Stock market crashes, and links. Will the market rebound?

Stock market looks poised to crash again December 12th as a $50 billion dollar ponzi scheme is exposed.  Jim Cramer has called out the Securities and Exchange Commision for failing to enforce the law, failing to stop market manipulation and conspiracy by hedge funds out of control.   The markets unfriendly nature is driving money out of the market and keeping participation low.   The job picture is also getting worse with jobless claims hitting a 17 year high for unemployment benefits filed in a single week at 577,000 new applications.   

Stock market crashed 444 points November 20th 2008 to Dow 7500 today, and looks poised to go lower as the market rarely bottoms on a Thursday.   Markets typically bottom on Monday morning.   Dow 6800 stands out in my mind as a low from the early 1990’s.  I believe that more accurately compares to the economic uncertainty facing the world going forward.  Jobless claims hit a 16 year high.  Possible even lower if any major unexpected   To be honest with the continued destruction of jobs around the world; complete disregard for balancing the budget or impossible task, and environmental concerns of the world it is hard to believe that change will not occur.  Karl Marx the socialist recognized as one the great minds of Economic study predicted capitalism would come to an end as the capitalist systems fails to be able to meet the worlds needs. 

   This types of thinking typically occurs along side of great fear in people at the bottom of capitalist markets; but, this time may be different.  Technology advancements have allowed us to do so much more with so much less.  The work of one hundred men can be done by one man in many areas of business.  So clearly a more responsible society would disregard or accommodate business’s that continue to allow us to raise standards of life while achieving sustainability with the environment.  In order  not destroy the planet for future generations.  Many corporations across a wide spectrum of industries are closing up shop or will in the next twelve month’s due to negative margins and a negative market out look.  

 October 10th 2008 comments – Why does the market crash every day? The market can go to zero.  If people  want the money, and the system becomes insolvent.  Stocks can go much lower.  Cities ask when will the credit markets reopen for city bonds.  That is laughable in a way.  Why would someone buy debt in a system that is capital isolated, and losing money increasingly as far as the eye can see?  Stocks that make profits should hold Steady here.  IBM looks way undervalued.  I like Buy IBM at any price, even though,  all stocks go down in a bear market.  With a few exceptions.  Government can step in and manage stock assets in ways that business has failed to do or better align interests in ways that make more sense.  The American government has proposed taking a 79% ownership in the new AIG corporation.   Other than the $440,000 part executives threw to celebrate the recent loans.  Topstockblog see the moves as halfway sensible  with the government ownership.   Why do we have to pay for houses forever?  We don’t.  Why doesn’t George send checks to all Americans.  He has authorization to sign the checks.  A most diversified society is the best one.  That is the American dream.  What are constitutional signers agreed to value above, and beyond greed.

 

(Original June 6th 2008 post) The  U.S. stock market crashed nearly 400 points today http://www.yahoo.com/s/895280  (Friday June 6th. 2008).   The largest increase in jobless claims increase in 22 years, and oil per barrel rising $10 in a single day.  Given the large amount of the increase in oil today, and over the last year oil is probably going much higher.

The stock market was up 200 points yesterday.  Some people had become more bullish on the market going forward with Carl Ichann a major investor reiterating his wish to sell yahoo at a premium of $32.  Interestingly Carl seemed to think $32 was a fair price in part because of the effects of inflation in the future making the premium of $32 a fair price.  Some investors jumped at his latest comments that sent the market up 200 points were now caught long.  The market always is challenging.  Historically the market is very volatile with inflation in the water.

 The Kirk report http://www.thekirkreport.com/    talks about the likely hood of further weakness.  The bottom that many hoped was set in March is probably not the bottom.   With so much trouble in the world and major support being broken putting big doubts in the theory.     I expect more investors piling into oil and out of stocks Monday.  I think the low could be set Monday if the sell off is big enough or some time in the next couple of weeks.

Topstockblog wants to be the third economic prophet to the modern world

  Tostockblog is here to share a peaceful, accepting , understanding, and respectful message.  People of the world need to be safe to maintain a secure, fair, happy, productive, and largely successful world .   Trade, and debts founded in more than a pursuit of profits.  

    Taxes should be lowered over time.  High taxes encourage fraud and non-payment of taxes.  Taxes pay debts; not, create free money for debt holders.  Tax on consumption is part of resolving material differences for wealth.  Wealth is something in the heart and mind.  Too much greed leads people to waste, and fear ones neighbors.   Taxes should occur with the function of maintaining services, and a slight deficit to target inflation.   Careful planning by the people.  Addressing individual needs of those that do not contribute to society may be contrary to profits; but, is cleary the productive path to protecting boundaries. 

