    How can you mention "the declining value of the U.S. $ in relation to other currencies" and then say "Bush & Co. have nothing to do with it"? Who else do you think devalued the dollar? His administration's taken it from $1.40 to $2.05 against the pound, which means you now have to earn $14,600 to buy what used to only cost $10,000 if you're talking imported goods. Have average earnings gone up that much during the Bush years?

    Which President kept saying "It's the economy, stupid"?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I am not a Bush & Co. fan, Spot, but there are economic factors that come into play irrespective of who is president. Bush and company just happen to be at the helm at this point. The Home Loan Debacle and massive home foreclosures is an example. The ripple effect of these home foreclosures will continue to clobber our economy for months to come, perhaps years.

    Sorry Lon, but if you destabalise the major oil producing region by starting a war there and destabalise the major world ecconomy by spending way more than the country's earning then you have to be held accountable for the result.

    Step forward Mr G. W. Bush and claim your reward.

    Who regulates your financial institutions-or rather decides how it is regulated?

    There are a host of Federal Agencies as well as State Regulatory Bodies that prescribe the do's and don'ts of how everything from Credit Unions, Insurance Companies, Stock Brokerage Companies, Finance Companies, Mortgage Companies, & Banks operate. For example, some insurance companies are allowed to operate in some states and not in others.The U.S. Stock Market is overseen by the SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission). Banking by the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation). Credit Unions by the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration). Then, there are the non Federal organizations for each of the above that are suppose to keep a reign on individuals and organizations that abuse the laws, they listen to grievances, impose penalties and fines, arrange arbitration. Needless to say, changes are not quickly made and no one person is responsible for what happens day to day.

    Also apparently the oil brokers are drunk.



    GLAD TO GET LAGER BEER.; SOME OIL BROKERS WHO FORMERLY DRANK CHAMPAGNE.

    "Yes," said a Beaver-street oil dealer as he tilted back in his office chair, "the good old days of oil speculation are over; the days when the market would dump 20 and 30 cents a barrel either way in as many minutes, I fear, are past and gone never to return," and the petroleum diplomat laid a leg over a corner of his desk and sighed.

    OK, after some conversion, I've worked out that here in Aus we're paying up to $1.50 per litre which works out to be about US$5.30 per gallon. (I think)

    That sucks!!!
