  • The Wall Street Journal reports that Saudi Arabia will more than double investment in energy infrastructure and will spend $50 bln over the next five years on energy development. The oil minister also said the country had set aside its OPEC production cap and was willing to sell as much oil as possible and said it was studying long term plans to boost capacity to 15 mil barrels a day.

  • Tough loss for the O's - I'm guessing the homeplate umpire was from South Boston after calling Palmiero out at home plate.

  • What's wrong with medicine

  • South Korea will issue treasury bonds with maturities of more than 10 years in 2006 and will also increase the amount of outstanding debt to help develop Asia's second-largest debt market, the government said on Friday according to Reuters.

  • "Taking a step back I remind everyone to pay attention to financials, which generally are down on the day. This is one of the last sectors that haven't seen significant damage. I also think it is key for the market.

    Bonds are down giving back their "safety" rally, although I always think that is a joke.

    This economy is all about credit expansion and the credit providers like KRB, PVN, and COF are all down substantially on the day. Money centers are so far flat into this rally.

    I continue to sell deltas into this rally. Not overly aggressively here knowing the momentum is for right now strong, but keeping a close eye on the financials."
    (John Succo yesterday on the Buzz)

  • "Joint Committee Investigates Marijuana Use" - a local newspaper of a suburb of Toronto, describing a committee set up by the board of education and the local municipality to investigate marijuana use among high school students

  • "I actually burst out laughing when I read one of them, via the following headline on Bloomberg: "Greenspan Says China's Yuan Peg Causing Resource Misallocation."

I could not help but be struck by the irony of him supposedly being able to see that the yuan peg was causing a misallocation of capital in China -- when he professed to be unable to see the misallocation of capital happening here in America during the stock bubble, and ditto the massive misallocation of capital presently working in our housing bubble.

Of course, we now know that Greenspan appeared to have understood there was a bubble going on. He just chose not to do anything about it. So, the man who is responsible for more misallocation of capital than any human being in history wants to tell the Chinese what their business is when he refuses to attend to his own job."
