Not to worry - we'll be out of this recession by the time it gets acknowledged. Or we'll all be dead from the zombies. Either way - nothing to worry about.
That's why I'm long cat food.
Friskies always puts a tiger in my tank.
Just keeps getting better and better..
Time to revise the master plan. Or should I say that it's time to revise the PR master plan.
I'll take a new Post-it note and start writting right away!
Just revising the teleprompter would be a good start.
if the teleprompter breaks before the markets, we might have a fighting chance at recovery...
What is that in real terms? -4%?
The market loves trade deficits and jobless claims!
They are forgetting to blame Japan? Well Japan will just have to work harder to get back in the blame spotlight!
Nuclear commission erases children's exposure data
Japan's nuclear watchdog has been found to have erased from its website, data on the results of thyroid checkups for children in Fukushima Prefecture.
The Nuclear Safety Commission had uploaded the test results carried out by the government in March. More than 1,000 children aged 15 or younger were checked to see whether radioactive substances are accumulating in their thyroid.
The key is that it is the revised number..no one reads that except us......the sheeple do not read past page 1......this is on page 30....
I can't wait to see him get reelected. Then I'll believe anything.
You should have reached the "believe anything" point when Bush got his second term.
Not too difficult to believe. His opponent was John Fuckin' Kerry.
True but who'll be the GOP candidate this time around? The John F@ckin' Kerry of the GOP.
We have no real leaders in power or running for power at this point in history.
After the debt ceiling charade, I'm thinkng the Boner will run.
The kind of leadership we need we’ll never get. Continued crisis means we’ll get leadership, alright, but probably not to many ZHers’ liking. Better a do-nothing president (and Congress) who allow things to work, than another set of potato heads who tinker and tweak to take advantage of the crisis. Crisis always (I’ll go out on a limb there) ends up justifying government growth over individual liberty, if not by TPTB already in power, then by a new group (revolution) purporting to fix things.
Start by acknowledging that various levels of government have taken on too large a role in the economy by virtue of promising (including regulating), taxing, borrowing, and spending for decades in ways that mean cutting any of them back will unsettle long established expectations, which if done in turn will mean severe recession or depression or whatever you want to call it for years until capital is reallocated and people and businesses begin to trust again that the system, once healthy, won’t be turned back into what it had become, a pinata for redistributing resources to those with the biggest sticks and greatest propensity for peeking through the blindfold.
Agreed. Great post.
The sad truth is that an alternate state always existed, but as you write, we may never again see that sort of leadership.
The less done by higher levels of government, i.e., the state level and up, the better shot we'll have.
maybe if we give the billionaires a few trillion dollars, they'll create jobs? ....
I'M GOING TO PATENT MY IDEA!! I'M SURE I CAN SELL IT TO SOME IDIOTS WHO WILL JUST DO THAT!
uhhhm, the Bernank already has that one patented. It's called "QE". He was almost on patent infringement territory with Paulson's "TARP"
Is this why futures exploded back to highs?
Futures always explode when margins on PMs get hiked. The elastic will snap us back to reality shortly.
I've loved hearing the phrase "second half recovery" for over 10 years now...I've been hearing it since working in the financial industry since about the mid 90's.
The best all time use of it was back in Jan-May of 2001. every a-hole institutional equity salesmen that called on our account parroted that jerked-off mantra every day for 2 full quarters. They trotted it back out in 2008, and now again in 2011. Man I love the Fin industry,...nothing ever seems to change.
what? markets gone nowhere in 12 years and you say there is no growth?? unfuckingbelievable
GDP -1%, record high foreclosures, unemployment, bankruptcies, poverty....hey I know lets have an election we'll keep our phony baloney jobs for sure!
DOW now up +200? Completely insane manic depressive markets, totaly broken. Probably end down -300 or so. Real confidence inspiring FED, great job!
ahahahaah, they probably know that the computers are programmed to buy like mad on a headline print below 400k. Futures were way down and now we get a 200+ point opening surge after the employment data hits. The buy volume at the open was incredible, all computers.
Chipolte is up $8.50. At least that BS stock Sodastream is down 17% and that brings it down to the high point of JUNE, f'n BS.
And now a few moments later Dow 80, wait a few seconds later Dow 100, wait Dow 85, wait Dow 110, wait Dow 85.
WTF IS GOING ON WITH THE BROKEN AS F MARKET!!! CAN WE JUST SHUT THIS BITCH DOWN ALREADY!!!
no recession! yay!
The whole thing appears to be riding on the RUT. It has not broken the weekly 200 day, yet the dow and s&p stay below. Pop the stops on the RUT and we get a ROUT fo sho.
the markets bounce again off a temporary sub 400k claims print that will be 400k+ next week, with a GDP revision looming?
just another day in schizophrenic paradise...
For mercy's sake we should just take these markets out back and shoot them.
Haha... Bipolar indeed.
Why can't we just move the zero three or four places to the left on the number line? Wouldn't that substantially improve GDP?
Obuma econmoron plans big vacation to help PCLN hit new highs..
watch him and his big ass wife live the good life ..rub the poor and soon to be poor white man's nose in his revenge for his father's tribe selling slaves to the west ( ironic so many american blacks think the white devil was out in the bush getting slaves)
That's got to be bullish. Right? I mean we need some excuse to print even more money and get total Fed holdings over $20 trillion.
No need to panic. GDP revision is on August 26th. We all know what comes before it.
Didn't I read here that .5% GDP was from squatters rent. Awesome, If we could just triple the amount of people to stop paying their mortgage, we should print at 1.5% for Q3
Q2 GDP revision will be to much lower than 0.9% -probably 0.0% and even negative. Government miscalculated the 400billion in govt spending - it will hit in next revision
and what will policy wonks say then - in the midst of reflation central bank expansion and guarantees we still have negative GDP? Many doors will shut..
i thnk silver is just waiting for my call options to expire before moving up again.
