A message to all members of GlobalRisk community

"100% of the shots you don't take don't go in" Wayne Gretzky


Dear GlobalRisk community member,


The major economic news of the last period included the decision of the Japanese Central Bank to print even more money than their European counterparts to try to drive down the Yen. It seems that the major economies are trying to compete now as to who can create the most money. Investors were positioned for what we thought would be a double-dip recession and massive inflation, but now the mood has swung the other way. For example,  Brazil's state-controlled oil firm, Petrobras, raised $70 billion to help finance a massive expansion of Brazil's oil output – the largest share offering yet seen worldwide. Meanwhile China started to export its currency. The first client was the Malaysian central bank and very soon we will be holding banknotes with Chairman Mao as we hold now those with Uncle Sam on them.


By the way if you've got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
