So what do I have to say about the financial nonsense going on at the moment behind closed doors, and the violent nonsense going on outdoors?… I’ll just let someone else say it for me:

“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.” – Bertrand Russell

If you’re angry enough, buy this book:
Globalization and Its Discontents

By the way, welcome to the IMF nightmare. Excuse me while I say “I told you so” yet again (yes, I know it’s irritating, but I won’t apologise). Oh, here’s a thought I had 4 years ago which, depressingly, is relevant again:

“Modern society is not something that happens to us, we all created it, we are all its shepherds, we are all responsible for it, and we will all be held accountable for it by our children” – Me, 2006

…there’s no such thing as a free lunch…
