This GEI Conference call examined the case for an early March low in stocks. Michael Hampton ("DrBubb") hosted, and gave his case for expecting a near term low in global stock indices. Comparisons were drawn with lows in 1974-75, and the point of the "big breakout" in late 1996, when Fed chairman, Greenspan, threw caution to the winds, and lightened up regulations for banks, touching off a speculative boom which lasted a decade. The world will take a long time cleaning up the mess from massive expansion of credit, a dotcom bubble, a housing bubble, and the resulting crash.
GEI members from around the global contributed their comments and questions
