    The "correction" is well deserved. Somewhere between Murphy and Karma.... what goes up must come down, else we'd all be ruled by descendants of the Khans or Darius!

    Sounds brilliant, says nothing. Vapid to the nth.

    What's he frothing up for? It failed. Time to get back to Keynesianism. It's not the end of the world. That article was really just a lengthy dummy spit :lol:

    I thought it was inevitable that something would have to give, but I am not certain that is what you are asking. It was inevitable that bad practices would create an illusion of money that wasn't actually there.

    I think something inevitable along the lines of a population bomb lies in our future, too, and that'll make the current economic 'crisis' (I'm doing OK) look pretty small, imo.

    That is what it smelled like from the post - I'm glad I read your post before reading the whole article...

    Thanks Diuretic!

    Good idea, it's always better to rely on an Australian poster on a message board, than weighing through on your own. Now you know why the Diuretics and Grumps laugh at the US posters.

    Not always... just sometimes, especially if the quoted tease is also a lot of words about nothing. Besides, it's not like I commented on the article - I was just thanking Di for saving me the time of reading something I wasn't sure I would be interested in in the first place.
