and the Bloomberg eye candy is simpering with about 3 inches of make up on and a hair do that looks like it would withstand a hurricane, not to mention the intensingly irritating whining voice. Don't think financial acumen was high up on the presenter selection criteria!

Finally, FINALLY they drag the Bloomberg eye candy on just before we all put a gun to our heads and end it all.


Yup.
Should we do a link from this post to Bitter Lemons?

I remember in the 2008 crash being comforted by the cherry lipped, bouffanted hair Bloomberg eye candy. I’m certain that one even had cheekbones the shape of the market decline - sharp and southerly!

Strange they don’t apply the same criteria to male presenters or guests!

Through the last few years we have had low energy input prices in the world economy. Gail Tverberg has posted a pretty bearish view of the next few years based on the oil situation balancing out, lowering affordability of goods and services.

Not saying she is right, especially about the timing, but she has some good points.

[quote="1nv35t] "Those currently near or recently having entered retirement will look back in amazement at how once they felt so rich, to only have seen their lifetime savings lost over such a short period of time leaving them in the most darkest of late life care/lifestyle and a younger generation that simply could not care less (and even welcome such pain being endured by their elders).[/quote]

Where do you reckon is good to emigrate to, with reasonable healthcare costs for your twilight years?

As an alternative, are there still any channels open for staying in the UK and legally 'emigrating' your income-yielding assets to a sunnier tax jurisdiction?

I recall the much missed Berteee talking about Thailand.

The Thailand elite residence program offers applicants the right to live in the country for up to 20 years along with access to privileged services and VIP benefits. To receive the Thailand elite residence visa, foreigners must join Thailand elite, an exclusive program offered by Thailand privileged card company limited. (TPC)

Regarding the top package, it goes on to say:

Elite Ultimate Privilige

Elite Ultimate Privilege is a twenty year residence visa for a once off fee of approximately $60,000 plus an annual fee of approximately $600. This program includes exclusive VIP express airport services and lounge access, unlimited short haul airport transfers for international flights, government concierge services, and hospitality services for golf, spa treatments and an annual health check.


Several other packages are available as are several other Investment Visa schemes thoughout the world.

This has gone way off topic in the last few posts, and that discussion would be better carried on in Polite Discussions. If I can, I am transferring copies of the posts there.
