Obama just mushed the market. he just made 250k the line in the sand. Anyone making more than that just decided to get paid in cash from here on out.

OT: I just read through the entire JCP earnings report and SEC docs. JCP is an epic fail, and Ackman is significantl long in that turd?  More Pershing Square redemption officers will be needed soon.    JCP: another name for zombie retail going comatose.

Without any new money (debt) being injected into the consumer economy revenues are going start drying up.

As for increasing exports I am sure that gold to China is near the top the list. (yoy%)

The next export is any manufacturing job, so that Obamacare worker Tax for medical coverage can be avoided.

Lets really bust it and declare every company must provide 9 paid sick days per year per employee...  Oh wait, Milwaukee already did that...

And they made it mandatory that part time workers all get 6 paid sick days per year per employee, so you can't even hire them part time anymore...  28 hours or less will become the normal work week per job, but not in Milwaukee...   Or any other city in this communist country...

Forward, bitchez!

BTW, I love how the fascists are crying about how they want to move to Canada. Right.

I have a few better, more fitting, options for them: Iran; Afghanistan; much of Africa (they hate teh gayz there, too). That would help our export numbers for quite a while.

America: Love it or leave it!

Freedom, baby!

GDP needs to be stopped being used.

That would make it too hard for Central Planners to convince everyone that are actually needed to prevent the world from falling apart, so they will never advocate it. Notice that right along with the Government taking over education, the use of GDP became abusively the norm. At least two generations have been subjected to that crappy useless metric.

Eventually we will run out of gold to export.

Now when we drop a bomb via a drone in Pakistan, does that count as an
"export"?
