Soros sends signal to markets

The billionaire investor George Soros has said it will be "very difficult to avoid" recessions in the US and the UK.
In an interview with BBC News, Mr Soros said he supported the US Federal Reserve's surprise interest rate cut, which bolstered global stock indexes.

"You have to rescue markets otherwise you go into a depression, as happened in the 1930s," he said.

He also said that the current market turmoil is a sign of global influence shifting to the developing world.

"It is a significant shift of power and influence towards the developing world and China in particular," he said.

He added that it was a sign that the situation in the US, which is consuming more than it is producing, cannot continue.

This guy is no ordinary economic commentator. This guy arbitrages whole economies. His expression of opinion in public is more likely to be aimed at shifting the market itself for his own purposes.

Has a man ever uttered words that did not promote his personal agenda?

Of course but most personal agendas have little impact. I would not dismiss this guy so lightly. If the dollar is looking sea sick, this guy will make a killing out of slinging it overboard.

Well, they can keep cutting rates until the cows come home.

Hang on, no they can't.

What's their Plan B?
