I'm sorry Guys, but your country is going into deep shit, Buy Indian Government Bonds instead, great rate 6.75% :))

poor in that I gave it as much effort as it deserved...  getting off a plane anywhere in India immediately brings to mind the term "third world".  We have problems here of course, but at least the homeless are sheltered.   Bond yields do not a nice country make.

I've never understood India. It's just too complex. Laugh if you will - but even greater men than me capitulated trying to understand the culture of this nation. I would never dare to judge the people of India as you did. They've done astonishing things in the past - just think of the great philosophers, personalities they had and the great buildings and art. But there is a thing about India that frightens me - it's Pakistan. The future of Pakistan doesn't look good.

And if you ask me about the United States - I would never do the mistake to underestimate their capabilities. Yes, they will suffer - like we Europeans will - but they've shown in the past that they are able to overcome the difficulties, to take the heat and come back. It will take a while, certainly. But it would be unwise to think that the United States are finished for a long time. They also have very creative people - although I am from Europe, I won't join that trend to bash the United States.

Today, economic conditions are not stable. The adults don't have any jobs, so they are going for anyone that will hire them.

No, just reality...

India has what, exactly?

No offense, but "value/wealth" has only really, and will be more so in the future, about PHYSICAL RESOURCES.

Again, India has what, exactly?

If the US defaults it still has physical resources at or near the tops of most categories.  Yeah, meaningless when you're consumption levels are astronomical, but as the Great Unwind continues the consumption will drop (read "physical resources will last longer").

NOTE: The only sane thing that India is doing is loading up on gold (but the vaults will empty as it needs to import required resources).

Thanks for playing!

Nazi = National Socialist. Further, communism and fascism are merely two sides of the socialist coin. Regardless, however one wishes to define such things, it's all Statism leading down the path to totalitarianism. Bad for business. ALL the red bastards need to be locked up or deported.

Well, if victim mentality is the order of the day, there's no hope. It's not that the person wasn't skilled/valuable enough to be retained. It's not that the person didn't have the ambition/drive to become more skilled/valuable. It's not that 2-3 years on the dole wasn't long enough to accomplish something. No, it's the evil bankers and the man holding that person down. That dope really rotted the boomers's brains.

Especially since those unskilled brats are still living at home, the "kids" they are having to feed.  Soon, to be joined with gramma and gramps.....  Of course, Mom and Dad will be losing the house soon on McD's wages.  Then they will sell the kids into slavery and send the elders out to sea on the ice floes.  Seriously, last time I saw adults taking kids jobs, we were in the middle of a bad recession.  I remember as a young thing out of engineering college, not being able to get a job because seasoned pros were taking entry level jobs at entry level pay.

Ever stop to think that maybe the reason some of these kids are looking for jobs is because their family is going through tough financial times and need the extra money?

cosmictrainwreck is apropos(a sordid hippie whose mind got bent too far on the brown acid). Until you learn how to spell and punctuate with the tiniest modicum of respectability, you will not address me in any other manner than Sir, and you will refrain from questioning the educational levels of others.

All boomers are to blame. They kept wanting more more more on the backs of their children. They sold this country straight into the shitter for false promises. Every single one of them is guilty. Now, if you're not too busy blowing one of those wrinkly old hoses(I suspect you are the other half of snowball's team), please kindly fuck off.

Wish I knew how to +1 on the new site. They wanted it all and want their kids to pay for it. They sat around pushing papers their whole life and never learned any real skills despite knowing that their jobs would be replaced by computers that most of them were too lazy to learn how to use. They never saved anything for retirement despite decades of warnings that SS would not be enough to retire on. A whole generation of people that dont produce much of  anything except more paper to push around. I love my parents but my dad is over 60 and never even learned how to change a tire.

Those of boomers that aren't like the above know that most of their peers are to blame, and are probably more disgusted by it than I am. Those that take offense probably fall into the above category.
