    Benjamin Roth: The Great Depression: A Diary
    It's all here, times change people don't -the endless govt programs that fail to stimulate the private sector -the ups and downs of the economy, the veterans pension stimulates just as the housing credit did, until of course the money runs out -Roth is a attorney in Youngstown Ohio who kept a diary regarding the economy from 1930 until WW II breaks out, he is objective, candid, and forthright which is more than we get from Washington DC now or then highly recommended

Funny - this thing with TVIX wasn't even mentioned on CNBC yesterday. I am just catching up with the story - I thought it was round #2 of the problem. Apparently not - just Round #1 that has continued without being solved for a MONTH! So, yeah - you are right, where was the SEC? Same place that they were in 2007-08...

Now that I think about it, the SEC is about as helpful in seeing what will happen in markets, and the danger

as the CIA is in seeing what will happen in the mid East and the danger to the US

the SEC did not see the ETF danger and the CIA never saw the Arab Spring coming in Libya and cannot figure out how to help in Syria

Let's put both out of business and let them get real jobs...

agreed - they can pick up trash on the highways along with the rest of the cons that are actually in prison...can you say chain-gang??
