Danielle Park stopped by for our bi-weekly chat. She believes that the long awaited Black Swan arrived in the form of plunging energy and commodity prices.

Consumers will see their purchasing power increase, if they still have jobs that is. Emerging economies such as China are in for rough times and the illusion of prosperity that has been so convincing for so long will be shattered.
