    2012 doesn't have to be the end. I was in a sense agreeing with you.
    A time for(of) change indeed

    I thought we were in the "information Age", It would make more sense.

    Apologies, misinterpreted!

    Most people, in my experience most people think that the 2012 prediction means the end of world or the end is nigh sort of stuff. :bier:

    I reckon that one of the main reasons we wont see a 29 style crash/depression is simply because of China...and the fact the the top 500 or so political elite have no where else to go if it fails, their life's literally depend on the world not falling over.

    If the world falls...China falls and revolution will almost certainly follow with many a chauchesku ending for the political elite and they simply wont let that happen, simplistic i know but there it is.

    Purely IMO ... but I think people are crazy to compare crashes now to past events in percentage point terms.

    Id be more curious what kind of PE ratios the indexs were trading at pre 1929 crash, and what they were trading at at the bottom of the second drop. Also the GFC 08-09 in comparison to the 2011 correction in terms of PE ratio's at the precipice and the bottom.

    It's not even the worst recession we have had.

    what is wrong comparing crashes? people around here seems to think that because something happened 100 years ago it can't happen again... guess what? The market is still the same emotional beast it has always been.

    Ratios for the S&P 500 below, this only goes up to 2009, but the PE before the second drop was about 20.

    Just saw the figures coming out of Europe, it's not looking pretty. Seems like it's just been edging down there for weeks.

    Fasten your seat belts looks like plenty more turbulence is on it's way with some more of those big drops.

    Oh dear. Time to drag out those Split Enz lyrics - again...

    "I see red, I see red, I see red
    How can someone wicked walk around free
    I see red, I see red, I see red
    I see red, Ooh I see red"


    Shocking US data last night. Home sales tanking. CPI zooming. Philly Fed economic activity index sunk without a trace. Man the lifeboats!!! :eek:
