99% global financial analysis and opinion, 1% Y2K - but some here, I think, will find it worth a read.
Warning: It is not for the faint of heart.

Rob, thanks for the really cheering news!!!! Made my day, it did.
Note to self: "self, buy another bag of rice and 5 pounds more beans tonight!"
Now you know why your poll came out the way it did. Most of the people who spend time here have tied the world economic conditions into their reckoning of what Y2K will do to us. As Gayla noted, we won't go to the bottom overnight.......it will take time as all of these economic factors ripples through the world.
This could get really ugly.
eliminate two Xs to email me.
