No real econ post today, but I did want to know that the TED (and LIBOR) have both continued down, with the TED today hitting 2.72, which is to say, the top end of the normal red-alert crash signal range, as opposed to the armageddon range in which it has been for several days. This is good news.

However, Alphaville has some interesting charts about UK debt, but it's not just the UK in question here, and has a lot to say also about default rates on corporate bonds. And hey, what's another half trillion in Fed funds anyway? They're using an old Depression-era emergency powers rule to grant US$540B to money market funds.

Finally, The Economist posted a short history of modern finance. And I'm stopping here so I don't go wandering through the financial data again - I have stuff to do!

Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.

People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.
