Misery Index

Recommended Posts

Guido proposes a misery index once considered by Reagan.

The formula is:

Retail Prices Index + Unemployment rate + ( Public Sector Net Cash Requirement / GDP ) = Misery Index

Guido comes up with 18.8 points,

Now I wonder what it is with REAL inflation (about 10-15%) + a 25% unemployment rate

So we have (15+25) + (660/2200*)

-> 40.3

* faked GDP data in $ since GDP includes renting when you don't rent etc.

Lies, damned lies and statistics eh?

I'd sum thing up in 2 words, no, 3 words

WE ARE F@CKED

And it doesn't matter how smart you are or how much gold, beans and guns you have stashed under the floorboards

I subscribe to George Carlin's wisdom on the human condidtion

"The planet is doing fine, it's the people that are f@cked"

And.........

The planet isn't goin' anywhere.............................WE ARE!

"Pack you're $hit people. We're going away and we won't leave much of a trace either, maybe some styrofoam........maybe."

Just MY opinion...........

I posted the misery index years ago - there are some pictures in the "favourites graphs" sticky thread.

Can't find an up-to-date (2010) graph though.

Doesn't surprise me that Nixon and Carter are top of the list for "+change", as these two were busy putting the gloss on the sale of the US to China, way back when.

Cue US default after the French broke the London gold pool "gentleman's agreement"...

Cue the commissioning of "Happy Days" to convince Americans it's the affluent late 1950s again...

Looks like history is about to repeat itself...
