A Tax For All Reasons
I have suggested that the Fed convert student loans into property bonds, but as I doubt the Fed is able to broaden its way of acting, the student loan problem will likely remain unless other solutions are found.

I know there are some super companies in Israel - many listed on the Nasdaq - and plenty of money but did not know about milk too. I think I will stick with our alpine stuff... James

Excellent article Nadia. I do not invest directly in oil and gas as commodities but do in companies that get partly influenced by what happens to the prices of those. I had an article published this week on two of my favourites among those that I hope you might find interesting. James

Thank you to all who read and especially to those who made a comment on my article. Most of us are naturally be interested primarily in the opportunity for investing today and, in the context of this article, that is Burckhardt Compression.

Equally important however is UniSieve. Its potential is immediate - although it is not yet quite ready to profit from that - and huge. The environment benefits are very important and the oil and gas industry is waking up and doing something about that which will take it to UniSieve. But what will drive them there in droves is the cost savings. It is easy to sell a product that demonstratively adds to profits with a relatively short pay-back time. Plus that product will generate an ongoing service income stream for UniSieve for years after the initial product sale.

I will endeavour to keep those interested posted on progress. James

Hello Doug, it certainly is worth a deeper look as those new regulations are coming into effect soon. Many ships are getting old and are due for replacement soon. Many of those will be built in South Korea and Burckhardt is on the spot to take advantage of that in that country. James

Burckhardt pays a 1.8% dividend. I do not know about the tax affairs outside Switzerland but if there is a withholding tax here I assume that can be offset elsewhere under doubler tax agreements. James

Israel maybe that but Switzerland is the Land of Milk and Money. I live in Switzerland but, unfortunately, don’t have oodles of money.....yet. My choices in the article hopefully will change that
