do I want to share a page with Dough Casey? I am the child of immigrants of a different language, religion and culture to that of the US mainstream. Of course had they not left Nazi Germany when they did my parents would have been killed and I wouldn't be here. But to limit migration to people called Casey who want to better themselves would also exclude religious refugees like my mom and dad; people who had helped the USA in Vietnam who feared being killed by the Communist takeover; Cuban refugees from Castroland; Russian amd East European Jews banned from studies or jobs under Stalin and his allies. If you only allow Christians with white skin who speak English already, who can find jobs or start companies now, are you going to ask the offspring of these other groups to return to their ancestors" homelands? What will Mr Casey do about the native Americans who were here before the Caseys disembarked?

The World’s Weird Self-Organizing Economy
1 month ago

Moon Kil Woong is right about the need to have a storage system for intermittant power like solar or wind. The sun doesn't shine for 24 hours and the wind doesn't always blow. I have a stock for this but it is a long-shot, a geothermal company from Nevada which also is developing storage systems, Ormat, ORA. It is not a global-investing.com pick because it is a US firm, and moreover its share has been beaten down over the volcanic eruption in Hawaii just down the road from its shut-in geothermal power plant. I take a long view.

The World’s Weird Self-Organizing Economy
1 month ago

there are circumstances in hot developing countries where solar energy off the grid doesn't require subsidies. Where the background is right the same is true of wind power or tidal energy. In places like Iceland and Kenya geothermal power makes sense. It is wrong to assume that these alternatives to oil and gas won't grow more important. And I happen to think nuclear power also often is a suitable option.

every prediction is based on probabilities derived from prior events and if you go for an outcome in sports you will lose badly,why bookies make money. however economies are less random than soccer and therefore can be predicted better---not with certainty but with some chance of panning out.
