    By inventing money - right? Isn't that how govts spend more these days? Creating mountains of debt with no end in sight? Time to look for more shove-it ready projects, as there were and are no shovel-ready ones. We could build some bridges - Alaska, maybe?

    Definitely Harpo - he's the one with the brains and didn't run around telling everyone what he thought.

    Yes, thanks. If one does multiple comments, SA doesn't seem to be able to handle it. I have to exit the site, then come back in and try to find where I was. It makes for disjointed conversations.

    I keep thinking I hear helicopters. I'm thinking the govt will give everyone a Happy Birthday present about July/August, to bolster what will likely be an economy that's barely fogging the mirror. Probably some sort of voucher thing - you know - STIMULUS. Then, when everyone hoards their stimulus - there's always a way to hoard (e.g. - buying used instead of new)- then the FED will freak. What then?

    It was the clamoring of the bankers, who are not really "people," but self-interested manipulators.
    TBTF guarantees failure - think Hindenburg, or Titanic...

    Haha! The drowning sailor, if he squints his eyes, can see the wealthy diners enjoying drinks on the promenade. Misallocation means jobs with no future, harsh earning cycles for families, and a beat-down of the middle class. If you don't see it, you're avoiding looking at it. If you only hang out on Martha's Vineyard, your view of the world is myopic, at best.

    It is cotton candy, rather than a real meal. And, like cotton candy, it is not nutritious, and won't sustain life.

    This falling knife could be a double-bladed one. "Over?" Hmmm...

    One must never underestimate the power of the elected officials to extend and pretend, for just a bit longer. They have an amazing way of manipulating the press and the banks to make things seem so...safe...zzzzz. That's it, go back to sleep.

    Everyone remembers the soft, warm embraces on the beach. I believe Chris was wearing his favorite red high heels, with a sign on his back that said "Rent Me for a Night or a Weekend."

    I have to add that titanic political struggles that push commodity prices around, temporarily, are not good indicators of "market price." Political changes, which can be sudden, can translate into just as sudden a shock to the commodity price. These are not economic moves. Economic moves show up in your monthly grocery bill and the cost of eating lunch at your local restaurant - all of which have been steadily increasing.

    That's great that they'll get better over time, and most expect that to be the case. However, the one bolted to your wall tomorrow will not get better over time. It's a serious bet that these units installed tomorrow will make the long haul to a 10 year life cycle.

    I will be greatly surprised if the Powerwall will do all the cycles to get to 10 years. That's a very long time and cycles reduce battery life. It's just physics.

    Pretty funny that you think the wealthy are energy scrooges. I know a lot of wealthy people and they eat electricity at a rate of 3 to 5 times more than typical middle class homes.
