i think that a reality check will disprove you. things are much worse than implying that mere consumerism will solve our problems. We are way past that remedy. but yes, we are a consumer driven economic system, but too far gone to be able to be rescued by anything other than starting over.
This will be a long and painfull process. Financial truisms that have been a staple of good advice for all my life aren't necessasarily true anymore. we are in unpresendented times, and life changing economic conditions are being played out on a gigantic scale everyday.
Tough times ahead for many as they tumble to the botom.

I dont really think I need a reality check brother. Yeah I know things are bad for a portion of people right now, but that does not mean that the typical average American consumer will drop their spending habits either. In fact, I think this process will make it worse by spending more disposable income than than they should.

So found this..

OK, it's from CNBC, which most of you hate.. but still

So it's sounding like GBM is back on top!


I knew this was good for the economy, wiping off debt and spurring growth - looks like I have bested member RockPuck now and this should ultimately put me on top in any further conversations! Now all I need is the baltic dry index to start lagging the SP500 for the rest of the year..

3.7 Billion + extra IN CONSUMER SPENDING PER MONTH TO ECONOMY - HAHAHA!!!
