Might have something to do with problems in the german coalition (CDU and FDP)

The PPT took their eyes off Germany for a couple of minutes and look what happens. Should be interesting to watch the markets seesaw this morning as the global PPT bounces between Europe and US markets.

there is not a global depression.  The state of a nation's economy is reflected in its balance sheet, prior to QE, and its money supply.


Asia Pacific-Brazil-Infation

US, Europe, Japan- deflation.

UK - stagflation


QE indirectly distorts a nation's money supply, from the currency markets, as hot money flows into it, and a central banks have to print money to offset currency appreciation, thereby increasing the money supply.

Well, I guess size does matter for Germans:

  • German finance minister says EFSF in current size "will be sufficient" Thu, 09:10 25-08-2011

    Disabled - well he was shot three times...(Smith and Wesson, cal .38)
    Gay - who knows - well officially he is married and has children. But does it matter?

    Your last point - liar. Well, yes and yes. He is a thief and a liar and someone that has no respect for the general public or the parliament or democracy. That's why I really dislike him and what even makes me furious at times.

    It's not the size that matters but how you use it, ehh? lol  In that case they're screwed twice over.

    And I know of many decent, hard working middle-class ukulele-playing ordinary citizens who now have to be lumped in with Comrade Buffet.

    DAX: it is just Buffet pulling his money out of German companies to cover his check to Moynihan.

    You could be onto something there. Buffet sees the Euro biting the dust first.

    Rumors of a German Downgrade.

    Maybe due to this? :

    the ECB has effectively left Germany holding the bag to the entire European bailout via the blank check SPV. The cost if things go wrong: a third of the country economic output, and the worst case scenario: a depression the likes of which Germany has not seen since the 1920-30s. Oh, and if France gets downgraded, Germany's pro rata share of funding the EFSF jumps to a mindboggling €1.385 trillion, or 56% of German GDP!"

    Germany is the last one to be downgraded. First of all Germany will ask to have Gold as collateral for new loans to the PIIG countries (,1518,781885,00.html) then, when they have it all, they will bancrupt Germany and hand the Gold over to the U.S. (to the Fed for example). Fortunately most of the Gold already resides in NY vaults

    Funny, but most of us think the vaults hold a lot less than you do. At least, the public vaults.

    yes true, but just like what Chavez did they want to avoid: Someone requesting their gold. THerefore it will not matter if the vaults just contain gold plated tungsten

    It's all good...assuming they can convince the PIIGS to put up 33k tonne of 'collateral'. LOL
