Ten years ago, an economic crisis in one developing country could set off a chain reaction among investors around the world. And once investors suffered sharp losses in one place -- for example, Thailand, South Korea or Indonesia -- they began rolling back everywhere. This time around, the scenario is playing out differently. Although the financial markets crisis that began last year has not yet reached the point where investors are pulling out of developing markets, money continues to flow freely in the opposite direction as the world's financial giants tap into government funds from former Third World countries.

Interesting article, the author it seems to me is suggesting to other countries to end their financial bail out of the U.S.

It makes me wonder two things:

- why these countries don't take this chance and let the U.S. Implodes much like the Soviet Union did?

- what would happen if these countries do in fact stop sending money to bail U.S. corporations?

I have to quote a very wise man here if you don't mind

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bull@#$% three ring circus sideshow of

Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna watch it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.

I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it all come down.
suck it down.
flush it down.

Maynard of tool .
I think says it best .
Cleaned up the language best i could .
