Well, hello there How was your summer? I’m back, and with a juicy podcast.
Forbes just released their list of America’s richest people. I examined the ones who are self-made, talked to wealthy individuals that I know, and found one habit that all of these people have in common.
I share that habit with you in this podcast, and also introduce new segments about the stock market, Washington politics, a story about a prominent political figure that may make you gag, and stories to inspire you to become wealthy yourself.
The Wall Street Geek is hosted by financial expert Michelle Price, Managing Pricipal of fee only financial advisor Price Capital LLC in NYC and the author of “How to Buy Stocks Online” (available at Amazon).
In last week’s podcast, I explained how the “B”, “I”, and “C” in BRICS appear to be contenders for providing future growth opportunities to investors.
South Africa joined the “BRICS” community in 2005. Yet, its performance is hardly representative of Africa.
What about the other countries in Africa? Should more than one African country been added to the “BRICS” acronym? Quoting Seinfeld, what’s the deal with Africa?
In last week’s podcast, I questioned if the Eurozone had the next big investment opportunities. In the near term…not really.
So the next natural place to look is in Emerging Markets. In particular, the BRICs: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
Are these countries living up to the pomp and circumstance that started in 2001 by Goldman Sachs analyst Jim O’Neill? Or, is “BRICS” turning out to be just a catchy acronym that lost popularity to the next shiny new investment idea on the scene?
Can we talk?
