Re: 1-Oct-10 News -- McDonald's threatens end to ealth benefits

(snip) As far as overpriced movie popcorn and hotel minibars - no doubt. But I'm willing to bet no one ever went broke and lost their family because of those two. Concentrate on the big expenses and the frequent expenses and the rest falls into line. For working people, buying a bag of prewashed ve...

Re: 24-Sep-10 News -- UN meets to discuss surging food prices

Fischer's cycles seem to be what I'm calling Megacycles. The last one peaked right after the end of the 18th Century mega-Crisis and leveled off in the 19th Century Mega-High. The slow climb upwards began at the start of the 20th Century Mega-Awakening and is peaking with the early 21st Century Mega...

Re: 9-Sep-10 News -- Fed: 'widespread signs of deceleration'

Re: 3-Sep-10 News -- Expert Jeremy Siegel makes no sense

Or why I have "This Time is Different: 8 centuries of financial folly" out from the library and will probably look into buying it. I have not trusted any of the financial experts or economists or any of the talking heads on the subject of the economy since the crash . "THID" points out on about the ...
