@snoots nothing like diatribalism
Yes, much ‘truthiness’ and rustic charm round here. Like hiking the alps. with a map of the Pyrenees
But the story Kahneman recalls when asked about the economic models at the root of the current financial crisis is actually taken from history, not an experiment. It concerns a group of Swiss soldiers who set out on a long navigation exercise in the Alps. The weather was severe and they got lost. After several days, with their desperation mounting, one of the men suddenly realized he had a map of the region.
They followed the map and managed to reach a town. When they returned to base and their commanding officer asked how they had made their way back, they replied, “We suddenly found a map.” The officer looked at the map and said, “You found a map, all right, but it’s not of the Alps, it’s of the Pyrenees.”
Apologies if repost…
Interesting how she/he says the western-hyped twitter activism may have caused the real Irainian protestors blowback.
”The Iranian Twitter Revolution meme is thoroughly debunked in Cloud Culture , a new study examining the impact of social media on the way we live our lives. It reports that a third of Iranians have internet access and the number of Twitter users in the country during last June’s unrest amounted to just 0.082 per cent of the population. “It’s clear that its influence in co-ordinating a serious challenge to a powerfully entrenched regime was wildly overstated,” the report notes. — The idea that Iran was undergoing a Twitter Revolution incorrectly characterised and even trivialised what happened last summer, says Parvin Ardalan, a leading Iranian women’s rights activist who attended the protests. “It was much deeper and wider than that. It involved people from every level of society,” she argues, adding that the focus on Twitter, Facebook and other social media helped bolster the Iranian regime’s claims that the protests were part of a western conspiracy to destabilise the country.’
The revolution was not tweeted

The Oil Card
Global Economic Warfare in the 21st Century
By James R. Norman
Challenging the conventional wisdom behind oil pricing, this compact book sheds an entirely new light on the workings of “free” commodity markets and oil industry supply and demand “fundamentals.” Its purpose is to look at the use of oil as an economic weapon.
The book assembles a now well-documented chronology of how the US and its allies, including Saudi Arabia, pushed down oil prices dramatically in the 1980s, and kept them low for a decade. It was a concerted and stunningly successful effort to break the former Soviet Union by depriving it of desperately needed hard-currency income.
It then raises the question whether those same price-control levers have lately been pushed in the opposite direction to rein in another target: the oil-short Peoples Republic of China. Contrary to popular perceptions, media commentary and official explanations, the book methodically lays out the geopolitical logic and the market mechanisms behind the stunning 12-fold run-up of oil prices from 1998 to mid-2008. It also offers an explanation for the sudden price drop from almost $150/barrel to under $100 as Russia again flexed its muscle by invading Georgia.

@Adam C – thanks for that link re: The Revolution Was Not Tweeted; I still have all sorts of video screen capture files I haven’t yet had a chance to post yet, but it was VERY clear that the Twitter revolution was totally fabricated and yes it is sad that real dissent was then lost and de-legitimized in the process

I WANT TO INTERVIEW ON MY SHOW!
“The main lure is advisory work for the Polish government, which plans to sell stakes this year in its energy, insurance, chemical and phone companies to raise $10 billion to finance the widening budget deficit. The economy, the only one in the European Union to avoid a recession, and the Warsaw Stock Exchange, where the total value of listed companies has tripled since 2003, are also attractive, bankers said.”

WikiLeaks Statement on Recent Events
yes i told you guys poland would come into play big time a month ago. there next to be raped.
@ronron – It is one of those “false confirmation” stories. The ABCnyheter.no site is basically reposting Julian Assange’s letter in Norwegian. Julian Assange says in his letter that he was followed and photographed in his stay at Iceland last week by both Icelandic police and US department of state and the news site is just repeating what he has written in the e-mail to them, and that is not a confirmation of his story.
This is something of a Jibber Jabber piece
but it is linked to Eu (as in Europium) and the Euro

@border Collie – As we used to say in Saudi: “Hey did you hear the news, Saudi Arabia just declared war on Iran and the Koreans got the contract!”
Never mind. The Koreans will be busy fighting their own war soon. Maybe KBR will get the contract this time…

Wow, IMF rejects gold purchasers
In an exclusive report, Kitco has just released yet another stunner in the world of precious metals. It turns out that Eric Sprott has attempted to purchase gold from the IMF, according to information provided to Kitco by Frank Holmes, CEO of US Global Investors. “I just spoke with Eric Sprott, who bid to buy [the IMF’s remaining gold on the block] and they refuse to sell it.” As Kitco points out, “the IMF might be holding out for a bigger buyer or a central bank or for higher prices. But Holmes argues the IMF’s rejection of Sprott’s bid means markets are being manipulated.”

Battleship that is..
Check out the second video on the RHS …
IMF refused to sell the 190 tons to Sprott Asset Management !
@WL .. just saw your post .. Thx
I wonder if those dogs eat politicians and bankers, too!
There is definitely a higher meaning there…foreshadowing
That Sprott story is huge, they don’t want gold out of their control, Why?
@WL … Why ?
I guess they have to find it first !
Actually, I think they’d just prefer to “write a storage note” .. and they guess ( probably quite rightly ) that Sprott wants physical delivery !
Yes, Sprott has called their bluff…
hahaha. good. they got no gold. figured that. let the fun begin. 😉

Passengers flying off on a Caribbean holiday were stunned when they spotted this massive volcanic eruption, which sent a huge plume of ash into the sky. The explosion of the Soufriere Hills volcano, on the island of Montserrat, sent ash bellowing up to 40,000ft into the sky in February. The stunning spectacle was spotted by the pilot of a plane travelling to the island of St Lucia. He immediately alerted his passengers who dashed to the

Israel is playing with fire. If ever USA gets mad, or desintegrates, and dumps Israel, this country will implode. What’s the problem with this right wing extremist, this “Nathan-Yahoo” ? He doesn’t get it.
Israel is a small fragment of the empire. If ever USA implodes, Israel will have to fend for itself and it will be dramatic indeed for the israeli people. Stupid right wing fascist fron the Likoud. He doesn’t still gets it. They really don’t understand in Israel that their ally, the US Empire is on fire and sinking like the Titanic. There is like in Israel a total lack of political common sense.
About A&T. And guess who will be paying ? The consumers and the workers. Great unemployment creation and job destruction program !
Natural. The gold is reserved ONLY to the godamn NAZIS banksters. It’s not your gold it’s theirs. Fuckin Globalist NAZIS.
It just proves that the IMF and bankers never believed in “free” markets or democracy. These people are NAZIS. At least it’s NOW more and more clear what that godamn IMF is.

What happened to the Irish peolple ? The American culture and fast food ate their brains out. It’s happening too in Canada, Australia and New-Zealand (very very very very very advanced).
Yet again, Americans must look overseas for any real analysis and perspective on our un-American president. Here is a searing, stunning, spot-on piece on Obama and his foreign policy in the Daily Mail. Not only Israel, but France, Germany and England are getting the dump from Obamo.
