Out of money?! Impossible, unless the printing presses are broken, lol.  Or maybe we could just add some zeros to the money like Zimbabwe did, keep the engravers in business- maybe these are the green-jobs President Obama has been talking about, lol.  I am just waiting for his speech about how we all need to sacrifice to justify confiscatory tax rates.

The Golden State is almost bust, but its inhabitants, even if they believe it, do not want to know and they certainly do not want to pay for it. The state has been running huge budget deficits for years; the till in Sacramento, the state capital, is now empty and the last-ditch attempt by Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Governor, to balance the books with a series of tax increases and budgetary shuffles was roundly rejected by voters in referendums a week ago.

With a $21 billion (£13 billion) deficit and the lowest credit rating of any American state, the choices are few and grim. California cannot hope to borrow such large sums, except at extortionate rates, which leaves the option of massive cuts in public spending – the sacking of thousands of teachers.

California could run out of cash in a few months.

Does this tune sound familiar??????

And for you Fools that think we can "print" our way out of this????  Sorry....wrong answer....try again.....

China warns Federal Reserve over 'printing money'


China has warned a top member of the US Federal Reserve that it is increasingly disturbed by the Fed's direct purchase of US Treasury bonds.

Richard Fisher, president of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, said: "Senior officials of the Chinese government grilled me about whether or not we are going to monetise the actions of our legislature."

"I must have been asked about that a hundred times in China. I was asked at every single meeting about our purchases of Treasuries. That seemed to be the principal preoccupation of those that were invested with their surpluses mostly in the United States," he told the Wall Street Journal.

Soon...when past Economic theories were just a memory....the world will be adopting ALSTRYNOMICS.....and it was first revealed in CAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE BEGGARS OF 90210?????

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday proposed eliminating welfare for 500,000 families and terminating health coverage for nearly 1 million children to help close the state's ballooning budget deficit.

The Republican governor's administration released details of $5.5 billion in cuts, a week after state voters defeated special election ballot measures. The new proposals are on top of those previously announced by Schwarzenegger.

Also among the cuts are stops to college fee assistance for thousands of students, fewer vocational training opportunities for state inmates and the elimination of $70 million in funds for the state park system.

The state is trying to close a $21 billion deficit, although the Schwarzenegger administration said Tuesday that its proposed budget for the 2009-10 fiscal year was outdated. The governor's finance team said the deficit now was projected to grow to $24.3 billion through June 2010.

If there are no jobs....where the heck do you think 500,000 families are going looking for food????

Welecome to MOAK..... the MOTHER OF ALL KATRINAS.

Any thoughts  where the other $15 Billion is coming from????

Is anyone thinking anymore?????

Oh Schiff, we're screwed.

The President is right though, we have to fix the problems and pay for it with production over time.  Smoke and mirrors feel good today hurts tomorrow fixes don't du it anymore.  It's going to take about a decade for things to get marginally better if we put into place President Obama's big real fixes, we'll utterly collapse if we don't.

I don't know the solution.  The only thing that could turn this around in my opinion is if consumer spending,  which is 70-90% of the economy depending who you talk to, ratchets upward drasctically.  That can't happen with multiple millions out of work.  Any increased consumer spending must be fueled by non-borrowed money.  There seems to be far too much leverage out there already.   This money would have to fall out of the sky (trillions of dollars worth).  There is no sector of the economy that is going to lead us out of this.  If just one sector did it would result in yet another bubble.  If consumer spending ratcheted up in a significant enough fashion that would result in a bubble or mutiple small bubbles.

 It seems we need to deleverage and count on fewer state and federal services.   Easier said than done. 


Corporate earnings are down 90%, yet the stock market soars.  That's the one I'm having a hard time figuring out.

Our economy is about 2/3 driven by the consumer.....millions of jobs being lost, tens of millions of wages and benefits cut, and now millions of families being taken off of welfare likely....

It does not look good for WalMart....and if it is tough for is tough for is consumer spending that drives profits and taxes to government.

Alstrynomics is one of the few macro prognosticators right time and time again warning you about the FU virus and the Zombulator which is going to detroy the consumer as all of the nations dwindling wealth is transferred to the banks.....

It doesn't matter how rich you think you are now....if the government does have money to provide services.....get ready to be taxed every dime in your savings account to keep the ball rolling. it becomes obvious that the Federal Government and State and Local Governments simply can't meet their debt payments.......KABOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!

Nobody will lend us a dime and EVERYTHING may simply COLLAPSE!!!!!!!!!!!!
