The purpose of this column is not to warn of an imminent assault on Iran, though personally I think it is coming, and soon. Rather, it is to warn of a possible consequence of such an attack. Let me state it here, again, as plainly as I can: an American attack on Iran could cost us the whole army we now have in Iraq. William Lind  [more]

12 Ways To Prepare For The Next Great Depression

April 13, 2008 – Comments (23) | RELATED TICKERS: SKF , SRS , GLD

I am estimating a severe recession. A depression is possible and the greater the expectation of a depression, the greater the likely hood of a depression. The US economy is estimated to be 60-70% based on consumption, if consumers cut back (and they are) the impact will be even more severe. Wallstreet, retail, homebuilding, auto manufacturing are laying off people.

This may pass and be minor event, but I do not think it is. Neither does George Soros. “I consider this the biggest financial crisis of my lifetime,” Mr. Soros said during an interview Monday in his office overlooking Central Park. A “superbubble” that has been swelling for a quarter of a century is finally bursting, he said. (ref "The Face of a Prophet", NY Times By LOUISE STORY, Published: April 11, 2008)  [more]

Venice Bar Uses Discount to Lure 'Poor Yanks' (Harry's Bar - Ernst Hemingway Haunt)

Venice Bar Uses Discount to Lure 'Poor Yanks'

Harry's Bar in Venice has offered hospitality to tourists and expatriates since the days of Ernest Hemingway. But in recent months Harry's has noticed a sharp drop in the number of Americans showing up at the home of the Bellini cocktail. So restaurant owner Arrigo Cipriani has a novel solution: a 20% discount to subprime-stricken Americans for everything on the menu. The discount will last as long as the weak dollar keeps Americans away from the classic Venice establishment, Cipriani told Reuters. US citizens won't need to bring their passports—"We will judge by the accent," he said. If other Anglophones manage to fool the bartender, they'll get the discount as well, he added. Indeed, Cipriani knows something about deception: he was convicted of tax fraud last year.  [more]
