I mean its waiting in the balance but it is probably about to burst. (within the month it will start i reckon)
does the government know? this is horrible.
and some precussors to this event have shown themselves, to an extent it does rely on others (who matter also noticing the signs, but I feel that they will and that although they could try to hide it, I dont think that they will want to (or be able to) thus it will realise itself (I mean realise itself in the sense of one can fondly imagine that the piggy bank has adequet funds in it, even if it is actually nearly empty, and you would be quite happy and carry on as normal, if you look inside howecver you will be alarmed by waht you find and will be unhappy and not be able to hide this.......this is a sort of alagory for what i believe will happen, the 'tells' that i am seeing will cause others to check stuff and then it will become apparent that what they belived to not be a problem will actually be a very big problem.
is this really really real?whose fault is it?what are you going to do about it??
(even though they are in the news all the time) that they will probably continue to be ignored unless someone who matters decides to link the bare piggy banks with the existing denied elephants and starts to connect them, that would accelerate things too fast.
some real world consequences
like whether i should take all my savings out and store them under my mattress or something.
all my meager savings.
he says this every three or so months... yet we're still here and capitalism hasn't 'fallen', and he has no qualifications in this area, so like, dont panic
unless you were being sarcastic, in which case, whoops, over my head
and susceptible to panic and wild theories. im impressionable.
why do you think that i post stuff like this.
Somehow sharing fear seems to make it slightly less acute.
Actually Im sorry, I had turned over a new leaf, but someone on here encouraged me to 'have a go' (in my old apocalyptic style) and like any old junkie once you relapse just a little, you relapse big time.
dood and sibley are probably right, I am probably just paranoid, I am not a genius or anything, i never even went to uni, and i havnt got a degree, so its probably best not to get too worried about what i rant about
plus were you right about the last one?
as do others.
I believe what i say absolutely, I would feel guilty not to say it if i just kept quiet.
However i might exagerate and over dramatise (as weapons against peoples hatred of prophesying gloom and as a battering ram to try to overcome what i see as moribund complacency and conviction that something will contuinue seemingly safely just cos it has for a few decades)
So i apologise for that, i probably do make it sound rather biblical and portentious (maybe theres a bit of self agrandising in there too, people who think they can predict stuff others dont, can have a tendancy to grandstand it)
If its of any help, worrying wont do any good, and as for storing dosh in notes under your bed? probably not a good idea, some people have been getting rather paranoid about the possibility of the US demonitizing the dollar recently (although I do not see this as being imminant, unless they are dumber than i thought, or unless other countries (china mostly) force the US's hand by abandoning it as a reserve currency)
(although not investments)
Although again this is dependant on the rates that financial institutions pay on savings.
I am not suggesting that high street institutions will not be able to pay out what you have in savings into your hand in the form of paper money, it will mostly be another sort of problem (although a similar round of dominos might result in some other high street brands having temporary problems, but the gov has sort have promised that savers will not lose out. havn't they?
without a warning and this might have been the spark for the civil unrest and the subsequent junta takeover as a response.
This particularly hit those who did NOT have savings in an account, but instead hid stuff in their matresses, although I do not think that the UK gov are going to do this as it would solve nothing for them, the set up is different from in burma/myanamar, where the people most hurt would have been those who did not have such close connections with gov.
So its a completely different kettle of fish, there were some rumours about the US but I dont think these aer likely (except with the provisios in my above post)
(although there are many other sorts of similar articles)
Its them recognising that maybe some big hedge funds might go down cos of equity swings and the fact that they've bundled it into recognising more parts of the elephants anatomy than usual, of course they've still sort of managed to identify it as a duckbilled platypus rather than an elephant, but it is the slight change in nature of the report (in a major newspaper) that indicates to me that there might be some looking in piggy banks that might result in unhappyness and its knock on effects on other funds and pensions and investments in general.
Hopefully people will only perhaps only recognise a rhino rather than a herd of elephants all at once, because obviously the shock of this would kill the economists and politicians
then some kind of line will have been crossed and I don't think we will come back from it. I will want ANSWERS!
am I going to have to resort to wiping my arse with leaves because Andrex will cost £350 for a pack of 12?
(thats cuckoo pint or lords and ladies)
However you have identified a luxory that may become highly desirable if a mere depression sets in.
when's this financial armageddon coming then??
I am probably almost certainly flawed about that on reflection.
Just a big landslip
the United States represents it's primary export market.
he's not the only person i've seen warning of another hiccup, as it were (though creaky is a doom-meister) - my cousin, who's a severe dabbler in the various things financial types dabble in (stocks and shares is the only bit i understand, there's a whole heap more), reckons there's going to be another crash before the end of the year, he was vehemently recommending to his brother "don't even think about buying a flat in the next six months at the very least"
I tells ya!
