    That's nice news for bottom-feeders, but it doesn't change anything longer-term. ALU is still in big trouble and need to reduce their debt substantially. It's costly to fund layoffs, but it's either that or close down the entire corporation. ALU has between 75k and 80k employees and need to lay off a lot more than 5k of them...and they need to do it NOW!

    EU and US print more fiat money to inflate assets while paying 0% on savings and 2% on national debt. Here we go again.
