And is it any coincidence that the national debt just eclipsed 20 trillion? Methinks there may be a correlation there.

Production and profit became decoupled years ago.....  Big business is thoroughly hooked on the government teat.

I dare not speculate why you hear music and/or voices in your head!  :laugh:

I don't read such things. :) Anyway, I'm still hearing "Ding-Dong, The Witch is Dead" at times. Makes me smile.

The stockmarket numbers are about volume, not value.  The economy is not growing, yet the volume of trades goes up.  What does that say?  I am thinking that business is busy churning the market for profits, and the volume is indicative of what they have to churn to just stay even.

18 trillion in debt has devalued the dollar drastically, a million dollars in the bank can only ensure 30,000$ a year in income with the most secure invested principle.  What does that tell you?  I am sure a lot of people in real estate are now sitting on their property and zealously guarding the nest egg they made during the boom, and the smart ones did what I did.  They are in various 'Park City' clones at the very least, or have a property that pays its taxes and a small income on the side.

I am now waiting for the farmers to burn the harvest in protest at the next election.
