The way I see the dollar bouncing back is if we in this country start using an alternative fuel source.Maybe some of those repressed technologies that have been kept under lock and key by large energy corporations that bought up all the patents.We also need to start manufacturing again;we have become a service oriented nation now.

I SOOOOOOO agree with you! I also think it goes beyond simply finding a new fuel for our cars and trucks, it is about an alternative energy economy across the boards. Wind, Solar, Biomass, Hydro. All these technologies would be a serious BOON to the American economic world. The recreaion of manufacturing in this country, the creation of jobs, of energy independance, of every sales.

On the plus side its good for the indian economy. On the negative side, it means that the dollar is in worse shape than previously predicted. I wonder if the american economy will bounce back anytime soon, if at all.

Actually, I think what you just wrote better qualifies as "THE BIGGEST LOAD OF BS I EVER READ". And BTW, why are you screaming?


YOU MURDERED A 2 MILLION PEOPLE IN IRAQ FOR OIL
CREATED ISLAMIC TERROR THAT HAS LED TO DEATHS OF MILLIONS


Your source for this ridiculous propaganda, al-jazeera?


IMPOVERISHED MILLIONS THROUGH EXPOLITATION GENOCIDE AND STARVATION


Now this sounds like it came from the communist manifesto. If so, T&C rules say you should have given credit to the source.


[B]fact is that most americans are arrogant , and use propanganda to hide their war crimes against humanity[/B]


Ah ha! You know most americans then. At least know them personally and well enough to know that "most" of them are arrogant. In reality, you are showing nothing more here than the geo-political version of penis envy.


have you ever seen journalist John Pilger 's documentary "War on democracy , do see it and , you wil realise how USA has murdered millions in latin America and across the world


YouTube, first place I'd turn for real knowledge after checking out al-jazeera and rense.com - NOT.

(guess that makes me "arrogant", as well).

no exagerrations firstly ....
here is a link of american state terrorism in past 20th century :

Altogether, the terrorist U.S. government and military have directly slaughtered literally millions of civilian people in the Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Russia (the civil war, 1918-1920), Japan, France, Germany, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Panama, Grenada, Libya, Lebanon, Iraq, Sudan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Bosnia and Yugoslavia.

In addition, the terrorist U.S. military and CIA have trained, armed, funded, provided intelligence and direct military support for fascist puppet-regimes and right-wing death-squads around the world.

America's servant-states have carried out appallingly vicious campaigns of state terrorism. With the direct support of the U.S. government they have committed the torture and genocide of additional millions of helpless, civilian people in Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil, China, the Philippines, East Timor, Indonesia, the Congo, Angola, Zaire, Mozambique, Palestine, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Iraq, Pakistan and Iran.

Ah ha! You know most americans then. At least know them personally and well enough to know that "most" of them are arrogant.

As peak oil is reached if we were off oil and using alternatives than we would have more of a bargaining place at the table again.Other nations would be looking for alternative sources as well.This will start happening in the long run.The current need for oil is to great and not enough to go around....in short it is slowly running out.In case anyone is interested in some suppressed technology info, here is a good site.

so how will this happen? how will the dollar bounce back?


Natural cycles do occure, and if we happen to enter a recession it would not be the first time??? .. In fact from 2000-2003 we where in a recession. Some would call it that anyways.

Either way, my point is just because the currency slides does not make it obsolete, for instance, if everyone goes to the Euro .. The Euro becomes to over valued it then depreciates. But like the question I asked, as our currency is replaced, will people come back later? No one in the markets is even talking about it let alone what ifs.

And now you are showing how arrogant you are by judging an entire nation of 300 million people by what you call the white boy's in your own cousins neighbourhood called you. I'm sure your parents must be proud.


Sticks and stones ....

Jaguars and Land Rovers are garbage vehicles that have been the ugly ducks in the Ford flock ever since they were acquired. India can have them and Ford will be better off.

Is a problem when the wealth builders of the nation that made the dollar the most seek currency in the world are not longer supporting the nations productivity base and backing up the dollar.

That is one of the major problems facing our nation and the dollar as we deep more and more into debt the dollar becomes worthless.

Yeah, I think "haji" might mean "arrogant" in California-ese. But how did the "white boys" know? Fortunate thing that india has no arrogance among it's billion + consuming and polluting people. Sadly, sounds like there might be some racial envy mixed in with the other envy I mentioned earlier.

Anyway, I agree with the previous poster that each country should accept their own currency as legal tender. It seems that many asian countries are good at copying anything they can get their hands on, including U.S. currency.

I say boycott them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ford taps Tata as top bidder for Jaguar
The Indian automaker has become the preferred bidder for Ford's Land Rover and Jaguar brands.


The cheapes manufactured of Indian cars are now thanks to ford to be making high scale cars for the American and UK consumer, another slap on the face of the America industry and the people and a nation that once depended on the car manufacturing industry.

But this wll affect more the British industry so I guess now is the UK the one to be outsourced.

The Jag and the Land Rover were never American brands to begin with, so I fail to see what "slap" you are talking about. America did not depend on Jaguar any more than it depended on Hennesy cognac.

I personally will delight in the collapse of the current economic situation, I may not fair very well as I have not done so well - or conversely I may have less to loose.


Originally posted by CaptGizmo Families are loosing their homes and being put on the street and loosing their life savings, and we have a leader that seems to care more about other countries than his own people.



Leaders - money men.


Originally posted by CaptGizmo You know I can remember how the American people would open their hearts and dollars to people around the world who were in need by sending money



Would this be the American strategically late intervention into world wars - and then the strategic intervention of no wars





Whilst closely minding the pocket book - face it mate, the 'freest' nation on earth is nothing more than an advert for one big mission statement.

I clearly said consumers no makers, the slap comes to the American automakers workers as more competition comes from cheap labor in developing countries.

I also said clearly it will affect the UK.

So what is the problem here.

There is a solution to the whole money problem, and a chance to save the world. It is stareing us right in the face, and no one is seeing it. With the acceptance of digital cameras, the use of traditional film has almost disapeared. All the silver mines that had been supplying the film industry are closed down. This gives us an opportunity to find an alternative use for the stuff. MONEY. why not! Silver had been the Currency of choice for many centuries. If we opened up all the silver mines in the world, we could come up with enough to make a new standard money. If the countries passed laws to allow competeing currencies, I think it would gain wide-spread use, as fast as we could make the stuff. How about it? Ron Paul would let it happen, if we were smart enough to elect him President. Silver would be better as a basis for money because it is a lot more abondant than god is.
