Meanwhile in Australia

August 10, 2011

Good with explosives? Here’s your chance: Move to Australia at the Southern end of the Great Barrier Reaf (short drive from beautiful Airlie Beach), 300 days sunshine a year. 7 days working, 7 days off. And a yearly wage of 1,2 million Aussie dollars (that is USD 1,32 million dollars); that’s without bonus. Yes, while […]

Obama – fail

August 9, 2011

I was one of the few people to be very hands-off when Obama was elected. The man talks to much, his teeth are too white-polished. The New York Times published an Essay last week that made me smile… “The public was desperate for a leader who would speak with confidence, and they were ready to […]

Deflatie vs. Inflatie – Bonds vs. Equity – …

September 12, 2010

Op 24 Augustus ben ik Amerikaanse Treasuries begin shorten.   Al wekenlang zit mijn mailbox vol met debatten of het wel versus niet van zo’n bold move, tegen 95% van de adviezen in, ik denk er anders over: until the fat lady sings; of ze gewoon even haar stem oefent of al aan de zwanezang […]

Back to the 80s

September 3, 2010

De Tijd verwijst terecht naar de dramatische economische staat van België: het aandeel van de Belgische economie op wereldschaal is nu zelfs lager dan in het rampjaar 1982en de loonhandicap tegenover de buurlanden is nu groter dan toen.  Toen in 1982 werd in Poupehan besloten om de Belgische Frank te devalueren om ons zo uit […]
