Bernie Sucher: broken world

Drama queen and head of Merrill Lynch's Moscow operations, Bernie Sucher, says in a Gillian Tett article today: 'Our world is broken - and I honestly don’t know what is going to replace it.'

Oh please, come on. Enough with the doom-mongering already.

Our world is going through changes. It was always going to be this way. How can we move from old-school capitalism to the new mystical capitalism without such upheaval? There is a way. There is a will. Maybe we should abandon the cities, and live in the desert - the desert we have all been dreaming of, the desert in our heads. Maybe we should set fire to all the money, and start again. And just a thought: maybe we should be grateful that the gods have not turned their backs on us, eh?

O my children, look at Big Herb's face in your next peyote vision. There is always something to be happy about.
