    One day the asset market and the economy are going to have a reckoning. This article doesn’t give a clue as to when but as to causation it is clear: “Household wealth for those under 40 remains below 1989 levels, according to the St. Louis Fed paper.”

    The market watch link on the third bullet says that equities are at 37% and this is low.
    But this guy: http://philosophicaleconomics.wordpress.com/2013/12/20/the-single-greatest-predictor-of-future-stock-market-returns/

    From last year has a chart that shows almost 40% equity allocation now, which is relatively high ( but not absurd). Anyone know how to reconcile the two? The latter link shows the highest equity allocation at about 52%, not the 65% in the marketplace link.

    The issue is not the issue; the issue is who raised the issue:

    Hehe, Missed this. Follow the link to see the sign! {lol]

    The point here is that just about anything can be hacked. Phones and computers are obvious. But how about your web connected refrigerator or washer/dryer or house heating system? If everything in your house is network connected, then any weak entry point can lead to a “whole house infection”. :-(

    SF Traffic Sign Hacked To Warn Drivers Of ‘Godzilla Attack’
    by Gregg Rosenblum May 15, 2014 9:44 PM

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A prankster is getting points for creativity after hacking an electronic traffic sign in San Francisco warning of a “Godzilla Attack.”

    The sign was spotted on Van Ness Avenue Wednesday night, reading ‘Godzilla Attack – Turn Back.”

    The mobile sign was supposed to be warning drivers about traffic delays during Sunday’s Bay to Breakers foot race.

    The sign has since been fixed.
