it's been the final trading day in russia before very long break what more can you say oh well the traders are actually coming back on the eighth of january so it's a huge break while all the markets are trading so they have been kind of you know playing it safe moving into cash but because it's the final trading session that we are rounding up the year we're going to talk about the best and worst performers of the year after a short break when i'm back all right. in japan the average height for men is one hundred eighty two centimeters ten centimeters shorter because of that some employers refused to hire me one of them even told me directly that i was too short to deal with the client's computers already spent three months in this hospital and plans to stay for another four to add the coveted seven santa majors to his stature invented by the famed soviet author beauty is good for you is there of in the nineteen fifties these frames were initially used to treat fractures in deformities by cutting bones and slowly
pulling them up or therefore stimulating tissue regeneration it was out of was able to receive arms and legs and people who thought they were crippled for life be sent to the other patients. and their shattered lives with the goal when professor of design first frame using bicycle parts sixty years later his invention is increasingly being used to help people quite eager to fracture their legs to become a few centimeters taller than the ultimate goal is still the same fixing somebodies lives both literally and figuratively about a third of patients admitted to the result of center now days seeking surgery focused medical reasons most of them a man and most are not what you would call vertically challenged professor novick of who operated on many of them says it usually comes down to a man's pride some of the first patient to turn to us with a leg length i mean
a quest to meet his fifteen centimeters tall to want to surgery because his partner was tool than him we like to say that we need to break their legs in order to fix their head maybe nothing wrong with them from an orthopedic point of view but there is something psychological that prevents them from living their lives fully being happy and we fix it like lengthening surgeries are banned in many countries and even the out they're pretty expensive in russia the entire course costs eleven thousand dollars about one tenth of the similar package in the united states. financial considerations were one of the reasons that brought peace washington state native to western siberia yet his main motive for the surgery had to do with how he fared in the auditors in america average height was one seventy five i was one sixty seven or one sixty eight in so one eight centimeters would have brought me right to average if i just wanted to be average for women height isn't so important you know i think girl can be short and it's not a big deal i think
a guy is like expected to be taller just before the operation most mad a russian girl who found he's a regional hide quite endearing yet he still want to have had the surgery adding seven more centimeters to he self-confidence she told me the whole time you're crazy you're normal you're perfect. so now or should i call you so what a compliment for somebody who's used to falling short of his own expectations. and then welcome to business or to be with me dmitri medvedev it has been a. crisis wrecked year for many but some have been battered so hard they made into business short list of this year's biggest losers now that's a finance guy takes
a close look. in purely financial terms the past year's biggest loser is the man behind mexico's grupo electra ricardo salinas lost more than nine billion dollars in two thousand and twelve he has seen the value of his assets nearly cut in half over the past year facebook's founder mark zuckerberg knows what it's like before facebook stock market debut zuckerberg was estimated to be worth up to twenty billion dollars the social network's stock has underperformed since its may i.p.o. and zucker brigs net worth has dropped by about half but while he's still solidly in the world's top one hundred richest people boris berezovsky this year's biggest loser in terms of reputation is definitely not his six and i have billion dollar lawsuit against another prominent russian oligarch ramona brim overage became the biggest private litigation battle in the british history and the biggest flop for
berezovsky whom london's high court judge called an unreliable witness he tried to laugh it off you wish more people but it is bad but that is not a bit of it but i will go to the scoring but was there is no having to foot the forty million pound bill the loss of burned a hole not only as pocket but it also ruined his reputation perhaps the biggest loser in terms of image in two thousand and twelve was ukraine its much publicized deal to build a liquefied gas terminal with spain's help quickly unraveled into a complete fiasco in november and proudly claimed that it will soon overcome its dependence on russia's gas as it signed a one billion dollar agreement to build an l n g terminal in the odessa region at a pompous ceremony with prime minister and the energy minister attending two days
later its presumed partner spain's energy giant gas natural for no sir. denied any involvement saying it knows nothing about the deal and the man who signed the papers on behalf of the spanish side turned out to be a former ski teacher turned a con man but there are some who say this really the biggest loser this year has been western europe it's going nowhere it has no political direction and what's worse the only people who are trying to give a political direction are people who want to actually give it a worse economic and but just rather than an opportunity for survival the year two thousand and thirteen will show whether tighter economic and fiscal or nation the eurozone brings any results but it will get worse before it gets better experts say the recession will deepen and unemployment will hit new highs rising to unprecedented levels of about twenty five percent in spain and greece and with upcoming elections in italy and germany the european union is facing plenty of
