Jump to Year: 2013
05/18/2013 Week ending May 18, 2013: The IRS scandal comes nipping at the Obama administration. We anticipate an earthquake shortly (US West Coast), release the book "Real Time Machines: The Future is an App) and we delve into consumer prices out at mid-week. They show persistent deflation in the 7% annualized range.
05/11/2013: Week ending May 11, 2013: There's not much except money printing to report this week, so the markets roar on to new highs. We've got a bet on Chicago for flu to arrive. And the gov't is cracking down on 3D gun printing. Obama goes to Texas to take credit for job growth, which makes local republicorps bristle, and so goes another ho-hum.
05/04/2013: Week ending May 4, 2013: Two biggies this week: The jobs report continues to be stuck because even while 163,000 jobs (or so) were claimed created, a close inspection reveals 193,000 were estimated into existence. Then there were housing prices, stuck in 2003 levels - again, but compared with that year, it was up year on year...
04/29/2013 Week ending April 27, 2013: Congress began to wake up this week, holding hearings on DHS ammunition purchases, and by stopping furloughs of the nation's air traffic controllers. The Bush family dynasty is likely to try for three out of three with talk of Jeb Bush running in 2016 which - against the backdrop of Hillary Clinton running sets me off on a YAB YAC Yack... Markets are still holding, so we wait patiently for sell in May and go away...
04/22/2013 Week ending April 20, 2013: The Boston Marathon terrorism case takes center stage this week as the city goes into something approaching a martial law lockdown, one suspect dies while another is captured, though seriously wounded in the shootout. On the market side, there wasn't much happening except for a modest decline into options expirtation week. But in another odd example of such, I felt impossibly tired on day this week...the kind of tired that usually preceeds a major earthquake, so I noted in the colume. And, right on schedule, a 7.2 shaker hits the Kamcvhatka peninsula area with some readers suggesting I should take up betting on such events...
O4/15/2013 Week ending April 13, 2013: Gold takes a major beat-down as the week winds up. And we made a spectacular call telling readers about Bitcoin on the brink when it was ~$150. It later declined to just $55. And, for the believers in the myth of robust recovery, we note in the latest retail figures that autos are about the only thing keeping this economy afloat.
04/08/2013: Week ending April 6, 2013: The main economic feature this week is the drop of the labor participation rate to the lowest levels since 1979. The number suggest a second dip may be in the works. Bitcoins continue their climb and it looks - for now - like the bidding wars are back in some of the nation's hottest real estate markets (Bay area) while languishing in others (Detroit). Something for everyone...
O4/01/2013 Week ending March 30, 2013: 'Kid Korea' is acting up again and declares his war footing. In Cyprus, little people are spared but big people face 60% haircuts at the week ends. And in economic news, housing looks good in this week's report, until you look at the price chart- which shows essentially no change. Another DOA stat? (If you insist, then...) GDP is growing at a one-tenth of one percent annual rate.
03/23/2913: Week ending March 23, 2013: Major point this week is the attempt to steal the savings of consumers and business in Cyprus through a direct (although graduated) tax on savings. After threats to government, was back to the drawing board as we await another bad idea shortly. North Korea is still saber rattling and Obama was tripping - to Israel this week. Then there was much in the WuJo department including George having another one of those precognitive dreams....
03/16/2013: Week ending March 16, 2013: Consumer prices and their precendent Producer prices were both up this week as we patiently wait for the bond market implosion which is sure to come when someone besides us figures out that paper money can be made-up of demand. On the more positive side of news, the Black Pope (as in first Jesuit) came to office, and this has end of worlders counting the days. And with the market in the stratosphere, we wonder if maybe they aren't onto something.
03/09/2013: Week ending March 9, 2013: Tripping through the first real week of squestration, we notice not much has changed, except the market has taken off like a shot. Then we have a sick queen, dishonest writers, a couple of major storms and some earthquake predictions to worry about...
03/02/2013 Week ending March 2, 2013: The very weak recover continues amidst claims that everything's OK. And the latest numbers (personal savings) let's on things may not be so well. Unemployment is Europe is now just a shade under 12 percent and we discuss whether dogs are a good investment for preppers....
02/23/2013 Week ending February 23, 2013: The CPI came out this week but isn't much changed. We consider the ongoing sequestration warnings, andmost of the economic news is blah - not very inspiring. And in Ellijay, GA. we learn that almost every hobby has one of those sinking feelings attached to it...
02/16/2013: Week ending February 16, 2013: There was a pretty interesting explosion of a meteor over the Russian Urals this week which injured more than a thousand people. After a meteoric rise, the stock market more or less stood still for options expiration week. Federal Reserve M1 currency printing seems to be slowing - inflation fears? And for Valentine's Day, some ponders on what Love really is...I mean besides a business model...
02/08/2013: Weekend ending February 8, 2013: Earthquakes are getting out of trend channel bounds with the latest shakes in the Southwest Pacific. We have to wonder about the government's latest arms purchases. And markets are looking to take direction...but from where?
02/02/2013: Week ending February 2, 2013: New unemployment numbers pale a bit compared to what the Street had been hoping for. The WEC/Davosians are hopeful world governments will print up money to the tune of $14-trillion to paper over declines. And we tune up the column with an Entities section.
01/25/2013 Week ending January 25, 2013: We notice the North Koreans are predicting their own success at a nuke test and that they plan to aim their missiles at the USA. At Davos, leaders are talking about the need for a $14-trillion stimulus package and with some folks in Europe whining about the weather we point out there's a good reason for the cold: It's winter!
01/19/2013 Week ending January 19, 2013: We look at whether Washington has the potential to turn into a City-State as the WH ups the number of signatures on online petitions up to 100,000 from its present 25,000. On the economic front, gold is recovering from recent lows and the markets gains as well; does this portend a late spring devaluation of the dollar as part of an international currency realignment? Plus our usual wit and dour humor...
01/14/2012 Week ending January 12, 2013: More drought concerns, some new earthquake predictions and a dangerously low Mississippi as we look ahead to some new economic data which turn out right in the middle of expectancies. Which means a higher Dow and that in turn punished the metals a bit and the large question to be asking in background is this: are we in a bond bubble?
01/07/2013 Week ending January 5, 2013: After some serious brinksmanship, the so-called fiscal deficit is suddenly fixed and the market roars to the upside. Whether it will actually 'stick' is a different issue. 2012 researcher Patrick Geryl is back - with an eye toward March-April of 2013 now...and we look at famine in the wings as the drought persists.
12/29/2012 Week ending December 29, 2012: The blame game over the fiscal cliff and related developments dominated the week. Still, Poppy Bush was in hospital and the Mississippi River was at dangerously low levels which could impact the nation's breadbasket.
12/24/2012 Week ending December 22, 2012: This was the week that the stock market couldn't figure out what to do, the SecState no-showed for a hearing into the Benghazi embassy killings, and no, the Mayan calendar didn't seem to forecast the end of the world, after all.
12/17/2012 Week ending December 15, 2012: The world has another major earthquake right on schedule. There's a resurgence in US involvement as 3,000 soldiers head back into Iraq and now 400 (with Patriot missles) to Turkey. The markets complete a kind of rolling top which may signal the end of a smaller wave (ii) bounce and we're just a couple of weeks from the end of the world.../
12/10/2012 Week ending December 8, 2012: The weekly unemployment figures showed a drop to 7.7%, but not without some massive jiggering. The stock market is inb a bit of a bounced which should be resolved in the next week or two, and the matter of things disappearing and reappearing is back in our WuJo ;dept. just in time for the major 7.3 earthquake (right on schedule) this week.
12/01/2012 Week ending 12/01/2012 We notice the Treasury Secretary didn't do so well in presenting the republicorps with a budget, and no, it's not supposed to get laughter. We await developments on earthquake predictions, markets continue to rally after the turkey's gone, and gold and silver remain stuck in their recent trading range.
11/25/2012 Week ending November 23, 2012: The major story of the week is the flare-up in the Middle East where Gazans started launching rockets again, but the situation ended the week in a rickety truce. Then there was an amazing, although not unexpected rally in financial markets going into the holiday weekend.
11/117/2012 Week ending November 17, 2012: General Petraeus' resignation rocks Washington, the market looks for a reason to rally, and finding none, continues its decline while another earthquake prediction comes in...
11/10/2012 Week ending November 10, 2012: Barack Obama is in for another term as president, there is a disturbing trend in earthquake predictions coming from 20120 researcher Patrick Geryl's work, and the markets, looking at falling earnings and the much-touted fiscal cliff, does the reasonable thing and begins some falling off a cliff on its own.
