Anyone know what the outcome was in the end? Jim Glass July 21, 2011 at 9:50 am Thanks for the kind words Tim. But I am? I didn’t think so! Scott Sumner asked me to post some graphs of data I’d mentioned to him, and disinterring my old blog for a post was the simplest way to do it. One-time thing was the intent. But now you’re making me feel obligated. So maybe …. 🙂 As to the “$134 billion in bearer bonds”, that story disappeared *amazingly* from sight. My bet is it was just a scam … but it really looks like somebody wanted that story buried deep and succeeded in planting it 12 feet under. I mean, even if it was a total scam, wouldn’t “$134 billion of bearer bonds in a false bottom suitcase” be a story that would reported everywhere just for the off-beat entertainment value of it? “You’ve heard of scams, well how about a *$134 billion* scam…” Why bury news of a scam? Who could possibly be scammed for even a small percentage of $134 billion? … Very bizarre. Hey, maybe I’ve got something to get back blogging about… 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
