The Fraud WILL UNRAVEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The overall poverty rate in the US rose to 13.2 percent in 2008, as workers across all sectors of the economy became jobless and increasing numbers of families were forced into destitution, according to a new government report. Real median household income also declined by 3.6 percent.

JUST 260 MILLION TO GO UNDER THE CURRENT ZOMBULATION POLICY......

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. corporate debt default rates are expected to hit "unprecedented" levels in 2009, even though the economy may be past the halfway mark of the U.S. recession, according to a forecast unveiled on Monday at the Reuters Restructuring Summit.

"There is a lot of pain left -- we are only just half way through the 600 or so defaults in this cycle," said Phil Kleweno, a partner at Bain's corporate renewal group.

AND BENNY B TELLS US THE RECESSION IS OVER?????

MY FRIENDS....NOW YOU KNOW MOAP.......SOON YOU WILL FEEL MOAP

MOAP?  Right.  Whatever you claimed MOAP to be never happened.  All one needs to do is to get outside and compare today to 6 months ago.... it's about the same.  There is nothing of what you've been spewing happening.

If you disregard the presentation.  Most of what Alstry says has been happening.  Afterall his posts are mostly headlines.  I would say the market's reaction and interpretation of the data has been different then what he expected.

Jddubya,

Net, net, there are a lot of job losses being lost in retail right now.  Kohls may be taking market share, but whommever they are taking it from (department stores at malls) are losing a lot more than Kohls is adding.

Plus, these are likely low-paying retail minimum wage jobs.  Not exactly the kind that will pay a mortgage on a $200K house payment and car payments on a $40K SUV.

I take 15 seconds to find 2 positive examples for the jobs market and you attempt to minimalize it.  You are right about net numbers, but my point (which admittedly I did not articulate) is that jobs are being created during these times.

Alstry takes an average of 3 blogs per day and goes to webs sites where job losses are listed, then he splatters copies of the links here, and you and others praise his info to no end.  It's especially amusing how his distrust for the mainstream media is so prevalent in his blogs, yet much of the data Alstry spews comes from that same mainstream media.

MOAP (whatever that means) hasn't occurred and likely won't.  Despite anything that Alstry spews there is simply not a thing that anyone can do to prepare for what he has implied will happen.

And, oh, if the market drops to S&P 555, Dow 5000 he will only have been 6 months off..... JEEEEEEEZ UZZZZZZ

Jdduya,

Sorry I wasn't meaning to minimize your job gains, but put them in context.

I agree Al has blown his cred related to S&P projections.  However, so have I and a lot of others that used by be in the 99s.

A lot of us have underestimated the ability of the Fed to pump these markets.

Despite anything that Alstry spews there is simply not a thing that anyone can do to prepare for what he has implied will happen.

On this point, I disagree.  While Al has been sparse in his comments about how to prepare, there are some ways to prepare for disaster - gold, silver, foreign currencies, guns, ammo, stored food.

Fool on...

Although, the latest news does not look that great, there are companies that are hiring new workers.  Some companies have benefitted from the down turn and have increased market share.  Whats happening is that small business is being pushed out, consumed by larger companies that can make up losses with higher volume sales

The Romanian government falling link is here.   Actually it wasn't really fallen but the major coalition fell apart.  Expect new elections soon.

It's a great time to be an investors. We have experienced a great run-up since March, most of us made some nice profits. At the same time a lot of people on this forum have taken some profits in september and build up a nice cash reserve for the coming months. As long as you've build up your portfolio with decent companies on a good value basis it doesn't really affect you either way.

Stick with the investments you still have and if we do experience a fallback to the 8500 - 9000 range it seems like a good point for some new investments. Of course, the lower you go the better it is, but it seems like a bit of wishful thinking to assume that the DOW could fall back to 7.500 - 8.000. People have a better feeling for relative valuations now.

The only disappointing thing is the slow growth prospects in the 'developed' nations for the foreseeable future, so when you reach certain valuation levels, like you now see at the 9.500 - 10.500 range the markets just stall. But then that only shows we've all learned our lessons. The days of easy money are over, which could be considered a health development in the long run.
