Toward Understanding Left-Handedness-VIDEO

22 November 2014 - 19:46 pm
 

Are you left-handed?  You must know someone who is southpaw.  There are all sorts of superstitions around left-handedness.  Is it a curse?  Is it dirty?  Is it a faulty wiring of the brain ?  Are lefties more creative?  More accident prone?  It seems like we know very little about it. This Cool Video from It’s Okay to Be Smart explains some of the latest thinking on why 10% of the population is left-handed and what it means about the brain’s organization.  The video runs about 5.5 minutes, but it is both entertaining and informative. 

 

“The longer our obsession with GDP goes on, the longer the issues that really matter to people across the globe will continue to go ignored,” Mr Green said. “It’s not a measure of our well-being and it shouldn’t be a guide to all decision making.”

GDP was introduced as a concept in the 1930s by the economist Simon Kuznets, who warned at the time that “the welfare of a nation can… scarcely be inferred from a measurement of a national income”such as GDP. He later pointed out that there are distinctions between quantity and quality of growth, and between short term and long term goals.

“But we have ignored Kusnets’ warning,” said Mr Green, and we now talk about GDP as if it were “handed down from God on tablets of stone”. But major institutions are now weighing in with alternative measures of growth.

 

ISIS says it will soon issue metallic coins. The early reports suggest there will be gold, silver and copper coins. Isis is expected to announce shortly how their coins will trade. The indication being that they will trade according to the value of the metal of which they are made. Many critics of the fiat currency regime may be attracted to this new money.
I see some of the same problems that I saw with Bitcoins, though Bitcoins are fiat currency. Their “mining” may be on a gold-like pace, but Bitcoins are not backed by gold,nor does price appear to be tied closely to the price of gold.  
To the extent that the new money is perceived to be more sound that paper money, the coins will be hoarded. To the extent that they are hoarded, they will not provide a sufficient means of exchange. The monetary equivalent of hacking may be counterfeiting. The US and other countries work hard to prevent counterfeiters, though they still exist. The ISIS coins appear to be vulnerable to counterfeiting.

Paul Tudor Jones famous interview and documentary “The Trader” is a classic among market participants. It is one of the few places you can actually see a true Market Wizard and the young  money manager that would become a billionaire in live action. After watching it a few times over the years here are the lessons I have gleaned from watching the master in action.

  1. It is possible to see that a market is dramatically overbought and to prepare for and then capture huge gains after the sell off.

  2. Risk small amounts of losses to make large amounts in profits.

  3. Bet against times when numerous leaders must agree.

  4. Long hours and a strong work ethic are keys to being a successful trader.

  5. While it is good to trade any market that will turn a profit, specializing in a market can lead to great success.

  6. The markets go down faster than they go up.

  7. If the market will not go down during bad news it will likely go higher.

  8. The stock market moves in patterns and in cycles. Past price patterns repeat themselves due to human emotions.

  9. Many times traders think a big position order size means that a whale knows something, most times they do not. 

  10. It is okay to skip a trade if you can’t get your entry price.
