Flipping a switch might set off a chain of 30 mechanical operations that result in an egg's being dropped into a pot of boiling water across the room. Goldberg is not known to have moonlighted as a manager of absolute-return funds, but providers of these products seem to have drawn inspiration from him.

INVESTORS shifted from full-blown fear as the stock market plummeted in 2008 to a mood of rampant risk-taking after the market took off in March 2009. They have now become nervous again, or so the conventional wisdom goes. There is certainly some truth in it. Amid growing concerns of another global economic slowdown, investors have rushed into ultrasafe Treasury bonds in recent months, pushing yields down to an astonishingly low 2.6 percent from 3.8 percent in late April.

The economy won't start to recover until 2010 (versus the current consensus of now). It will recover because the government will be forced into a second stimulus. * The US consumer rules the world...and the US consumer is cutting back fast * Consumer spending will drop from 70% of GDP to 60% as consumers pay down debt and go on a saving spree. * Most recessions have a positive quarter or two of GDP, so if we get one, it won't mean anything. * The S&P will plunge 35% to 600 by the end of the year.  by newuser53468939 on Jul 16 2009 (10 months ago) Henry Blodget|Jan. 6, 2009, 3:58 ...
