I got out of stocks a year ago...AGAINST the advice of my broker..he hates the fact that I got it right and he didn't.....all my assets are now in bonds...do I feel good??...forget it...bonds may not be much better if the banks topple like dominoes...

...I'm going to take it home and put it under my pillow...I'll probably have to wash it first tho...

...and then the'll throw me in jail for money laundering....

A 'cute' clip, but does it make me greedy?

I think the quote said "greed was good"

greed for money - no, that's not good........ but greed for what money can do can be good.

greed for love - yes and no; we all want love, but once we've found it being greedy for more could kill it.

and, lastly, greed for knowledge - yes; the 'greed' for knowledge is mostly good........apart from knowledge just for the sake of it when it becomes like greed for money with no good use to put it to.

good for you laddie . . .

however you are also very right if the banks ditch !
there seems to be hope though with central banks intervention.
