LOVE IT!!  That should take Geithner down a notch or two!  Good for Europe!  Geithner is there just to make sure the banks get their money anyway, he could care less about the countries, it is all about the banks and money for them.

Hard for Geithner to go down any lower... he's been laughed out of China and is a standing joke here in the US, and now takes his "Rodney Dangerfield" act to Europe with the expected results.  Maybe he can get rejected by the penguin population in Antartica...

I'm sure Benny will still bail them all out...

He's the spider running the hedge fund at the centre of the financial universe, and his only god is aggregate demand...

"his only god is aggregate demand..."

this is the fundamental flaw of central bankers the world over - they focus on aggregate and take any credit expansion, because they know without it the system will collapse, leading to the eventual destruction of the currency they are sworn to protect.  

I have not heard a single central banker address the key reason for the current crisis, which was the unrestrained malinvestment, i.e. debt for consumption and non-yielding assets.  And this is why they have no plan other than to get through each and every day, no matter what it takes.

the problem with aggregate demand is that it is an aggregate, and doesn't distinguish between productive and non-productive spending.

there you go sir, you just summed up my economic philosophy.

Aggregate demand is just a bunch of prices (for goods & services) multiplied by their quantity.  However, if those prices are generated by command, there's no accuracy whatsoever in their actual value.


In a market, people try to get deals--in government, not so much.  So the closer one moves to a command economy the more prices are just made up and the less utility is received per price.  This is even excluding the fact that government goods are inferior.

Yea well one of these days soon there will be no more bailouts, but war started by them instead. Their #1 real problem is too many people, and nothing theyd like more than to reduce the world population by a couple billion people. Make no mistake about it, right when everyones expecting to coast along on more miracles is when another 9-11 X100 happens one morning.

Just remember war solves everything, wipes clean all books and records. Top criminals become Generals. When bailing out becomes more troublesome than flipping the World War switch to on, watch out.

there aren't too many people, exactly.

i mean people are society's greatest asset — labour, innovation, ideas, etc.

it's just that all the resources that the market would send to feeding and clothing the world have instead gone via government and government-sponsored-monopolies to the pockets of people like warren buffett, who don't give a fuck about anything other than putting the competition out of business through overregulation.

cannibal corporatism.

Creating Debt to pay for toxic debt to delay the reckoning of unrepayable debt provided by the most indebted central banks in the world.   The whole problem started in 1972 when Nixon defaulted on its Gold obligations to France and kept the gold and started handing out paper without anything but debt backing it instead of gold certificates. 

That started the spiral of ever increasing spending, lower taxes and higher deficits and debt.   This trend has spread throughout the world and now the most indebted borrow (or print currency) to bail out insolvent banks.  

I'm certain that the outcome of this insanity is enough to make EU officials snap at Geithner when he suggest more of the same.

Just because it is not enough for Tim Geithner to be mocked, ridiculed and generally despised on one continent, the former New York Fed "Hudsucker Proxy-style" plant has just managed to become the most despised individual on at least one more continent.

Now hang on. Didn't Geithner's legend begin in Asia, before he ever hit the bigtime back in the Americas? So Europe is continent number three. At this rate I shudder to think what he has planned for Antarctica.
