Re: Debt Jubilee

Do you see a Debt Jubilee anytime in the near future?

Re: Stock Selection

That's why I invested in the B class.

Who notes 11 years ago, it would have taken me years to save up $30k or one share of A class...

Re: Does HP ink evaporate?

I have an HP inkjet printer that seems to need new ink cartridges quite often. I don't use the printer very often. I print maybe 10 to 20 sheets per year, almost all of them just standard black lettering. But the printer always seems to be [more]

Re: 30 Second Overview of Munger's Daily Jou

As for Berkshire: given the company's size, and the inevitable changing of the guard, there is little chance of out-sized returns for stock holders going forward; history won't be repeated. Given this (almost) inevitability, it's [more]

Re: If inflation fears are the problem

Why aren't commodities gaining?

All markets are manipulated these days. An unmanipulated market is one where the law of supply and demand still holds.

Re: Another AMTRAK crash

As to why signals were shut down, you can speculate that old signals and PTC competed for communications capacity--which apparently was inadequate for both systems. And with the old system due to be abandoned, decision was made to shut down old [more]

Re: Another AMTRAK crash

JeanDavid, you know better than I do, but the books say that railroads adopted the CTC system to reduce manpower requirements. Before CTC, all interlockings, bridges, etc had to be manned 24 hrs per day, or at least while trains were running. CTC [more]

Re: Another AMTRAK crash

The 1920s CTC signal system should have detected the open turnout and set signals to indicate and slow/stop the oncoming train.
