Seeing the other thread is almost dead. I will start it up.

Selling into a panic

That’s worth keeping in mind today as panic grips global stock markets.

Perhaps the closest recent domestic analogy to what Japan is going through right now is the 9-11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Just as is the case with the Japanese stock market, Wall Street plunged on the day it eventually reopened following those attacks.

But the market quickly recovered.

Although one could make a solid argument that many things are "better" than before - and many do - I personally agree with you. I also think that it's important to remember that virtually ALL of the core causes of 2008, the Great Recession and the international financial crisis(es) still remain, and moreso still remain to essentially the same degree as in 2008 - or have simply gotten worse.


But one thing is for sure, it is not as bad as many of us thought it would be. That doesn't preclude our present situation from continuing to degrade; just that it hasn't happened as fast as many thought.

Gotta ask the same question in this one that I did in the last one!
Is this earthquake and the Japanese nuclear problems the events that start the domino effect in an already severely troubled world economy that ends in world wide economic chaos?
Will it push us into the abyss of no return?

Exactly.

Some people were expecting more extreme consequences in 2009-2010, ranging from a complete breakdown of the financial sector, food shortages, high inflation, massive unemployment (like 30-40%) all the way to predictions of civil unrest (or war) and complete the breakdown of law and order.

So things APPEAR somewhat "stable" (in a manner of speaking) at least, and that seems to be a relatively good thing, and now the discussion seems to be more about where we are headed - and whether the "rot" within the system might still have catastrophic consequences for the U.S. economy, or whether we might get stuck in a "lost decade" like Japan's stagnation, or if in fact we are in a slow but steady recover - but one in which employment is lagging production.

Either way, I just hope for an interesting, informative and civil discussion.

And I believe that to be true for ONE reason and ONE reason alone.

Bernanke got the word from the bankers that they will..........hide these problems IF he gives them basically free money for as long as the banks want it.In unlimited amounts.

Banks are sitting on hundreds of billions of dollars doled out by Bernanke. Makes there bottom lines look nice and fat, thereby keeping them in the bonus round of multiple million dollar bonuses.

The moment is basically stable but all the elements which make it so are in a constant state of instability. We have fuel but the costs are unstable because of the middle east coming unhinged. We have power but the future of coal, oil, and nuclear sources are unstable because of EPA, middle east, and Japan meltdowns. We have money but inflation is destroying savings. We have houses but they are losing value. We have food but the costs and supply are unstable because of production costs, famine, and demand. We have heath care but the future is screwed because of challenges to obamacare and illegals. We have education but the education systems are collapsing because of low tax revenue and public sector pension demands. We have good infrastructure but roads, bridges, ect are deteriorating because of low tax revenue again. We still have out 401ks, IRAs, savings accounts but investments are losing because of implied Govt interest in "managing" them for us. I am seriously considering the backyard savings plan. We are working but we all know somebody who is long term unemployed and more who are underemployed.

So, we're OK right now but it appears in the long run things are really gonna suck. Whatever.
