Damn are you an economist?
Me?? Oops. I must've deleted the line saying I'm not.
My bad, seriously.
I'm just someone who has been trying to tread water for the last eight months while Helicopter Ben bails out his banking buddies with steaming wads of airdropped cash. Believe me, it ain't easy.
I swing both ways, though (errrrr, financially, I mean); I was really bullish until all those mortgage lenders started collapsing in 2Q07. I called the recession for January back in July (bragging).
