This is a warning for everyone who reads ATS.
The economy is not getting better. It is in fact getting worse.
The bond markets are showing the strain. If people do not buy the US bonds, the government can not fund itself. Please read this blog: 4 Horsemen of the Bond Market
I can say the next comment without worry I will be wrong at all. I know this to be true
The economy is going to crash. Starting the fall of 2009. The signs will be hard to see at first to the normal man or woman but it will start.
Do not look at the stock market for the signs. The stock market is not an indicator of how healthy our economy is anymore.

Shoudn't this be in the prophesy forum so we can later laugh at the claim.
The fact is that foreign countries ARE buying US Treasuries and there is no evidence other than Gerald Celente and the Webbot fear mongering to back up a statement that the economy will crash.

Beautiful! A crashed world economy is good news for the ecology ... and an excellent way to reduce global over-population the smart way too .. by weeding out the weak and inept from the strong and prepared.
Prepare for this, it is most definitely going to happen, because there are forces working really hard on this to make sure it happens. It's necessary you know, as the alternative is far worse (can you imagine an Earth with double the population we have now? I can, but I don't want too, ha). Failure to prepare for this is to prepare for your failure. Stock up on a year or two worth of food (unless you like the taste of soylent green). Stock up on arms and ammo too (and not just for defense, but for mercy missions too, if you know what I mean, ha).
Ah, it will be glorious! The stinking PTB, beaten at their own game. Don't let them escape to their underground bunker cities, such as the one under the Denver airport and other locations. Every scrap of soylent green may be necessary for your survival, if you fail to prepare for this.
Good luck everyone. Oh, and keep your friends close, and your enemy closer .. especially the big plump and juicy looking ones, ha. I knew there had to be a reason why so many Americans have been fattening themselves up lately .. and now we know why (thank you, ha).

Well, well, the economy won't tank. In fact, it is going to recover.
The "W' administration had 8 years to go from a budget surplus during the Clinton years to a devastating deficit under "W". The "W" crew did everything in their power (and that was a lot) to make as much money as they possibly could (that was a lot, too.).
It makes me sick to read all this anti-Obama stuff on here. All those critics, please post everything you would have done starting 01/09 to get the US out of the @#$-hole the "W" crew got us in.

I beg to disagree with the OP. The only areas of the economy that are failing are those in which the central government has interfered in the past, a solid indication that our increasingly socialist government has no idea of what it's doing when it comes to free market capitalism.
The USA is a capitalist nation, built its superpower status on capitalism. That nation cannot survive with socialists interfering to micromanage and regulate the markets.
There are areas of business that remain untouched by this socialist-wrought "recession" — the pharmaceutical industry, for example, and its associated industries are enjoying some rather bullish returns, and the graph is still tracking upward for the foreseeable future.
I mean, damn, my wife contracts for the pharmaceutical industry and she's getting a 35% bonus this year — that's 35% of her yearly income, in one check, as a bonus. We haven't felt the so-called recession at all.
It's true, President Hussein's tax-and-spend socialist administration is killing capitalism and chasing business out of the USA, but I have faith that American socialism will go the way of all socialism — into the fossil bin of failed politics. Freedom will prevail, even if a few heads have to roll.
In the meantime, everybody needs a bottle of aspirin or a Valium nightcap. Follow the prescription drug market and you won't go far wrong. My wife thanks you and I thank you for your unswerving patronage.

I dont know how your wife sleeps at night working for drug companies and their dangerous drugs.
