Is it '29 again?

Mortgages Ltd. CEO Scott Coles, 48, was found dead on Monday in his $11.3 million home. The cause of death has yet to be determined, but the unfortunate event may fit the scenario of CEO suicide during an economic downturn.

True....but generally guys that have 11.3M houses have *other* money to bail them out and continue to live lavishly.

I'd guess there's more to the story, likely being indicted for something real soon now.

More deflation news as the world real estate implodes, credit and money supply contract.

Quote:
HOME lending growth has suffered its biggest decline since the 1991 recession while inflation continues to soar, confronting the Reserve Bank with the dilemma of a slowing economy and simultaneously rising prices as it meets today to set interest rates.

The slump in home loan growth led a general slowdown in credit, with increases in total borrowing at a three-year low and personal loans growing at their slowest pace in six years.
Quote:
July 1 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. house prices fell in June by the most since the end of the last recession as banks starved the property market of loans, Nationwide Building Society said.

The price of an average home declined 6.3 percent from a year earlier to 172,415 pounds ($343,278), the biggest drop since November 1992, Britain's fourth-biggest mortgage lender said today in a statement. Prices dropped 0.9 percent from May.
More and more like '29.

Maybe '29 is what's needed to separate the men from the boys. I say bring it on! There are too many people that need a wake-up call in this nation. As for my family and I, we'll be A-OK.

Really? If you are serious then you are a fool. And FYI...if we have events like we did during the Great Depression (which is what I assume you are alluding to) then don't expect many people to stand in line for potatos and bread. They will be coming to your door and taking what they want. You think you will be "A-OK" because you have a little cash stashed away or whatever security blanket you are speaking of? Think again.....but hopefully you were just joking.

Honestly though Denny I am not sure you comprehend the macro/micro economic effect that the great depression had on society. Get angry if you like but I promise you if joked about the depression and acted as if you understood it in front of my grandmother she'd beat you with a stick, LOL.

It is not just about personal finance, I work in public education so I know I will have a job, just as you in government employment; however, that scratches the surface. My father was born in 1932 the youngest of 11 kids to a railroad worker in Western Virginia. Even though they had a steady paycheck, businesses shut down and basic items got more exspensive and they had to drive further to buy things, etc. Life for all involved sucked even the wealthy simply because the entire country was plunged into a very very dark unhappy time.

Then why bother now? You're obviously too ignorant or closed-minded to understand my stances if you don't think I've prepared for something like this. You don't have to agree with my logic, but you should understand that, given this hypothetical, I'd be one of few sitting on easy street.

Who said anything about finance. I'm talking about being self-sufficient during a time where there is little-to-no controlling government and a society with limited resources. I'm talking about a time where people like subsistence farmers will keep on living like they always do and the 30K millionaire will end up in a bad situation just for survival.

Is this one of your "stances" you are talking about? If so, it is not I who is the "close-minded" fool. Once again, I ask you to enlighten me (us) so we can all understand why you wish to "bring it on". Also, can you define why you feel that people need a "wake up call" such as this. I am trying to understand your side...if you would explain it. Maybe your above statement came out of your ass and you did not stop to think of the implications involved with another market crash and a following Depression. And how would that separate the men from the boys?

Curiously waiting....

What a dumbfuck...

I never said I wish it to happen. I said maybe it needs to happen in order to separate the men from the boys. How is that being closed-minded? If I would have said something like it could never happen, that would be closed-minded. Know the difference.

There are people who need a "wake up call" because they base all their decisions on a life filled with debt and lack of responsibility. Unfortunately, it's becoming a plague in the States. People need to be held accountable for their actions and decisions better than they are now. All the way from the top executive positions down.

I'd have to agree with Denny on this one.

When this all goes down, it will once again be survival of the fittest. And it has nothing to do with money. When/if the shit hits the fan, and something along the lines of a modern day "GREAT DEPRESSION" happens, the ones who will survive are the ones who have an intelluctual understanding, and an industrial know how to take care of themselves. Not having to depend on someone else to survive.


And the way the World is today, there arent a whole lot of people that have the ability to do this. Our Country has gone soft.

"I say bring it on". That amounts to the same as wishing for something to happen.

Understand the similarities.

