Looks like GDP could rise rapidly from here on out.. The markets are always looking forward I understand... http://tinyurl.com/qhxpkyn

Markets are not looking anywhere, unless you have noticed that the general person on the street has lost his short-sighted nature and suddenly started going long gold. Then I would be asking where you are seeing these folks, because where I'm at they are rare.

It's much worse than that chart implies.  Half of "GDP" is government and transfer payments.

Real GNP stalled long ago.

It's actually much worse than the "much worse" you imply the chart implies due to the of levitating effect on GDP of out-of-control government expenditures... if you can follow me...

They are intentionally unreporting inflation (GDP deflator) and thus overreporting GD fucking P .

Heck... there hasn't been any real GDP growth at all this millenium since one lousy quarter way back in 2004...

I should remember to define terms.

GNP is gross National product - includes interest income and expense/dividends, royalties, etc. between nations.

Probably a better indication of financial and currency health.  Harder to fudge inflation and trade balance, so the government hates it.

Forgetfulness is a sign of hopium puffage.  Good man!  The government also hates metals, at least when in the hands of the citizenry, so it was interesting (enthralling actually) to watch gold and especially silver rocket skyward while stawks generally declined today.  History will say Ben Hanke Panke fumbled/puzzled the ball last week.

I agree with yourpoint but your use of teh word millenium (thousand years) retracts from the point. You should have used decade (10 years).

http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/05/24/who-is-the-smallest-gov... this guy has been running a tight ship. interest rates are at record lows and commodities have collapsed. the financially driven part of the economy has just be hit by the whacked by the Fed's "taper" debacle (meaning growth numbers must be taken down.) the Government has put itself in a position to act and act in a VERY large way should it wish...and i think it will.

The differences between qualitative and quantitative are rather large in economic terms. So large that most people can not grasp the meaning between the differences.

+1 for the wry sarcasm.

Stawks are taxed and will crash when they decide it is time.

From Daddy Bernanke-> "Remember, correlation is NOT causation, because I control inflation and unemployment."


From TrustWho-> " But Daddy, if you have no correlation, how can your models demonstrate causation. Without causation, you have NO control."


From Daddy Bernanke-> "Son, we use complicated mathematics that you could never understand, so just TRUSTME.
