The world is growing much slower in 2008 than in 1929, while the debt far higher - econ 101 - if growth is half, that makes the same debt DOUBLE....a scary picture when looked at from this perspective... and a good indication that stocks are still over-valued by a factor of 3-4!!!

I figure the DOW will revert to pre-Greenspan levels...but I'm nuts!

Not nuts at all, but one must be carefull. Timing is not easy, EJ understands this.
