Speaking with a friend in Latvia (Skype is amazing), he told me things are very quiet for this time of year. Normally it is full of Russian students. Now, their student debt has increased by a factor and they are staying home. I am sympathetic to anyone whose nest egg evaporates from being caught holding the wrong government paper. Politically a group of wildcatters in North Dakota have achieved far more than the UN sponsored sanction entities could do. Two rhetorical questions: who could ever have connected the dots in advance, and should I take the rouble vs dollar off my quote screen yet.
