Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was just thinking of posting a LQD on that Spengler piece . . . so utterly insane that I couldn't make heads or tails of it.  I especially loved the ending, where he concludes that a witch-hunt against bankers would be stupid and malicious and misguided.  After all, their bank stocks are down!  Oh, woe is them.

I've long noticed the total finance-centric nature of the economic and business analysis at Asia times.  While their political analysis is quite interesting and informative, their economics writers buy completely into the 'markets are all' mantra.

Well, I'm another example of the finance-centric output of 'Asia Times', and I think that 'markets are all'.

It's just that the markets I write about have nothing whatever to do with the markets Spengler is used to.

"Asia Times" had Julian Delasantellis for a welcome balance - but he passed away in 2010.

And it still hosts Henry Liu - though he has not been active recently.
