Stupid EconomicsMore Chaos to come that is for sure.  In my previous post, I talked about how to come out ahead of the stupidity in DC.  Most of them are in denial and are not taking any of the blame for the Downgrade of the US Debt for the first time in History.

They are spending more than they take in and no matter how many times they say otherwise, the party is over. It is not about raising taxes and killing off even more jobs, it has to come from not spending like a drunken sailor and not pushing radical and stupid agendas like Global Warming.  You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.

OK, well don’t expect them to get un-stupid anytime soon. What they have is terminal and can only be changed with an election.

But, here again, you can profit from it. If you purchased puts on the S&P in April like I discussed you are one happy clam! We could see the DOW fall back down through 10,000.  Although at the end of the day, it really does not matter to most people.

What else can we do knowing that the economy is going to get worse here?

Well, you need to ask yourself when times get tougher, what is it that people are going to buy and what are they going to get rid of and we need to think counter-intuitively here.

You are going to have to entertain them or help them make or save more money.  If you can do something that falls in one of these three categories you will be fine.

So, look at what product of service you can do that can emphasize these things and then prove in no uncertain terms that you can do it and you will be well on your way.

And don’t forget to smile.  Stupid usually does not last forever and you might as well smile.  You can get through this.
