    why is everyone pretending the u.s. economy is getting stronger? the Government (Fed) have been printing up money like there's no tomorrow trying to keep the system from imploding and it is barely working. there is no recovery we are in a depression. :cuckoo:

    It's all going to come crashing down at some point, and you are absolutely correct. There is no "recovery." It would take more money than they could print to even make a dent. The pay back for all the spending is yet to come, and it ain't gonna be pretty, and there isn't any stopping it. Bad times are ahead, much, MUCH worse than what you're being led to believe.

    in their defense, the gov can't create a panic

    what they could do is be open & honest

    but i wouldn't hold my breath on that....

    And they have been there for how many years?

    They were virtually zero long before the recession officially started.

    A contraction is necessary and will happen. The economy is far too bloated.

    The government's job is to prevent it from happening everywhere, all at once and send the whole she-bang into a tailspin. All things considered, I don't think the job they've done is so terrible.
