A new theory is born

After Thomas L. Friedman (in)famous "McDonald's theory" (a type of Pax Burger), we now have a new international relations theory based on Starbucks, another global chain:

"The higher the concentration of expensive, nautically themed, faux-Italian-branded Frappuccino joints in a country's financial capital, the more likely the country is to have suffered catastrophic financial losses."
