Week in Review: The Depression of 2009 (Podcast)

"The Daily Outlook it's so bleak ... Saving every dollar of every week" - Dropkick Murphys "Tomorrows Industry" from the album 'The Meanest of Times'

It is now, as I figure it, day 505 since it has become completely obvious that the CDO derivatives need standardized (as was done with commodities), and put on a transparent exchange.

I’ve been right thusfar I hope (and pray) I am wrong about this one. But I see a new Depression as unavoidable.

I used to hear comments that the derivatives no-show hole was at least 45 trillion large. I found that difficult to believe. Why? Because trust was still within the system. That trust is fast disappearing. Since the proper steps have not been taken? I have no choice but to believe that the hole really is that big, and that’s why they don’t wish to create a CDO derivative exchange (and hopefully regulate, or get rid of the CDS's completely)
