First it was The Street.com with its "fear" discussion, now we have The Washington Post using terms like "a stampede by foreign investors" and "destabilize the world economy". My goodness, the doomers are everywhere. We need folks like Mr. Decker and Stephen Poole to just march right into their offices and set 'em straight, by golly. This is after all the best of all possible worlds. 8-}]
"'It is demonstrable,' said Pangloss, 'that things cannot be otherwise than as they are; for as all things have been created for some end, they must necessarily be created for the best end... and they, who assert that everything is right, do not express themselves correctly; they should say that everything is best.'" -- Voltaire, Candide
