Greek Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou has the European Central Bank over a barrel and doesn't even know it. If he had a handle on the situation, he'd thumb his nose at the ECB's austerity measures, and demand a no-strings-attached loan package to help his country get through the current rough patch.

THE Baltic Dry Index is falling -- and I am keeping a careful eye on it. This measure of the costs of shipping goods across the globe was one of the earliest signs that something nasty was happening to the world economy. So early that I did not pick up on its significance. Nor did anybody else very much. Okay, I admit it -- I didn't actually ever look at the Baltic Dry Index.
