I concur with a statement Tate made earlier on a different thread. I don't get why people who aren't rich are Republican.

Like, I do, but I don't like the reason cause its extremely retarded.

Is it ok to keep my paltry savings in my orange account, or should I consider investing at this point if I want to have a better return?

depends on the yield you're currently receiving (i'm assuming "orange" means ING savings?) and also your risk tolerance. i guess it'd be a tradeoff between a stable growth percentage for your money now against the probability of losses you could incur in the hopes of a larger yield.

even though the market's gone relatively sideways for the last month or so, and will likely continue that pattern for the next few weeks - i'm not entirely convinced the worst is over. but regardless of that, a buying opportunity with the dow ~8500 is a good deal for the long haul. if your time horizon is decades rather than years, months, weeks, etc then it's probably something to look into.

saw this on digg today: it's the US map with each state labeled with a country it shares a similar GDP with - i.e. wisconsin's GDP equals that of ireland's, and so on.


and here's a number-based list of where each state would fall if US states were counted as individual countries for GDP purposes:

bump, because i refuse to let this linger beyond the first page. and also, interesting website i found when reading the freakonomics blog today:

http://truecostofcredit.com/

shows the various fees retailers pay on credit card purchases, tailored to the type of card you use.

i don't understand why this thread isn't jumping considering what's currently going on in the economy. I work in the finance industry, so i have plenty of opinions if anyone wants to chat economics/banking/bailout...
