Cara's Commentary & Community Chat, Fri., Feb. 6, 2009

[7:27am ET] The Bernard Madoff scandal, not the current state of macro-economics, has brought America and the world to a crossroads. The question is simple: do we take the ethical high road or do we stay the present course? I ask you to read this document from beginning to end and ask yourself if we really have any option:

Glad to hear the good news. Laughter may be the best medicine, but anger ain”t at all a bad indicator.

Chickenpookie,

Do you understand just how the holdings listed for TBT are designed to work? I cannot say they do a very good job, but I baffled by the model.

Nothing can prevent the inevitable Day of Financial Reckoning for all of the participants in the Keynesian Ponzi experiment.

If you truly wish to grasp what must occur so that we avoid strife on a global scale, visit the Von Mises Institute’s most excellent site.

A little early I guess. A squeeze doesn’t matter now with mornings gap. Taking profits now in premarket and moving on for now.

Auctions will be held most of the week, so TBT holders are likely to be out riding their cart with music blaring while the Treasury is peddling their phony artwork.

Wow! Thank you all for the well wishes. It must be working because mom is doing much better and the nurses are sounding more positive and frankly, a bit surprised at how well she is doing.

When I heard her arguing with the nurses I knew she was feeling better.
Oh, and bitching about her new cardio diet….which makes her heart rate go up and skip a beat or two….arguing that is. So we’re not quite there yet…..but your well wishes are sure appreciated and helpful.

Caraistas are the best.

aucourant, the Asian indexes are up so as to catch up to the Friday’s rally — this is old news. The “new” news are reflected in the fact that US index futures are down 1% right now, which is the best prediction right now for how the US market will open on Monday (1% down). Apparently, the “banksters” did not like something this weekend. Maybe the fact that the Geithner’s plan is delayed until Tuesday…

A very interesting take on how the corruption in high places will prevent the American people from buying into plans to bail us out of the mess were in. Same with the UK. Basically Obama’s efforts will fail because people don’t trust the government and mistrust the efforts of those who got us into this mess in the first place.

Craig,

Have faith that what the universe has in store for each of us will be comforting, will be natural, will be ….. right, when all is said and done. Not to mention inevitable, in the fullness of time.

Not to say that I believe in destiny, but we are all children of this world, even if we may exist independently of someone’s master plan.

Having said that, God bless your mom and I am pulling hard for you both.

I did a little more background analysis of ESLR after their recent earnings report, and what concerned me the most was that they are planning to reduce their production costs to $2/watt by the end of 2009, while FSLR *already* has production costs of $1.08 (from the FSLR web site) and sold 735 MW of panels in 2008 (5 times the annual rate ESLR is planning to achieve by the end of 2009). This is some tough competition to fight against… The average sales price for ESLR was $3.39/watt for 4Q2008, which looks to be at the low end of… Read more »
