Hindsight - the Foresight SagaIf you have a US Dollar account and you don't live in the USA, it's worth knowing that when you move money from one place to another, it matters where it is routed! Banks understand this, and you can save yourself from a lot of political problems by avoiding money transfer going via the USA

A good guide to investments can be found in Hindsight the Foresight Saga

Investing in stocks and shares is risky, but here's something which will always have some value: A single framed share certificate in a company of your choice. Interesting, collectable talking-point: Framed Share
