Social Morms

Education, political economy and society, from a just-off of orthodox Mormon perspective. By a guy who can't manage to permanently escape from Provo.

Back in business!

Bwa ha ha ha! I'm back. The question is, of course, if I really have time to maintain this thing. I've returned from Morocco, with a few posts that I never got around to posting. Sadly, I no longer blog with reference to my cafe-seat in Rabat, but with one in a classroom and a small shared office at Brigham Young University. You see, I've returned to what passes for my native land. No, I'm not actually from Utah, but I've spent five of my last seven years here, and since my parents have moved multiple times since I left home, I really have nothing that feels like home quite the way Provo does.

So I begin a master's degree in public policy at "the BY" this fall. [ed.- For those of you unfamiliar with the jargon, that's Mormon oldperson speak for "Brigham Young University." BYU students, for an equally inexplicable reason, may be referred to as "zoobies," though this usage dominates more among my parents generation than mine. "The BY" is more likely to be found in the colloquial usage of my grandparents generation. I'm quite sure that there is plenty of overlap]. I will learn the fine art of policy analysis, how to use the Stata software package, and economic models that have no relation to reality. Fun!

I'm still trying to get a sense of what this blog will focus on. Naturally, it will be ranty and screedy: some of my favorite topics on that account include the BYU economics department's incomprehensibly dogmatic neo-classical approach (ok, I'll probably write just one blog on that, for the sake of getting it out of my system), Mormon culture and my ideas about politics, economics and social justice. This isn't exactly a daily journal sort of thing, but one never knows what might come up. So enjoy, if you're willing.
So, I'll post a few old Morocco columns over the course of the next week in the hopes of resurrecting what poor readership I had when I started this project, months ago. In the meantime, I'll see if I can't come up with something interesting.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
