Chart Of The Day: The Rise Of Global Central Planning

Tyler Durden's picture


There was a time when the world had (somewhat) free markets. Then Lehman failed as the inevitable culmination of a credit bubble that was second in size and severity only to the one being blown currently, and the central planners took over, converting equity, bond and FX markets into nothing but monetary policy tools dominated by central banks. Below is a great summary of how parallel to SkyNet's HFT takeover of stock trading, the central planners conducted their own not so stealthy take over of all capital markets. The chart is open-ended. Expect much more intervention by the Big 4 in the months and years ahead as the circular nature of increased central bank intervention leading to less faith in financial markets leading to increased private sector deleveraging leading to increased-er central bank intervention and so on, accelerates.

Meet the 4 unelected dictators of the no longer even pretending to be free "developed" world.

Yes, but they are predictable and you can make money off of anything that is predictable. So, place your bets on incompetence and arrogance (the Fatal Conceit).

Part of Obama's plan t help the middle class. He said so during the debate, which I didn't watch. Raising gasoline prices will force more and more people onto public transportation, saving money and resulting in cleaner air. Win-win!

I've noticed that oil spikes everytime the banksters anticipate a collapse of some kind. Like before the financial crisis. Its a raping before the pillage. Some one call the police. Arrest them.

WHY is it so goddamned hard to take out the $%^& TRASH?!? EVERYONE needs to vote out incumbents... JFC. Same tick-bastards will be sucking next year and ever after until The Body is dead.

Instead of 'I Voted" stickers - people need to make the pledge and don a "I Voted AGAINST" sticker..
