No End of the World From Alstrynomics

It is terribly funny how many CAPs members fail to distinguish Alstrynomics incredible projections and analysis on the economy and the "end of the world."

Folks...it won't be that bad...one of of three you you will likely be unemployed...sooo what.... that means two of you will be still drudging to your job every morning.  I know Alstry, unemployment is only at 7.6% and climbing....but if you now notice...upward revisions are getting higher and higher every month.

For those of you that don't understand BLS Birth/Death Rate adjustments or hedonics....you may want to Goggle those two terms to get a better grip on unemployment and deflation.

Actually, for the Alstrynomics partyobashomenter....partying improves when times get a little more strained....passion picks up and Alstrynomics loves passion.

And if you are preparing for retirement...don't worry...even if you can't afford to live on your own....your kids will be forced to take you in(or if you are lucky you have a hot friend from high school whose husband recently died and was an avid practioner of Alstrynomics has left her tons of cash).  Think about the revenge you can get on those little buggers, heck you took care of them for 18 years.....they could at give you a decent place to hang your hat for a few.

And all those people getting kicked out of their homes while the bankers are getting checks for trillions....its OK.....the more people in one home......the better the chance for a bigger party.....again all good if you have the right frame of mind.

Just think about the money you can save by avoiding the barber and buying a clipper with a #2....hundreds my friends......and the gas as well.

Who needs two cars when one will do.....heck you might get lucky when your wife drops you off at work....assuming you still have a job.

So let's sum up this quick summary(I am sure you guys can add a bunch below):

We won't have to work as much.

We have a better chance getting closer to our spouses or partners.

We will be able to party more.

We won't have to deal with so much crap and stuff we don't need.

We can actually learn from our parents now that they have a lot to teach us and time to spend with them.

Drinking will likey get cheaper.

Buying houses will likely get cheaper.

Most things will likely get cheaper...........

Now does that sound like the end of the world to you..............no    sireeeeeeeeee.

Way to put a positive spin on it, Alstry.  I completely agree that, once the pain subsides, there will be massive opportunity for self improvement out there.  Only problem is most Americans won't take advantage of the opportunities granted them.

Sure they will.  So long as those opportunities come at the exspence of someone elses time, effort, and/or money.

Personally, I came to the same conclusions as you, Alstry.  About the partying and family time, anyway.  But most folks just ain't happy without drama, and that means wallowing in poor-mes and pointing fingers.  Ah, well.  More for us!

Guys,

Alstrynomics is about cutting issues to the core.  No bragging about how many standard deviations you are smarter than the rest of the world or bellowing about which college you went to....if you do, than you are fair game because if you really are that smart...dealing with Alstry should be no effort.

We are dealing with serious issues...CAPs is a great forum to mash them around....,

Is Alstrynomics perfect?....not even close....but it is a whole lot better than the nonsense you are being fed in the mainstream media.....

There are few places like CAPS where you can free flow ideas with some really smart people in an open format...my guess is that my IQ has doubled since coming here...but just do you know...that probably aint saying much.

Fool On and party hard this weekend...the world may change on Monday when the Big G lays out his BS new plan.

Speaking only on the "Haircut" savings!!! Now I'm a father of 4(thank you) two girls and two boys. I've been cutting their hair for the past 20 yrs(appox) the girls wouldn't let me near them, and not that I blame them lol! So being the wise dad I went to Target 20 yrs ago and purchased a home clipper(hair cutting) set(#2 included Alstry) for $20 and have saved over $8000.- Soooo with being said I'll read more blogs :o)

I've shaved my head bald as a cue-ball for about 15 years now. Not only does it look cool, but it also saves me tons of money on haircuts, shampoo, conditioners, etc etc etc. :)

However, along with all those savings I also have to admit that my razor blade expenses have increased greatly. Anyway, there are always ways to save money, and I think Americans are becoming more and more aware of the importance of saving. If anything positive is to come out of this wrenching period of economic turmoil, I would hope that would be it.
