Just got off the phone with My Man at Jai, Alai, Threecard-Monty LLC.  He had the following asset allocation recommendation for a balanced portfolio , based on walking by the New York Federal Reserve Bank this morning and noticing that the usually lightly armed Federal Reserve cop was toting a pump-action shotgun:

50% Carbon Emission Futures

30% Blue Chip pitch fork manufacturers

20% Cat food

To quote My Man: “If it all goes pear-shaped and the rabble hit the streets and have to start eating cat-food, you’re 50% covered.”
