A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

The New $100 note

I watch this video, and think, "Wow. Impressive (product)!"

As the page states, Know Its Features. Know It's Real. But even apart from that, I appreciate that, finally, the US joins the rest of the world with a colorful, even pretty, bill of currency. I mean, c'mon, the same drab green for all denotations?

And yet this is perhaps the only time I perceive a product that is well-designed, even well-built, that I hope and pray is not manufactured ad infinitum. An objective our government seems hell-bent to pursue with devotion.
