Dr. Marc Faber, the investment guru, concluded his monthly bulletin (June 2008) with the following comments. I thought of posting this on the blog; it just sounded funny yet to think about!
“The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate.
If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China.
If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs.
If we buy a computer, it will go to India.
If we purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala.
If we purchase a good car, it will go to Germany.
If we purchase useless crap, it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.
The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in the US.
I’ve been doing my part…..”
‘Have you been doing your part?’ May be a something to think about!
