The Full "Three-Days-To-Eurocalypse" Soros Interview

Tyler Durden's picture





 

In a no-holds-barred interview with Bloomberg TV's Francine Lacqua, the increasingly droopy-faced George Soros remains as sprite-minded as ever in his clarifying thoughts on Europe. His diagnosis is spot on: "Basically there is an interrelated problem of the banking system and the excessive risk premium on sovereign debt - they are Siamese twins, tied together and you have to tackle both" and summarizes the forthcoming Summit 'fiasco' as fatal if the fiscal disagreements are not resolved (and as of this afternoon, we know Germany's constant position on this). His solution, however, is unlikely to prove tenable in the short-term as he notes "Merkel has emerged as a strong leader", but "unfortunately, she has been leading Europe in the wrong direction". His extensive interview covers what Europe needs, the Bund bubble, GRexit, post-summit contagion, and Mario Monti's impotence.

 

 

Soros on Europe’s crisis:

“Basically there is an interrelated problem of the banking system and the excessive risk premium on sovereign debt - they are Siamese twins, tied together and you have to tackle both. It's recognized that you have to do that and there is no widespread agreement on what to do on the banking side. It's the beginning of a banking union and there is a disagreement on the fiscal side and unless that is resolved in the next 3 days then I am afraid that the summit could turn out to be a fiasco, and that could be fatal, because you are facing the possibility of Greece leaving the euro and perhaps the European Union and you need to strengthen the remaining euro structure to withstand that shock.”

 

On Angela Merkel:

“Well actually Angela Merkel has emerged as a strong leader. Unfortunately she has been leading Europe in the wrong direction. I think she is acting in good faith and that is what makes the whole situation so tragic and that is a big problem that we have in financial markets generally - that you could have a false idea, a false ideology, a false interpretation which is reinforced by reality. In other words it works for a while until it stops working and that is what is called a financial bubble - which, you know, looks very good while it is being formed and everyone believes in it and then it turns out to be unsustainable…The European Union could turn out to have been a bubble of this kind unless we realize there is this problem and we solve it and the solution is there. I think everybody can see it, all we need to do is act on it, and put on a united front, and I think that if the rest of  Europe is united, I think that Germany will actually recognize it and adjust to it.”

On whether yields there’s a risk of contagion continuing if a strong proposal doesn’t come out of the EU summit:

“That is right, and there is then a serious threat of the euro breaking down and that is not to be neglected because it's quite serious. But even if you manage to avoid, let's say an 'accident' similar to what you had in 2008 with the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the euro system that would emerge would actually perpetuate the divergence between creditors and debtors and would create a Europe which is very different from the Europe as an open society that fired people's imaginations and led to the creation of the European Union. It would transform it into a hierarchical system where the division between creditors and debtors would become permanent…It would lead to Germany being in permanent domination. It would become like a German empire, and the periphery would become permanently depressed areas.”

On what Europe needs:

What you need is a European fiscal authority that will be composed of the finance ministers but would be in charge of the various rescue mechanisms, the European Stability Mechanism, and the one that preceded it and it would be empowered to issue treasury bills, to set up a debt reduction fund and actually buy up the excess stock of that that has accumulated in the hands of particularly Italy and Spain and finally combine issuing treasury bills. Those treasury bills would yield 1% or less and that would be the relief that those countries need in order to finance their debt.”

 

Euro bonds are not possible because Germany would not consider euro bonds until you have a political union, and I think it's actually quite justified, it should come at the end of the process not at the beginning. This would be a temporary measure, limited both in time and in size, and thereby it could be authorized according to the German constitution as long as the Bundestag approves it, so it could be legal under the German constitution and under the existing treaties. What it means is the political will by Germany to put it into effect and that would create a level playing field so that Italy and Spain could actually refinance its debt on reasonable terms.”

