    And So It Came To Pass

    I just found a story I wrote on 21st september 2009. In it I said I found the whole Keynesian approach to alleviating the recession as a misguided attempt to buy our way out of trouble. Increasing debt and thinking the markets would respond as if they didn't know that the...

    A More Recent Interest.

    It has a lot to do with mass psychology.... I'm finding it to be very predictable ... and not as complicated as I once thought it was... There is also a very real inluence that the government and fianancial institutions have on it.
