Santa comes to Poggibonsi
Banco de Poggibonsi e di Colle Pottine,
Poggibonsi, Italia, Italy, Europe
What a guy needs in this trade is a true lollapalooza of a deal that comes in with a wet sail just in time to bring his year end figures out ahead of budget, so when our partner in the Poggibonsi Bank calls up to tell me he has such a deal for us, I am on the plane to Pisa quicker than Greenspan can say over-exuberant bubble.
For me it is always a great moment when I see that tower defying gravity, it is to physics what the bumblebee is to aerodynamics or Italy's finances are to economics, maybe I use a cover picture of it on this report we do for Harvey Q Schicklgruber III.V on the future European currency, the euro emu.
Well, I pour myself onto this put-put train which finally gets me to historic Poggibonsi, where our partner greets me with a king size hello, Herbie, he cries, is long time, where you been, we drink to your return in our own local vino di tavola superiore, the one we make out of grapes on account this is cheaper than making it out of old rubber tyres.
