Very big oops

One big problem is that the US has spawned several types of attitudes that do not bode well for itself or humanity. One operative question would deal with why which will be, in part, related to truth engineering. For starters, lets just keep adding to the list.
  • In the December, 2008 Atlantic, James Fallows interviews a Chinese banker who worked here in the US after college. The article is titled "Be Nice to the Countries That Lend You Money." Gao Xiqing, the banker, has it right about derivatives using the example of a mirror. And, to think that the best-and-brightest here have played a type of shell game thinking that the rest of the world consists of a bunch of idiots. Needless to say, Gao suggests that stopping this gaming would hurt, especially CBOE.
  • The December 5, 2008 WSJ has an article about Japan's use of 'temp' workers which is something that they learned from us ("Japan's Recession Hits 'Temps'"). There is a lost generation, essentially, who never got any economic traction.
