#2 Hmmm....wonder if the practice of economic theory by certain elements of financial and economic government central planners qualifies as 'witchcraft'? How about moving their next summit to the summits in Napal?

#7 It's been the same year in Nepal and other backwards "nations" for centuries, Delphi.