11/1 11/03/2012 Week ending November 3, 2012: The Markets put on something of a rally to kiss the underside of the 16-week trend line, but by week's end they resume hinting at the reality of the Second Depression. A major storms hits the Northeast - the first in 38-years and people go somewhat nutty - and a discussion about chemtrails which while I don't rule them out, I note that I have yet to see anything while flying that it definitively a chemtrail...
10/28/2012 Week ending Sunday October 28, 2012: A number of key economic indicators are out, but northing earthshaking. Speaking of which, 2012 researcher Patrick Geryl has gotten a huge hit with a 7.7 quake on the 27th up in the Queen Charlotte Islands- a quake Geryl quite publicly forecast well in advance. A hurricane heads for Washington - will it postpone the election?
10//20/2012 Week ending 10/20/2012: A few economic numbers are out. West coast ports look weak and the price of dairy goods is likely to head up because of input costs. Presidental politics slugs along with Romney showing strength now, which could to be good for markets
10/13/2012 Week ending October 13, 2012: Producer prices are going through the roof on an annualized basis and the Fed is blowing the embers of money supply hard as the possibility of a double-did looms. Presidential politics sees the veep wannabes match up and a major wujo festival with lots of oddnesses this week.
06/2012 Week ending October 06/2012: New unemployment figures come out and as a number of readers note, the number are simply too good and appear "made up". Plus a presidential debtate this week leaves Romney with life life and then a long collection of Wujo articles and notes in the Friday section...
09/29/2012 Week ending September 22, 2012: We expect to end the week only slightly down since this is the quarter ending and wall st. bonuses are set. Much talk about WuJo, Great Comets and earth changes to come. Dawn over the monkey patch looks at big picture data and we consider a major drop in Durable Goods...
09//22/2012 Week ending September 22, 2012: Some serious wujo type events are about as we wonder if things "coming and going" are indications of a big change in human events. But our real focus was on Wall Street, where events are shaping up again like a big rolling top... so will markets be down into the election?
09/16/2012 Week ending September 15, 2012: Massive demonstrations against the US and an ambassador are killing over an anti-Islamic film. But down on the Street, the real action was the Fed cutting loose with $40-billion a month into the foreseeable future as part of QWC - Quantitative Easing Condinuously.
09/10/2012 Week ending September 8, 2012: Has the jobs picture improved, ot just the writing of press releases about jobs? Gold has another very good week, WuJo incidents are on the rise, and now TSA us testubg drinks INSIDE supposedly "secure" areas...another power play?
09/03/2012 Week ending September 1, 2012: Patrick Gerl makes some earthquake predictions based on his research into 2012 and they come in "close enough fort govt. work". The usual with the markets - not going much of anywhere with a side order of holiday optimism with a long weekend ahead. Gold is holding its own and then some, however...
08/27/2012 Week ending August 25, 2012: The weekend quake swarm in southern California aside, there wasn't much hard news this week except that the market could be putting in a rolling end of summer peak (we'll see...) and the Congressional Budget Office is out with some of the dangers of sequestration...which was never a plan - more like a poison pill to get congress to do something...which shows you how well that's working out!
08/18/2012 Week ending August 18, 2012: We're back from a half-round-America tour, but the world seems pretty much unchanged. The Consumer Price Index remained calm, there wasn't much in the way of politics other than hints at the race card being played on the Obama side with "chains" remarks, and then there was the Fed - kicking up money printing, but so what else is new?
08/10.2012 Week ending August 11, 2012: Grain and food prices are going to edge up with the expanding drought. A Romney running mate to be announced this weekend (Ryan) and we consider some advances in time-perception engineering.
08/03/2012 Week ending August 3, 2012: New unemployment figures are out - and no surprise, they are only good if youi look at them without reference to a still-falling labor participation rate. We also had an interesting discussion of using etheric energy to create rain, whi8le we wait to see how/when the Middle East is going to blow up.
07/30/2012 Week ending July 28, 2012: Fairly quiet summer week: Syria pre-war moves continued, the head of North Korea gets hitched, the Olympics tee off and people are having odd dreams about floods in low-lying areas.
07/24/2012 Week ending July 21, 2012: Batman shooter strike in Aurora, CO, amidst many odd timing clues. Radiation measurement questions abound, and we continue our tour of America looking for the perfect place to live....
07/17/2012 Week ending July 14, 2012: Well, well: M1 is up 16% year on year and consumer spending is up 11% annualized. Did I hear someone say "Deflation is affoot? The republicorps are planning to serve up Condi-Mitts to voters, at least that's what a Drudge poll seems leaning toward. And yes, RoboWaiters are going to whach a whole new slice of those precious few remaining jobs here in the Checkbook Republic...
0/709/2012 Week ending July 7, 2012: The newest unemployment numbers come in disappointing to markets, the big deal in physics is the Higgs Boson (or something like it) seems to be found, and we start a trip across America looking for the best possible for the later years of "The Dream."
07/02/2012 Week ending July 1, 2012: Missing from our travels - sorry
06/23/2012 Week ending June 23, 2012: George gets whipsawed by this week's big decline on Wednesday, the situation in the middle east continues to warm up, but a kind of summer malaise seems in place with most news of the week stuck on "boring."
06/12/2012 Week ending June 16, 2012: The CPIO comes out and we look at the upcoming elections in Greece and Egypt as key to what kind of world there will be as the EU faces devolution and Arab Spring turns bust as the Muslim Brotherhood stands to win in Egypt.
06/02/2012 Week ending June 9, 2012: Usual stuff: fighting increasing in Syria and a good discussion of the higher cost of higher ed.
06/02/2012 Week ending June 2, 2012: Lots of action in the market this week, mostly to the downside, but there was a huge - $66 pop in gold on Friday which we figure means someone is in trouble so our outlook for next week is sad to grim. Elsewhere, one of our best ever WuJo stories provides something of a break from things like an 8.2% unemployment rate...06.09/2012
05/29/2012 Week ending May 26, 2012: We look at some dandy eclipse pictures, consider the markets as being in (ii) of 2 of 1 of III down (if that makes any sense to you) and serve up our usual jaundiced look at presidential sillytics. Overall, the "sell in May and go away" seems done, but when will the summer rally arrive?
05/21/2012 Week ending May 19, 2012: The weekend should be interesting with the G8 and NATO meetings, the markets have major a major decline to support, we look at the odd intersection of gay rights and UFO and I'm sure there's something in this week's report that will offend everyone who's even slightly thin-skinned...
05/12/2012 Week ending May 12, 2012: Lousy week for the markets, but not us perma-bears. There was a dust-up at JPMorgan that cost about $2-billion in trading, we go ghost-hunting in Vicksburg, MS on our way back from a writer's conference and I unveil my coup d dough: The money supply-corrected S&P Index which "sees all, shows all." You won't want to miss it.
04/29/2012: Week Ending May 5, 2012: Jobs report, QR Codes go crazy, SurvivalWoman wonders if antioxidants are part of prepping and we head for Macaon, GA for the National Association of Newspaper Columnists meeting...
04/22/2012 Week ending April 28, 2012: A Special Inspector General says the public impression that TARP was a freebie are wrong - to the tune of nearly $200-billion (and there are other costs....) A double-dip pulls into view with word that the GDP growth rate is collapsinjg. And plenty of WuJo this week, too..
04/21/2012: Week ending April 21, 2012: I get after all kinds of things this week, but a lot of discussion about pending quakes since not much point of having a global economy if quakes take it all apart. Then there's the wearing out keyboard problem plus the global markets are in a position to take a swan dive into the ol' tank in coming weeks as this year's Sell in May and go away..." axiom could be a doozy.
04/14/2012 Week ending April 14, 2012: Is here...
04.07/2012 Week ending April 7, 2012: No markets on Friday of this week due to Good Friday, but there was a pretty decent jobs report on Thursday which has us leaning toward the bullish case into summer, or at least into seasonal weakness expected the second or thrid week of April, And the possibility of a solar "kill shot" comes up...which might dampen bullish spirits, or turn them toward, oh, medium-well, or so...
3/31/2012 Week ending March 31, 2012: National Stand Around Day sees a world full of marches and a major lotto drawing which didn't have our names on it. For those interested in the deadly arts, we hold a couple of armchair war-gaming exercises, and for the rest, George becomes bullish expecting the market to stumble up.
3/262012 Week ending March 26, 2012: A report from the Comptroller of the Currency suggests that derivbatives aren't shrinking very fat (so much for a repentant financial industry). In Florida and elsewhere, several cases of Blind Justyice have people buying guns in record numbers and Global Markets take a pause...
03/17/2012 Week ending March 17, 2012: Well, we made it through the week, but not without a flat employment report and a bunch of other stuff...
03/10/2012 Week ending March 10, 2012: Besides a video that's gone viral among the under 25 crowd, which admits to being an experiment, and the occurrence of a credit event in Greece over bonds, massive twisters and such, we wonder what else is to be emerging as a shift to release language is due.
