Goldman Sacks was the 'Disintegration' tool used to kill the tax protesting middle class who pay the majority of taxes relative to their income. You hi rollers on this site could give a rats ass cause you all earn so much that sales taxes and income taxes no longer eat up your 'discresionary income'. So the DHS = Stasi = Secret Citizen Spy Agency. Just like Stasi were supposed to stop external terrorists and spys, DHS is to do the same but only spys on USA citizens. When was the last time a big fat machine gun toten bro workin fer DHS was nice to your skinny white ass. If little Napolean's DHS was really DHS they would be chasin wet backs jumpin into El Paso instead of hiring her fat gay cousins to work as fanny fingerin TSA agents.

Don't you sheep get it? Oh I see, the CIA took all the E.German Stasi files in 1990. So nobody can figure out the stuff in the book NDCIC about NYC Jew Mafia funding Bolshevicks for the Rothschilds Shell Oil Co to drill in Siberia against Tzars wishes. Jews were mostly all of Stalins Komizars who killed 60 million Ruskies. Jews were running the Stasi in Poland and E. Germany apparently according to reports from me shipmates from that neck of da woods folks. When Kaptin Krunch say Jew Mafia running the world, we back up what we say with facts.

Here is Stasi in E.Germany website showing disintegration is used to destroy someone secretly. The USA middle class has secretly been killed by the Jew Mafia cause we hate the Federal Reserve the most since it makes middle class pay the highest tax (total % tax to discretionary income ratio).

Fuck and then Burn Bernanke!

Ben Burnyankee say: "We wacked Jesus & JFK for Bank Bustin' and walked, and have a 40 foot container of Gringo Bar-B-Q sauce"

Read Best Bank Book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy":

Video shows CIA & LAPD Import Cocaine:

Kennedy was right when he said to bust CIA into 1000 pieces. They the hitmen for the Jew Mafia at the Fed Reserve (aka Goldman Sackers)

Exhibit 10 shows that real state and local tax receipts are now rising at a solid pace.

Welcome to the Alternate Reality Cafe.  Why even bother to read this shit?  Why not just take investment advice from uber-pigman Bill Gross who sagely advised buying munis earlier this week -- especially Cali munis?  Anybody watching what CMF did in response?

"The main reason is a slowdown in the pace of private sector deleveraging, which has become evident in a sharp improvement in the economic data despite the loss of growth support from fiscal policy and the inventory cycle.  The enactment of the fiscal compromise has also helped."


no need to comment....another Princeton phd speaks....

bulshit bullshit bullshit bullshit...

hope readers DO understand  its  just junk from so called economists


FEDERAL GOV DEFCIT... it will be worse next year


revenues will be up 3-5% y/y 2.1-2.2 trln $

, outalys +5% y/y , , so 3.7 -3.8  trln $.. so DEFICIT IS 1.5-1.6 TRLN $ AGAIN..

and in 2012 and 2013 too..


so  in 2 years 10 yy will be +5% and COST OF

ONLY SERVICING OF FEDERAL DEBT  WILL BE 700-800 BLN $ or 1/3 of federal budget

so FED will start print more ,, thus more debt , bigger rates,

ITS CALLED HYPEINFLATION SPIRAL,, soon next 1/2 of budget goes to debt servicing

,then 75% and then complete chaos, military hunta, 50% inflation, 7$   per gallon

and end of american civilazation...

i know!!! I'm going to have to pass this on to our State Treasurer....maybe there's a glitch in his software cause he's showing a really dramatic drop.......but ggoldman says its not happening so i guess its not!

Drag Racer's picture

Yes its all a bunch of BS. They are saying what they 'want' to happen and their reasonng why is just filler they expect you to buy... sudoku model... what a load.

Well, maybe I'm the one living in an alternate reality, thinking that we haven't seen the half of it yet. I've wondered many times over the last couple of months, with all the hype over 'the recovery' whether I'm the one missing something.

New all time high in gold. Happy new year.

bullish on gdp, bearish on employment. did the william dudley hit him over the head with a rock or do goldman honestly believe that the economic inequalities* that persist in the united states -- similar to turkmenistan, ghana and nicaragua -- are sustainable?




i suppose the good thing about living in a modestly free market economy is that idiocy of this degree can be punished through the market and that the sheep who buy the fucking dip will get wiped out. when the "too big to bail" crash comes (think 2016-2020 depending on the pace of the chinese tidal wave of cash -- converting their hoard of dollars to real assets and then getting the fuck out of the market for american debt) it will seem that the permabears of 2007-2011 -- who correctly identified the fundamentals -- were all wrong and that the clowns with the princeton doctorates were right. then the crash comes and the people who get bit hardest will be the ones who listened to the cramers. goldman already own fuckloads of gold. ever wondered why they call them goldman?

5. Will inflation move back toward 2%?


Of course it won't, because it is already way over 5%.


TheGreatPonzi's picture

I've laughed.

Indeed, you're right.

A French newspaper has recently published an "alternative CPI", based on true products (with the labels), used by most people in France. It shows the true inflation rate in food has been approximately 65% from 2000 to 2010.

It confirms what will happen in the USA: inflation in the products we need, deflation in the discretionary products (housing included).

Pretty informative, thanks. Are you in France currently as well?

MarketTruth's picture

Food inflation will be approximately 5% beginning January 4th. Producers have already priced this on to their wholesaler's sheets, so retailers may price it even higher to consumers.

Wheatman's picture

"The deficit is very large, and a credible plan for longer-term consolidation would be very beneficial for US economic performance.  But there is still a lot of room to maneuver for a government with the power to tax a $15 trillion economy whose debt service payments currently total just 1½% of GDP."

Credible? Won't happen. Higher taxes? They were just cut.

jan = moron

Sheeple (not high rollers) who trust Goldman Sachs... proof a sucker is born evey minute.

seriouisly; this `analysis` is a joke, right? 

inflation goes back to .5% and corporate profits grow by 15%.

And the GBP rallies to 3  SF on the discovery of unicorns breeding in the London subway.

So we get like 4-6 weeks of increases in retail sales and all of a sudden consumers are going to continue spending at this rate every week, month, and quarter for the next two years?  IMO, this burst of spending will be short lived and consumers will cut back in January and February.   Just because consumers went on a little Christmas binge this year doesn't mean that deleveraging is over now all their problems are permanently solved.

These are actually quite good questions to ask.
