Investing In China

I have always been leery of investing in China because of the country's complete abrogation of individual rights and the absence of any form of objective law. Yet I'm continually surprised that most large businesses vigorously downplay the risks and claim to see nothing but opportunity in China. This article makes the case that not only may there be no profits to be had for the particular Western businesses who invest there, but that eventually losses in China may prove to be a threat to the entire global financial system. Of course, any single article on its own is not enough to allow us to draw firm conclusions on so complex a subject, but it's definitely a different perspective, and one that gibes with overall philosophical principles. So caveat emptor to any prospective investors in China and here's hoping that they don't drag us all down with them.

You have done a great job on setting up your Blog. Your site will definately be bookmarked.

I am in the process of setting up a investing msn
site. It's basically a resource site which covers investing msn
related stuff.

Please let me know what you think if you have time to check it out.

Last week I told you about Google Site Targeting -
putting your AdWords ads on specific websites
instead of targeting by keyword, and how this
slices the world in a completely different way.

Now you can pay to have your ad shown, rather
than paying per click, and you can more easily
advertise products that people wouldn't necessarily
think to search for.

Google started out selling this space for $2.00
per thousand impressions ("CPM"). Then they
dropped it to $1.00.

On Monday they just dropped it again, to 25 cents.

(Now we're talking!)

This now puts those clicks in the ~5 cent neighborhood,
and in some cases less. It's a fun thing to play with.
But before you do, though, make sure you:

-Set a low daily budget so you don't make a big mistake

-Track conversion rates (Very important! Without
sales conversion, nothing else matters.)

-Delete sites with horrible Click Thru Rates - Hey, if
you're not getting any clicks, you shouldn't be paying
them for the impressions.

Want to increase the clicks on your adsense ads? Of course you do. This means more money in your pocket.
For FREE Information. That will for sure make you more money by the end of the week.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
