MOAP #2....Historicially Few are Hiring in America as Revenues Evaporate



September 16, 2009 – Comments (10)

Since credit is being cut off and interest are being raised by the bailed out bankers, our credit dependent consumer economy collapsing all around us.  Since the consumer is the primary driver of our economy, by cutting off the consumer to credit and income, savings are being depleted.  Our nation is shutting down as revenues and tax receipts contract at a pace NEVER before seen in our nation's history.

When few are making money....few are paying taxes.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma financial officials ordered Tuesday another 5 percent across-the-board cut in budget allocations to state agencies after state Treasurer Scott Meacham said tax revenue fell by more than 31 percent in August -- the eighth consecutive monthly decline in collections.

Preliminary reports show General Revenue Fund collections last month totaled $335.2 million. That is $154.9 million, or 31.6 percent, below collections in August 2008 and $131.3 million, or 28.2 percent, below the estimate.

For the first two months of the fiscal year, collections total $672 million, Meacham said. That is $275.3 million, or 29.1 percent, below the prior year and $209.7 million, or 23.8 percent, below the estimate.


Despite collapsing revenues, evaporating profits, massive losses....the stock market is manging to rise.  The problem now is when workers get fired, very few are getting hired.  The American infastructure is not geared to an economic based with declining wages and high unemployment and a low consumption population.

We have lots of real estate, high taxes, high health care costs....all of this needs lots of revenues to function.....and revenues are evaporating...VERY QUICKLY NOW... as few are getting hired.  Our entire economic system is in jeopordy of collapsing unless we restructure soon.

Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Chrysler Group LLC, the U.S. automaker run by Fiat SpA, said nationwide industry sales are off 19 percent so far this month after a government purchase- incentive program ended.

“We are going to see harsh reality in September,” Sergio Marchionne, the chief executive officer of Fiat and Chrysler, said at the Frankfurt Motor Show. He described the U.S. industry results as a “disaster.” Fritz Henderson, CEO of General Motors Co., said the market is “very weak” this month.

Gov. Martin O'Malley said today that he may need to order as much as $300 million worth of additional budget cuts in the current fiscal year, on top of $735 million in reductions that were approved in recent weeks. State officials will know the full extent of the writedown when a board that forecasts revenue collections releases its latest report Thursday.

I thought the Dow was going to be a 4500?  Although the economic outlook is still dire, you seemed to have missed the mark on this.

I'd rather just look at the unemployment index rather than spending the day reading about 10 jobs at a time.  I know what your going to say- the unemployment report skews the #'s not to reflect disenfrachised workers- people who stop looking for work.  I say balogna.  Most of those people won't go back to work anyway as they are forced into early retirement as our baby boomers grow in age. Many who know they are retiring ASK to be fired to get the unemployment.


Regardless, this is a lagging indicator.   You should be picking your spots a little better these days, since your score and clout are waining a bit.


Good luck!

550,000 more jobs lost.

The numbers don't lie, its not getting any better, and hiring is at a all time low.

Lagging?  It's not even dropping below 500,000 and is still roughly 2x the normal unemployment totals for a normal economy.  Have you forgotten about this?

Now dig, I have heard from some other people smarter than me (or so they think) that the breakpoint on unemployment is 400k.  So if unemployment reports are greater than 400k then we have things getting worse in the economy.  If less than 400k we have things getting better.  Not sure when things are just staying the same which is what I believe.  Things are not better or worse right now.  To me we are just sitting in the new reality.  No one wants to believe that.  Well, at least the people on TV that is.
