Alstrynomics...Back to 100 Tour
Some People may wonder what Alstrynomics is All About?
Simple...among other issues, Alstrynomics is all about taking facts and extrapolating them into accurate projections.
A few controversial projections that the Institute of Alstrynomics maintains include:
1. Unemployment will rise to 30%-50% and maybe more before this downturn ends.
2. As defined by a 10% drop in GDP, this Recession will convert into a Depression.
3. If continued policies remain in effect, 70%-90% of all citizens, businesses, and state and local governments will declare bankruptcy or effectively be bankrupt before this crisis ends.
Alstry understands the obstacle for many of you to understand these forecasts as many of you find it difficult to project consequences that you have never experienced before. But as an expert in Black Swan thinking, the Institute makes no limitations in its analysis other then desire to be accurate....and will not allow experience to be a limiting factor to accuracy.
As a corollary to making accurate projections, Alstry and the Institute are constantly vigilant to unearth misleading headlines and articles in the mainstream press. Alstry understands that without truth, there can be no reasoned thinking and without reasoned thinking, there can be no democracy.
Last week, Alstry called the top at about Dow 8300......as we start the week the Dow is about 8475.....about 2% higher than the point of Alstry's top call. A 5% margin of error is always implied in any top call. As regular readers of this blog understand, the physical gold layer behind the massive techno trance convex reflector formation is at is most powerful at the 8400 level. In order to have a full breach, the Dow would have to break through 9000 in order to render the convex reflector's reversal implodification effect bascially impotent. We will be closely monitoring the fictional photon spectrometer readings in upcoming trading days to see what levels we reach.
Some people called George Washington and Thomas Jefferson traitors....the Institute views them as patriots for supporting the principles espoused by that model of excellent behavior and personal strength.......Superman from that elusive planet Krypton.....Truth, Justice and the American Way.
Think of Alstry as the Superman blogger of CAPs and others like DWOT as Wonder Woman, Whereaminow, Abitarre, JGus, and the others as the League of Justice and the Gardner Brothers as Perry White, the editors of the Daily Planet always trying to get that scoop.
As a strong believer in personal freedoms, Alstry welcomes all comments to his blog, even if they disagree with his perspective. With freedom comes responsibility and as a result, Alstry has been awarded an honorary doctorate in Alstrynomics and currently heads the Institute due to the amazing accuarcy of his projections for the past year.
Currently, Alstry and the Institute feel we are on the brink of some of the most revolutionary changes in world history.....certainty is never certain until the facts dictate it is certain which is only certainly reasonable in an uncertain world. We will be monitoring developments closely as Alstry now hopefully resumes his forward march to being rated 100 in Caps.
