    Corporate debt is out of control!

    I don't understand why, but it seems like a lot of businesses keep a lot of debt. Look at k,f,gm,ge,fnm,jpm, and gis. Gm and Ge together have almost half a trillion in debt. They have so little cash too. Fnm almost alone almost has a trillion in debt.

    I just wonder how much debt they had years ago. The older generation of stock people talk about how high the pe ratio is now. I just wonder what the debt was like before. I bet it was nowhere near what it is today. That just makes the stocks look even more pricey. This looks like a credit bubble in companies as well as people.

    If the companies can keep growing, and can still affoard the debt, why not pick up more debt? More spending will help the economy and it will help the big business in the end. What goes around comes around right? If the cycle breaks, I think we are in trouble.

    I think I had better buy more gold or something.

    Anybody got any good ideas?
