"The world economy is locked on a course toward an emerging markets crisis and a renewed slowdown in the US, despite the Federal Reserve's decision last week to hold off on a rise in rates."
"Poor Anne. She is so unhappy. And when she is unhappy she tends to eat too much and gain weight. We thought she would get a good job in Paris."For months and months, she lived with us at home...going to interviews. She was getting depressed. And partly she was depressed because she didn't have a boyfriend. But I told her, 'If you keep eating like that, what do you expect?'"Finally, after about six months, she answered an ad on the Internet for someone to work in San Francisco. Well, you know there...if you can just walk and talk at the same time...if you present yourself well, you know, if you dress properly and have a good education, apparently, you don't have any trouble getting a good job."Her employer has one of these Internet things. I'm not sure what they are doing. But they are worth billions. Three young guys started the business. And they're very happy with Anne."And you know, even though she is a little 'heavy,' she's pretty normal for there. She didn't admit it, but I think she has a boyfriend already. And she's only been there a month. I think he's Chinese or something."When she first started looking for work overseas, she thought she'd get a job in Brazil...or maybe even China. But they are both doing worse than France."Apparently, it is only the US that is hiring people. And they like hiring foreigners."
