Boom And Bust And A Great Depression

Recommended Posts

Quite interesting. Hadnt heard that theory before.

Theorys like this make life more complicated for me. Thats another one I have to take on board and protect myself against.

Out of cash and into stocks? Hmm.... Dont know about that.

Didn't expect to stumble upon somethng like this on Wired, but here it is:


(Sorry if it's a repost)

I think he may be wrong simply because he says this:

"Now, businesses are going to have to catch up and reinvest to keep up with consumers, who never stop spending. Businesses will come back big time, and that money largely flows into information technology."

Now perhaps I have misunderstood but there seems to be an assumption that all the money invested in property will just switch across to the stock market. Now if that happened it really would cause an almighty bubble but it won't happen because most people have very little equity in the property market and getting your equity out of that market by selling is not easy right now.

This guy seems to be ignoring the personal debt situation that will prevent large numbers of people investing in shares.
