Tormenta de Pirata

Tormenta de pirata – a pirate’s storm. A Costa Rican friend of mine used the phrase today to describe Wellington’s weather (85 knot gusts at Mount Kaukau this morning!)

It’s probably even more apt a term for the financial gale currently flattening banks and upturning markets.

Two questions:

1. Can governments and central banks do enough to prevent a complete capsize?


2. What will the implications for the global political economy be?

On the latter, Dani Rodrik gets it.



  1. Not a political blog huh? You can’t escape it :P

  2. what do you mean? This is simply a post about the weather

    …I have to confess, I am struggling to resist right now :)