On whether he believes Germany would be content with a smaller euro zone:

“I think Greece leaving the euro zone or being pushed out is now a real expectation and this is what is necessary to strengthen the rest of the euro zone because the way the financial markets work they can actually push a country like Italy into default - see this is what the weakness of the euro as it is currently structured because a developed country has no reason to default because it can always print money. By printing money it can devalue the currency and people can lose money by buying debt but there is no danger of default, but the fact that the individual members don't now control the right to print money - they have given that right over to the central bank you see, and that has created this situation with a European country that could actually default and that is the risk that the financial markets price into the market and that is why say ten-year bonds yield 6% whereas British 10-year bonds yield only 1.25%. That difference is due to the fact that these countries have abandoned the, surrendered their right to print their own money and they can be pushed into default by speculation in the financial markets.”

On the chances today of Greece leaving the euro:

“It's very hard to see how Greece can actually meet the conditions that have been set for Greece, and I think the Germans are determined not to modify those conditions seriously so I think one has to now calculate on Greece being forced out of the euro - that's what we have to prepare for.”

On how the treasury bill would be priced:

“It would be sold on a competitive basis but right now there are something like over 700 billion euros are kept on deposit at the European Central Bank earning a quarter of one percent because the interbank market has broken down so then right then you have got 700 billion that would be very happy to earn let's say three-quarters of a percent instead of one-quarter, and the treasury bills by being truly riskless and guaranteed by the entire community would yield current conditions less than one percent.”

On whether he believes Greece will exit the euro forever:

“No, actually it's quite possible that it could actually, depending on how it is arranged and whether it's orderly or disorderly, it's possible that Greece could re-enter but what I am really afraid of and really most disturbed about is that the euro would hold together but it would create a Europe that actually nobody wanted. It would put Germany at the center of an empire which would actually be very beneficial in many ways to Germany but politically I think it would be unacceptable and it's not something that the majority of Germans want.”

On whether German bunds are in a bubble:

“Yes…Certainly they have benefited and they are far too low-yielding if you had no world conditions, in other words the high price or low yield of the German bonds is a fever chart measuring the distress in the financial markets.”

On the chances of Spain, then Italy, needing a full-blown bailout:

“If you have this thing, then the Spanish banks would be recapitalized which would add to the debt of the Spanish debt, but if the Spanish, the excess debt is financed at 1% then it's no problem then this will help that also and if you resume growth then the decline in the housing market would not be as severe as it would be if you have a folding economy so Spain would be also in a position to come out of the recession.”

On Mario Monti:

“Monti is a caretaker, he is a technocrat so he has no political base but I think that he would have to say that he cannot serve as a technocrat if there is no support from Germany and what would Europe do without Monti, so Monti can push Merkel but and this is in a strong position to do that because he has done his best in structural reforms and he could do more if actually this was something that didn't come out in the discussion, that, Germany is worried that if you provide this kind of support then countries like Italy would stop pursuing structural reforms and that is not the case because by having a great benefit from it and losing the benefit if you abandon the structural reforms is I think a stronger guarantee that they will not abandon it than anything else.”

Soros, one of the lieutenants of TPTB, putting himself out there and highly visible to add to the illusion of credibility to what they're selling as a "Hank Paulson Tanks in the Streets & Martial Law" v2.0 moment.

Soros is keeping his pimp hand strong, reminiscing of his glory days of taking down the pound sterling. He's no Mayer Amschel, but he is still a playa'.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, by not magnifying the actual risks by a factor of at least 100x, so as to bring about an even more rigged, criminally operated, racketeering mechanism, that creates panic and uses fear to subjucate the actual producers of wealth, and add yet another intraveneous needle into their veins by which more of their blood can be stolen and given to the CronyCapitalists (i.e. non-capitalistic, best friends forever of the New York Branch of the Federal Reserve & Bank of England).

So, an asteroid 9,000 miles in circumferance will hit the earth in 3 days if the bad debts of the PIIGS  aren't made whole by sucking a good chunk of the savings (present savings and what would have been many decades of future savings) of the citizens of Germany and a few other northern european nations, so that New York and London based TBTF banking and financial institutions holding the toxic debt of the PIIGS can be bailed out and made whole (does Europe have someone similar to Bernanke or Geithner who will insist that the banks not only not take haircuts, but get compensated at a rate of 175% on their PIIGS portfolio?), yet again...and again....and again.

