Comments on: America just declared the recovery over so you’d better get ready for the double dip http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/02/23/america-just-declared-the-recovery-over-so-youd-better-get-ready-for-the-double-dip/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: libby51 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/02/23/america-just-declared-the-recovery-over-so-youd-better-get-ready-for-the-double-dip/#comment-29130 Thu, 25 Feb 2010 11:58:40 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=6622#comment-29130 When businesses are ready to invest some capitol in the American worker you will see a turn around in the ecconomy. When the 401k’s are drawn down and spent you will see a downturn that devistates families and businesses alike. I’m in the unemployment boat and when my money is gone and there is no job for me I’m going to ask myself the question of the ages. “To be or not to be”.

Schumacher, predicted the stages of a capitalist democracy that promotes the pursuit of giantism, it results in an oligarchy that dictates policy while forgetting the lessons of Henry Ford and others that understood that to a have a great place where smart guys can get rich you need to have a lot of people that are middle class to create viable markets.

Banking deregulation has led to an unhealthy concentration of wealth in the hands of people that risk our assets through their misguided innovations like derivatives on assets that claim extreme risk management that has never been proven in practice.

Lets go back to engineers and manufactures innovating and bans giving away toasters for new savings accounts.

Therefore, any pundits who bragged about a supposed upswing in the past few months were, quite simply, lying through their teeth. All that remains is for this to become a matter of record.

I am a big fan. I was thinking about creating my own blog about similar ideas for like-minded people. Some good ideas here. Thanks, I can only hope mine turns out as good as this one
American finance solution

There’s lots of green shoots out there. Wink, wink, nod, nod.

Let’s face it, Washington and Wall Street investment analysts have lost what little credibility they had. Nothing has changed since the collapse of the economy except the reflation with funny money. This house of cards is beginning to topple. Deep structural problems with our economic and political systems haven’t gone away, they have just been lurking under the fed’s loose monetary policies.

Who’s going to believe there are green shoots now?

I read this and say, “better hold off on buying that new computer.” Hence it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

We have all been Hoodwinked by CDO’s and now the Dog is chasing his own Tail… the end will come when credit cards are declared useless pieces of worthless plastic and our currency is re-set to it’s true valuation.

Isn’t another name for “liquidity preference” called “increasing savings” or “building equity”? It’s about time that Americans started moving away from a debt driven consumption model to a more balanced, sustainable and prudent savings-investment model. Otherwise, China will be calling the shots for decades to come.

I do think that most Senators and Congressmen might want to get their resumes updated for looking for a new job and most party leaders might want to resign before they get kicked out. Mr Obama might make it to the end of his first term if he walks the straight and narrow way.
