this means THINGS ARE GOOD/GETTING BETTER

This reflects 2 things my friend

1) RISK APPETITE INCREASING = EQUITIES RISING/ DOLLAR FALLING / COMMODITIES RISING

2) FLIGHT TO RISK/ OUT OF QUALITY (basically same things)

_____

Remember when the market tanked earlier this year.. guess WHAT WENT WAYYY UP..

Give you 2 guesses, but you will only need 1.. that is correct the US DOLLAR

Ummmm.... was this in response to my question? The one I posed right before this response? If so, I'm not understanding your answer.

So we dont produce anything you say?

We do produce certain things. Movies (although, for years many Hollywood films have been made in other countries - notably Canada and Australia), Porno, great tools. As far as I know, most "American" corporations produce whatever it is they produce in other countries. Even parts of our legal profession are beginning to be outsourced to India (document review, etc).

Hey GreenBicman,
I don't want to throw your thread off track. If you'd rather U2U me your answer, I understand. However, I can't find it now but, you wrote earlier in the thread that historically when things are bad people invest in the dollar (or something to that effect). However, isn't the world dumping the dollar, buying gold, and looking to a basket of currencies at the moment instead of the dollar?


When things are bad people invest in the us dollar

--correct
--this happened earlier this year when the markets TANKED and the US DOLLAR TOOK OFF TO THE POSITIVE SIDE

Now.. dollar is going down right?.. Equities are RISING.. what does this mean?

--You know the answer now
--Speculators and investors are anticipating bullish news ahead 6-18 months down the line (stock market is a LEADING INDICATOR) and thats why the DOLLAR IS FALLING (THINGS ARE NOT THAT BAD THIS MEANS) and EQUITIES RISING = PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO TAKE ON MORE RISK

Does this make sense now?

That's true, we do produce a lot of software. But that doesn't employ as many people as, let's say, an automobile factory would. Or a sneaker factory.

As for the dollar going up when the market tanked in October, 2008 - aside from a few spikes it's been going down consistently since then. Jim Rogers, Warren Buffet - these men believe gold is going to go up, up, up. These are not doom and gloomers (if you want, I'll add Marc Faber, Max Keiser and Peter Schiff to the list). Gold will NOT continue to rise if the dollar rises. But, it won't. At best it will start going up in a couple of years. Yes, in that case the rich and very well prepared middle class will make out well. Even in that case, at least 80% of the US will, at best, remain status quo. Most of them will be hit hard.
I understand that jobs are a lagging indicator of growth in the economy. However, 70% of our economy's GDP is based on our own citizens buying crap. If they don't spend our GDP won't grow. They said our GDP for last quarter had a 3.5% rise then a few weeks later, "oops, sorry, made a mistake." It was more like 2.7-2.9%.

Listen, I love your optimism. It's contagious. You may be right on the foreclosure thing (I'm skeptical). But, I don't know if I agree with the other points you've made. Doesn't mean I'm right. Just don't see it.

We are weeding out the weak and the people that should have never have had this loan to begin with.


Actually the government is sending a message to corporations, banks, and individuals that being irresponsible is the way to go. Folks like me who have been responsible their whole lives are not getting government help in ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FASHION and I resent the hell out of that! My taxes are now going to go further to assure that irresponsible folks and banks don't loose because of foreclosures. I am sick of paying for my neighbors mortgages.

All along, I thought responsibility was the way to go, but decades on this planet has taught me otherwise (whether it's business or government).

Again, I am skeptical. BUT, I do understand where you're coming from now. As I'm sure many others have said to you, I hope that you're right.

Take a stab at how many people work for google

How about Intel

How about microsoft?

ok ann taylor closes all their stores.. fine

amazon takes in 1.5 billion more dollars, 1.5 times what ann taylor could have made

= positive GDP and GROWTH in this country

dont worry, i have been saying this since dow 6800 and while I continue to be right, I have had the same conversation with 1000 other members, this is just the next chapter

The .com *bubble* is over, the boom has just begun

Do you know how much AMZN made last quarter?

Why did their stock shoot up to a new record high?

Must be because of the new moon I suppose, that or A FLIGHT TO QUALITY
