In so, So,SO many ways, today is this generation’s 1911.  The world 20 years ago quite probably will look as different from the world 20 years from now as 1890 looked from 1930.

We currently are living through the 21st Century’s equivalent of the WWI Era.

As happened with newspaper journalism a century ago, we need a new professional ethic for search engine optimization and news aggregation.

Invest accordingly.

The Telegraph, a newspaper, has a story steeped in irony.

Germany and America were on a collision course on Tuesday night over the handling of Europe’s debt crisis after Berlin savaged plans to boost the EU rescue fund as a “stupid idea” and told the White House to sort out its own mess before giving gratuitous advice to others.

The long and the short of it is that the German Finance Minister is rejecting the policy of activist inflation that the heads of the US central bank and of the Treasury Department favor.

If anyone knows that you cannot inflate your way out of an economic crisis, it should be a German.

Invest accordingly.

Pecuniology.com is dedicated to the promotion of financial and economic literacy worldwide.  Here, we discuss current events, theoretical and philosophical issues, history and culture, and educational topics that are related to money in the widest and most general sense, and emphasize the investment opportunities implied by them.  Sometimes, the conversation might become heated, but we will endeavor to separate fact from opinion.

Recurrent themes here are:

  • There is a cost for every benefit, and a benefit hiding within every cost.
  • All value is subjective.
  • Profit from hypocrisy.

These themes are independent of political, religious, and philosophical preferences, so long each individual is willing to live by the precepts that he or she espouses.  In particular, this involves living by the rules that one promotes for others.

I look forward to interacting with individuals of all backgrounds.

Invest accordingly.
