Maierhofer: Yes, it is. More recently, investing has become more like navigating a stick shift through a crowded city with one-way streets. A multidecade bubble has been punctured — what we've seen thus far is only the beginning. A balloon that has been punctured does not deflate in an orderly way.
Japan's fate serves as our window into the future. The Nikkei topped at nearly 40,000 in 1989. Dozens of stimulus packages and bailouts did not help the economy. The Nikkei traded below 8,000 just a few months ago — that's an 80% drop. How do you think buy-and-hold investors did?

As we see later, in his blog, it is not a time for the elite of our bureaucracy o have a month with the wife and he children in a five tsars hotel in Peking or Paris, or to spending money o go to Busch Garden or Disney world for a week, it is a time for everybody to watched what would happen in our Caribbeans small and poor countries with "landing behavior for everybody", no only for the Indians of the tribe not member of privileged families.
It is a very serious warning or we can face social and political problems in the next future if we take in account that the small Sarasota County, even in " a very relative" economy crisis, have a lot of more resource and the latest technologist of every kind and sources that all the Caribbeans island of Cuba,The Mayor of Antilles.
We faced more problem, protectionism from rich countries, food price, energy price, flu pandemic and the climatic change rigth now in the Caribbeans from Puerto Rico-Cuba to Texas before the hurricanes season. We still talk about with more reference and then you weak up, disconnected the automatic pilot and take control of the plane to landing in the real country that you are, not in that country in your dreams... so easy to be in the midled of the storm like a paper boat.
If the Caribbeans leadership and intellectual elites want to know what would happens in our small countries in he close next future as the LPK leader Ellie Domota what happen recently in Martinique, Guadaloupe and Reunion in better condition that we are facing rigth now... ask the "BBC"

1. Protectionism Spreads Globally Via Subsidies And Health Rules
5/18/2009: Global protectionism is on the upswing, but it hasn't reached the point of derailing an expected economic recovery. Yet. Some moves by the Obama administration — such as auto industry subsidies a...
"Protectionism will intensify in covert ways, says Elizabeth Stephens, head of risk analysis at London-based insurance broker Jardine Lloyd Thompson.
"Protectionism takes many forms," she said. "It's not just tariffs and imports and exports. It's about bailouts and nationalizations, subsidies and other things."
Few governments these days practice blatant protectionism, says Yasheng Huang, an associate professor at MIT's Sloan School of Management.
Aside from old-style protectionism such as raising import tariffs, countries are using subsidies, licensing requirements, health and safety regulations and anti-dumping investigations to support domestic in dustries, says Serhan Cevik, an analyst at Nomura.
Europe has opened several anti-dumping cases against Chinese in dustries, including candle makers.
In 2008, new anti-dumping investigations rose 31% from a year earlier, the WTO says.
"At this stage, protectionism is a backlash to, not a cause of, the decline in international trade flow," said Nomura's Cevik.

They are so highest for small people like us facing worst situation ten or twenty time more than any of the poorest in a rich country that always, almost ever, has a "lifesaver" from the Titanic first class.
Food crisis hits developing world farms .BBC NWS:
"Food drop the price, but still there are a crisis for people with non professional jobs or living in DEVELOPING COUNTRIES like we are in the caribbean sea."
