I just talked to a good friend of mine. He's been in the business of jewelry repair for many years and has done well. Now, though, he's not repairing jewelry...instead, he's aggressively buying gold. He calls it tying into the "misery factor." Consequently, he's still doing very well.
Well, I was wondering....beyond the "misery factor", what, if any, do you think, are the pluses that will come out of this global financial meltdown? Out of all these rotten lemons that keep rising to the surface and rolling out from under the rocks... are there any lemons that we can manage to make into some good lemonade?
