    Brad @ wef Davos panel discussion

    Brad is like the Steven Jobs and Swartz is like the bill gates. Jobs wasn't really a tech savy he just knew the idea and how to get the engineers to get it done
  4. My question to you is how long have you been in this crypto market?

    Xrp will remain this price even with all the good news, the only way it will go up is with clarity of the regulations and SEC backing down.

    This is well known fact, lol if you do not know about the geopolitics of the middle east then you won't know The oil price I know from late 70s was above $25. but yes from the 50s to the 70s it wasn't all I know the contracts were sign. I have seen the video of the Shah making the speech in 1977 about not extending the oil contract and that US needs to pay market price. Also Valery Giscard d'Estaing acknowledge it in his biography, he didn't go as far as the oil contracts but called Carter a ******* for backstabbing the Shah. Maybe you have no clue what was happening between the US and Iran but you can read below: There are more than just this but I will leave it at that. And yes the US went to the middle east screwed it up and backstabbed one of its strongest ally the Shah all for oil. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jun/10/ayatollah-khomeini-jimmy-carter-administration-iran-revolution

    It has always been about oil In 1953 Iran nationalized its oil from the British and the US and Britain were not happy about it, so the Shah of Iran agreed to a 25 year contract so that the US and Britain can buy oil at $5 per barrel and they in return went and sold it to the markets at $25 to $30. Everything was great in the middle east until 1977 when the Shah in an interview said that he will not be extending the 25 year old contract once it expires in 1979 hence the year of the islamic revolution in Iran. So over night the US and the UK started their propaganda that the Shah was a dictator and they started throwing in human rights violation by the Shah in Iran. At the same time Khomeni in France started secret communication with the Carter administration and he asked Carter if he helped him gain control of Iran that he would have the contract signed for another 25 years of free oil, but what Khomeni was really doing was using Carter to gain control of Iran and had no intentions to have any contracts signed. Bottomline, the US (CIA) backstabbed the Shah of Iran and started supporting Khomeni and his revolution all for OIL and today look what we have in the middle east...

    The middle east is a big screw up now because of the US getting involved and screwing with the other countries there and now with the US supporting the Saudis, the US has made a few more enemies

    What you posted is as ignorant as it can get. You must be joking saying if the US stops all fundings and aid to every country on earth. lol US is crumbling from within, the country is so divided and lets not forget if China wants to it can make the US bankrupt.

    True that but then again you don't want to deal with the annoying tenants either. My property managers were good but then eventually they became lazy and would hire the first contractor they find without even getting a 2nd quote. I told them I will need to see at least 3 estimates before any work is approved. My best friend got into flipping 15 years ago and today he doesn't work much, has a lambo and 7 porsche and I realized I should have taken his route, bottomline is if you want instant cash profits then flipping is the way to go, rental is just to have a passive income which can be more or less depending on the homes and what fixes they need yearly..

    I did have several rentals but even with 8% you still have to look at the surprise costs and taxes. I eventually sold most of them and now just buy homes in prime areas rehab and sell and I make around 25 to 30% on each home but the average is usually around 23%. The thing is you once you made $200K then your lifestyle changes and then you have to keep up with the expenses then you will see that 200K is not enough and then you will want to make more.

    I know people like him, they invested their whole life savings and now are down 80% and they are bitter and so they do not have any expectations other than hope they get their 90K back. Remember always invest what you can afford to lose :-)

    I'm actually pretty well off for my age. Have 4 homes all paid off and they are in prime areas plus I do flips which makes me well over 400K a year. Made my $$$$ mostly in the mid 90s with the dot.com stocks and now I'm betting big on crypto. your 92K isn't much and just to make you feel better I did lose 300K with Lucent in the 90s but then again I made a whole lot more with Amzn and Google. :-))
