new recession

new recession on its way

A few years ago they were telling us to save for our pensions and now the markets we invested in are falling apart. We’re all going to be poor and will continue to be poor when we actually reach an age when the government allows us to retire (God help anyone in their 30s now they’ll be working until they’re 90).
Well now it looks like we’re heading into uncharted territory with the possible breakdown of the European monetary system and a double dip recession looming. Savers are being screwed as are the poor and middle income families have lost badly needed income.

private pensions dropped by up to 14% in 3 weeks which mean’s, what was the point taking out private pension’s when you can loose your income, one couple lost £2,500 per year a big drop for any poor pensioner.

square testicles

An elderly woman walked into the Royal Bank of Canada one morning with
a purse full of money. She wanted to open a savings account and insisted on
talking to the president of the Bank because, she said, she had a lot of money.

After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right) an employee took the elderly woman to the president’s office.

The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to deposit She placed her purse on his desk and replied, ‘$165,000′. The president was curious and asked her how she had been able to save so much money . The elderly woman replied that she made bets.

America’s debt

$14.3 trillion (£8.7 trillion) in debt, way was this allowed to happen. 4 Presidents lifted the ceiling 14 times instead of trying to cut the debt and get the country back on its feet.

I wonder if we will see the congress and senate men and woman taking a wage cut and pay freeze, i think not.

Mr.Obama is cutting $1 trillion (£610bn) over 10 years, that is twice as much as Britains total debt which the goverment are trying to clear.

Britains debt was caused by the last Labour goverment so they are the ones to fault, just as Mr. Obama is not to fault it was the last Presidents.

The US was and could still be in danger of losing its AAA credit rating, which could have/might mean tax rises in the form of higher interest rates on mortgages and credit cards.

The US Congress is due to vote on a deal to raise the countrys debt limit and avoid the worlds largest economy having to perform a humiliating default.

The leaders of both parties in both chambers have reached an agreement that will reduce the deficit and avoid default,” Mr Obama said.
