When and How the U.S. Economy Will Recover

Though it seemed like we entered recession overnight, it'll be much longer until we emerge from it.

This report outlines when the U.S. economy will turn around, the effect of President Obama's policies and how to protect your finances in the meantime.

If there's a proverb that captures the outlook for the U.S. economy, it's the one that says: "It's always darkest before the dawn."

    We never invisioned anything like we are experiencing now. Perhaps if we were more mindful of the political arena we would have seen what was to come. Canada, Mexico and the US have an agreement in place already. We are now working with Cuba and not even paying attention to Venenzula. We are a country that enjoys and applauds investment, but forbide investing in foreign opportunities for our own citizens. It is very likely that those foreign investors from other countries will take our own founded companies back to their homeland and rename, redefine our faith in America. We need to pay attention to those who “pursue the American Dream” and look beyond the dollar signs and at their real intentions that are hidden underneath.

    Wow! There is a lot here to read! Unfortunately, it is not going to be easy and even worse….it will take decades to bring back what we had.

    Time to tighten everything and become innovators in our fields.

    Your financial report should be more clear on why Gold should be invested in. What kind of gold? Coin dealers tell us to buy coins minted before 1933, because of the confiscation problem. We need to know if this is just sales talk or factual. Also, are American Eagles the better to buy or Maple Leafs and Kukerans just the same? Should we wait before buying gold since it is possible that the economy be better it self?

    Sorry, I don't buy your glowing enthusiasm of a economic turnaround and a Obama influenced recovery. Not a single mention, on your part, of the policies (who many now say are marxist) who by their very nature have killed jobs and business. Even his Pelosi health care bill is riddled with job killing mandates which you and others are not yet privey to. For example, Page 22…MANDATES the govt will audit books of ALL EMPLOYERS that self insure! Page 145 line 15-17…an employer MUST automatically enroll employees into public option plan. NO CHOICE. Page 150 lines payroll between $251K & $400K that doesn't provide public option pays 2-6% tax on payroll. Page 126 lines 22-25 employer MUST pay for health care for part time employees AND their families! Page 50 section 152…health care will be provided to AA non-U.S. citizens, illegal or otherwise! The point is, not a single part of your artical takes into account the devastation of Obama's policies are having and are yet to have on our businesses, the market and our economy in general. In fact, in madating health care for illegals by itself, will bankrupt the nation just as it has done in California. Imagine the economic benefits in store, when, thanks to this new policy, illegal entry takes place on a wide scale because everyone knows they can get something free off the backs of American tax payers, just by jumping a fence. The folly of your article bets on the markets as influencing a turnaround. In my view, it is not the markets to watch, … is the umemployment numbers…..and they are getting much worse….all influenced and will be influenced by the policies that I mentioned above.

    Who really wrote this crap, the Obama staff. "by nature Obsma is a deeper thinker, so was Carter and look where that got us. As for Obamas tax cut to non-tax payers where has that gotten us. Nice work for unions, and cronies. Very weak
    recall of facts as they exist and as for Volker he is just window dressing, I doubt he is buying into this multi trillion dollor drunken spending spree on pet projects unlikely to stimulate anything except Nancy P. and Harry Reed will lose his Senate seat along with a rubber stamp congress in 2010

    The US economy will recover when Washington makes the decision to use it's political might to dump free trade agreements, and obtain industry and jobs. When all decide
    that the people of the US are the number one priority and
    NOT FOREIGN POLICY. The US first and foriegn policy second.
    The US industry built-up foriegn industry over the last 15 years. Just ask the companies seeking scientists, engineers,
    programmers and technicians that can speak a foreign language like Chinese and teach. Countries such as India,
    Pakistan, China, Malasia, South Korea and Japan are now
    competitors in the acquisition of jobs

    How can anyone think any Gov't leaders care about people? The money comes from the corporations and so do all the decisions made. We, the people, are being swept up by a matrix of lies, deception and possibly genocide. The entire Capitalist system is inherently corrupt as profits will always be skimmed by the bankers and legislators who are nothing but the masks of the wealthiest. These self-proclaimed demi-gods believe they are important because they are wealthy in a corrupt system. Obviously they are only criminal and ruthless. SWINE FLU SHOT? I DON'T THINK SO!

    I am a subscriber to your investment letter, and after reading this bunch of CRAP you have written, I wonder if I have made a wise decision in having anything to do with you. Did Obama's henchmen provide you with this article. So far as the banks not lending, do you really think that Obama didn't provide the conditions for the bank welfare. obama doesn't want a recovery until he takes CONTROL of the financial institutions of America. Control the money—Control the people
