The New American Dream Is To Avoid Drowning In Debt

Commemoration Of A Canard

Welcome to the wacky world of 2013, where bad financial news is met with the cheers of investors who believe stimulus will last forever, where foreign investors dump the U.S. dollar in bilateral trade while mainstream dupes argue that the greenback is invincible, and where everyone seems to be buying precious metals yet the official market value continues to plunge.
