Now that our new forum has started to evolve, I would like to introduce myself as the FSME (Forum Subject Matter Expert) of Global Meltdown and share
some of my vision for this forum.
First of all Major Thanks for ATS creating this forum. It's the most exciting thing for me since I've been here. First because it's greatly needed
right now, and secondly because there is so much information about financials & economics that we need to get educated on.
As your FSME I intend to work very hard to "spread the word" on a lot of issues that are of great importance, and many that are going unnoticed by
J6P (you and me - Joe 6 pack)
The Bank failures, the mortgage/credit crisis, the shortage of insurance in the FDIC, the housing situation, the
unemployment, yada yada till the cows come home. The Global repercussions!
In addition, I am going to be very free with applause for posts that provide real research, thought and even serious speculation that deserves
attention. I really want to see this become a serious source of information fiancial and economic around the world. This in particular is a concern
for me. What is going on in the US (the bulk of what is being posted) focuses on the US, but this is and HAS spilled over to the entire world. I would
like to see more reports from other Countries by members who live there. Start a thread for your Country and keep us updated!
In addition, as your FSME, I have been granted permission (here and from another Board) for the sharing of some serious US shenanigans that is flying
under the radar for most of us. This information will begin to be presented by me as a weekly thread, for discussion from Karl Denninger's board.
Please do not inudate his Board with "tin foil", he has no patience for it and is way too busy to be dealing with it. Here on ATS of course take it
to the extreme. I have always found some "tin foil" does lead to the truth, if not just the "ah ha!", and that is what I like about ATS. (But
please, keep your Titles on topic.)
SHARE SHARE SHARE!
Be sure to check out new posters who focus in depth on particular issues. Such as one of our newest contributors Andrew E. Wiggins who is focusing on
credit issues and providing a wealth of information, both on what is going on in this area, and what to do if you have problems in this area.
Got your own pet peeve you want to focus on like Andrew is, go for it!
Finally, any suggestions or ideas you have for this forum, feel free to respond to this thread to help me make this a wothy forum for you (or if not
comfortable with that, send a U2U).
Your humble FSME,
