Skeptic pointed out the correlation with the last poll results and increasingly optimistic views on the economy from MSM:
MSM propaganda works incredibly well.. if they say it, people believe it.

Kingston, NY, 7 May 2009 -- The financial fields replete with sprouting "green shoots" should be viewed with suspicion, if not alarm, warns Gerald Celente, The Trends Research Institute Director. "They are not a mirage, but they are ephemeral."
Field Marshall Ben Bernanke and his Green Shoot Brigade have fertilized the economic landscape with trillions of sweat equity dollars extorted from today's public and the public of generations to come. Regardless of how depleted the land, heavy doses of dollars spread so thickly over the financial and government territories, will force "green shoots" to grow. But the fundamentals of the economy remain unsound. They will not be corrected by forced fertilizing barren acreage.
"'Green shoots' may sprout," said Celente, "but they will not flower. The economy cannot be coerced back into growth with tons of money manure."

The problem I have with his report is that "WW3" or some other large scale war (big enough to necessitate large-scale military / defense spending) would require much destruction to the countries involved. If the USA is to be one of the victims of this kind of conflict, wouldn't it be counter-productive for a "globalist" or "NWO leader" to destroy and pollute the towns and cities of the workers they NEED to sustain their wealth? Who will be around to serve them cocktails and caviar, or sell them a new Ferrari, or sell them gas for their Ferrari, when mushroom clouds are hanging around everywhere.
I think this needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I could image some type of "false-flag" happening but not all-out global warfare. It just wouldn't make sense. What fun is cruising around in your yacht when you are monitoring Rad levels while you are out??
I think they are content with debasing the markets, and then claiming "look at our growth numbers & profit" on the way back up. Of course you're making money, you just cashed out and debased the market 40%, and bought cheap stocks at the bottom.
