  1. Q3 GDP might just about be positive (due to the sham method of QE being included in the calculation) and Gordon will announce a victorious end to the recession. Meanwhile, the "real" economy will continue to go down the shitter and I reckon we could be back in recession by about Q3 2010 when the QE prop is gone.
  2. Freddie and Fannie won't make it. I thought I read something recently about the US government looking at ways to try and break them up/wind them down? It could get messy.
  3. Not going according to plan in Japan it seems. It was expected that the stimulus would create a much bigger boost to Japanese GDP than it actually did, which suggests that consumer spending is tanking there (same in the US). The Japanese stimulus will be winding down in Q4 so I think the GDP will fall again if they don't use another stimulus package. This is why the Nikkei fell on the news of the figures last night. The stimulus seems to have failed. The Japan GDP figure is just a positive blip IMO.
  4. So white means companies that made no profit/no loss? AIG looks mega-f*cked.

  6. GDP will rise? No shit Sherlock. GDP= private consumption + gross investment + government spending + (exports - imports) The bit in red has been pumped up by QE to replace the bit in blue. What happens when the QE stops?
  7. This is all about the dire U.S. consumer figures coming out towards the end of last week. You can forget about any recovery if the US consumer figures don't start to turn around and the world markets know it.
  8. http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/busi...icle6798315.ece Is it really the rain? This slowing seems to mirror the consumer contraction seen in the US over the past couple of months.
  9. What kind of situation would require nearly half a million troops FFS ! Are they expecting a Chinese invasion or something? WTF ??
  10. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfpfIV6phdQ
  11. So the FDIC are finally bust but the bank failures are actually increasing in number every week? What happens next week then?
  12. 5 US banks went under yesterday. http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/banklist.html Colonial is the biggest bank to go under so far in 2009. Total now 77 for 2009. http://portalseven.com/servlets/Finance?ac...=finFailedBanks

  14. A few more videos from this guy on this thread: http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/ind...=117862&hl= My favorite wallstreetpro video: what phucking recovery
  15. Would you not think that her being on the "Congessional Oversight Panel on the bailout money" means she has access to the information on the state of the banks? Why on earth would she make this up if she has not personally seen evidence of it? That makes no sense.
  16. No chance. He wouldn't watch it and even if he did he wouldn't understand it.
  17. TFH or is there more to this? I actually think he makes some good points here.
