The US & Chinese equity market outlook for late 2015 into 2016
In my last post on 18th August 2015 I forecast that the US and China were destined to enter recession. The reason for saying so is the subject of this article , however it needs to be acknowledged that the recession is destined to be 'short-lived', or simpl...

Political opportunities squandered in Japan - until now
Japan has over the last decade struggled to kick-start its
economy, though the current round of Abenomics is certainly the most persuasive reform effort yet. On the last attempt Japan fell back into a "triple-dip" recession (recording two quarters of negati...

Interesting the day after writing this artice, the Dow and Chinese Shanghai Composite Indices collapsed. The Dow fell to a low of 15,666pts before recovering to 16,285pts, after a 619pts rally (3.95%). This might give people confidence, however it is however a short term recovery. The Dow has upside to 17,000pts in the short term, however there is destined to be a string of bad news in the US, as we allude to in this blog post, that takes the Dow to 14,000pts. The Dow did not break out of a short term channel.

The Dow Jones is coming under pressure at a time when market pundits are being told to expect a market recovery. What's new? There have been numerous opportunities for equity markets to go into a tailspin, but on each occasion asset prices (equities, proper...

He was not "Trumped". There is no reason why the China should not make ties. The issue is whether it makes jet or power station turbines.

Critical analyst - investor - writer
Introduction
Andrew is a consummate thinker, investor, writer and exponent of all things rational.  He is a public exponent of 'critical thinking', writing on topical issues in the global media. Too much of what we read today is accepted uncritically because people have not been trained to think. Westerners are generally stronger in this regard than people from developing countries, however there is so much room for improvement.
The steps you can do to change this is:
1. Read material that challenges you.
2. Do things that challenge you.
3. Associate with people who challenge you.
4. Develop self management systems to perform these tasks 'systematically' every day of your life.
5. Expand those systems to incorporate other like-minded people in your 'sphere of influence'.

I quite like coming to Stables for a morning coffee as its quiet. Most people seem more interested in the food; but I just appreciate the morning peace.

This was a unique style of Indian food for me. I very much enjoyed the $15 lunch special; particularly because of the good service, great decor and original 'Punjabi' Indian style. The Arrowtown area is a popular tourist area for people visiting Queenstown. Its got great walks and natural beauty along the Arrow River.
