this is from a newsletter that I receive from Susan Rubin:
If you had purchased $1000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you will have $49.00 today.
If you had purchased $1000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you will have $33.00 today.
But—- if you had purchased $1000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you will have received $214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle.
I’m not a big beer drinker, so this investment plan wouldn’t work well for me. Here’s a strategy that I like better than the beer. For example, if you purchased just $2 worth of tomato plants, your yield would be over $100 worth of fresh organically grown food that has no carbon footprint. While tending to your tomatoes, you’ll also benefit from additional Vitamin D in the form of sunshine, thereby reducing your risk of both cancer and osteoporosis. Saving you costly medical bills.
Want to make an investment that pays higher return than any Wall Street stock? Invest in seeds and grow some food. It’s easier than you think. Community gardens are springing up everywhere. Containers like the Earth Box can easily work on a deck. Teich Garden Systems can help you to create a state of the art animal resistant garden for your yard or school.
