Good James Howard Kunstler interview & a great primer on the GFC

JHK has only one tune in his repertoire but he plays it damn well. Here's an interview on (a journal of the built and natural environments) where he spins it all out in fine form — lots of quotable bits including this: "We will do what reality compels us to do, not necessarily what our fantasies propose." My sentiments exactly.

My friend Mike sent me a link to a broadcast which gives a background to the current financial crisis — if it puzzles you in any way, give it a listen! It makes very clear the motivations of players at every level. Highly recommended.

Wow, that radio broadcast was very informative. It's definitely unique getting facts about what caused 2008’s mortgage crisis from the individuals who actually created it.
