Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

What good is having assets abroad if you can't leave the country? Or enter the country where you have it stored. I think HB might cross the Perth Mint off the list of safe places for storage. Agree totally. Things have changed so much in Australia over the past 2 years I would ABSOLUTELY NOT use th...

Re: Bill Kristol and Scott Horton Debate U.S. Interventionism

This question is timestamped for Hal. It's a question I've been meaning to ask you. Good one! ;) Well in Victoria the Parliament is suspended due to a "state of emergency". So if they suspend the election as well, yes, I would be more than happy if the US applied sanctions/political pressure. Looks...

Re: PP musings

30% cash in a near zero interest rate environment and stated inflation running at over 4% ?? Cash is kind of like an option on future assets, and one has to pay a premium for options. Yeah but with no end in sight to low rates, I have a hard time putting any money into something that is guaranteed ...

PP musings

Well, received the latest Jim Rickards newsletter, and guess what, seems rather PPish A portfolio robust to slower growth, lower interest rates, and popping asset bubbles would include: 10% gold, 30% cash, 20% high-quality government notes, 20% in land or residential real estate, and the remainder o...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I believe pp4me's point is that if enough of the people in power actually don't care to protect some right, then it won't be protected, regardless of what the Bill of Rights says. Yeah, that's what I meant. Also, it's up to the Supreme Court to interpret the text and determine whether or not the Bi...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

As for the Bill of RIghts it's just words on paper and offers no protection at all if there isn't a government in place and willing to enforce it. So the Federal Gov't in the USA, in practice, wouldn't do anything if a state didn't obey the bill of rights? Don't want to get too off topic, but this ...
