渴望和平

治國如烹小鮮

這兩天, 全世界都受到美國經濟衰退的連累, 所有的股票市場, 都大幅幅滑落.

美國總統布希, 要表現他不是快下臺的總統. 跟我們的阿扁一樣, 決定要拼經濟, 給大家看他還是老闆!

布希總統宣佈: 為了提昇美國經濟, 他要退稅.

連黑人的總統候選人, 都馬上說這是聖上英明, 他當上總統, 也要蕭規曹隨云云!

真正忙得不可開交的, 是美國的國會議員. 他們等於臺灣的立法委員, 忙著想辦法, 要立法實現總統先生, 英明睿智的德政.

麥芽糖眼看這個氣球, 越吹越大, 美國上下, 都在討論這個美國的入聯公投.

拿出打狗棒, 當成金箍棒, 迎風一愰, 變成一根繡花針, 戳破這個愚民的神話.

美國的財力, 全世界首屈一指. 百分之五的人口, 消耗地球一半的資源. 歐洲共同市場 聯合成為歐盟, 還是比美國小, 美國並沒有躺著當霸主, 到處巧取豪奪.

布希治國, 連年征戰, 掏空國庫. 美軍乒乒乓乓打伊拉克人民, 轟炸阿富汗山區, 都是大把銀子, 從美國的建設與消費挪用.

八年來, 美國從鉅額存款, 成為負債累累. 美元跌落到比加拿大幣還低. 所以, 新總統候選人辯論, 以經濟衰退的破解之道為首要議題.

政府少收點, 甚至退回一些稅, 就市場活落, 經濟起飛啦?

巧婦布希, 真是可以無米炊, 比阿扁的拼經濟, 和老共的計劃經濟, 還要厲害! 連毛澤東的學雷鋒, 都輸給他了!

巧婦布希的無米炊, 真是無米吹!

有這麼好的招數, 為何不一上臺就讓全國人民享受?

呵呵!

這正是他一上臺就做滴: 退稅! 促進經濟的結果, 是一年之內, 就把克林頓八年存下來的積蓄, 花費怠盡! 現在 他要成為午夜的灰姑娘, 一舉解救全民甚至全世界?

老丐這一針, 戳不著巧婦布希的犀牛皮氣球.

不過, 咱們等著瞧: 七年都把美國往水深火熱裡帶的巧婦布希, 最後這盤牛肉, 是上好牛排, 還是超級犀牛皮?

Congress endorses post-Bush tax hikes

AP - 53 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - Both houses of Congress endorsed the idea of tax increases for millions of Americans Thursday as Democrats pressed ahead with budget plans that would allow some or all of President Bush's reductions to die after he leaves office.

美國經濟衰退 三次降息奏效?

放屁 !

搞了半天, 時報原來是替老謝當打手.

無恥!

2008.02.25

美國最近四次經濟衰退 有三次降息奏效
【中時電子報巫彩蓮/台北報導】

次級房貸衝擊到美國的經濟表現,美國經濟後市、美股走向攸關著全球股市的表現,根據NBER(National Bureau of Economic Research,美國經濟研究局)資料顯示,自一九八○年以來,美國經歷過四次經濟衰退,其間,美股平均跌幅為19%到38%之間,當美國政府正視到問題的嚴重性,宣布採取降息措施之後,除了二○○一年網路泡沬化那一次之外,其餘三次美股都是上漲,此次美股自去年十月開始修正跌幅為12.5%,趨近過去四次美股平均跌幅,且聯準會開始降息時,顯示目前美股接近底部的距離。

自一九八○年以來,美國經濟分別經歷過一九八○年、一九八一年、一九九○年,以及二○○一年四次的經濟衰退期,股市往往領先經濟基本面,政府當局宣佈經濟步入衰退期之際,股市表現中通常有一段跌幅,平均的跌幅為19%到38%左右,這四次的經濟衰退中,以二○○一年網路泡沫修正幅度最為驚人,美股自高檔修正了49%。

富達證券分析,此次美股修正主要是次級房貸所引起,與一九九○年經濟衰退狀況類似,當時美股的跌幅為20%,聯準會亦採取降息手段來刺激經濟,當時聯邦利率由一九九○年8.25%降至3%,而美股亦上漲27%,根據一九九○年的歷史經驗來看,美股自去年十月以來,跌幅達12%,而美國聯邦利率亦去年七月5.25%,調降到今年元月以來3%,這反映出,美股跌勢已反映大半經濟基本面現況。

