  • "Banks Are Merely Money Lending Brothels"

    A comment posted on one of Bernard Hickeys Blogs in the New Zealand Herald on the weekend led me to change what I was going to write about this week as it was so far from the truth.

    It read like this;

  • Questionable Decisions As Interest Rates Rise

    NO we will not loan you more money.
