I know a retirement place that the congressman (?) deserves to go to and where he would feel right at home.

Yeah, Tyler, a number of the items on your list will be highly illiquid, like stocks supposedly valued at less than their fiat cash on hand, in a market for their paper and assets that will be illiquid.  Not everything on your list looked good, Tyler.

Touting Chile, as always. Some good points nonetheless.

If you look just at debt, Chile is at about zero to GDP. Good mining country and rich agriculture. Sounds fairly ok to me. 

Also, more stable than most South American countries to boot.


Lets face it, the options are getting smaller by the day for long term investors.

" buying ...productive land overseas."

Productive for what? Have you tried to buy or better yet sell land in Costa Rica? Chile? Colombia? France? the Bahamas? Romania? Hong Kong? Singapore?

Sorgham? What else were you thinking?

Almost as warm as those engendered by the coming opportunities in N. Korea.  Mmmmm boy!  I can hardly wait.

Get your wealth spread all over the 3rd world, subject to political upheaval and laws(?) that treat foreigners like dirt.

We have our problems, for sure, and pain is coming, but I'll still take my chances here.  After all, we have both the biggest MIC & unlimited fiatscos to pass around.  Every other foreign country has to know that if the military doesn't get you, the currency manipulation will.

Real practical Simon. How are the Mongolian neighbors going to react to a gringo operating a profitable farm while everyone around him are starving. You better have quite an arsenal.

Sign me up.

His dad was another "WTF is this." The Koreans must be desperate; they're creating their dear leaders out of bread dough left to rise in man-shaped clay pots.


EDIT: This right here is five kinds of fucked-up:

Is the whole thing staged? Or are they really crying hysterically? I don't know which interpretation would be worse.

Looking at new boss, I think they are beginning to miss old boss already.

All look pretty well fed and clothed, all lined up nice and neat - the NK 1%?   Should be terrified at the thought of having to starve to death like the NK 99%'ers.  The crying probably is sincere in that light.  If it were me, certainly would want to be seen publicly bawling hysterically to stay on the 1% list with the newest "Brilliant Comrade"....

I was thinking "high level plutocrats and family pulled from the party offices and bused in" so yeah, what you said.

I suppose their chances depend on which way Sonny takes things. If he liked his dad, these folks are probably okay. If he didn't, then these folks are out of work and some of them may be out of time.

Well, those people 97% of them were forced to do the political WORLD SUCK up.

You think for one second those people are going to miss the bastard that's starved most of them to death for the sake of the Military?

Christianity or Paulianity? Was James the Righteous brother of the Lord and leader of the Jerusalem Assembly pitched from the high parapet of the temple by the 'Liar'? Some opine the tosser to have been Saul of Tarsus? Brainwashing is an interesting question indeed.

Bank of America, on the other hand, has to hold Tim Geithner’s dirty love rod.

But it wasn't worth it, because now I'm grossed out.