03/03/2012 Week ending March 3, 2012: We enjoyed the January personal savings report - which suggests $3,800+ per worker was saved in January of this year. I'm learning to spell the word "reasonable" just inc ase. Sheriff Joe in Arizona says Yep, that Obama birth certificate is likely a forgery, like this is a surprise. And then there's the who matter of go-nowhere markets which seem stuck for almost a month now.
02/25/2012 Week ending February 27, 2012: The Mass Layoff report was good this week, but don't hold your breath - more mass layoffs have already been announced for this spring. Wars aren't free- as we see from looking at the deficit, and middle east discussions keep sounding like it's a race between Syria and Iran over who'll get hit first. Off topic: Root Canal controversy...
02/18/2012 Week ending February 18, 2012: Biggest problem of the week - long term, anyway - is likely to be the Moody downgrading of a bunch of European institutions. Not that the rising CPI is not a concern...or Hillary throwing in to head up the World Bank (oh, great!) but really the Moody action is huge and long term..
02/11/2012: Week ending February 11, 2012: This week, the Obama campaign softened it's anti super PAC stance, events in the Middle East (Syria & Iran) swirled, as the plans were unveiled to launch up to 30,000 unmann3ed drones over America as we've come down with Middle East Drone's Disease here, it seems...
O2/06/12: Week ending February 4, 2012: We were pleased there was a reported improvement in the unemployment rate this week to 8.3 percent, until we realized that more than a million people had disappeared off the workforce and the labor participation rate fell as a result. But never you mind, eh? There was continuing footwork in the Middle East around both Syria and a nuclear Iran, while out back in the shop, we were able to drop about 7.6% off the apparent mass of a paint can top as our part-time quest to bear gravity began to pay off...
01/28/2012: Week ending January 28, 2012: We marvel at how well the economy continues to stumble through. Iran tensions though, just keep building and the Fed's promise of easy money through 2014 leads us into the murky waters of "confusonomics"
01/21/2012 Week ending January 21, 2012: Consumer prices continued to turn in a tame performance in December's numbers released this week. I think there's a chance that we're getting into a serious window of opportunity to invest in solar power, and the usualy strange happenings from around the WuJo...
01/16/2012 Week ending January 14, 2012: We continue seeing "lots of moves on the chessboard" in the Middle East, the stock market wallows along and the outlook for Europe is - as usual punctuated by periodic (and idiotic) claims that just a little more paper and a little more debt will fix things. You betcha...
01/09/2012 Week ending January 7, 2012: Off and then on again, another Shape of Things to Come report will take place in a few weeks. The market has a pretty good week but that may be telling us the top of this move is near. And we wonder if a bird flu outbreak would cause the kind of troubles seen for March 2-9?
01/02/2012 Week ending December 31, 2011: The Gold/Bond split we suggested last year is the clear winner as we compare how different investments fared over 2011. Plus, I have a dream of an earthquake in Asia 6.7 to 6.9..,,
12/24/2011 Week ending December 24, 2011: After patiently waiting for a Santa Claus rally, one shows up, just in time to put the ribbons on what would otherwise have been a losing year for the markets.
12/17/2011 Week ending December 17, 2011: There's a not bad Consumer Price report to ponder, China is testing it's first full-sized aircraft carrier, and we edge toward the Holiday Season with a new Karaoke system - a real earful.
12/10/2011: Week ending December 10, 2011: The market has a flat sort of week while we wait for a Christmas rally but the big deal this week is how the EU has managed to paper-over it's tremendous world-ending mess until March if they can keep passing out the drugs or whatever. Jon Corzine says he doesn't know where all that MF Global money went...surprised?
12/03/2011 Week ending December 3, 2011: A fine majick show this week as the unemployment rate seemed to improve markedly to 8.6%, but upon closer inspection we wonder how did 315-thousand people just "disappear" from the workforce numbers to make it so? Other statistical adventure was found as the stock market put on a huge advance just as the Fed was figuring out new and better ways to help fellow central banksters "paper over" the collapse of Europe for a while longer.
11/28/2011 Week ending November 26, 2011: Not too much going on - we're out on the road on our "half across America" tour, and the prospects are high for a profitable Black Friday.
11/21/2011 Week ending November 19, 2011: Usual crap with declining markets, bs politics, saber rattling in the Middle East and we head out for a trip half around America
11/14/2011 Week ending November 14, 2011: Week ends with a typical preholiday rally while questions linger about which bank(s) may have profited in the MF Global collapse. We look up, but YU55 goes by without a glitch, so another source of world-ending is now needed for the really paranoid.
11/05/2011 Week ending November 11, 2011: Unemployment remains 'stuck' at 9%, we worry about the upcoming YU55 earth/moon crossing next week, and our usual pig-spotting as the misadventures of Europe's overgrown government upon government upon people continues to turn gangrenous.
10/31/2011: Week ending October 29, 2011: The European Union is saved [again] so now we get to see how long this hot patch works. Personal income is reported up but just a tad, and we ask an interesting tax question about political parties...
10/24/2011 Week ending October 22, 2011: The M1 inflation rate ocntinues to soar - money in from foreign countries, or massive printing by the fed? Does it matter? Driving a huge US rally onward. Americans are tranking up in record numbers and with BofA moving $75 trillion of derivatives into their banking unit, who can blame them?
10/14/2011 Week ending October 15, 2011: A strong rally continues in the markets as retail sales rise and there's ome (although it might be mistaken for a song and dance show) about the Eurozone. Just because Slovakia turns down the bailout... And some thoughts on Piri Reis' maps and the Nazca Lines
10/10/2011 Week ending October 10, 2011: We wonder about the latest jobs report, the market rallies a bit on hopes & prayers for a real bailout of the EU (don't hold your breath yet) and we look at the issue of how far our civilization may go into space...
10/03/2011 Week ending October 1, 2001: Despite all the hoopla, the notional value of derivatives continues to increase. Market is down hard again at mid week, and the public is now getting a serious view of those occupy Wall St. types.
09/26/2011 Week ending September 24, 2011: A new web bot run is out, there's a chance of a mkajor rally coming before the meltdown late Octoberish is one way to read it, and what is with all the Sun x-class and M-class flares lately?
09/19/2011 Week ending September 17, 2011: Fine that consumer prices were only up 3.8% annualized, but what about the M1 money printing festival over at the Fed? Going up at an annual rate of almost 37%! Not much change at West Coast ports as we look for signs of life in a flat economy...
09/12/2011 Week ending September 9, 2011: Forest fires engulf thousands of acres in Texas and as the economy declines, president Obama comes out with a jobs package which while nice has no more chance than a snowball in hell...
09/05/2011: Week ending September 3, 2011: As the markets have a dandy run-up into the holiday period, confidence wanes on a sour jobs report Friday and the clouds over the market seem to be reappearing. Gold and s9ilver meantime are moving up again - and this time it's in tandem so we think this could power a drive to new all time highes
08/29/2011 Weekending August 27, 2011: A speech by Ben Bernanke didn't really say much, but it goosed the market into an upside finish to the week, We also see the velocity of money continuing to collapse and a waaaaay overblown hurricane, if you'll pardon the bad play on words.
08/22/2011 Week ending August 20, 2011: Gold is soaring and markets are growling. The CPI picks up a bit in this week's report and we outline some expectations for the market between now and year-end.
08/13/2011 Week ending August 13, 2011: A major up and down week for the Dow with much discussion of wave counts and how I'm trying to rob from the rich and give to me (which then is spread around toi others...) Plus the usual assortment of economic data points and - at week's end - a major hack attack on our site, so you know we've gotten too close to the truth...
08/07/2011 Week ending August 6, 2011: OK, so when we said in Tuesday's column "Back into "Crash Country", what part wasn't clear? We explained renovatio monetae, too, and still, we look like we may hit the skids on the downside Monday and Tuesday of next week. Sometimes I wonder "Why bother?"
07/30/2011 Week ending July 31, 2011: Most of the week was taken up with talk about the federal budget ceiling, but disappearing objects in the WuJo corner were of note, too, along with housing- flat for the month in the Case-Shiller/S&P data.
07/25/2011 Week ending July 23, 2011: Off on a road trip across the great American Southwest, our observations of the port data from places in Texas, New Meixco and Arizona: But the market continues to rally off the 12,309 Dow level and may be headed higher despite this week's release of damning informationi about how the US bailed out foriegn banks in a GAO report... but are we surprised?
07/18/2011 Week ending July 16, 2011: new unemployment figures - stuck at 9.2% but look how gold is moving up on $1,600 with the budget talk and Euro troubles. then we explain how the economic system is like a big conveyor belt - and depending on where you stand - this one is either working great (owners) or its really hosed up (worker perspective.)
07/11/2011 Week ending July 9, 2011: A whole panoply of economic numbers this week, but the biggest of the lot is the stubbornly stuck jobs number which at 9.2% doesn't mention directly the 2+ million jobholders quietly dropped out of statistics for the year, although the 16.2% underemployment rate is mentioned....
07/01/2011 Week ending July 2, 2011: These is a cure for the summertime blues down on Wall St. - a Major rally on. That and DSK is back from being 'sexicided" and a new webbot run is out...
