But I’d suggest to him that you don’t have to go as far as the Amazon jungle to find kids who are 1000 miles away from civilization. Try half the USA with families who still have no access to broadband, DSL or even wireless, and this when they may only live ten or fifteen miles from an urban area! And pay that universal service fee on their landlines, duh… So personally and for the public good, I’d invest the money in a campaign to finish wiring the country. Some of us in the sticks are ready to roll out the fiber ourselves. “Will string cable for food?” Why not?!

I’d certainly stay away from any American defense-related industries, since the Administration seems bent on exposing the throats and breasts of Americans to the barbarians at their gates.

Alternative energy. Wind, solar. Energy costs over the long term will go up 300%+ and those who are prepared will look like genius economists.

I’m a gambler like that.If you had a million bucks, you could buy approximately 140,000 shares of their stock. Their dividend has been steadily at $0.35 or higher per share. So my 140k shares net me a quarterly income of $49,000… or nearly 200k a year.Rockin’.

We have tons of data easily available through the internet. We will move to a new phase, analysing that data to discover patterns in it so that we can benefit from them. For instance, looking at GPS data of phone locations allows us to know in real-time how fast traffick is moving. More and more institutions trade the marked using algorithms. This makes stock prices go up and down based on patterns. Any company or person working on technical analysis and with a proven record of pattern detection would be a good investment.
