Here's a little something to help you put the current economic situation into perspective:
- If you had purchased $1,000. of AIG stock one year ago, you would have $42 left. With Lehman Brothers, you would have $6.60 left. With Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, you would have less than $5.00 left.
BUT - if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling Refund, you would have $214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
It's called The 401-Keg.
