[Quote] I'm sorry, but this is some of the dumbest stuff I've read in a long time. Citing some shit you read in your first year economics textbook? If you didn't still live at home, or if you actually had a real job, you would know that 90% of the theory you learn in college, especially pertaining to the financial markets, does not apply because of one simple concept: PEOPLE ARE IRRATIONAL. All this neo-classical Keneysian economic policy bullshit has FAILED. It can never work. It never has worked. Why? Lets just examine it's basic premises... 1) Rational preferences among outcomes with a identifiable and associated value 2) People maximize their utility/firms will maximize their profits 3) People act independently on the basis of full and relevant information Basically, if your little textbook was correct, the following would happen: If you prefer beer over liquor, you will always drink beer. You will NEVER drink liquor (1) You drink beer until you get a nice buzz, and you stop right then and there. You never get wasted because this does not maximize utility (2) When you're at the bar with your friends, and they're buying shots, you won't take one. Not because this contradicts point 1, but rather because you know one shot leads to two, two to three, etc. You are acting independently based on the information available to you. This is the same as if the CEO of Boeing, your best friend, was a little tipsy and told you that tomorrow Singapore Airlines would announce that they have just purchased 10,000 747's and instead of purchasing every single share of Boeing possible, you still spend the next week behind a computer, researching ever single detail about Boeing, Singapore Airlines, and the aviation industry in general (3) NONE OF THIS STUFF HAPPENS IN ACTUALITY. KEYNESIAN ECONOMICS DOES NOT APPLY TO THE REAL WORLD. IT NEVER HAS! STOP BELIEVING THAT EVERYTHING YOU READ IN A TEXTBOOK AND DO SOME OF YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS. THEORY IS JUST THAT, A THEORY! Seriously, it disappoints me that kids are being trained and taught that everything that they read, in terms of theory, as a practical application. You seriously think it's wise to spend right now? I dare you to walk into any office in your Financial District and tell that to the people working there. They'll laugh in your face. These people have mortgages, car payments, etc and right now they need to do EVERYTHING in their power to stockpile as much cash as possible in case they lose their job. Otherwise, the outcome could be catastrophic. You know the economy is bad when accountants are worried about their jobs, and they are trust me. Buy a car now? Good luck getting financed. Paying in cash? That's wise - I can't think of a better way to cut your money in half overnight. Leasing? Yes, lets lock ourselves into a 39 month financial commitment when the economy is the worst it's been in our lifetime. Want to buy a house? Ever heard of negative equity? Of course you have, you're all grown up and you're a college boy now. But for the 15 year olds here, that's what happens when you pay $400,000 today for a townhome that's only worth $380,000 tomorrow. THERE IS A BOTTOM TO THIS DOWNWARD SPIRAL WE ARE IN AND WE'RE NO WHERE NEAR IT YET. I could keep going, but what's the point. Kids will be kids, they will continue to spend, and your post just reaffirms that notion. And before you start talking to me about education, how about completing your degree first? Sincerely, hollertronix B.Comm, Finance

Alright how old are you guys? Honestly, clean the wax out of your ears, put on your reading glasses, and take a hint as to what's happening with the economy. This is going to be the slowest holiday shopping season EVER. You have no idea how many businesses are going out of business after Christmas. Spending money on ANYTHING right now is stupid (house, condo, car, jeans, watch... anything). Stuff is only going to get cheaper. But do what you gotta do. I guess the Hypebeast demographic has always been about SPEND SPEND SPEND.

[VANCOUVER] AJIV's at Value Village Hastings

Just a heads up... There's a pair of white/chrome AJIV Retro +'s (the Eminem joints from 2001) at Value Village on Hastings. They are on sale for $39.99. The midsoles are yellowing, but other than that, they're in pretty wearable condition. They are a size 9.5. Just thought I would give you guys a heads up...
