"Stuck in history," is how Jim O'Neill describes typical equity benchmarks that continue to place most of their weight on the growth-challenged G7. "The neutral position for the BRIC countries ... needs to be raised significantly," says the man who coined the acronym. His favorite BRIC: Russia, which replaces Brazil.

    Putting your hard earned money into Russian assets is just as foolish as those who sought jobs in USSR in 1931.

    Surely you jest sir!


    Don't call me Shirley.


    Hat tip the comedic brilliance of Leslie Nielsen.


    ....Now as for Mr. O'Neill, not so much. Talking your "Book" much Jim? Get real man, we are on the precipice of a global depression. Watch the dollar catch a serious bid here. No matter how things break, no matter which hell hole of a country you might find yourself in, everyone wants the U.S. Dollar. Black markets all over the planet work with the greenback at the top of the heap. Any noise from the like's of Mr.O'Neill should be highly suspect!


    May God bless this wonderful little experiment in freedom we call America
