Something Wicked This Way Comes

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. ~ 1 Peter 5:8
Much ink has been spilled over the condition of the economy, nation and the world with the opinions basically falling into one of two camps.1) Things have hit a temporary blip down and can and will/are recovering. 2) Things have fundamentally changed for the worse and the 'rules' by which we gauge things are also changing, thereby rendering much of the so-called analysis absolutely moot.

Consider for a moment a few of the recent headline grabbers -
The half-life of market intervention is shortening and the cost of each intervention is inversely proportional to its effectiveness. New highs in the Dow are relentless despite massive poverty, low level home ownership and other such metrics.

One who is assessing the current world landscape is left in the regrettable position of proclaiming that the rules are now defunct and that something truly evil is on the horizon.
