Investment and other financial matters

Re: Why global warming causes violent hurricanes

Speaking of "below normal" hurricane activity, I recall how Quickly the

2 major? hurricanes,, to hit the Southern US,, how Quickly they Faded

when they came ashore! This past year in September. {  or possibly late

August for 1st  hurricane }

The projected Intensity and the projected Paths  of the 2 hurricanes in

question,, Weakened far more Rapidly than predicted. I can never recall

seeing anything like this.

Yes please, can we have the same for Lawyers and Politicians, please?

Don’t worry about Doctors or Engineers, it has been the case for
centuries already.

More about Professor Flim Flam:

He once said that "most climate skeptics were men over 65".

He was interviewed on 891 Adelaide by Ian Henschke in February. Three
times he was asked "Are you a climate scientist?" and three times Tim
Flannery evaded the question.

He has a doctorate in Palaeontology.

Nowadays, Professor Flim Flam is now a big supporter of CSG and he’s
saying that *opposition* to CSG could lead to "dislocation across
Australia".

NOT A WORD ABOUT THE POTENTIAL DISASTER FOR THE IRREPLACEABLE GROUND
WATER RESOURCES.

It is almost impossible calculate the damage this guy has done to our
country.

Never never never let Labor(sic) manage your money

Scroll down to Table 1: 2007 Unit Labor cost

http://www.creditwritedowns.com/2009/02/do-brics-and-germans-eat-pigs…

Summary:

Germany:  98

Greece:  114

Italy:   121

Spain:   123

What this means for you socialist morons, is that Greek labour is 16%
*less* productive that German labour, Italian labour is 23% *less*
productive and Spanish labour is 25% less productive.

Ten years ago, the architects of the EUR *forgot* to include unit labour
costs in their Euro basket formula – the result is that the productive
folks now have to bail out the socialist couch potatoes. And for ten
years, the socialist thieves actually pulled it off.

It’s touch more complex than that, taxpayers being guarantors not
assetholders, but in essence, when the tide goes out – that’s what it
amounts to – socialist couch potatoes living off people who work smarter
and harder – up to 25% smarter!

Let Wayne Swan continue with his Keynesian pump priming and we’ll be in
the same boat – except with one difference, there ain’t no-one gonna
bail us out, without taking over that is. $200b of gubbermint debt in
the midst of a resources boom is absolutely, unbelievably *stupid*. What
will happen when the boom ends? Will we eat the NBN?

Speaking of which, if the NBN were the whole economy, this would be the
productivity:

Summary:

Original tender:     100 ($8.7b)

Affordable alliance: <50 ($4b)

Conroy’s NBN:        494 ($43b)

Productivity is the basis of wealth. Greece’s woes are what happens when
you stuff it up.

What do you say, Paul Keating? Be honest please.
