Inflation Rates by jimgon (4.00 / 1) #2 Sat Jun 01, 2013 at 09:57:15 AM EST
"With nominal rates already near zero, they cannot fall farther. Nobody would lend at a negative interest rate because one can do better by holding cash."

That's a perfect quote for explaining why we are where we are.  If you have negative return on investment you will sit on your cash rather than invest it. Higher inflation rates should be helpful in bursting that since sitting on cash would in itself have a negative return.  But the problem ultimately higher inflation rates collide with holders of assets denominated in cash amounts since the value of those assets will go down.  Naturally it does have an offsetting function for the debtors, but central banks listen to creditors and not debtors.

Serengeti: by ammoniacal (4.00 / 1) #3 Sat Jun 01, 2013 at 10:00:01 AM EST
According to UNESCO, the park was expanded from an initial 228,600 hectares to 1.5 million hectares in 1959. Don't know how involved those Germans were with that. I also learned that the Masai living within the newly-expanded park were relocated in 1959. I don't suppose they were very happy about that.

It was due to be expanded, but the problem was that the migration routes didn't go into the expanded area.

Working class vs chavs by Herring (4.00 / 1) #5 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 03:20:57 PM EST
Reminds me a bit of the Chris Rock routine about black people and (can we use the N word on here? OK - but I don't feel comfortable about it).

IME, lazy, selfish cunts exist in most strata of society. This is observable when cycling - although white vans are disproportionately represented in the "evil" segment this is probably because they are more likely to contain groups of blokes. Me and the boy did get hassle off a Ferrari the other day - which is new.

I've forgotten what my point was.
