Recession by Stealth
« on: February 16, 2008, 07:41:39 PM »
I'm just slack jawed with this one. The merkin goob's economic indicators http://www.economicindicators.gov/ is no longer active because of BUDGETARY RESTRAINTS! In the middle of a fucking capital R-ecession.

ThinkProgress tells you about it

Howz that for total oxymoronic assholeishness?!

Good thing that hasn't gone north to Canada.

Harper does not have to be as secret - he just gets rid of anyone supplying any information contrary to his, as in a scientific advisor and Linda Keen.

The Justice Department is conducting a criminal probe into whether the world's biggest banks manipulated a global benchmark rate that is at the heart of a wide range of loans and derivatives, from trillions of dollars of mortgages and bonds to interest rate swaps, a person familiar with the matter said.

Canada's Competition Bureau said in a court filing in Ottawa that a bank it did not identify has told the agency's investigators that people involved "were able to move" interest rates, the paper said.The "cooperating party" is Swiss bank UBS AG (UBSN.VX), the WSJ said, citing people familiar with the situation.  (BTW, the Swiss have been given immunity)

I've been reading about this for a few weeks now. I saw so many articles on bankster/gob resignations, but I couldn't find one repository of all the resignations. I found one today, know nothing about the site, except it's listing them.http://www.scoop.it/t/hidden-financial-system Altho I think it was American Kabuki that started the resignation list (or rats fleeing the ship) http://americankabuki.blogspot.com/2012/02/81-resignations-from-world-banks-22712.html  Kabuki says 81 resignations worldwide, but it has gone up considerably.We will finally see heads roll? Or is immunity gonna save their butts while they make arrangements to go to S. America/Caribbean etc.
I despise blogger language like 'satan cabal', but the MSM doesn't report on where the money went or how it got there, or anything else. FUCK.
Unconfirmed rumor: "

I was amused by David Jacobsen's little talk telling us the U.S. fiscal cliff is really just a fiscal slide. Meaning to me they'll slide into a deeper recession in time increments, it just won't happen on Jan. 1st. So it seems like a softening up to prepare us for no deal by the extreme polarization of the repugs/dems.


Bill Clinton by an accident said in June the U.S. was already in recession and many others say the same.


Meantime the U.K. may be going into a Triple Dip Recession  :o  Of course the article doesn't say they are already in a double dip recession. Good luck Mark Carney.

Canada doesn't have a Daily Job Cuts site as the U.S. does that I can find. But CP announced it will cut 4,500 jobs by 2016 (that Economic Action Scam Thingy not working) while Diane Finley finally admits the EI appeal system 'isn't working'. Duh ya think? http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/it-isnt-working-federal-government-looks-to-revamp-ei-appeals-process/article5989661/


The business writers, the economists and of course Flaherty are still discussing whether we're in a recession, they can't seem to make up their minds, but ferrsure expect 'modest' growth. The IMF warns us the 'era of austerity' will last until 2018. At least until real reform happens. It's gonna get worse before it gets better.

Well that didn't take long, thanks for the heads up Jacobsen.
