This morning we wake up to so many global financial ‘TWIT’ stories, led by the fantastic investors and real estate developers in Abu Dhabi . Gobble Gobble Dhabi is just one of the global aftershocks in a wave of country specific bankruptcies we will face in the next 5-10 years.
Back here in the United States, we will never file bankruptcy and I am not sure what that means. I know I need to make a living and I know I love the markets, so I was lucky to get the Motley Fool’s latest offer in my inbox and share it with you.
Motley Fool has pretty much kicked ass since the early 90’s, carving themselves a nice piece of the financial media pie.
I am not sure I have the killer sales instict that they have in gathering subscribers.
I sign up for most financial website offerings just to see what is out there and the offers that are made.
Lucky me, I got my 20th offer from Motley Fool at the once in a lifetime 60 percent off yearly subscription that was meant to last just 48 hours three months ago……you with me?
Here is the teaser….
In less than 2 days…

How to make 14 times your money on a single stock!

For just the third time since the 1970s, the product everyone on the planet
— from caf sipping Parisians, to gadget toting Japanese youth, to cattle farmers in Argentina — buys from America is about to go through a radical transformation…
And there’s ONE SMALL COMPANY at the epicenter of this movement. But until now, unless you’re an insider… or a reader of a handful of obscure blogs… or a member of The Motley Fool’s flagship service, you probably haven’t heard the whole story…
That’s just the beginning. There are plenty more ‘please hurries’, ‘free gifts’ and ‘act now’s’…the equivalent of a 10 minute scroll down read.
Not much has changed in the financial publishing world I live in. Maybe that’s our fault. Obviously, this pitch works. It’s a number’s game.
Not much has changed at the Rating Agencie’s like Moody’s (downgrading Abu Dhabi’s debt AFTER it goes in default) or the Fed.
The only sure thing from the financial news I read every day is ‘Jon Stewart’ is leaving a lot of comedy on the table. I vow to pick some up by January.
