Guess I should post my latest conspiracy theory…

It occured to me this morning that three interesting financial news reports have converged this summer:

  1. Someone…but obviously someone VERY wealthy…left their ATM receipt behind, revealing their almost 100-million-dollar cash reserve
  2. For the first time in history, Standard and Poor’s downgraded the USA…which most likely contributed to two-year lowball on Fed rates
  3. Following this latest shock to the financial system, the stock market faced the most volatile one-week period in its history

The author of the ATM receipt story made the (historically ironic) comment of “Anyone with that amount of cash would know that keeping $100 million in a savings account isn’t the wisest investment move.”


Well, seems that the Hamptons Moneybags might have guessed the right course for this historic summer….

    Actually, I would say that keeping the money in savings is the best of the bad options. Stocks are a bigger gambel, and for the guy to loose his savings where they are, it would take a complete loss and shut down of the entire banking system. He may not be making money, but baring disaster, he wont loose it as well.

    Personally I would invest in firearms. Have practical uses, and make great currency if the world goes to manure.

      He won’t lose SOME of it…as the first article points out, savings are only insured to $250,000…I’m just surprised s/he doesn’t have it in more than one account!

      And yes, firearms seem to be a good investment…but their aren’t any commercials for them like for gold!

      • Stephen Says:

        If the banks were to crash to where he lost the millions, I doubt there would be anything/anyone to pay the 250k…nor at that point would 250k be worth anything either at that point.

        And there are not commercials for guns because “some” in this country have a problem with that…lol…Shoot, they have a problem with the gold commercials because they think they are “brainwashing” people to take money out of the economy and horde it all into selfish gold. lol…Plus it is a lot harder to redistribute someone’s wealth if they have it in hard gold bullion rather than electronic money. But I degress as now I am getting into a conspiratorial rant. 😀
