Make sure your holiday investments include a little SWAG

SWAG can be an enigmatic word. It can mean anything from decorative festoons to plunder and prey. Positive and negative images abound.

Ponder this:





By now, you’ve probably heard the buzz about the latest meaning of SWAG. According to financial expert and author Joe Roseman, the SWAG anagram for Silver, Wine, Art and Gold represents the commodities that hold value through even the most stressful financial times.


In his book, Silver, Wine Art, Gold: Alternative Investments for the Coming Decade, Roseman advises investors to stock up on these items, laying out financial advice for what he predicts could be an unstable financial future.

We think that outlook is a bit grim.




We’d like to give a more positive spin the notion of SWAG.

So, we suggest you give this anagram a whirl:


A Google search for slang interpretations of SWAG turned up this gem:

Swag. adjective: “How fly u are n how trill you are. As in cool.”

While this may not be the most cultured definition, it certainly does lift the spirits a bit more than Roseman’s doomsday advice. Who wouldn’t prefer to be a little more fly, a little more trill and certainly cool?

Seriously, who doesn’t like Silver, Wine, Art and Gold, any old time of the day? If you have it, you might as well revel in your Superior Wisdom And Gain. And, if the financial environment ends up looking a little dicey, wouldn’t you feel a little better stepping into a brave new world surrounded by beautiful things?

We can all use a little more SWAG in our lives, don’t you think?
