Shouldn't this thread belong in Bargain Alerts?

Some solid and quality and huge companies shares should be on sale then this year if this is true.

Well start crying collapse now, so you can be sure to be on the "told you so" bandwagon.

And they call economics a science?
Inflation is bad, so the opposite of bad must be good right, not if you're an economist

They say the definition of an economist is someone who can tell you tomorrow exactly why it was the thing they predicted yesterday didn't come to pass.
They make the shít up as they go along.
You can actually get nobel prizes in this shít. It's like winning the nobel prize for palm reading.

I can see there being corrections in a number of markets. I stand to make significant money in the event of a crash in European shares. The Australian economy tanking due to a commodities bust would also serve me well.

Well, I suppose for most people the effect would be their pension pot right? That's fairly real for the general public.

Depends on where they're stored. The last time a lot of people had their pensions tied up in portfolios which included property and medium-risk investments. Anyone who's still stupid enough to be doing that deserves what's coming tbh.

Or you could just not have a pension, like me.

Well they are pretty sh!t at remembering the past.
They do a good job of denying the present.
So that just leaves....