political as well as economic uncertainties like they say you're never a loser until you quit trying gnashing it's clear business are. going to what's happening in the markets we start of course with the united states the only markets which is trading president barack obama on friday will be making a new scaled back offer in a bid to avoid the looming fiscal cliff the clock is ticking away meanwhile the market is dropping for the fifth consecutive session europe is also dropping on pretty much the same fears but there's still one more day this year to turn that trend around us of thirty first of december as you can see the market is also down russia's ruble ended the final session of the year on a down note but over the year ruble strengthened five percent against the dollar so it's been quite a good year for the ruble russia's markets also saw a final bit of a sell off but that's because nobody wants to assume the risks of missing out on
the important stories like the fiscal cliff and it's developments so they usually go into cat. before long holiday so overall the my six gained five percent this year r.t.s. ten percent which makes it go down into history as a pretty boring year actually all right now let's take a look at some of the best performing stocks of the year coming in number one carmaker sollars is susan the russian japanese joint venture was doing much better than the market this year in the industry in general posting strong production gains and is also forecast to continue growing next year it's up more than twice the value in the second place magnets along with other retailers had a very good year other companies in the industry for example the trading center in moscow showed eighty five percent return on the year and electronics retail and video fifty two percent finally on list we have the second heaviest stock on the market that is ross nast which was actually pretty flat all year as were world prices but managed
a huge gain right after the purchase of t m k v p one of the biggest emanate deals in history which will make rosneft the number one world producer in terms of reserves in the world that's of course after the deal is finalized in two thousand and thirteen ok now let's move to the biggest losers worst company of the year which is a second tier stock that is coal miner spots kyra the company has been in the troubled times for quite a while which has led mine a year for us to gradually boost its stake to eighty two percent in the company effectively taking over next up we have the electricity sector it's not just in toronto you yes but also other companies like the federal grid company or research hydro which also declined by around a quarter and finally we have the gas sector that has been dropping in connection with declining demand in europe and the development of shale technologies so we have gazprom and its rival noble tech they're both down around ten percent on the
year gazprom remains one of the most under bought stocks with a price to earnings ratio of just three point five. wine prices will continue to rise next year and in two years then yes blue chips could cost thirty percent more that's because of poor harvest that led france's wine production to slump twenty percent in two thousand and twelve wine expert and exporter sound broke at us weekly says the mass market wines will grow less by no more than ten percent and he explains why they will have the same increases more or less every year five six percent is the maximum ten percent because. it's a constant growth everywhere not only in france also in new world was that the price of wine always growing if we're talking about. best wines from us and some good wines from other countries the quality is going up and some of
them most of them let's say. most of them cut the volumes to make the call to better and the second reason is that more and more people are involved in that and when consumption in the world and if let's say ten or fifteen years ago there were no asian consumers and the market for more rich people now engine and countries like in china they travel to europe if you like to consume european good. potential even in european style they do not care very much about the prices so far what are the top wines this year that will make the best present this will be definitely first go aboard flight. five four four big meadow it's definitely petru from the right bank that's for border and then from burgundy it's

run and revealed the piper luring america into ruin. the wicked witch of the east symbol of east coast because roaming america in a fever did it again and again wall street lenders have failed every generation time off the time off the time. the bankers have been at the root of problems throughout the twentieth and twenty first century very much implicated in nazi buildup that continued even after world war two started it's an unknown piece of american history in the united states money has gone out of productive investments and is involved in trying to live
investments and leveraged buyouts and things that produce nothing real useful in this. time to put them out there misery says one of the world's most sought economists i sat down with nobel laureate ed prescott says he now i'm not sure why even when even the banks what's in the fractional reserve sounds i get scared with the new i told the washington new york connection who ends up subsidizing them. taxpayers fractional reserve is the poems the banks use today when you give one hundred dollars they keep just spend and gamble the all the million t. in a downturn like nope it's go bad your money just lost it's all moved as the full story casino. launches. which is what wall street has become true we should trillions of dollars being placed on whiskey debts which already on this country a disaster and can lead us down the road in my view when all the wall street
