Why India Has't Done So Well As Other Countries

India used to be one of the great agricultural countries of the world. They have the weather, the soil the rain, the labor and everything else but the government in India protected the farmers. A farmer  cannot own more than 12 acres, that's for their own good, that's to protect them from the evil foreigners etc etc. 

How can somebody with 12 acres compete with an  Australian farmer that has 120,000 acres or a million acres? whatever They cannot compete with 12 acres but the Indian government is protecting all of those poor farmers like they protect many, many parts of Indian economy and that's one of the reasons why India has not done as well as China or other places.

Raising Interest Rates May Be The Catalyst For A Drop

It will be a catalyst or maybe the catalyst if that causes the stocks to finally go down. You know stocks have been going up for nine years, that's very unusual in in market history. It doesn't mean they can't go up 19 years without a correction but it's unusual so we're getting closer and closer.

What I said was we're going to have more economic problems and market problems, we've always had them so saying that we're going to have more economic problem it seems to me it's pretty much like saying, "well next next week it's going to rain", I mean it's the way the world works.

Investment Opportunity: Agriculture In The US

Agriculture in America is pretty depressed right now as you probably know maybe an area where there's an investment opportunity. But just because something is depressed doesn't mean you should be investing there because it can stay depress for a long, long, long time. You have to find a change that's taking place as well. Something can be depressed from 15 or 20 years, you have to find the change and change doesn't happen every day but if you can find something cheap and if you can find a positive change maybe you should do more homework and find an investment.
