Comments on: Time magazine – No Depression? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/02/time-magazine-no-depression/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Catalog Printing | PrintPlace http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/02/time-magazine-no-depression/#comment-352777 Wed, 08 Oct 2008 19:21:33 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/02/time-magazine-no-depression/#comment-352777 Maybe I’m confused, but I don’t think the Chinese will be buying our bad debt, considering 1/5 of China’s currency reserves was in Fannie and Freddie’s bonds. The Time article linked to in this post says “China and America have come so close to merging financially that we can almost speak of ‘Chimerica.’” That’s scary. I guess printing more money is the best we can do for now.

McCain means change?
McCain supported Bush more than 90% of the time.
I don’t know many marriages with that level of agreement.
And we should judge the two candidates based on experience? How about the experience factor in the most significant decision either man has made since their nomination – that of a choice for vice president. Are you really comfortable with Sarah Palin standing a heartbeat away from succeeding the oldest first time presidential nominee ever ….. with a history of health problems?
But then you WERE joking, right?

And the only presidential candidate who can make that happen is someone who has enough national-government experience to know how the economy works, and enough experience with the world to understand international relations.

That someone is John McCain, who (despite those efforts to call him “McSame”) is no pal of the Bush Administration – look at how many times McCain has voted AGAINST measures that his fellow Republicans have supported. There’s no love loss between McCain and the GOP.

The alternative, the very green Barack Obama, would be a financial and foreign-relations disaster for the U.S. and for the world. He’s a smooth talker, but he doesn’t know what he’s doing.

Barack is simply a risky choice. Let’s hope the Americans think hard before stamping the ticket for him.

We always re-flate the economy by lowering interest rates and pumping money into the system which always leads to aggressive and risky investments because of the low interest rates and the need for more return on investment. This can keep going until our foreign investors decide not to fund our consumption and service based economy.
