Global capitalism, anchored firmly and nourished in the USA, is certainly experiencing very turbulent times now. Even so, it should be remembered that when the elephant gets a cold, the mice collapse with pneumonia. The devastation of the numerous satellite ecomonies, which pay tribute to America in the way of cheap labor and inexpensive goods and resources, will be infinitely worse than what happens here in the United States. Wealth and poverty are merely relative -- when others get poorer, we become richer!

On another note: The first phase of polling for assembly constituencies in Chhattisgarh has just begun. The outcome of this election, and the resulting state government, is crucial. My own view is that Dr. Binayak Sen is a political prisoner and his incarceration has nothing to do with law or due process.
