the bernanke bubble

great wsj on how the stock market ‘rally’ of the past 6 months is nothing more than a massive money bubble inflating stocks & commodities.

excerpt:

“In mid-May, Mr. Bernanke’s outlook seemed to change. Maybe he didn’t approve of the sharp housing rebound — like we need more houses! Maybe he saw inflation in commodity prices — oil popping to $72 from $35. Or, more likely, he finally realized that he was the market and took his foot off the money accelerator, as evidenced in the contracting monetary base (see nearby chart). Sure enough, things rolled over — the market dropped 7.5% from its peak, oil prices dropped almost 17%, and even gold has lost some of its luster. But in July, the Fed started buying again and the market rallied.”

jim rogers: aka ron paul with better answers…

jim rogers does a long interview explaining his ‘ron paulesque’ philosophy on how to profit/hedge the coming dollar inflation + the issues with paulson/bernanke’s plan. he says farming will be the new banking, and that buying commodity/agriculture stocks/funds is the way to profit when the inflation wave hits in 12 – 18 months.

he’s been 100% right so far on how bubble collapse would play out so I’m now looking into / learning how to¬†buy commodities. roger’s commodity index funds are here:

**note – commodities crashed this month so investing in commodities is a 12 – 18 month commitment.
