There were several pundits predicting the sub prime debacle long before it hit. John Mauldin to name one.

Boiler Room is a true-ish story. I work for FINRA (nee NASD) and know one of the examiners who busted them.

"Today is the first day that I am actually fearful of what is going to unfold over the next few years." Politically, there is an infinite difference between a country where most people realize they will never get rich vs a country where most of the people can still dream of wealth. In the former, the temptation to kick the rich's butts is ever present. One of the effects of the housing bubble was that most of the people looked at their house 'values' and thought "wow. we are becoming rich." Ergo, they sympathized with the rich. Maybe the powers that be want lots of immigration so that J6P can look at the immigrants and think "I'm well off--- compared to THEM"...

What an a-hole. Did you notice how he's about to cry he's so upset... but who's he upset for? The Wall Street grifters who made millions of money are :::sniff::: losing their jobs! Oh NO! Where can I send my donation? Only after he cries for them does he mention that people are losing their homes. People? I thought they didn't qualify as people unless they had Richistani passports? Somebody at the top of the big investment firms must have serious dirt on Mr. Cramer. That's the only thing that would explain the near-tears and his complete suspension of logic. "Bernanke needs to lower rates." Great. Hyperinflation will save us all. Effing tool.

Greed. How do you like it? Wall St boys are getting hosed. Couldn't happen to a better group. Maybe their Christmas bonus might not be as big this year. Perhaps they will have to settle for imported beer verses expensive wine. Let's hope there are lay offs, cut backs now on Wall St. as the money men will suffer along with the rest of the foolish shareholders who bought into this dream of riches.

JJ, in 20 years I'll be 68. But hopefully this 6 day per week vegan / fitness enthusiast will have the fitness of a healthy 50 year old. That said, I would never put more than 1/6 of my net worth in real estate. In 20 years I would not care whether it's a bubble or not. I could put $200,000 next week into the S & P 500 and be confident it would appreciate an average 10% per year by then. That's a lot of moolah.

Beer? Cigs? Diageo and Altria (DEO, MO). They pay dividends. Also, rather than traveling, people will go to movies more. Dump airline stocks and buy DIS perhaps?

I plan to frequent this place a couple of times a month. Would do more, but I'm a vegan 6 days per week: Had a double bypass today. The scenery while eating was incredible.

If you've been buying gold and other PMs over the years, as well as government securities, you will be fine in inflation and deflation. Some of you posters literally think there will be blood in the streets. I doubt that. In the next ten years most of you will still earn a living doing what you are doing. Spend little and save much in complementary investments.
