Welcome. Looking forward to reading your stuff
The type of graduates America needs more of - engineers and scientists are not going to appear any time soon. The work required to get through a top engineering program and PhD program is extremely difficult and the monetary rewards just aren't there. Going through an MBA or law program is a walk in the park in comparison and all the money in this finance-obsessed economy goes to them.
Furthermore, most Americans aren't even aware that all the great advancements that have made them wealthy: computers, internet, laser-technology...are the product of scientific and engineering research and development. The country that produces and nurtures their scientific talent, will be the big winners in the future.
As long as America only worships the financial engineer, they are on a one way trip to the bottom.
You're absolutely right ... You've got my vote for Schrool Czar
What year did you graduate from Columbia's value investing program?
Value investing at an average P/E of 150 - you picked a hard task.
Maybe he means perceived-value-investor?
Great to have a value investor posting. But on an aggregate
level, the last time the SPX had any hope of "potential" value was when it was 666 and heading south. Now it's
just another bubble, and a third-rate one at that.
Great! Hopefully your erudite comments will include something for some of us who have become accustomed if not addicted to a certain Victoria's Secret caste to the best and most precosh...precosis....prekosh....smartest of the
I get John Mauldins reads - early last year I replied to one of his Outside the Box posts . In a kind way calling him Pollyanna about his THEN views of the economy and its direction . I developed my views from blogs like this (ZH) . He over the months has changed his bright cheery comments to reality comments, not pollyanna anymore . Wonder if he is also to be considered a value investor for his clients . I look forward to sane realistic commentary on whats going on around us. Good luck
Thanks for your post II .. I read your post about healthcare and education ... I agree with you on education but in CA the average cost per student is $5000 PER YEAR; how do you get $10,240 for K-College for US?
On healtcare; obesity is not as much of a problem for the individual as it is for US Gov ... compare individual obesity growth with Gov obesity growth ... Who wins? ... Gov 28% of GDP = me at 5'7'' at 410 lbs.
Welcome to ZH, good luck with this crowd.
Damn, until I read that you're from Cali, I thought I may have blacked out from too much Southern Comfort and Vicodin and wrote this myself. I look forward to reading your thoughts.
And by the way, maybe you can remind Warren Buffett what it means to be a value investor once again - he seems to have gone over to the dark side.
I think Warren Buffett has decided to make friends instead of money ... but he's pretty smart, so maybe it's who you know and not what you know in these 'new' times.
looking forward to your posts
