Author: Edward J. Cousin
There's always gotta be a blabbermouth and for my money, Edward Cousin fits the bill, since his book
lays out my personal line on investing. I'm therefore biased in favor of his belief that money supply not
only counts, it's virtually all that can be relied (counted?) upon.
Cousin also points out that the business cycle is probably the one source of price fluctuation we can count
on for the foreseeable future and thus the likely source of continued trading profits.
Not only that, Cousin argues that futures are an excellent, perhaps the best, vehicle to exploit the cycles
inherent in monetary policy. This flies in the face of accepted wisdom, which features stocks, bonds, real
estate and savings accounts. For my money — and Cousin's—futures are great for participating reliably
in the business cycle, offering leverage and providing instant liquidity. Nothing else comes close.
