Sometimes a picture truly is worth a thousand words. There’s a Reuter’s article stating that “Threatened by a “financial tsunami,” the world must consider building a financial order no longer dependent on the United States, a leading Chinese state newspaper said on Wednesday“.
Here’s the chinese version of the “Financial Tsunami” (金融海啸） story. Toward the end of the story there’s an interesting picture.
Don’t worry, the picture is just chinese clipart from a regular Joe (or Zhang) — his pants say “房贷”, referring to the mortgage he’s paying and it’s an almost unbearable burden…
But if you read into it more – could be interesting 😉
