New day, new disaster. Time for a coffee...

'The three banks’ CEE exposure exceeds Austrian GDP' - says it all. Now, where's Deutsche in all this...

Now how do we short the coming Australian bubble?

Btw that commercial is so friggin' gay.

For Entertainment value it has much more value.

At least the epic Chinese housing bubble bust should cure America of its China Envy.

Buy gold, short the world...

To me XXX denotes an adult beverage relative to Turd's blog. Just a bunch of friends having a great conversation and some drinks.

Not someone trying to score points.

Look it from the bright side: without the Credit-Anstalt's idiocy Ludwig von Mises would have taken that job with them in Vienna, would have stayed there and would have probably not written his works...

No Austrian School without Credit-Anstalt

I am compelled to agree with you given my bias towards real economic growth versus debt based, falsified, Ponzinomics growth.

Is this another Creditinstalt Rothschild Bank?  One off Madoff's Khazar conspirators had a Austrian bank.

At least the ad was funny. "We don't care about your income, just the value of the property!" 


Coke and Hookers's picture

Translation: "We don't care if you can't service your debt. All we care about is owning your property and your wages in the future in exchange for our fractional reserve created money - bitch."


Isn't banking wonderful?

Good Times : Federal Reserve Joke

The above is Fractional Reserve Scam 101 for those getting their feet wet.

Advanced classes are held daily on ZH, where the magic trick of being able to conjure fiat from thin air, loan it out at interest, leveraged many times over, and still reap massive profits and assets even if 99.9% of the loans theoretically defaulted (cost basis of conjuring fiat to loan was $0 and you wind up with massive assets from securitized loans that went sour) is broken down.

Goddamn this shit just keeps getting better and crazier! Thank you Tyler(s) for reporting this fantastic news. Tonight I turned on CNN and FOX to see if their was any coverage of what the European or US debt committee problems and I was not surprised to see them doing a story on that congress woman gifford that got shot last year while Fox was discussing Michelle Bachmans new book. God bless the internet. God bless the Tylers of zerohedge. Without the interwebs we would be so lost!

That being said I dont think we will make it to the summer without a severe beatdown of equities. This is eerily similar to the smash of 2008 except its much bigger and more dangerous. I would be especially shocked if the market sold off violently after the fed announced a 500 billion QE3, dissapointing the markets. And the reality is in order to keep the Ponzi alive the ECB and the fed would have to collectively monetize and expand their balance sheets by 3 trillion over the next 18 months.

In the current political environment I'm sure QE3 will be more stealthy and may even be underway now. Don't expect an announcement.

Bring it on, Bitchez!  S&P 500 baby!

That's got quite a ring to it!

And MSNBC was showing old Olberman re-runs where he was incomprehensibly yelling about something, turning bright red, spitting all over. 
Shoulda been on the Gong Show

Freddie's picture

Only morons watch TV.  Thanks for enabling and enpowering your overlords by watching and paying for their propaganda electrons.  Nice job.


Austria, Australia. Whatever. The bankers are coming for your gold. 

hungrydweller's picture

That can't have any gold that is not deposited in a bank, MoFo!


Ummmm, tell that to Lloyd and Jamie and the boys.  They will try and get it whether it is in a freakin international bank or not.  I'm junking you for junking me. peace

As Obama would say: They were talking in Austrian; that's why it had subtitles.

Good Citizens of Metropolis!

All inflationists are a bunch of blind cocksuckers.

I lived through the 70's.  Trust me.

Paul Volker restored order quite quickly.

The depression will be deflationary.

Now straighten up and fly right, you motherfuckers.


hungrydweller's picture

There are no new Reagans or Volckers, FuckWeed!

Freddie's picture

Stop pimping your lame blog.  My guess is your work for Goldman and have a phony hate Lloyd web site.

robobbob's picture

with $15T in bond financing, any move in interest rates and the US will implode over night.

this time the banker globalists have Volkers escape door nailed shut. theres no getting out of this burning building except running straight into their trap.

Awesome ad!
PO PO PO PO ....

Don't forget though that the government locked CHF denominated loans to a fixed (lower) rate some two months ago. Still, that kind of helps the debtors but the banks are screwed. IIRC the move cost the banks some EUR300 MM.

who the phuck are you people here now? anywho...talk about operation "Fast and Furious"! The events in Europe are spiraling out of control so quickly it only goes to show how bad the gambling addicts at CNBC simply have to pass off their "handle" to you OR ELSE! Simply put England and France are now well beyond mere pounding the table for war with Iran as they are fast approaching simply starting one and "hoping the Americans can save them from themselves." In the meantime...back at the "budget negotiation table...
