In Defense of Alstry - HIS 50 BEST BLOG POSTS of ALL-TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

June 30, 2009 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: S , TRY

Some of us LOVE him; many of us LOATHE him. Some read nearly every word he’s written; many would love to have an ‘ignore’ option and never have to see another blog from him. Regardless of where you fall on that spectrum, there is no denying that Alstry elicits the strongest reactions of any CAPS member (a recent, highly rec’d blog post comes to mind).   [more]

Just Stop The Madness Already

June 27, 2009 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: GO , NE , MAD.DL2

Does it make sense to anyone out there that on Friday the VIX fell to pre-Lehmen levels?!?! Are we really in a better position now than we were then? Is there now LESS likelyhood of some major economic, social, or political catastrophe taking place, or MORE? I think the answer to that question is quite obvious!  [more]

'Green Shoots' of Recovery? Don't Fall for the Media's Economic Triumphalism

June 26, 2009 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: LOT , O

I have previously blogged about how the mainstream financial media either looks at the world through 'green-colored glasses' or is perhaps being paid (or pressured) by the Govie to spin every bit of data in the most wonderful way. Here are a couple examples:  [more]

June 21, 2009 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: JIM , PET , DOG

Charles Hugh Smith had a great (and hilarious) post about the absurd call that Cramer recently made about having hit bottom in the housing market. If you click on the link, you'll get some great visuals - charts and pictures - to go with the article. Here's the link and excerpt:  [more]

Definancialisation, Deglobalisation, Relocalisation

June 17, 2009 – Comments (3)

Dmitry Orlov recently gave this thought provoking and well-reasoned talk at the The New Emergency Conference. He argues that a radical change in the way we live is coming whether we want to admit it or not. While I don't agree with him on every point, his is a voice definitely worth listening to!   [more]

Where's GMX? It appears that the market is finally CRASHING!!!

June 17, 2009 – Comments (15) | RELATED TICKERS: GM , X , LUV

As one who has blogged briliantly (IMO) over the last 1.5 months about the countless reasons for the impending crash, I can't believe we haven't heard anything from him yet this week. He should be on cloud 9 right now!

The Irony Of It All...

June 08, 2009 – Comments (2)

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard raised a valid point in a UK Telegraph article over the weekend. Though the vast majority of countries are still in deflationary mode, the markets have started to price in inflation. Ironically, those who are most concerned about inflation may be the ones responsible for sending us spiraling deeper into deflation. Here's the link and an excerpt:  [more]

Bloomberg on the Government Dole?

June 07, 2009 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: LVS , GVT

This was a great catch by Chris Martenson. Shortly after the payroll numbers were released on Friday, Bloomberg released an article that talked about 'skepticism' over the governments numbers. A short while later, however, the article was changed and spoke of the 'optimism' that the numbers produced. Hmmm...I'm wondering if the journalist who wrote the original piece received some 'encouragement' to rewrite the article. Here's an excerpt from Chris' find:  [more]
