      Apparently it was shitty if you lost your job or bought a house at the top, but I had a job and was a rentfag so wasn't really affected that much. There wasn't the huge rising inflation we're seeing right now that I recall.

      it honestly wasn't anywhere near as bad as anyone says
      though my portfolio was small
      it was fucked for people who had big retirement funds who were about to retire (their lifesavings got slashed in half basically)
      honestly it was fine
      people recall it as this huge thing but as usual it was just a media frenzy for the most part FUDDING absolutely everything
      think of how many millionaires it made in the years after it though, literal retard real estate flippers and real estate agents now have net worths of $5m-$10m
      i hope everything dumps because it'll be a huge chance to get rich assuming your life is in a decent position and you didn't go all in at the top of everything.

      It didn’t affect me much. I was 20, working my part time job and in college. My job which normally gave me 24-30 hours reduced me to the minimum of 12 hours a week, which was fine since ai was working 2 jobs. Definitely less sales, we had a hiring freeze for like 3 years. What is coming in the near future will be really fucking serious though.

      i was too young too really see it happen as i was in uni at the time
      but as other anons pointed out even as a broke ass student barely had problems, gas for cars was expensive for about half a year and the beer price got 2 big hikes but food was largely unaffected, which is in stark contrast to today
      the one thing that did happen and we heard through older graduating people was that the labor market for fresh grads was totally fucked and finding out after 3 decades of get a uni degree and you are upper middle class that now you cant get any job is pretty bad
      right after that began the terminal death spiral of the wagie as a life plan, i lived in western europe and right after the crisis saw a mass immigration of young educated med euros into north western europe that added to the no jobs problem
      from that point on the negotiating power of wagies even degreed was permanently death and real estate started exploding, also work place conditions became terrible with more diversity and shoddier work standards
      now we are reaching the end of that road, last time the pressure cooker was relieved because people could move to stable areas right then start a civil war in their own countries but now there is nothing left to escape too
      its going to be fun when germany reaches 50% youth unemployment again with the roach infestation it has, its going to be mad max urban street gang fights like the 30's again, its a powder keg waiting to blow
      i hope you accumulated enough to piss off somewhere isolated

      and thats the optimistic scenario if you follow the zeihanist view its a permanent reduction in oil output mass starvation in the middle east and subsequent migrant waves on top of that

      I graduated college in 2009. It was awful. Could not find a job for approximately six months. Had my boomer parents baffled that I couldn't find one without walking in and giving a handshake and sucking the boss's dick. They nearly kicked me out of the house, and it was a very stressful situation. Sent out dozens upon dozens of resumes and received no work or interest.
      Got stuck in temp work for approximately the next three years doing soul crushing labor. Ended up working in warehouse after and my previous job was so bad that it was actually an improvement.
      This current environment feels very similar to that. Only now I have two kids and a wife who just ran up a $3000 credit card debt without telling me and I have no choice but to cover it without my brokerage account.
      Don't know what else to say except shit fucking sucks.

The only reason it stopped was due to me looking at the statement, he tried to lie and say he had no idea what the charges were and our info must have been stolen. Cancel the card or put a hard spending limit on it. In case of emergency she can call you to remove the limit. No second chances unless you can afford that surprise again. This was the second time he was overspending our agreed budget, the first time he only spent $200 over and a serious talk did not fix the problem. We're paying his tuition out of pocket, our budget is important to stick to.

      It was scary because not only were assets going down, but people were losing their jobs. At my workplace they told a lot of people to stop coming in on Fridays and cut their salaries to 80% of usual. That lasted quite at while.
      Some other people, who were more productive, were asked to stop coming in every other Friday, and their salaries were cut to 90%. And the best people were not asked to do anything, and kept working every day at 100% salary.
      Pretty weird to see them doing something so merit based. I wonder if that would fly today.
      Right now feels worse in a different way because, every time I go to the grocery store, my bill is higher than last time. $100 feels like such a smaller amount than it used to. There was nothing like that in 2008-9.

      If you bought the top of housing and lost your job you got fucked. If you chose to not get a job you missed out on the greatest transfer of wealth in history. 16 trillion dollars in lost net worth for consoomers and boomers.

      The young people who played it right became 30 year old boomers. We bought 3,600 sqft on a household income under $50,000. It was literally the American dream, Cashiers, fast food workers, car wash attendants, and parking valets were able to buy houses if they weren't idiots with their money. For a solid 5-7 years all you needed to do was hold a job and buy a house, then you got to live the rest of your life as though you were a true boomer.

      I was a financial retard that didn't know anything about the markets, but I knew people were selling off personal possessions just to stay afloat. I could afford to buy a pinball machine and a 500 booster magic/pokemon collection every month, so I did until I ran out of space. (But I had a LOT of space).

      This doesn't feel the same. Financial assets are correcting and rebalancing, but we don't have massive defaults and lost jobs yet. Everything is more expensive but people can afford their mortgages. It really feels like it's all the pain with none of the potential gain. I hope I'm am wrong and we get a proper price crash catastrophe so young people can get in.

