States accounting for two-thirds of the global economy are either holding down their exchange rates by direct intervention or steering currencies lower in an attempt to shift problems on to somebody else, each with their own plausible justification. Nothing like this has been seen since the 1930s.
Australia was the perfect place for the world’s top business people to learn from the global financial crisis, Steve Forbes said today. As hundreds of tycoons, CEOs and capitalists began arriving in NSW’s capital city today for the annual Forbes Global CEO Conference, host Mr Forbes said: “From an outsider’s perspective, the finances of Australia have been excellent compared to the rest of the world.

U.S. Treasury Stumbles Selling Citi Shares (David B.)
“The sales of Citigroup stock have slowed way down in July and August … The US Treasury will not finish its share sale by … the end of the year,” said Linus Wilson, a professor of finance at the University of Louisiana. “The only option for the Treasury if it wants to exit Citigroup before the year-end seems to be to conduct a large secondary offering of the stake.”
Like A Thief In The Night (Davos The Narcissist)
To date, the crime syndicate has struck 3,800 times. At the bottom of this article you will find a partial list of the mob hits that have been made by the organized crime syndicate many refer to as: La Cosa Nos(Cen)tra(l) Banksters. The families of the diseased are large – entire nations. They made the unfortunate and common mistake of trusting their late, and once rich Uncle Currency with safeguarding the value stored in their life savings. Those that didn’t take out a life insurance plan suffered. Many, like the little children of Argentina, actually starved to death.
The modus operandi is identical in every case. The loot is taken first, the heist ends with a rub on the mark.

Seafood Crisis (Jeff B.)
Too many hooks in the water. That’s the problem with today’s fisheries.

A new study suggests that our current appetite could soon lead to a worldwide fisheries collapse.
