Investment Markets Overview – w/e 2 September 2011

Due to travel commitments this weekend, it’s been decided to share a humorous overview received from a friend last week, albeit that IF the content is 100% correct, then it is alarming. Enjoy the read:-



NBA VS NFL



Even if you aren’t a Sports Fan this is Very Interesting!


36 have been accused of spousal abuse

7 have been arrested for fraud

19 have been accused of writing bad checks

117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

3 have done time for assault

71, I repeat 71
cannot get a credit card due to bad credit

14 have been arrested on drug-related
 charges

8 have been arrested! for shoplifting

21 currently are defendants in lawsuits,


and

84 have been arrested for drunk driving

in the last year !

Can you guess which organization this is?



Is it the NBA or NFL?

    

 

 

 

Give up yet?

Scroll down …..

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Neither, 

 

It’s the 535 members of the 

United States Congress

  

The same group of Idiots that crank out
hundreds of new laws each year
designed to keep the rest of us in line.

 

You gotta pass this one on!.

Next week is a shortened trading week for the US, due to the Labour Day holiday, but it includes the July trade balance and consumer credit number. Interest rate decisions are due from the Bank of England MPC and from the ECB, whilst Japan also provides an update on trade.

We will be back to normal next week.
