For proof of how wrapped up in their own little orbits they are, read the following: While Wall Street investment banks and other financial firms make headlines for the millions paid out to certain executives, more modest bonuses go to workers from human resources […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081028/ap_on_bi_ge/financial_meltdown_35 An impatient White House is serving notice on banks receiving billions of dollars in federal help to quit hoarding the money and start making more loans.

http://biz.yahoo.com/fool/061213/116603450315.html?.v=1&printer=1 As previously mentioned in this StumbleBlog, I’m aiming to return to Europe come February or March.

The Deipnosophist: Pause celebre

http://eutrapelia.blogspot.com/2005/09/pause-celebre.html This was originally published a few months ago in the Financial Times, who in their unsurprisingly miserly way have now made it inaccessible without a credit card.
