Slow death collapse, eventually liquidation of the non-performing liabilities... come back in a generation or two. 

"And nobody cares."

Caring has nothing to do with it, all the "care" in the world is not going to change the Math to keep the system going.   The caring should have taken place when your parents or grandparents started yet another system based on usury thinking the result was going to be different.

The market is doing exactly what it is suppose to be doing. 

- Expand

- Peak

- Fail to expand

- Collapse <-- you are at the very beginning process of this

- Liquidate

- Stupid lemmings have a choice, they pick the same choice thinking the end result is going to be different... rinse and repeat

I laugh, you guys are crying now, wait till you guys are liquidating one another.

Mako, who are the "you guys" you refer to?

Every time an asset goes through one of my put strikes, I turn the volume up.

Clearly you're catching the "I'm not swimming in the (same) cesspool you are" vibe from Mako. Wait until you see one of his posts where he refers to "you humans" using the "above it all" tense. Which leads us all to rightfully assume Mako is one of those lizard people David Icke talks about. It might explain the bag over his head. :>)

I care.  Show me criminal indictments from top (banks, securitization, Fannie & Freebie) to borrowers with "inflated incomes".

USA - prosecution for sale.

Mako's picture

That is not the reason you are here and will have no impact on the final conclusion.

Widowmaker's picture

Could you please clarify, Mako?

Mako's picture

Your system is based on the false assumption that supply and demand can increase exponentially long-term.  Everyone is running from the Truth.  Eventually the Truth is going to catch up to you. 

If you lock up all the criminals, there would be nobody to lock the door.

There is nothing that can be done, the only thing that can be done is not to start the same foolish system up next time.   The final result has been known, just like the last time, and the time before that.

The market is doing exactly what it was designed to do... which is peak and collapse.  I fail to see why everyone is so suprised.

Mako: I have suspected for some time that you are some type of mole. Your use of "usury" instead of debt and "your system" instead of "our system" is beginning to confirm my suspicion. I know that many public forums in the US have been invaded by islamist and socialist elements in order to confuse the masses and get them to question their opinions.It looks like that strategy has now found its way to ZH, as well.

Mako's picture

Yeah, I am part of a huge conspiracy.  It's "our" system because you believe the lie.  I assure you if everyone was like me the system would crease to exist.  You can believe whatever you want to believe.   You are free to do whatever you wish to do, not much I can do to stop you.  I can tell you the end result of any system based incorrect assumptions in this case... Good luck to ya.

As you are probably aware, plans for the
development of the outlying regions of the
galaxy involve the building of a
hyperspace express route through your star

...and, unfortunately, your planet is one
of those scheduled for demolition. The
process will take slightly less than two
of your Earth minutes. Thank you.

There's no point in acting all surprised
about it. The plans and demolition orders
have been on display at your local planning
office in Alpha Centauri for fifty of your
Earth years, so you've had plenty of time
to lodge formal complaints.

Our system worked fine, too, until a certain someone ate the fairy cake.

Mako's picture

You have to love the infinite improbability drive.  :)  Nice one.

Not to mention spending a year dead for tax reasons. Maybe I should change my name to Hotblack Desiato.

Hephasteus's picture

Ah the good old possum fu tax evasion scam. Good times. Good times.

TraderTimm's picture

That explains the screeching car wreck charts have become. Thanks to HFT's playing paddy-cake with each other, they're merely trying to make price pass through all possible points at once.

"Powered by Price Improbability Drive" is more like it, lol

"Mako: I have suspected for some time that you are some type of mole. Your use of "usury" instead of debt and "your system" instead of "our system" is beginning to confirm my suspicion."


Uh, yeah, that was a pretty big tell.  We should get a game of texas hold 'em going around here.

Mako is just a guy with no faith in the people, not even the few that do understand our system is screwed...and would like to change it.  Apparently, everyone on this Earth is fvcked in his opinion and from what I gather, humanity will not survive.

We know compound interest and the way our economy is currently run encourages exponential growth in a finite resource world...WE GET IT.


Mako's picture

"Mako is just a guy with no faith in the people"

The act or acts have already been committed, my faith or lack of faith in people have no bearing on the end results which will be coming down the pike.  There is a result of choices previously made, not much I can do about it.

"humanity will not survive"

Never once predicted that.   Of course that is always a possibility.  I have no evidence that humans will be here forever, I suspect one day humans will not be on this floating rock.  I have no idea when that will be.

Either way, the system is doing exactly what it was designed to do.  Not much you are going to do to stop it.   Kind of like throwing yourself in front a train in the hopes you will slow it down.  Good luck kiddo I am pulling for you.

schoolsout's picture

You allude to nobody coming out of this in most every one of your posts...

You say "Kind of like throwing yourself in front a train in the hopes you will slow it down.  Good luck kiddo I am pulling for you."


Just what in the hell are you talking about?  What train am I throwing myself in front of?  I'm doing my damnedest to get the fvck out of  the way.


