The Fix We're In (Annals of Capitalism dept.)

Here and here. Money quote:

This isn’t just going to be about employment, though that is going to suck for the forseeable future, and will, in effect, never recover. It is also going to be about real income. Forget the headline CPI, the costs you pay are going to go up faster than your wages (which are probably going to deflate), and your assets are going to deflate. Riptide inflation, which catches you on both the up and downsides.

Real standards of living for median Americans are going to drop. It’s just that simple.

In 4 to 8 years, the Republicans will probably get back in again. They will do stupd things again. By the end of their orgy of looting and warring (which will be even worse than Obama’s) the country is going to be extremely damaged. Right now things could be fixed. They probably won’t be, because Barack Obama has no intention of fixing main street, but they could be. By the time the US gets its next real chance, well, this hole is going to be mighty mighty deep.

You are also not restricted; you can place your bet wherever you are; Some website are customized to suit your language and understand the things and happenings on the game, also included the cash converted to your currency, so you know how much you bet or the equivalent of your bet on your currency. But then again, as you enjoy the online sports betting, you are responsible on what might be the outcome of your transactions online.

The reason why there is a line is because one team is going to be favored over another to win the game. This way the oddsmakers can level the playing field, making the bet attractive to both sides. In this case San Diego is the favorite and New England is the underdog. This means that if you are placing your bet on San Diego, the Chargers will have to beat the Patriots by at least 3 points for you to win the bet. If they lose the game or win by less than 3, you lose your bet. The second number shows 44, which is the over/under score. By betting the over, you are putting money on the possibility that the sum of both team’s score will be greater than 44-points at the end of the game. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
