Barry and Timmy are going to have to change the course with the yuan (renminbi). Instead of whimpering that China isn't a currency manipulator, they will need to introduce a storage and transport tax on containers. Sorry Warren, country first, BNSF second.

Brown the Clown....

Is into populist economics....

Which is handily defined as ¨say whatever it is
that will get some idiot to vote ....for what it sounds like....

Then deal with the problems later....


Brown is a perfect example of what plagues both
the US and the UK....

Just for fun....review the wiki biographies not only of
Browns...but any political name....

100 out of a 100 will have no background whatsoever with respect to the industries....about which to make laws....

Politics has moved from Kings aand Queens to what it currently is....

But there is a long long way to go ....before a
properly designed political system will take hold....

This will be when every vote has a computer and knows how to use it....

Until then...there will be more Brown Clowns ruining everything they touch and more....only for someone else to
to pick up the bill...

It is ¨Brown Clown¨closing time....

NOW we know Who brought many to the brink
“The simultaneous selling of securities to customers and shorting them because they believed they were going to default is the most cynical use of credit information that I have ever seen,” said Sylvain R. Raynes, an expert in structured finance at R & R Consulting in New York. “When you buy protection against an event that you have a hand in causing, you are buying fire insurance on someone else’s house and then committing arson.”

turning Dubai empty tourist attractors into the nuclear waste dump is an ingenious plan. Also, given the cost per reactor of about 6 bl the scale of it is... amusing, ironic, funny, stupid you name it - they got it.

Lets make nuclear deal with Mongolia, they pay 5 Bln and they can use it (nuclear reactors) for 15 min every day, then sell them real estate software for the next 3 bln, I hope they don't like their yurts and they buy into our very energy efficient dog houses (2X4 and other shit)

I especially like the response from Nigeria.  Yes, he "snuck" into a country of which he is a citizen and his father is a highly-respected member of the banking community.  We call that "going home."

That's almost as good as the Dutch officials' responses of "well, shit, OUR security worked, dunno what the fuck ya'll talking about."  Worked real well, assholes.  Maybe if you weren't trying to appease the natives over a cartoon, your security would have worked just a little bit better.  Ohhhh the irony is rich and frothy on this one.