And if you think that something like a depression is what is needed to separate the men from the boys, then you are a drab little man who can not see outside of his own little box. So let me see...you don't have ANY debt? No mortgage, no car payment, no credit cards...etc etc etc. In a Depression, the last thing anyone is going to care about is debt and how their maxed out credit cards may or may not have caused it. Go talk to your elected officials about debt. THAT is the real problem. Not a maxed out 10k Visa owned by Joe Shmoe. Ask your President....I know you voted for him.

What I am calling close-minded is the fact that you are judging people you don't even know. I AGREE with the fact that there are those who take no responsibilty for their actions, but to make the statement "bring it on" about a depression..???!!! WTF!

And what are you? A farmer? Do you have food stockpiled that can get you through something like that? Who knows if that will even be enough. This is not the 1930s and the dynamics of our social structure have changed drastically in 80 years. No one knows if they are going to be "A-OK" as you put it. You can think you will be ok because of a few guns (like Al P) or because some members on here think you are a bad ass that no criminal can victimize, but in truth you sit at that little computer waiting for someone to disagree with Big Bad Denny with over 35k posts and been on this site for 8 yrs blah blah blah. Far be it from me or anyone to have a difference of opinion or ask you to clarify a stupid ass statement (like the original one you posted here).

And you can call be a "dumbfuck" all you want. I could care less what you think about me because of a forum posting. So flame on, call me names, and show us more of that immature shit we have come to love and expect from.....

You can agree with him all you want. I don't, and have not any where in this discussion disgreed with anything you have said. It will be survival of the fittest, but most probably not in the way you are envisioning. If we actually fall into something similar to the 30's there will be people who depend on exploiting others to survive. Look at the crime rate. Do you think people without the skills you mentioned will sit around and let their families starve while "A-OK" Denny sits back in his conceived lap of luxury. No they won't. So in essence they will "depend" on others to survive. Hence "survival of the fittest.

Im really not sure we could ever really hit another "great depression" stage. Ya denny i know that seems closed minded and I might be on this subject, although I havent really put alot of thought into it so im not to well informed on the cause/effect of a modern great depression. I really just dont see the same effects of a depression as in the 30s. There is to many resources/capital/barriers/protection plans out there to really cause the survialists to be the only ones to "survive". Again I havent put much thought on the subject so my views might be a bit out of line. I will agree, it will definatly ween out the ones who cant survive without a butler/maid though. Although, wtf am I supposed to do on the weekends when I cant race, there wont be any movies to go see LMAO

Plus, the illegal immigrant problems will either get worse or get substancially better, depending on how companys take the hit

Exactly! Who cares about current financial status if the dollar becomes next to nothing? It's all about a state of mind. The only advantage some will have is that they're mentally prepared, be it in subsistance farming/ranching, strong inginuity, survivalist, etc. I'm not saying we'd be cavemen, but definately fending more for ourselves with limited resources. I know I'd be able to rely on hunting, ranching, farming, etc. more than the average person does now. I have slightly above basic first-aid knowledge, but know resources who are stronger in that category. I'm well-equipped to handle an immediate threat in the absense of emergency responders. Heck, I can even make a ROWPU operation with shit from a hardware store, if I had to. LOL

Don't take this as bragging, but more of a time to reflect on yourselves to get some sort of "Plan B" happening. Don't let the thoughts consume you, though. Keep enjoying life, but raise your awareness and focus on what would be needed IF anything were to happen. I know some of you think I have a fitted tinfoil hat, but would you think the same about someone if they told you about everything up to know when it was still 1999? Remember how well-off our economy was? Come on, people. I'm not asking you to change your lifestyles. I'm just wanting you to prepare for anything. Nothing more.

Do you think people without the skills you mentioned will sit around and let their families starve while "A-OK" Denny sits back in his conceived lap of luxury. No they won't. So in essence they will "depend" on others to survive. Hence "survival of the fittest.
I've also taken THAT into consideration as well. It's another worry, but at least I have made preparations. Don't get so upset when people point out your ignorance, learn from it. Jeez!

Understand the similarities.

And if you think that something like a depression is what is needed to separate the men from the boys, then you are a drab little man who can not see outside of his own little box. So let me see...you don't have ANY debt? No mortgage, no car payment, no credit cards...etc etc etc. In a Depression, the last thing anyone is going to care about is debt and how their maxed out credit cards may or may not have caused it. Go talk to your elected officials about debt. THAT is the real problem. Not a maxed out 10k Visa owned by Joe Shmoe. Ask your President....I know you voted for him.

