Japan Resumes Hyprintspeed Part 2: Presenting.... One QUADRILLION

Tyler Durden's picture

Part 2 of our "Japan resumes hyprintspeed speed" series comes courtesy of The Privateer's Bill Buckler who has discovered that quadrillion is the new black.

The latest projections from the Japanese Finance Ministry regarding the fiscal year which started on April 1 make for sobering reading. They say that Japan’s “public” (funded) debt will probably rise by 5.8 percent this year - to 997.7 TRILLION Yen ($US 12.2 TRILLION at current exchange rates). Should these projections be even slightly on the optimistic side - and government financial projections always are - then Japan could easily be looking at a public debt of 1,000 TRILLION Yen by March 31, 2012.

There is another way of expressing 1,000 TRILLION. It is the same as ONE QUADRILLION.

The sheer magnitude of these numbers has long been a talking point for the watchers of international finance. Now, they are becoming very nervous indeed. The OECD has recently “urged” the Japanese government to “do something” about their deficits, especially in the wake of the earthquake disaster. Noting that Japanese sovereign debt is about to hit 204 percent of GDP, they suggested that Japan’s current sales tax be “at least” doubled from its present 5 percent to 10 percent. The Japanese Foreign Ministry politely declined to comment on this suggestion, contenting themselves with assuring the OECD that - “We will continue to work to maintain and secure trust in Japanese government bonds.”

At this, a line from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead comes to mind: "Eternity's a terrible thought. I mean, where's it all going to end?" While this has been mostly a rhetorical question over the ages, G7 central planners are set to provide a definitive answer very soon.

(and people worry about the "bubble" in precious metals)

I would bet my ass Bernanke, Geithner, Blankfine, Dimon and so on are also deeply christians... since they are doing Gods work

Texas Gunslinger's picture

Blankfein is actually a Jew, and works for a bank called Goldman Sacks.  You probably haven't heard of it since they don't have national branches, but it is probably the single most evil institution on Earth (besides Kentucky Fried Chicken). I have to run now, but you (and everyone here) should Google "Goldman Sacks" and you will be amazed at what goes on at that institution!  They are uncommonly wicked given their small size and many have suggested they are largely responsible for much of the financial chaos that has occurred worldwide!  Not just the USA.

And, what sort of name is Blankfein?  Hint: not Christian.  He even was quoted once as saying he was doing "Banking for the Lord" which should be an instant clue that he is infested with the spirit of the DEVIL.

I'd bet my account balances you are neither a Texan, nor a gunslinger. C'mon, prove me wrong.

Texas is tiresome anti-semite troll, not even clever writing. Go back to waste your time on Yahoo boards.

Texas troll, this is what is from bible. "You cannot serve God and Money." (Matthew 6:24) See also Luke 16:13)

better sell your silver.

Am I an anti-semite if I point out the basis for support of Obama, the media, Hollywood, the Fed and banking companies  is  SOROS, Geithner, Emanuel, Summers, Nusbaum, Berger, Eisenstat, Axelrod, Rouse, Lew, Steinberg, Orszag, Shapiro, Suthpen, Sunstein, Ratner, Browner, Stern, Bernanke, Moran, Berstein, Cohn, Warsh,  etc etc etc ....... enough for conjecture???  my bad!!!

Ah, "good cop bad cop" - you guys work together well.

I bet you get lots of people to waste their time and energy on your bullshit.

whstlblwr's picture

No, not anti-semite, just show ignorance with illogic argument. Basis of support? Christian list longer, you can look up yourself. Jewish people work banking, but corruption's equal religion employer. Distraction to make Jews the evil, takes away focus from real problem.

I googled "Goldman Sacks" and nothing came up. they must be pretty mysterious if they are not even on google.


Next time you try and peg a religions down with the actions of the few please go apologise to your parents for what a failure you have become.


I think your missing the 'poop'e being beatified...now there is an evil corporation.


At least the Banks show their real intention of stealing our money and don't hide behind a deity.

msamour's picture

you may had typed it wrong. I got About 20,000,000 results

(0.14 seconds) when I googled it. There is plenty about goldman sucks out there, and I am certain they are not too happy with some of the content.
In Fed We Trust's picture

I was able to find this site.



This obscure auther was able to prove that Goldman Sachs cornered the subprime market in 2008.  When they position, it would be enough to drag the market into a crash. 

As long as this little fact is never addressed, every other infraction by GS is fucking trival in the grand scheme of things.


Why Tyler chooses to focus on these trival issues instead of the conspriacy to crash the market thru subprime, seems to amaze me.

maybe google "Gold ManSachs", because that is what they have.

TG, please don't post here any more.  I'm a Texan and a Tea Partier and you make both groups look mind-numbingly stupid.

I don't know if you really are this dumb or if you're a liberal out to make Christians, Texans, and Tea Partiers look like idiots.

Either way, cut it with all the idiotic posts.

Ding, Ding, Ding! We have a winner!  If anyone doesn't understand TX Dungslinger is a troll they deserve to be offended.

