    and the Census jobs running out in a couple months, and the state budgets blowing up inn two months, I wonder how they expect the economy to move ahead after June.

      ...calling for bigtime crash and burn here sometime between Q3 '10 and Q1 '11, as you've pretty fairly summarized it in a couple of sentences in your comment.

      In the meantime, count on plenty of "happy news" diaries over the next 60-90 days, along with all of the accompanying abuse that goes along with same.

      That's the way it is when you do posts about the writing on the wall while many who read them get twisted about anything that projects beyond the next weekend!

        Otherwise, when everyone does finally have to deal with the writing on the wall they will want to start at square one in debating solutions.  You've been there and done that a few times and there is a history for people to read and become educated when they are ready.  Keep on trucking.

      I cannot believe where these guys' heads are.

      With the inventory and off-book nonviable assets still behind the balance books of most banks, not to mention commercial real estate defaults looming, and pending foreclosures ahead, why would anyone think there will be a retail housing shortage anytime soon and that there will be capable borrowers, for new building or old?
