Paradigm Lost: The Psychology of Money and Investing
Paradigm Lost and the New Investment Landscape
The great American bull market of the last two decades has held forth an implicit promise to investors A– the promise of a sort of financial paradise on earth. That promise of an unprecedented opportunity for earned and unearned riches has engaged the deepest beliefs, loyalties and passions of investors.
The ensuing years of economic prosperity engendered a faith in a new paradigm in the financial markets, one that paralleled the societyA’s embrace of a New Economy. This faith in the transforming powers of microprocessors, fiberoptics, digital technology and abundant bandwidth in ushering in a new era bordered on a kind of religiosity.
The degree to which our society has been inculcated with the promise of a new paradigm is evident by the extent personal investing has become our new national passion. The spell cast by Wall Street, and subsequently reflected off the images of the newly rich, has infiltrated virtually every strata of our culture. But have the rules of the New Economy also changed the age-old rules of money and investing? Have the remarkable innovations of technology and the seductions of material abundance altered what we think about money and how it makes us behave? Or after several centuries of it, is the stock market still just an intricate system requiring knowledge, intuition and luck?
In his prior book The Mind of the Market, F. J. Chu boldly set forth a philosophy of mind for the financial mind. Using a combination of market savvy, psychological insight and philosophical reflection that is his trademark, Chu now takes the reader into the bizarre and terrifying heart of A“the great gameA” - where the players concoct a strange brew of mathematics, market timing, and investor sentiment to outsmart the competition. He poses the question: A“Are we still riding the arc of a rising curve leading us out into the Digital Age? Or is the wheel about to arrive full circle yet once again?A”
privatisation, progress, GDP Grossly Decaying Psyche, Zero tolerance multibillion dollar investments boasted by BOI
Government of Pakistan proudly announced in the newspaper that ALHAMDO LILLAH (unfortunately the script reads incorrectly the same word, BOI, board of Investment announces the rapid growth in the foreign investment (INSET GRAPH). It is now US$ 3521 Millions in 2005-6 as compared to the 2001-2 figures of 485 M and 2004-5 figure of 1624 Million $. The last page also shows the wonderful effects of this huge success parameter on the lives of average Pakistani. Seven people committed suicide in a separate news story while in Nishter colony, Lahore a 3rd grader student was murdered after he was brutally sodomized. The suicide graph is rising sharply as the poverty and hunger increases and people find themselves ill equipped to counter the onslaught of FTV models, diamond jewellery, mini skirts, posh houses, porsche showrooms, and a lifestyle with no worries and lots of money at least on surface. A young man murdered his wife and 3 months old daughter for fear that they will be left helpless to face the wolves of the elite society, before taking his own life. This guy from Badin (Sindh) was 32 years old Karim and his wife Noor bano (the lady who glows) and daughter, Mehnaz are all dead when the BOI was preparing to paste the copy of that glorious achievement. A 28 years old SALAM didnt have money and his wife was in the hospital to give birth to their child. No political leader or our great preachers or plot-and-shop-owners came to his rescue and he couldnt face the new comer for whose delivery hospital was too commercial to let come without a hefty sum of money. So he took his life and ended misery. In the posh area of Defence, Lahore, a mohter of three took his own life. She was a servant in a modern house. In EDEN housing scheme, 25 years old Fahim killed himself, he married two months ago on his own and love marriage (as if there are non love marriages, but they do exist in our society) was not accepted by his family who promptly declared him "unholy, unethical and criminal of breaking family/ clan values" and threw him out. He was not very rich and couldnt afford a lifestyle of convenience so suddenly. Unemployed he refused to continue to live and hanged himself from the ceiling fan (a preferred modus operandii in our culture to take one's life). May be at that time the last digits of the billions of dollars' worth of investment was being printed by the press. Who knows. The lower newsitem about the killing of a class 3 student after he was sodomized tells us of a 11 year old kid. His father sent him to the nearby small bazar. Iqbal, his dad is a mason, low income group guy in the affluent society where multibillion $ investment is being boasted. The deceased brother, Nisar found his shoe and they started to search for their lost son and brother. At some distance were the farms where they found his body which was naked and police reached, took custody of the corpse, confirmed that he died of asphyxia. Somebody choked him to death after sodomizing him. The deceased was a student in his uncle's school and was 5th in number of 8 siblings. Society is riddled with homosexual abuse but we have always managed to cover it up under strict laws and 'keep-the-mouth-and-mind-shut' attitudes instead of searching for answers to this dilemma. More on it after I get some more sarcasm:)
231/365 : A bad investment
.. and a worse hold. Todays' shot brought to you by Flickr Group Roulette : Hindsight. I bought some(we're not talking a lot here) InFocus stock when I worked there and figured it would go up to about 4-5X what I bought it for within a year. It quickly doubled in a few months and then sank permanently well below what I bought it for. In hindsight, there are two places that I could have/should have sold it and made money or at least broken even. So much for useless 20/20 vision in hindsight.
