  1. Thanks Andrew, great article, and a very accurate description of the current landscape of the investment world, at least in my opinion, and one that presents many problems investors face when trying to allocate capital wisely, it’s really more about guessing whether or not your favoured investments will be favoured by the centrally planned economies of the world.
    For example, Jim Rogers recently said that he favoured sugar as an investment due to its beaten down market price that is currently below the cost of production for even the most efficient producers, but in today’s reality, the future of the sugar market has little to do with economics and more to do with the third world government subsidies for production of sugar.
    It’s a similar story with many products, whether it’s government subsities or other factors such as tariffs or regulations etc, that can be changed overnight and have major impacts on your investments.the markets are not really markets.
