I find it interesting that five of the countries are not sending their finance ministers due to "other" engagements (crisis management at home?).
It will also be interesting to see what happens to the markets next week when all this new debt is floated into the markets. I wonder who will be buying?

1) The U.S. is not an island. As it goes, so goes the world.
2) If you don't believe me, ask all the foreign investors who are heavy into U.S investments.
3) There are a lot of things happening behind the scenes, and a lot of hands in the cookie jar. Pinning something like this on a single person is asinine.
4) It's not over yet.

Just a stupid question......just how does the IMF intervene in a country's economy when it gets out of control, and well, what would propmt that action?

Wow, because of the dollar sinking we will have to spend our money on American made products. The foreign products will be too expensive. All those countries that outsourced to foreign lands will be at risk for price increases. Who knows were they will end up. Don't you just love the free market. Maybe some day the other world powers will stand up to the terrorists instead of taking bribes. I say buy American and bring back our jobs. What a concept.
