  1. On NPR last week, a guest on a show described the current situation as one where Wall St. is holding a gun to its head and telling the rest of us/govt., ‘If you don’t help me, I will shoot’

  2. I thought 7 was a lucky number.

    What we see here is that Lawyers (house reps) don’t understand math. Or the reaction they will get in a highly interconnect complex system, also called chaotic systems (for a reason). Hold on to your seats, the roller coaster just started.

  3. Hello Om,
    I can’t believe that you still trust/get advise from Wall Street Folks-
    “as I gather more insights from folks around Wall Street”

    What were you thinking when you wrote the above statement? Pl drink some more coffee, if you are feeling sleepy…

    Did you ask them about their fate first? It’s hilarious when they predict the future of tech, when they can’t even understand what’s going on in their own backyard!

    Every one knows that high tech will be impacted but this financial mess won’t mark the end-of-the-road for innovation & high tech.


  4. For reasons too lengthy to go into, it’d really take the cake if I’m the 7th poster. Anyway, did you know many of the fat cats who circulate from board to board and from job to job throughout the financial industry, are also members of the Bilderberg Group and or the Trilateral Commission? When someone takes your money and steals your car, it makes an impression. When they belong to such secret political cliques, it leaves an indelible impression. Many elected officials even belong to these cabals. When Bill Clinton eased banking restrictions, he dished out $8-billion dollars for community reinvestment loans. When the financing schemes fell through, as is their wont whenever 30-million Mexican nationals buy inflated properties and default, it left banks in the lurch. Hillary Clinton counted on the loan giveaways to buy votes. Interestingly enough, had Hillary secured the nomination; she, instead of Barack Obama would preside over the bailout. So, where’s that $8-bilion plus dollars? The Global Initiative people (code speak for car thieves) took my money; they stole my car. If you or I did half the things these people have done, we’d be serving consecutive life sentences. Wise up, get angry, and let the bubble burst.

  5. All eyes are on the volatility of the Dow. If it’s Monday’s crash, or the aftermath recovery, the media can’t look past its instability. And that’s understandable given the popularity of the index, but misleading given the reach of the crisis and limits of the 107-year-old index. That’s why pulling the right strings depends on the choice of index during decision-making as I’ve discussed on http://peppercomblog.typepad.com.
