IMF Spoils The Party Again: Throws Up On Latest Greek Proposal

Tyler Durden's picture

And it was all looking so great based on the market's all-knowing discounting mechanism of kneejerk-reacting algos.

Despite Merkel's comments on "no discussion of restructuring" and Schaeuble's dysphoria over the proposals, a Greek Minister's overconfident "Greece is rescued" comment is about to be crushed by Lagarde's heavy hand:


More from Marketnews which reported the latest IMF disagrement:



Greece will be able to quickly tap previously committed bailout cash to pay the International Monetary Fund next week if it's able to reach an agreement with its creditors, senior EU sources have told MNI, but the Fund remains ironically one of the country's toughest critics in the ongoing negotiations.

And from the WSJ:

But the IMF is still unhappy with key aspects of Greece’s new economic proposals and German officials were irritated by the speed with which the commission welcomed them, warning that much work needs to be done. 


Greece’s plan calls for reducing the deficits in its pension system and government budget by relying heavily on raising taxes and social-security contributions, whereas the IMF wanted bigger spending cuts. 


The Washington-based IMF has said Greece’s economy is already too heavily taxed and that too many additional tax increases would hurt economic growth, making it harder to pay down Greece’s debt.


“It is still short of everything that should be expected,” IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said Monday, suggesting Greece will have to modify its proposals significantly to win the IMF’s backing.


IMF representatives have told European officials that they are also not satisfied yet by Greece’s broader economic overhaul plans beyond its budgetary promises. The IMF sees a wider, business-friendly shake-up of Greece’s economy as essential if the country is to improve its long-term economic growth.

Yeah - but as they say - apart from that The IMF loved the Greek Proposal!?

However, even if this were to be agreed by The IMF, there is stil Zee Germans who just threw another "ball is in your court" wrench in the plans:


Back to you Tsipras.

Blah, it is all a dog and pony show. Everyone running around looking like they are doing the best for their party. What a joke! Up on deck, one Grexit.

Going back to the headline, everyone should be throwing up on this, so is it news or is it just stating the obvious?

Don't hold back, Yen.  Tell him what you really think.  (The hamster comment was funny as shit, by the way.  I'm still chuckling.)

How the USA "solved" the problem of top-level federal oversight: the Civil War

How the EU (a geriatric petting zoo) solves the same problem (150 yrs. later): rules, rules, rules ("it's sooooo civilized")

ROFLMAO: when Pluto's in Capricorn (until 2025), there are no rules.

*Greiatric Petting Zoo*....Instant classic there Salah.

BTW, I always notice your astrological by-lines. Do you blog/write about this somewhere?

Greece is the Template for other EUSSA countries, to usher in Neo-Feudalism. 

And, at the same time, a nice Tool to mess with Russia. 

I suspect.

Soros is paying Greeks to protest to stay in the EMU and with the Euro. They have really nice banners and such and the people are very happy to do this because they are being paid. The best job in Greece they say.

I never thought I would despise a series of articles more than last year's Ebola scare.

I was wrong.

That is a great point about WWII being shorter.


Of course I think this is most likely following the Great Depression theme than any of the wars.

That train wreck took a long time also.

"No, no, no, yes, no, no, yes, no, yes, no, no, NO, yes, NOO, NOOO, NOOOO, yes, NOOOOOOOOO, YES!" says Greece and Germany.

Can't you see the game they are playing?

A guy went to the doctor and he told him he had some bad news and some really bad news, which did he want first? The guy said, give me the really bad news. He said you have cancer and will be dead in a week. The guy said geez, what is the bad news? He said, you have alzheimer's. The guy said, thank god, I thought I might have cancer!

I thought greece was a movie.....Its a country too?  Probably somewhere in the middle east huh?  I find it surprising tho, muslims usually pay their bills.   Why doesnt the west just bomb them and take their oil?  Joking aside, someone tell me if I am at least on the same planet to what is going on.  Greece borrows money from the bankers. Seems they borrowed too much and did not spend it properly. Now they need to borrow more because they spent it all.  I hate the bankers more than I can say, but isnt this the fault of Greece for mismanaging the money?  I dont really blame Greece for borrowing, I had to borrow to buy a house.  Well, I lost my job and I ended up filing for bankruptcy.   This was about 15 years ago.  I finally found a job and worked my way back up, but filing for bankruptcy didnt kill me. In fact it was good for me because I was unable to BORROW ANY MORE FRICKING MONEY!  I stayed out of debt ever since. For the bankers, they are worried that if Greece defaults, then so will Spain, Portugal, etc.  In fact, this isnt about the money, its about the bankers keeping control of the country/world.  And what the heck is 7 billion dollars?  Obamas vacations almost equal that. :-)

ANyway, sorry for the novel, I am bored this morning.

More important than who agrees or disagrees with what is to design and implement a solution to Greece's debt problem which hangs like a shadow over Europe and destroys the social fabric in Greece. The latest proposal shall if implemented only drill deeper holes into Greece without providing debt relief and therefore the problem will be increased instead of solved. It is not helping anybody if the Greek government is in future waterboarded with credit extension talks every 3 month by chief torturers Schäuble, Juncker, Lagarde and Draghi. Excessive debt needs to be extinguished. Everybody knows that. Where is the problem?

IMO, this has nothing to do with the end result. It is everything about timing now.

They are timing an "event".

Otherwise the "theater" would be meaningless.

They have to kill Greece now, before autumn elections in Spain. They can't risk another leftist government not bowing to the masters. How dare they raise their voice
