    Euro: the gift that keeps on giving.

    Long time ago, before the Euro blow up as it has now, I said here, and this is a direct quote, that, "Europeans will end up paying through the nose for the Euro."

    Euro revisited

    When the financial crisis hit the US, as some here were singing the virtues of Europe and its economy over the US, I stated that Europe will end up paying through the nose for Euro. I did not know that it would be so soon. It will be much, much worse for Europe than it is today, before it is...

    Super golden age for oil is over

    We went through a period of super golden age for oil in terms of its price. I think it is over. This is for two reasons. First, massive amounts of supply is coming on. This is due to the sustained high price of oil for since 2006 motivating new exploration and facilitating new technology...

    Hillary Clinton most popular national political figure: new poll

    Saw this on yahoo and thought I post and comment on it. Count me among the 1/3 who think that Clinton would have been a better President.

    Beyond the elections in the US

    Democrats lost their super majority and then some, Obama may very well be out the door in two years, and so on, but what really matters is that US has some major structural problems that the later it addresses the poorer it will become relative to the world. It is because of such structural...

    Worst World Cup so far

    Don't you think? Between the retarded Vuvuzelas, ridiculous ball, bad play, 0-0 and 1-1s, a host that is not prepared, does not know football, and is on the other side of the world for just about everyone, this has been the worst World Cup yet, thus far. The on bright spot has been fantastic...

    pieces of the puzzle

    of what may have been going on behind the scene in this second coup. I think the reports of Khamenei having a terminal illness is likely true. If you listen carefully to all that has been said and the various actions it adds up. Khamenei himself said that he is a frail and a passing man...

    Listen: Still doubt about Sepah coup?

    Listen: This would be the second coup by the way. The first election was also fraudulent. It is just that this one is more obvious and is thus has to be against a wider group of people.

    Sepah is still the number one enemy of all Iranians. It is not the Mullahs, it is not Rafsanjani, it is not the Arabs, it is not Israel, it is not the US, etc, ..., it is Sepah. Until such time that Iranians realize this fact and unite together against the number 1 enemy they will not be able...
