Zero dollars

First the Japanese bought the Rockefeller centre. Then an Italian bought the Flatiron building. Then Israelis snapped up the Lipstick tower. Then Arabs made a move on the Chrysler building. Now, one of India's biggest Bollywood conglomerates is on the verge of buying Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks for $500-600 million, as well as signing deals with Brad Pitt, Jim Carrey and George Clooney. A Disgruntled Republican looks on the upside: “Do you think the Japanese would have been as likely to have bombed Hawaii, if they would have had the same level of investment in Hawaii prior to Pearl Harbor as they have now?”
