The ZigZag Café

We will be convening here at the ZigZag café, Suisse, on Thursdays for conversation and dialogue.

I invite you to stop by every Thursday for the question of the day. Your thoughts and participation are most welcome. Pull up a stool, avec un café, un thé, ou un chocolat chaud, et un croissant, and join in here on Thursday at the ZZ café.

For today:

What are your thoughts on the global economic bailouts?


Susan Barnes said...

Haven't those who are into Bible prophecy being predicting financial collapses?

If that's the case then the global economic bailouts are not going to work.

Greg said...

I don't think they'll work either. When the economic house is built on sand and the market is the sole determiner of value, we're not going in the right direction.

Sure, these kinds of bailouts will be necessary to shore up the system, but somehow it's the system itself that needs to change.

Greg and Susan,
I see it as like Roosevelts lend- lease to Britian.
Not so much permanent economics, but a country rally in "War time".
The whole world is watching the Libor rate.

I go to a Bible church Prophcy is a big thing but I don't think that way because you can't "figure God out" so easy. I like Luther saying if he knew christ would return tommorrow he would plant a tree.

Harry coe,
Yes, it was the only option. Let's plant some trees.
