It was not too long ago that I did not have any money to lose, so I guess I should count myself lucky.

I'm telling my wife that I'm hoarding bicycles to use as trade items when all of the world currencies collapse.

No, it wasn't money, it was just electrons in cyberspace.

Those are money now. Didn't you hear that we are on the electron standard now? Much more of those around then there are ounces of gold or silver.

good luck. it could be a very long time before that happens. remember that we're coming off essentially two raging bull markets - the big one since the 80's and the smaller one the past 5 years. stocks are only cheap if you compare them to the historically high prices we've grown used to.

my fear is that we'll re-enact the mid 60s to the early 80s where the market basically did nothing - just languished in limbo for some 15 years. i hope i'm wrong.

Money is a social construct, and doesn't exist.
