Hi Ken

So, as our influence lessens and our financial fortunes worsen as our reduction of manufacturing jobs leave us with less and less to sell to the rest of the world, where do we invest our $$$ ????

A couple of things....I'm not sure who you mean by "our $$$"? One way I read it, you could mean the US. Another you could mean the US investors.

If you meant the US....then we have no dollars (really) to invest! We are spending not saving. Running deficits not surpluses.

If you meant the US investor, invest in the same places that have always made sense: those industries and businesses where there is a good business model, strong profitability, good business prospects going forward and honest management.

The second thing is the phrase "our influence lessens".....I don't see that with our armies occupying two countries in the middle east and two more still considered part of the "Axis of Evil". Being the most consumptive nation is not without its influence as well.

However, the currency by which the consumption is paid for.......that may be quite the story unfolding....

You take care as well!
