#AskBoE: Ask The Bank Of England Anything

Tyler Durden's picture


In the footsteps of the smashing success that was the #AskJPM and #MyNYPD social outreach by the two beloved institutions, yet another renowned entity has decided to take its comedic genius to the people: none other than the place where it all started - the Bank of England. So if you have a question for Mark Carney's money printing and housing bubble-forming institution, do no hesitate to tweet it: just remember to add the #AskBoE hash tag.

If they couldn't predict this stunt blowing up in their face, how can they be expected to predict the economy?


At least they aren't as shameless as in Australia, where a central bank board member doubles as director for a hedge fund fraud scheme. Check out my updated blog on Australian financial crime:

How much gold do you currently hold in physical form, as opposed to what you tell the chumps who were dumb enough to let you hold theirs?

I don't use Facefuck or Twatter so maybe someone who does can ask this for me.

A question for Mark Carney:

What specifically is 'escape velocity' and how will you achieve it by creating more medium of exchange?

Last I heard.....Pakistan via Diego Garcia.


I hope that doesn't qualify me for Directive 3025.18....it's not a really well kept secret. It's not like I outed the CIA chief for Afghanistan.

Maybe he was already compromised and outing him seemed like an easy way to get rid of him.

I heard he was late on his "contribution" to CREEP.

( Commitee to RE-Elect the President)

Then there was that puzzling 17 minutes of silence on the latest Obama Secret Tapes. ...

Somebody get Kissinger in here Stat....

Q. How many hookers and blow will it take to raise the GDP by 1 percentage point?

Q (part two) Can we institute a government program to incentivize spending on hookers and blow through tax deductions and direct payments to low income citizen who can't spend their fair share?

Are they willing to release a full ledger showing what gold they own and what gold they are holding on behalf of each other nation as well as conducting a full and independent audit?

I am currently living in one of her penal colonies which is by far a better place than the one she is living in.

Better still they can kick it all the way like they did with Cromwell's head.

Actually the king ordered that Cromewell's body be disinterred and his body was hung after which his head was placed on a spike. 

They have in my mind set the precedent for awaits them as well.
