Slide 25: Other Indicators
Slide 26: Other Indicators
Slide 27: Why are we so gloomy about the economy?  Well, we are in a recession. . .  Financial Crisis  Political/Economic Leaders  Spin and TMI  Economics that hit our everyday lives:  High food/gasoline prices.  401ks have taken a hit.  Problems in the housing market.
Slide 28: Remember this. . .  Our brains have a negative bias.  We pay more attention to negative information than positive information.  Laws of supply and demand cause the media to play into that bias.
Slide 29: Behavioral Economics  Classic herd behaviors are can come into play, leading to many, many people taking measures like dumping stock, and lining up outside banks when they don't need to. (Or investing in a bubble housing market.)  These behaviors can actually exacerbate the problems for everyone, causing tornado-like spirals that suck in even wider swaths of people.  We think the “herd” knows more than we do. . .when they really don’t.
Slide 30: Listen to Mom. . . If everyone else jumped off a cliff, would you jump off it too?
Slide 31: “We have always known that heedless self-interest was bad morals; we now know that it is bad economics.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Slide 32: Reality Check. . .  We are in a recession.  Job losses aren’t over.  Housing prices must adjust to a true market equilibrium—this will take time. Housing bubbles collapse slowly.    Foreclosures Overbuilding Credit problems  The market will make us atone for the excesses of the past few years.  The government cannot save us from economic pain.
Slide 33: “Men have been swindled by other men on many occasions. The autumn of 1929 was, perhaps, the first occasion when men succeeded on a large scale in swindling themselves.” John Kenneth Galbraith
Slide 34: HOWEVER. . .  There is nothing in the data to suggest we’re headed for a great depression.  Our economy is different; government safety-nets have evolved —we understand the economy somewhat better.  Gasoline prices have dropped; food prices should follow— increase in purchasing power.  Out-migration of undocumented workers may provide a buffer.  Demographics mean we don’t need as many new jobs nationally; more workers per family.  Banks freeing up credit to each other and the public.  Housing is now more affordable.  The economy will recover.  Stock prices will come back.
Slide 35: The Self-Fulfilling Prophecy  If we believe we’re headed for a “great depression” and act accordingly, we can exacerbate the current recession. . .  Currently, the economy is being driven by panic and fear rather than reality.  Remember that to work properly, markets must present both the possibility of profit and LOSS.
