It's a given that we will sink into depression and the paper currencies will collapse. People should be concentrating on what they will do when that happens.
Check this out:
"For the first time since at least 2003, investors are fleeing the euro for currencies of countries that don’t depend on international capital markets to finance their budget deficits."
At the end of the day, isn't that pretty much every single government on the planet, or does pivotfarm still believe in the infinite growth model in the finite world?
This looks like a perverse game of Tetris. The next block to drop may not fit anywhere. There is no "Continue" option in this game.
The 2% ceiling for the gold manipulators will not be breeched today, as usual. The transparency is excellent; unlike in every other market move.
I don't see how the game of 'kick the can' ends well for sovereign and bank debt unlss there really is a Santa. Consumers haven't appreciably deleveraged either according to the Blackl Friday sales figures. The media still puts out this baloney that there are signs of recovery, which may be the case superficially, but not one problem has been solved. The Super Committee couldn't even cut a lousy $trillion when they needed to cut at least $15 trillion over the ten years. Everyone appears to be getting ready to party on like it's 1929.

And I am getting more serious in my consideration of marrying Pamela Anderson.
Or possibly Palmala Handerson.
They're following their leaders behind them.
On my small handheld screen I read the title of this post as: "Morning Euro Breakup Risk Seen by Banks".
Sigh. First time I've been happy in days...
