Helge RoiderPeter, how can you not see that making the same wrong prediction (economic collaps) every week is killing your reputation. Also its tiresome to listen to statements like "the lowest number in 6 month" as if this would indicate a downward trend rather than simply random fluctutations. Please instead go back to explaining underlying mechanisms based on your austrian view on things.3 days ago

Thomas J RyanYou're right about inventory buildup, I "hoped" that Xmas 2014 was going to be better, and I purchased about 2x the inventory I should have for my internet toy store, and I'm just now finished paying off my wholesalers because sales were so bad. The only upside is I probably wont have to buy any inventory for Xmas 2015, although that hurts on my tax returns.1 day ago
