = not earning money (or high income) from job, which means less disposable income to buy things and less money to pump into the stock...

    Real Estate How about a beginners RE thread?

    Well PhxMJ is putting together a Wiki which I plan to add many pages too. I think a Wiki is better for this sort of thing for two reasons: > Anyone can add to one main bulk, rather than having to scroll through pages and pages. > Focus great posts in one place, rather than either sticky them...

    Real Estate Credit Reporting on Bad Tenants

    Sell the debt to a debt collector and move on. Usually I won't report the tenants unless they trash the property. If someone can't pay rent, fine - move on. If they trash the property - then I'm unhappy! Rgds. ProInvestor

    What do you read every day?

For me one is a page of blog/RSS feeds from such people as Friedman, Yahoo Finance (RK), Freakonomics, SEO/Internet and Trader Blogs (smart trader, investmentU, Chris Perruna). Another...

    What do you think of my current situation?

    Famous stars getting into franchises - how?

    It is my guess that many franchises give away franchises to stars so they can use those same starts in promotional / marketing material AND to help sell other franchises. However it must be said that most famous stars aren't fantastic at business and a franchise can provide the much needed...
