It's the Monday after Easter Sunday and all markets are closed in Europe in deference to Christ's miraculous rise from the dead. In some ways, then, it's apropos - if a bit sacrilegious - to mention graveyards.
Here's what's been nagging me for a long time now (at least a year):
- There's a major war in Europe which keeps escalating. People are using the word "nuclear weapons" with increasing frequency.
- Tensions between US and China are high and rising. The proximate cause is Taiwan, but the major issue here is nothing less than global supremacy.
- Climate change is accelerating but no one is really doing anything about it in a practical manner.