bailout. rushes be made off game i've rody people put a third of the national budget in his poems that some made a packet before it went bust somebody told us his and made off pyramids exactly the same as banks only difference they legalized but then they'll bust as well legendary investor jim rogers also says banks a ponzi and so is the fed he joins us now twelve years ago greenspan ignored your warning he's fueling stock market real estate and consumer of the bubbles is the fed at least getting bits and now. that's what i think you're. going to see if everything was very soft and everything but ok why we think you i really care about now what last week it is now going to. be about five trillion dollars you know this stuff going oh that sounds like it's
all you know it was all they would have noted. that thousand a cheek on a. rope there all the critics say that housing and. probably going to collapse oh well. we have all heard about thousand of the best economists in the wall or. none of us ok anything's going. on. yes down south. they were always about to collapse and everything. but raul they were all they were totally of all the local lab they thought it would why do we why don't we listen to that why do we why do we have all right why don't we play it again the north central but that i felt their new warning to america if it doesn't stop the banks will try to overtake america have a budget that our nation and the world that know it's already been over it would
take. credit for the large. well that of the world but how much more nobody can we don't know what's going to have adequate that think that somehow they get about. what they wanted to call it a no way no way would it would. that around steve king was voted to boycott them is the first post and long before repeated to give clear warning of the global fund to cross this how was it over to you this is all being totally counterproductive when it's allowed to finance speculative objects like when to a lot of oh gosh and so on it's like you're not checking out. borrowing money to gamble on what there are next on my best house. an incentive to not let this house down when most americans change would happen if they don't i'm
a partisan issue but trying because you. just don't exploit what you just you know i mean washington completely and you can even up there one hopes are still you know i've been broken away from the finances and i think you need to in the succession necessarily restore came in he then took on the banks directly in europe is in the russian stage it's all about trying the money when it's out of the champ so it takes a change like. banks. said i didn't buy. documents many many heads of banks or what's most of the banks didn't know they were engaged in fraudulent activity to be in jail or incompetent let alone i mean now if so and if you go to the savings and loans class suspect you know not only not bill white was initiated back and put about three hundred people on now the saving on.
the only people on buses burning night off the pony made of but no the real a corner that makes them dangerous congressman ron paul if it is working franticly their editorial izing they've hired a lobbyist and they do not want us to know what they're doing and they use all kinds of frivolous arguments why the congress is not a lot of know what they're up to the fifth is the bailouts costing just a trillion pastry media quotes several of the documents the federal reserve has tried to keep secret for years showing the real figure is twenty million trillion dollars that's twice the value of everything produced in the u.s. in twenty twelve. eighty percent of that stash is going to just twelve banks in bed with the fed bankers sitting on all of the regionals but this to me smacks of enormous conflict of interest
from the already warned years ago the fed by calls swirling a massive crisis he joins us how far has it come ok there are only twelve banks that do this stuff. the total number of banks that are involved heavily in credit default swaps and who finance their positions in assets but issuing let abilities to other banks their own twelve of them they should have gone in on a friday and said we're going to have a holiday this weekend. we're going to go in and we're going to take all your balance sheets we're going to see who knows who what we're going to net all of this stuff out we're going to find out that these twelve banks don't. any of the other five thousand united states banks they only owe each other and forced them to wind down and net out what they owe each other and shrink to become extremely small
banks which is what they most of them would become but they. repeated crises. and wipe out the financial wealth of our households and firms that pension funds the banks goldman sachs and john paulson as a hedge fund manager you know rigged these things they put together mortgage backed securities that they knew would have very high default rates and they did they had default rates of eighty ninety percent. so the whole thing was just rig so that. the hedge fund manager and goldman sachs can make a lot of money on effectively death and we've gone way way behind in derivatives that some of the drill was actually our bets on people dying so-called death settlements peasant insurance this was in the michael moore movie you know where employers are going to win and if their employees die early here the
franco crissy of america. brings the industry full circle jesus drove the money and then those. in the inferno inhabit the seventh in a ring of. boiling things. now goldman sachs makes products they know will fail with incentives to beloit. gold's work. the poit piper of death sends america over the fiscal cliff. this is the truth. movement.
