    WRM, market news: IMF cuts forecasts for global growth; some economists cite a slowdown in underlying growth (rather than cyclical the average rate is slowing). For related material on Quick Take topic providing additional context, see “Why China will not buy the world” – Martin Wolf, Financial Times – and “The astonishing collaspe of work in America” – Nicholas Eberstadt.

      Should you perhaps seek help for your unhealthy interest in flogging and the like? LOL

        Please, nothing is unhealthy about it 😉

        Though, I do love a running gag. Maybe it’s that which is unhealthy,

    As the great Chinese bubble bursts, the staying power of the party will be tested, severely tested. Amidst the global economic wreckedge , one nation stands tall, United States of America. How funny isn’t it ?

      On one hand ‘doing the least badly’ is damning with faint praise.

      On the other hand, falling from great height and going “Ow!” is infinitely better than going *splat*.

      I have paraphrased Mark Twain like this before: The U.S. is the worst country on the planet, except everywhere else.
