First Bitcoin, then Libra: Why Nation States are Petrified

A few months ago I was on the Lite Show (Litecoin) podcast, we got to talking about Facebook’s forthcoming crypto currency, which hadn’t been named yet. I mused then that it would totally suck for the entire crypto-currency space to have come this far with Bitcoin, et al only to have Facebook swoop in and […]

FOMO Unbound! Did we just miss the Bitcoin bottom?

I meant to write this back around May 7th or so, after I listened to “What Bitcoin Did #104” with Tuur Demester and then read his “Bitcoin in Heavy Accumulation” paper. The title of my post was supposed to be “Is Bitcoin finally putting in a bottom?” Real life got in the way of my writing, […]

Remembering The Privateer

The Privateer was “The Private Market Letter for the Individual Capitalist”. I remember I started subscribing to it in 2002 or 2003, and continued with it right up until the end, when the Australian Bill Buckler decided to stop publishing it in 2013.

Wait, no, that’s The Fed, along with ensuring higher stock markets. GuerrillaCap’s core mission was supposed to be talking about how small and independent businesses can compete with megacorps. The other night I was […]

The Disturbing Rise of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT)

( Medium) Lately, we’ve suddenly been hearing a lot about Modern Monetary Theory (“MMT”) in the mainstream media. It could be that with the election of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez to congress, MMT’s star will rise with hers as she is reportedly an adherent and possibly views MMT as a means to fund her Green New Deal.

Shut Up and Play Yer Cards

A few months ago I had formed a useful metaphor about the underlying mechanisms at play when those concerned with social justice want to improve things for the greater good. This is nothing new, Bill Bonner & Lila Rajiva wrote an entire book on this called Mobs, Markets & Messiah’s wherein they examined the trail […]

Patient Capital: Pot stocks are a fad

Received the latest Patient Capital letter this week. This is a boutique Toronto-based value fund run by Vito Maida. One of the few capital managers that didn’t get completely mauled in the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. In itself, that’s instructive: Maida’s investing career spans over 40 years, he started Patient Capital in 2000 so he’s […]
