6/21    Don't you ever wonder about what is going on in the world?
        1. South Africa - Ya there was alittle news about how debeers is
        going private but not much else- they control a good deal of
        energy and recently Africa is coming into its own- why- rich
        people have finally realized that they can buy all the land- and
        they have. But again no one talks about it
                \_ the black man will just wake up and hack off both
                   your arms, like in neighboring rwanda
        2.http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/published/ESP_Lists/esp_udc.htm  : They
        don't have commercials about this- Everyone assumes all those
        rate increase are mandatory---- well not really.......
        3.  Australia: There economy is based a lot of raw material
        production. In 9th or 10 grade had class where we played a game
        called simpolican or something like that- a pred of civilization.
        But you actually had to produce raw materials to produce
        everything else.  So why is it that our press never talks about
        the foundation of our economy- commodity production.
        4. What about going ons in france
        5. What about changing demographics- US simply has to many
        people- if you look at like euro countries people don't work
        nearly as much- thus the need for employees is more- you can
        sustain higher employment if people lets say take off a month
        here and there.
        6. What about families- US just wasted 5 years with no family
        economics- why because everyone was working instead.
        7. I am still waiting for a good story in the news about Japan or
        the Tigers. It is like Taiwan, ah I forgot the 5 tigers and did
        a quick search and came up with http://www.theglobalist.com
        \_ A... WHAT WERE SMOKING WHEN YOU WROTE THIS?

5/16    Can anyone tell me what Greece is hoping for by rejecting austerity?
        From here it seems like the austerity is a pretty generous attempt
        to keep Greece from imploding entirely.   Are they hoping the
        Germans will put them on eternal state welfare, or what?
        Also, why would an outright default mean they must leave the Euro?
        Is it just that they won't be able to pay basic gvmt services

6/1     There is a lot of panic. Euro. Greece. Unemployment. GDP.
        VIX is up. That means one thing: BUY BUY BUY!!!
        \_ Eh, I'm not sure we're at BUY BUY BUY yet.
        \_ Eh, I'm not sure we're at BUY BUY BUY yet.  I think
           things may still go lower from here.  1280 was my target

        \_ I wish I had saved this graph that compared retail space per
           capita between Britain, Sweden and the United States.  We had
           something like 20x-30x more retail space per capita which suggests
           there are a lot more store closings coming up.

Updated on April 30, 2004 6:20 am PT The Electric Service Providers (ESPs) on this list are registered with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). California Public Utilities code Section 394, added by Senate Bill 477, requires entities that offer electrical service to residential and small commercial customers - those with loads below 20 kW - to register with the California Public Utilities Commission. Public agencies offering electrical service within their own political jurisdictions or within the service territory of a local publicly owned electric utility, are exempt from this requirement.
