The financial crisis… pff… same old, same old.

December 8, 2008

Amazingly the financial crisis has already just become something we assume… I’m actually bored with it, and it seems everbody else are too.

It had such flash, such star-quality to begin with. I saluted the coming of the financial crisis, like a latter-day-saint would salute the coming of Christ, an orthodox jew the coming of the messiah, and a muslim the coming of the fabled 12th imam (or whatever)…

Which is sort of the same as the financial crisis – an apocalypse, a changing of the existing world order, a time where the last shall be the first etc.


I’m really disappointed with this financial crisis – I hope something happens and it gains momentum – if we must have a crisis, let it at least not be boring and slow… nobody wants a slow-motion apocalypse. It should be like the 2004 TSUNAMI! – just when people are pleased that they survived the initial wave… BOOOM! comes the real blast.


Anyway, Obama won… and Christmas is at hand..  and I think I need some vacation…

The financial crisis turns me on.

Just a quick post on a subject thats quite hot these days – the financial crisis.

Man I love it! – it’s wonderful that it’s finally here. After so many years of “pyramid-scheme” economics on the housing prices, and in the general economy the financial crisis that IS to be expected sooner or later has finally arrived – goodbye to excessive spending, farewell to people thinking they are better persons just because they are succesful consumers who has bought some new expensive thing they did not really need.

Hello to a time where the most sensible thing you can do is NOT take out a huge loan to buy a house expecting it to triple its value in a few years, but actually holding down a steady job with a reasonable wage – welcome to a time where the defining character of people will not be their consuming power.

So – let’s all hope for a real hardcore recession, a time to bring back true values, to find value in family and friends instead of a new car.
