Retail sales are shit too - It's looking just like right before the Bush 2 economic crash.

The NSA used to fly off the shelf around here. Reminds me of the same story with the 243's.

It's still quite a bit of jingle...

I guess I'd need to handle one in person to see what all the fuss is about.

Semi Tangent:
Us market is really overvalued, but it's mostly due to the idiotic stock valuation of a few big companies, plus the fact that bonds yield close to nothing or even negative (Europe).
I.e. Amazon just overtook Exxon in market cap: they just posted their biggest quarterly profit ever, which coincidentally was about half Exxon's quarterly profit.
Their worst in 17 years.

So all signs seem to point in the wrong direction, still I do not see the typical irrational euphoria we always have before a huge downturn, so who knows.

Economy could just drift sideways for a long while with no crash.

As long as the financial markets account for something like 30% of corporate profits, we'll continue to have frequent crashes. That's just not sustainable.

I'm not a macro finance guy, but things don't seem great over here. Salaries are down. Real estate is up. My job is basically recession proof, but it feels like the economy is running off goverment debt and foreign cash.

You guys collect the wrong shit. Just sold one that I probably will never be able to replace since most vintage keep going up in price so I hold on to most of my stuff was a fluke I let one go. Just look at hodinkee vintage watch sells his stuff flying off the shelf.
