It's The Chart, STUPID

Tyler Durden's picture

With every Tom, Dick and Harry convinced they can take on Goldman's Jim O'Neill and come up with a wittier, edgier, Gen Y/Z BRIC equivalent, Zero Hedge has decided to join the fray. We present the STUPIDs: Spain, Turkey, UK, Portgual, Italy and Dubai. We admit that while the BRICs and some the other more ridiculous sounding acronyms we have seen out there recently are a gauge into various countries' pent up "growth" potential, the STUPID index is merely a countdown to the inevitable sovereign debt implsion that so far has been postponed due to cash printers working on overdrive 24/7. And to make it simple for the armchair acronym specialists, since the index is in CDS, the chart will go up... but not on the pervasive permabullish sentiment.

STUPID index is more than a countdown to the inevitable implsion sovereign debt until now has been postponed due to effective printers working in overdrive 24 / 7. And to make it easy for armchair experts acronym, because the index is in the CDS, the graph will go up ... but not in the general sense permabullish.\] canada pharmacy

Banks overseas are typically much more innovative.In the west banks think they’re being innovative when they get a Twitter account.In Asia you can sign up for the next big IPO from an ATM.You can send a worldwide wire transfer from your mobile.You can denominate accounts in different currencies and precious metals.

I tend to agree on the innovation levels of overseas banks. It's certainly time for domestic banks to start mimic the creativity of foreign banks when it comes to bringing great services to its customers. The domestic banks need to bring their ideas out of their golden labs and right in front of the public, in form of new and exciting mix of services. Eventually they will be forced to do it.

The clock is ticking, and no printing press will save the European banking system when the time comes. Wonder if goppers will manage to tear down the house of cards before it collapses by itsef. If it were not a tragedy, it would be just hilarious.

You should use to buy Facebook fans as well as twitter fans. We purchased some Facebook fans and we are quite satisfied with the results. It is completely legal because the fans are real and they don't join your page until they check it and find it interesting.

I don't think so. As long as this chart gives the right data. Then I must agree that it can help other researchers to find their answers to most of their questions. Right now, I am making a blog about sacramento gynecomastia specialist and other related health topics.

I lost count of how many times I said to the Republicans and here in this blog today that the deficit was inherited from George Bush. It was not something that Barack Obama created. When I say these things to my Republican friends is like talking to a wall. That kind of recognition, but then right will say something about how it really was not until Democrats took back Congress in 2011 made the deficit actually place. Really crazy. They refuse to believe that Republican policies led to this country to a large budget deficit. In fact, jogos de carros jogos de motos jogos da barbie jogos do mario windows 8

Actually, i don't know how i didn't think of it above, but the STUUPID PIIGS would roll-up fairly nicely to that great 70's memory,the Organization of Fuel Using Countries, which can't be more than one oil crisis away, so we can re-start it now and bet against ourselves in the swaps market with the BRICS on the other side of the trade as the S Debt funding mechanism. Problem solved. For a few more years at anyway.
