(B)(N) The Personal 12% Bond

November 5, 2016

Rich is Good

Drama. The NASDAQ has become our personal ATM machine and we’re taking about 12% per year from it to pay our bills and also leaving another 15% or so for growth and to pay even more bills in the future and it’s doubled our money in less than five years.

The chart below tells the story: the faded blue area shows how much money we took out of the investment and spent and we’re able to take out more money every year at 12% and not even think about it; the blue line at the bottom shows how much cash we have right now for further investment and the green line at the top shows our net worth, all of which we can get tomorrow if we need it.


Exhibit 1: The Personal 12% Bond

The Personal 12% Bond (The Company)

Our accountant said that Exhibit 1 above couldn’t be done – there isn’t anything in “market theory” that suggests that it could be done and everything and legions of financial planners and actuaries who swear that it can’t be done – so we showed her the 15% bond, the 20% bond, and the 30% bond in the same market and using exactly the same methods, and she sold her house and bought the 30% bond and is now retired in Costa Rica which just shows how dangerous a little knowledge can be; please see Exhibit 2 below for more details and, depending on your budget, click on them to make them larger as required.

Of course, a lot of people think that it’s sinful, or risky, to earn money in the stock market and that they should work for an honest living on their labor and struggle to pay their bills every week because it builds character.

And, indeed, that’s true – it builds character – but having a lot of “unearned” money to spend also builds personality which we can read about in the Bloomberg Billionaires.

We note that their combined fortunes easily go up and down by about $10 billion every day which would be the Daily Bread of about 10 million American-style workers or executives at $1,000 per day or the Daily Bread of 100 million World-style workers at about $100 per day, which is most of us, and $10 billion is still much less than the Daily Market Float (about $2 trillion) which is the World Class Workspace of the full market (B)-class Portfolio which we call “The Perpetual Bond” because it’s forever and never needs any supercilious adjustments as long as there is a market somewhere.

And we need to think about getting used to earning more of our money in the stock market because that’s where the money is and we’ll need it the future (Bloomberg, October 26, 2016, How the Next President Could Save Social Security).

So, the gloves are off, boys and girls, and we’ve taken a $100 billion “position” for our pension plan and we’re running the 12% bond in the NASDAQ (as above) and we have a reasonable expectation that your money is going to go down more often and that ours will always go up and only up as long as there is a market and you’re looking for an income in it; please see Exhibit 3 below (and click on it and again to make it larger as required).

And for more applications of these concepts please see our Posts which rely on the Theory of the Firm developed by the author (Goetze 2006) which calibrates The Process to the units of the balance sheet and demonstrates the price of risk as the solution to a Nash Equilibrium between “risk-seeking” and “risk-averse” investors within the demonstrated societal norms of risk aversion and bargaining practice. And for more on The Process, please see our Posts The Food Chain and The Process End-Of-Process.