Never mind curing the disease or even treating the disease that brought the failure that is the Eurozone to this place in the first place. Just 'paper over' the losses, and then do it again...and again........and again......

The PIGGS did exactly what should have been expected; they gave up the right to print money in exchange for becoming welfare recipients. The tit is running out of milk so the parasite is whining and the mother is supposed to feel guilty for not providing more milk but Germany is putting on a good show.

 

They gave up the right to print but not their sovereignty which is the hole in the EU universe.  That will be changed so that the Euro can become the new reserve currency and fuck over the USA big time.

Soros discusses the issue of sovereignty in one of his books. He certainly knew this day would come. That means others knew as well. There are no accidents.

Well said.

This man is clever, but his priorities are upside down. He is concerned more with banks than with human beings. Where is the conscience? 

"Political union" has been the dream of control freaks for longer than any of us has been alive. They fabricate slick narratives to justify the psychopathic rationalization that "The greatest threat to humanity is humanity itself." BUNK! The greatest threat is these self-ascribed "elites" whose parasitic constructs, intended to compensate for their own unbalanced psyches, bring us to ruin AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

"- see this is what the weakness of the euro as it is currently structured because a developed country has no reason to default because it can always print money. By printing money it can devalue the currency and people can lose money by buying debt but there is no danger of default, but the fact that the individual members don't now control the right to print money - they have given that right over to the central bank you see, and that has created this situation with a European country that could actually default and that is the risk that the financial markets price into the market and that is why say ten-year bonds yield 6% whereas British 10-year bonds yield only 1.25%. That difference is due to the fact that these countries have abandoned the, surrendered their right to print their own money and they can be pushed into default by speculation in the financial markets.”

Perhaps, but at some point the only difference between hyperinflation and default is academic. What George is saying here is that he can’t believe individual European governments were so dumb as to give away their most powerful tool: the ability to screw their lenders.  

Sure, print like Zimbabwe and pay down your $Zim denominated debt with funny money.
But that only solves one part of the problem.
The other is that your ongoing funding costs won’t be anywhere near 1.25.
The UK won’t be rolling at a 1.25 for very much longer anyway.
Everyone can’t be the best looking horse in the glue factory.

I wonder.... It would explain a lot.

I don't have time to listen to the whole interview. Did he mention any other individual tradeable security? If not then reload has hit the nail on the head. Men like Soros always talk their book even when they can convince themselves they are doing a public service. Their logic works like this:

  • My hypothesis is x
  • My investment to espress my belief in my hypothesis is y
  • Now I must go out into the world and explain to the world why x is true

By convincing the world that x is true his investment in y is crystalised at a profit.

This is how it works.

Screw Soros. Here's an interesting read on the Euro:

http://www.acting-man.com/?p=17874

“From the political standpoint, it is quite obvious that Germany (and particularly the chancellor Angela Merkel) has the leading role in urging forward this whole process of rehabilitation and austerity (and opposing all sorts of awkward proposals that, like the issuance of "European bonds," would remove the incentives the different countries now have to act with rigor). Many times Germany must swim upstream. For on the one hand, there is constant international political pressure for fiscal-stimulus measures, especially from the Obama administration, which is using the "crisis of the euro" as a smokescreen to hide the failure of its own policies. And on the other hand, Germany has to contend with rejection and a lack of understanding from all those who wish to remain in the euro solely for the advantages it offers them, while at the same time they violently rebel against the bitter discipline that the European single currency imposes on all of us, and especially on the most demagogic politicians and the most irresponsible privileged interest groups.

