We are entering in the contraction phase of a business cycle.
Recession has already shown us its ugly face, how much worse do you think it is going to get?

How would you response to this recession?
Any great strategy to share with us?

I find it abit funny, when recession is looming, we can have so many price hike at one time.

Make your decisions long term.
Ride out the storm.
Cut down going to motorshows.
For XMMs are bad for your blood pressure.
Eat less salt and sugar and don't worry.
As you'll only lose more hairs.
Shoot with what you have.
And dream about one day
When every new digicam has HD movies
and affordable on one month of Instant noodle diet.
Most of all be happy.

From July 1997 it started crashing from 1900 points and left with a mere of 800 points by Sept 1998.

I would say from 1999 January, the market started to pick up again.

Just imagine DBS was only worth $3.50 in 1997...It's about hovering around $17.00 plus now....

Let's dig out some history.

By Godzilla:
1997 It took one year+ to recovery.
From July 1997 it started crashing from 1900 points and left with a mere of 800 points by Sept 1998.
I would say from 1999 January, the market started to pick up again.
Just imagine DBS was only worth $3.50 in 1997...It's about hovering around $17.00 plus now....


1987 It took three years to recover. Turned for the better when US attacK Iraq.


1929 The Great Depression Recover within one Year
"The stock market turned upward in early 1930, returning to early 1929 levels by April, though still almost 30 percent below the peak of September 1929"

I went to second hand car dealers last weekend. just to check how bad the market is.
The first thing they asked me is, am i taking a full loan.
Then they went on to explain that banks are starting to reject applicants asking for full loan.

Has credit crunch hit our shore? :dunno:

Live simply.
Do not throw money around.

Do not anyhow "invest" your life savings to dubious wannabee trusts and "xxxx-bonds".

If others want to talk big and act rich, let them - do not follow.

My advise is:
When people ask you to invest, you first think Durai and Ming Yi should be on your second tought, after that than you make a decision.

Unless the money becomes banana money ...

Anyone here read/studied the 1929 Great Depression?

This is Great Depression 2.0. The causes are similar, mainly money. (What is Money?)

(But many are trying to say it is not, perhaps for psychological comfort and assurance, or just self delusionary, as thinking about bad things is bad for feng shui perhaps.)

Version 1.0 led to WWII and a new world order thereafter, and its effect lingered for decades.

Version 2.0 has only just started and the end is not in sight yet. Maybe a new superpower will arise from Uncle Sam's ashes.

What is the best strategy in this changing world order?

I think nobody knows.

People still debate over the causes and cures for Version 1.0.

Money may be altogether useless.

People have been stocking up on gold - the tangible traditional store of value. It at least has some uses, like make wires, and not like the paper in money, which cannot even be used as toilet paper. But gold is just another piece of metal like iron. And what is "value"? Can it be stored in any thing?

Maybe in the new world order there is no money.
