By Richard Quinn May 14, 2019
We can’t tell the difference between needs and wants and are unable to delay gratification
From the lofty perch of old age, and after a lifetime of thrift, I declare that I am qualified to comment on how not to waste money.
We’ve all heard the reports: Most Americans live paycheck to paycheck, a large number can’t come up with $400 for an emergency, and there’s no money to save for retirement and other goals.

Sam Oliver: What a day of headlines. "Get out of the Market Now." "265 Billion US Stocks dumped this past year." "Global Trade Collapsing to Depression Levels." "Volumes or money flow is very low." "Central Banks and traders are buying gold at a record pace."
In fact, more gold bought than the last 6 years combined. These are just some of the headlines today. Yesterday, remember when I shared with you traders had turned to gold and went "long" on their buying of stocks?
I see the gold report came out today. Record levels of buying gold again. No wonder we are seeing articles of doom and gloom coming down the pike today. All this indicated was a short term fall in the making. And today, their stories were written. But, this is not as bad as it seems.
Take another look at what was shared yesterday. The traders went "long." This means they believe in the future of our financial system, but they do not have any confidence in the short term. Do the traders know something?
Of course they do, it is simply history repeating itself.
