Web Perspectives Survey Company Review

After looking at some of the comments, I would have to agree that it is not a scam, but a huge waste of time if you don't get selected for a survey after giving opinions for upto 10-30 minutes.

Web Perspectives is another survey sites. Web Perspectives sends me surveys weekly and I receive a lot of surveys where the rewards are supposed to be $3-8 per survey.

Negatives: I have not made a single penny through their survey company. There have been many times when I have done the survey for half an hour and I get pop up saying that they were looking for some other group of people to survey. They have taken my opinions for a long period of time and haven't paid me.

There have been sometimes when the next page says "cannot be displayed" which could be a problem in my internet connection. This has happened multiple times, and I am not sure whether they are going to resolve their server problems anytime soon.

There are lots of other sites out there which don't waste your time and pay you even if you don't qualify for the survey. Take my word for it and spend time looking for better websites than Web Perspective.

Positives: Pays through paypal (free), survey rewards are high (if you are eligible)

My Rating: 6/10

More Helium Money Arrives!

As the Helium summer reward-a-thon ended September 22nd and the payments got issued on October 3rd. It took around 9 days to get the payments in my bank account, but they did arrive and so far this is my third payment and no mistakes have been made so far.

This payment was around $170 for writing one article every 3-5 days, that is a credible amount. The articles are also earning me $5-8 on monthly basis because most of them are ranked in the top quarter, giving me more search engine hits.

But as the reward-a-thon ends, so does my writing for Helium. If a new Reward-a-thon is introduced, then I will start writing again. So far I have earned over $300 and I am not really a good writer; just have a lot of general knowledge.

If you are a serious writer, then you can make money from the Helium Marketplace, where you can sell articles for $16-$300 per piece.

I have more writing stars, making me eligible for a higher payment for reward-a-thons, so I will definitely be writing more if more competitions are introduced and my next payment will be huge; predicting around $700.

How to make money During a Depression- Part 2

In Part 1, I gave stock betting as a solution to make money, instead of investing in the stocks, you invest "on" the stock. But if you are not a stock expert, it will be tough for you to make a significant profit from stock betting. Now lets talk about the more basic types to make money during a depression.

1.) Look for job options on the Internet. Since economic disasters don't affect some parts of the world, internet is a good income provider which was not available during the 1930s great depression. On the internet, the economy is always on the boom. Google advertisements are a healthy way to make money from a popular website or a blog created online. If you are one of the people that might get hit hard with the economic tsunami, then you should start looking online for job opportunities.

2.) Analyze the affects of the depression. A depression hasn't really occurred it; the economy might flourish again and I think it will. The economists must have learned something form the Great Depression and will try to prevent this from happening. Analyze what affects you are going to have if a depression does occur.

If you are a doctor, then you might actually make more money during the depression, due to the number of patients with high blood pressure, heart attacks, suicides, etc. In this case you don't need to worry about the depression at all! However if you own a business, or have jobs related to stock market, investing, real estate, then you will get affected and that is when you should start piling up some cash right now and look for other ways to make money.

3.) Do more work! If you only have a part-time job, then make it full-time or get two jobs. You need to work hard right now and earn as much as you can before you get fired. It is not difficult to handle two jobs; I know because I have done that in the past to pay tuition fees. If you don't want to suffer bankruptcy, then start earning more money by working more and spending less. Save some money and earn some money in case the depression comes.


How to make money During Depression - Part 1

Due to the popularity of the economic depression articles in the past few weeks, I have decided to write a series of articles on making money during a depression because we all might have to start thinking about that soon if the economy does not recover.

Not everyone during the great depression was in "depression"; in fact some people were able to make millions of dollars in that time using a combination of luck and brain.

How exactly did these people benefit from economic depression? The biggest economy game to play is stock betting. You basically make a bet on how much the stock will fall or rise and you get returns on it. I am not talking about illegal gambling. If you are an investor then you should be aware of what I am talking about. Stock betting is 100% legal and billions of dollars are floating on stock bets in the market.

Some conspiracy theorists even believe that stock market crashes are intentional so that stock bettors can make a lot of profit. This has never been proven, but could be true. For example, let's say my company is worth $50 million, and 30-40 people bet that my stock will drop to a value of $0. These 30-40 people had bets of $5-10 million each making a total of $400 million.

If I ask these bettors to give me a percentage of their profits if I decide to close my company, then I might end up making more than $50 million. So I make a decent profit while showing a loss in my company.

Yes, the false loss statements is illegal, but stock betting isn't. If you are an economist, then you should know which stocks are falling in prices and bet on them right now! There is no better time to bet on stocks than a depression. Since most stocks fall in value, your chances of making money increase and since there is a lot of talk about stock markets; you can easily access information.

Like I mentioned before, stock betting is done in billions of dollars and is a major part of the stock market profits/losses. People have already made money because of the huge stock market crash. That is why I tell you, "Become Street Smart and Make Money!"

The American Economy going towards depression

The major stock market crash, the donation by the government, then eventually a 1 trillion dollar loss; the American economy might be going towards another depression. If you have read my previous articles about the great depression, then you should be able to understand what is happening in the American Economy represents a similar pattern which occurred in 1930s.

1.) High Inflation Rate
2.) Stock Index reaching record highs and record lows in a small period of time
3.) Closure of huge businesses

The inflation rate for gas prices has been abnormally high. Not significantly high for one consumer, but all together the inflation rate is almost 30-40%. Stock markets have recently been funded, recovered and then went downhill. One of the major causes is the bank loans, which were granted to people who couldn't afford to pay back.

Banks usually take all your assets if you are unable to pay them the loan back. But the assets of Americans were no where near the loaned amount. This money was lost in businesses, stocks, gambling, stock betting, food, etc. Since most people failed, they had a huge debt and filed for bankruptcy. While this was happening, the banks were also not able to get money and this resulted in some of the major banks to increase interest rates or close down completely.
