How are the U.S. Markets Like an Onion? When You Peel Away the Layers, It Will Make You Cry

September 26, 2006 –

When the mid-term election cooking of the books ceases, and someone finally has the sense to start peeling away the layers of the economy like an onion, I guarantee you, what they see will make them cry.

As I’ve stated a hundred times here, short-term lies and artificial propping up of the economy can only fight an uphill battle for so long before the walls come tumbling down.
