So, still no definition...

At this point might be easier to delineate what we don't have to take with a grain of salt.  Actually, can anyone name anything that we don't have to take with a grain of salt?

I'd say ATA truck tonnage and railfax reports.

Even with a definition, would you trust it? Not me.

When we get past this illusion that the govt. operates to protect the citizens of this country and realize they are corrupt, we will be making huge strides.

Next time CNBC covers the Davos summit, think of the definition of "Davos Men", which is a reference to the global elite:

" they have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the élite's global operations".

Transparency is the enemy to the financial oligarchy. All else tucks into this. The whole point is so you can't figure it out, much like "what's in the bag". We can't handle the truth!

Exactly.  You know they are desperate when they start messing with the definitions used in bond auctions.

Why change the definition?  Why not create another category?

Obfuscation at its best.

off topic and re-post, so please do not shoot me:


Tyler or Marla, who ever reads this first ... can you do something about tracking the responses to the comments we post ... it's a pain in the ass to keep going trough all the old posts to see if someone replied to our comments ... can you mix something up that would facilitate the tracking .... many times i engage in some sort of discussion with fellow posters and it's impossible for me to track all the responses i get on my comments ... so, if it wouldn't be a problem for you, please do something about that ... I'm not being ungrateful for all the things you have done, but this would really be an improvement ... something like copying a comment onto our profile and provide the number of responses we get for that comment ... something like Market Watch used to have ... if you do it, I'll send you  cookies and a free location for your server on the NYSE floor ... many thanks

Andy, do you have any idea how could i contact Marla or Tyler directly and send them this little request ... i can't find any e-mail addresses or nothing ... and i don't think they even noticed this ..

Kind of a play on words like for instance: Federal Reserve

A NON-Federal entity (parasite) that in fact has no 'reserves' to speak of, just an insurmountable IOU from the American taxpayer and a printing press running non-stop.

So now an indirect bid (which is really (counted as) a direct bid to the Fed) now includes "guaranteed bids received by primary dealers".


Tell me more about "guaranteed bids".  From whom? For what (USA bonds I guess), etc.


How are "USA dollars" being "routed" to in effect buy USA bonds?


Are we flying in ever decreasing circles until we fly up our own asshole?

All primary dealers of treasury bonds have a contractual obligation to be the buyer of last resort in bond auctions.

They have to place a minimum bid and even that bid is pre-determined.

To include this in the foreign purchsing ledger is corrupt to an unthinkable degree.

This is easily one of the biggest scams in history, we are talking about the collapse of our country under Bernanke's bailout and they drop their pants and take a shit right on the data and act like nothing happened.

Anonymous's picture

Can the numbers be reconstructed backwards i.e. subtract out the primary dealer 'dealer of last resort' contractual debt obligations from the overall number?

Hasn't somebody tried to do this?

There is no conspiracy afoot here. Please read this link to my blog.

The term moral obligations and treasury uttered in the same breath are really stretching it.

Hours upon hours of playing World of Warcraft has finally paid off. This makes perfect sense to me.

Well, you cannot monetize debt in the open, so you sell it with the right hand and buy it with your left hand, but your left hand needs a "glove".

With unlimited amount of printing or the new way now, just electronically crediting accounts, you can pay anything in the world that you want, the question is for how long.

And I don't think the Social Security fund or Medicare fund will ever be bankrupt. "We at the Treasury" cannot accept that, we will pay Social Security benefits also with COLA (of around 3-5% annual), but the problem will be that those Social Security payments will probably be enough to pay for a lottery ticket and maybe a 'red box movie' per month after the chinese, US and everyone else that holds greenbacks with some numbers and dead presidents start throwing them as fast as they can. Can anyone say what $1 with 62 zeros after is?

In 1990 there were 76 fragrance launches worldwide. In 2011, there were 1047 launches and, already this year, 500 new fragrances have been tracked by Erica Moore and her colleagues at Michael Edwards Fragrances of the World.

"Fragrance has become so commonplace, so acceptable now," Moore says. "You don't comment on or make assumptions about a man wearing fragrance. So many men are interested in it ... It's another form of self-expression and makes them feel more powerful and more liberated in the workplace."

She says younger men are more experimental in their choice of fragrance while their mature colleagues often wear something that makes them feel younger, a fragrance they might have worn in their mid-20s. Women's tastes tend to mature from their initial sweet, girly and fruity choices. They find a classic scent - for the office at least - and make it their signature. Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle and Dior's J'Adore have remained among the top five bestsellers for years.

"The prestige fragrances are non-polarising with an element of luxury," Moore says. "They make a woman feel like she's gone to a bit of extra effort." Chanel No.5 is consistently the No.1 fragrance in Australia, not only because of the brand association, Moore says, but because it's cleverly composed. "The top, heart and base transit through the stages of development seamlessly."

Turner says that the one in two men who are now choosing their own fragrances are making better informed decisions - "thinking of the occasion as well as the smell".

"Woody but fresh is a good choice for corporate men, nothing too musky," she says.

Women are more likely to wear a lighter fragrance - something "chic, fresh, citrusy to keep their energy levels up" - and bring another fragrance to wear out after work.

"There's not a lot of people still choosing the Angel type of confidence that gets to work before you do," she says. "But there are always people who want that, who want the office just to be filled with them." (Despite having it on tap, her colleagues have a "no-spray" policy for Thierry Mugler's Angel "unless you really hate your workmates that day," one says).

Trudi Sampola visits top firms as managing director of a media agency and says "there's quite a few girls with perfume on their desks and they'll give a little spritz before a meeting". Sampola says that wearing perfume "is to feel 'I'm finished, I'm ready to go'. It's part of preparing yourself for the outside world and giving yourself a boost to perform your best."

This year will see the launch of more than 1,400 new fragrances, encompassing offerings from couture houses, celebrities, fashion designers, and independent perfumers. Which will become classics—or even still exist a decade from now—depends on an uncertain alchemy; the average shelf life of a new scent is surprisingly short, with many being discontinued even before they reach their fifth anniversary.

“The FiFi Fragrance Hall of Fame celebrates the fragrances outlet that have shaped the landscape and stood the test of time,” says The Fragrance Foundation’s vice president, Mary Ellen Lapsansky. “They need to have been on the market for 15 years or more and represent the whole package—the bottle, the advertising campaign, the juice itself; everything needs to come together.”

From ck one to Chanel No. 5, these bottles encapsulate entire decades in a single spray. “Winning a FiFi Fragrance Hall of Fame Award is akin to getting a lifetime achievement Oscar,” says Givaudan’s Kate Greene. “People feel incredibly passionate about the honored 30. They are the trendsetters; they are part of our history.”

This year’s 40th anniversary FiFi Awards, hosted by Golden Globe-winning actress Jane Lynch, will take place May 21 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. Of the dozen scents in contention for The FiFi Fragrance Hall of Fame Award, a maximum of two (one men’s and one women’s) will receive the coveted prize. “A fragrance has to meet the gold standard,” says Lapsansky. Here are 10 that have made the grade, and made their mark on New York.

The divisive landmark scent, Angel packed a tight hit of chocolate and patchouli that reportedly had Bloomingdale’s shoppers racing to the bathroom to wash it off when it first appeared in the States in 1993. Now, 19 years later, it’s the sixth most popular fragrance in the US and is credited with starting the trend for food-inspired scents. A true labor of love, even the blue, star-shaped bottle took two years to refine. Angel, Thierry Mugler ($78). Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 Fifth Ave.,
