      From the Wall Street Journal: China's economic plan these days reads like a massive security plan. Food security. Energy security. Raw materials security. Supply chain security.

Obligatory New Years Eve Open Thread

Happy New Year, Feliz Año Nuevo and Gung Hay Fat Choy!

We here at The Confluence want to thank you all for putting up with us for another year. Eventually we’ll figure out this blogging thing.

Tomorrow we’ll discuss New Year’s resolutions, but tonight is the time for excess and overindulgence.

Live it up tonight. As my grandpa used to say, “You’re not drunk unless you have to hang on to the grass to keep from fallin’ off the earth!”

  14. WOMEN are now more likely to cheat than men, a survey reveals.

    One in five said they would “definitely” have an affair if they fell for another bloke.

    In contrast, just nine per cent of fellas were certain they would betray their partner.

    The study of 3,000 people has for the first time exposed girls as the bigger love rats.

    It found that women aged 35 to 40 were most likely to cheat.

    Okay, it’s England, but still . . .

  15. It’s happy New Year in Kansas —-
