I’m always open to anything that sheds light on US media bias.

This flick specifically portrays U.S. media bias against Hugo Chavez, but in a broader way, any leader who happens to favor their people over U.S. corporate interests.

Dollars and Danger: Africa, the Final Investing Frontier

For those of you who missed it, Erin Burnett did a fascinating special on the investment and business opportunities in Africa. I liken it to the Wild Wild West on steroids.

Jim Rogers on the Global Economy [video]

Him Rogers was on bloomberg the other week, where he was asked about the state of the Global Economy. For those of you not familiar with Jim Rogers, he was the cofounder of the Quantum Fund along with George Soros (the man who made a billion in a day). There’s not too many people in the world who I’d trust more to predict the global economy than those two men.

Jim hasn’t really changed his tune much, he said he’s buying commodities (i.e. corn, soy, coffee, sugar, gold, copper, etc.) and he also predicts that there’s gonna be a world wide food shortage.

Marley Coffee to Compete with Starbucks?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is not a bad idea since almost every time I go in Starbucks they’re playing a Bob Marley song. Add to that the fact that Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee has repeatedly been rated the highest quality coffee in the world year after year.

Bob Marley’s son Rohan Marley is running the operations, and his motivations are to empower farmers in Jamaica, The Caribbean, and The World to grow organic coffee while still being able to earn a buck.

The company has been public now, and at 67 cents a share even I can afford to pick up a few hundred. The ticker symbol is MYCF and it trades on the OTC for now.
