Only on Wall Street and academic circles can +/- 25% revisions be an acceptable norm.

The rest of us are berated as incompetents for being off 3% in our projections...simply amazing.

An artificial recovery spiked by trillions of dollars of money printing is not a real recovery. It's artificial!

Nice!  My favorite line from the article: The unspoken agenda is to "redefine the 'cheap' in 'cheap drunk.'"

Oh, pshaw.  Spend the extra two bits per can and just get the Coors or Miller 24oz tallboys.

If $0.25 is pushing those out of reach, you should probably switch up to TILT or bum-wines.

A $2.50 TILT or two will level ya.

I've simply allocated a portion of my hooker and cocaine money towards my beer and cigarette fund. it was a sacrifice but life is a series of sacrifices...and I felt this one was worth it.

The utterances of these higly paid MBAs get ever more shrill and ridiculous.

 

As for the real world, here is a nice video of James Turk interviewing GATAs Bill Murphy:

Whew, the Baby Monkey just cost me an hour....

When I heard..

 

"Baby Monkey   Baby Monkey, riding backwards on a pig, Baby Monkey",

 

I became suspicious that this song was written specifically for this video.

That poor pig is just a baby himself but he's stuck in the monkeys needs.

Monkeys generally get several months of nearly uninterupted clinging to mother.

This is going to get about as wierd as bird imprinting when they grow up.

No Greg this is a case where only the good (intentions) die young...

Well, they [loaded you with debt], told you to pray
They built you a temple and locked you away
Aw, but they never told you the price that you pay
For things that you might have done.....
Only the good die young…

Was an aborted fetus ever alive?

No idea, but the current set of oligarchs sure do love that aborted fetus flavor.  Tastes like more money.
