Well, this damn good news just keeps pouring in! Despite all the efforts of local, state, and federal government to hobble American businesses, things are improving anyway! First General Electric and United Technologies, then today, the worst news yet: Caterpillar reported a 44% increase in quarterly profits* and the hiring of nearly 5,000 people! What the hell are these people doing hiring workers when they should be out buying canned goods and gold bars in preparation for the next crash??
And then, just when you thought Monday could not get any worse, Greenwich home buyers had to chime in with their “good news”: Reported today…
7 accepted offers, with asking prices as follows…
Those numbers have been disguised somewhat to protect these new, still “fragile” deals, but the properties are located throughout the town, from the northwest corner, all the way to the southeast.
This is only Greenwich, I know. There’s a whole lot of hurtin’ real estate out there in places like Nevada and Florida, but it is often said that towns like Greenwich lead the rest of the country out of recession, so…we shall see, shan’t we?
* “Profits”…ewwww! Evil! Bad!
