    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

I didn't actually read any of this, but come on! How can you not make money in this environment? This is just another greenlight.

Lose 30 lbs. by just taking a pill, look 20 years younger by just eating this green superfood, increase your intelligence by 15% just by watching this next video, have women fall all over you by just wearing this cologne and make money in the stock market just by buying stuff through your e-trade account.

.....it's easy in America.  Prosperity is an entitlement.

'Harny Wanger' - good one!  But you might want to add a <sarcasm> tag,  otherwise its easy to mistake you for the real Harry Wanger

That was a double take for me too. With the flag icon, I just assumed it was our favorite troll. Too funny Harny!

yeah, the lead-in a perfect set-up "I didn't actually read...."

Who else besides HairyWang thinks everything is dandy-- or wait! Maybe HairyWang is shitting us and he is a PLANT!

The entire developed banking system is completely bankrupt but the 'system' keeps pushing it. The game is so obvious that i really don't understand why people still get into this trap.

His bonus will no doubt be HUGE. After all, this note will have enabled them to take the other side of the trade in size..........same as ever.

Whch means they probably shorted it, right.

Don't see why that would be a big surprise.

After all, you are talking about a banker's suggestion.

that's right. if anyone is stupid enough to listen to goldman, then they get what they deserve. goldman makes 70% of its profit from trading, yet people still refer to them as an investment bank. when was the last time they actually raised capital for a business? they're really a hedge fund.

Your goldman coverage is getting mixed reviews by the ZHeeple.

I think they feel apathy toward the squid, his armor has proven battle ready.

Please discuss.

Can't see the full report.  Anyways, this is about as useful as economic advice from Sarah Palin.  When situations such as these come to light, financial valuation models go out the window.


This is all political, and there is no way to determine what political actions will occur due to this 'nationalizing' of the Irish banks.



Whoops, was I not supposed to say that, lol ?

Was this the same Bank of Ireland that passed the stress test in July of 2010?   Four months ago?

No no.  This is the 'Bank of Direland'.  The other one is 'Allied Dire-ish Banks'.



Totally different.

i don't see why it hasn't been suggested here before that if they formed a trade block with iceland they could corner the worlds fish and chip market.

My latest video: OMG Bank - Just Give Us Your Money

The video is somewhat related to the Ireland ordeal.

u can never have enough of SCAMs...global economy is increasingly looking more like a global casino...look at this housing scam:


and the stock markets sold off on the news :


everyones complaining about the middle class getting ripped off....but this is why the poor wil always be POOR:




According to Supreme Court of India , 2G spectrum allocation scam is the MOTHER of all scams:



and then the Commonweath games corruption investigations have just begun:






and when the global reset comes and the 3rd world is left on their own , i have no idea how the people are going to manage

 Mohamed El-Erian of PIMCO has advised his sister that she should withdraw all her money out of the Irish banks! Posted at businessinsider.com "El-Erian: "What You Advise Your Sister In Ireland Now Is That You'd Say Take Your Money Out Of Irish Banks."

When the manager of the worlds largest bond fund says that - WOW!

It seems they're planning very stringent fiscal measures and yet they expect the economy to grow against that background. That seems highly unlikely.............Everyone, everywhere have become LIARS
