Hello from Mexico City,

I'm going to keep this fairly short and reasonably sweet.

I made a New Year's Resolution, actually a few months ago, to work a bit less.  By "work a bit less" I mean about 14 hours per day, 6 days per week... and only for a few hours on Sunday whenever possible.  And, also punctuated throughout the day with yoga/meditation and siestas.

Last December, a CBC News headline announced, “Cuba, US to restore diplomatic relations after 50-year rift.” Why now? The answer in one word: Venezuela.  

HUGO AND FIDEL, THE FRICK AND FRACK OF COMMUNISM

Venezuela is at the tipping point of a massive collapse. Grocery shelves are bare, with military personnel stationed at stores. Photographing the empty shelves is now a criminal offense. Even in the cities, it is impossible to find diapers, milk and other necessities for children. Average people will withstand state-created deprivations but they will not watch babies and children suffer.

Two events from the past week stand out as particularly memorable. One may or may not be remembered a year from now, depending on how things unfold going forward. The other – the Swiss franc revaluation – definitely will be. The possibly memorable event I am referring to was the spike down in the bitcoin price to $160 / 900 RMB. If we consider the shake-out scenario discussed last week, we did indeed reach the $160 target price level, but the price did not remain under $180 for long. Those who bought at $160 did well, since the rebound went as high as $233.
