Forget irrational exuberance; ignore exorbitant privilege; dismiss the idea that The Fed's actions are for Main Street not Wall Street... the following image says everything you need to know about "the recovery"...



A chicken in every pot and a Rolls Royce in every garage... it's "fair"

Hot money fleeing from China.

They already bought all the available real estate on the US west coast, nothing but consumer goods left now.

Gonna be fun to watch the claw-backs once the wheels fall off the Chinese economy.

The car company has had nothing to do with aero engine company for 50 years.

They just share the marque.

He wanted them to spend the money. That was the entire point of NIRP. Didn't matter what they spent it on, it's out of the bag.

Expect a lot more NIRP, coming to a command economy near you.

Although I agree with you, those things weigh as much as a Suburban. The unemployed would need good coordination (or a couple black guys wearing hoodies) to flip dat thang.

Is it safe to park a Rolls in France overnight, for fear of a family of homeless moving in while you sleep?

I'd settle for a truck that wasn't rusted thru.

I am interested in buying your rusted-through truck for $2,000.  I will have my agent contact you to make delivery arrangements with the trucking company, as I live in Saskatchewan and can not pick it up myself.  I will be paying you with a bank-guaranteed money order, which is a very safe way for you to receive payment.  Thank you and I look forward to receiving your rusted-through truck.

I too am interested in your rusted out truck and as the founder of CYNK I would like to pay you with 1 share of company stock I've owned since I founded the company. We are a fast growing social networking company and since inception my company stock has grown 23,000% so your potential for the upside is unlimited. Based on today's prices you could potentially earn $326,600 for your rusted out truck. As you can see this is a far superior offer than NoDebt's. I look forward to doing bidness with you.

What? They produce about 40 cars a year? So, a 33% increase in the first half would be 12-14 more?

Not a big deal or even a WTF.

Edit: The company said it sold 1,968 cars in the first half the year compared to 1,475 in the same period last year.

OK, so I was a little off. Kill me.

Not possible.

I was visiting the Range  Rover production line the day the first US version rolled off it.

The line manager insisted I got into the very first unit ,with its QC sticker on.

Nothing worked that I tried out,seats, a/c, etc..,.

Never seen anyone so humiliated as that.

Naaa,  come on....    The inferior class NEVER (well, hardly ever) attacks the winning (I mean, superior) class.   They usually attack other inferior class members that have different features (eg nose, eyebrows, etc...).

Worldwide up 33%

Asia Pacific up 40%

Middle East up 30%

Europe up 60%

US ??

Guess US is irrelevant

With the other numbers (especially Europe) so far above the worldwide average, the US increase must be pretty low.  Either that or RR is losing customers in droves in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.
