  • Canada's job gains double estimates [View news story]
    The real unemployment picture of Canada would be much more uglier than this. The Street's news is that a lot of immigrants, or even local born folks have not been able to get any work for years. But then it is just human nature, people do not whine about it because it would show weakness and get scorn vice sympathy.

    Let's face it. The unemployment problem in Canada had been around ever since nation founding in 1867 and of late being aggravated by colonial type of industry focused only on resource extraction and little R&D and military expenditures.

    It is a de fact British Crown Colony good for tranquil retirement.

  • Obama And Lew Say This Is Serious - Are They Just Grandstanding Or Is This Time Different? [View article]
    China and tiny Hong Kong now hold about 25% of our Treasuries.

    There must be something 'strange' about the spending behavior of this now debtor nation.

    Still in deep slumber; self-hypnotized, self-mesmerized, self-congratulated, and finally now, self-immolation in force.

  • Kerry: International support growing for action against Syria [View news story]
    Is it time to stir up yet another pot when the 'other' past 'pots' are still stirring? Hey, time to pay your bills, debt ceiling is up soon. Mind your own house, Sir.

    it is just too ambitious for anyone to think he/she could solve all the problems in everywhere of the world.

  • A Bubble Continues To Form In The Stock Market [View article]
    There is really no bubble at all.

    Aside from some regional conflicts in some remote countries far from home, the U.S. is enjoying unprecedented prosperity and hegemony which is why we could afford a rebellious, mediocre actor chief executive in the oval office; so long so there are Chinese science and technology PhD candidates roaming in our empty college labs like modern-day gladiators searching for green cards. We are still saddled with a 20-year backlog of would-be immigrants from the Philippines and India.

    In short the U.S. is the least fried pig in the pan!

    And till then...

  • Another mortgage rate hike in Canada [View news story]
    A storm is coming; one could see the dark clouds gathering up north; the Canadian real estate market is well over-priced, been that way for decades, of late wooing Chinese mainland toxic dollars after the Hong Kong bucks drying up somewhat.

  • Rate worries again rout income favorites [View news story]
    The stampede is brutal.

    You get what you paid for, for whatever ye sowed so shall ye reaped. The people are only follower speculators like their peers, their so-called leaders who they the people saw speculate with gambling interest rates juxtaposition.

    It is the old saying, kids follow their parents. The market is now not about investment.

    There is no rule or limit of how fast or how much higher it could go; it is a market economy; so-called free enterprise! Only the D.C. Fools would believe that they could manipulate the economy!

  • BlackBerry going-private offer coming from Fairfax? [View news story]
    At this price it is dirt cheap, and I don't think the smartphone/smart tablet market is finished or over-crowded as such.

    Key is to isolate itself from the day-to-day market fluctuations and the media hypes and attacks. Then they need to put a real dynamic CEO to resurrecting this once fledging company. It can be done In my view.
