Almost the same place it was at last Thursday(resistance hovering around 8k on the Dow) ...technically it qualifies as a bull market since it is up over 20% from the low/bottom...it signifies that a second great depression is not upon us...I was out of the market this week...which looks to be a marginal mistake, but I still think tommorow will be a down day...unemployment is a real lagging indicator and everyone is super ahead especially the idiots getting Bullish once we already hit the crest of the bull market(short term). I did catch most of the rebound from the bottom, but if I miss this week no problem...if the market looses more than 202 points on friday I am right about my down week prediction...at this level I am unsure...while at 6400 it was money in the bank no matter how many folks were feeling marxist...the real factor is is that all this money will have to inflate the stock market eventually. It all depends on how comfortable you are at looking foward...but from the rhetoric and actions of Geithner, Bernake, and more recently Obama you know drastic stimulus is in place...and nobody can deny that these policies are inflationary with regards to the stock market...Keynesianism works just like a monopoly game where folks keep grabbing $500 bills out of the bank when no one is looking...add to this a fat bounty for free parking, and double the amount when you cross go(collect 400)and it makes everyone feel richer and keeps the game dragging on, albeit with distortions.

This isn't really serious economic advice...but if you have an old monopoly set and a new monopoly set then you can play a game I invented called Keynesian monopoly(somewhat unfair)...you start out with the old monopoly rules and money...but first one to go broke gets bailled out(5000) second one to go broke get bailled out (5000) and then free parking gets 3000 and you get 400 for passing Go. Third one to go broke gets 5000 and the right to convert any property he owns to the modern monopoly version(inflation rears its head finally) then whoever is the first to pass go three times gets to convert his properties to the modern version, at which time the player who crossed go the least number of times in the game gets to file an anti-trust suit against the one of the other players, who will ironically win/tie the game eventually by the mathmatical impossiblity of loosing(seeing as how he goes to jail and is not forced out except at his discretion, but is still able to collect on his properties)...a few other rules...but they get made up as folks go along...a possibility: players get a community chest card that allows them to put in place a full employment policy...whenever a regular player passes over them without hitting, they can take an icon out of the case and place it on the property they own, and collect rent directly from the bank...

All in all a lousy game that drags on...but in truth the modern version of Monopoly already illuminates this truth...Sometimes I think macroeconomics is incapable of being false, and incapable of being true...it is incapable of being false because the addition of money on one side of the equation ballances and inflates the other...a trick as simple as the fact that credits and debits can both be good in certain circumstances...we like credit because it allows us to enjoy goods, and we like debit because it means others owe us...and it is funny to think that both a credit and a debit card are things you buy products with...Still the mercantilists aren't right and I joke too much.

Capitalism has always been 'ludic'. When will you conservatives learn that postmodernist discourses go to the winners in globalist capital, and fundamentalist discourses go to the losers.

"Capitalism has always been 'ludic'. When will you conservatives learn that postmodernist discourses go to the winners in globalist capital, and fundamentalist discourses go to the losers."- i support these great words!

Houses and cars are quite expensive and not every person can buy it. Nevertheless, loans are created to help people in such cases.