06/27/201 Week ending June 25, 2011: The markets close under Dow 12,000 (will it be for long?) while we take a long road trip from Texas to Detroit to catch up on column writing and talk about sights along the way - a kind of grandiose street level economics report.
06/20/2011 Week ending June 18, 2011: So-so inflation data is coming in, while the globval markets hold their breath waiting for a paper-over of Greece (and the UK and Spain and...) to appear.
06/11/2011 Week ending June 11, 2011: We propose a global crash libretto as the we question Monday whether 12,000 on the Dow can hold - which as predicted, failed to hold this week. Plus more data suggesting things are not all happy in our future peeks out from latest data.
06/05/2011 Week ending June 4, 2011: Main features this week were employment data refusing to improve and an outbreak of e. coli in Europe which promises to create a whole new level of force police once the implications sink in a bit,
05/30/2011 Week ending May 28, 2011: Not much in the way of stats this week, GDP is still fugly, and the Dow drifted down, but the real story is about disaster relif up in Joplin, Mo where my son's a volunteer EMT as bad weather plagues people now - and crop yields later...
05/21/2011 Week ending May 21, 2011: A weekend in bed from gout, Tennessee's overly aggressive policae targeting of out of state vehicles causes us to bag Nashville vacation plans, and a local forest fire teaches us something about preparedness that's not in most 'prepper' books.
05/14/2011 Week ending May 14, 2011: Not very impressive consumer price news - not all bad, but here we go further into the jobless recovery. Trade numbers are just a bigger hole and in our odds & ends, some thoughts of M.C. Esher's fine works.
05/07/2011 Week ending May 7, 2011: New unemployment numbers come out = and the UAS dollar gets some legs under it ('bout time!) but that beats up gold and silver pretty good...
05/02/2011: Week ending April 30, 2011: Housing prices continue to falter, the web bot project issues a new report and we contemplate what's driving the second most deadly tornado season in history. Did I mention housing is still declining?
04/25/2011 Week ending April 23, 2011: The market rally continues, but we forecast once again a $5 move day in silver and a world of quickly changing markets as time r54uns short for conventional investments and normal decision-making...
04/18/2011 Week ending April 16, 2011: As if the Producer Price Inex wasn't enough, along comes the CPI understating (again) the cost of living by a large degree compared with disinterested measures.
04/11/2011 Week ending April 9, 2011: More aftershocks at Fukushima - and new Consumer Debt numbers - which show things like education and cars improving, but credit card sales still weak. Plus a discussion of copyright issues...
04/04/2011 Week en ding April 2, 2011: Main feature of this week was the better-than-expected unemployment rate - which is fine until we report this was the same number of people working as in July 2011. Oh, and let's not forget those still-falling home prices. And what we would be complete without rallying on that kind of news? All as Japanese nuke leak on...
03/28/2011 Week ending March 26, 2011: The problems of leaking Japanese nuclear projects persists, the Libyan 'intervention' has all the hallmarks of turning into another global war, and our guess is California for very near-term large US centered earthquake.
03/19/2011 Week ending March 19, 2011: Troubles in Japan continue to mount up, the US strikes off on another war (without congress actually voting it) this time over (lo9ok surprised!) Libya's oil more than her bothered citizens. And markets drop for the week but the week's end rally was good because of triple witching and friendly bank actions.
03/13/2011: Week ending March 13, 2011: Fractalist Gary Lammert calls a high this week and then...Japan has a major earthquake and nuclear issues threaten.
03/07/2011 Week ending March 5, 2011: The unemployment rate improves to 8.9 percent, but it's a dicey number at best. Libya edges closer to full-on revolution as the price of oil hits the $102-$103 level. And the market does a bit of a mini-slide for the werek until recovering its poise on Friday, for a small gain this week.
02/28/2011 Week ending February 26, 2011: Libya's government (6% of US oil) refuses to step down, the market might be making a turn again to the downside - we'll see - and things that we think we buy but which disappear from shopping carts...
02/21/2011 Week ending February 19, 2011: Silver was confiscated, too, in the previous Depression! Also: Only the most fluoride-damaged thinker could believe the CPI report out this week - and we compare the government's CPI allegations to the M.I.T. Billion Prices Project as well as the Triple A Fuel Gauge Report just as an example. Oh, and GlobalRev sweeps along...
02/14/2011 Week ending February 12, 2011: Egypt heads for a government turnover, and a key IMF considers a market basket to replace the US for denomination of special drawing rights. Can you say "End of empire?" Also, a "keeper" in our discussion of airline business models.
02/05/2011 Week ending February 5, 2011: Everything from an unemployment rate of 9% being reported to a strange phot (what it a wood nymph?) Now, from these two stories, which do you think has a chance of being objectively 'real'?
01/29/2011 Week ending January 29, 2011: As Tunisia rolls over, looks like Egypt is going down our predicted "GlobalRev path next. Markets could be peaking in here, judging by a super resilient top that isn't holding about 12,000 resistance. Mass layoffs level off at decent levels, but is there inflation in the pipeline?
01/22/2011 Week ending January 22, 2011: Not too much in the way of surprises this week. The broad market was down, but the 'tape painters' kept the Dow going up. China's president Hu visits Washington, and some disturbing facts about earth changes are starting to line up...
01/15/2011: Week ending January 15. 2011: Not in the mainstream yet - might take a few days - but the price of food could really move up based on the flooding in Australia and Brazil as the impacts ripple around the world. Still inflation was up only modest in Friday's new VPI report...give it time...
01/08/2011 Week ending January 8, 2011: We consider the newest unemployment data, which was better - IF you believe the workforce dropped. Then we had conflicting economic indicators, a satellite track seems to cover a lot of earthquake territory, and the market looks toppy - again! 01/01/2011 Week ending January 1, 2011: The year wraps up with a market 'on hold' awaiting developments in the new year, earthquakes are acting up a bit this week, and the latest Case-Shiller/S&P Housing report begins - ot my eye - to suggest that the recovery may stall and a second-downturn in housing arrive in 2011.
12/25/2010 Week ending December 25, 2010: A couple of new economic numbers, a big earthquake new Japan and one shortly after down south of the equator, but in our lead-in to Christmas, the most fun was the part where we explored HHO generators for cars and ask "So, do they work?"
12/20/2010 Week ending December 18, 2010: New cost of living figures tell us what we've been planning for is about right - no inflation, no major deflation, just a Fed trying to step on the printing 'gas' about midway between. Troubles continue for Europe, and the winter is colder than hell (duh!) in EU lands.
12/11/2010: Week ending December 11, 2010: New evidence shows check-writing went down an amazing 31 percent in just three years, the Balance of Trade declines, and we consider the possibility of a 'crash-free" depression.
12/04/2010 Week ending December 4, 2010: The Unemployment Rate rises to 9.8% from a previous 9.6% rate, yet despite this, the market has one of its best weeks in months. Due to the month beginning, or something else?
11/27/2010 Week ending November 27, 2010: A Red Friday wind up to a week already highlighted with Irish bailout jitters and a lackluster Christmas season in view. Korea does some shelling, which lauches rumors of war and the TSA debate widens.
11/20/2010 Week ending November 20, 2010: After getting off to a slow start, the TSA protests grow as part of the 'tipping point' and economic indicators such as CPI look non-threatening, except for the little problem of a no-growth mode spells growth for a lot of growth-dependent businesses...
11/13/2010 Week ending November 13, 2010: Things don't look good for the G20 to come up with magickal solutions to the world's problems, the Dow drops for the week and we await our 'tipping point's incept".
11/06/2010 Week ending November 6, 2010: Lemme see: Elections, Fed decision, a unemployment rate report that just doesn't make sense - and if that's not enough, the date of our tipping point moves to the 14th...
11/01/2010 Week ending October 30, 2010: The sun's 87-day cycle shows up with a major (7.7) quake in the south Pacific this week, there's only one week until elections, and the efforts to hold the market up going into elections has been nothing short of amazing. North and South Korea trade pot-shots across the border in advance of the G20... 10/25/2010 Week ending October 23, 2010: Our tkrip 'out west' ends up with some surprisingly difficult obser4vations about the economy...
10/16/2010 Week ending October 16, 2010: Not archived due to travel.
10/.09/2010 Week ending October 9, 2010: A pollution outburst from a dam in Hungary sets off a major linguistic timer to '$5 silver - but which way? The jobs report holds steady while the economy loses 95-thousand jobs for the month, and despite all this, the market sails along to a close of 11,006 and change...
10/02/2010 Week ending October 2, 2010: The GDP is fizzling out, the market may have just finished putting in a new high and Hillary welcomes an old war monger back to the State Dept.
09/27/2010 Week ending September 26, 2010: The numbers from Washington seem to be good reason for sane people to look and pause, but does the market? Hell no...what an odd weak - and is this what blow-off tops are like or is that coming this next week?
09/20/2010 Week ending September 18, 2010: Market's are meandering around what could be highs going into the fall, consumer prices are up slightly Year-on-Year, and we are bothered by reports that the government will try to regulate gold sellers...
