    For now and at what cost? Canada's housing bubble and rising household debt make America's look like a child's blow-bubble, especially at a time when your country's economy can no longer rely on exorbitant commodity prices.

    All of America's "bail-out the socialists" money was spent on Europe. Canada will be shit out of luck.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    I used sarcasm and seemingly you became confused, but maybe I got a feeling you did it just so when I thought you were confused I would post that you were confused. Thus making you win the sarcasm fight. Now I'm not sure what happened.

    <jk>Oh, so you work at Blizzard and know exactly whats its range. The point is just like America, the terrans like nukes and big explosions that cost taxpayers millions of dollars. </jk>

    On a serious note we don't the specs of the missle until blizzard releases information on it, so we can't actually say it a bad thing, we don't even have a photo of it.

    Its not even that good, the wait times are terrible and the money is non-existant for medical procedures and prescriptions.

    You mean, just like noob 4v4 allies, America has to go on the offensive to protect its lazy, nothing-but-macroing shit allies?

    Where are you getting your information? Canada is recovering extremely well from the global crash the US caused, mostly thanks to Alberta oil. Yeah the Keystone fallout stung a bit, but we have great relations with China and they're (literally) dying to get their hands on all our resources. Admittedly our biggest problem is health care right now thanks to my countrymen stupidly voting in the Conservatives and Steven Harper, who are pretty much the Republicans/Bush of our system. Spending money on jet fighters, wtf. At least they're not this new Wild Rose party... those fuckers are crazy.

    Are you actually blaming America for the world's dependence on a single country? Sorry, we aren't going to be able to create growth for you and bail out much longer. Or, perhaps, it is simply that you do no understand that Canada's past and future growth depend entirely on America maintaining the international trade system. Without America, Canada would wither and die.

    Either way, no, you're not recovering extremely well. Canada is simply trading pain now for more pain later. Similiar to Japan. Japan seemed to be growing at lightning speeds for a decade past when they actually collapsed by creating massive amounts of debt. They appeared to being doing well. In actuality, the created enough debt to be the 2.5x their current GDP. Instead of growing as fast as they appeared, they collapsed and twenty years later their economy is still half the size that it was in 1989.

    A country can always look good if you ignore debt.

    And, before you say anything, America has enough in-country and global assets to solve the debt problem in a few years. There is an estimated $339 trillion dollars of taxable assets. The problem is getting these things taxed politically.

    ----

    I get my information from official government economic data.




    Canada's home price-to-income, income-to-debt, and housing sales are all at levels far worse than America at the height of the bubble. Which is typical of Socialist country afraid of pain enough to try to generate growth out of nothing. Canada is dependent upon the selling of resources and construction. Yet, with China entering a Japan-like lost decade, you aren't going to be able to rely on them for much longer. Canada's economy became massively skewed because of China's growth, and it will collapse along with China because of this.

    Socialism at its purest.

    Sure, China never slowed down because they spent massive amounts of money on construction projects, in terms of growth rate. Too bad that growth came from debt (i.e. not real growth). None of them made economic sense and they're now all bankrupting the country a few short years later. China went from having third-worldly low levels of corporate debt to having European levels in a few short years. Why? Socialist projects designed to avoid painful recessions. Same with Canada. There is a reason that Canada and Australia are by far the most shorted (expected to take a massive nose dive) stocks in the world right now. There also a reason why my short stocks have made a 90% increase since October 2011. I should thank the Canadian/World media for not hammering these problems to death like American media.

    DSquid, don't ruin the positive trend we've had.

    --Oops, I thought this was the off-topic forum. Not going to take this discussion any further.
