Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Argentina recently nationalized a foreign oil firm, which is pretty indicative of their overall domestic economic policies lately. I don't follow Argentina too closely, but I think its likely what is going on there is due almost entirely to domestic policies and has little to do with the European de...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

The ways things have been going(with "austerity"), countries were likely to break off from the Euro anyways... If some type of compromise in monetary policy/fiscal policy is made that is more accommodative to the highly indebted/uncompetitive countries, then the possibility of the Euro-zone staying ...

Re: Workout of the Day

Maybe you folks could help me. I'm trying to come up with something to work lower body, that wouldn't kill my arthritic knee? I have been sticking mainly to biking and low weight leg press and leg raises, and calf raises on the machines. Any thoughts? If you haven't tried it, I would recommend tryi...

An interesting twist by the US Fed. I understand the mechanics but I have to confess confusion over the anticipated result.

The problem we have is that if the US goes down so does everyone else. Unlike the situation with the British there is no one capable of stepping into the void.

Re: What is your favorite beer OR what are you currently try

Sierra Nevada autumn brown ale. This is the worst beer ever... because it tastes great, is incredibly drinkable for how much taste it has, and is reasonably priced.

Re: Expired batteries

I've had unused batteries leak and go bad that were stored properly and weren't even expired. The ones I had were cheap bulk batteries. If they aren't brand name I would throw them out... Ruined electronics are no fun, and even cleaning corrosion off of contacts is a pain in the ass.

This is all very true. I try to read a lot on economic happenings and the market and analyze the future.

I feel like what they've done is too aggressive already and hasn't had much of a positive effect. The downside risk of more action is more than the upside risk IMO.
