COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal.com—Have you ever  broken up with someone and years later saw how good he or she was doing, only to feel like the world’s biggest idiot?

COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal.com—I’m a big fan of “imagine” conversations, mainly because they take me back to the glory days of high school class-skipping shenanigans. These spaced-out talks would focus on completely unrealistic projections, as participants started each scenario with a drawn-out “MAGIN” that quickly veered off into the realm of stupidity. Indeed, we were deliberately unrealistic in [...]

COMMENTARY–ProspectingJournal–Whether an illusion or not, a bubble or a parabolic paradigm shift, gold puts a smile on my face every time I hear it in the news or read about it among the vast sea of opinions.

COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal.com—Well, it has been nice knowing all of you, whoever you are. Indeed, we had fun while we could—spending those hard-earned dollars on paying back credit cards, kicking our own personal cans down the road, living beyond our means thanks to third-world sweatshops and oil.

COMMENTARY—ProspectingJournal—It didn’t take long, upon my entry into the world of stock markets, mining and economic theories, to get wrapped up in the what ifs and whys. Industry leaders, influential commentators and established websites, while perhaps conservative in their thinking years ago, now have one thing in common: a rising tolerance, and even acceptance, of what used to [...]

COMMENTARY – ProspectingJournal.com – What’s in a name? For some executives, the name and logo is merely a placeholder for their companies’ project portfolio, and an identifier on their business card.

COMMENTARY—Prospectingjournal.com—These days, it’s hard not to be a conspiracy theorist, what with the near-collapse of the EU, the teetering of the once mighty US empire, a supposedly dead Bin Laden, 24-hour fear in the news, and the increasingly democratic dumping ground for uncensored ideas, known as blogs. Throw gold into the mix, add the internet, [...]
