More Economic Insight

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original grand.

With WorldCom, less than $5.00.

Delta Air Lines...$49.00.


BUT, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling, you would have made $214.00.

So, based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

Is that figure based on the bottle deposit in your state, or mine? LOL We have a 10 cent bottle deposit in Michigan - remember the Seinfeld episode where Kramer and Newman drove the bottles to Saginaw? :D

That reminds me, I must take my cans to the store!!

It's a shame you can't by $200 of cans and get $1000 of beer!
