Terribly amusing posting on the Freakonomics blog yesterday that made me check if it was April Fool’s Day:
Thanks for the compliment — I think we both know this was correlation rather than causation.
We recorded that on Monday afternoon, and they posted it early Tuesday. But if you looked at the US Futures market, you can see they were very strong once Asia opened up big.
Chalk it up to fortuitous timing more than anything else . . .
Note: This was A bottom; whether its THE bottom has yet to be determined.

A must see episode of BBC World’s The Oracle with Max Keiser. Along with guests Jim Rogers and Michael Hudson, Keiser discusses angry bailout losers in the US; a ‘monetary Stalingrad’ in Eastern Europe; and whether Swiss banking can survive without tax cheats and money launderers.

This is a sequel to a video parody I made in December 2007 entitled Wall Street Meltdown (also on YouTube) that chronicled the developing financial crisis of 2007. Redux picks up where the original left off and covers the deepening crisis in 2008.
It is scary the prophetic nature of the first video which hinted at the demise of Bear Stearns, Dick Fuld losing his job and taxpayers footing the bill for failing Wall Street investment banks well before the events ocurred. I had no idea, however, that the crisis would reach the levels it has.
