Anyone notice that the "Motley Fool" has caught up to iTulip?

Typical of the Motley Fool, in my opinion -- a smoothly written and entertaining yet clear and factual treatment of the issue. How the Subprime Crisis relates to the falling dollar and debt.

But the Motley Fool, however contrary and sapient, is pretty well 'mainstream' compared to iTulip... so once again, the 'mainstream' gradually comes to recognize the things iTulip has been predicting for a year or more.

I'll be curious to read Part 2 and see if the agreement continues...

Say, they must have posted Part 2 at the same time I just let everyone know about it. Interesting advice in Part 2.

Also note, the point about the dollar becoming less attractive, ties in with the slightly darker musings of "The Cunning Realist" today. Another worthwhile blog.

the fool's advice is pretty underwhelming: e.g, don't buy citi, buy microsoft instead.

JK: that's what the fool does, give generally common sense advice, with a twinge of entertainment. btw selling C and buying MSFT isn't a bad idea.
