For the past 6 months I have stated my position is that governmet intervention will make the economy AND the financial markets worse. I had stated this would happen in the Long Run, but I have 2 national experts that not only confirm or agree with my position, but they feel this will impact the markets quickly and predict a huge fall in the stock markets this October...Yes, one month from now. Depsite the fact some have accused me of cheering for a recession, I have always stated that I just want the government to stay out of trying to control the economy. Here's what these 2 experts have to say; Professor Bennet Sedacca - A well respected investment expert often quoted by the WSJ, Fortune Magazine, The Street and several other respected trade publishing companies "The Pain Trade The Federal Government just declared war on short sellers. Will it help the real economy? No sir. Will it help the value of my house? Nope. Will it blow up hedge funds? Yep. Is it a selling opportunity? You betcha. Will the rally last ? No. Will earnings increase? Actually I think they will fall. My conclusion? The pain trade, after this burst, is a crash in October. Yes, a crash. I am not talking my book as my firm is delta neutral. What makes me ill is that folks in the media are the mouth pieces of irresponsible Government officials. I am sick to my stomach watching Socialism take over. And with that, I head to the Ryder Cup." Mike "Mish" Shedlock investment advisor representative for SitkaPacific Capital Management "Government manipulation can never prevent financial Armageddon. In fact, government intervention and manipulation in the free markets eventually guarantees financial Armageddon." Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis Only time will tell...But I think the current exhuberance will lead to a bigger fall. Just as Professor Sedacca has predicted. Remember, investor confidence doesn't lead to economic recovery because it won't fix what is broken.
