Bennie Balloon Bernankie has something to say about the koolaid.
“My best guess is that we’ll have a continued recovery, but it won’t feel terrific. Even though technically we’ll be in recovery and the economy will be growing, unemployment will still be high for a while and that means that a lot of people will be under financial stress,” he said.

But there is GREAT NEWS…You can use your credit card to Help Reduce National Debt. Via The Mess That Greenspan Made
Its ok that everyone is financially strained you are still welcomed to help especially if you have a credit card with 13 trillion dollar limit. 😉
There are two ways for you to make a contribution to reduce the debt:
- You can make a contribution online either by credit card, checking or savings account atPay.gov
- You can write a check payable to the Bureau of the Public Debt, and in the memo section, notate that it’s a Gift to reduce the Debt Held by the Public.
And as mentioned yesterday the G20 Meeting relied more on taking the koolaid away and tightening the belts of the countries.
Here’s what Germany decided to do:
Germany will cut child payments, pare government payrolls and boost taxes on energy firms with nuclear power plants in an effort to save 81.6 billion euros ($97.6 billion) between 2011 and 2014 in a package approved by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Cabinet on Monday. -Marketwatch
and how it would look if the United States did something very similar. (Click the option to View as One Page for easy reading)
Of course all these news were already priced in today and greenshoots galore tomorrow.
