Keith Rankin: Marginalised Males And The Suicide Problem

- We are starting to acknowledge that suicide is a topic that must be discussed and discussed openly. But in New Zealand almost all the media references are to youth suicide.

New York Markets Do The Dead Cat Bounce

- A few days of confidence on the New York stock markets early this week gave way overnight to another rout, taking the world leading markets back close to their two year low levels of last week. In other words this week’s brief return to confidence on Wall has turned out to be yet another dead cat bounce. See... New York Markets Do The Dead Cat Bounce [1]
