    KO'ed by Bernanke today

    I feel like I had a cheap uppercut and am staggering around punch drunk after Bernanke cost me my sanity today. With my MO KO, FCX, MCD stocks hitting the floor I am down for the count with major losses. Fire this incompetent jerk !!!

    • ....The economy is dead in the water... agreed.

    • fair argument.. Unfortunately the jury is still out til we are out of this , I mean REALLY out..

    • What a bunch of horse pucky! The banks aren't doing squat!

      Have you gone over to FRED recently and checked the M1 multiplier.

      The FED is flattening the yield curve. But the banks make too much money just sitting on excess cash the FED is paying them to sit on it.. they are not lending.

      This is why twist won't work in MHO. Money is drying up. All the stimulus money hasn't done anything.
      In the old days the banks worked when they acted as banks. In 1985 the multiplier was over 3x.
      now it is under 1.
      And you think the banks are doing a great job? Both you and the Duck are nuts. Only thing the DUCK has been right up to now. But paradigms change.
      For now, U.S. cash is king.
      The economy is dead in the water.
      Interestingly U.S. dollars, cash, is becoming so valuable that Bank will start charging you to deposit it with them for safe keeping.
      This is not a good formula for getting the economy on a positive footing! Let's let the banks be banks. they got sucked into the huge junk lending scam, now the pendulum has swung insanely the opposite direction.

    • No tiger, Just trying to keep you honest. Yeah the recovery has been spotty. Hell, there's a reason some economists & pundits are calling this the Great Recession. That doesnt mean you shouldnt see the progress. It doesnt mean you should mislead. Too much of the recovery has been anemic. Housing does remain shaky, but chit, do you comprehend the size of the housing bubble that along with the credit bubble cratered this economy. Housing may well take near a decade to fully recover. But again, dont mislead on the GDP, it is credibly improved and the unemployment rate has been reversed with tens of thousands gaining employment rather than losing their jobs. And the US banks, the biggest ones, are much better capitalized today.

    • My posting was about the economy and the financial industry. Not the casino.

      There were a very, very few economists who saw the economic implosions of early this century, 2007/8 and the EC/EU today.

      I was responding to Alpha's posting. Pls re-read it now with my earlier response. With the perspective clarification this post provides, maybe you will see my response differently.

    • change your name to beta .. you must be realted to the duck. big on handles. Rich corporations and high stock prices are a facade for the of economy like the USA.. The people have not enjoyed the trickle down and the banks that taxpayers bailed out are biting the hands that fed them.

    • you tell us! Do you think we are in a double dip? I say we have not gotten any better.. Housing still low, unemployment still low.. You seem to want me to dance to your tune Mr. Statistician.. We never got out of the first dip... But KO still sells.. Best to be in stocks that do well in good and bad times.

    • Just for fun of it, tiger, tell me what our GDP was when Obama took office and what it was this past qtr. And while youre at it, tell us what the Unemployment rate was when he took office and what it was this past qtr. And while your at it, maybe you could look at the qtr to qtr progression of both these cruel hard facts and share them too. I imagine this could be fascinatingly educational for us all.

    • Believe it or not, Madison, your portfolio is not Bernanke's job. He's done a pretty good job under the circumstances. Some might say yeoman-like. Lets see where this Great Recession ends and then judge. Remember, he, Obama and Congress enacted a recovery package that reversed the decline in GDP and stopped the unemployment rate from cont to climb. Notice where the stock market is versus where it was when Obama took office.
