US demographics are not static, while a long term average assumes a static model.

Enough with the payrolls .What is this with the iphone ,or any phone? I read analysts think blah ,big screen ,blah ,must buy blah. Why ? I still have a brick that's used so little it's growing cobwebs. My last topup in 2010 is nearly so old it's due a pension. Be honest ,am I out of touch ,or will people really keep buying into obsolescence at this rate year on year? I just know the answer is going to hurt and I will have to start going outside more.

Reading the Sunday report today, right on cue the media hounds are splashing us with their bullish verbiage after the payroll data , the same old story over and over again. I wonder if they believe in cycles and patterns. Please, when it comes to the print we learnt off the master.

As long as you "master" is not Ambrose Telegraph that 's fine. The latter wrote an article and for his sake I hope it was one he delegated to a junior ,because it was atrocious.
