Fabius Maximus has posted an excellent article about the recent media coverage of what appears to be a current El Nino in progress.For those not familiar (maybe there are a few?) El Nino refers to a shifting of the physical distribution of warmer and cooler water in the Pacific controlled in part by changes in the strength of the prevailing Easterlies such that the central and eastern Pacific surface temperatures are warmer than usual and North and South American weather patterns are affected as well as Asian weather patterns through complex mechanisms. That is an oversimplification, but will do for now.) Fabius Maximus leads his article with a criticism of media for writing sensationalized articles (especially wild headlines which he calls "clickbait"). I want to amplify on some of the points FM makes about El Nino.

It's kind of like selling goods to consumers with very bad credit and then being surprised when they don't pay.
But before I get into that, we all know Greece owes Germany, the ECB, and the IMF a lot of money.

When the Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission (FSLRC) produced the draft Indian Financial Code (IFC) in March 2013, the Ministry of Finance put it out for public review and comments. This version is informally termed IFC v1.0. Hundreds of comments were received on this first draft. Justice Srikrishna and his team worked on these comments and have come out with a revised draft Indian Financial Code. This is informally called IFC v1.1.
