Will a political change in Washington in the fall help the failing economy and “declining” stock market?

Posted on November 22nd, 2011 by admin1 in political marketing company

Considering the bad economy and bear market, would you buy stocks now?

Even, Warren Buffet’s company, “ Berkshire Hathaway Inc” is affected by the “Bear Market”

***I have bought some, but I find it a bit scary****

i think its going to get a little worse yet. Oil prices are high now, wait until its winter when in the east people need to keep that energy flowing to make sure their pipes don’t freeze (and to make sure they dont freeze for that matter).

I live in cali, thats why i refer to it as the east.

    I hope so. My 401K can’t keep taking this volatile market.References :

    It could. If real conservatives win a majority in Congress, the economy could skyrocket.References :

    Always buy for the long term. Certain industries will deliver a steady return regardless of the economy. Not big dividends, but steady. As for the election, maybe, maybe not.References :

    Right now it the last best buying opportunity of the decade. The market will recover, regardless of who is in office. Just how quickly and for how long will be affected.

    The dirty little fact is that since the war in Iraq turned towards victory, after the dems were invested in defeat, their focus turned to the economy.

    The worse the economy "seems" to voters, the better chance they feel they have.

    If you don’t believe it, you really think it’s the planet they’re trying to save by not allowing drilling?

    Short term politics such as a change in washington have no immediate effect on the economy. The economy is bigger than politics and much more slower moving. The challenges that we are facing currently are due to irresponsible lending on the part of lenders, consumers who too easily use credit and spend beyond their means, and a populace that feels that we are entitled to cushy retirements and cheap healthcare. The economy tends to run in cycles. The real estate market and the stock market were in much worse shape in the early 80’s. It is a cycle towards which we are heading towards the bottom. It really doesn’t matter who wins in washington, it will bottom out in it’s own time. Now if congress can stop the wasteful spending and grants that they seem to love to hand out, perhaps our great country has a chance. I for one would like to see people there who want to do what is best for the country, not just to get them reelected.References :

    It used to be that people purchased stocks only after getting to know the company. If they liked the direction the company was going, if the product or service offered by the country was lucrative, if the company was of benefit to the people and the economy, then they’d purchase stock. That practice showed people’s faith in the company, in the economy, and in the country.

    Today, most investors don’t even know the company name. All they do is watch the ticker tape. If a stock starts to move up, they buy. When it starts to move down, they sell. That practice shows only greed.

    The economy isn’t suffering because of an administration. It’s suffering because too many people have forgotten that they have to pay their debts — and that includes Congress. Congress just figures that the people will pay for it in taxes. The President doesn’t raise or lower taxes… all he can do is veto. Congress can override that.

    Personal opinion: the market should be at about 11,600… no more. If people kept their spending commensurate with their income, it might gradually increase… maybe 5-10% a year… at least for a while. I believe faster growth is inflated. And it’s going to eventually disappear and hurt the small investor.

    No, responsible government spending will help the economy. Not seeing it from either side of the political fence right now.References :

    This happens every time we have a two term president that leaves office. It’s nothing new. With a new president it will come back once again. It happened when Clinton left office. It took Bush 6 years to fix the mess Bill left us in but fix it he did and when McCain takes over, it will get better. That you can count on.

    McCain is the new president.References :
