Is Greece Beginning To Consider A "Strategic" Default?

Tyler Durden's picture





 

And why not - after all it's all the rage among those waiting in line for iPads so they can be first to buy "The Steve Jobs Guide for Deadbeat Dummies Trying To Learn To Read Good." Now that Obama has given his blessing to an entire generation of Americans to tear up contracts (very appropriate coming from a contract law professor), the follow up to moral hazard is resulting in not just individuals and companies, but entire nations simply opting out of paying their dues. Evans-Pritchard reports that after today's ludicrous rates on 3 and 6 month Bills the tide may be turning in Greece, with both parties in the country finally realizing its creditors will do everything in their power to bleed it dry, at "usurious" rates. With economic growth negative for a decade and debt interests quite certainly positive, the marginal difference will destroy not only economic output, but sink Greece ever more in debt, as existing creditors fund capital shortfalls at maturity (or default) by ever increasing interest rates. Greece has the option to stop funneling domestic capital to Germany later (inevitable) or sooner (if it finally makes the right decision).

From the Telegraph:

There are still questions that need to be answered on the EU deal," said Julian Callow from Barclays Capital. "Greece has a Herculean task ahead. The economy is contracting yet fiscal tightening has hardly begun. We expect growth of minus 4.3pc this year, and minus 1.9pc in 2011 which will be difficult for debt dynamics."

Opposition politicians in Athens have begun to question whether it is in the country's interests to accept harsh wage deflation in order to pay foreign creditors. "This is usury: we need restructuring of debts," said the Righti-wing LAOS party.

Such views are gaining support in parts of the ruling PASOK party, raising the risk that it will splinter as further austerity is imposed. Diplomats see a direct parallel with Oskar Lafontaine's Linke movement drawn from the Left-wing of Germany's Social Democrats.

Not only will a delay in defaulting do nothing for the economy except bleed it to death slowly, but ever more frequent risk flare episodes culminating in bank runs will intensify the deposit outflows and impair the banking system beyond repair (for depositors to keep their money in Greek banks, they need to be compensated for the risks: double digit rates sound about right), thus dooming any hope for an economic recovery. Evans-Pritchard's conclusion: a dead-end Greece may be on the road to the same societal splintering that post-Weimar Germany experienced, and culminated in some very tragic consequences.

I was reading something that said this "we are likely moving towards a coordinated outright default, which will involve the devaluation of currencies followed by central banks capping money growth, which in turn will trigger a second deflationary depression." 

 

Why would central bankers cap money supply growth in the case of a sovereign default?  Because the currency has already been devalued?

A deflationary depression is much more acceptable to authorities than hyperinflation. Depressions spread government dependency. Hyperinflation spreads revolution.

The system has been hyperinflating for 66 years.  Credit creation from $440B to $53T.  

The equation always wins. 

The last time the system peaked, you were probably not even born yet. The only reason the collapse stopped was a guy named Hilter went and liquidated a ton of non-funded liabilities.  

This time expect a lost generation and billions of unfunded liabilities being wiped from the books.

Very interesting comment.

If "Depressions spread government dependency," that would seem to fit the Obama plan.

But won't it require hyperinflation to fix the debt? Or is that later?

What would the Global Wall Streeters prefer? Or do they win either way?

The Debt doesn't get "fixed", at least not in the way you're thinking, it gets defaulted.

Which, of course, adds more fuel to the deflationary fire.

And I think Fischer has this spot-on - think FDR/New-Deal on steroids.  Obambi will be able to get the Gubermint involved into things old Frankie could only dream about because all barriers between citizen and state have essentially been eroded away since th e30's.

They'd make a massive devaluation and then "cap" money supply to make you believe the devaluation was over. That was the 1933 event in which the government declared a bank holiday, confiscated gold holdings, and devalued the dollar from $20/oz to $35/oz. It's unnecessary for the govt to do that now and probably impossible given that they would need to do it globally.

Eventually when inflationary expectations take hold, these guys will attempt to put their foot down and become very indignant about all the money printing they've done. They'll even get a few of their paid bullshitters to talk up a deflation scare. But the answer is only a fool would believe them at that point.

This report is true. One of my clients was scratching his head a month or so ago over his mother-in-law's trip from Athens to London to drop a million some-odd euros on a pad in the city. As he said, this is the absolute reverse of the trend that has existed over there forever. Old European money usually comes south to Greece to buy beachfront pads on the blue water. Not anymore; nice reversal. So, add item #569 to 'List of Greek Woes' -- potential real estate crash.

You just have to love economists.  This appropriately named, rather Callow fellow sees, "-4.3% growth this year and -1.9% in 2011".

Pulled that one right out of your ass, didn't you Julian?  What's that?  You have a "model"?  Oh, well then, if you've got a model it must be right.  And your model for a bankrupt fringe economy in a world that saw a $40 trillion asset fantasy value collapse, followed by the largest amount of money printing in history and the most gravity defying equity market rally in history, is based on what historical precedent?

