    Do you agree with the book that loan defaults "cost the bank nothing except bookkeeping overhead, there is little of tangible value that is actual lost"?

    There are several additional problems in predicting/refuting this economy because of low growth under Obama, long standing trading problems and unneeded regulations. The more those problems are solved the more catch up growth we will have in addition to the normal 3-4% growth that we did not have under Obama.

    Historic, certainly predictable, market drop today.

    By default, the market must and is now dictating the truth of the matter and the chickens will be coming home to roost. Soon.

    If anyone thinks the recent fake protests have been too aggressive, get ready for real protest. When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose...they lose it.

    The talking heads were talking about the correction territory today. Heh heh.

    A 50% correction isn't outta the question. Huh uh. Could you imagine?
