Friend of the Gormos: JVL

GorT is a big believer in correlated data and there are certain demographic trends that aren’t looking promising for the United States.  The one I usually cite is the population numbers by age versus investment behavior by age.  I believe that there is a strong possibility that a contributing factor to the slow recovery from this recession (aside from the terrible policies and lack of leadership of the Obama Administration) is the large number of boomers who are starting retirement and shifting their investment behaviors into a more conservative stance.  There is data that supports this such as the correlation between P/E (price to earnings) and the ratio of 40-49 year olds to 60-69 year olds:

The other trend is the national birth rates.  Friend of the Gormogons, Jonathan V. Last was on CBS This Morning to promote his new book, What to Expect When No One Is Expecting.   He handles the questions expertly.  Even with what some may think are a few digs against his position by one of the female co-hosts  (over population hurting the environment and women more empowered by having fewer children), he quickly points out the issues and reasoning behind the birth rate decline concern with regards to her points.  It’s worth a watch and the book is worth a purchase.  Click right here.  Really.  Do it.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