Of course your conclusion---that a bankrupt country already heavily in debt, who borrows even more money at a time when its economy is shrinking and there is massive capital flight---might face "difficult debt dynamics" (The Dreaded Driple D) is spot-on, krackerjack, you-deserve-whatever-they-are-paying-you-and-more, piercing analysis.  Oh, you're British?  That's the proverbial "understatement" then, I guess.

If Greece defaults...

They will not allow it. They will do to Greece what they are doing to Iceland and what they did to Argentina. Argentina went through a severe depression went they defaulted. The powers that be will make Greece a spectacular, terrifying example to all the world that default is not an option. Look at Iceland, even after 97% of the population said no to pay backs, their leaders said that the vote was obsolete and that they would pay.

A master does not easily let a slave escape. They will call up the posse, let the dogs lose and when they catch you they will severely whip and punish you.

I cant imagine Greece willingfully default now.

A consumption game is going on and defaulting now would push them on the side lines watching all the other big players eating out everything they can. When Greece recovers, they might discover the glutoons have already done the job of cleaning the dishes.

Not the proper times to turn a pariah. Big consumer countries which happen to be in deep debts (oh the coincidence) will fight not to default, countries which are consumed will be led to default as it will make them easier to consume.
Later, when there is much less to consume left on the table, well, at this point, you can stand up, 'forget' to pay the bills and leave the table with much less regrets. You are forced to leave the feast but you are not missing much. The feast is dying and will be soon over. You lived through the best parts of it, you had your fun and were not forced to pay for it so ...

Pussies. Start cutting already.

Did you know the retirement age can be as low as 50 in Greece, when it's 63-67 in most other parts of Europe.

So creditors of Greece are basically subsidizing early retirement by the greeks.

Creditors? But creditors provide money, not goods.

People who should be tired of providing for the others are people who provide goods against money to the Greeks. They are the ones at the wrong end of the deal. Not creditors, not Greeks.

And there is free lunch. When people can drop waterfalls of credit without bothering whether or not people yielding goods against the newly emitted credited will be able to buy something in the future, that is free lunch.

Dont play the victim because you are part of the world who is emitting tons of credit. Does not fit.

I would like to add by saying the following.

 

Creditors have a responsibility in the investments they make. Bond investors holding Greek paper have ignored the fact that the country's DEBT/GDP has been hovering around 100% for the last 10 years.

 

Second, the EU has inflated the moral hazard issue by repeating again and again that no country in the EU will or an default.

 

Third, Germany is actually instigating Greece to default by the stand they have on the issue. They don't want to fork up any money, but at the same time they want Greece to continue paying its creditors (aka German and French Banks).

 

Lastly, Germany's stand can probably be attributed to the fact that perhaps they want Greece to default! I mean, what the use in helping Greece with 10 billion euros and having them default anyway?

 

Its probably much better to write a check to German banks after such a default (probably 10-20 billion) and have the mess cleaned up, than to prolong the saga and have the whole of the EU under siege for a a decade or so.

When you owe a little, the creditor is in charge - when you owe a lot, you are in charge.  Especially if the debt is insecured.  Now, repossession efforts in the nature of military incursions may be suggested as a means of seizing Grecian assets for the benefit of the banks, but I don't see that happening - can you see an auction for some old urns and the Parthenon on eBay?  Seems to me, on balance, Greece does very well deliberately defaulting its debt, reviving the drachma, allowing the underground economy to continue to thrive and keep folks fed, clothed and in ouzo, and tell the rest of the EEU to f*** off.  The bankers must be shitting themselves at this possibility. Sovereign default is the most interesting default of all.

Let's make this simple.

Greece is not alone.

The political systems are flawed in the sense that in all the democracies whereby there are public elections, without any exceptions, the politicos always garner votes by promising to deliver benefits that must come from the voting population.

This tying of the right to the "tax coffers" for a brief stint of time, simply allows for one to allocate today and be gone tomorrow when it's time to really pay the tab.

The solution is simple.

Everyone who can write on the back of an envelope knows that taxes are just one of the input costs to goods and services. The higher the taxes, the higher the prices.

If one wants to be competitive in the long run, one must dissolve the current political structure which allows for hit and run economics.

One simply needs to make an allocation of the tax portion of prices, to never exceed ie 15% of the end prices of all goods and services.

Thus in effect, the democracy can play all it wants with the 15% as to what portion of the 15% goes where, but this amount can not be exceeded.

This is a globalized world, and when one examines governments all over the world, one will note tax rates varying from 10% to 70% depending on the country.

What really should be happening is a worldwide agreement on democracy structure, and a 15% cap on the tax portion of prices.

 

Otherwise the race to the bottom will continue as usual.

The human propensity to spend overides all, until it just simply can no longer happen.
