‘Credit Crunch’ Timeline: BBC link

with 2 comments

Here’s a link to the BBC’s Timeline of the ‘credit crunch’ fiasco heard round the world:

Well, you know I keep thinking of the Scriptural warning that eventually “no one will be able to buy or sell”…can’t help myself.

So when financial ‘experts’ say that “liquidity” (Neptune) has “dried up” (Saturn) it occurs to me that the billions, trillions, and gazillions didn’t simply disappear – they’ve migrated en masse into shadowy offshore and Swiss accounts, y’know what I mean?

Well, the world has traded seashells and pelts before so I suppose we can do it again. But somehow I think the self-imagined ‘masters of the universe’ have something more 1984-esque in mind, don’t you?

Here’s the direct link to the BBC site’s Timeline:
