Outliers Nov 22, 08, 7:57 p.m.
Why are some people amazingly successful -- and other people with the same intelligence or abilities just part of the crowd?
We always think that it's the smartest people that become the most successful. You postulate in this new book [that] it's not always intelligence that leads to success. You say "it's not the brightest who succeed, it's rather a gift. Outliers are those given opportunities who have the strength and presence of mind to seize them." But there are also some commonalities with these outliers.

The U.S. economy is headed... Nov 9, 08, 7:20 a.m.
The U.S. economy is headed... so far down the toilet, international economist say that the U.S. economy will never recover, and we have to one else to thank but the Bush Regime!
Who America Owes
The U. S. government owes $2.67 trillion to foreign governments and investors—20% of our total GDP. And that number has grown rapidly. "In 2001, China held $61.5 billion in U.S. debt. Now it has $541 billion," says James Ludes of the bipartisan American Security Project in Washington, D.C. "In 2001, we owed Russia less than $10 billion. Now it’s $74.4 billion."
The debt is sold to other countries in the form of U.S. Treasury securities. "We also have to pay interest on those securities," adds federal budget expert Doug Elmendorf. In coming years, a big chunk of our country's wealth will leave our economy and go overseas to pay back the loans. Will this outflow of cash affect our standing in the world? The U.S. emerged as a major global power after World War I, and the U.K. declined in part because we owned so much British debt. Ironically, today the U.K. is our third largest creditor.
Countries That Own the Most U.S. Debt
Japan $585.9 billion
China $541.0 billion
United Kingdom $307.4 billion
OPEC Nations $179.8 billion
Caribbean banking centers $147.7 billion
