    I can only speak for myself.

    Seeking alpha is not about verb-noun tense agreement or even dangling participles, its a community of diverse individuals sharing the common goal of encouraging thoughtful discourse in the pursuit of both absolute returns and risk-adjusted returns.

    This is ain't grammar school. It's about making money and saving capitalism. If it doesn't contribute to achieving either of these objectives then quit clogging up threads with grammar or spelling corrections!

    I don't apologize for doing the same because I'm calling you out on it and as it is fatiguing and a waste of valuable time to go through these tedious and non-amusing missives when the markets are moving.

    If SA keeps it up serious investors will migrate where there is a more focused community.

    I actually use that same indicator. My observation is just the opposite. Are you writing from Beijing?

    The unemployment rate is reported to have fallen. If it has indeed decreased it is probably due primarily to shrinkage of the labor force.

    Oponions my friend.

    Ad arguendo, 20 years is a short time in the lifespan of a nation. I know they, neigh we, will continue because history shows that once a nation begins to pursue the heady elixir becomes a panacea for all ailments fiscal and otherwise.
    Because of Irving Fisher's equation of exchange, inflation was shown to vary directly with and be caused solely by the variations in the money supply, rather than as being a consequence of aggregate demand.

    Because Lucas and others argued that Keynesian economics required remarkably foolish and short-sighted behavior from people, which totally contradicted the economic understanding of their behavior at a micro level and rational analysis.

    Becasue as Hayek, von Mises, Schumpeter, and other Austrians recognized Keynesian economic policies are plain, simply, and fundamentally collectivist; arguing that such theories encourage centralized planning, which leads to malinvestment of capital, which is the cause of business cycles. Hayek claimed that what starts as temporary governmental fixes usually become permanent and expanding government programs, which stifle the private sector and civil society. Murray Rothbard said expansionists has "its roots deep in medieval and mercantilist thought."

    Because, training, education, experience, and a little bird told me so! Again, it's opinion my good man, not all have them anymore...they are what we now call moderates.

    Keynesians just can't help themselves. If a little bit is good, more is better.
    I have backed up my opinion with my investments and am enjoyng the second year of repudiation of one price theory/assumption.

    Good luck investing with this govt. It's everyman for himself. YOu had better KNOW what you beleive and why, and identify the appropriare risk-return relationship.

    Oh really, then send me your corn, cotton, coffee, wheat, soy, crude, coal, Cu, Ag, Au and I will send you $1.00 per exchange unit. That is 100 times what you are offering for treasuries.
    Are you in?

    What makes a market is "kooks" versus "Americans in Paris." In a zero sum game, there will be only one winner...right now the score is lopsided in favor of the "kooks."
