The rANT is becoming seriously confused -- these days it seems like the only certainty is uncertainty. On a day when U.S. consumer confidence dives lower than ever before, the stock market celebrates with its second-largest point gain in history.

bMighty vs. Bernanke - Good News Edition?

10/13/2008
It seems that the $700 billion US bailout was just too puny to do the job. The global bank bailout proposed this weekend at the G7 conference raised the ante to more than 1 trillion euros, and sent Wall Street soaring. And it's not a moment too soon for business owners, as almost a fifth of US small businesses say the economic conditions threaten their very survival.

Press Releases Need A Home -- Ideally With Good SEO

10/13/2008

bMighty vs. Bernanke - The TED Spread

The rANT is learning about arcane new finanical measurements on a daily basis -- and we are not pleased about it. Today's unhappy word is the TED Spread, the difference between what banks pay to borrow from each other for 3 months and what the Treasury pays. TED is going places it has never been before, and they are not good places, which helps explain why the market dived another 679 points today.

bMighty vs. Bernanke - Rate Cut Edition

10/8/2008
OK, so let's get this straight.

bMighty vs. Bernanke -- Bailout Edition

10/3/2008
What's $100 billion among friends? For the House of Representatives, it's the difference between rejecting a bailout bill and passing one. Of course, it's not that they took $100 billion OUT of the bill. Instead, they turned a $700 billion bailout into an $800 billion "rescue package." Sheesh.