亞洲國家出口為導向,全球化趨勢使各區經濟彼此連動性提高,美國經濟表現走弱;短期間,亞洲市場難置身事外,亞洲經歷過一九九七到一九九八年金融風暴之後,政府、企業消費者累積可觀的財富盈餘,而這些盈餘大多用於投資當地,且債務多屬內債而非外債,亞洲國家內需消費力提升,亦讓區域間內貿易大幅成長,且亞洲各國政府資金充裕,基礎建設持續蓬勃發展。

  • 美參院將再提案 40億贈社區
  • 振興經濟》參院將再提案 40億贈社區

    刺激經濟法案才通過施行,參院民主黨員14日就誓言再接再勵,採取步驟振興低迷的房市,以及防止房屋遭到查封。

    他們擬定的計畫將提供40億元成立社區發展贈款,協助購買和修復被查封的產業、修改破產法以讓法官可以調整抵押貸款,並加強公開次級抵押貸款的條件,以免貸款人意外面對償付額大增。

    新計畫也重新列入從參院當初的刺激法案刪除的條款,以促進抵押貸款所得債券,並增加彈性以協助擁有次級房貸的屋主重辦貸款,同時准許營建商和其他賠錢的企業要回已經繳付的稅捐。

    參院多數黨領袖雷德說,等參院結束一周休假恢復議事,他就會把這項提議提交院會議決。

    他說,這項提案可能使一百萬棟房子免於遭查封,並藉著增加資助房貸諮詢服務,協助財務困難的家庭保住住所,協助屋主重辦貸款以擺脫次級房貸,並讓屋主可以藉著宣告破產調整抵押貸款。

    民主黨原來希望把新提案的一些條款列入剛剛通過施行的刺激經濟法案。

    可是眾院民主黨員和白宮堅持刺激法案內容只限於減稅,以及提高聯邦機構收購的抵押貸款額度。

  • 甲醛高五倍 卡翠納災民須搬離車屋
  • 甲醛高五倍 卡翠納災民須搬離車屋

    美國衛生官員14日呼籲墨西哥灣地區的卡翠納颶風災民,盡快從政府提供的拖車屋(trailer)搬走,因為測試發現這些房屋空氣中有害的甲醛(formaldehyde)含量太高,有害健康。聯邦急難管理局(FEMA)表示,該局將努力幫助住在3萬5000多間拖車屋中的災民遷移。

    美國疾病防治中心(CDC)測試路易斯安納州和密西西比州的519間拖車房屋之後發現,其空氣中的甲醛水平為正常房屋的五倍,有些甚至比正常水準高出40倍,這很可能導致居民發生呼吸系統疾患。

    CDC主任茱莉‧葛柏汀(Julie Gerberding)和FEMA局長波里森(David Paulison)在記者會上表示,他們希望能在夏季到來之前使災民從拖車屋裡搬走,因為夏季氣溫很高,拖車屋缺乏通風裝置,會使甲醛積聚程度更加嚴重。

    葛柏汀說,雖然有些拖車屋的甲醛含量不高,但其他房屋的甲醛含量太高,會使住在裡面的兒童、老人和其他人發生呼吸疾患,或加重已有病患的病情。約5%拖車屋的甲醛含量太高,足以使正常人的呼吸系統發病。

    CDC表示,正常房屋室內空氣的甲醛水平為10億分之10至20,而卡翠納災民拖車屋的甲醛水平高達10億分之77。

    波里森說,拖車屋的災民將遷移至公寓或旅館。如有必要,還可住進已經測試過甲醛水準比較堅固的活動房屋(mobile home)。

    波里森還說,去年11月以來,1萬5000多家已經從拖車屋或活動房屋搬出,每周搬出八百至一千家。

    波里森表示,因為拖車屋太小,而且壽命短,FE-MA今後不會使用拖車屋安置災民,而會使用可長期使用的活動房屋。

    甲醛是建築材料業大量使用的一種化學物,還普遍用於製造防腐劑。國際癌症研究署把甲醛定為致癌物質,而美國環保署則把甲醛定為可能致癌物質。

    花花世界走馬燈集(24)﹕房價管制還是自由經濟﹖瀏覽13|回應0|推薦2
    2008/01/26 23:41:55

    My fellow agents,

    In response, I am enclosing herewith is a post for you guys' reference:

