What are you above accounting now or something?
Market trends don't mean s***, lol.
How old are you?
What's your background?
well the next econ crisis is going to be Japan defaulting on their debt, followed by the UK. Japan is going to kill itself if they are able to stop deflation because they spend a 1/3rd of their budget on interest cost, but their rates are near zero bc the real return on the bonds are 2.5% (10 yr at .5% plus a 2% deflation rate). If they do get 2% inflation, their interest rates will go to 4.5% and they will not have a prayer to afford it.
The UK is about 900% debt to GDP when you add all their debts up (Public and Private). When you have these types defaults, you always have Wars and the victory gets everything. I think this will happen in 2014 (maybe Late 2014)
My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
He is a college student and his professor told him that was not right. He has no real world experience.
Bump. Not trolling, just wondering your background for claiming everyone else is so wrong in their thoughts.
I did. You suck ass at reading if you think that answered his question.
I will answer this question. I manage about 250 Million in assets as a FA. I have been doing it for 9 years. I have a background in Economics. BTW, my clients were only down 13% in 2008 and up 46% in 2009.
They can't afford to pay debt denominated in their own currency?
Wtf? I need to put you on ignore when it comes to financial discussions.
That wasn't so hard, was it.
You're welcome lol. I'm no longer in the Military but still work in Defense
What about this? Seriously want to know if this is helpful in regards to the economic discussion.

It's a fear mongering sales pitch. In the video, they are speaking from scripts and at the end it's a commercial for an investment strategy program. Sales 101 - feed an audience a big bowl of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt).
Next up, food, the DHS and FEMA will be hoarding the food for "humanitarian" uses. I can't wait until bread is as hard to get as 9mm bullets.
Cool. Didn't want to take the time to read it, but I've seen it pop up on a few sites lately.
The conspiracy theory market is BOOMING right now. Take advantage of it before it's too late and Obama taxes all new theories posted on the internet.
I'm still wondering and you seem like a sharp guy with a strong grasp on government habits. Are these recent purchasing trends above normal for DoHS, below normal, or average.
If they're above or below, do you know by how much?
Government agencies do use all of their remaining budgets at year end (September) and often times buy goods they don't immediately (or sometimes ever) use. I don't know about ammo , but I know this from the IT field and would think the same concepts would hold true. There is also a very strict process on how the gov't procures and whom they purchase from. The seller would most likely already have a contract with the gov't to sell goods or else the government would have to had put out an open market RFP for such a large purchase. The seller also plays a part in the sale, so maybe they want to move product and make a great deal. Not necessarily saying that in this case, but saying that you should factor the influence from the seller too. In summary, is it possible that we are forecasting unrest or trying to block supply to the public?...possible, but unlikely. I wouldn't put much thought into it regardless. You can't live life thinking the gov't's out to get you or that the world is about to end. Believe about 10% of what you hear on the news, especially political entertainment shows. The government does not spend your tax dollars. The government spends their dollars and they are budgeted to spend a certain amount into the economy each year. No more, no less. They budget approximately 20% of the overall economy. Taxes are designed to control your spending power, which in turn controls inflation and maintains the value of those dollars spent into circulation.
I haven't mentioned any conspiracies nor that the government is out to get anyone. I've only asked questions. I'm fully aware government agencies spend to their budgets, but using a real life example from an agency who actually uses ammunition, the Army Ranger base in Columbus, GA takes a truck to Lowe's and tells them to fill it up. They don't care what it is, they just want it filled with a dollar amount of goods.
This stuff isn't purchased to spend a surplus. It's purchased with an intended purpose whether you would like to acknowledge it or not. That purpose is open to debate. Choosing to discuss it does not make one a conspiracy theorist.
maybe not you specifically, but it has been speculated that this was done to prepare for some sort of uprising or either to block supply to the public. to me, that's a conspiracy theory. sorry if an insulting tone came through as that was not my intent. i will ask some of my friends who work with dhs and if they have information or opinion worth repeating, I will get back to you.
Who needs legislation on gun control passed when you can just consume a huge chunk of the market of ammunition? By buying enormous amounts of ammunition, the government is practically forcing gun control on citizens by decreasing the amount of ammo available. I know that ammo is beginning to become scarce where I'm from. Between the government's consumption of ammunition and the multiple concerned citizens' hoarding of ammunition, there isn't much left for the rest of us. It may be just a "conspiracy theory," but it's what I believe.
I haven't watched any of these videos, but if its really hollow points I doubt most people at buying that.
The reality is uncertainty over regulation and COGS are a lot of the reason manufacturers don't ramp up production. There's been such a run on inventory in Q1 it would be foolish to overproduce and get stuck with supply they can't move.
Edit: my brother bought a Stag AR last year for roughly $700-800. He traded it straight up for a fishing boat 2 weeks ago that would be valued at $2500 re-sale because he couldn't get .223 rounds.
