U.S., Europe and Japan have share one big problem: protecting incumbent creditors – Interfluidity”
(Counterparties item)

BW finds this “compelling” – that’s revealing in its own right. The author argues in favor of policies that promote the interests of those who have not yet demonstrated prudence (or have demonstrated its opposite), and in favor of policies that expropriate the savings of those who have.

To quote a famous man – “Include me out”.

You just have to see the light, TD. The CEOs and the Wise Guys on the Street and in government are actually the ethical peers of Mother Teresa. They need and deserve their 8-digit annual paydays, and only a churlish muppet would deny that to them. I’m not sure exactly why any of this is – but Danny Black will doubtless be along shortly to set us all straight about that.

OBTW – do you know how use a rifle?

I’m not a commie or socialist but there is something very wrong here that needs to be addressed. I work for Verizon which is a healthy, profitable company. The old CEO and incoming CEO pulled in 50 MILLION DOLLARS between them last year. So how is this profitable company treating the workers? By trying to take away pensions,healthcare and outsourcing American jobs overseas!
Do these CEO’s feel any obligation toward keeping the middle class alive in this country or is it all just “hooray for me, the heck with you? ” I’m pretty sure I already know the answer to that

question.
