« World Banking Status Quo Increasingly Expensive And Unstable | Main | Japan Withdraws All The Funds They Put Into Emergency Pool! »



You have the most clarity and critical thinking of any business blog I have come across. I throughly enjoy reading your perspective (backed by facts). You make the pros look like twits.

This invisible war (to most of the sleeping world) has been wagging since 1990, and I dare say it will be over within the next 4-6 years. The EU has just made its biggest mistake thus far (infusion of billions into a black hole); Mommy has to protect her raging infant Empire, to no effect. There is no turning back.

The ascendancy of the Asian Empire/Century is upon us.

Thank you, Carlos. I am not very popular and the bigger economic bloggers refuse to quote me or refer to my blog at all even though I have argued with all of them for literally years.

They want to imagine they have the inside dope as to what is going on. I read everyone, all over the place, I can 'speed read' 100 pages in little time at all. Even with a fast computer connection, I end up raising five pages at once and scan them all on my screen simultaneously and I select only 10% or less for inclusion in my stories.

One HAS to do this to keep up with the debt and beadth of events.

The media, as we know, is complicit.

Recall the puts on the DAX pre-9/11 - - - never any follow-up as to who, what when, etc.

My guess is that the big boys know exactly what's going on - more or less - and they are SCRAMBLING to figure out their next move.

They have to rationalize this mess - very Western mode of thinking, eh?

Their frigging computer models couldn't all be WRONG, now could they? (garbage in, of course, ...)

But, as you always say, this generation of Wall Street whiz kids has no institutional memory of when bad things happen to rich people.

you are on fire, girl!! Great columns on this topic!!

Thanks, Facti. Do look at my latest opus: the Japanese have withdrawn their emergency funds just 48 hours after putting them in! 'No emergency...FOR US...' they said.
