You forgot sales of very large old books at 10 pence in london shops during winter when coal is more expensive to heat by the bucket at night.

You also forgot a new developing economy based on a few bits of firewood, crops and other considerations other than the almighty dollar.

And don't forget the towns filled with flea markets doing a boom in commerce against retail which has been strangled by the web of walmart for decades.

Also the workers have ceased to try and get a camel into employment by way of the eye of needle but instead started to live the way they want to by any way they can. Legal or not.

Wait till next months unemployment report. My take is it will be abysmal.  As was stated by a teachers union rep, on another thread here. 1 to 2 million teacher were layed off July 1st.  Their jobs are not coming back.  I tend to believe this number. Further evidence of it is the NEA just increased its dues by 10 dollars a month.  Fox said it is to support Obamas re-immaculation, I believe it is to make up for a short fall due to cutting so many teachers jobs. Fewer teachers mean fewer unioun dues.

A repost to another ZH poster earlier.

At his first press conference since being elected President, Barack Obama spoke about new job numbers and steps the government can take to help our struggling economy

 Black Teen Youths= Norwegians

When will our Mulatto in Chief speak out about the fuckin Norwegian flash mobs?? Sure he's a looter, but at least his color will allow him to call them out without being denounced for his honesty ahh.., I mean racist rant.

"I don’t want to be a prophet of doom -- and I really don’t believe that we are approaching doom -- but I think we’re going to slide into intensified social conflicts, social hostility, some forms of radicalism, there is just going to be a sense that this is not a just society."
-- Ex-National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski

The Norwegians already feel all is unjust. Just wait when the fake goobermint jobs and public assistances are removed. They just need one beating or police violence incident to launch Eric Holder and his people into full chaos.

Black people are not productive. You cannot find me one upscale black enclave anywhere in America. And I already know what you liberal hippies are gona''s because they're disenfranchised by the whites. Wrong. We have a black president so that shit doesn't fly anymore (which oddly comes at a time America is despised by the world, and is at it's weakest point arguably ever). Which brings me to my next point that what do you want to bet that even though the unemployment rate for blacks is ghastly (and gotten WORSE under Obama) that he still retains 99% of the black vote? That must be because blacks are immune from racial bias right? You'll never hear anyone talk about that.

And this was a nice story:

I didn't mention the forbidden "Jew" word that summons the mega junk storm from hell. Some subjects are just taboo, but I believe the "Norwegian" problem should be the first to explode. <Don't talk about it though>

If the everyone world has Neanderthal DNA except Africans and Africa has evolved to this:

I think I'll remain and ignoramuse. Egypt fell after the 25th pharaoh (the first mixed race pharaoh) after importing too many and the US is quickly on its way to the same fate. History is fascinating to those not blinded by the last 40 years of bullshit.

Sorry Zeno,

I know it's not your fault you missed the Neanderthal update 2.0 about 80,000 years ago.

You are that idiot who talked about the blossoming "Sharia democracy" in Egypt.. LMAO. Last I saw the military there was giving virginity tests to female demonstrators.

Free market capitalism has been subverted and captured by by the Ivy League Tribe's licensed criminals, and is now nothing but an algorithm-based version of three-card monte.

This is reality - Economics is not about mathematics; The game is about the bankster & politeer tribes abililty to continue servicing the global elite!

Systematically looting the wealth of nations is not a new paradigm...Same shit, different century!

Tribal warlords are only as rich & powerful as the thugs they employ and their ability to coerce the consent of the sheeple to rape, pillage & plunder.

The looting will continue until morale improves!

"The looting will continue until morale improves!"

That statement would be hilarious if it weren't so true.  It is exactly the mentality of modern economics.

In other words...

We will continue to print more money to debase what little wealth you have left unless you "buck up" and continue buying junk sh*t on credit.

No need to invade Canada. The biggest newest group of immigrants are US citizens, seeking the very things that were supposed to be their birthright, as stated in the US Constitution. Thank you. They will make VERY good additions to the citizenry, for they have lost those rights once, but never again. From one who is outside looking in - very little time left to get your s**t together! Almost too late now, in many respects.

Look at the spread of PHYSICAL oil prices to paper BENCHMARKS.  Perhaps the North Sea has less rigged (price suppressed) oil than the US.

    Can anybody tell me why there is a discrepancy in numbers here, between this report:


    June 2010, page 124, table 22A, col: June 2009 / row: Other precious metals:


    and that report


    June 2011, page 134, table 22A, col: June 2009 / row: Other precious metals:

    Because they are two different reports, on two different years. Why, what's your "???".

    But not with regard to the same data point of June 2009, which lies in the past of both reports and therefore shouldn't change.

    Is this maybe that some banks and CBs only file their numbers with the BIS after more than 1 year, so some of the PM derivative position changes didn't make it into the earlier report, but into the later one ?


    Or is this cook da books ?
