Reassuring?


This NYT image amused me as it was paired with this headline: At U.N., Bush Reassures Leaders on Economy
Too little, too late, buddy.
Thanks for spending all that dough in Iraq and making us pay doubly for it.

This is such a great quote from the article: Amen, bro.
President Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva of Brazil... seemed to criticize the American bailout proposal, saying: “The great Brazilian economist Celso Furtado said we must not allow speculators’ profits always to be privatized, while their losses are invariably socialized. We must not allow the burden of the boundless greed of a few to be shouldered by all. The economy is too serious an undertaking to be left in the hands of speculators. Ethics must also apply to the economy.”

Fantastic quote from the Brazilian president.

Unfortunately, if the banks were left to crumble further, we would be in worse shape (unbelievably).

If history teaches us anything, I hope we learn from this.
