Krugman: "This is the start of another Great Depression"

And I am appropriately depressed.

-- Badtux the Depressed Penguin


  1. You know its bad when buying a bond at minus interest, or in other words, paying for the privilege of buying a bond decreasing in actual value. I remember the old days when bonds paid interest.

  2. I'm holding on okay, but then I did see it coming and got as ready for it as I could.

    I actually look forward to the challenge of it. I enjoyed most of my youth as a poor country boy and learned many things about how to get by.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
