    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

The Ultimate World Economic Scorecard

Tyler Durden's picture


When you are out this evening at your cocktail party, discussing the state of the world, how everyone should be buying GOOG on the dips, how AAPL looks cheap (and the mini-iPad is coming soon), all that cash-on-the-sidelines, and how sentiment is so low; perhaps this handy little global economic scorecard will help bring a sense of reality back to the conversation. Barclays' Julian Callow provides everything you need to know about financial balances and economic performance (but were afraid to look) in one handy table.

He thinks US gross debt is only going to go up 7% points in 5 years while we are running 6-7% deficits per year right now?

Actually, the Peruvian Sol is up over 25% vs. the US$ over the past two years...

But, the LAST time the New Sol was worth 1,000,000 Soles (before).  I still have one.

Hey, you could live here with me in Canada and be leveraged 210% in the derivatives market that can't ever be paid back in 300 years.


Plus have the highest personal debt load in the world and our government is just full to the brim with complete morons running the country into the ground.  Not your run of the mill morons.  Complete morons.


Peru > Canada in terms of wealth, we pissed ours away on iPads and crap.

Nice chart...need the anti-BLS fudge factor to account for under-reporting so multiply the numbers on this chart by 1.2x.  Thing that jumps out is that the US will have 3% avg GDP growth in the next 5 years when the rest of the world is around 1%...how is that going to happen unless the Bush tax cuts are not only forestalled but are increased?

USA = epic fail

We spend too much damn money killing people and feeding people that have no business being alive.

Warfare/welfare states are too fucking expensive and we cant afford it anymore.

Perhaps it is simply your use of English that has me confused, but if people "have no business being alive", wouldn't killing them be the right thing to do?

How's that cognative dissonance of yours doing?

Allow me to clarify:

We spend trillions of dollars waging war to kill people with bombs and bullets.

We spend trillions of dollars feeding people that are unable to feed themselves.

Both are a massive waste of money.  Im not opposed to killing.  Im opposed to waste, dysfunction, inefficiency, laziness, and corruption.

Glad to clear it up for you.

Zap Powerz,

We spend trillions of dollars feeding people that are unable to feed themselves.

That IMHO is ok if we could afford it still, if they are UNABLE.

Where the MAIN issue is, is WE do the same thing with people WHO can,but wont,because of the freebies.(USA)

Warfare/welfare states are too fucking expensive and we cant afford it anymore.


Yep, warfare, and WORLD welfare states....................we go into Iraq, liberate them,lose 3000+ American lives, and pay for reconstruction, get ZERO oil,and they are angry with us because we have not fulfilled a BS part of the agreement.

MEANWHILE, they make pacts with Russia, and China,selling them their oil,and letting them into the country.

That is a Lose/ Lose deal if ever was one.

NO foreign agreements should pass muster w/out US determining if it's not hurting us, and helping enemies, and we should have kept a military presence there, as long as it took, to make sure it did not happen.(since we went in where we should not have to begin with).

"We" (the United States) are about to do it again in Afghanistan - get nothing for the precious blood and treasure we have spent in that Islamic shit hole. The difference being that Afghanistan has metals rather than oil. The Chinese will mine those metals, including the rare-earth metals, and turn them into iJunk to sell to us.

The 3.0% 2012-17 GDP growth for the U.S. is the "Waldo" on the chart. 

Also, it's really not complete without the Egan Jones ratings.

Won't have to worry about 'Palestine' ever being on a list like that because pretty soon there won't be one...

Netanyahu is legalizing the plunder of Palestine. These unjust social and property attacks by Israel and the U.S. upon Palestinian liberty are pure evil.

Utilizing the dumb muscle of Uncle Sam, Netanyahu is socializing against individual man’s natural right to defend his person, his liberty and his property – destroying the equal rights of the some to protect the plunder of others.

As uruknet.info writes and you cite: “Israeli media sources reported that Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, intends to submit a proposal for 'legalizing' illegal Israeli settlement outposts, built on privately-owned Palestinian lands in the West Bank.

“Netanyahu will soon be submitting the proposal to his ministerial council. Once approved, illegal and irregular Israeli settlement outposts in the occupied West Bank , including in and around occupied East Jerusalem, will be considered 'legal’ under Israeli law and will start receiving services from the government.”

Israel, aka the U.S., is using law to destroy its own objective, to annihilate the justice that it was supposed to maintain.

For what is law but, according to Frederic Bastiat, "the common force, organized to act as an obstacle to injustice. In short, law is justice.”

Writing in “The Law" during and after the French Revolution of 1848 when France was rapidly turning to complete socialism, Bastiat said:

“The existence of persons and property preceded the existence of the legislator and his function is only to guarantee their safety.”

Unfortunately, what America inflicts abroad with impunity upon the Palestinian people via her surrogate Israel, she now is encouraged to inflict at home .What goes around, comes around. Without law, without "the collective organization of the indilvidual right to lawful defense," man cannot defend his person, his liberty, or his property.