      In 2008 I was about 20 years old. I had a year ot so of community college under my belt and had worked a few different manual labor gigs that paid well but I was having a hard time keeping my truck running. It was a $1000 pos. I eventually got a $800 car that was old and run down but was at least reliable. Got a job making $13 an hour and I was thrilled. I had nothing invested at this point but was just starting to make some money and was saving. I didn't know anyone invested in the markets except my boss. He was my age and was making a killing in his business and he was losing a bit of his money in the stock market. But he seemed fine. My parents didn't seem too worried they were not really invested in anything either. And they didn't lose employment from what I could tell. This scenario in 2022 seems much more problematic. Everything is unaffordable now. Wages haven't gone up much since 2008

      People who think today is worse haven't seen shit. Today is nothing compared to the 2008 shitshow. The whole banking system nearly collapsed.

      2008 was nuclear level bad if you worked in one of the industries most affected. I'm in construction engineering, and there was basically no construction for 5 years. Half-built developments sat around abandoned for years. Most companies like mine reduced staff levels by 90% or closed completely. People were even getting laid off from government jobs. The climb out of that hole was long and slow.

      It was really fucked. I knew that the housing market was a bubble. There was a lot of talk about it even as far back as 2005. The low interest rates that the fed enacted at the end of the Dotcom bubble fueled the housing bubble and the same thing is happening now. It was actually a slow motion train wreck for for than an entire year. That's the where we currently stand with the current wreck. Then the shit really hit the fan when the banks started imploding. I remember Nancy Pelosi coming on tv and talking about the bailout and not looking like she knew what she was doing.

      My company got rid of little things like disposable cups and flatware to save money. Eventually I got fired to.

      What I didn't realize is how powerful the money printing was. When the Fed turning on QE, the problem was basically solved for the time being. It's crazy but the banks held onto some of those houses for a decade until they could sell them without a loss and I never thought they would hold that long.

      Anyway, for an old guy like me, it's easy to tell what's going to be a nothing burger and what's going to be serious. This time is going to be serious. We don't have financial stress yet but some bank or investment house somewhere is going to break once the tide starts getting really low.

        Old people are massive drain on the economy.
        The ratio of retired people/workers is skyrocketting.
        This means more and more value produced is consumed without bringing anything back.
        The inevitable result is dwindling growth and standards of living for millenials and zoomers.

      Nah,the recession was definitely felt by majority of the working class during 2008.

      For me, personally, rhat's when things in my family got really bad. Dad lost his business and my mom for the first time in her life was forced to get a job so we wouldn't lose the house.

      Lots of fighting and arguing occured between my parents and resulted in them getting divorce.
      Dad went from being a relatively calm adult to a manchild who seemed like he was constantly pissed off 24/7 and hated his life. Would always blame me and my brother for things we had no control over financially.

      family vacations stopped and we skipped Christmas for a few years.

      If we experience another recession, I'll be ready since I had to live through like what?
      4? 5 by now?

    it is going to be different

    developed economies will have a recession and inflation-deflation-inflation cycle that is going to go on for 3-5 years because of excess debt and deglobalization

    china will have a Japan 1990 moment because their private debt levels are higher than US or Europe. they cannot just borrow 3 Trillion dollars every year to build railroads and commieblocks like they have been doing for the last decade. Yen weakening is going to cause a huge set of problems for PBoC

    It really depends. Take the food shortages as an example. Headlines will read "Shortages in cooking oil". The fine print will say there is a shortage in 1 or 2 types of cooking oils. But there are like 7 or 8 types of cooking oils in the store. So if you just use a different oil then you don't really notice the """massive shortages of cooking oil at the store"""It is simultaneously an actual shortage and a nothingburger at the same time.

    Every single crisis that has come along for the past 40+ years, all the governments and central banks have done is kick the problem down the road. So every time there is a new crisis, it is always bigger than the last as the faults in the system accumulate and the patchwork of "fixes" are showing their cracks. Sooner or later as these faults get bigger and the government/banks runs out of ideas (they literally just make it up as they go along), the dam is going to break. It might not be this crisis, but whatever "fix" they think of to keep their heads above water this time will only make it worse in the next crisis 10 years from now.

    The entire blog is a goldmine, big thank you to the anon who was the first one to post it in some thread. ECoE rising is irreversible unfortunately, at least with our current tech

        He does sound quite preachy and doomy but his energy model makes a lot of sense

    This particular bear has been more frustrating cos only my DeFi investments seems to be doing so well.
    As Equilibrium DeFI launches EQ token I shall get on more tokens to have better chances at crowdfunding programs on their DEX.

    It will be worse.

    2008 was mostly bad for boomer and gen x homeowners living will beyond their means, middle class workers, and retirees who went all in on like one or two investments.

    I think the worst part of 2008 was companies discovered they could just turn most of their employees into "contractors", and that they could get away with fraudulently hiring unneeded H1Bs by making shit up. Pre-2008 people used to be actual employees at companies, now theyre underpayed cucktractors, cucktractors "for hire", and gig workers.

    This time most everyone will suffer, and the elite and corporations will do everything they can to make sure this crisis isn't wasted by fucking over workers and average joes even more (they've already started it with shrinkflation). It wouldnt surprise me if the upcoming crash turned back the labor clock to the late 1800s and early 20th century. Expect company towns and Pinkerton level shit.

    Zoomies, prepare your anus! You're about to learn just how fucked shit can get, and how screwed you are.

        this level of hope is just foolish. The Petrodollar died on 30 August 2021, and we are going to have the worse food shortage in over 100 years.

    money is an illusion
    really no different than crypto at this point
    all you have to do is get people to stop believing in it and trading goods and services outside of government backed fake money and boom

                It's true. Down 1% if you bought a year ago, up 5% if you bought 6 months ago. Up 50% if you bought 5 years ago.
