    Sometimes you can win just by being the best looking turd in the bowl.

    When I look around, you have......

    EU: Still hasn't recapped their banks. High unemployment and a large welfare class. Not to mention a fragmented union that is showing significant signs of collapse, and in all likelihood is based on a political model that cannot succeed (based on human nature as we know it).

    Japan: Demographic nightmare scenario. Limited natural resources. All at a time when their government has basically said they will print as much as it takes to create inflation. We all know how this ends.

    China: Do you really trust central planners to create a robust economy? I don't.

    The US may win simply by being less ugly than their competitors.
  3. We suck less!

    Not a great strategy but the unfortunate truth.

    in any case once the european turd falls out of the bowl the market will destroy the US turd.

    It's all over now. The world is coming to an end. I'm going out in the garden and eat worms.
  6. actually, worms esp. ants are HUGELY healthy for men.
    its what gorillas eat and thats why they are so strong.

    anyway, the global situation is Strongly bullish for USA.
    Amazon, Apple, Monsanto are all very successful companies.

    american people at least work, create, innovate, trade, take risks.
    europe is a huge welfare state.
