@Fullcarry What’s unfortunate is that even if 1907 or 1873 panic is a model, 2008 comes on top of greatest debt bubble of all time.

@Fullcarry @CR1138 Indeed. If you look at this decade in resource deals, CN likes to start small as trial or a floater to see reactions.

Was the credit crunch simply a run of the mill 19th century style banking panic ala 1907?

The Palm Pre will not attract iPhone folks. It will pull the lower-end UP to the Pre. iPhone runs on C++ apps. The Pre runs on HTML 5!

@AriCostello CN going for basket strategy? Buy 1. Raw materials off xchanges. 2. Mines and Miners. 3 IMF bonds (SDR backdoor). 4. Oil.

@GregorMacdonald they got to float the yuan first….otherwise, the size will be so small it will be considered a novelty

Well… seems the shortening duration play didn’t work out so well. What does CN do now? re-extend? or just look for a different game?