    Education can and should be used as a measure of a societies ability to meet needs.  People will be able to work hard, contribute to society, protect the future, and provide for their families.   Corn should not be used for oil. Drugs should be taxed, and discouraged.   Humans have a right to drink and use drugs to meet needs.  Some people are always going to use drugs to the extent this can not and is not a mission of god to control drug users should not be prosecuted, and drug sellers should be heavily taxed. Some people enjoy drugs.  Helping and encouraging people is the logical evolution of time.
Values of supporting neighbors, finding common ground, protecting boundaries, and meeting needs are the driving forces behind trade.  Dishonesty and inappropriate influence are disruptive forces that threaten the world we live in. 
   Some profit is ok.  Inflation is better than deflation? Maybe not, I actually found that under doing more with less principles goods would cost less, and we would be able to meet more needs. Both thoughts could be logically argued for with making accounts for realities as understood.
      Targets and honest pursuits of the targets seems to be effective in helping to balance risks to the economy.  is key keeping people knowledgeable, and on board with the expectation that will be likely be near target.  With inflation, deficit spending is in part erased with time made up by a broad  nu number of realities. Most notable doing more with less resources at the foundation of my prophecy of intelligent comment to share with the world.  

    Careful communication, clear goals,  and a participant friendly economy.  he world does not respond aggressively enough for human boundaries.  Far worse than anything prescribed by books, people, or imagination.  
        The world has enough resources to meet reasonable needs and wants of all people.  It is the lack of congruency, and inability to reconcile the differences.   We all have different wants.  With the removal of harsh judgements on each other is reasonable.   We must learn from the past, and respond our understanding to the right direction with gained knowledge.   People should not be discouraged to detach from others.  Population management is part of sharing a planet. We need to be careful as humans.  More respectful of cows.   Cooks earn their money in making food taste better.  We all need to earn are place when allowed opportunities to contribute presents itself.  To be responsibile for the future as humans.  

  Muslims were promised a third prophet of foreign decent.   Muhammad called for a power to rise up to lead the Muslim people to salvation.   A christian is supposed to rise up and show himself to the people as a saint.  Topstockblog rose up, and selflessly gave his life Human boundaries and inspiration is a start to finding the third prophet.    I think the answers are in science, reasonable human rights, and application of current agreements of international agreements.  A foreigner is something very distinct from Muslim culture in my opinion.  Someone who is peaceful and all seeing.  Someone who meets the needs of the people.

    No more violations of human rights. To best deal with threats of violations of boundaries of all kinds. An understanding of all the existing threats need to be more clearly understood.  Do not let greed be your leader.   Society should question how some one acquires their wealth. To the extent lawyers, and doctors can take large sums of money from the public and high level procedures are not accessible to many that would like to learn more should be questioned.   More appreciation, communication, education, free time, honesty, personal responsibility, security, and uderstaning is the answer.  The answer to  under doing more with less principles. 
   A reasonable common enemy for people should be human suffering and environmental damage.  
Corporations could focus on their intrinsic value if enough people are ready to recognized such.   More  A value can be attributed to a long term ability to add value to society when measured for sustainability, happiness, respect for all,   a targeted inflation an inflation rate that targets for all defiict spending, over accumulation of wealth, and changes in the worlds economies.  God must be allowed to be viewed by others as they believe for ever.

          Humans can not rule over one another with out clear boundaries.   The United States has a strong framework for success.   Provided appropriate adjustments are made to account for human needs domestic and abroad.  Focusing on the common enemy of environmental concerns is good.  The common enemy of the world is dishonesty, homelessness, hunger, sadness, those who promote violence, human rights violations, long term threats, and a positive community energy.  Addressing unrational accumulation of assets in a confined space only makes sense to a point.  Crossing this point of greed makes accumulation of wealth destructive.   Particularly with short falls of greed and human error ineffectively accounted for.  Through careful judgement we can improve the function of society, and human benefit delivered to people.   People should be allowed to study educational opportunities with the benefit of the entire population in mind.  People all want different things.  It is important for the government led by the people to fulfill potential of society.   The use of environmentally friendly solutions should be promoted with rapid support and careful judgement to account for past mistakes.   Much environmental pollutants have been released through war and violence.

     Banks needs to function regardless of profit.  In fact, banks pursuit of profit leaves 15% of homes currently unoccupied because of foreclosures.   to deliver community ownership thought housing and business needs.  Accounting for the intrinsic value of happiness and To study religion as they and their family choose to do so.  Not to shun others for religious differences.   

    Security of nations can be met by fullfilling basic needs.  In developed nations surplussGovernment debt is ok if all nations work together.   Armies of all nations could further merge together.     The current frame work of the United Nations must be expanded, and better regulated for moral development.
