Corona

this is not a cure but it will lower the number of bed-days that hospitals need to provide. Every bit helps. I agree with you that we were slow to react and I am chagrined that the two people whom I knew best who died from corona virus were both foreigners who had chosen to live in New York, Henri Gueron who was French by birth and Colin Fergus, a neighbor of ours who was born British. We let them down as a country by being slow to get people to try social distancing.

Fintech Cyber Attacks
6 months ago

yes but in fact it is a pain in the butt when your brokerage account locks you out because you are visiting relatives in Britain even though you know your ID and password--just as a precaution of course. so you have to phone long distance on your sister-in-law's phone to clear it up and that makes you a bad guest. this is based on my experience. most cyber security interventions are stupid.

Self-Impeachment?
10 months ago

The 1968 riots at Columbia University were allowed to continue until the students had fallen out among themselves over violence. I guess a campus is more obviously a place to support free speech than Wall Street but both of them need to be criticized from time to time for their own good. Columbia U is in Manhattan.

Internet Outage: No Blog Today
Today Charterror restored my phone line and this took down my internet. So my regular Friday blog post will appear on Monday. Meanwhile, it has been a messy day after China hit the world with bad news,
Our 2020 Outlook And The Coronavirus
Our 2020 outlook and that of lots of other pundits failed to spot a great unknown risk to world economies, another virus outbreak in China.
Plague
I accurately predicted the market selloff from the new highly contagious Chinese corona virus. It is not much fun being proven right in this fashion.
Finns
Finnish shares are the most disappointing in the world, perhaps because the country's very name breathes negativism, "finish". That was true of both our shares from Helsinki today.
Risks Of Medication
Thanks to everyone who wrote or prayed for my husband after my emergency this morning. Also news on Boris Johnson, President Trump and Ross Perot.
Czar Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin
Today's Financial Times had an amazing interview with Vladimir Putin in which he decided that classical liberalism was “obsolete” and no longer needed.
