      In Stockholm, the stock exchange dropped 7,1 percent, which is the worst since September 11 2001, E24.se reports. In Helsinki the situation was no better with a 8,4 percent drop.
      is that thru????ch.c may not like us knowing about his land?!!!

      In Iceland, the whole national economy now is on the verge of total collapse. The national government might now be force to take over practically the whole banking sector. However, that might be more than the little state could bear, thus putting the whole economy on the verge of bankruptcy.

      God bless Iceland, PM Geir Haarde told the nation in a crisis speech last night.

      Diplomacy is also one of your hidden talents
      Not so, not so !
      I am a good diplomat when I negotiate ! I just start telling them endlessly how HE/THEY are good to caress and stimulate their ego and pride. And then they swallow their own beliefs !
      Example ?
      No problem, here is a fable from Jean de la Fontaine,

      THE CROW AND THE FOX
      Master Crow sat on a tree, holding a cheese in his beak. Master Fox was attracted by the odor, and tried to attract him thus. “Mister Crow, good day to you. You are a handsome and good looking bird! In truth, if your song is as beautiful as your plumage, you are the Phoenix of this forest.” Hearing these words the Crow felt great joy, and to demonstrate his beautiful voice, he opened his mouth wide and let drop his prey. The Fox seized it and said: “My good sir, know that every flatterer lives at the expense of those who take him seriously. This is a lesson that is worth a cheese, no doubt.”

      The Crow, embarrassed and confused, swore, thought somewhat later, that he would never be tricked again.

      It works ALL the times…trust me !

      😉 😀

      Global FOOD Price Hikes Give 18% Boost to SÀƒ£o Paulo, Brazil, Farm Revenues
      and later…..Among the products that grew most, in terms of value, the most prominent are steel (174.8%) etc etc !!!!!

      Great to know that you mix up your foods stats with steel. Hopefully you dont add steel in your exported foods…just to add more weight and thus getting something such as beef prices that include lets say 5 % steel !

      But feel free to add 10 % steel in your beef LOCAL sales !

      The rest of the comparative stats in the article are just as clear….as your steel inclusion in your foods stats.
      STRANGE…to stay diplomat !
