Nice find Mike.

This is a wake-up for many who think it cannot happen.

My view is that as soon as they attempt to soak up that almost USD$1trillion, the people will rebel.

It will not be a violent rebellion. It will be an economic rebellion that will first begin in the black market (no pun intended on Zimbabwe) as people defy the gov'ts attempts to control prices. We saw a single hen's egg being sold for Z$15 and a small pumpkin for Z$130.

After the black market gains the upper hand, suppliers will abandon the regular marketplace, opting for the greater profits to be had outside the controlled system.

It is that simple.

And "they" won't see it coming.

Like any train that has gathered momentum, it will not be stopped by a little bald man standing on the tracks holding up his hand as a stop signal!

Good luck with that, Ben!

"The Labor Department today also published its preliminary estimate for the annual benchmark revisions to payrolls that will be issued in February. They showed the economy may have lost an additional 824,000 jobs in the 12 months ended March 2009. The data currently show a 4.8 million drop in employment during that time."

"With that, what are the chances of seeing a double dip recession at some point along the way? Back in 1937 (when the economy was in the process of recovery from the great Depression), Congress and President Roosevelt decided the thing to do was to balance the budget, which had gotten terribly out of whack as the government ran large deficits and pumped money into the system just as it’s doing now. So, they raised taxes and created another recession which basically lasted until war production ramped up in the early 1940’s.

Now, the Obama administration is intent on making the economically suicidal move to raise the top tax rate by 10% as it lets the Bush era tax cuts expire. Popular myth is that those who pay the highest tax rate are Wall Street fat cats but the reality is that 75% of them are the small business owners, the ones who are responsible for the large majority of new jobs that are actually created in the country. Taxing them will lead to fewer jobs being created (as they will have less to invest) and of course, less consumer spending."

I agree 1000%. Most of our financial institutions are paper tigers...

Confidence stands so tall like a glass act and give it a little chip on its shoulder and the whole thing comes crashing down.

Inter-dependancy with institutions and countries are equally fragile.

The markets have been shown to be full of waste many times over.

The 2000 dot com boom when companies with £20m assets were valued in £bns.

Now its the financial institutions. Governments are the same - just look at our politicians.

Tories stating they'll get the unemployed back to work is a ****ing shock to my system in this era of high unemployment. Perhaps the bunch of wanking politicians should get the fat ****ing bankers back to doing real work and we may see some common sense.

Whole lot of them shambles in fake promises and explanation. Bunch of posers... Must keep appearances up... or we'll be discovered for what we are...
