A Note of Thanks and Plans for the Future
First off I wanted to say thanks for everyone that stops in here and makes things fun for me. I enjoy writing about the crazy financial world and I am glad that some find the content here to be informative, helpful, or just funny. I aim to please!
With 2010 rolling in you may see some changes here at Economic Disconnect. The major one is that I may not be posting as often and this is for two reasons:
1) There is not much to write about. A long time ago I used to have fun with headlines and used sarcasm to try and warn against crazy monetary policies. Now my "fake" news is real day in day out. In any time in history (or in any country not named the USA) this would have consequences, all now just shrug and move along. Case in point, this long list of "In 2009 I Learned That..." from The Reformed Broker that includes such silliness as:
-Stuart Varney (Fox Business Network): it is possible to borrow a trillion dollars, print a trillion dollars and nationalize a big chunk of the American economy, and still see the biggest nine month stock market rally in three generations!These are all both funny and sad at the same time.
-Cody Willard (Fox Business Network's Happy Hour): when the Republican/Democrat Regime in power redistributes trillions of dollars from the renters and savers to the bankers, most bank stocks will go up. A lot.
-Lawrence McDonald (Author, A Colossal Failure of Common Sense): $10 trillion will always buy you 4000 DOW points.
-Howard Lindzon (Elevator Inspector): the FED is running the best Ponzi scheme EVER.
So that said, I may have either a lack of material or a lack of interest in writing about the same thing every single day. Of course I love finance too much to stay away, but maybe a bit less would be better.
2)I need to get back into some kind of shape. Between the holidays and a busy work schedule I have gained 7 pounds over the past 2 months and I am never, ever over 150 lbs! This needs to come off as my yearly Caribbean vacation comes in March or April. To that end I have a brand new heavy bag/speed bag/double end bag set up in the basement so I can train like in the old boxing days. This will come in handy should Bill Gross ever take me up on the steel cage match I have challenged him to several times!
So yes posting may be a little lighter, but the posts may be longer and more broad in coverage so that may make up for the numbers.
In any case I look forward to another year of back and forth as we walk along a path never tried before.
Happy New Year!
Have a good night.
