"never worked a day in their life and buch of idiotic Harvard BJ idiots running this country"
Yep, manipulating language for personal gain.
Hang em high...or Reno's fate:
But does that mean SS gets an increase next year? I imagine there a lot of pissed off seniors right about now two years and no raise while prices skyrocket.
You can almost make out their vocoder-assisted cries...something about "CPI, CPI, a bump like that is like spit in your eye"...I dunno...the colloquialisms are difficult to parse correctly when their dentures are loose.
This is the same CPI that "Ryan's Privates" vouchers would be indexed to, right? Like the horrible twisted love child of fiat and coupons.
Or groupon if you're really fucking perverted and shit!!!!
Morgan Stanley fund fails to repay $3.3 bln debt on Tokyo property
Biflation, baby. Inputs will keep rising while the real economy continues to deflate (along with housing and employment and real incomes).
It's not stagflation (like in the 70s). We should be so lucky: because back then incomes were rising nearly as fast as prices. That set off a war on incomes. That's called supply-side economics. And it has worked: real incomes have declined since 1981. That's 30 years of declining buying power. That's what set up the crash and depression since 2008
me thinks you are on to something there
things you don't need go down. the stuff you gotta have to live go up. stagflation.
i got the 1040 blues
Which way does real estate go?
Well they handed over the keys to Blackstone
Why continue to pay on a building that has declined in value and my soon be uninhabitable due to radiation?
I expect to see more of this. It's just starting to get interesting
It's going nowhere but down. It's been nationalized. No one actually "owns" property. You rent it in the form of property taxes and they can seize it via eminent domain.
Move those factories from Japan back to the rust belt of the Midwest, time to stop all this Tom Foolery and come back home
Ummm....let's build new factories instead.
Right, because union-friendly rust-belt states are so accomodating to business...
Just how fucking stupid are people?
It's mainly ROBOTS making shit, making shit that people CANNOT afford.
Yeah, let's move a bunch of old paradigm shit to the US so that we can, well... people just can't seem to let go of stupid-assed fantasies.
Easy Seer - just having some fun this morning. Besides the new hope and change for Detroit is Amsterdam-inization: http://www.freep.com/article/20110415/COL24/110415011/1081/col/Carol-Cain-Prostitution-pot-legalization-could-make-Detroit-attractive-Fieger-says
Quote du jour:
"Don’t let any self-appointed, self-righteous person say we couldn’t do it,” Fieger added. “The city of Detroit couldn’t get any worse.”
Mommy why is the gym teacher making me do 500 situps a day and 2 hours of walking in stripper heels?
Prices the same as back when the unemployment rate was 4% and everyone was drunk on excessive liquidity.
No wonder there are so many on wealth stamps
The market is not pricing in QE3.
It is pricing in an economic boom, led by the U.S. consumer.
That is why BIDU is trading at $150/share and AAPL is at $340/share, not Newmont Mining or Goldcorp.
CANSLIMers aren't supposed to have opinions. They just read charts and look at earnings. Keep your economic analysis to yourself because it's retarded.
"led by the U.S. consumer"
Dream on, Sunnyboy.
I think he was being scarcastic...and yes, with that data, and others, were will it go?
No there was no sarc there. Robo sees skittle shitting unicorns as far as the eye can see. We're only limited by our pessimism. Sometimes I wish I was on as much Prozac as him.
This can't be right. Plosser was just on CNBC rubbing oil on Liesman's hairy back and blowing in his ear saying inflation is not a problem.
You're tickling me..hehehe
You gotsta soothe...or he gets all "Ballmer"ed up and just shits every-where.
Liesman reminds me of the prototypical little corporate toad running around getting the boss coffee and agreeing with everything he says. I'm convinced Liesman actually believes he has market influence because of his brilliance rather than his Hoover like suction power.
good observation. i've seen guys just like him in real time when working for a big outfit. he's galling.
He's the poster child for obsequious. They should compile video clips of him to use for the definition of obseqious in the 27th meriam webster dicionary.
Crude and copper getting hammered.
Do you get paid by the post? Maybe an extra squirt of oil in the servos?
Slinky down the staircase... Getting excited about the upward arc without seeing the trend is a bit myopic. I seem to recall that over the longer-term stocks have sucked big time.
(p.s., how's GOOG working out for you Robo?)
Don't you get tired of the Junks? What is it some kind of badge for you. How can you look at what's going on right now and feel anything good about it? We have a $1,000,000,000,000+ deficit and they're fighting over a lot less zero's than that and celebrating that they hammered out an agreement. For less than a percent of the deficit. Doesn't that scare the shit out of you?
Such stupidity. Price action in the last month:
Time to hang up the trader's hat, chum. And I mean rotting fish used for feeding sharks, not friend.
money printing induced inflationary crack up - we are living history as it repeats itself
Prices keep rising. It must be because of the strong economic recovery and organic growth demand. It must be true because Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy said so...
The index seem releted to the BDI until 2-2009, after it goes alone. Really possible a so different trend?
ZH posted a great chart awhile ago showing how (and why) the BDI chart is so out of wack with prices.....The BDI reflects demand (which is very low) but the rising prices reflect inflation and inflation protection results.
I'd be interested to hear other thoughts.
Theyre unable to pass along higher costs to the public. For now companies have to mop up that cost themselves, like a pressure cooker it will blow margins to hell.
Yes, I agree, is there a way to undertand the difference between the increase due to quantity and due to prices, and relate the first with BDI?
An Empire Manufacturing Index deflated at gld price?
the whole cnbc team always bends over for any Fed Res rep; you'd think they were li'l kids getting their first taste of candy...and don't get me started on that Sick Rantelli !!
