agip I went to that link you gave, read through the page, then went on to read page 196 of this thread.
On those 2 pages, Maserati did a few things. He explained the expatriation numbers, which is something I did not know and which I appreciated. He also detailed how the GDP calculation has changed--something else I didn't know and that I appreciated, which puts growth figures into perspective. He also specifically stated that he "could see the Dow topping 18k by the end of 2014 and reaching 19k in not too long", the first part of which has been absolutely correct. He also presented evidence to show how much of the newly-calculated "GDP growth" was due to increased government spending, and gave us his opinion on why government spending is not as good as private-sector spending.
Sorry, but from where I sit he is clearly the best poster on this thread, if not the best poster on any online financial thread I have ever read, and I have read many. Not only that, he seems to be the most genuine poster on this thread, actually congratulating Flagpole on the gains he made using his own strategy.
I will continue following this thread, hoping that he or she returns.
