And For Today's Primetime Event (No, Not Santelli v Liesman): Gary Kaminsky Wipes The Floor With Mark Zandi

Tyler Durden's picture





 

What is the only thing better than the neverending Liesman-Santelli Saga (7 minutes into the clip), where Rick is correct once again (check our previous observations on the huge spread between the SA and NSA U-6 number)? First runner up - David Malpass saying "I really think there is an improvement in the economy though you can't see it." But the undisputed winner is Gary Kaminsky telling administration lapdog Mark Zandi (who is trying so hard to be a shoe in for the Tim Jeethner replacement position) he is full of it (3 minutes into the clip). Luckily, a defensive Moody's "strategist" (of the same grating [sic] agency that downgraded Egypt on the Monday after the revolution) has tipped his cards:"here's an intrepid forecast for you, I'll put myself on the line. Next month, because of the weather effect we are going to get a 250k-300k print."  Ok Joe Biden. And when you are proven wrong again, as usual, can everyone please relegate your worthless ramblings to the same predictive compost heap as the ADP's irrelevant private payrolls number? And of course, none of this is relevant. The economy will certainly triple dip in April just in time to set the stage for QE 3 (pardon QE 2 Lite).

I didn't "make a wild guess" when I laid out reasons last week for an UE rate of 9%.

Obviously, construction was weather related. We're also seeing nice rebounds in manufacturing, goods-producing jobs and retail. So add in a strong rebound in construction, assuming the weather is better, and we'll easily get to 250k.

I really honestly thought CNBsC was close to shutting down, given its average audience of about 2,437 viewers, and then I remembered it's part of General Electric, and that General Electric has a revolving line of cheap dope with the Bernank, and that the ObaMao just named Jeff Imelt to a lofty place in his Administration.

So CNBsC is the new Hope & Change Propaganda Network, OFFICIALLY, and will never shut down, even if they lose 90% of their 2,437 viewers.

It all makes sense.

It's getting caught up in a complex web of deceipt. It's not really lying it's attempts to fake it till you make it.

Odd things about sociopaths is they try to create them. Like sociopaths don't honor obligations or debts. So the sociopathic governing bodies create a system that forces you to not honor obligations or debts simply by creating a system that is so mathematically retarded and stupid that it just can't work no matter what.

It's like the MBA bankers. Telling everyone not to strategically default and then they go and strategically default on their own building mortgage.

I mean harry used to be jonny bravo and not only did he lie about several calls he made he said he was studying to be a cpa but here he's back under another name saying he works in retail.

Harry just can't "keep it real". He's always going to claim more experience or understanding than he truley possesses and he'll never see anything wrong with it.

slow friday here in the trading cave so i was lying down on the couch after missing that weird spike up in corn.  On Bloomberg someone said something while I was in and out of consciousness about how this report was similar to 1996 and the next report, due to the birth death adjustment or something, BLS came out with a print of +750,000.  Now I do not see how that is possible but it strikes me there could be some surprise up, especially as bonds have just broken out of their consolidation to the downside.  I was on the floor then (1996).  One of only 2 times I saw the 30 year move limit, in that case down.  The other of course was when treasury announced they were not going to issue any more 30 year treasuries (up).  So while I think the debt-saturated ponzi-addled US economy cannot possibly rise above the water line (it is like the dead guy in weekend at bernies, and the Fed is Andrew McCarthy holding him up), it would be something if Mark IWannaJobInTheAdministration Zandi actually was right next month.

I would agree with Harry that the devastation is not all over the place, but certainly in enough places.  Certain segments are somewhat positive; such as anything connected to Obama's cronies/contributors; specifically WS and the banksters, and for some pockets of union activity.  And of course drugs and sex are fairly obviously recession proof.

So the conclusion with Harry is that he probably runs a unionized janitorial service on Wall Street that works hookers and blow on the side.

Despite market intervention/QE – natural market forces can not be stopped – only delayed.

When the market does reassert control – the reaction (the overdue correction) may be even more extreme due to that delay.

And some may erroneously refer to this as a Black Swan since it’s ‘unexpected’.

However they will be wrong because major market events can be predicted by some analysts.
