Soros: Global Financial System In ‘Self-Reinforcing Process Of DISINTEGRATION’

Via: Huffington Post

Billionaire investor George Soros says that the global financial system is on the brink of collapse.

Developed countries are falling into a “deflationary debt trap,” in which consumer spending falls, products become more expensive, tax revenues drop, and sovereign debt grows, Soros said last week, according to the Wall Street Journal. As a result, he said, the global financial system is in a “self-reinforcing process of disintegration.”

“The consequences could be quite disastrous,” Soros, who was born in Hungary, said at the tenth anniversary of the International Senior Lawyers Project.

Soros was right about President Bush, and unfortunately, he’s right about this.

“Quote of the Day”

“This is the height of unfairness.  It is wrong that in the United States of America, a teacher or a nurse or a construction worker who earns $50,000 should pay a higher tax rate than somebody pulling in $50 million.  It is wrong for Warren Buffett’s secretary to pay a higher tax rate than Warren Buffett.  And he agrees with me.  So do most Americans – Democrats, Independents, and Republicans.  And I know that many of our wealthiest citizens would agree to contribute a little more if it meant reducing the deficit and strengthening the economy that made their success possible.    

This isn’t about class warfare.  This is about the nation’s welfare.  It’s about making choices that benefit not just the people who’ve done fantastically well over the last few decades, but that benefits the middle class, and those fighting to get to the middle class, and the economy as a whole.”

‘Peanuts’; however in this case, ‘Pistachios’.

Peanuts is a syndicated daily and Sunday American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, continuing in reruns afterward.

The strip is considered to be one of the most popular and influential in the history of the medium, with 17,897 strips published in all, making it “arguably the longest story ever told by one human being”, according to Professor Robert Thompson of Syracuse University.

At its peak, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of 355 million in 75 countries, and was translated into 21 languages.

It helped to cement the four-panel gag strip as the standard in the United States, and together with its merchandise earned Schulz more than $1 billion.
