A meaningless sea of numbers in a phantom economy. Do fundamentals really matter?

If work is measured in dollars, and the dollar is backed by a perception of value that is false... are we really working for nothing?

Minute Maid just to a doozy! The same product line just went from 128 oz. to...wait for it, 89 oz.

That with the same price point. That is a 30% overnight inflationary tax. Thank you financial system. Can you also keep trying to deflate my silver position? You are far too kind.

That's not it.  That is a photoshoped picture that has been circulating since Friday.  The beard, lips, and ears match a picture of him from 1998.

Than I've been hammed. I'm not a photoshop whiz so I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

So they are going to release the photoshopped one and stick to it. Good luck with that.

bin Laden is smiling. He always said his goal was to bankrupt the Great Satan. Little did he know our own corrupt politicians would complete the job much faster than he ever could.

Hey Tyler, when a diffusion index moves from say 60 to 58, it does not indicate contraction. As long as a diffusion index is above 50, whatever it is referring to is growing.  Therefore, the current message from diffusion indices is that growth in the mfg sector is a bit slower than it was. Hardly shocking given that manufcturing output grew at about a 9% annual rate in Q1.
