Is it just me or is it completely insane to go searching for high-risk "alternative" investments based on a free article on a web page? If you're not already enough of an expert to know about these ideas, then you don't know enough to understand the risks involved.
These kinds of investments might be fun speculation, but you'd have to be crazy to base some kind of money-making strategy on them if you've never heard of them before reading this article.
To quote Homer Simpson: After years of disappointment with get-rich-quick schemes, I know I’m gonna get rich with this scheme ... and quick!

Maybe there would be plenty of money if they weren't flushing all their tax revenues down the toilet on providing unnecessary services to a population that can't stop begging for more, giving the full benefit of our entitlement programs to people living in the country illegally, regulating low-cost contractors out of business, and generally spending hundreds of billions of dollars on things far less important than making sure the water mains are kept in good repair.
