Hell no...I've been up all hours stressing about this little "situation" we're in. Who needs sleep when you have housingpanic.

I am not surprised.......but I am still seeing a hell of a lot of 'ignorance' out there Keith.

People simply do not understand the 'big picture'.

Willie Loman said...

Housing panic or the bailout?

I believe both are happening, but must cop to being a deer in the headlights the whole time - with good reason - bubble sitting savers are boxed in. (Anyone care to correct me on that?)

The incredulity is more of the angry variety.

Ah, this one is rich. AIG doesn't like showing fair value on their assets so they want to change the accounting rules. If only the world were this easy! I bet they were not complaining about mark-to-market when their assets were worth more than par value. Personally, I'd like to change income tax reporting rules so that it didn't look I made that much money because that would temporarily work out better for me.

March 18 (Bloomberg) -- American International Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Martin Sullivan is seeking to relax accounting rules that forced the world's biggest insurer by assets to write down $11.1 billion on debt securities in the fourth quarter.

I'm literally going to buy myself a big bag of popcorn and a sixpack, ready to bring out on the night (I'm in Australia) the US market crashes. Australia will follow the next day. For four years I have watched this credit bubble grow and grow, asset markets rise and rise. It's been agonising. Emotionally exhausting. But now I'm ready to strike. Debt-free and cashed up, I look forward to picking up high quality assets at generational lows. Patience.

Here's an experiment for HPers. Open up that Monopoly™ game box in the closet and take out all the money. March down to a Federal Reserve Branch nearest you and ask to meet with the loan director. Neatly stack the Monopoly money on the desk and ask if he will exchange it for a like amount in crisp, new $20 bills. You only need them for 28 days and you promise to bring every one of them back and pay the interest, cross your heart and hope to die.

They will of course laugh in your face and call a security guard to escort you out of the building. But friends, this bogus exchange, crap for cash, is exactly what the Fed's "auction facilities" are doing. Hide the weenie - Fed style.

My parents were married in 1931,he 21, she 16, so I grew up in a very frugal family and always heard stories about the Great Depression.

With all the safeguards that were put in place at that time I never thought that I would ever see a chance of history repeating itself.
Unfortunately, those safeguards have been voted out, not enforced, or ignored.

The clueless ness of people that I talk to even, say, six months ago is starting to turn to awareness, but too little, too late.

It seems that every couple of generations we to have "the basics" rammed down our throat. I just hope we survive this time.

This cannot end well!

I watched MSNBC last night (I know I know the MSM is all lies) and there was a show about an Arab desert-country called Dubai.

Basically these sheiks out there decided to reinvest their $100 a barrel of oil money into a huge real life Disney land.

10 years ago all the money was going to jihad, now with all the extra cash they are transforming the look of the land, from the tallest building in the world, to an indoor Ski slope despite the desert heat, they mentioned that people blast the AC with the windows and doors open etc.

Is all this possible?
Is this sustainable?

HPers…. How can it be that a people that do not produce anything and add no value to the progress of man kind,
No contributions to any technologies
No contribution to medicine
No contribution to art
No contribution to knowledge / education
No contribution to any kind of innovation
Etc. etc.

that they can be successful by just purchasing massive amounts of stuff?

Is the plan to simply survive by attracting tourist?

I mean; cant any other country do the same? If this nutcase in Venezuela decided to build huge entertainment centers would that then put all of Dubai out of business?

Or safer places like India or China

Are we looking at the future of empty soaring structures as a monument to the fake Global economical boom of the early 21st century?

This is exactly like the last crash I lived through.

For having such a weak dollar there sure are allot of assets chasing my dollars all of a sudden.

Additionally, the big spenders are now all saying they wish they put some money away as they scurry to make overhead this month and wonder how long they can sustain.


At the metals shop buyers and sellers are equal. In order to see more big upswings in gold we need A BUYING PANIC FRENZY.

Here in LA I am meeting folks from Arizona with car loads of stuff for sale that they can’t liquidate at home.

Europe depends on dollars for tourism, at some point they will see a very deep recession. For such a weak dollar why aren’t there more Euro tourists in America? I’ll tell you why, Europeans are in the same mess we are.

What is amazing is that the pretense of helping out the struggling middle class has totally disappeared. The Fed, an unelected institution, is destroyiing our currency and our standard of living by bailing out the people who made trillions in the past 6 years right before our eyes.