09/13/2010 Week ending September 11, 2010: A new economic advisor comes to the White House, Koran burning fails to take hold, and economic data continues to suggest The Grand Muddle...
09/04/2010 Week ending September 4, 2010: The markets have a rousing rally going into the Labor Day weekend, despite being in a vulnerable position, but unemployment hangs stubbornly at 9.6% and housing indicators are either improved vis-�-vis 2009 figures, or worse if you've got a longer memory.
08/30/2010 Week ending August 28, 2010: The Drug Revolution begins in Mexico, the US market continues sliding, completing a five wave (1) down movement and Elaine hears a mysterious hum - as multiple readers report the same thing...
08/23/2010 Week ending August 21, 2010: The fascination between money-seeking and future-telling defined a bit, a couple of 'normal' (whatever that is) ewconomic reports and what something was the best column of the week: The "Let's Pretend'" mode the country seems to be in lately...
08/14/2010 Week ending August 14, 2010: Biggie this week was the the consumer price index numbers and the fact the markets resumed their trending downward. Also at the WuJo there was a lot of discussion about people having problems making measures - almost like reality got a little plastic/elastic at times lately. Passing phenomena?
08/08/06/2010: Week ending August 7, 2010: The unemployment report was unchanged - provided you don't notice the prior month corrections and 131,000 jobs lost - then we had the US training foreign IT workers to compete with our home-grown ones...and then things went downhill from there...
07/31/2010 Week ending July 31, 2010: We go on a quake watch due to linguistics, a rally by the market continues, but looks a little long in the tooth - so George loads up on shorts,. and immigration back-and-forthing in Arizona...
07/24/2010 Week ending July 24, 2010: On the Road: So far, haven't missed a report as we treavel to the PNW on a mix of business and pleasure: Markets doing another up week, but whether we bust through 10,650 and head higher is questionable. Jitters on Bernanke highlight the week, Euro banks pass stress tests except 7, and another one of the weird "George Dreams" shows up.
07/17/2010 Week ending July 17, 2010: markets put on a rousing start to option expiration week, but by the end of the day Friday, the Dow had given up its gains and then some. Deflation in the CPI might have had something to do with it - or the financial regulation bill, although teeth from that are a long way out. Could it be the temporary plug on the Gulf was bad news for the PTB?
07/12/2010 Week ending July 10, 2010: The Fed Consumer Debt Data says we are not out of the woods, a curious UFO case with lots of lights in China, and there were a couple of obvious "No Crash days" in the market to be savored while we could...
07/04/2010 Week ending July 4, 2010: Building tensions all over the pladce! Looks like Israel is pre-positioning for an attack on Iran, oil projections off the Gulf Spill now have East Coast oils inside 90 days, and the economy continue to erode/corrode with 125-thousand jobs lost in the latest reporting month. A happily Holiday Fourth? not in Mr. Grumpy's book...
06/26/2010 Week ending June 26, 2010: G-20 comes up this weekend, the oil continues flowing like crazy with a hurricane eyed, and George explains his mixed feelings on gold.
06/21/2010 Week ending June 19, 2010: Some brain changing thoughts on economics, quadruple witching Friday may mark a significant long-term market high, and BP oil flow estimates keep rising as hopes dim for a quick end of the mess.
06/12/2010 Week ending June 12, 2010: Several economic indicators are out this week, but not too much good. Retail was unexpectedly soft, confidence was OK, BOT was up, and the oil juist keeps on flowing..
06/05/2010 Week ending June 5, 2010: Oil continues to gush from the BP disaster/blue flue/ocean murder. A slightly improved jobs report comes along, but I argue jobs reports no longer matter as larger forces are at work in this economy.
05/31/2010 Week ending May 29, 2010: We ponder the latest SOTTC report from www.halfpasthuman.com, which includes a pessimistic view of the 'top kill' working to stop the blue flue/ocean murder in the Caribbean, and both the EU and US markets seem to take a pre-holiday pause before what looks like a decisive next few weeks...
05/24/2010 Week ending May 22, 2010: Options week brings a little relief to the markets and the pits. Lies about the size of the BP/Gulf Oil Murder spill being bigger than admitted catch up to the public and the market drops more than 400 points for the week - not unexpected, we reckon...but it could have been a lot worse
05/17/2010 Week Ending M ay 14, 2010: Once again a contradiction in the numbers between reported production numbers (way up on a YoY basis) and capacity utilization (down) which leads us to ask many things. Dog (of) poets shows up in Greece, time distortions growing and just for giggles some retail and trade numbers to obfuscate things...
05/10/2010 Week ending May 8, 2010: This week will be remembered for the Dow dropping 1,000 points down to 9,787 to everyone's shock and no, there are no big buyers even at those levels. While people talk accident, we'll be asking if this is the start of primary wave l3 down.. Unemployment up, more troubles in Greece and which PIIG goes next?
05/01/2010 Week ending May 1, 2010: "Irwin Allen's Dream abou5t an oil accident/murder of last week turns into a full up pollution nightmare for the US this week. A small Jewish studies group releases a retranslation of the 10 Commandments. Turns out there are 11. And despite tyhese developments, our main focus remains on money where a turn in the Markets seems at hand as the Big LaBounsky seems to be over.
04/26/2010 Week ending April 24, 2010: The National Sales Tax (VAT) is trial ballooned (again), The "Alien Wars" meme takes form with an oddish NASA 'secret; space launch and in "Irwin Allen's Dreams, some questions about what dreams might mean.
04/17/2010 Week ending April 17, 2010: The SEC takes on Goldman Sachs, and the FCC loses a round in court to opponents of net neutrality. We set out some price targets, but there's a chance this week saw the highs before a big decline starts, but that's always the case, eh?
04/10/2010 Week ending April 10, 2010: Jittery week for the markets, a prequel quake series rumbles around SoCal, and as the week wore on markets started to flirt with the 11,00 level
04/05/2010 Week ending April 2, 2010: Unemployment figures from ADP based on payhroll data aren't anywhere near the huge increase in jobs claimed by BLS, George hgas a weird dream about a coming quake "Wednesday, Los Angeles) and we notice the arrival of a major meme "revolution/rebellion" is really taking hold in headlines now.
03/26/2010 Week ending March 27, 2010: More p0roblems as slow-witted George tries to figuire oiut how GDP can go up with more people unemployed, the Israelis seem committed to expanding settlements in the face of opposition and in the WuJo, people report more time/event distortion.
03/20/2010 Week ending March 20, 2010: China sets up to take over world reserve currency status with the Yuan, while congress sets up to pass a national healthcare plan. Down at the WuJo some odd reports of time distortion and more & more the economy is going two-tracks: Haves and Have-Nots
03/13/2010 Week ending March 13, 2010: A new "Shape of Things To Come" report is out, balance of trade is smaller, but in a world of consumption collapse, that's not surprising now, is it? And then the usual: governments running out of money and the chemtrail debate.
03/06/2010 Week ending March 6, 2010: The employment report comes in abetter than some expected, we peruse shortwave radios, and the amount of energy popping off in quakes this year is astounding... 0
2/27/2010 Week ending February 27, 2010: Not a month after our prediction of multiple 8.0 ('great quakes') Chile gets one much earlier than our forecast of 'after July 7/8th'. markets about flatlined for the week but everyone is watching Greece to see if classic economic reality sets in. Oh - and healthcare goes Lazarus.
02/19/2010 Week ending February 19, 2010: America has its first home-grown suicide bomber as the 'revolution meme' takes hold, markets predictably rally for options expiration week, yet in the large scheme of things, the prospects of the jobs picture improving any time soon and fading...
02/12/2010 Week ending February 12, 2010: While Greece slides toward the abyss, and banksters hold secret meetings in the Arctic and Australia (go figure) we wonder if the linguistics about swine flu variants around Olympics time might have been a heads up about the PIIGS countries of Europe coming down with financial pandemic. In addition, some thoughts on exploitation of intergenerational differences...
02/05/2010 Week ending February 5, 2010: Labor numbers come out about as exzpected - with more than 800,000 jobs being 'disappeared' in the annual corrections festival, suicide bombers now come in the female variety, at the WuJo we talk about orbs and afterlife and the market's decline looks more ominous than ever.
01/29/2010 Week ending January 30, 2010: Talk of a second dip now comes from Davos, the Fed passes on rate changes, rumors of an ancient civilization leaving artifacts and we try a podcasting experiment...
01/25/2010 Week ending January 22, 2010: Markets take a little break from their rally mode, there's a bothersome gap in linguistic data out in the Octobver 2011 area, and we ponder whether the markets are about to 'turn over' and head down after rallying since March.
01/18/2010 Week ending January 15, 2010: Haiti quake is a mess - linguistics say six month 'great' quakes will be along this year so more shaking to come. Inflation by the CPI runs about 5.4% annualized plus the trade gap widens, port data disappoints and George wades into a few financial stocks on the short side.
1/11/2010 Week ending January 8, 2010: A couple of key long-time big spenders and favorites of special interests announce they are leaving congress, the cold weather has us wondering about whether the movie "Day After Tomorrow" is showing up for real, and the Dow continues bumping along marginal new highs.

