Anyone remember what I said six months ago?

Remember this post of mine? Probably not. But it's looking better than 50% accurate. I only mention it for when you're reading stories about the big credit crunch and you see quotes about this current situation being something no one expected. I couldn't get a pass in A-level Economics, but it seemed pretty inevitable to me. The next question I'm asking myself is whether the second part of my prediction - the part about cheap money shifting away from America and towards the Eurozone and elsewhere - will come true. If it does, I think a full-blown U.S. depression will happen. Wow, let's hope all the flaws in my analysis show themselves soon, right? (Although, on the other hand, it would force America to stop spending 50% of its GDP on weapons.)


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
