    There was a talk on a tv show, late last night, and the main subject was:

    Where would you invest if you had $100K??

    The only things that you have to take into consideration are:

    1) $100K budget
    2) global crisis

    You can invest anywhere ( online, offline, offshore, in another country.. ) and on anything ( commerce, real estate, stocks.. ) as long as it legal of course.. ;)

    So...where would you invest??

    Sorry for placing it in the wrong section.. Mods feel free to move it to the right section if thats the case..

    @macyzbor: The discussion was about investing money in some kind of a venture, business, project investment or something else.. thats why i used the word investment.. nothing wrong about wanting to spend money on yourself but it is not considered as investing.. ;)

    Btw i dont think it is the wrong section.. I mean the hypothetical question of where would you invest is associated with you investing a sum to make money.. Of course this is not a thread about ways to make money BUT ways that you would invest that kinda of money to make more..

    Hope we agree on this one.. :D

    I would buy the sickest car ever (veyron?) and trash it just coz I can.

    also, a DDOS attack against Warriorforum and digitalpoint would be something I'd do.
    oh and include syndk8 too for spamming me recently.

    Guys and gals of course, if any. Lets first understand what INVEST means.

    Buying a car or other stuff is not investing. You are utilizing the money but not investing.

    Add to that you are discussing this on BHW forum. I would imagine someone should/would have considered investing in a large scale BH/WH entrepreneurial idea.

    Btw, as far as i am concerned I would perhaps do it like this :

    20% - Equity
    30% - Real Estate
    20% - Gold and other instruments
    30% - Internet Real Estate ( Create/buy)

    If it were a couple mills then i would say put some in the retirement fund and everything but for a 100k there simply isnt enough to put up for those.

    Thats my $0.02!

    Thats a well structured CORRECT answer.. I was trying to tell the guys that buying cars is not investing but ur answer covers me.. ;)

    I mean come one guys use ur brain..

    You could invest in e-commerce, real estate, forex, stocks/oil/commodities etc u name it..

    Just choose what suits you best.. And when u make a lot more than 100K then go and buy a "veyron" and a house in beverly hills.. :D

    I would put it all into real estate. Tons of foreclosures out there and in 3-5 years you would have made a killing and enough to retire on. Simple as that :)

    THIS IS IN THE WRONG SECTION.

    It is a hypothetical question but it is not a method to make us actual money so it is self serving and that = wrong section!
    :tsk:

    "A man without land is nothing"

    Always, always invest in real appreciating assets, not paper stocks with no inherent wealth or internet properties which is always changing or an instantly depreciating asset like a stupid car. Buy an acreage outside of some larger metropolitan area.

    1.) it will appreciate in the coming years as people start to move out of major cities. (with 3 billion more people being added to the earth over the next 50 years, what do you think our cities are going to look like? There will be a flight to the ex-suburbs away from it all)

    2.) it will support you if needed - with a piece of land, a water source, small house you can be nearly 100% self sufficient if shit ever hits the fan.
