    Couldn't agree with you more, Daro. Too bad the Russian people are too afraid to stand up to him.

    Or if unemployment is high and workers plentiful, they won't raise wages even if they are doing well. Salaries for upper management is another thing.

  • Jobless Claims dives 19K to 284K [View news story]
    In the past year, job openings have increased nearly 20 percent. But total hiring has risen just 4 percent.

    Does this mean that most job openings go unfilled? Employers still looking for the red squirrel? (Potential employees that can do anything for next to nothing)

    True, but the number who stayed employed greatly outnumbered the unemployed. Pity those who still had a job but sold off at the lows and dared not step back in.

    Yes, the quit rate is a good positive indicator.

    How many have retired due to a record high in 401K accounts - those who stuck it out with the market and worked a few more years than planned may have become free men/women.

    That's how I read it. Looks like banking problems in Portugal. Tiny country. I'm still waiting for a correction pushed on by nervousness and profit taking. Problem is, the low of the correction may be a number that is higher than what the market is currently at.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For A Mid-Course Correction? [View article]
    Having lived (and invested) through the dot com bubble, I can tell you there is no correlation to today. I was dancing the jig as investors bought companies for their ideas and potential profit from such, driving prices higher and hire. Well, I went from the jig to singing a funeral dirge, like everyone else. Today we are betting on companies increasing their earnings, not pulling them out of thin air.

    Food inflation is another that no one can really control, unless soylent green becomes popular. Weather will wreak havoc on crops.

    With very little wage inflation, I don't see any broad inflationary pressures.
