    International Ramifications of Financial Planning

    Global trade with national currencies is a mug’s game. Guess who broke the Bretton-Woods system? Even Nixon votaries will agree that the dollar reserves with Middle East Sheikhs and with Beijing threaten the American way of life nearly as much as terrorism. The World Trade Organization persists with endless confabulation, while the dollar slips from its vantage position by the day. The person who takes the White House in the 2008 election must commit to put US trade balances in order. The appreciation of the Euro is a matter of concern on this side of the Atlantic, but the priority should be to control influences on our financial planning from quarters inimical to our form of governance.

  • Invaluable Stock Holding Rights (Part 1) - 22 January 2008
  • Skilled and experienced professionals do not use scare cash to repurchase stocks! The motives for delisting must reside in the belief that stocks have values that executives and owners wish to hide from others. Never believe the baloney that someone you neither love not perhaps even know, will buy stocks from you in order to make losses!

    It is never easy to glean the individual and true opinions of regulators, but we can gain some glimpses by studying their scholarly presentations at selected events. The best in the business are concerned about the negative effects of delisting, and these worries are hardly limited to getting fair compensation in the exit stock price! A review of committees that have deliberated on the delisting phenomenon will show that they are simply get-togethers of big business and government bureaucrats. Even the most innocuous measures to protect stock investors with minority holdings are met with dissenting expressions by representatives of industries.

  • Farming as a Path to Financial Planning (Part 1) - 21 January 2008
  • The days of living exclusively off pensions are numbered. Longevity trends, rising social security costs, and the specter of inflation, combine to mean that retirement in the conventional sense of the term is likely to be progressively pushed beyond 65, rather than being brought forward. Stock investment is a successful and challenging form of financial planning, but many people would enjoy making livings from farming activities. These two lines of revenue generation need no longer be mutually exclusive, given the facilities of the Internet and online stock trading. Economies moved away from agriculture to industries and services during the past 200 years, but it appears that growing crops and rearing animals have acquired new values of late.

  • Farming as a Path to Financial Planning (Part 1)

    Farming is an inherited vocation in many parts of the world, but it need not be so in the United States. Anyone may grow crops, or manage farms on owned or rented land. You can do any of this on a small patch of land, or have stocks in plantations that stretch further than the eye can see! Grains, fruits, flowers, raw material for clothing, and all colors and textures of meat and other dairy products, are amongst the virtually unending choices of what you may grow.

  • Brazil Revisited as a Top Stock Investment Destination (Part 1) - 18 January 2008
  • International stock investment is the Mantra of financial planning today. Private equity and large banks have made more money in emerging markets than in their home bases during the recent past. It is time for retail stock investors to follow, though this is a major challenge for the traditional stock market circuit. The classic stock exchange structure has been oriented towards domestic and national stock investors, yielding space gradually to foreign financial institutions and to sources of private equity. This is set to change, with stock investing taking international hues in the modern era.

    European Support for Brazilian Stocks

    Historical links between modern Brazil and Europe are well established facts, but Spain and Portugal have been special in their financial investments and infrastructural support for the Brazilian economy and the stock market in local times. Therefore, the global appreciation of the Euro has important long term implications for Brazil’s stock exchange development. The benefits are mutual since the European Union can take heart from the fact that Brazil is now the 11th largest economy in the world, the third biggest west of Greenwich, besides the leader of all South America. The country’s real is also an appropriate and reliable currency for stock investment from other parts of the world.
