In Case You Are Still Wondering Why "The World Is Better Than You Think"...

Tyler Durden's picture

If you want to avoid all the red ink in the futures this morning, and dig your head deep in the sand of denial, here is Goldman Sachs to the rescue. As we pointed out a few days ago, Jim O'Neill, who is likely more devastated by Man U's loss of this year's Premiership title than the daily accumulating of new and improved criminal charges against his firm (his response to that, and to anything else: "BRIC"), earlier led a call titled 'Why the World is better than you think.' We have decided to pass, but to avoid being branded non-objective pessimists, we provide our readers with the means to listen to the replay - this way you can get all your 100% RDA Vitamin H1 and Joseph Cohen hot flash..backs all at once.

Please join Jim O'Neill, MD and Head of Global Economics, Commodities and Strategy Research, and Professor Song Guoqing, Professor at Beijing University and special advisor to Beijing Gao Hua Securities, to discuss:

Who the fuck would want to buy anything in Manchester. It like buying something in El Paso .... but worse.

It could suck if it was actually a beer and not a fucking lager.

Want some lager with your beans gov'nor ?

Old joke for vintage car buffs:

Q: Why do Brits drink warm beer?

A: Because Lucas makes refrigerators.

Brings back fond memories of being "under the hood" of my /66 TR6 wondering "what went wrong"... fun car though!

Difficult to imagine anything worse than EP, but the strippers are 'entertaining'. ;-)

Not really, it would actually be like buying the New York Yankees. Only their athletes don't take performance enhancing cocktails.

The world is actually better than many alternative options we could have been led to. Dissecting it will always find complaints. When has the world ever been fair and balanced?

Rugby league has the worst doping problem in Britain, with more of its performers testing positive for banned anabolic steroids than any other sport in the country.

Figures released yesterday by UK Sport, the body responsible for drug testing in Britain, revealed that 18 leading players produced adverse findings for banned substances during the period April 2001 to March 2002.

That included 10 for anabolic agents, nearly half of the 26 cases among the 40 sports in which UK Sport conducts testing. During the same period the previous year only two rugby league players had tested positive for steroids.

Excellent piece of information.

anabolic steroids than any other sport.

me think, cycling. unless you restrict just to UK.

cycling now requires a biological passport to be carried by athletes 24/7.

any variations, GONE†

it is a start. neat idea.

 Hugh Hendry dismantling Jim O'Neill and the other China bulls. "I love Jim O'Neill. I love that Goldman Sachs guy. He says you either get it, or you don't. I don't get it. In the future there will be a Confucius saying: the wise man not invest in overcapacity. The flaw of the business model, at the center of it is a craving for power as opposed to profit."

Way too late to be worried about being branded non-objective pessimists.  LOL.

Well if Tyler(s) owns physical gold then it's optimism - why buy PMs if we are all going to end up dead?

If you have something to trade you will have fewer "problems" on the flip side:'

Oh god, I am in panic  ! The nytimes is going to start charging for the online content beginning January of next year ! 

How will I survive without their insight, investigative reporting, incorruptible journalism.

The capitalist in me is telling me buy nytimes shares because with the wave of subscribers they are going UP UP UP !

Stopped reading the times when they said the oil spike that drove prices up to $100 was purely due to fundamentals and nothing to do with speculation.

I still read it online to stay abreast of what the propagandists are up to. Once they start charging I'll have to watch CBS Evening News for my daily propaganda fix, I guess.
