    All this talk of meat and cheese is making me feel very hungry.

    However, imagine how rich all those economists who correctly predicted the economic data are now. :D

  3. ET doesn't have meat. Just cheese and whine :)

  4. Dining on the those very finest meats and cheeses as we speak, perhaps? Speaking of which, Cheese Futures anyone? Should go float this to the Merc, see what they say...

    Not just at this moment my friend, however I'm feeling quite partial to a couple of slices of cheese on toast, which in England is considered as somewhat of a delicacy for the impoverished. :)

  6. Wait a sec, seeing as how I am a resident of Ye Olde Great Britain meself, you can't slip these sorts of things past me :) . It's beans on toast for us proles, n'est ce pas?

  7. If GM goes BK, which looks more and more likely, unemployment will jump to a monthly million plus in a blink. Chrysler will go down immediately afterwards. The steel industry will suffer mass layoffs while GM restructures itself. I suspect unemployment will reach 12% by years end under that scenario.

  8. Not a bad number . Could have been much worse. The economy seems to have found a bottom.

    No longer content to be dead wrong on the markets, ST3 is now eager to branch out his throughtlessness to economic indicaters as well.
