I actually believe it could be a slight negative to +.5 print. The recent macro numbers are leading some analysts to that belief of a negative number but don't worry in true analyst fashion they are already pushing up GDP numbers for the second half of 2013. If that doesn't happen then they will push it up for the first half of 2014. It has to go up at some point I guess no?
I can't remember the last time there was an article stating bad news about the economy.
The old adage is if you keep telling a lie over and over, some folks will start taking it as the truth.
The reality is QE has failed 3x to create jobs as companies can cut 10% of their workforce and have the remaining 90% work longer and smarter. Bernacke is insane and is bent on destroying the dollar to prevent deflation. Imagine if there was deflation with a 7% interest rate? The U.S. $17T debt would be the demise of America's decent credit ratings. Obo and company have sold out to the rich and screwed seniors, savers and military folk; the people who built and defend this country.
Notice the media keeping hush about $4 gas and Iran getting a nuke within 3 months. The media is owned by the same folks who are keeping Americans wage slaves. How will it end??