    As I said in the main article A Funny World (23): Mail Your Keys In and No Foreclosure Record Out?:

    Homes being foreclosed are growing steadily and strongly while the normal transaction is rapidly shrinking, if not down to zero.  The former foreclosure SALES offsets the reduction or disappearance of later's numbers and even makes sales numbers look better and rosier in the end.  No wonder Zillow.com has sales figures bigger than other websites and its Zestimate of housing price are too high in some cases.  

    My question is:    As I know, Zillow.com reports a "foreclosure" as a "sale."   Now comes Trulia.   How do we know NAR, Shiller index collect their data for sales number sensibly, even I know everyone uses different methods?

    (p.s. I will say misleading as claimed in the following blog is too strong, but it would be safe for me to say: "to have the public confused."  And believe me a decent professional appraiser won't be trapped by the tricks.  He or she will take it out of a comp. research.)

    Misleading Listing   [p.s. from Parick.net]

    I found definitive proof of misleading data from http://www.trulia.com/. 
    I hate to sound like a paranoid conspiracy theorist but it does strike 
    me as deceitful to pass off a bank foreclosure as a recent sale.  
    For example, the entry on Trulia.com for a Los Banos property lists it as recently sold. 
    When I look up this same property on Realtytrac, the property was not actually sold, 
    it was was repossessed by the lender. I know for certain that this listing was reduced
    to $120,000 before it found a buyer because it is a house I was interested in purchasing. 
    It has not shown up on Zillow yet-I suppose because it would blow all the comps out of 
    the water.  --E.R.  
     

     

    (p.s.   I believe, Zillow is very slow in updating info.   I will double check a listing price on Zillow withNAR website since I found some listings already reduced twice and took $50K price cut when Zillow still keeps the origional listing price at its website.  It may not be Zillow's fault since some agents or owners don't update information promptly. )


     
    Address
    23238 Orange Ave #5
    Lake Forest, CA 92630      

    New bid! New bid of $146,000 has been placed by nassar on
              Details     

    • Condominium
    • 2 bedroom(s)
    • 2 full bath(s)
    • Approx. 985 sq. ft
    23238 Orange Ave #5, Lake Forest, CA 92630
    2BR, 2BA, 985SF

    $147,000 Taking Post Auction Offers

    The above information is from Realtybid.com, a pioneer auction site.  Let's see what Zillow.com has to say about this property as follows: 

    23238 Orange Ave APT 5 Lake Forest CA 92630

    2 beds, 2.0 baths, 893 sq ft

    ZESTIMATE®: $329,000 What's this?


    Zestimate
    A Zestimatehome valuation is Zillow's estimated market value. It is not an appraisal. Use it as a starting point to determine a home's value.
    Learn more

    The Value Rangeis the high and low estimated market value for which Zillow values a home. The more information, the smaller the range, and the more accurate the Zestimate. See data coverage and accuracy table
    • Value Range: $282,940 - $345,450
    • 30-day change: -$15,500
    • Zestimate updated: 01/17/2008

    Last sale and tax info

    Sold 06/22/2007:
    $297,459

    Recently Sold: $297,459   (p.s. This is the foreclosure minimum bid.)

     

    Now, you can see Zillow.com treats a foreclosure as a sale.  Compare the original auction price of $146k and the 21-day final bid of $147K with $329K of Zestimate.   What's going on for so-called "market value"?  

    ( p.s  After two bids, now it is under after auction 5-day negotiation period.   Seems a very chilly California auction over there in Realtybid.com.  If you want it, you still have two days to invite your agent to get 3% commission.  The job will be neatly done in one month.  Trust me Realtybid.com has an excellent marketing service.  No hassle at all.   Forget about a short-sale that consumes a century time of you if the condo fits your needs.) 

    Who's in control?  Who's the boss, Americans, Politicians or those Wall Street fat cats?  Are we still in so-called "free trade" zone? Or those big guys has tried to cook something out of our people's dead body while they are writing down or writing down billions dollars paper value of their ABS collaterals?  Are they still trying to use accounting principles later to their advantage to boost profits at the expense of the publics?  Two pennies for your thought? 

