26-30 Nov Economic Calendar: The Mystery Week is Really SSDD
As predicted, on a no news economic morning, Greece and fiscal cliff are the countdown issues bored business editors are pulling out of bottom drawers to comment on again. A few green shoots from the shopping weekend in the real economy are great news for those who believe in the real economy, but with Ben printing trillions, how do million dollar figures and numbers first entering the billion dollar levels compare? Kind of a letdown, isn't it? to see the real economy pale in comparison to the manipulated macro economy? It's like the manipulated dead and the real dead of Donnie Darko fame, all designated ensurance plays to lead our Receiver to restoring the Artifact back into the Primary universe, so the Temporary universe isn't destroyed, taking us into the end of the world. And we've only 36 days, 19 hours, 42 minutes and 11 seconds till then--we call it the fiscal cliff. And the big question concerning all of this economic nonsense remains the same as it was for that 2001 weird flick--if all the Supreme Being had to do to restore the universe was anything he wanted, why did he establish such a convoluted machination to do that? Why didn't he just restore the Universe? And we ask the same thing of all these macro economic leaders--if all they have to do is write a check equal to the debt by printing money, because that is the mechanism which was set in place by the Great Burglar, Richard Nixon, why don't they just print the money, write a check and end the drama?
Why ARE we wearing that silly man suit?
Yosemtie? Or am I being too obtuse? Markets are off a hair after the nutso last Friday. Which was a half day. Unless you count AH, which ran till 5PM EXT, which made it a whole day.
And that is without any unexpected holes in the space time continuum.
