Emerging South refutes WSJ Online

A first for MyStockVoice, until now, all the content on the blog has been compiled by yours truly, however John Baeyens over at Emerging South put together a very interesting post which flicked my switches. Basically John is refuting a report & more importantly the figures attached on a piece in the Wall Street Journal Online.

Can only back him up on this, as the mainstream press do have a habit of manipulating figures to suit their editorial slant. In a classic two legs good, four legs bad article, the WSJ managed to misquote (negatively)  Brazil’s public debt / GDP ratio by a “measly” 20%.

Johns excellent post containing plenty of authoritative links can be read here : Emerging South
