    While bernanke lies about recovery here is the sad reality

    industrial production is on the bottom. Just in the past 24 months it is down 12.9% and flopping on the bottom.

    bernanke says it does not matter, but it does. People will not start going to work until industrial production starts improving in strong measure.

    Bernanke says that spending is 70 percent of the economy now that we have had this collapse in the industry of america, but how will spending come back when jobs are gone?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    bernanke is manipulating the market for his good friends in the big banks like goldman sachs. Corrupt as hell.

    Below is the reality of existing home sales..

    Existing homes sales

    jul 09 5.24 m
    jun 09 4.89 m
    may 09 4.72m
    apr 09 4.66 m
    mar 09 4.55 m
    feb 09 4.72 m
    jan 09 4.49 m

    dec 08 4.74 m
    nov 08 4.45 m
    oct 08 4.91 m
    sep 08 5.14 m
    aug 08 4.91 m
    jul 08 5.02 m
    jun 08 4.85 m


    they bounce around from 4.5 to 5.2 million all the time. Nothing new about jumping around on the bottom the thing he should have pointed out was that house prices were down again last month? That is an indication that even more mortages are under water and people will default on them in increasing numbers.

    They were down 15% in july, and a large percentage of those houses were sold at forclosure auction. So bernanke tells the public that house sales are soaring and that shows that we are in recovery.

    The reality is that house prices have fallen yet again and there are even more foreclosures coming!

    Lies, lies and more lies!

    We will squash 'barth right here and now. Provide a link. He is also incorrect in that industrial production is the prime engine of this economy. Gently put -- get the horsecrap out of your moth, barth.

    Pathological lying sack of shit! I have never said that industrial production is the prime engine of this economy. Why post an obvious lie like that?

    Insane low IQ buffoons like you post on here with some frequency hiding behind your moniker, but you never know what you are writing about, so shitheads like you just lie all of the time. Go sit in the corner and play with yourself.

    Industrial Production is the indication of Industrial Production. It is no more and no less than that. Idiots like you can not understand that to create an increase in money circulating in a service sector economy, it helps to put people back to work in INDUSTRY. Not having all of those industrial jobs makes it very hard to build the economy. That is the reason why it is still tanking.

    You should double check your numbers...if you've been keeping them on a monthly chart, you've probably missed the revisions...your numbers don't match up with what the FED currently has (except for the last few months). You're about 1.1 percentage points off of what the data states. Oh, and I thought you disliked seasonal adjustment, so why are you using the seasonally adjusted numbers? There's a large difference...2.5 percentage points between the unadjusted numbers and your figure.

    Here's the historical data (the percent changes aren't given, you'll have to do it yourself, or ask nicely and I'll post my results) Seasonally adjusted and Unadjusted

    ETA Ok, found the seasonally adjusted percent changes HERE

    AI my numbers agree with the revisions announced by the government just before the release of the new reporting month. To get updated June numbers, you go to the July report as it comes out.

    If there is an additional minor revision six months later I probably do not have it, but these numbers paint a true picture of what is really happening to the economy regardless of the official lies and deception.

    To get any month as it was last announced or revised, you can get the info from the Yahoo Financial site I linked to.

    As regards seasonally adjusted numbers, I simply do not trust the seasonal adjustments to the number of people who filled out unemployment claims. Saying that 200,000 people do not count because they filled out their UI claims in the wrong season is insane, and the government is insane for trying to foist that kind of crap on a gullible public.

    Only anally retentive people would believe that people did not do what they really did because it does not jive with traditional season averages.

    Hell, of course it does not jive. We are in a Depression! It is turning into a horrible Depression.

    Yes about three times now. My net is a loss, though. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Everytime I see propaganda campaign by Geitner and Bernanke I cover. Those guys can sway the market with their imagined "recovery" talk.

    The only thing they can point to is a decrease in the rate of collapse.
