    ...." the big holders of bonds are pension funds and banks."

    There are also multitudes of seniors and others on fixed incomes that have bonds both treasury and corporate as major components.

    My advice to that cohort has been to build a laddered portfolio with a duration of 5-7 years with the intent of holding to maturity and not worry about interest rate fluctuations.

    Putin & Tsipras became good buddies back in February. Mabe Putin was sizing up Greece for a loan!

    LOL!

    Re: bad tooth-

    Greece needs to keep getting "loans" ad nauseum just to maintain their newly found (euro) wealth.

    Why would you want to give up all that money if you didn't have to?

    Yeah, me too. My sock drawer has become WAAAY too crowded with mouldy moth-eaten stock certificates.

    Thanks-

    I found a number of waterous sites as a result of your suggestion. Water is quite a topic in California, especially when the film "Chinatown" was released.

    Re: Wages, inequality and inflation.

    I came across this extensive write-up in Wikipedia of all places and found the most comprehensive collection of essays, white papers, academic writings and studies you could ever want. Every position and concern raised in this insta is explored here. There is a lot of material but worth the time if you, like me want to know the whole story-

    Enjoy -

    >FPA-

    The contagion surely would become rampant if Greece is able to force the creditors to capitulate on austerity and already agreed to terms.

    The EU would have to be on some pretty wild medication to let that happen.

    Re: Water Rights-

    Don't worry folks- Not everyone is affected by such draconian rules- Just those that don't have enough political clout.

    The bottlers haven't been told to reduce production yet so all is OK.
