How to Give Your Monthly Budget a $1000 Haircut

TULANE & COAL SE--My next door neighbor has a bumper sticker on her car that reads, "Oh no...not another learning experience!" Well, Hello 2009! None of us can see into the future, but this much seems certain: some of us will lose our jobs, our cars, our houses, even our partners. So let's confront the dismal economic uncertainties that lie in wait before we get bushwacked by reality.

Here is an economic reality: you have more… Continue

An Emailed 'Letter' from Gov. Bill Richardson

JUST-IN: a Letter from Bill Richardson...[January 5, 2009]

Subject: My Duty to America

Dear ____,

For nearly three decades, I have been honored to serve my state and our nation in Congress, at the U.N., as Secretary of Energy and as governor. So when the President-elect asked me to serve as Secretary of Commerce, I felt a duty to answer the call.

I felt that duty particularly because America is facing such… Continue

Richardson withdraws from Commerce Sec. Position

Gov. Richardson has withdrawn from his bid as Obama's Secretary of Commerce amid an FBI investigation.

I'm not sure how to feel about all this. The fact is that any politician who wants to make it to "the top" is going to have a lot of other people's money behind them. The hubaloo right now, of course, is anyone associated with Obama and where their money came from.

I just can't for the life of me say that I care,… Continue

Richardson’s staying, but will he step aside?

Gov. Bill Richardson has just announced that he’s withdrawn his name from consideration as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Commerce. The news is related to an ethics investigation that alleges that the Richardson camp swapped a $1.5 million state GRIP contract for $100,000. in contributions to the Guv’s PACs. (There’s no question that the contributions were made or that the contract was awarded; the investigation is focused on whether there was quid pro quo involved.) The contractor in the case is… Continue

Gaza & Al-Burque

On January 4--a freezing, blustery day in Albuquerque, dozens of demonstrators braved the elements for hours to deliver messages about recent Israeli actions in Gaza.

This struggle is too old and too complex to be captured simply, and it appears that atrocities are not the exclusive domain of any one group, but one consistent theme emerged among many people gathered: slaughter of civilians is not acceptable, whether it occurs by airstrike,… Continue

Cross posted to the Desert of the Real Economics.

The Author has not dispensed much investment advice recently. With the market turmoil he cannot recommend his day trading strategy to others for numerous reasons. Much of the Author’s methodology involved shorting the market in 2009 with inverse index ETFs such as QID. QID is a doubly-inverse fund

But funds can use leverage the other way. You can buy ETFs that are doubly- correlated to its underlying index. So… Continue

New Mexico Weaves

There was a New Mexico Weaves Art exhibit today at the Open Space Visitor Center so I made the short drive over and looked at some beautiful weavings. There was some cloth weavings but I liked the wool tapestries of

A Fhabulous First Friday!

Last night's First Friday show was a smashing, fhabulous success! Nick Harmon is an amazing artist, as well as a very cool dude. We were extremely pleased with the turnout for the opening and thrilled to be the first to show Nick's lighted piece "Resistance To What Is". It was entertaining to see people's reaction to the floor as they walked in the door. If you get out to see any shows this year, this one should be at the top of the list!

Thanks to Nick for the… Continue

Cross-posted to the Desert of the Real Economic Analysis.

Harry Truman reportedly described the difficulty of getting a straight answer from an economics with this joke.

Truman said "I would like to have a one-armed economist."

"Why" asks some nameless stooge.

"Because they always answer a question with 'on the one-hand, it is this. But on the other hand, it could be… Continue

It's a had, had, had world...

I got home from a meeting group on sustainable urban gardening practices and Transition Towns. I fed the cats, poured a beer and flipped on the news.

The first piece I saw was on a mixed race couple (a dark skinned man and a fair skinned woman) in England that had twin girls 7 years ago and one appears “white” and the other “black.” Crazy. They just had another set of twins, newborn boys, and one appears “white” and the other “black”.Super crazy. Even the parents are… Continue

ABQ in NBC Nightly News

We are used to seeing national news stories about Hot Air Balloons or even space alien/road runner Rose Bowl floats, but tonight an aerial view of downtown Albuquerque came across national tv screens because of the news story of our town's DOUBLING NUMBER OF BANK ROBBERIES. It is a scary trend and a bad sign of the times.

It does make one wonder is there a 'safer time' of day to go to your bank? If you are at the bank and it gets robbed what should you do to protect… Continue

Cross posted to the Desert of the Real Economic Analysis Blog.

The Author rarely gives advice in The Desert of the Real. No money in it, and it is often wrong. But with the economy in a powerdive, it might be time to share some thoughts.

The Author’s personal economy has been in crash mode for the last five years since he moved to New Mexico, the Land of Disenrichment. Except for nine-months in Indiana… Continue