The lesson here is be responsible, save and live within your means and take it in the @ss. Lie, cheat and steal and when thing lead to ther inevitable conclusion you will be bailed out and get to keep all your ill-gotten gains.

"In February[2005], Moody's, the

be equity.

That meant companies could issue
hybrids to buy back stock without

investment bankers got busy
engineering hybrids to meet
Moody's tests for equity and

The answer is simple, declare the post Bretton Woods system bankrupt and that would freeze everything. They cant buy and sell. Then reorganize the system and go back to a fixed exchange rate system and nationalize the Fed.

We all know how much you've been screaming lately "FIRE! FIRE!". Well is time to show up and tell us why the DOW is kicking your ass.

Come on now Keith I want to hear all your various liberal explanations for the huge market rally today.

You better be right about this financial Greater Depression Crash that you've been talking for years, otherwise, you will be known on the Internet as the real DOPES!

I admire you for putting your reputation on the line but I must say this might just be the beginning of a correction and perhaps some stability to the financial markets.

Are we finally seeing a bottom?
Was all this financial melt down Greater Depression an illusion by Keith, hmm just an illusion? Come Keith let us know where you stand now.

keith said...

Dow is down over 20% for the year measured in Euros and over 40% measured in gold

In dollar terms its down about 10%

Someone check my numbers - too lazy tonight to get the exact #s I admit

If the dollar got debased another 50%, and the Dow was even for the year, would you think it was going fine?

I know this concept of dollar destruction is too much for most people, so let me try another example

In Zimbawbe, inflation is runing over 100,000%. That's right, 100,000%. So if you invested in their stock market and in their currency, and you made 10%, would you be happy?

Got it now?

And for anyone who says "but wait, inflation is only 4%", I encourage you to dig deeper into the inflation number the government is reporting. It's laughable. Shadowstats is a good start.

The only tiny positive about this dollar inflation is it's doing a number on my student loans which are locked in at the insanely low rates of a few years ago. At least I have the revenge of paying back my loans to these irresponsible idiots in reduced-value dollars. As far as the pitifully small amount of money I do have, it's been nearly impossible to hold onto it's intrinsic purchasing power. A bit of gold, a painfully low-interest CD, and that's about it. I feel you guys' pain. I'm just glad I never tried buying a house. The basic mortgage math was so unfavorable that I never even considered it seriously. I was jealous for a while... but don't feel that way anymore! Only thing I regret is not having a place for a substantial garden. Keep posting, this blog has been really educational and eye opening.

Keith,

Are you Peter Schiffs? I've heard this explanation a dozen times before, but the truth of the matter is currencies have always fluctuated. Sure short term the value of U.S. currency along with inflation is in a very bad position, but that doesn't mean we can't rebound in the long term if the right levers are pulled. Sure some people and businesses will be hurt when this all plays out but it doesn't mean a Greater Depression in the making. I see it more as a recessional bump, that will come and pass within a two year period at most.

The fact of the matter is that is only a matter of time before the European Union and other nation economies begin dropping rates to counter the high price of exporting that will start to hurt businesses, as I'm sure its already begun too.

This will have an upward evaluation effect on the U.S. Dollar against the Euro.

I think you under estimate the size and diversity of the U.S. economy and to which much of the rest of the world depends for their economies to strive. The fall of the U.S. Dollar is not an American Problem, it is a world problem, therefore, it is ludicrous to think that the world will allow this to happen.

Sure, we're going to listen to your forecast. This from an idiot who didn't see the housing bubble dropping on his head, didn't see the gold skyrocketing, the dollar collapsing. Things that we've been warning here for years, while positioning ourselves.

Now all these fools want to look smart by denying the huge financial collapse in front of them, just because the PPT faked a rally today. Woohooo, the financial meltdown is over! Kudlow said so! Cramer is telling every sheep to buy financials! How many times have we gone through this since last year?

Seriously, why would we pay attention to a financial imbecile like you, troll? I bet you're in deep sh!t with your finances and the only thing you have to say is: "the fact of the matter is, the fact of the matter is...." is that your new Republican expression to make you feel smart or you got that from the bozos at "Fast Money"?

Wanna a forecast? Huge nosedive in the coming days to fleece the sheep and erase today's phoney rally. Just like happened last week, and the week before, and the week before that...

