    ------> I want to see a plan scored by the CBO with reliable numbers and quantifiable mile stones not some pie in the sky speech.

    Good luck with that!

  • Stock Prices Implying Overly Pessimistic Earnings Scenarios [View article]
    If history is any guide at all, then sovereign powers will chose the path of higher inflation. And you know what they say about history and that "repeating thing".

    Those betting on deflation, then, are betting on history NOT repeating THIS time around... in effect saying: "it's different this time..." or to James' point for the article: "that the future may not be like the past."

    I will side with history on this one.... History may not repeat, but at least it should rhyme!!!

    Re: article tomorrow: looking forward to it... just make sure it makes it to the ECB's "inbox"....

    The 10year is crossing back through 2% as I write this... looks like your thesis may begin to play out this week re: treasuries.... ;-)

    James, China could step-in at the last minute (perhaps with our own Fed) to preclude ANY breakup of the Euro. I realize this is minority opinion...

    === The threshold of a boom is not visible for those immersed purely in statistics.

    Robert, very impressive resume:

    Are you long AAPL, GOOG, ORCL now? Or are you waiting for a better entry price?

    Thanks,

    smr36: You hit the nail on the head.... Culpability IS so widely spread it is impossible to unwind and asses individual responsibility. I believe you are correct. But Congress needs the "show" for the masses...

    What about S&P, Fitch and Moodys? What about Paulson allowing banks to lever 40:1? What about CDO soup, mixing sub-prime with prime and everyting in between? Everyone (and I mean every link in the chain) was complicit in the bubble. Hell, even I was...

    I remember looking at property in Phoenix (yes, Phoenix ground zero) back in late 2006. When is came down to discussing price / financing on a property I liked, the saleslady grabbed my wrist and said (and this is the ACTUAL quote): "Here's how it works, Jason, if you have a pulse (and you do), then we have a loan for you.

    I remember how uncomfortable I felt walking out of there. It was out of whack... I knew it, she knew it, everyone knew it, society knew it. But everyone continued riding the gravy train until the gravy train was no more.

    Such is hope, fear and greed... it is the constant...

    Yahoo User, I agree. All the big money fleeced from the housing bubble has already been "restored" to the perpetrators with all the liquidity pumping several quarters ago (i.e. bailouts).

    The true screwjob is acting (pretending) as if going after the banks NOW is going to punish the "original" perpetrators. They're long gone...
    Have you heard from Lewis, Paulson, Fuld, etc., etc, lately? Does anyone believe anything done NOW is going to "rectify" their criminality? Or put them in jail? Hmmm....
