Never Underestimate Gnomes

In particular Never Underestimate The Swiss Gnomes

Swiss topple U.S. as most competitive economy: WEF


GENEVA (Reuters) – Switzerland knocked the United States off the position as the world's most competitive economy as the crash of the U.S. banking system left it more exposed to some long-standing weaknesses, a report said on Tuesday.
The World Economic Forum's global competitiveness report 2009/2010 showed economies with a large focus on financial services such as the U.S., Britain or Iceland were the losers of the crisis.
The U.S. as the world's largest economy lost last year's strong lead, slipping to number two for the first time since the introduction of the index in its current form in 2004.
Maybe if so many people in the US weren't on funemployment this wouldn't have happened.
I'm pretty competitive, can I still get invited to Davos this year?

Ok my stock is worth practically nothing. My husband is facing another lay off and hope he can keep his head above water. The only thing a girl can be sure of is her jewelry LOL! So I'll melt that down ;D

Oh Sher, you've got enough on your plate already with caring for you son, I certainly hope that you husband doesn't get laid off.
And...I'm not kidding about gold.
I'd rather have a gold necklace than a hermes birkin bag.
