Default Re: Economic Aftermath of Katrina

I suppose you're right, but any investment opportunity requires me to deal with my "fraternal enemies", who have the ability to sabotage the enterprise and ruin me, so I usually stick to what I can figure out myself.
It's terrible how negative and cutthroat investing has become. I remember when a company's stock price would go up because it was hiring more people and producing more. Now stocks soar when companies "downsize". Investors lick their chops and rush like hogs to the trough whenever a disaster occurs to profit from it.
Now misery makes money. Even the small investor knows it. We bet against ourselves, against humanity, selling our souls on the cheap.
