What about the USA?
Hollywood's greatest production of the year, maybe of the century, the US presidential Election. Get your popcorn, tickets are free - the circus is in town. It's the greatest show on Earth!
In a debt-fueled economy, it probably pays to keep quiet about any hard, moveable, assets.
The answer: to be horrible weathermen.
In retrospect, it is hardly surprising that two years ago in a head to head between Joe LaVorgna and the world's most famous weatherman, Groundhog Phil, the Deutsche Bank cheerleader was solidly trounced.
This guy is either very stupid or has no conscience left...
But me thinks - it's both...
Either way, ZH revealed him for what he is...the back end of a donkey.
They are paid to dupe people into believing what is real. I.e Paul Krugman.
If Joe LaVagina were a WWE wrestler he would be called "The Weatherman". Bringing loud noise and bright lights where ever he goes!
Joe Lavagina walks into an almost empty stadium. Only Paul Krugman sits in a chair, eating a large buttered popcorn in a dimly lit arena.
"I am LaVagina and I bring with me the science of economics! Due to weather problems the economy has fallen short of expectations!"
"Yippie!" Cheered Paul Krugman.
"But we do have forward guidence - based on stock market prices and manipulated employment records - up for the next 20 quarters!"
"Well said!" Screamed Krugman.
Then, in a flash, LaVagina ran off of the stage, only to be see next quarter when he would spout the same bullshit.
obviously, he's over tipping his barber...
LaVorgna is on zerohedge... his handle is FONESTAR..
He looks like Mr. Potato Head not much the barber can do
Hmm Groundhog barbering...
That's a dis to the fine charisma of people like Superstar Billy Graham:
I'd invest whatever the hell he said I should buy. Actually I hocked my TV after hearing this...
A 51% win/lose ratio??
Wow, imagine the possibilities you could reap with such an advantage.
aren't millions minimum wage on wall street?
Why not make up the low spread on a high volume of predictions? ;)
I remember when Alan Greenspan came out to the media not too long ago and said the economy was "Broken" Suddenly Krugman swooped in and attacked him in a separate article saying Greenspan was the "Worst" FED chairman ever...
This happened late last year.
Krugman tows the banker line, nothing more. His WHORENESS runs deep.
The perception deception.
just call him what he is: DEEP THROAT
That works on so many levels....
This guy LaVorgna looks like he is wearing a beaver on top of his head. Maybe he should have done a deal with Punxsutawney Phil and just let Phil sit on his head and whisper in his ear.
The North end of a donkey heading South or is it the road apples he left behind.
All economists at these tbtf institutions are sell outs. they will write whwt their pay masters tell them to
Young Joseph is a douchebag
Bingo Groundhog Day. They are paid propagandists. TPTB tell them their plans. The Economists are paid to reword it in a form that pretends to be good for the public. "Ve haf scientific proof zat you vil be richer if only you are poorer!" ( And apologies to all people out there who speak English with a thick German accent ;) )
"We let you borrow more money. Now it is "more affordable".
If Marie Antoinette were alive today, she would not allegedly have said, "Let them eat cake". The media would proudly be proclaiming she said, "Let them eat crumbs." Proof? "Trickle-Down Effect". I never understood how they got away with that one. It sounded loud and clear to me, so in case there is anyone out there that still doesn't get it, forgive me while I say it again :
"TRICKLE DOWN EFFECT" = "LET THEM EAT CRUMBS".
Why did the media never pick up on that??? Someone should have said it yeeeeeeeeeeears ago.
The real economists are unemployed. The employed economists are propagandists.
Someone needs to seriously spam his twitbutt account.
Na, he's just a Douche Bag!
There is no "either...or", it is all "no conscience left".
Economists are horrible on purpose so that you need JP Morgan and the FED for guidance.
Their job is to be the fake guy who wins in three card Monte while the mark is watching.
Hey, he offers this unique insight for FREE.
In the land of the blind (this guy) the one eyed man is king. Keep both eyes peeled.
I thought Wall Street controlled the weather? Doesn't Blythe Masters have the remote control to move a commodity markets with a push of a button?
LaVorngna looks like a semi-grown white Urkel.
Look at the head on that potato.
Mom needed a few extra stitches after pushing out that alien.
haha. Love it. Kinda like Geitner and Beavis.
I bet he liked to burn FRN's and chant Fire, Fire, Fire!
While using it as TP.
For his bunghole.
The new Al bRoker...weather reports and bad investment advice, all in one!
You guys missed this one:
Joseph A. LaVorgna @Lavorgnanomics Feb 19
Jan housing starts fell -16% (880k) while permits were down a lesser -5% (937k). Harsh wintry winter was clearly a factor dampening activity.
Harsh wintry winter? WOW
He sounds stoned to me.
The groundhog is cuter and has more personality as well.
They both bite.
If he loses his job as an economist, he could always get a job as a drive-in movie screen...his forehead is more like a fiveandahalfhead.
Silly me ... and I thought it was to give cover to theft and fraud under the guise of superior and reputable education.
LaVorgna goes to the gun range. His first shot is 5 feet left of the target. Second shot is 5 feet to the right. He yells "BULLSEYE!"
....and he sticks out his hand and says, "Pay me."
Why for did ONLINE retail sales fall 0.6% in January.
weather froze the bits running through the internet.
