The 45 million Americans receiving food stamps are over joyed to hear this. Soon they will be able to open businesses as food push cart vendors and braiding hair.

I take it this is sarcasm, but what's your point?

No Baltic Dry Index? Dr Perry used to love that posting that index when it was going up, telling us good times were just around the corner and there was light at the end of the tunnel. Seems to me it's been going down lately. Move along, nothing to see here.

Some recovery!

One of the indexes that's rising rather rapidly is the Misery Index...

Thank you Barry!
