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)

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 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.

I was able to find this site.

http://www.goldmansachsexposed.blogspot.com

 

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.

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.

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.

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.

I mean no disrespect in asking this question, but do you think it matters where our president is from, or who he is?

I only ask this because i feel as though the whole issue is simply a distraction. While my comment was made in jest, (although i do believe he was born outside the U.S.) it seems many of us are wrapped up in this and other distractions.

I think of that whole issue in this way.

The intent of the law preventing non-US citizens from becoming president is to defend from previously held national loyalties.  If someone is raised in the US with loyalties to only that country should it really matter if they were born and lived for a day, week, month, year in another country? 

Now the true loyalties that is a different issue and so is hiding the fact that someone may be born elsewhere.

O/T

I had the honor of seeing a film yesterday about a Marine MSGT who lost his daughter because DoD covered up the water contamination at Lejeune. I don't know which branch you were in, but if you were at Lejeune I beg you to at least get checked out. I dont write this next bit so you will see the film, more so you will see why I would bring this up on a message board.

I talked with the MSGT after the film, and the man is cut from a different cloth. He took on the feds for 14 years with no support from anyone, and just the loss of his daughter to propel him. He has now exposed the cover up and saved countless peoples lives because of it.

There was a question and answer segment after the film and having served two tours as an R/O in iraq i told him i thought i knew what bravery was, but after seeing his fight, i felt like an ant in the presence of a god.

He told me, "if you believe in something, dont ever give up" and it seems like a cliché until you hear it from a man who had the sand to follow his own advice.

Please get checked out if you served and were stationed at Lejeune

if you interested in the movie, here is an article about it.

Christians suck the same god's ass that the ay-rabs and jooze do.  They just misspell His name a bit differently.  Jehovah=Allah=YHWH.  God just has different agents/mouthpieces, and different flavours (and odors) of feces, in each.

The Garden of Eden has been superseded by ZH as the place where knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life may be found.  Rejoice ye sinners.

perfect place to drop a nuclear bomb with all the Bishops and Cardinals gathered there right now

the problem with your statement and the video you posted is that only a few are willing to invest time to examine the underlining research (i.e. here:  http://tinyurl.com/dfztye ) and effort to educate.  You're being junked by peasants who want to remain serfs w/o examining who their owner and master is.  At least negro slaves knew who ran their lives and whose property they were.

Sun, 05/01/2011 - 10:04 | 1225309 Texas Gunslinger

This response is in regards to "Michael's" (Satan?) post about killing innocent people!

I cannot believe that someone could actually wish for a nuclear bomb to be dropped on a bunch of innocent people! The level of evil here is more than I originally estimated. There is a reasonable chance that this post from "Michael" is really the personification of Lucifer, himself.  Yes, that's right, the DEVIL HIMSELF!  We all know that, occassionaly, the devil manifests himself in the human world as another human, to try to snatch our souls through trickery and deceit. Or maybe this post is straight from hell? The avatar does look fishy! Is there anyway to track the IPS numbers? 

Michael, if you are in fact a "real person," I do not think that I can save you at this point. Either you ARE THE DEVIL, or the devil has firmly nested in your heart.  And I don't do exorcisms, and neither does my pastor.  If the devil has nested in you heart, this cannot be exterminated by normal Christian representatives like me, for it is beyond my human capabilities to handle.  This is something that you must handle with the Lord directly.

ATTENTION ALL ZERO HEDGE MEMBERS:  be very cautious with this avatar named "Michael." This could very well be Satan, himself.

Ok, now about silver:  knowing that the Bank of Japan has now printed one quadrillion dollars, I am raising my price projection for silver to $105-$135, until further notice.  I will be speaking with my coin dealer this afternoon and will report everything he says later tonight. 

God bless the USA.

I guess it boils down to what your interpretation of "Innocent" is.

Texas, are you taking a prescription called Quetiapine?

The statement you made about not being able to "save" Micheal worries me, do you fell you can save people?  What other powers do you have?  The pejorative " may God save your sole"  would work better.      " may I save your sole" sounds funny doesn't it?

Sun, 05/01/2011 - 10:57 | 1225400 Texas Gunslinger
Texas Gunslinger's picture

I need to be clear on this!

I've "saved" hundreds of people from a fate of hell, misery and despair!  In fact, in my church, I rank number 3 in the number of souls saved.  First is my pastor.  Second is is wife. Third is me. This is something that I'm very proud of.  

And no, I do not do the actual "saving." I make them aware that their life is full of sin.  I introduce them to the love of Christ and His teachings. The person makes a commitment to Christ, and then Christ enters their heart.  Now, the person is "born again," and their life becomes drastically more peaceful and balanced.  Then I get "credit" for the save. After I save 777 people, I get certified by our regional Baptist leader and I'm given a special robe to wear at all Baptist functions in Texas.  

I have spoken with my pastor yesterday, and told him about Zero Hedge. Even though this website would need the work of multiple evangelicals, he is confident enough in my abilities to give the entire account to me because of my knowledge of precious metals! THAT IS A HUGE HONOR!  Because of that, I will probably surpass the 777 before year's end, which is 3 years ahead of schedule.

Really, though, my most important objective to help bring happiness to people's lives, so even if I don't save a few hundred here at Zero Hedge, hopefully I can bring some peace to a few people and broom the evil spirits from here.

I guess the real question is whether you can save SATAN.

Just think, if you could save satan then you would definitely move to the front of the line of soul savers since all souls appropriated by satan would in effect be saved at the same time.

Was God American? Did you ask for his birth certificate? Who has been brainwashing you into this caricature of a person that you come accross like? While you talk this pseudoreligious crap, you have the balls of stating: God bless the USA? Do you remember who relentlesly incinarated children with Napalm in Vietnam and elsewhere? Do you remember who blasted into nothingness hundreds of thousands of Japanese? Who leveled entire cities in Germany while bitching about the Luftwaffe bombing british cities but letting them without a single complaint level out Guernica into oblivion?

I do not know whether or not there is a God and neither do you. But that part of my midbrain that responds to what is basic in nature tells me that somewhere underneath, there is some "go(o)dness somewhere , and that certainly has nothing to do with any of the crap you mention. That part knows that greed, money, the State, Power, the political machinery, parliaments, kings, capitalism, communism, all ism's, will not scape destruction, because they are nothing but tears in the rain, like the tears shed by some idiot like you after watching a "lifetime" movie
