Shall we...?

Was up all night doing my freelancing when me far away brother from the Bay area alerted me that the Dow fell 500 points. So I quickly switched on the telly where everything went berserk in CNBC and CNN. Somehow BBC and Al Jazeera seemed not to care bout this. Well Al Jazeera had a very probable speculation that Iran is gonna get kicked in da butt very soon. So was thinking, if the markets continue to fall today, and then if the China bubble bursts very soon, and Iran gets attacked sending the gas prices to Pluto...shall we...maybe we should stock up on food and stuff?!

I will never get this, how does a market, floating in the virtual world that doesn't represent the actually value of a company or a product can determine the fate of the world? HOW!?

Market represents the fluidity/liquidity of money involved in transaction. That money isn't deciding factor of a country's economoy definitely. It's just an indicator and any fall will only affect those people who are related directly with stock markets

Industry or country wont suffer a setback really, they may suffer later to get necessary investments from capital markets

The virtual thing works just as 'currency' works. No value at all; just a piece of paper.

Waiting for more of Ghost Economics 101! :D

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
