Most people in the region have gone mad for months to look for their fortune in the stock market. This reminds me the case for property market before 1997. Believe it or not, I am “unluckily” among the few exceptions. I must confess that part of the reason for not being on the boat is lack of money. As a Buddhist, I live with the rule of “cause-and-effect.” So, even when I have something to spare, I won’t find myself as enthusiastic as other people do.
Stock market provides us essentially a zero-sum game platform. (Yes, I agree that this is not quite exactly the picture, but I mean it is essentially the case.) The only takers will be the agents. All other players are either winner or loser at one time or another. I personally reckon stock market as the place where we get our long overdue debts settled!
Having that said, I still have to deal with my mundane life of eating and sleeping, and, of course, ways to save money. Fool.co.uk is an interesting website that provides me other knowledge of the world beyond ours. A couple of weeks earlier, they wrote about 76 foolish ways to save money. Funny and interesting.
