"The thing about how that process works is that it's more about the editing and time for judging the ideas. Most pieces I publish each week have been around for months.

That was when I was doing dailies four days a week." - Paul Madonna

"I invented a camera that has an exposure time of one hundred years and the camera works in the simplest possible terms, because anything more complicated is more likely to break down in one way or another.

"Over two thousand years ago, Aristotle taught us that money should be durable, divisible, consistent, convenient, and value in itself. It should be durable, which is why wheat isn't money; divisible which is why works of art are not money; consistent which is why real estate isn't money; convenient, which is why lead isn't money; value in itself, which is why paper shouldn't be money. Gold answers to all these criteria." - Doug Casey
