Chinese markets enjoy the year of the bull

Until a few weeks ago, Goldpark Mines and Investments Ltd. was an obscure little company whose main asset was its listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Then, China came calling. A state-run Chinese petrochemical company offered to buy controlling interest in the Toronto-based company early in October for about $4 million.

ISLAND OF FEAR

Emile squats on his heels in the fine white sand, sheltering from the midafternoon sun in the shade of a gigantic fig tree. He claims to be 35, although he could easily be a decade older. He wears nothing but black cotton shorts, as tattered as the threadbare clothing on his four young children who are chasing a skinny brown dog around a huge mound of rotting garbage at the water’s edge.

The guilt behind a tragic deed

In 1970, it was entirely possible for a college girl with no history of pathological behavior or hint of criminal ambition to help rob a bank in the belief that the heist somehow would hasten U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam. Saying that such a person must have been crazy or stupid or unspeakably naive is not really an adequate response because it fails to acknowledge the craziness, stupidity and naïveté of national leaders calling the shots nearly a quarter-century ago.
