“That’s nothing to cheer about, though it’s not likely to have much impact on the markets in the short run. It’s more of a long-term problem.”

“But it’s certainly another straw in the wind showing that the U.S. is on a non-sustainable fiscal course that can only end in default, hyperinflation or protracted depression-level growth.”

“Meanwhile, another major credit ratings agency, Moody’s, has just issued its own downgrades that may foretell a much more immediate threat.”

“And they don’t involve the government.”

Jim’s topics of discussion: Downgraded; it won’t be subprime mortgages next time; the looming CRE (commercial real estate) crisis; I want my money back; fighting the last war; and there’s time to prepare.

Jim signs off with, “I advise you to plan accordingly.”
