      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

As I recall, economics is a social science; a discipline with testable theories and mathematical models the predictability of which is limited by the vagaries of human behavior and natural events.

 

That definition is vague enough to slap on just about anything. Political science, anyone?

 

But hey, I guess meteorology isn't a science, right?

 

If you say so.

In case you haven't noticed neo-liberalism was applied almost everywhere, which explains why so many economies have tanked.

Last time I checked, it was the Neo-conservative's policies of deregulation that allowed these bad loans to go unchecked. What ever happened to "let the market take care of itself"?

Think of your senator and your representative's votes as mere tools of the free market.

If unemployment soars, what'll happen to tax revenues? And not just at the Federal level but we're seeing it already at the local level with decline of property values (and thus property taxes)along with losses of sales tax revenue.

 

Are we just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic?

That is about the amount you got a couple of months ago to bolster the economy is'nt it?

i think 600 bucs is quite different from 2300, isn't it?

I think 600 bucks is worth about the same as 2300 was a couple of weeks ago

The "fucked up economic shit" in question has been America's greatest export over the last 25 years.

yeah, stupid rhetoric is hardly a tool when you watch your checking account going down like crazy. Dow 7000 by march- i would not be surprised a bit. median price of home 113k? i think early 90's are back.

Obama should continue doing what works: remaining the cool cat, continue talking about fixing our problems and let McCain fall on his own attack campaign strategy.

 

It's incredible that, given all the crisis today, the McCain campaign thinks that sending Palin out to dredge up the Ayers connection is a path to victory.

 

Oh well, there's that judgement thing again.

In the environment, pretty much everything goes through cycles of boom and bust. Chaotic fluctuations are characteristic of population biology, for instance.

 

Why do people get surprised and cast blame when the same thing happens in the economy?
