  • Superb presentation. Should be taken at heart by Mr. Obama, Bernake, c.s. Spending more money cannot resolve the world economy and its credit crunch.
    The reverse is the answer. Let Mr. Market do the job. The initial mistakes were made in 2001 under the rule of Mr. Bush and Greenspan.

  • Thank you! This show is about the relative scales of debt. Mr. Bush was only included to show his historic borrowing as part of US debt, which is transpartisan in nature. Good luck to us!

  • Great work - i like the last frame especially. I could do without the Bush reference. It puts a partisan spin on a point that is effective without it. Well done.
