FROM ONE YEAR AGO: LOOK AT BOTTOM OF CHART TO FIND MOST SOLVENT COUNTRIES IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY ...

CHART OF THE DAY:
Gregory White
|September 24, 2010







Societe Generale has mapped out the world by each country's place in the global debt cycle.

The cycle starts with countries paying down debt, followed by growth with little debt, then a rapid increase in leverage, closing with the bubble bursting.

Every major developed country fits on a part of the chart.

Right now, the U.S. is starting over, paying down debt and a long way from the growth portions of the cycle. At the opposite end of the spectrum are Brazil and China, ramping up growth and increasing debt.

Might be a good graph to follow if you're someone who plays the markets by country.

KENNY BROWN AFTER MARKET FORD MUSTANG "MANGO TANGO" GT-4T HIT OF THE LAS VEGAS AUTO SHOW ...

Kenny Brown GT-4T turbocharged Ford Mustang at SEMA 2011





If you’re out and about at the 2011 SEMA Trade Show in Las Vegas today (through the 4th of November), be sure to locate the Dynapack Dyno booth to check on one serious turbo’d Ford Mustang. 
 Kenny Brown’s GT-4T will be on-hand to show you some serious “Mango Tango” pony car magic. 
 How so, you might ask? 
 Well, Kenny’s latest weapon in the arms cache is a screaming orange hued Mustang GT loaded with a complete, tuned chassis suspension package gleaned from years of street & tracking tuning and is capitalized upon by a crisply European behavior when taxed.

The crown jewel atop, or below, rather…is the Kenny Brown BiTurbo system which gives this Ford Mustang an incredible jump in base horsepower, allowing for incredible pedal response in addition to killer handling characteristics, otherwise.

There’s lots more engineered and applied to this car, so keep reading (or go see the car at SEMA, directly) to get the rest of the story in…

ROUBINI'S GLOBAL ECONOMIC OUTLOOK FOR THE NEXT 12 MONTHS ...

Professor Nouriel Roubini Tips 
50pc Chance of Another Recession – Summary of My Speech in Perth

Author: Nouriel Roubini · October 25th, 2011 ·

From Perth Now:



THE economist known as “Dr Doom” has tipped a more than 50 per cent chance of another global recession that could force the break-up of the eurozone.

Professor Nouriel Roubini spelled out for delegates at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Perth today there were potential positive and negative impacts stemming from the current global financial turbulence and uncertainty surrounding the Eurozone.


Specifically, he suggested there was a “significant probability” of a double dip recession engulfing most advanced economies around the world, stemming from unresolved issues in Europe.


“In my view, there’s a significant probability – more than 50 per cent – that over the next 12 months, there’s going to be another recession in most advanced economies,” the New York University professor said.


“If we look at the situation in the United State…

"MOTHER OF ALL BUMPER CROPS" FORCAST FOR PERU'S MANGO EXPORTERS...

November 01, 2011








Just days from their annual mango conference, Peruvian mango growers and exporters are staring down what looks to be the "Mother of all bumper crops" with an estimated 13,750,000 (4kg) cartons on the low side to a high of 17,750,000 (4kg) cartons of exportable fruit for the upcoming mango season.


This compounded by last season's horribly managed export campaign could spell eminent danger for Peru's mango industry.


Last season Peru flooded the USA market with 12,000,000 cartons. Just think of the havoc they will reap on global markets this year with almost 50% more production ?


The Piura region will start harvesting early fruit later on this month in the San Lorenzo valley, with the bulk of export harvests beginning around the 10th of December.


The Olmos / Motupe valley begins later on with The Cazma region shipping Peru's final ma…

BOEING 747 - 8 FREIGHTER BEGINS DELIVERIES ...

Cathay Takes First 747-8 Freighter

The Journal of Commerce Online - News Story



Delivery follows troubled launch for new all-cargo aircraft

Boeing delivered its first 747-8 freighter to Cathay Pacific Airways this week, making the Hong Kong-based airline the second carrier to take the aircraft and giving the aircraft manufacturer a needed boost in its troubled program.

The delivery to Cathay follows a troubled first delivery of the 747-8 last month to Cargolux, which at first refused to take the aircraft because of concerns over the plane’s promised fuel efficiency.

Those questions apparently have been resolved and Cathay has said it is satisfied with the operating characteristics of the next-generation widebody freighter.

Cathay said the plane, with its improved payload capacity and efficiency, will help solidify the carrier’s Hong Kong base as the central hub for air freight out of Asia.

But the deliveries — and Cathay has nine more of the planes on order —…

Russia: Rebuilding an Empire While It Can

October 31, 2011 | 2123 GMT









By Lauren Goodrich

U.S.-Russian relations seem to have been relatively quiet recently, as there are numerous contradictory views in Washington about the true nature of Russia’s current foreign policy

Doubts remain about the sincerity of the U.S. State Department’s so-called “reset” of relations with Russia — the term used in 2009 when U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton handed a reset button to her Russian counterpart as a symbol of a freeze on escalating tensions between Moscow and Washington. 

The concern is whether the “reset” is truly a shift in relations between the two former adversaries or simply a respite before relations deteriorate again.

The reset actually had little to do with the United States wanting Russia as a friend and ally. 

Rather, Washington wanted to create room to handle other situations — mainly Afghanistan and Iran — and ask Russia for help. (Russia is aiding in moving supplies into Afghanist…
