    Did the economy really drop that far? I don't know, but it makes think this was to compensate for the too good figures they gave prior to the election.

  • China's Unrelenting And Mythological Midas Touch [View article]
    China being the great and wise civilization that it is, even has a phrase for it, the bragging wind. The worker lies about what he did, the supervisor adds all that up and adds a nice % to that and such inflation goes on all the way up the line. Reports have no relationship to reality. Due to such lnflations, Mao thought they had a surplus of wheat, over 20 million people starved to death.

  • Tim Geithner, Unreliable Narrator [View article]
    Great stuff. As to he is sorrowful for being pariah in honest company. Dishonest people disdain honest people because the honest people might turn them in. Fellow crooks are much less likely to as they could both go down. Of course one may turn states evidence. Geithner seems to be a total sycophant in order to be promoted and supported by his bosses - such total loyalty is especially loved by politicians. So as to any thought as to doing the right thing is absurd unless you understand it is the right thing for Tim and his career.

  • Negative GDP Is Extremely Rare [View article]
    Too much concentration of wealth is the primary cause of depression. For instance, the concentration of weath now is greater than ever, particularly the last peak, 1929. The prime example is the USSR, 50 years of depression with 1% (the communists) owning the country.

  • A C- Economy With Barely Any Growth (Video) [View article]
    The biggest problem is falling wages, but it is not the Republicans, it is the economy and demographics. The gov't could theoretically help but the elitist out of touch incompetent gov't, both dems and repubs, cannot.

  • The Central Bank Boom Is Creating Huge Risks For Investors [View article]
    I saw on Wealth Tracks, a great investor, possibly Akre, say that dividend stocks are probably over valued due to their popularity now. He likes companies that reinvest profit and cash flow to compound earnings growth for growth and tax advantage.l Good article.

  • Bank Of America: Turnaround Is Imminent [View article]
    I have written many comments on how corrupt BAC IS. I have seen nothing to indicate their culture has changed. They fired a mgr that had warned them how unlawfully Countrywide was operating. After they lost a nearly $1 million wrongful termination suit, they said it wasn't her warning to them, it said it was her management style they didn' t like. My quip, yes, they don't like honest managers. That was late last year, samo samo.

  • Watch Out Google, Microsoft Is Now An Android Phone Company [View article]
    There was a time long long ago that when MSFT could just announce they were getting into some business the and stocks in that business would go down. Similar to IBM even longer ago. If they succeed, it will be the exception plus they don' scare anyone.

  • Should People Listen To John Hussman's Forecasts? [View article]
    Accurate market forecasters are even rarer than outstanding fund managers. Gann, Gould, Bolton, Dysart, and Lindsay are the only ones I can think of. Using the credit cycle to predict the market has been working well. During Japan's lost decades, QE would boost the economy, inflation, rates and the market until about a year after they would stop it. Well, we have not even stopped yet. Missing one bear market can do wonders for long term return. John Templeton missed the terrible bear market that ended in 1974 by being invested in Japan at the time. Everybody else lost 50% or more as he stayed about even. So his performance was outstanding. Many caught up and surpassed his performance as the great bull ran, but that one deft move put him on the map.

  • Is Inflation Next? [View article]
    BINGO! The truth is so rarely said or heard. But it is the govt that allowed the 1% to buy them off and get treatment that made wealth concentration of such proportions possible.

  • Tesla Motors - Invest In Its New Models [View article]
    The Tesla S is a Tour de force. It's safer, roomier, corners better, better pick-up and terrific hi tech amenities with great gas mileage equivalence. If the E is similar, it will clean up and the environment. I will be surprised if current old line companies can compete. It will be great if they can and do.
