Eventually there will be a QE that attempts to stuff it all into the long-end of the curve. It's too early yet, as it is still seen as too drastic a measure, but eventually, the inevitability of it all will normalize the experience, much like the rape of the short-end is old news today.

Otherwise all this heavy lifting is simply going to exhaust them.

When you search at google, and you know you want something from ZH, do it like this:


"site:zerohedge.com blah blah"


This will only return results from the site indicated. Spell carefully and if you add the www. in front it will be required to return in the results, so leave it off unless you know you want it.

when I lived in Wichita a local stripper club had a car wash fund raiser.  To see those girls in bikinis in broad daylight while sober was horrifying.  Alcohol and dark bars are strippers best friends.

Strangely if you go to the food commodity elevators and you are looking at it at the level of the real cash transactions it is widely reported that American rice sales are down because there is a glut of rice right now in the world priced less than American rice.  there will be less rice planted this spring because sales (at the truckload level from the elevators for either internal consumption or export) are very, very weak.

Today was significant not just for oil: NFP report was a tremendous tell. Into the 3rd year of the business cycle and only a pittance to show for it in terms of jobs added despite heroic monetary/fiscal policy. 

The tell is this: The engine of US economic growth no longer fires on all cylinders. And the long awaited turn in the NFP had that written all over it. 


What that means is  the public and also bank debt can not and will not be repaid. The only choice left is default through monetary debasement. Party on!

Fri, 03/04/2011 - 22:27 | 1021229 Gold 36000
Gold 36000's picture

not a real default but a debasement.  If you watch the cycle and understand that treasuries are probably in a long term slow bear market with occasional counter trend moves then you can make money.

The next ten years will be a great time to be a contrarian.  Overbought and oversold conditions will mean something again.  One has to go long treasuries when people start getting really scared about inflation, probably in the next couple of months will be a good time.  Then one has to sell treasures as their prices are rising and people become afraid of deflation.

When everyone bails from the stock market.....commodities are going to get really crowded.....then the government is going to step in with price controls and confiscation.

Price controls will lead to shortages.  If they put in price controls on food and gas, there will be shortages of food and gas.  If the government instigates price controls, bad times will be coming for all of us.

no they won't have to use price controls.  They are much more sophisticated now than in the seventies.  They will allow brief deflationary cycles to sorta kinda wash out some of the inflation in commodities.  Then they will start the inflationary process over again until people start getting nervous, then have another mild deflationary wash out.  Meanwhile the long term trend in commodities will be up, but it will be managed and not allowed to get out of control during this period of debt rebalancing.

The wests currencies have been grossly overvalued for decades - their tempory value has been based on a stupendous physical decapitalisation of utilities and industry.

Just monetize the shit out of it - you will see some Asian manufacturing capacity coming back withen a decade.

I will be glad to see the end of this industrial vandalism that started in the late 60s - the bankers need to be shot at dawn - what we have lost is incalculable but we may have something of value remaining.

Dork, ++.  So pathetic that these fuck tarts (I'll add politicians to your hit-list, the moonlight position for lawyers/bankers) sold our country out decades ago and retarded Americans still think their standard of living is increasing because of globalization.  Human economies never existed until people started using their hands to produce goods.  How could a nation have an economy without producing the vast majority of their goods.  Any other type of economy is parasitism at best, but really more like cancer.

"where, in the absence of ongoing central bank monetizations (with or without the assistance of major financial black holes like Europe's EFSF), will the world be able to find buyers for roughly $4-5 trillion in debt to keep the self-funded Ponzi going?".  There are only two places that they can get it from, another planet that decides to buy our debt or continued monetization until hyperinflation, thats it.  No one on this planet has the ability or the inclination to fund another country or countries debt to that crazy amount, and even if they did it would be at their countries peril.  As he said, as a last resort they may try to push this to the long end of the curve but it's at their peril.  Because if done, along with the monetization going no economists can defend a classic debt monetization of an economy and say it won't implode in disaster.  We are done, what is happening now is people are trying to find a hidehole or a place secure for their money when this whole game blows up.