    If you guys are inputing your comments enough to show me your interest to know what's going on, I will probably release what I have in my mind as to the difference between 1990 RTC crisis and today's GWB's fiscal solution to the housing bubble.

    這一點嘛﹖老美的民主﹐是生活方式﹐看看聯網那一群紅人﹐民主是一張嘴。就知道中國土地還是黑洞黑牢﹐老馬滑舌理律幫﹑歪市義和團﹐要好好下放勞改﹐當然不是去北大荒﹐而是到黃金國的下層喔﹗

    A Funny World (22): Pragmatist or Moralist?

    01-23-2007

     The Economics of Second Liens 

    Rich Shinnick 12:57 PM Sun Jan 20th

    Felix,

    It may very well be prudent to draw against your HELOC if you anticipate needing the money and are worried, but implying that people should do it because they will only have to pay back 10% is a little mis-leading don't you think? In fact, if you do it with the intent to only pay back 10% it may be fraud. Rethink that statement.

     

    ******  *****  ******

    Rich,

    Felix is just pointing out a very real real real reality which is getting popular in our society or economy. To me, he has done nothing to imply his position.

    15 months ago, I loaned one of my credit cards to my sister-in-law. By using mine, her balance of $17,000 was fully transferred into mine at 3.99% interest. She would pay about $450, instead of almost $1,800 a month to her own. She continued to directly pay my credit card banker and she had appreciated my help until 3 months ago.

    Now she is kind of regret to ask help from me when I read her words in between. She wished she could know the "smart" broker ( or the right approach) earlier who negotiated with her credit card creditors for her. She got a good deal to pay 10 cents on a dollar, paid off all the balance remaining on her credit cards and she paid mine off.

    I have no idea what's going on for her to easily wipe out all credit debt and have a fresh new start.  As I know, she has never mentioned "BK" was filed under her name.  So it was not handled by a bankruptcy court.  I hope someone here can tell us what a "genius" program she has taken.   It would be so great invention than God.  We could create a haven now since we would not have to pay our debts back, at least the full amount.  Gee! why we need FED's Mr. B who can't be so mighty?

    All I know is, since then, my wife has told me 3 times:
    "What kind of world is this? I kept coaching my young sister to save. She should stop over-spending. She and her 3 daughters went to have a professional hair-stylist every week and has all kinds of impulsive purchases. I save my money to have me and my daughters washing our hairs at home by ourselves. I don't buy such those fancy, junkie computer stuffs for my daughter. See, I didn't buy my daughter an ipod when their 3 daughters have updated to the newest many times, let alone their own cellphones.   Now my sister is joking at me and says: I am owing nothing now and you still owe a mortgage.  Why you have to save?  Why don't you go out to my hair-stylist as we did.  When you have problem, I will introduce you my programmer.  I can‘t stand her bragging of wisdom!"

    So many great systems those specialists have created nowadays!

    I have to admit that I am an old dog.  Time is changing and I don't know most of fancy things or see the logics behind them.  Just as on the evening of MLK's day, I felt so dizzy when listening to the Democrat Lady who went to Atlanta saying: "We commemorated Martin 40 years even longer than he lived.  We have never made his dream come true.  Now, [voting for my presidency] we are here to finally finish and get the job done.

    Gee, So funny the world is!  For the past 40 years including her husband's 8 years, we have never been able to make a great dream of Dr. King come true.   She can do it overnight?  Where can we find the cure to the disease out of her medicine closet?  Does she give us practical "New Horizon" plans as the "New Deal" in her beautiful speeches?  Seems to me her talks are full of abstract terms without substance to implement, if not bullsh*t!

    There is a saying;"Once cheated, you are honest, but you're a fool if you are allowed to be cheated twice."  We are such a greatest people on the earth as American.  How come we couldn't see we are such a fool to be cheated EVERY 4 years by those fancy terms such as "social equality", "future", "dream"?   That's exactly what I felt the night of MLK's day after hearing some speeches made by those VIPs.  

    Yes, I know we are so smart to kick the Bush Senior out since we remember what he said "read my lips."  We can't be cheated twice by him.  We had never been cheated twice by the same person.  But, look at the reality.  Does history tell us that we have been cheated every 4 years in the past 40 years.   It is just done so easily by different politicians.
