Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

can we distinguish between commodities and equities, when we discuss domestic investment strategies? i'd say they represent different types of "demand", each starving consumers in ways consumers can't control.

there is no linkage between commodity and equity in fiscal policy anymore, is there?

commodity market making, processing, and distribution are centralized events far removed from consumers. since the collapse at bretton woods, paper and central bank lending rates (to purchase derivatives) dominate measures of national "wealth". G(x) nations meet to coordinate monetary policy -- military investments.

is it too fantastic to admit that the free market is or always has been an multinational command-economy? that the same planning disaters produced by the soviets and maoists are thinly veiled by 24/7 info and cryptic commentaries?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