12/28/2009 Week ending December 26, 2009: The healthcare deal is done - so is it the 'new' depression's version of the CCC or WPA? Then there's the jump again in personal income that has regular folks scratching their heads. And you can't keep a good pope down after a papal knock-down.
12/21/2009 Week ending January 19, 2009: Besides the CPI going up when retirements and SS isn't aside, the week had its good and bad: The jam down of healthcare on the downside, but on the upside, the arrival of a pyramid-shaped UFO over Russia...but "It's all good: We got 'survival beers'...
12/14/2009 Week ending December 12, 2009: Plans for a "Stability Police Force" come out in a Rand report, the mess on Wall Street continues to defy gravity, and Climategate just keeps getting more and more interesting. Budget deficit headed for raising, too since spending money is sooo much fun...
12/07/2009 Week ending December 5, 2009: The unemployment picture improves by 2-10th's of one percent and with a big treasury auction in the wings, the price of gold drops $50 from new all-time highs by week's end.
11/30/2009 Week ending November 28, 2009: Likely the biggest story this week was Climategate - wherein 60 MB opf zip file ratted out climate-change academics as junk science manipulators of this and that. Big holiday rally, but a bigger pre-holiday decline for markets such that the Dow lost 9 points for the week - spoilt by Dubai's problems.
11/23/2009 Week ending November 20, 2009: G\eorge & Elaine do 2012 - the movie, retail sales seem flat to down when you back out prices to unit volumes, and there's the matter of gold pressing up through 1135 for the week...
11/16,2009 Week ending November 14, 2009: Trade Gap is back, problems ahead for the internet under the guise of copyright enforcement, and the G20 looks to be engaged in global synchronized inflation which probably means much higher precious metals prices to come. Look surprised, wouldja?
11/9/2009 Week ending November 7, 2009: The stock market bounces off a major support line, gold moves toward 1,100 an ounce and unemployment passes the 10% mark a little too easily.
11/2/2009 Week ending October 31. 2009: In the wake of the Oct 25/26 linguistics turn date th4e issue is whether swine flu or collapsing markets will be the main feature of the coming weeks.

