Jump you fuckers!

Demonstrators protest the proposed 700 billion USD Wall Street bail-out in front of the New Yoprk Stock Exchange in the Financial District in New York on September 25, 2008. In response to the global financial crisis, protesters, from a variety of activist groups, denounced the capitalist system, Wall Street and the administration of US President George W, Bush.  AFP PHOTO/Nicholas ROBERTS (Photo credit should read NICHOLAS ROBERTS/AFP/Getty Images)

    Bailouts aren’t capitalism and don’t reflect a capitalist system.

    Protesters, of course, manage to make everything that much stupider. I think the Brits were right: Keep them all in Hyde’s park where they can look just as crazy as the end-times schizos.

    Its easy to lay blame, but you’re all responsible for supporting and blindly following along with the decisions your ridiculous government was making. Maybe you should all jump.

    @MrDoove
    The people to blame are
    1) The people who speculated in real estate and took out loans that they really couldn’t afford.
    2) The banks that made those loans (and should have known better, but were too greedy)
    3) The institutions that traded on securities based on those bad loans.
    4) The government for not regulating the whole mess in the first place.
    If you’re not in one of those categories, you should be pissed about the bail-out.

    Can someone give me a brief explanation on Speculation and how it factors into the crisis at hand? I’m sure i learned about it at some point but sleeping pills and pot probably erased it. Plus i couldn’t pay attention in economics class.

    Caio
    Member

    The basic deal with speculation and this crisis is this:

    1) Speculators look to make prophets by, basically, using very clever buying techniques to scrape some profits off the top.

    2) They end up gouging prices.

    3) The balance between supply and demand is sent into outerspace somewhere.

    4) Prices no longer make sense and no one knows whether to worry about inflation or deflation because a handfull of lemming-like investors have made themselves another layer of unnecessary middlemen.

    Speculation: “Wheee! Housing prices always go up! Buy the most expensive house that you can. Even you can’t afford it, you can sell it before the bank forecloses and still make money because housing prices always go up! Oh shit, housing prices just went down.”

    I didn’t explain that very well so I’m going to clarify 1) Spectators basically buy stuff, or parts of stuff. Right. Well they are tricky motherfuckers because they’re always looking for a quick buck. In the olden days (not anymore) they used to burn enough food to feed entire countries just to keep prices up. 2) Sometimes spectators go a little buy crazy and jack up prices way beyond what they can sell for. Rice isn’t growing well this year? People are buying lots of houses this year? Buy up all the rice and houses and sell them at double… Read more »

    You sell a house to someone playing the real estate market. They sell it to someone else playing the market. They sell it to someone else who does renos. They sell it to someone else who is playing the market, etc etc etc. No one who has bought the house or payed into it for renos actually needs the house, so whichever playa is holding the hot potato when the economy burst just spend big money on a bunch of people that are non-essential to the housing market, because each one of those playas jacked up the prices before passing… Read more »

    The long and the short of it is: America Stupid.
    1. the government, for having zero foresight and doing nothing to avoid economic collapse. (An administration that has far more interest in the ongoings of other countries then within their own walls.)
    2. the morons who elected and supported the current government, ie. Morons.
    I know its simple thinking, but does that make it false?

    Dooves you’re an idiot 1) Do you think Canada’s never had a bubble? Or other countries? The biggest bubble in the history of the world was in Japan. what’s happening now is nothing compared to Japan in the late 80s. But they god over it, changed how they do things, and it will never happen again there, I reckon. 2) The government didn’t do this. They let it happen because they were too busy arguing about Lewinsky and Lapel pins and other crap. It’s only their fault in that the nanny state didn’t save the day when it should have.… Read more »

    I’m not sure how that makes me an idiot…
    your second point was basically backing mine, that the government is uninterested in it’s own citizens.

    The Canadian government isn’t wasting billions in resources overseas while its economy collapses, but then again, I wasn’t talking about Canada. I was talking about the States. Maybe you’re just in a fighting mood?

    MrDooves did smarty pants. Socio/political doings effect the economy too(less so). America will pull through. Rough times are coming, but at least the tourism sector should soar and hopefully things will pick up around the election.

    Drooves, the “morons” as you put it didn’t elect or support the current government, but then I’m sure you already knew that before you pulled your foot out of your ass and stuck it in your mouth.

    You might have point, except the problem didn’t start with Bush. It started in 1995, when Fannie Mae started sponsoring subprime mortgages. Bush didn’t help, but it isn’t totally his fault, either.

    Ok, I fucked that up by trying to read and type.

    Try again:
    1) The only way the government caused this is by systemic stagnation, which is everyone’s fault ever.

    2) Canada has the same type of systemic stagnation. And the same type of investor behaviour.

    3) Turning this into some patriotic flag-waving bullshit is what stupid people do when the exact same thing can happen here in Canada.

    Living in France in the 70s, I saw just what the difference (then) was in the standard of living between the U.S. and Europe in general. There was certainly a lot of pissing and moaning (especially in the UK) about their respective gov’ts. I don’t remember anyone storming any parliament. These things take time once they’ve started. Apparently it’s our turn. It’s not just this administration, this has been building since FDR and accelerating since Nixon.

    It looks like some people do have a sufficient amount of knowledge about the black cloud that is known as the derivatives bubble. And just for a minute… take a look around at the other countries’ economies and markets. Most have felt the impact of the recent market crash, but they’re not entirely dependent on the U.S. to uphold themselves.

    It isn’t correct to think of the federal government as simply writing a check for $700 billion. It is just committing itself to spend that much, if necessary. this bailout could cost American taxpayers a lot of money, but the Government stands to profit from this LOAN… With an APR of 5% (that’s 35 billion off of 700 billion) for the first 5 years which than moves to 9% after that period. At that point if they can’t find a commercial loan to refinance their loan the Government is banking 63 billion dollars a year. Those banks will likely try… Read more »
