Now that you’ve pulled all your money out of what used to be your bank, you need a new investment strategy. And being environmentally conscious, you’d like your strategy to be colored green. So here’s the deal, based on a new strategy that’s making its rounds on the web.
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago,you would have $49.00 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.
But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you would receive $214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.
Also bear in mind that a recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, we get about 41 miles to the gallon! Makes you proud to be an American!
