It took me two and a half evenings to complete your un-put-downable book...it is a unique contribution to the appreciation of a life in Singapore. Thank you for having written it. C. V. Devan Nair, former President of Singapore.

Bought the book from Select this weekend and can't put it down! It's a great read! And so nostalgic for me—the good old days!

It is a remarkable story and so full of intrigue that it reads at times like fiction.Jonathan Burnham, Editor in Chief & President, Talk Miramax Books.

The Crash of 2010

Obama and his advisors

California, May 25, 2010 1:40am

Black Tuesday is upon us, and the market will crash today.

The Great Recession – Phase 2 is thundering down upon us.

All along, the only indicator that has made any sense is the US Department of Labor’s advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims.

This is the US Department of Labor’s estimate of unemployment claims over a 4-week period.

Here is what the recent US Labor Department numbers look like:

4/3/2010       460,000
4/10/2010      484,000
4/17/2010      456,000
4/24/2010      448,000
5/1/2010       448,000
5/8/2010       444,000
5/15/2010      471,000

Yes, unemployment claims are down from the 540,925 initial claims in the comparable week in 2009.

However, since 75% of the US economy is consumer-driven, with close to 500,000 layoffs during each 4-week period.

How can there be any evidence of a turnaround? There can’t.

Obama with his Bernankes and Geithners have been spreading the word of an economic turnaround.

Just look at the US Department of Labor’s unemployment claims figures and watch Black Tuesday’s stock market, and you will know that Obama and his advisors have been “misspeaking.”

  • Strange to be commenting on my own post, but it looks like the big boys came in again to support the US stock market. Since the volume is low, that is not too difficult. Let’s see just how long the big boys can keep their finger in the dike and keep the floodgates from opening.