Fundamentals haven't changed at all, thus cutting rates won't do a thing, just kill the dollar and create inflation. Funny, the cheerleaders are not able to see the evidence right in front of them, to notice that the PPT came around 3 PM, scare sh!tless that the market was heading down, even after the useless rate cut. Go ahead, look today's graphs and pay attention to 3 PM. Do you see that straight line going up when the market was sinking? That was PPT trying to fool sheep like you. Oh I forgot, you think that PPT is a conspiracy theory...

What I can't believe is how short of a memory the market has. Dow up 420! After what happened yesterday.

There are serious problems in the Alt-As. Just 'cause GS and LEH did OK doesn't mean that their counterparties to their hedged positions are solid. It'll all come down to the underlying assets... and who knows how to value them yet.

Also, did anyone see the volume in SPY? It was though the roof. 334.41 Mil. That's like 1/2 the shares outstanding. Huge blocks. More unwinding?

If you get ONLY subsidized student loans (and refuse the unsubsidized), it's 0% interest until you graduate.

The gold I got should be able to pay it off eventually.

We're on the 1990s Japan track... except that Japan was an export machine, so its currency stayed stable. The crispy crunchy Americano nation produces nothing but debt. We will end up being the Brazil or Argentina of North America. (Heck, both the USA and Brazil are just over half white now!)

One of my acquaintances not only bought a house in 2003 with only about 10% down, but did so without paying down any student debt. Between her and her husband, they have $100,000!!! I'm expecting it won't be long before they're underwater. I couldn't believe they would put themselves up to service even more debt. It's an insane mentality, debt becomes the new wealth! What, you don't *own*! You don't want to be a debt slave? You must be poor scum!

Wish I would have gotten all subsidized loans... but my parents *appeared* to make too much money. Plus I didn't know better, straight out of high school, with one crappy economics class that taught me NOTHING useful in the real world. It was all pick random stocks, follow the price, voila look how much money you can make! Let's not cover budgeting or the basics of loan calculation so you can avoid being reemed once you're on your own! Had to learn that using common sense as a guide. Glad I can do math, at least they still teach that (kinda).

Gold and silver seem to be taking a header, stock market looks like its headed for a boring day. Guess no one gets the 'big picture'. What happens if no one ever does? I was always with you guys on the existence of a housing bubble, and the inevitability of a housing correction (thats all it is in most areas--its a crash in ridiculous places like so cal of course). And sure that will cause a recession. But integrating all this into your long-standing end-of-the-world prophecies is just silly. This USD devaluation seems good to me--could stop the flow of jobs overseas and reduce the real debts of both citizens and our government. Only losers in the long-term will be folks sitting on USD in accounts earning 3%.. the same people who always lose.

Speak for yourself because most here have been preparing for this meltdown and had invested in precious metals, foreign currencies, and commodities wayyy in advance. So you shouldn't be talking to us about 3% returns.

Temporary drop in gold and commodities? Totally expected because the financially f*cked has to sell something to feed their children. Schiff wrote in his book about this expected drop more than 2 years ago. Only you and Bernanke think that dollar devaluation is a good thing. Two geniuses that didn't see any of mess coming, while we've been yelling from the top of buildings for years.

But do like all the financial imbeciles, just deny the obvious until you believe is true. Or continue to say things like, "we might have a recession but that's not the end of the world". At least DOPES! is funny.

These are the same people who were saying, not too long ago, that a recession was improbable or that housing bubble/bust was a ridiculous idea. Now they're changing their story to accommodate their stupidity, while denying that they ever said it. We notice how those financial morons come here, trying to troll a little to numb the pain, cheering fake rallies, feeling stupid because they're always wrong and probably in financial despair. But we HP'ers don't hold grudges, so stick around and you may learn a thing or two. And please please, don't forget to check under your bed for terrorist bogeyman before you go to sleep.

Knee-jerk angry reply to anyone who doesn't buy into your permanent doom-and-gloom mentality???? I never said that you, me or anyone else was or is holding USD, only that holding USD in interest-bearing accounts is a bad idea. Sounds like you actually agree. Although your fearless leader just called for converting everything to cash, so maybe you should change your mind?

I feel like I am in the twilight zone. Everyone around me is oblivious to what is happening. The stock market is being artifically propped up. There is no way the market keeps holding up at the levels it is without manipulation. Does anyone agree with me? The things that are happening are UNPRESEDENTED IN HISTORY. Am I the only one that sees this???

No, you are not the only one. Is lonely being the one that sees eh?
