I'm Not Keen On Cyber Currencies

I am not keen on cyber currencies. There is no question that the computer and the internet is changing everything we know and there's no question that money will be on the internet someday. I am skeptical whether it's going to be in any of the crypto currencies for a variety of reasons. But even if it's in one of them whether it's Bitcoin or one of the rest is questionable.

Bitcoin and Blockchain

Bitcoin and blockchain are two entirely different things. Blockchain is changing and it's going to change everything we know about the world. I wish I could find a way to invest in blockchain I have not so far.

This Bull Market Is Lasting Longer Than Usual

It certainly is going into extra innings. The last bear market or economic hard time was in 2008-2009. So it's been over 9 years since the last one. That historically is an anomaly. We usually have problems in America every four to eight years, so this one is lasted longer than usual.

A Cashless Society

My daughters are 10 and 15-years old and they will probably never go to a bank or a post office or a doctor. (In the future) we won’t be able to send letters or cash a check, as these institutions will simply cease to exist. We will operate in a totally cashless society.

China Will Strike Back

You think the Chinese are just sitting around? China’s a huge buyer of American agriculture, so of course that’s the obvious place to hit back because that hurts Mr. Trump the worst. It’s not Americans, it’s Trump. Trump and his guys, those are the ones they have to hit.

Trade Wars Are Usually A Disaster

The next bear market is going to be the worst in my lifetime just because of the debt but if we also have a trade war, it’s going to be worse than a disaster. I’m extremely concerned. I’ve read enough history and been through enough markets to know that trade wars are usually a disaster.
