Guess Which Country The IMF Forecasts Will Grow The Most In 2016

Tyler Durden's picture


The IMF - known for its independence, thoroughness, and Keynesian multiplier fiascoes - is the go-to institution to back any bullish-scenario because one can always rely on any dip in data or markets to hockey-stick back to textbook trend. With that background, we thought it fascinating to see, as Bloomberg Brief notes, which European nation is expected to be the leading economy for the entire Eurozone in 2016. As a hint, in Q4 2012 its economy fell 5.7% YoY, and the nation's overall economy has shrunk 20% since the regression began in 2008. As a final hint, the nation's Finance Minister on Monday told The Guardian the nation was over the worst. We can only hope the 60%-plus of youth that remain unemployed are buoyed by these rosy projections.

This plan has already been put into action. Germany has been infiltrated by thousands of Greeks supposedly seeking work. In actual fact they are getting ready to overthrow Merkel, grab control of the Bundesbank and declare the drachma as the new European currency.

The Germans will be put to work to pay for overdue war reparations plus interest.

The Troika realized that turning the lights off on the Greeks who turned the lights on for the rest of the world to see, was not nice. Not only that, the Greeks threatened that they will turn the lights on once again for the rest of the world to see who the banksters are, did the trick.

Greece will be refloated to make a counter example and cover the banksters' tracks.

Pretty scary. They are going all the way out to 2016 and they don't expect more than 4 of the countries to have higher than 2.5% growth and 10 to have less than 2% growth. These numbers are not what recoveries are made of.

And coming from the IMF, we can easily divide all of these numbers by 4 or more to get the real estimates.

It actually makes sense and is quite possible.

By 2015 the Greek economy will have contracted to such a low level of GDP that even a tiny incremental improvement will look very impressive in percentage terms.

That is the 'american' school of economics.

The zimbabwean effort had this good it shed light on the fact that leading a policy wont get similar effects.

Bernanke is a successful man as the head of the FED. Put him in charge of the Zimbabwean central bank and his success story is over.

That is the way an 'american' world works.

Food for thought.


It can either stagnate or increase, that is a mathematical certainty.

In a fixed monetry regime of XIX century (Greece is not printing its own money), the economy would plunge so much post a banking crisis that at some point it would stop plunging!

During the Gret Depression a Wall Street broker sent a note to a client apologising that that the chart sent to him with the projections was incorrect and was sorry for any losses incurred.

The client sent a note back telling the broker not to worry becuse he accidentally examined the chart upside down and as a result did the opposite and made money.

I am wondering if we should do the same with this chart.

I would agree IF Greece were to leave the Eurozone and go back to the drachma.  It would be so weak against other the other currencies that visitors would get more for their money.  I have no idea why they don't just leave the Euro now.  Take their free money from the other countries and run.  But it would take more than until 2016 to get to that kind of growth.  2020 a little more realistic (if they did leave).  If they don't, they're screwed.

    I very much prefer the word "regression" over "recession" when referring to the state of our global economy Tyler. In fact I like it so much that I may adopt it as a replacement for "recession" ;-)

The Founding Fathers, FDR, JFK and Reagan would weep over America's leadership and political decay -- if they could.  They'd weep, like Jesus wept over Jerusalem (as he knew of its coming demise).

They would weep in joy after seeing how much 'americanism' has been successful in conquering the world.

The empire of liberty, funded out of debt, as envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

An 'american' success story.

Except for Communist China, of course --- their own unique and particularly pernicious brand of roadside-crapping citizenism has fouled the landscape and spreads its poisons into the atmosphere and oceans worldwide, contaminating the entire earth with their toxins and foul waste.

But no price is too high for Chinese citizenism consumptionalizing progress and greedy world resource blobbing-up.  Just ask the Tibetans (those who remain).

The Tibetans? Here, we are talking about a storm that is ravaging the entire world and the only retort 'americans' have is Tibetans.

'Americans' have written off future for billions of people on the planet. And the only thing they have to oppose is Tibetans.

For 'americans', the group is all. And indeed, in their 'american' eyes, a tibetan life is worth much more than another. This will keep going as long as they are not the ones coercing the tibetans.

The day 'americans' sit on the chair on the coercer of Tibetans, suddenly, the worth of a tibetan life will plummet.

Such are 'americans', as acted by their eternal nature.

