    Same forces at play in Lehman collapse, QE3 rally

    “We expect the S&P 500 index SPX to challenge its previous record closing high of 1,565 next year as investors move beyond the current economic malaise and look forward to improving corporate-earnings prospects as the economy moves into its recovery phase.” – Money management advisor, Sept 2008

    In case there was any doubt that the markets are RIGGED, the NYSE has been fined for sending data more quickly to the customers who paid more for preferential service:

    BTW, has WW III already started smoldering? Long weekend basically, capped by Jewish holidays, uprisings all over the world over the insulting movie, Options Week next week, “Real Options Week” ending today.

    If the close of the US markets is rocky later this afternoon, it could be Look Out Below on Monday morning, in my personal opinion.

    In many ways Africa is the future of the World. In 100 years, native Japanese and European populations will be essentially gone, China will be in deep demographic decline and even India’s population maybe peaked. There are already significant African populations in some of China’s big cities. Africans will be the youngest people on the planet, with large, closely linked overseas populations on every continent. These overseas populations will only be a few generations removed, and Africa’s vast resources will be at, or quickly moving toward full utilization. There will be a lot of money to be made over the next few decades and beyond.

    Richard Branson plans to send millions of people into space. Do we still have to listen to him blather about how we have to reduce carbon emissions?

    There has also been some speculation over the years that global warming and increases in atmospheric moisture causing large snowfalls on the big northern hemishpere landmasses (northern Canada and northern Eurasia) that did not melt fully during the summer were part of the triggering process of pastIce Ages, since the air would stay cold over the land because of the reflection of the solar radiation.

    If the GOP would have agreed to pass Obama’s jobs bill and let the temporary Bush tax cuts expire, the economy would be doing better, most likely, and the Fed may not have needed to do QE 3. So, GOP, you don’t like QE, you have ony yourselves to blame.
