Re: US in Recession

Buffett is a genius and as usual, he is 100% correct. US has been in recession for about a year now.

Weak dollar is a huge boost for exports though and thus the numbers are still up. But in terms of employment and wage growth, most states have experienced big downturns over the last year.
Insurers are about to get slammed hard…their golden age has passed.

I was in Miami recently and there is a ton of foreign tourists (mostly European) coming in and buying everything in sight, especially more upscale items (clothes + jewelry). This has been happening all over for a while now. They come for a week just to shop and go back.

In South Florida, Germans are notorious for wearing tight speedos at the beach. They look like a bunch of fruitloops…maybe Hans can shed some light on that…

Re: US in Recession

Disappointing that there has been very little response to this topic, I say this because every day news of a major recession looms, in the US/GB/Oz, no body seems to be worried in Poland, in light of the huge spending spree by Poles, I wonder what effect this has in Poland in future.

Re: US in Recession

"They look like a bunch of fruitloops"

the Germans or the contents of the speedos?

Apparently the captain of a ship incurred legal action under race relations law for announcing that the passengers should stop acting so Germanic in hogging the sun loungers.
