Hello Mr Donner- One of several Int'l Journals I try to follow. Another is the South African:
Sometimes I spend more time looking at Real Estate than skimming news.
FT India (financial times) is usually a good visit. Interesting to get a "foreign"  perspective. You might like the previous post on JPM if you hav'nt seen it. I bet it's a beauty at 6000' ft today. Regards

 I'll bet it's a beauty too.  But I'm in La Costa for my four month visit to my SoCal home each year.  Back in God's country June 15.  Come on up to the lake sometime!  We'd have a blast.

Best regards.

Stealing gold, Goldman style. Yeah, well take the whole mine, thanks, suckas!

And Dr. Doom says these guys are not dirty...Now I must question Marc Faber a bit more carefully.

ralphmachio - Yea, got collusion? Got RICO? To me the interesting part is how the 15 banks, all advised by Dirty Slachs, all just happened to harmonize indepently and simulaniously. What a coincidence! The other thing is these tactics are nothing new as this was from '99 and continue. Here's another good one- this about JPM.
