Interesting economics.

========================
If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of Beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have had $214.00.

Based on the above, current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

It's called the 401-Keg Plan

Actually, if you bought 1,000 in Budweiser, buying it by the case, you'd have roughly $71.40 if the deposit on each can is five cents. I don't know what the CA deposit is.

Are we talking domestic, import, or microbrew? I bet they keep beer in the fridge at Enron.
