There’s Never Been a Better Time to Make Money
What’s everybody griping about?
We’d say Paul Tudor Jones knows a thing or two about investing. He’s a billionaire… a hedge fund manager… and quite the philanthropist.
But he said something this week that made the money press scratch its collective head.
It wasn’t sure how to spin such grandiose words.
“It’s literally the most conducive environment for economic growth and strength that I’ve ever seen,” he said to a crowd of investors.
That’s good news, right?
That’s what we want out of our economy… an easy way to make money and keep it, correct?
The evidence is surely in Jones’ favor. Stocks are at all-time highs. The American economy is outshining its international counterparts. And investors are getting rich.
Ahhhh… there’s the rub.
That’s why the press covered the story – to pick on those rich bastards.
All this investment success is dividing the nation, the reporters report.
It’s the rich vs. the poor… and the rich, of course, are winning.
It’s silly logic – exactly the sort of thing we’d expect from a news system that seems more wont to drive votes than to share the truth. (We found it quite ironic that an ad for the state lottery was running at the top of an article bad-mouthing the rich for getting richer. Sad.)
We shouldn’t listen to the words of men like Tudor and poke a finger into the chest of the “greedy” investors that have managed to make a buck off the market.
No way… we should take his words and celebrate the folks who risked their money to better their future.
We should celebrate – and join – the folks who care enough about their own self-preservation to ensure their future is brighter than their past.
What Tudor said shouldn’t be considered a threat to the nation’s future. It should be viewed as a great victory.
The Voice of Freedom
Our Founding Fathers would be proud of Tudor’s words. They worked hard to build a nation that could spread such prosperity so wide and so far.
It reminds us of famed words from Abe Lincoln… a man who surely thought long and hard about the disparities between the rich and the poor.
“Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; is a positive good in the world,” he said during a speech in 1864. “That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and, hence, is just encouragement to industry and enterprise.
“Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.”
It’s words like those that make us smile when we open our mailbag and see so many readers asking how to make their first trade.
Instead of whining that others have and they don’t… they’re taking action.
They aren’t joining the protestors in the streets. They’re not begging the government for another handout. And they’re not putting their hands in the air and resigning themselves to what they’ve got.
They’re taking action.
We praise them for it.
If we had to add a fourth dimension to our beloved Triad, we’d add “Action” to our pursuit of Liberty, Know-How and Connections.
After all, we’ll never obtain any of them without action.
The way we see it is Americans can play the odds with the state-run lottery… they can moan and whine… and they can pretend the person begging for their vote will make them happy.
But they won’t get anywhere.
The government never made anybody rich… but the government.
The key to getting rich – and living a life of true Liberty – is to take action.
Paul Tudor Jones is right.
It’s never been a better time to make some money in the stock market.
We beg you to take advantage of it.