What I am calling close-minded is the fact that you are judging people you don't even know. I AGREE with the fact that there are those who take no responsibilty for their actions, but to make the statement "bring it on" about a depression..???!!! WTF!

And what are you? A farmer? Do you have food stockpiled that can get you through something like that? Who knows if that will even be enough. This is not the 1930s and the dynamics of our social structure have changed drastically in 80 years. No one knows if they are going to be "A-OK" as you put it. You can think you will be ok because of a few guns (like Al P) or because some members on here think you are a bad ass that no criminal can victimize, but in truth you sit at that little computer waiting for someone to disagree with Big Bad Denny with over 35k posts and been on this site for 8 yrs blah blah blah. Far be it from me or anyone to have a difference of opinion or ask you to clarify a stupid ass statement (like the original one you posted here).

And you can call be a "dumbfuck" all you want. I could care less what you think about me because of a forum posting. So flame on, call me names, and show us more of that immature shit we have come to love and expect from.....

"The Fabulous and Amazingly Insightful Denny"
Son, I can be out of debt before you grow your next (first) pube. Don't worry about me. I don't use that as a separating point between people if/when everything crashes. It's just a reflection on how they lived a care/worry-free life.

And LOL @ your Big-Bad Denny comments. I couldn't care less about the status I have on here or my post count. If you read through them all. It's filled with contributions to this little online community that people have appreciated over the years. Big deal. Now, it just sounds like you're jealous, which makes more sense as to your tone.

You can care less about me calling you a dumbfuck? LMAO! You said it, son!

I really just dont see the same effects of a depression as in the 30s. There is to many resources/capital/barriers/protection plans out there to really cause the survialists to be the only ones to "survive". Again I havent put much thought on the subject so my views might be a bit out of line. I will agree, it will definatly ween out the ones who cant survive without a butler/maid though. Although, wtf am I supposed to do on the weekends when I cant race, there wont be any movies to go see LMAO

Plus, the illegal immigrant problems will either get worse or get substancially better, depending on how companys take the hit
As soon as our dollar hits next-to-nothing, you'll find out just how fast Americans can deplete these abundant resources. I'm telling y'all... we're living among some savages. They're just disguised in debt right now. Hell, we have well-employed, stable family men who die from electrocution, trying to steal cable from live systems, just to get some recycling money to fill their gas tanks.

I don't personally know more than a couple of people on this board, and until recently haven't really read a lot of posts in this forum, or many others for that matter. Though I agree with Denny. He seems like an individual I would like to sit down and have a conversation with. I share similar views and rationale with him.

Anyone disagreeing I feel is failing to look at the big picture. The way our society is. People killing for fun, for thrill.....FOR 2 FUCKING DOLLARS. Note the two guys outside of the christian recording studio, family men, just talking, shot to death by a couple of young punk kids. What do you think the world would come to if something similar to the great depression happens. It will be survival of the fittest. Survival by those with the rationale, the will power, the mindset to survive. Conditions 90% of today's population can't even imagine. All these punk kids and "thugs" will be met with opposition they've never seen before. They don't have the skills the mind set to survive in a world like that, they don't know how to fend for themselves. All of the government programs supporting the poor. Those wont be near what they are. Survival of the Fittest. The strong survive and the people bleeding the system, bleeding our country will either be forced to be self sufficient, or forced out of existence

By the way...

People who don't agree or care about what I say usually just laugh at me.

People who fear the thoughts of some of the shit that spews out of my mouth, tend to get a little uncomfotable and irritated.

There are more people who don't agree with me on just about everything, yet we get along just fine.

Just look at how fast society breaks down in NYC every time the power goes out for a couple of days up there. It is scary to think about just how close society is perched on the edge, and how little it would really take to tip it over that edge into anarchy.

As Mikeb hinted at, just look at how fast some of the scumbags in our country try to capitalize when they think they can get away with it. A better example is hurricane Katrina when the city became dangerous in a matter of hours.

All Denny is saying is that he would meet that challenge head on and that being prepared for such a thing is a good idea. It happens to be his opinion so get the fuck over it.
