13 thoughts on “How good (bad?) is the Singapore economy now? – Global Perspectives (Part 2)

  1. Hi Rolf,
    You have made perfect use of your day off by alerting us to another frank perspective on the global economy.
    I believe we might enter uncharted territory soon with our captain-less ship. We have to be prepared for rough seas ahead. But still not rough enough to stop the occasional Black Swans from paddling across our path.
    Conscious awareness of the risks plus a prepared contingency plan might make all the difference to our financials in the near future.

    1. Hi Andy,

      Thanks. A ship without a captain is not good, a ship with many captains sometimes can be even worst! haha..

      Maybe I should selfishly say, it has nothing to do with alerting others, but just reinforcing my own thoughts via writing.

      I can see u r all prepared to sail into the unchartered waters!

  2. Rolf,

    Macro top down 😉

    May not appeal to those who prefer bottom-up stock specifics; but jolly good stuffs!

    1. Hi Jared,

      Macro top down is much simpler compared to bottom up – which like "some uncle" said it's like finding needle in the haystack!

      I prefer the easier way out! Lol. Maybe also depends of situation. When the sea is calm, it makes more sense to bottom up, when the sea is gg to be rough (?), maybe top down is better?

      How about u? Top down or bottom up?

  3. Hi..what should we do in such cases?

    Where should we put our money? Where to invest? Stock properties or bonds?

    1. Hi Babe,

      U gonna be disappointed w my answer! I am really not in a position to give any advice to anyone except myself. However it really depends on ur approach "top down" or "bottom up".

      Anyway, both strategies work if employ correctly. Once u did ur homework, you need to be a strong believer of ur strategy n DO NOT deviate!

      For top down, understand how to create a portfolio that is mixture of stocks, bonds, precious metals, cash, n properties that can weather all situation! Understand the word "Patience & Pounce!"

      For bottom up, carry on investing on a regular basis irregardless of how the world is. Just find the best company at the right price that will perform over time.

      The solution : Be a confident paranoid! Prepare for the worst and yet, knows what to do if the worst arrive!
