  • BP's Eventual Bankruptcy Is Certain [View article]
    Why didn’t anyone pay for Chernobyl, because it was communist USSR which called the shots then and decided to ignore it.

    Why didn’t Union Carbide/ Dow Chemicals pay for killing 11,000 people– because India then was a starving brown skin filled country with snake charmers where only hippies ever came to when it happened.

    Why will BP pay for its mistake, for (as what you write) killing a couple of thousand big birds – because the United States of America is neither a Communist USSR nor is it a Early 80s India

    If you’re an IT professional as your profile says, I ‘d rather recommend you stick to your profession before some Indian takes away your day job and you end up spending all day just writing comments.

  • Bahrain – Chugging along not-so-quietly  [View instapost]
    I would agree with you that making a statement of 'no oil in bahrain' is wrong. Thank you, I stand corrected, there's just about enough oil for the 'big daddies' to drive their hummers/RRs around the island: for the next 15 years :)

    However the core of what I was conveying in the blackhole paragraph remains unchanged. Bahrain currently has an economy which is highly skewed towards Financial Services, I'll try and get you the latest numbers, but here's what i could source for now - oil and gas contributes 13.1% of GDP (these numbers are of 07-08, at the peak of oil prices), manufacturing contributes 12.4% of GDP and Financial services contribued about 24.2% of GDP.
