first of all I must congratulate u guys for getting a board of ur own. I would be visiting u guys here as frequently as I can. I hope that u guys can do the same too.. Yeah, we can carry on our debates.. minus the rhetoric and one-upmanship.. So all the best to u guys.. BTW: I would like to put in one more point.. What I have realised in this board and the former india-pak board is that most pakistanis compare their economical status with Indians.. Well frankly speaking India is still a 3rd world country and has a lot of advancement to do.. We are aiming higher.. so should u. take care

Hey MoP. I could be wrong, but I think that CBJ meant corrections in the stock market. In other words, something that can keep the balance of the market and not keep it going in one direction forever. As you might know, in order for a market to remain "safe" for investment, it should remain at a decent equilibrium, with minor short-term swings on both sides of the equilibrium line. Contrary to popular belief, the consistent rapid growth of the stock market is not beneficial at all. In fact if it grows too much too quickly, when a correction finally occurs to set it back at equilibrium, the result is a stock market crash. The crash occurs when people, satisfied with the going price of a stock, decide to sell. As shares are sold, their value declines further, prompting more and more people to sell their shares, until the value has reached abysmal numbers. The reuslt is that nobody has money, and the country is in recession or depression. The key to surviving a crash is accurately estimating at which point the crash will occur, something that is next to impossible without insider information. If you can't do that, you are relatively screwed because the value falls extremely steeply and losses are insanely difficult to recover, even if you sell after the first major drop. Thus, if minor corrections can make sure that prices don't rise high enough to spark a major sell-off. The immediate cause of the Great Depression of the 1930s was the US Stock Market Crash of 1929. The crash occurred because a post WW1 boom in investment and production led to massive investment by individuals in the NYSE. When people started selling in 1929, the values of shares fell sharply and eventually just about everybody either sold their shares, or were left with worthless ones. This, plus the fact that postwar Europe was an economic mess led to one of the worst depressions in the history of the world. I do hope this answers your question. My father and I haven't read the numbers for the BSE in quite some time, but rest assured that they probably haven't reached crisis proportions as of yet, else someone (*cough cough* Jagadish Bhagwati *cough cough*) would have said something. If you're interested, I highly suggest that you google up Jagadish Bhagwati. He's one hell of an economist, and one whom I highly, highly respect. ;) -HoH

Bang on HOH!!.. given ur age, I am surprised by the level of ur intellect. Anyway, u don't always have to look at the stock market in absolute terms. The indian market is quite well placed.. No cause of worry as of now. Why most people are hoping for a correction is to get a chance to pump in money themselves. I would like to put in some more myself. ;) Well, MOP, I don't watch much television on the weekends as I'd rather catch up with my friends and go for a movie or go bowling etc etc...(u know what the etc is hehe) Yeah the F-1 is something which I don't like to compromise on though. Arsenal is one hellua team, I'd root for them anyday..

Lol I got it drilled repeatedly into my head over the summer when I took Macroeconomics at my local university. Interesting class, but a rather boring setup for a high school student. I'm used to engaging in discussion with my teahers and friends, but I guess college is different. Lots of hot older girls though. Too bad I have a girlfriend. Don't get the mistaken impression that I'm some sort of Indian supernerd. I'm really not. I do have a life which includes soccer, cricket, tennis, karate, my girlfriend, my guy friends, movies, videogames, etc. -HoH

MOP, Nah, I did not mean that u are a supernerd or somehting.. most people who are good at stuff like business-economics, aren't nerds usually..;) And yeah, college would give u more options in terms of women surely ;) As they say, "love ur neighbour, just, don't get caught!!!"
