Where is the smart money going?
Consider investing in Somali piracy.
Financiers now can purchase shares of Somali pirate ventures.
This is not just for fat cats; small investors are welcome:
Piracy investor Sahra Ibrahim, a 22-year-old divorcee, was lined up with others waiting for her cut of a ransom pay-out after one of the gangs freed a Spanish tuna fishing vessel.
'I am waiting for my share after I contributed a rocket-propelled grenade for the operation,' she said, adding that she got the weapon from her ex-husband in alimony.
'I am really happy and lucky. I have made $75,000 in only 38 days since I joined the 'company'.'
To the best of your humble blogger's knowledge, neither Moody's nor Goldman Sachs has weighed in on the value of these investments.