Give it up, dude.  We know what angle you are taking.  I think most of us agree with you that we are fvcked because of past policies/choices.  Some of us are trying to prepare. We could be right, we could be wrong....what the fvck are you doing about it?

Mako's picture

Not much I can do about "it".  Hopefully, I can pound some sense into a few lemmings not to do this again.  I predict I will fail in my hopes.  Either way, it should be fun.

I am not the one writing articles about "caring" and thinking "caring" for a system that is designed to imploded is even relevant.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Not much I can do about "it".  Hopefully, I can pound some sense in the a few lemmings not to do this again. I predict I will fail in my hopes.  Either way, it should be fun.

And there it is in black and white text. Mako's abusive tone is inflicted upon the ZH Community because it's fun and he speaks with the same justification and attitude as all abusive personalities aka school yard bullies. He tries to temper the obvious by saying "Hopefully, I can pound some sense in a few lemmings not to do this again" which is the swan song of all abusive people. "I'm beating the shit out of you for your own good. Now shut the fuck up while I beat you."

"It's not me, it's you because you're slow, stupid, dumb, ignorant, ugly and vulnerable and I can beat the shit out of you because I want to and I like to." The very fact that Mako sees it as his responsibility to "pound some sense in the few lemmings" shows his benevolent attitude to those he's pounding away on.

And of course it's done on the ZH web site where the abused understand for the most part how their government and the powers that be are already abusing them. In other words, abuse is only effective if the abused knows s/he is suffering the abuse and thus cries out in pain.

Sorry Mako but your Idi Amin personality disorder is on display in all its glory.

Mako also predicted some time ago that because of "the math" agricultural production in the U.S. would sink to zero - not just decline but disappear altogether.

Moe Gamble's picture

Nonsense. Mako's talking simple math, and he's right. Amazing how few people understand simple math.

Henry Chinaski's picture

Well said.

Yet the criterion of truth is that it works even if nobody is prepared to acknowledge it.

Mako's picture

They are all running from the Truth.  As soon as the masses acknowledge the Truth, a huge hole will open underneath the feet of the lemmings.   Unfortunately, for the lemmings the Truth is catching up to them.

Either way they are going down the pit.

Hansel's picture

There is no absolute truth Mako.

Pladizow's picture

I agree - It is "absolutely true" that Mako is a douche!

Mako's picture

Could be, at least I smell ok. :)

Either way the final result is set in stone.

I am pulling for all you lemmings.  Watching you run is quite entertaining, can't wait to see the fireworks.

MichaelG's picture

Put a sock in it, mate.

Hephasteus's picture

Too bad he's right. It's a fraud. A fraud has a beginning a middle and an end. It continues to run until it exhausts itself of believers. Just as a powerful engine continues to run until it exhausts itself of fuel. They don't call it getting burned for nothing.

Argueing with it won't help. Until people are tired of being gasoline nothing can put the fire out.

MichaelG's picture

I wasn't arguing.  I think most people here get it, and basically agree.  So, we're not learning anything, and as a result constantly being called a lemming becomes rather tiresome.  (And I'm not even a lemming - more of a bacterium on a flea on a lemming, if anything.)

RockyRacoon's picture

The lemmings aren't here.  They don't read ZH.  Mako's attempts to "help" them will do no good here.   Go to the Yahoo boards and find yourself some lemmings.

Hephasteus's picture

Ya. I said he was right about the issue. I didn't say that he wasn't completely disconnected from who or where he was being right.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Exactly. Mako is here to abuse and nothing more. See my comment above.

MichaelG's picture

Said comment was spot on (and incidentally made me feel better, so thanks!).

MichaelG's picture

Rocky - Your first three sentences mirror the point I was attempting to make (badly).  So I hope your final sentence wasn't aimed at me.  My 'bacterium' comment was intimating that when an entire cliff collapses, it doesn't matter if you would have blindly jumped off it or not, you still plummet.  Some of us can't afford guns, gold and a farm in an inaccessible location!  I'm glad some can, though! - they will be important when TSHTF.

RockyRacoon's picture

No. Sorry about the misplaced comment.  I was just piling-on.  You got squished in the melee.

MichaelG's picture

Safe.  "Squished in the melee" - there's a forward-looking statement if ever I saw one!  :)

Pladizow's picture

Take it easy "Rothschild", and come down from the 2" pedestal you think you are on.

By partaking in this silly banter, you include your self as one of the heard.

Arguing the contrary would be futile and an admission.

There is no absolute truth Mako

Hansel, Does that include your statement?

Slartebartfast's picture

I always preferred turkeys to lemmings.  They run from one side of the cage to the other trying to avoid the axe, yet all somehow end up as dinner.

Im interested to hear your thoughts on risk vs. fraud.

Risk is not bad, it's when it is combined with fraud that has my attention.

You make a good point that illustrates the symptom, if everyone is committing fraud (or breaking laws for the edge) is that what you mean by participating?

Committing fraud itself is a risk, no?  Shouldn't prosecution to deal with fraud naturally effect risk?  How is fraud-risk priced into the market (or not)?
