Talk about:

1) "Mainstream economics"
2) stuff china exports to the US
3) inbreds and repubs (might as well hit the teabaggers too)
4) China being geographically larger than the US
5) dope
6) [and most ironically] anti-intellectuals

Your Welcome, Cleveland

I heard in addition to them exporting lots of stuff to us, we also import a lot from them.  Double edged sword these mainstream economics.  If only pot was legal. . . f*cking teabagging inbreds

The stock market is being artificially propped up using perpetual quantitative easing (fake money)

Just a guess, but every time they threaten to stop, the market tanks. We won't really know until they really do cut it off.

Also, there is a weird kind of reverse logic going on with the traders. When bad economic news comes out, normally the market would go down, but the reverse is happening. Bad jobs report means QE will continue, so the market goes up. Good news on housing, the market goes down. The Fed is controlling the markets. JMHO

I think we should stop focusing on the paper pushing industry and focus more on wages, purchasing power, and unemployment levels.

Oooo, is this where I put my cool economics class stories?

Cuz my teacher in Intermediate Macro completely called the financial collapse every day in class during the spring of 08. Each day would start and he would show some chart and basically say the economy was going to be mumped in a year and that 08 grads should be fine but it would suck to be an 09 grad...I was an 09 grad and was all like lol yeah whatever crazy econ guy....and then the market tanked in fall of 08 and I was all like DAMMIT.

Cool story huh?!

Economists are generally pretty poor at consistently making accurate forecasts.

Also, why doesn't anyone complain about the government artificially propping up the housing market? It's much easier for someone to invest in the stock market than real estate.

Why don't you just flip your house instead of complaining about it?

I can't afford to buy a house, but I'm worried there's going to be another national housing bubble in the next year or two.

yeah, everyone is saying that.  but as you say, it's impossible to know.  everyone was saying the same thing last year about bonds, but when they finally got around to tapering, bonds went up.

the housing/financial crisis "started" (became obvious) in the summer-fall of 2007.
