Y'all should start to re-kindle some thoughts on what actually happens to markets when the sentiment changes from one of future inflation to one of DEflation. The dollar "can" fall apart and cause a run on stocks as well. Ya have to think out of the box, as the inflation worries, higher taxes and cuts in spending are NOT, I repeat NOT part of the agenda and near term plans for this administration. Our markets hate uncertainty. They are starting to have uncertainty once again. Whether you agreed or disagreed with TAARP and Stimulus plans, the markets understood thwm oncew they were in play. They built in the future impact. But the field is changing. Ther'll be MORE stimulus, more spending and a falling dollar. And deflation rather than inflation on the horzon. And lower rates on excess funds. And the concern in the world will be exaccerbated by more US bank failures, and a Municipality or 2.