10/26/2009 Week ending October 24, 2009: A couple of good moves for the economy, mass layoffs down and a few other less than end-of-world numbers as we await our 'emotional turn period' next week. 7 banks reorg and International Paper shuts down plants...

09/26/2009 Week ending September 26, 2009: What an eminently forgettable week! Fed does nothing, the New World Order takes more moves forward at the G-20 summit, but for the most part, the top looks to be in and now we just wait for things to come crashing down...

08/31/2009 Week ending July 29, 2009: Gov't makes plans to seize the Internet - just in case - while S-curves which projected the possibility of soaring bank reorganizations are getting filled. Then there's the latest batch of stats...

08/17/2009 Week ending August 15, 2009: Summer of Hell is building, as town hall meetings get interrupted and canceled by members of congress, the 6th largest bank failure in US history is recorded and we can begin to thumb our noses at those skeptical of the 'second depression' - not that we wanted to be right, or anything, but still...
08/10/2009 Week ending August 8, 2009: Another web bot hit as we get our 'temporal marker' on August 3/4 with a Baja quake that fulfills expected duality language. Then we have this week's 9.4% un employment numbers, bolstered by the disappearance of people from the workforce...

07/27/2009 Week ending July 25, 2009: New web bot run is released and no, no reason to party based on what it expects. The market continues to rally though, which gives me hope that some targets I lay out for the rally (and subsequent decline) will let me load up on the short side in time.

