    Totally off topic, but I’m sitting here watching the market completely give back all of its gains for the day in a very short period of time.

    Personally, I think that some market reforms would be very beneficial in bringing some peace to Iraq.

    I was posting from a theoretical dimension. MU-HAH HAH!

    Hmmm…. Hong Kong #1 in enforcing contracts. I suppose. Dishonorably break a deal, you get killed. I guess that gets you #1 in that category.

    Barry – weigh cool. Glad you posted it. Says a lot about how the world works and how we’d like it to work. In case anybody’s interested the World Bank’s done a very nice piece of work on intangibles and national performance – intangs being peace, security, property, rule of law, etc. etc. You know, all those neat things we take for granted and a lot of the world is just discovering:

    So what kind of healthcare systems do Singapore and New Zealand have (in the latter case, I mean for people, not sheep)?

    Affordable and excellent. Just moved to Singapore from CA, and as part of the employment paperwork was required to get a health checkup, HIV test and a chest X ray. Total cost? Singapore $50. Walk in to a clinic nearby, referred to the Xray place, again just walk in and minor wait. I have never felt so human in my life with the customer experience and friendliness throughout.
