Iranian Warships cross into Suez Canal

Quote:
Iranian warships have entered the Mediterranean Sea for the second time since the revolution in 1979, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported.
A destroyer and its supply vessel passed through the Suez Canal and their destination is unclear, the BBC said. An Iranian navy admiral said the mission showed the might of Iran and the countryís message of peace, the BBC reported, citing the official Islamic Republic News Agency.
Iranian vessels sailed into the Mediterranean a year ago in a move that Israel said was a provocation, the BBC said.

And now they have stopped oil sales to British and French companies

Gallup Poll: Unemployment back up to 9% in Mid-February

Recent Gallup Poll has shown a dramatic increase in unemployment, rising from the 8.3% Mid-Jan levels to a new 9% Mid-Feb level. That's a 0.7% increase in one month! Of course, in that long article I wrote a while back, I told you guys about how the unemployment picture was indeed NOT getting better, and that post-January we would begin to see the real data coming out again. Here's the real data:





For those not familiar with Gallup:

Quote:
Gallup's mid-month unemployment reading, based on the 30 days ending Feb. 15, serves as a preliminary estimate of the U.S. government report, and suggests the Bureau of Labor Statistics will likely report on the first Friday of March that its seasonally adjusted unemployment rate increased in February.
Quote:
The U.S. unemployment rate, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, is 9.0% in mid-February, up from 8.6% for January. The mid-month reading normally reflects what the U.S. government reports for the entire month, and is up from 8.3% in mid-January.

EDIT: I'm just also going to follow up with that Iranian warship story. Here's a new video from today.

Hopefully we don't end up with world war 3 this year..

Edit: also the unemployment rate increasing sounds about right, since a lot of seasonal workers are done with work now.

Welcome!

Well as I was reading an article on Marketwatch regarding greece I came across this:
"With unemployment already running over 20%, the approved minimum-wage cuts of 22% and planned reduction of the public work force by a fifth by 2015 may leave Greece questioning the price of euro-area membership,” said Carl Paraskevas, director of sector economics at Lloyds TSB in London, in a note to clients."

For the Visual people like me:

And well it got me curious to see the average unemployment currently in the Eurozone and I came across this :

Name:  unemployment in euro zone copy.jpg
Views: 68
Size:  43.0 KB

Interesting how Greece has double the average unemployment in the eurozone now. With the austerity plan now passed I'd expect that number to rise since im sure there will be just a few government jobs are going to be cut in the spending cuts . I would also expect to see the unemployment to rise even further due to the tax hikes on all the business in Greece that havent already been burned down!

Greece is in a choke hold if they leave the eurozone they'll end up having to go back to the drachma and print a sh*t load of money in order to pay off their debts, which will lead to another Zimbabwe story of hyper-inflation. Where they will eventually have to end up using a foreign currency as Zimbabwe did. The Europe leaders wont allow this and well have a breaking new headline like this one that just appeared:

"Euro Zone Finance Ministers Reach Deal on Greek Package; Financing to Total 130 Billion Euros: Reuters"

Further kicking the can down the road..

Just a quick summary for those who are unaware of whats going on.

sarcasm fail on my part. Pretty shocking that someone in your finance club wouldn't know this stuff about Greece. My finance club was unbelievably competitive, it helps that it was run by an ex fund manager!

Best thing he taught the class, many times the news stories will write a title and change the "up" or "down" in the same title through the day as it made sense, as well as changing the reason in the title and leaving everything else. He really tried to drive the point that its not an exact science and that decisions need to be made on many different levels.

Yeah the club is still relatively new so it isnt exactly the greatest , but with time people will start to pick up! I can imagine haha having an ex fund manager would be awesome, whats better than learning someone with real world experience
