I believe that BP is pretty much, well, toast. Does that mean that they are out of business tomorrow? No it does not. They may in fact be operating as an entity called BP for some time to come.

Today, many are calling for the end to subprime lending, and this would be wrong. Responsible subprime lending has done more to lift poor people out of poverty than anything else in the last 50 years.

In some ways, I feel like I work out all year -- not to finish a marathon or a cycling century, 100 mile road race -- but to simply make sure I can stand up (and stay up) and deliver at Davos.