Trade gap shrinks and globalism withers, and GD2 (Global Depression 2) makes it into UrbanDictionary.com. Odd that I should be writing about GD2 since prior to 1997 and now it's going de voux..but better late than.....oh, you know!
07/06/2009 Week ending July 4, 2009: We consider the implications of seven banks (30 offices) closing this week as the Dow eroded a bit and the Holiday bounce effect didn't exactly overwhelm us this year.

06/22/2009 Week ending June 20, 2009: I bemoan why it is that bailouts are necessary when the AT&T breakup was such a fine prototype of how to handle businesses that were 'too big to fail' - just make 'em smaller!

06/15/2009 Week ending June 13, 2009: We still are finding out about that huge AF 447 disappearance with 50 bodies recovered by week's end, and the economy continues to rally, but for how long?

This will likely be THE financial story at the root of all others to follow over the balance of the year like the market collapse I expect this fall. Here's the root... 05/16/2009 Week ending May 16, 2009: The markets pull back a bit, perhaps a prequel to a drop below 8,000 (?) and we explore a report of people hearing "voices" - what's this all about?

03/14/2009 Week ending March 14, 2009: The Bond Dude says if we really need inflation to overpower deflation, why not declare a 10% wage hike for everyone? And the market rallies a bit. So is the bottom in?

02/21/2009 Week ending February 21, 2009: Markets continue to tank with the Dow taking out the November (08) lows on the Dow, but the S&P holds on. Cost of living is about even, but only because of collapsing energy prices which few seem to worry about. And George turns 60...
02/14/2009 Week ending February 14 - Valentines Day, 2009: Love in the air for this week? Pashaw...not hardly. Market dropped a bunch and the G-7 is off solving the wrong things. But fear not! Our RV cartoon from Rebecca Price this week is uplifting...

01/19/2009 Week ending January 17, 2009: We consider the "Patriot's Paradox" (by avoiding the crash do we cause it?) and look at the continuing decline in the markets as producer prices fall, but only energy keeps the lid on inflation in the CPI if you look closely....

10/11/2008 Week ending October 11, 2008: Our long predicted 'crash' shows up as the Dow losses a lot of ground and still the bailout hasn't addressed the core issues of Main Street America - 'rescuing' bankers, not humans in general. Election year, maybe?

04/01/2008 Week ending March 29, 2008: Monday, the Fed will make a move to expand its powers beyond banking into regulation of securities and perhaps more. Is this the "revolution/rebellion" foreseen linguistically?
