  • Herbalife rebounds after Mr. Ackman fails to deliver a knockout punch [View news story]
    What a waste of time and energy. For all those people who berate HLF, why not focus your anger where it could do some good. Start with companies and make and sell poison disguised as food. Kraft, McDs, etc all sell poison. Stuff that has no nutritional value. Is it no wonder there is an obesity epidemic, "food" allergy epidemic, autism, etc.? No one is getting sick from HLF. Yet 95% of the crap in a grocery store is poison. How can you have a healthy economy when you have a sick populace? Then stop the frackers from polluting what's left of your ground water while you still can. In one generation you may not have any and what you have will be toxic. But no, HLF is a ponzi scheme and that's important. Yeesh.

  • Are Interest Rates Still To High? [View article]
    basic mistake in english - "to" is a preposition, "too" is an adverb.

    Are Interest Rates Still TOO High?

    only an open market can answer the question. a politburo cannot.

    if the global population is to go from 7-10 billion this century, what will all these new souls need? IBM? McDs? No, things more basic to survival.

    Tack, a repeat of the 1930s would not have been possible in today's world. In the 1930s there were no social programs as there are today. No unemployment, no food stamps, no SocSec, etc. These are the reasons that we do not see soup lines today, as just one example.

    The monetary policies of today are far worse than in the 1920s. This will be agreed to when people look back with decades of hindsight.

  • The Fed's Financial Repression At Work: How Big Blue Was Turned Into A Wall Street Slush Fund [View article]
    David, you are in good company. Stanley Drunkenmiller for one agrees with you.

    I would listen to Stanley before ANY writer on SA. But that's just me.

    who is an expert in the stock market? other SA writers? commentors perhaps? what are the "pros" doing these days?

    the average hedge fund has been a net seller for the last two years. the real PROS, like Stanley Drunkenmiller, are scared to death of what is happening.

    " IBM is a stock that you do not have to sell because of a recession. "

    This assumes that in the next recession IBM will be able to do what it has done in the past. But the next time they will have to service much, much larger amounts of debt at already ZIRP thus no rollovers will be possible. This will cause a huge backlash through the company. They have already squeezed all the blood out of the company. Good luck.

    there are stats out there showing that it is corps themselves, through their buybacks, that have been some of the, and at times THE, largest buyers of stocks in recent quarters.

  • Big Banks Hit With Monster $250 Billion Lawsuit In Housing Crisis [View article]
    "North Dakota has established an effective alternative model that other states might do well to emulate. In 1919, the state legislature pulled its funds out of Wall Street banks and put them into the state’s own publicly-owned bank"

    Seccession is in the air. :-)

    Are there any other states that have their own bank?
    http://bloom.bg/1oJa89E

    Eric Hardmeyer, chief executive officer of the Bank of North Dakota, said he’s heard from 30 to 40 states asking the same thing: How does the only state-owned bank in the U.S. work?
