Screwey Legalese of the Day



April 13, 2007 – Comments (1)

From Bill Gross's latest musings on interest rates and RE -- which look to me like a call for cuts from the Fed. (Does anyone else notice that Fed action is completely disconnected from mortgage rates these days?)

Anyway, on to the amusing boilerplate.

Post something online and then pretend that people can neither reproduce it in snippets no matter now small, nor even so much as refer to it?

The lawyers at PIMCO must be smokin' the strong stuff.

I haven't read it yet--thanks for reminding me to go check their site--but yes, Bill et al are in the 'almost imminent recession' camp and are really lobbying for Alan to win-over Ben.  They even sent TMFKopp to ride shotgun in Ben's Inflation Cruiser.  Don't believe me?  Go see the latest episodic installment of The Alan & Ben Show! over on my blog.


PS: I've got to go do a bunch of posts now quoting PIMCO stuff...maybe we need to add a primer about Fair Use over on the CAPS help pages?
