Higher taxes, higher interest rates, collapsing currencies, and PMs near all time highs....all good for the market, right?

What...go overweight Abercrombie here at three year highs?

Make that two middle fingers--picture Mini-Me.  Ireland needs to give the banksters the big F.U. like Iceland.  They may be PIIGS, but they've got standards, too: they won't dance with banksters.

Yeah, the teleprompter in chief has 3 wars going with rumors of a build up for a forth (Iran) and his first thought is to cut entitlements and raise taxes? WTF?

He does have a D behind his name, so the tax raises comes naturally.

he hopes to appeal to enough of the R's, so he will at a minimum mouth the words 'cut entitlements' with the fine print details stating nothing gets cut until the out years of the 51'st president's term.

"Chinese Companies Go on Global Bond Spree".

May I suggest we make it illegal for US pension funds to invest in these?

Irish taxpayers should not complain about having to bail-out the country's banks, an ECB policymakers said today.

Irish taxpayers should not complain about having to bail-out the country's banks and in future regulation should be steered at a European level, one of the ECB's top policymakers said today.

In an opinion piece in the Financial Times, ECB executive board member Lorenzo Bini Smaghi said Ireland's taxpayers should foot the bill as they are the ones that benefited during the pre-crisis boom years and elected the governments that regulated the banks as the problems built.

'The principle of 'no taxation without representation' should work both ways. If taxpayers have the right to share in decision-making, they must also accept the consequences,' Bini Smaghi wrote.

'As long as the accountability of supervisors to taxpayers is primarily a national affair, then there is a high risk that taxpayers will foot most of the bill. They should not complain when it actually happens,' he added.

Bini Smaghi said that while in theory, shareholders, managers and bondholders should bear the costs of a bank being restructured, in an open system like the euro zone's such problems were never black and white as they could pose systemic risks.

The situation where banks are based in one country but have subsidiaries carrying risks in another also creates the danger that they are not properly controlled by anyone.

Ireland's problems showed pure national regulation was flawed and in future needed to be steered at a euro zone level or wider, he said. 'Ultimately this would mean the integration of independent prudential supervision at the European, or at least euro area, level - to match the way burdens are shared when a systemic crisis strikes,' he wrote.

'Such a move may seem politically unpalatable, as taxpayers around the euro zone fear having to bail out the banks in other countries. But these taxpayers would at least have the assurance that banks in different countries would henceforth be subject to uniform and independent supervision,' Bini Smaghi said.