In any case, and as an illustration that will understandably exasperate Keynesians and monetarists, we must highlight the very unequal results that until now have been achieved with American fiscal-stimulus policies and monetary "quantitative easing," in comparison with German supply-side policies and fiscal austerity in the monetary environment of the euro: public deficit, in Germany, 1 percent, in the United States, over 8.20 percent; unemployment, in Germany, 5.9 percent, in the United States, close to 9 percent; inflation, in Germany, 2.5 percent, in the United States, over 3.17 percent; growth, in Germany, 3 percent, in the United States, 1.7 percent. (The figures for United Kingdom are even worse than those for the United States.) The clash of paradigms and the contrast in results could not be more striking.”

problem/reaction/solution (the manipulation method) and/or the hegelian dialectic (the framework for directing the historical narrative) are useful concepts to understand this.

Problem reaction solution:

  1. Start by creating the problem (the euro)
  2. Strengthen the problem (painting over the troubles)
  3. Shape the dialogue around it (reaction) thanks to your control of related institutions, scholars and media (we need more centralization)
  4. Once the reaction has been shaped along the desired lines, trigger the problem/intensify it to the point where it can not be tolerated anymore
  5. Ride in on your white horse and propose your pre-determined solution to save the day
  6. Be greeted as a saviour
  7. ???
  8. Profit!

Hegelian dialectic:

  • By shaping the thesis, the antithesis and the way they are perceived to conflict, you control the synthesis that comes out
  • Applied with an historical, global perspective (religion, culture, finance, politics, etc), you can then shape the historical narrative to lead where you wish
  • If you are aiming for global centralization of power, this is what you would do with the current situation:
    The thesis is the current financial union of europe, justified by the alleged necessity to coordinate the nations for whatever ends
    The antithesis is the financial crisis that Europe is going through, apparently caused by the lack of fiscal coordination between members of the union but truly with roots too exquisitely manipulative to be discussed presently (that's what ZH is about!)
    Put those in a blender, shake vigorously, using P/R/S to preach for more centralization as a solution...
  • Boom! Profit!

Soros makes as much sense as any oligarch, and comes up with solutions that would only appeal to oligarchs.  He wants to pay off old debts (he and his class are the CREDITORS in this system) with new debt.  Which is great for him but still puts everyone else into permanent debt peonage.

 

When I hear these wealthy bastards finally admit the only solution is massive default and, a total reset of the world's banking and monetary systems, is the day I take them seriously.

Too Big To Fail, Long Live EMPEROR Jamie! ScapegoatingANY Ivory Tower 'theory' in order to cover-up for MAFIA Capitalism is intellectually dishonest.

And the $2.3, or per Johnson and Parsons, $4 trillion of JP Morgan “balance sheet” exposures don’t tell the whole story. Banking expert Chris Whalen has described JP Morgan as a $2 trillion banks attached to a $75 trillion derivatives clearing operation. Why do you think, when Lehman and MF Global got wobbly, that JP Morgan became more and more difficult to deal with? Because their role as clearer made them particularly exposed.

JPMorgan’s total balance sheet is valued, under U.S. accounting standards, at about $2.3 trillion. But U.S. rules allow a more generous netting of derivatives — offsetting long with short positions between the same counterparties — than European banks are allowed. The problem is that the netting effect can be overstated because derivatives contracts often don’t offset each other precisely. Worse, when traders smell trouble at a bank that has taken on too much risk, they tend to close out their derivatives positions quickly, leaving supposedly netted contracts exposed.
People with experience regulating or analyzing financially distressed institutions greatly prefer to measure potential losses with the European approach, in which netting is allowed only when contracts expressly incorporate settlement on a net basis under all circumstances.

Now you might say, “didn’t JP Morgan submit a preliminary plan for an orderly wind down? Surely we can manage this sort of thing now.” Don’t hold your breath. Top bankruptcy lawyer Harvey Miller objected to the decision to put Lehman into bankruptcy in haste, warning that the failure of a mid-sized broker/dealer (and Lehman was clearly bigger that) disrupted markets.

Johnson’s warning is clear: a eurozone crisis is not likely to be contained, and the biggest US banks are exposed. And it is looking more and more likely that we’ll find out whether the regulators can, as they insist, manage a big bank failure without engaging in massive bailouts. (www.nakedcapitalism.com)

Two interesting facts about George.

