This Time Is No Different - Reflections On 1929 Optimism

Tyler Durden's picture





 

When it comes to markets, the following clip, as well as memories of recent market collapses, highlights that it is usually brightest just before it's pitch black.

..."As the market floundered financial leaders were as optimistic as ever...more so"...

 One of the most astonishing hypocrisies of Zero Hedge is their shameless money grabbing from advertisers, EVEN when the adverts contradict their most deep rooted ideologies. Just today, I have come across adverts for:
 
1. Donations to the Obama presidential campaign
2. Brokerage services at Goldman Sachs
3. McDonalds franchising
 
In addition I’ve repeatedly seen adverts for “Forever Lazy’s”. I would never buy something so ridiculous, and I resent the implication.
 
My advice to ZH: Get your values in order and STOP taking money from adverts that contradict your stated views. You’re embarrassing yourselves.

Au contraire, it is great to be taking money from the people you detest and using it to publish stuff that is not exactly complimentary to them, isn't it?

MDB, disappointing.

As for the 29 crash the Fed pumped millions after the crash, only to see it crash again. 

Hoover raised taxes from 25% to 63%, spent the surplus to deficit, passed trade protection, Smoot-Hawley, and created agricultural cartels, kept oil prices artificially high, kept wages artificially high, and made a recession into the Great Depression. 

As for the advertisers I get “financially secure men” which is a total waste of advertising revenue in my case.  My advertisements should be, “Hormel Chili, 108 ounce can on sale $7.50!”  That would grab my attention.

I hope you're all ready for the "Gobal Minimum Tax."

It's going to be great for America. I know that because Vice President Biden said so and he would never lie. If any of you are against it, I'm going to assume you're an America-hating terrorist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSyxA-vdDYg&feature=player_embedded

Yep, America is economically choking to death on taxes and regulations. It appears that some of our enemies decided to save their wealth, avoid total take-over by the financial sector and preserve some semblance of free enterprise (sounds like America-hating terrorists to me) and we can no longer compete with them. The solution? Choke them to death with the same taxes that killed our economy. And if they don't accept it, we'll bomb their ass to smithereens.

Should probably add to that:

Equities are dead they will never beat cash, Businessweek 1982

The economy will never grow again, all is lost, early 1920s, 1932-1945, 1970s, 2000 through 201?

Doesn't mean you should pile into stocks today, but every time growth seems to be over for the economy eventually it picks up again. I don't know when this will happen though. Maybe it already started (doubt it), maybe by 2020.

Things will get better some day, but we probably need a really nice dose of inflation to clear out unpayable debts. generally this isn't good for the market, buy gold and wait?

A guy I knew when I worked had a mid life crisis, got rid of the wife and kids, and started shopping the Eastern European markets for a new wife.

I told him just to enjoy being single, but he wouldn't listen.

Anyways, he got scammed twice. Sent ALOT of money, flew over twice, and was robbed shortly after arrival.

He switched over to the P.I., got one on the line, treked 40 clicks into the jungle and brought her out.

Now he has a 17 year old girl in his house on a fiance visa that doesn't speak english.

I need to give him a call... I'm dying to hear the next episode of this soap opera!

If you think I'm that naive, then the joke is on you.  We all know MDB is an insider like Robo.  I just can't help but flame it a bit when he throws out these softballs. 

All the same, I'm glad to know yer lookin' out for my rep, dood (/sarc).

The ads on my page are from credit score companies, a local lawyer 100 miles away, and Zurich Gold.  Yikes

You guys get different adverts than I.  All I get are ads for prostitutes, Asian babes, Russian love, etc.  I never got an Obama ad, or a GS ad, or McDs.  It is just straight on hookers all the time on the margins of ZH for me.

Seems that Obama should also be in your group of ads given that he's also a prostitute.  The others?  Pimps...

I didn't realize people were really this retarded.  But I guess they are.  What a muppet.

My advertising is almost all APMEX. Hmmm, wonder why.

I admit that I have frequently browsed for Obama campaign donations and Goldman Sachs brokerage services. But I have NEVER looked at McDonalds franchising or Forever Lazys. That is just a LIE.

Nobody cares about the ads, besides, they only show the ads based on your preferences through your cookies.

The ads they show to me have text in cyrillic letters, should i object to it as well?

"they only show the ads based on your preferences through your cookies."

And if NO cookies?

I flush everything, yet I DO see shit that I have ZERO connection to.  Just getting some ad now for watches!  I don't own a fucking watch, nor do I wear them!  Worse is that I DO see Obama ads from time to time: didn't vote for the clown, never would (don't vote for ANYONE!); and, I don't mess around in any political sites (closest is here).

It's like this, adverts are based on a basic profiling of the people here.  I listen to radio stations (no cookies here!) that push diamonds and expensive vehicles, stuff that I have ZERO interest in- ALL based on reader/listener marketing profiling.  I know that clicking on shit would help ZH, but I struggle with engaging in hypocrisy.

I have no idea what you are talking about. All I see are ads for diesel pickups, ammo, whiskey, and dates with women that look like my hot wife.

Oh, and gold.

Hey, "MillionDollarBonus_"...Don't you know, it' the content of the post, that matters?

Most, tune into "super bowl" for advertisement!

Poetic justice. Proves how desperate these companies are to reach intellectual leaders. Forget academe, they have been sucking up to the elites for so long; they have lost the capability to know if something is true or false, right or wrong.

Ah... no, "they" DEFINE what is right and what is wrong.  And this is the REAL problem: those that attempt to impose their views on others, as this is primarily done for the sake of control of others.

I mostly get Gold and Silver ads. Gee wiz how much of this stuff do I need to buy before these guys will leave me alone :)

Cookie 101 my friend, where your cookies are there your heart will be.

With any luck the cookie algos will be giving me more of the Sugar Daddy ads as the fiat explosion really gets going due to all my Gold and Silver cookies.

In sum you can have Obama & Goldman Sachs, I’ll take Gold & Girls over them any day of the week.

I was getting ammo stuff not that long ago but they cannot sell ammo fast enough.  They don't need to advertise.

Now I am getting Eurail passes.  Who can afford Europe anymore?  Even the Europeans cannot afford it.
