No new revelation here. Rather food for thought for the "correction" camp: it's collapse that, thin leadership is portending. Just ask Uncle Sam...


What's the panic about? No shortage of looming disasters would motivate a flight to safety. Could this be were the U.S. Treasury among these? Good call Standard & Poors!
