If I had more money I would.

I'm thinking of just buying a few shares and seeing what happens.

How does gaining tons of money only to subsequently lose tons of money reduce volatility? That is volatility.
Except that's not how hedging works. You're not just throwing money into investments. You're investing on both sides of the market simultaneously (the classic example is oil and corn/ethanol), so when one investment gains value, the other is likely to lose a somewhat similar balance. Net to the two together and you have a much smoother profit line than if you were to invest all of the money in oil, where you'd be over-exposed to the whims of an unpredictable short-term market.

Capitalism doesn't work, socialism is the answer. It is pointless to argue against my opinion, because my opinion is superior.

The bad economic news just keeps on coming.
Quote:
The Commerce Department said on Monday orders for manufactured goods dropped 0.6 percent during the month. The government also revised its estimate for new orders in March to show a steeper decline.

Economists had forecast orders rising 0.2 percent in April.

I don't know if this was posted already, but an interesting read from Krugman

Reagan was a Keynesian

Quote:
As many economists have pointed out, America is currently suffering from a classic case of debt deflation: all across the economy people are trying to pay down debt by slashing spending, but, in so doing, they are causing a depression that makes their debt problems even worse. This is exactly the situation in which government spending should temporarily rise to offset the slump in private spending and give the private sector time to repair its finances. Yet that’s not happening.

I had to take a couple. I was in business school but economics was considered part of my liberal arts core curriculum, which didn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

Yeah I would assume your school is following the same logic (whatever that logic is).
