On Sunday morning I caught a bit of an interview Mark Carney did on CTV(similar to shows like MTP). Carney was also recently appt'd by the G20 governments to be the Head of the International Bank Stabilization Board, and was ranked recently by Time as the 21st most important person in the world.

If you are interested in a more dispassionate discussion of the world and US situations, you might want to watch these two excerpts.
Here's a link to the first part.

Second part is very hard-hitting for the USA.

Says:
OTTAWA — Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney says the U.S. economy could take years to recover from its current weak state -- and may never return to its glory days.
"The nature of the U.S. recovery, it's going to take a number of years before they get back to the U.S. that we used to know," Carney told CTV's Question Period.
"In fact, they are not in our opinion ultimately going to get back fully to the U.S. we used to know."
The weakness south of the border is costing the Canadian economy $30 billion annually in lost exports, according to Carney.
And while the central bank is predicting a 0.6 per cent hit to the Canadian economy -- worth about $10 billion -- from the European economic crisis, Carney says consumer spending and business investment will prevent Canada from sliding backwards.

Also a link to a Globe and Mail article. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/... The link at the bottom of this article, to over 500 comments, is also worthwhile.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  That sound you hear (0+ / 0-)

    is the trumpeting of a hadrosaur - air blown through an empty echo chamber in the beast's skull. Some believe they make those sounds as a form of communication, (they are heard animals) but this is becoming a minority opinion, as all evidence leads to the conclusion that they are too stupid to engage in meaningful communication.
