    I was reading the following this evening

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/aide-putin-makes-stupidest-threats-090338005.html

    and it brought back memories from when I was in school and the "competition between the economic systems" was being taught (now not a part of most school curriculum). The famous (or should I say infamous) quote of Khruschev roughly translated in the American press as "We will bury you" began echoing.

    Somehow I am getting the idea that the folks running the financial affairs of the Kremlin still haven't figured out Capitalism...

    One thing that disappointed me about the article is that it didn't mention whether or not he was pounding his shoe on the table. :rolleyes:

    I wonder what reliable reserve currency he has in mind.

    Bitcoins?

    Da! That's the ticket.
