Fabulous Flags: The glittering tradition of voudou flags reminds us of the beauty of Haiti and its people

Gold’s Dark Side

Investors are hoarding it to hedge against the dollar’s weakness. Consumers are buying it up in ever increasing volumes. Gold seemingly adds up to big opportunities wherever you look, with US gold jewelry sales representing a growing $17 billion market and China gold jewelry sales reaching nearly 260 billion yuan in 2009.
