The World is Going Crazy, How To Profit From It.

Hi guys! I am sitting in our standard hotel room banging away at my computer and I simply love it! Everything I need is here! We are receiving many compliments for our hotel concept and we invite you to come experience us. That did not come out too right but what the heck.

The world is going crazy with all the central bankers printing money like no business. The prescription for all central bankers is to lower interest rates after Abenomics took form. Prime Minister Abe is trying to grow the Japanese economy by massive fiscal stimulus add the Yen easing and it has stoked one of the biggest rallies in the Japanese stock market. The world seems to be a perfect place with low interest rates and low inflation. If you ask me we are setting ourselves up.

Something eventually has to give. All that money being printed is being put into the ‘latest’ investment trend. These hot money will chase assets like nobody’s business. Hong Kong and Singapore real estate were obvious targets, now there are investors targeting Japan and the European economies still in doldrums. The point is asset inflation will have to result in higher consumer prices eventually. There is money to be made by existing owners of assets. Make sure whatever you buy are either distressed assets or stuff that you can dispose quickly off once central bankers start tightening.

Personally, I am still trying to recover from my earlier trauma. I just wish for everyone peace to pursue what we want in life. In my case, I really hope to chill out for sometime. There is no point in antagonizing anyone in life and as what Gandhi says, “ An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”.

May God showers his blessings on you, and till the next entry, take care and God Bless!

Your Friend,
