Gavekal On The Coming Clash Of Empires: Russia's Role As A Global Game-Changer

Just when China is starting to offer an alternative—an alternative that the US should be trying to bury—the US is moving to “weaponize” the dollar and pound other nations—even those as geo-strategically vital as Russia—for simple domestic political reasons. It all seems so short-sighted.

Pat Buchanan Asks "In This Second American Civil War - Whose Side Are You On?"

"What has changed...It is not history. There have been no great new discoveries about Lee...What has changed is America herself. She is not the same country.

Will Whole Foods Be Amazon's Waterloo?

"What advantages does Amazon bring to the WF concept model? Pricing? Management? Logistics? I would argue they aren’t relevant. And actually, the mindset of current senior management at both companies are in for a culture shock that will surely be epic...I’ve seen it happen, and I know how they turn out. All I’ll say is this: not good."

Bill Blain: "It's A FUBAR Moment Of Monumental Proportions"

This morning we have a "best of times, worst of times" tale of two countries: In one, a young exciting new leader is riding the electoral wave and looks set to gain a massive government majority at next week's second vote.  In the second a tired and discredited political greasy-pole climber has tumbled off the wave and is drowning not waving.
