Charles Darwin's theory of 'survival of the fittest' is grossly flawed. I guess, bio-diversity is the most important aspect of the nature, which simply implies healthier competition. And to maintain participation, we gotta protect weaker participants. Natural elimination of the weaker section on merit alone kills the soul of a competition in long run.

Today, the financial markets have been a victim of free market ideology (survival of the fittest) . Some kind of protectionism is must for the survival of competition (and markets as well) and thus the survival of the fittest.

Aren't we all bound in a chain and a chain is as strong as its weakest link.

However, protectionism kills the spirit. But spirit may be sacrificed to save soul, because as long as soul was there, spirit could be revived...

Ox can't be milked saala.

Right after the Chinese new year, oxen kick up the dust in the iron ore markets and sleeping milkmen run in to milk.

In last two days dry shipping company stocks have zoomed up by 20-25%.

Truth of the gender will be revealed only after the dust settles, because Ox can't be milked saala.