He's the Christian version of Hamy. Don't be so easily fooled people.

greenbear's picture

Nothing Christian about TG.  More like "Christian" Identity.  Or Roman Catholic, the original "Christian" Jew-haters.  It's not possible for true Christians to hate the Jews.

d_senti's picture

Though apparently "true Christians" such as yourself can hate on us Catholics. There was a great deal of anti-semitism in the Western world for centuries. The Catholic Church's official positions, to most people's surprise, actually defended the Jews in many cases against the harsher elements of society. Not to mention that Pius XII pretty much bankrupted the Vatican to save Jews from the Holocaust.

And there are a disproportionate number of Jewish bankers compared to the size of their population. It's a cultural artifact from usury laws. Doesn't make it a conspiracy.

Don't be punked by this troll. (Save your valuable Replies for regular posters---not imposters.)

Signed, a fellow Tea Party reveler.


Absinthe Minded's picture

I'm with you. I actually defended this tool on an earlier thread but there is no way he is as naive as he seems. Man has this site gone off the rails. I miss the insight of CD with the abrasiveness of Chumba and the simplicity of Mere human. I feel like I've got to go through a dozen dopey comments before I get to any with substance. I guess it's called evolution but it seems to mirror our sad society. So much hateful chatter lately. I hope things change for the better. At least the articles are still great. Carry on Tyler, this is the only news I trust. Thanks for fighting for what's right

@Link The people who lump others into groups based on broad associations like geographical location or spiritual belief systems are unworthy of consideration Link don't be troubled by those you can't control just be what you are and let that speak for itself. Those who can hear truth will be able to tell you apart from gunslingers.

trav7777's picture

you are typical...highly clueless about the way ethnicity works in the upper crust and particularly in media or in finance.  TPTB love sheep like you.

I know you couldn't possibly know how or why this is true, but i think that is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me. Seriously, thank you for that comment.

Gold man sacks? Is that a new gold unit? how much gold is one god man sack?

FeralSerf's picture

It's a variable.  g=f(x).  The Gold Man decides sometime during each day (usually around 10AM, but this can vary as well),  how much gold is in the bag.  Lately not too much.  There's been talk of putting some tungsten in the bag so the bag won't seem empty to those without the proper tools to measure mass in nano or picograms.  Tungsten may prove to be too expensive for this.  Rocks may be used instead.

Buy rocks to protect your portfolio from inflation.  Rocks will always be worth something to those that want to get their rocks off.

How much more ignorant religious spam is this guy going to get away with posting before Tyler deletes his account & bans his IP? Who's selling CDS on this guy's account? I'd like to buy some.

augie's picture

Have you seen the posts that he generates? Why would tyler get rid of that? don't take him so seriously he's comic relief at a time when people really need to laugh in order not to cry.

FeralSerf's picture

I'm selling.  Send your dollar now.

Which part of "free speech" don't you understand? Go back to Denninger, if you want restricted speech.

If you can't learn to ignore trolls, you shouldn't even be on the internet!

Ok they have figured us out.  Time to knock it off for a while.  It is so strange talking to myself, but running 23 avatars gets hard sometimes.

I love the TEA party and still hate Jesus as much as any other retard zombie claiming to be more than human.

Satire is real hard to pull off around here, TG . . . regardless of how subtle you might be. 

You should stop using Christ's name in vain, imo.  It's unnecessarily disrespectful . . . even to this atheist. 

Texas Gunslinger's picture

I would fully expect a proud atheist to convince himself that Christianity and preaching about the Lord is satire.

Just like I think your godless life is probably an epic satire. 



TIMMAYYY's picture

In my personal opinion i think God went to  get some coffee. and whilst he was gone we fucked up everything and created christianity.


dam he is going to be mad when he gets back and smites your ass bitch.

davebrik99's picture

I sometimes wistfully think that God bought his Son an "ant farm"  for Christmas  (or whatever) and after awhile  He got tired of it and left it sit in a corner!   and here we are folks!  I'm a catholic.....sorta...

Dude, you remind me of Private Pyle from Full Metal Jacket. You first came here happy and dumb, looking for answers. Finally realizing you could never comprehend the answers given, you snapped and and are now slashing and burning from being deeply hurt.


We're just waiting now for you to eat the bullet.

I wonder if the Klepocrats who have brought America to its financial end are the prayerful God-fearing types, or if they're more likely a bunch a self-righteous Atheists so filled with hedonic greed and hubris that they were willing to sell-out their fellow citizens for their next bonus check?  Any takers from the ample supply of "I'm not a stupid Christian" crowd that frequents these streams? 

T.E.I.N. everyone!

Sancho Ponzi's picture

You aren't from Texas, nor are you a gunslinger. Away with you, troll.

Gold 36000's picture

Ok I will drop the gunslinger persona too, but you have to admit he was pretty good for a while and hooked a lot of you.  Can I still keep hamy going?

The harm that is being done by the Japanese libtards


I've met people like yourself who so want to believe that everything is on the up and up in the face of the complete opposite. Welcome to 1984 comrade. I think you've reached a point of disconnect in your brain.
