Well, for starters......this site exists for anyone who is interested in learning. Furthermore, no matter what your economic and behavioral beliefs are........ we link you to great information to help you the reader understand what is going on in the micro and macro perspective.

Simple. By reading the same information and inter-bank communications they do so you can use it to your advantage. For this, the dog wants you the reader to read up on GAME THEORY(Wiki). Also, read here on GAME THEORY2 (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Knowledge is power (Knowing the rules of the game). Executing financial maneuvers faster and better than the next guy will make you a winner of the game (Mastering the game).

A moment of pause for 9/11.

The dog would like everyone to take a moment of pause for 9/11. This day is special to the dog as I was in Washington D.C. at that time in the NAVY when those tragic events unfolded. My thoughts and prayers go out............

Thanks to everyone for visiting the site. Feel free to leave thoughts in the comment section.
