Random Thoughts: Is this the End?

Written in 2008 in the heart of the great debt meltdown, the markets were near their lowest, and I was unemployed.

To paraphrase Jim Morrison, is this the end, my only friend? Don’t know, but it has been a raucous week in the financial world that is for sure. Certainly there has been no limit to the “fodder” for the Personal Financial bloggers guns this weeks, so let’s have at it.

What Did I write?

  • Bail Out Continues Back in 2008 there was a huge bail out of the markets and banks due to a lot of shenanigans in the world of credit.
  • Interesting Times Remember when oil was over $100 a barrel, Nortel was still viable but the markets were crashing, yes that was 2008! Can it happen again?
  • Twenty Years in One Line How does it feel to get a severance letter from a company you devoted over 20 years of your life to? It sucks, but sometimes good things come out of bad.
  • Creating Wealth? If you create wealth, but lose yourself is that winning at life? I don’t think so, creating wealth is fine, but never lose yourself.
  • Random Thoughts: Financial Apocalypse Edition Can the U.S. financial industry survive the looming apocalypse? Get up-to-date news and analysis on the 2008 crisis, inflation, and election. Discover if the DOOM and GLOOM is warranted.

  1. The credit crunch is frightening but I don’t think this is the end. Two years back spreads on loans were wafer thin over treasuries. Today, the pendulum has gone in the other direction. Everyone is too risk averse. This too shall pass.
