For the most part, I enjoyed all of those threads, as I was always learning something new, and usually peculiar. From the "Economic Recovery" thread June 2009 thru July 2012: Looking back again, I find it amusing that any of us thought we could predict how it would all shake out, when the Economists didn't seem to have a clue. It was pure luck, IMHO, as to who was correct back then. hmmm.... I appear to be having a senior moment of nostalgia. Perhaps I should get back to the present. Oh. Gleem answered that. I guess I have nothing to add, except, whatever happened to the OP? He hasn't been around in over a month.
