Well, if really 3k (DOW) is the point where economy collapses & industry shut downs, we will see it happen next 2 weeks… I knew it is coming, but didn’t expect so fast drops – over 500 points in 3 days? WTF?
Time to get saved money and do some shopping. BIG shopping: rice, corn, canned food…

NY state lost 25 pct of new jobs since last decline


NEW YORK, March 5 (Reuters) - New York state, in the final quarter of 2008, lost over 25 percent of the jobs it had gained since the last downturn, a statistic that reveals the deepening recession, the labor department said on Thursday.

This means 110,300 people working at private companies lost their jobs in just three months.

These employers had hired more than 400,000 people from July 2003, when the last decline ended, to August 2008, when the economy peaked, the state labor department's report said.

Private companies switched rapidly from hiring workers -- adding 70,000 in the third quarter -- to laying them off.

"Data released today continue to underscore the severity of the steadily deepening recession in New York State," said Peter Neenan, director of the state labor department's Division of Research and Statistics in a release.

I have a feeling it is going to be another bloody day on the Street tomorrow. All this bad(understatement) news coming out it can't all possibly be factored in.

Then we also have job report coming out tomorrow. We might see 8% unemployment. Not a good thing that is over what they are projecting. Either way as you and redhatty put it, there is no confidence we are in free fall and the only thing it is going to do is snowball and speed up.

They can't keep the news from Lehman and the BofA takeover suppressed for too much longer, then we are going to see fireworks. I don't think that investors will have enough confidence to see another pump and dump at that point.

Well You might want to get some sleep because we might witness the collapse of civilization tomorrow.

I'm going to check out Wal-Mart tomorrow and see if they have any ammo down my way, and if not then I'm going to order some and hope the truck doesn't get jacked before it gets here.

Things like this don't happen overnight. In term of switching currency. China's silver backed Yuan will likely be the world new reserve currency due to value and volume.

If you wanna know where your retirement is going take a look at this:

Projectvxn, Hx3_1963, and everyone - thanks for the advice!

I'll let my mate know that you all don't see a bottom on this thing anytime soon...

He's in a bad place either way - but no reason not to stop the bleeding if he can...

At least he's "awake" now and won't get Fooled Again!

This is what the ATS community is really all about irishchic. But it does take pretty hard work in terms of collecting the information. It is something we do because, regardless of what we're discussing, we care about the future of our community, our country, and our planet.

Again,I am a newbie and amazed not only at the info here but the manner in which it's shared.
It DOES take a lot to collect data and honestly,my lil' red head has been spinning for weeks.
These posts allow me to track,isolate,and decide efficiently plus I admire the brilliance and enjoy the humor.
I am fortunate to be here at this time because trust me,I live in a rural Texas location and these sheep out here are CLUELESS!

For the experts on this thread I was wondering if we could create a sister thread which gets posted to almost as much. This thread would be in direct correlation to what the market reporting here means to us on a personal level, ie some here are not invested inthe markets, but this news affects them as well. If this is possible what would the title be to discern it from yet just another post? I think a lot more people might be interesting in taking measures if the DOW or S&P drop but they can't relate the number info into what to do within their own lives. Anyone?

You could try to p2p a mod and ask 'em to add/re-post this in the active threads, as they only currently show "new" active threads...or...ask 'em if you could start a new headline just to link it to this...???


Star 4 U...for thinkin' of this! (I had also, but, gave up hope...rockin' the boat here is discouraged...I p2p'd Mod about grouping "end of Civilization?" threads in one mass thread...there are a lot and it's getting to hard to sort through anymore...I've noticed a dozen variation of the same subject/topic posted lately...)


Larry Kudlow is tryin' to plant mustard seeds...none of his guests are buyin' it...got it recordin' to post later...

actually...I just sent this post to byrd for consideration...

I live in Reno Nevada and relatively populated with a decent college here...Even the economics department is clueless. And that is pretty sad. Your job, should you choose to accept it, is pretty much what I do. Force people to think about it.
