Azalin Posted July 3, 2010 Share Posted July 3, 2010 So, when you see your savings melt with the stock market, buying an expensive concertina might not be a priority. Alternatively, when your invested money earns damn all and not even major banks seem safe, a really quality concertina looks a reasonable long term investment and at least in the short term you can play it. The classic 'bike market is healthy for exactly this reason, I'm told. If you get no interest on your money anyway, you can at least have some fun with it. (I can supply a highly desirable Matchless P11 to anyone wanting to invest in this particular field...) Yes, the problem is, these investments can't be used in a registered retirement account. In Canada, we have big tax credits when we invest in such a fund. But anyway I think now people don't have money at all to invest, either in the stock market, concertinas, bikes or anything else. I'm saying this because some of my own recent stupid, risky investment crumbled a bit in the past few weeks, so any expense seems like a big deal to me right now.
