You May Say I’m A Dreamer…

As we ease our way into this Thanksgiving holiday, I’d just like to say Thank You to all of you who read this blog and email me your comments – whether they be your opinions on the markets, the economy, the graphics, the news clips or the music videos. Your input is valuable as it helps me know what is on your mind so that I can address it.

The purpose of this blog is to provide analysis of the markets, the economy, and how world events can impact your and my clients’ wealth. I try to make it interesting and useful, while having some fun at the same time.

But, as we are now into my busy season, its easy for me to lose track of some of the important things that have nothing to do with the direction of the stock and bond markets.

I have a whole laundry list of things that bother me right now that may or may not impact the future of the investment world and our bear market that is now into its second year. As always, I’ll tell you about anything in future posts that I believe to have a bearing on our strategy or portfolio management activities.

This song caused quite a controversy when it came out – is it condemning religion, is it promoting socialism, is condemning capitalism, is it promoting social upheaval. I’ve always thought of it as just trying to get you to think about what could be possible – and what a more positive message is there than possibility.

I’ll be back with market analysis after the holiday. But now is a time to be thankful for what we have, to look toward the future and imagine a better world. The current economic malaise will run its course and over time people’s wealth will recover from the crashes in the investment and housing markets. The wars in the Middle East will end and our country will adopt a sensible energy policy that focuses on domestic natural gas, nuclear energy, and renewable resources while ending reliance on foreign oil. Health care inflation will decrease and access will increase.

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I can imagine it’s possible.

Happy Thanksgiving!
