S&P has downgraded US debt, this has created panic in the markets, but the question is should we take S&P seriously when these credit rating agencies have proved that their understanding about economies is indeed poor.

Remember, it is the same S&P that gave AAA rating to mortgage backed securities in 2005-2007 and we all know what happened after that, so I guess its time to be bullish when S&P, Goldman and the likes become bearish on the world.
