I'd like an overlay where they have an arrow pointing to the top saying, "this is where we sold to you..."

Change is all you are going to be left with. Destroyers of wealth on an unprecedented scale.

Hockey stick graphs keep hammering down on one quote by Albert Bartlett over and over again:

"The greatest shortcoming of the human race is the inability to understand the exponential function." 

Money Supply, Energy Consumption, Population growth...etc...etc...

Yes Men struck GE today, for those who track the stock:

Edit: Andy and Michael were only advisors.  The caper was executed by US Uncut.  Funny shit, that.

Bu-bu-bu-but Ben says QE2 helps the Russell2000, I mean small business:

The Index of Small Business Optimism (PDF) gave up 2.6 points in March, falling to 91.9. The decline in the percent of owners expecting higher real sales and better business conditions in six months account for 76% of the decline in the Index. The index is consistent with recession-level readings. The decline comes after several consecutive months of a slow but steady growth. Hiring and future plans to hire built on February’s gain and remain the bright spot in an otherwise discouraging report.

 “It looks like everyone became more pessimistic in March,” said NFIB chief economist Bill Dunkelberg. “Or, perhaps, this is a ‘new normal’ and we are unlikely to see the surges usually experienced at the start of a recovery. Times are different; government, with new taxes and more restrictions, is a larger drag on the small-business community. Uncertainty continues to cloud the future while the government is persistently tone-deaf to the needs of those who create jobs and wealth. Today’s recession-level reading is, all in all, a real disappointment.”

GDP is little tweeting bird in tree. The maggots call him Terribullus Teradactylus Giagantus but in actuality it is sparrowus minimus crapulous extremus.

Gents, my simple point is that when institutional money perceives an inflationary environment in the near future, and they see the dollar dropping to confirm said inflationary environment, they run to traditional asset classes that have historically proven to keep pace with inflation. Value must be preserved.

Yes... Meat... he does have "trader" in his handle.

Inflation and deliberately engineered equity bubble.  But then you know that, so why ask?

We no longer have an "economy".

Thanks to 30+ years of financialization we now have a hyper-leveraged Ponzi casino masquerading as an "economy".

And people shake their heads and can't understand why 95%+ of the population are "losers".

Casinos have payout odds

Ponzi is all wall st.

Elites say 95% of population of losers is not high enough. They want 99.99%.

no one believes in substance, thus it is not necessary to provide correct or realistic the keynesians believe, inflation only happens when "expectations" are inflationistic....thus you have to rid your mind of inflation thoughts...once that happens, inflation goes away...therefore all economic analysis is of the pom-pom variety unless there is an evil person in power who needs to be descredited with a collapsing economy....economics is politics....and economists are frauds...

fuck you ben....
