By Vern Gowdie – The Gowdie Letter (Australia) –
The Port Douglas Great Repression conference was excellent.
Tropical North Queensland is as close to paradise as you can get.
The presentations were entertaining and highly informative.
And, leaving the best to last, it was wonderful to meet so many readers.
Researching and writing is a fairly solitary existence, so to meet some of the people you ‘chat’ with each week was a real highlight for me. Thank you.
One question I was asked more than any other is: ‘How do you reconcile your (bearish) outlook with Phil Anderson’s (bullish) forecasts?’ I even receive emails with ‘CONFUSED!!’ emblazoned in the subject line.
The reason I enjoy writing for Port Phillip Publishing is down to the diversity of opinions that exist between the editorial team. Each one of us is given the freedom to express an opinion…so long as that opinion is well researched and supported. There is definitely NO company line to toe.
Strength is gained from resistance. Receiving intelligent and well-reasoned pushback on your ideas, opinions, outlook, and beliefs is a good thing…you get to test the robustness of your position.
Only time will tell whose outlook was the more accurate, or whether both views were way off the mark and we achieve some sort of ‘muddle through’ stagnating-type compromise.
What is the trend?
