  1. Thing I don't get is, the Brexiteers must know they are on the hook for all the failures that will ensue from Brexit, nowhere to hide, no-one else to blame. Actually quite an uncomfortable position to be in; they would have been better off if the Uk stayed in the EU and they could have continued to ride the grievance gravy train with no accountability.
  2. choking our chickens? guess you are talking about a different kind of worker there...
  3. AKA Financial advisers will hate you!! one crazy old tip to turbocharge your pension investments! could this thread have a more clickbaity title...
  4. the truth is that ML / AI is massively overhyped; the majority of it is basically glorified curve fitting. Doesn't mean that there is not huge value in individual applications, but I think that people who should have know better (Deepmind) have created this massive PR bandwagon that makes disappointment inevitable.
  5. turning into a bit of a d**k measuring contest now...
  6. I'm a remainer, but this sounds like a load of b****cks. All of the cited factors were in place before the referendum. sounds like people flouncing off in a huff, in which case, too bad. I am a foreigner and there is little obvious change in the openness to other cultures etc in the areas where most of us live (i.e. London and the SE of England), as far as i can see.
  7. Sleepy Joe should concentrate on repatriating his own citizens, since it seems touch and go whether that will be possible. No one is saying they should have stayed (at least not me), but to execute in such a shambolic way just to hit the symbolic deadline of the 9/11 anniversary is pathetic. deeply unimpressive if you have ever seen an interview with him, only looks good in comparison to the orange ape.
  8. Also from today's FT: https://www.ft.com/content/d9cbe0e5-353a-44b9-bc75-a6ac61c992e8 Some interesting comments about market manipulation below the line.
  9. lol, I thought the same but hesitated to comment thinking it in slightly poor taste...
  10. because it's all gone pete ...
  11. it's the big problem with this forum: half the people here have something interesting to say and the other half are wingnuts. sometimes hard to tell upfront which group someone belongs to (also, the balance seems to have deteriorated over the years that I have been reading it)
  12. "Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau" Irving Fisher, economist, 1929
  13. mathematicians might have something to say about this...
  14. Don't really care about "-isms", but in a lot of areas allowing the price mechanism to balance supply and demand works pretty well (and in a lot of areas it doesn't, in which case the govt should step in). I just don't think that blaming the current housing mess on capitalism / free market economics makes sense, given how distorted the market is. TBH we are probably in agreement on the broad points: I am not in favour of "uber-capitalism", but rather a mix-and-match approach.
