    US unemployment rate reaches 7.6%

    BBC NEWS | Business | US unemployment rate reaches 7.6%

    Wow, this is very concerning for the US. Horrible numbers. US unemployment is now higher than EU-27 and passing the Eurozone next month. Considering European unemployment has been hovering about 7% for quite awhile, and US unemployment was only 4% a year ago, the numbers are dramatic.

    I actually predicted this to happen several years ago, but then people called me dumb and what not. If you do not believe me, check out my first posts on this forum and my warnings about a worse economy for the US and the UK the coming years, but a relative stable European economy.

    The truth is like this..

    You are blindly pro-US..
    The reality to you is anti-US.

    I wouldn't be so smug in your assessment of the UK economy. The US is gonna suffer pretty badly here for a bit, but we are the precursor to Europe. We're all intertwined with our economies. Europe and the US are dependent upon each other and a huge market failure in one will induce large market failures in the other. The UK banking system in fact had already started to feel affects of the US collapse.

    As for our unemployment, I'm not going to be surprised to see it breach 10%. Which is another reason why you're all gonna feel the pinch too. US consumerism was driving global economies. You relied on us to buy crap, but we're not going to be buying crap right now; not for awhile. All markets, including the EU, are going to go through a bit of a rough period. Nothing to the extend of the Great Depression, but still it's not gonna be the best times ever.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The US sneezes, the rest of the world gets pneumonia.
    Everyone knows this.
    Even those pro-EU anti-US bigots that won't admit it.

    Re: US unemployment rate reaches 7.6%

    Goobieman has it right. You're simply trolling. That what you post may be factual is irrelevant to whether you are trolling or not.

    Your post above simply pats yourself on the back for predicting something and, again, slamming the US relative to Europe.

    I have to wonder, though, why do you project that the US unemployment rate will pass EU27 or Eurozone next month?

    Eurostat shows the EU27 at 7.4% as of 01/2009 up from 6.8% in 01/2009. The EU15 was pegged at 8.0% as of 01/2009 up from 7.2% in 01/2009. And nothing they are reporting suggests that those rates will be falling and economic conditions appear to be worsening.

    Hence, given that there is no reason to conclude that the US rate will exceed the EU27 or EU15, well, it seems you're just, again, slamming the US as opposed to taking a legitimate look at unemployment rates, the unemployment situation within the EU, or anything else.

    The latest unemployment data isn't breaking news? This doesn't seem like trolling to me at all.
