Leaders Flock To Davos To Discuss Economic Crisis

Mon Jan 26, 2009 6:34 pm

While this year's meeting illustrates a shift in the balance of power toward governments, political leaders in Davos are likely to get a reminder that the crisis also threatens their own positions after recent civil unrest in several countries.

I read about Merrill Lynch officials buying $8,000 dollar trash bins and Citigroup buying a brand new $49 millon jet. Those companies exist today because of regular people's money.

I really do not understand how EU and US governments, and the people of the EU and US, allow such insults to their intelligence and outright finger up their collective ---- .

Quoting Derico (Reply 2):
Citigroup buying a brand new $49 millon jet.

They have apparently cancelled the purchase of that private jet.
I hope this is true.

Putin made some interesting statements at Davos today. His speech and a subsequent Q&A session are posted on the RussiaToday channel on YouTube. The speech is about a half hour long and the Q&A session is about fifteen minutes.
