Economy with a Fever/John MauldinGetting a fever is no fun. You likely get chills, you sweat, and you’re just generally uncomfortable. You get tired easily and need to rest. But here’s the weird part: Fever isn’t the real problem. It’s a symptom of something else. You must treat whatever that is to relieve the fever.”

Is It Time For Market Timing?/Full Time Finance  “The market have been very jittery lately. At one point in the month of January the market was up over 4% in a matter of days. Over the last 2 -3 months it has dropped about 10% from that point. It’s enough to make anyone jittery about stock market investing, but does that mean we should start Market Timing and pull out?”

  1. Steve, the article GoRving is fun. Traveling across the 48 states is a big adventure. Good information for those who love road travels.

    About the Canadian household debts, US has the similar problem. Interest rate has been kept low for a decade. When the rate goes up, the debt could become a bigger burden for families.

    • Hi Helen,
      I like RVing, and when I retire would like to travel north America so those articles are always interesting to me.
      I agree the amount of debt around the world is mind blowing. I can’t see it ending well.
      Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks Steve. I liked the article on “Canadian Households Owe $2 Trillion/Canadian Press “. Interesting and scary. I wonder if we will get over cheap credit.

    • Thanks DG
      It is scary, I don’t think it will end well without a bit of pain. But so far everything has been doing good. I am allergic to debt so I will be okay as long as the economy doesn’t tank.