He has 1/3 of the hair he had when he was 30  

and

He has Holmes Aidie Syndrome. Which is why his eye lid is drooping (Aidies Eye lid).

What a total scumbag.  The solution to everything is more egregious control by more egregious predators in more egregious and untenable ways.  His solution is --- governments just print and spend money and give themselves the ability to enslave every future generation, not just the next several.

Look, the entire structure of planet earth today is based on the following idea:

Give credit cards with no upper limit to people who do not have to pay back the debt they incur.  Oh, and give these same cretins unlimited control of hordes of jack booted thugs to go steal and waste even more wealth, and beat the crap out of anyone who objects.

Every single human being on earth who is honest for a moment would agree such a scheme is inherently unworkable, and in fact, inherently insane.

Yet that is the basis of every gang of predators DBA government on the planet.

Human beings are a complete FAILURE.  Human beings are FINISHED unless they throw off this and other forms of collectivism, and return to individualism (responsibility for self).

Who is Soros and what is he standing for?

Fact: As far as I know, the FED is a private bank whos owners aren't even officially known. At the present status, it hasn't the obbligation to declare who the shareholders are. Research tells FED's owners are Rotschild Banks of London and Berlin; Lazard Brothers Bank of Paris; Israel Moses Sief Bank of Italy; Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Germany and Amsterdam, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Lehmann Borthers Bank of New York; Chase Manhattan Bank of New York (under control of the Rockefeller family).


Basically, the FED has, since 1913 - Wilson - the power to print money out of nothing and borrow it to the US government. Some of the FED's functions are performed by de Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee (FOMC), which has 12 members belonging to american banks. The FED is a finantial corporation, shareholders are not even exactly known by the US citizens, under the leadership of a banker's cartel - even foreign ones - some of it's functions delegated to a cartel of american bankers.


According to the Bureau of Public debt (http://www.publicdebt.treas.gov), at 05/24/2012 USA public debt was U$S 15,712,446,368,243.65; USA GDP 2011: U$S 14,582,000,000,000 (http://www.tradingeconomics.com/united-states/gdp), 103% del GDP (same source, data can be updated daily).

 

Bankers are major contributors to both Democrats and Repubblicans. Who is in control of the US Government? (We've read on ZH about Bush's present to fraud freely by even keeping two separate sets of books and Clinton's gift of Glas-Steagall's derogation, deregulation) 

EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK (ECB) belongs NOT TO THE EU States but to Eurozone's Central Bank members and NON Eurozone's Central Bank members (such as Bank of England, Sweden, NO Euro countries).

?

?Who owns Eurozone States' Central Banks? PRIVATE BANKS. http://www.ecb.int/ecb/orga/capital/html/index.en.html

?

?WHAT IS GOING ON? AMAZINGLY HUGE BANKSTERS LOSES (derivates to be thanked to Clinton's and Bushe's gifts) ARE BEING TRASFERRED TO CITIZENS THROUGHOUT GOVERNMENTS (also CONTROLLED by BANKSTERS, as all of us know: Monti, De Guindos, Samaras, Shuterand, Draghi,  (ECB) etcetera and even Merkel and Obama as they NEED banksters (having resigned monetarian sovereignity GOVERNMENTS CAN'T HANDLE MACROECONOMICS TOOLS AS monetarian policy...).

?

?What's the best a banker can ask????? To be backed up by the government no matter what, wich is what SOROS aims at: ?ONE MORE BIG, MONSTROUS UNION GOVERNMENT  (THE UNITED STATES OF EUROPE) OF BANKSTERS (AS THE USA) CONTROLLING STATES' ECONOMIES AND ASSETS  AND THE POWERFUL WAR CAPACITY OF NATO.

?

?That's all, folks. NO DEMOCRACY, NO FREE MARKETS, NO FREEDOM, NO CHOICE. Everybody is and will be forced to pay bankster's bills.


?Hope people wake up and realizes there's nothing good for any of us around the world under that kind of INGSOC already in process.

?

?Either we fight for freedom or enslaves ourselves for good. Choice looks pretty clear to me.
