Joke Du Jour
"Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are trusting the economy of our country and our banking system to the same nit-wits who couldn't make money running a (house of ill repute) and selling whiskey!" -- Maxine, that hilarious, irreverent old lady in the funnies
Just How Bad Could the Depression Get?
It's important that you grasp the concept that the money supply of the United States is disappearing. Unless vigorously countered by the Federal government, the money supply could collapse by 80%. Prices of everything could just keep falling and falling because no one has any money. The multiplier effect working in reverse is like a monetary black hole. Billions of dollars are disappearing daily from our money supply.
"You're crazy, George. Money doesn't just disappear ... and even if it did, the government would just 'print' more."
You really need to read my book, The Reverse Multiplier Effect - When Crushing Deflation Destroys America. It's an exciting action story that teaches the reader a critical economic concept. The multiplier effect works in reverse. If a bank takes in a $1,000 loan payment and fails to recycle that money into a new loan, the money supply contracts by a whopping $20,000.

In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University. On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air.
The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.
The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Over twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over so it was close to where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, and then put it down. The elephant did that several times and then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs, and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
It probably wasn't the same elephant.
