I was in the hills yesterday for an exit inspection. Yes, I always do it personally. Scary.

If it weren't for breaking the lease penalties I'd being paying him more than the security deposit back.

The thing I hated about being a landlord was that the good tennants never stuck around.

California could be divided into eight separate states each of which would by every measure be in the top half all 57 states by every practical measure. (The exception possibly being Alta California's population.)

Could any one of those states supply their own water?

Fair Economist wrote:

Actually, it did happen once, in the 80's, on the chart. Still, your point that a drop to this level usually signifies an oncoming recessions is valid. The only reason I can see that "this time is different" is that the affected states are most smaller (economically). Looks like it's mostly Medicaid non-expanders, too (all but NM, I think)

IIRC, during that period in the '80s, we experienced a series of "sector recessions", e.g. an energy sector recession, a semiconductor recession, etc.

arthur_dent wrote:

What strikes me about chart 1 is that in the last 3 expansion we have never been this far in, hit 40, and then not been in a recession a few months later. Some people think business cycles have no period associated with them. I'd say there is a reasonable range and we are past the median point of the range.

But for some reason they came around and replaced the transformers in our neighborhood at 15 years.

older ones were cooled with an oil containing PCBs or something. they may have just been upgrading.
