  • Consumer Credit: The Crunch Goes On [View article]
    Real economic recovery... Quant easing distorts our reality.

    I'll call it government induced unsustainable temporary improvement at the expense of long term stability but never real economic recovery.

  • Plans pushed by Rep. Ron Paul and others to audit the Fed are popular with populists - and not so much with academic economists, many of whom are dialing up their calls to drop the plans.  [View news story]
    What a surprise.

  • Markets Are Still Pessimistic [View article]
    "Stocks and bonds are still priced to some fearsome assumptions, and this is hardly the stuff of an overbought or overextended market"

    Maybe because we know a lot more about ponzi america vs 2006...

    Seriously are we supposed to believe everything is perfect again? Thats not coming back & neither are the excessive home prices....

    Its a different world... you have to admit that.

  • President Obama (live stream) proposes tax cuts for small business, to encourage hiring. The capital-gains tax on new investments would fall to zero for a year, and investment-expense tax breaks extended through the end of 2010.  [View news story]
    Ahh, eliminate taxes for all & keep deficit spending & money printing...

    Good times... I wish I could work my budget they way they do

  • Bernanke: Don't Expect Rate Hike Before U.S. Economy Is on Solid Footing [View article]
    Another Greenspan bubble in the making...

    Greenspan didn't see a bubble in 2003
    Bernake didn't see deflation coming in 2007
    Bernake doesn't see inflation coming now

    Fed is totally incompetent...

    Although I give them a little space as we need to fight Chinas currency manipulation

  • The Destruction of the Dollar: It's Nearly Inevitable [View article]
    Again another article that looks at just USD & debt without considering global currency manipulation & quantitative easing.

    I hate the FED but you have to hate Chinas manipulation of their YUAN & QE more as they have put the US in this position by hoarding commodities, taking our goods producing jobs (Still -69K last month by the way)

    Agree that the dollar purchasing power is toast but it may stay on par with other currencies as globe prints money.

    Look at Japan last week... announcing their YEN is too high & they are going to do what the US is doing.

    Japan's had more debt to GDP than us for a hell of a long time & their currency is rising! Using our debt as a reason why the USD will collapse doesn't float.

    Am I wrong?

  • Intel (INTC) kills plans to sell a consumer version of its much-touted, much-delayed multi-core graphics chip - Larrabee - which was supposed to to open a new front of competition with Nvidia (NVDA) and AMD (AMD), and says it will provide an update about future versions some time next year. Nvidia: "The fact that a company with Intel's technical prowess and financial resources has struggled so hard to succeed with parallel computing shows just how exceptionally difficult a challenge this is."  [View news story]

  • As the Dollar Rises and Gold Falls, Should We Get Ready for Fed Rate Hikes? [View article]
    Great call Mark... its a perverse world & not printing money will expose it... It looks like they've made the decision to print money forever & theres no going back.
    If they let rates go back up, stop buying MBS we'll have another meltdown in housing... they just aren't going to let it slide.

    The question is when does printed money, rising costs combined with taxation, lower wages, increasing medical costs & erosion of savings cause the middle class to have no more purchasing power? Could be soon... but then again the government will be the biggest driver of the economy & not the consumer

  • Bernanke Is Not the Problem [View article]
    Great article... the Fed as a whole over a prolonged time will continue to destroy the dollar covertly.

    The question is however... if the Fed didn't manipulate our currency would China do it with their Fed? Lets face it they print away & have a stimulus package that is double ours... & they weren't in recession at all!

    Imagine China's Fed unabated...

    While I don't like the Fed, I really hate the actions of an artificially low Yuan over the years.
