    It doesn't matter if I agree or not,BUT my view is that it is something that an investor should seriously consider when deciding when,what or where to invest.
    My view is what we see in our news about USA now is mostly click bait.
    What investors need to remember is the US $ is the reserve currency,that they will never default on their debt.
    Their trick is to keep borrowing in their own currency,they can just keep printing more

    It would appear so. Based on the strength of fed support has the low been set ?

    If you where a trader in shares you might worry about it if you couldn't take a potential drop of 50%
    On the other hand if you are an investor,can take a 50% drop without worrying,over the long term it is highly likely that an investment now in the share market would be better than a deposit in a bank(which is also not without risk)

    Have not seen the full Berkshire session but even with COVID19, the dynamics have not changed in America. What many onlookers (those living outside the US) don't understand is the US is not a socialist nations and their model or system was never intended to be a socialist model. They're a capitalistic nations that allocations the resources in the most efficient manner. You have a market that demands things such as pro athletes that become ultra high net worth overnight because of their talent - yet 99.99% that try to make it that big are left with mediocre pay. Same goes with Hollywood actors.

    Certainly not a time I would look to invest anywhere else.

    I know this post has been around for awhile but it got me thinking:
    My thoughts on where to from here. Not so much individual companies but more areas with future potential.

    Companies that offer better clean energy solutions
    genomics
    autonomous vehicles
    + if your into it a small amount in bitcoin as a hedge

    Thats my current "where to from here"