Anti-American rambling eternal nature of Chinese cosmonaught AnAnonymystic are putting to my mind this Chinese Citizenism famous classic of days of glorious Cultural Revolvalutions fabled past, by group is all, Guess Hu:


Americanism woman, stay away from me
Americanism woman, roundeye let me be
Don't come blob-up around my door
I don't want your citizenism no more

I got more important things to do
Than save Tibetan 'foreign devils' with you
Now woman, I said stay away
Americanism woman, listen what I say

Americanism woman, get away from Mao
Americanism woman, eat a floating sow
Don't come wokkin' around my door
Don't wanna see your hygiene no more

Poisoned rice can hypnotize
Speeching means I can monolize
Now woman, I said get away
Americanism woman, listen what I say

The guy who made the chart is calling a bottom, after the bottom the only way is up. I think he is wrong, the worst is yet to come because all the bad debt must be worked out and nothing except monetization is being done.

We all seem to praise and respect the millions of immigrants who came to America for a better life -- to escape, oppression, persecution, hunger, poverty (and excessive taxation).  Then how is it that we cannot afford the same enthusiasm and respect for those who want to leave the US,or are advising us to leave -- for the same reasons?

Is it cognitive dissonance within you?  Is it some primal jealousy of not being able to do the same (for personal or financial reasons), and we are deflecting this jealousy?  Surely it cannot be 'national pride' -- not with all the disparaging comments having been made about the country and its populace, its leaders and politicians!

An emotional mirror is an ugly beast to look at sometimes, isn't it?

Enthusiasm and respect? The piece of advice is border line criminal.

'Americans' are duplicitous. They wont tell but keep acting. So one does not care about what they say or do not say.

The US is the mecca of 'americanism' on Earth and as put by an 'american' on here, is in the eye of the 'american' storm that is wreaking havoc throughout the world.

For 'americans', the group is all.

Quick example:
'Americans' might oppose the droning of 'americans' holding the US citizenship on the US ground. And they are quite supportive of droning US citizenship holders outside the US or non US citizen holders.

Anytime an 'american' advises another 'american' to leave the US, the another 'american' is exposed to be droned without any consideration.
Anytime an 'american' advises another 'american' to drop the US citizenship, the another 'american' is exposed to be droned without any consideration.

It is a con game. Fact is that you cant bamboozle 'americans' about 'americans'.

As to migration, as 'americans' put it, if you cant join them, beat them. If you cant beat them, join them.
This is an 'american' world and this alone will ensure that a lot of migratory pressure is applied on the US as people outside the US know that the best safeguard against 'americanism' is to go and live on the US soil. And this includes all the 'americans' who live outside the US.

Ummmm, minds other than 'american' minds might admit that typing on a keyboard and jerking at the same time must be kind of difficult.

But it is known that 'american' minds revel in wallowing in propaganda and fantasy so they have to dismiss the most obvious side of reality.

Such are the 'american' ways as 'americans' are acted by their eternal nature.

Ummm. minds other than insanitationalized Chinese Citizenism ananonymystics might admit that bigoted scapegoating of one nation of people for all of the world's ills, and kneejerk blameplacing of same while painting one's own authoritarian, polluted and resource-blobbing-up nation as faultless, and pure as the driven snow, is kind of kooky, and indicative of a small, hateful and damaged mind.  Yes, they might admit this, for it is the truth.

But it is known that dog-wokking Chinese hypocritizens are above self-indictment, as the elevated levels of their insanity is in faraway heavenly realms, far above that of mere 'americans'.  It is the stuff of legend.

Such are the squat-and-dump ways of Chinese shitizenism shitizens.

Key to propagation (propagandizing while jerking it) is ancient Chinese citizenism secret known as Flying Brown Dragon Technique. Jerking with dung hand and typing with other hand gives propagation bountifully.

The reality is though America rules the world, Americans have a hard time getting residency in most OECD countries.. one day most Americans will wake up to the fact that America is a totally different beast to Americans.

'Americans' have this obsession of being perceived for what they are not.

'American' economics do not exist to serve people in general. 'American' economics exist to serve the King class aka We The People aka the 'american' middle class.

Maybe a sizeable share of this 60pc unemployed youth was fathered by an 'american' middle class but that does not mean that they are themselves middle class.

As soon as they are not or no longer middle class, 'american' economics is no longer supposed to work to satisfy them.

That is the way it works in an 'american' world.
