AS GDP GOES NEGATIVE ANALYSTS DEBATE THE OBVIOUS TO DEATH:
“I’m not going to say growth is particularly strong (if you don't believe negative growth to be strong growth), but this is not a
recessionary signal by any means, (if you don't define a recession as a contracting economy)” said Paul Edelstein, director of

The fact is gold, the Dow, Gold, Rates are all MANIPULATED BY THE CENTRAL BANKS AND THE GLOBAL BANKING CARTEL, so that we won't notice the economy has stalled out.
one can see this, because it's so painfully clear. Nobody can believe
this because it's so patently obvious. And no one can admit this
because then all their analysis is so much worthless blather.
