G7 Considers Issuing Communique: Global Easing Imminent After All?

Tyler Durden's picture

A few days ago we mocked Morgan Stanley's call that the G7 would proceed with a global easing episode over the weekend. We may have been slightly premature. From Reuters: "Group of Seven finance chiefs meeting in southern France are considering issuing a communique after their talks, a G7 source said on Friday.  G7 chair France had said there would be no communique from the talks, but the source said the issue was now being debated and there was a 50 percent chance of a statement.  The source said if there was a communique it would talk about the global economic slowdown, financial market turmoil and the policy tools different countries could use, but it would not make any reference to concerted interventions."

As a reminder, from Morgan Stanley:

Never let a crisis go to waste. Someone needs to be the sacrificial lamb.

Just 9 words needed in the communique.

All blah blah blah, say they will monitor/act in timely manner, but do nothing sensible to fix the problems, like prosecute the banksters and get rid of the FED

What can they do, print and send everything into a death spiral? Big deal. Just more carrot and stick, all anyone has at this point.

Quintus's picture

Yeah, but if it's a choice between printing thereby starting death spiral ending next week and not printing and thereby failing to prevent a death spiral that will end today, they will, of course, print.

A disorderly Greek default will present them with exactly that dilemma.

When it gets close to the end, they'll gladly print $100,000,000,000,000 per day, just to keep the show going until the next day.

This news + Talk of Greek Default, both alleged for the weekend = Truth.

Lord Welligton's picture

I think most agree that Greece should have defaulted over a year ago.

Their problem now is that they will have to be made an example of in order to dissuade others.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.

Exactly. Everything is in place.  CHF devalued as safe haven, PMs smash down, Greek default imminent, warnings from IMF & G-7, signals from the squids, a 2 day Sept. Fed meeting coming up, and a trash dump weekend is upon us.  If the EU goes first, it unties Ben's hands.

These guys spend 10% ime on policy and 90% of their time on perception.

According to Bloomberg Timmah said not to expect anything.

Timmah wouldn't lie to us; he does God's work.

"they got nothing"

SheepDog-One's picture

So their option is to print, they have nothing else, and more printing sends everything into faster collapse. So bring it on, carrot and stick boys.

DefiantSurf's picture

they can still pull a carrot / stick and save the printing for a coordinated effort Sept 22 after the FED announces theirs, for a race to the bottom

IBelieveInMagic's picture

What if they print and come down hard on PMs in a coordinated fashion (such as introduce heavy taxes on purchase of PMs) and are able to get the G20 to fall in line as well -- will this ensure the continuity of fiat system?

TradingJoe's picture

NO! It will be the END of IT!

IBelieveInMagic's picture

As I see it, the price of PMs rises if the market believes that there is discord between powerful countries (countries that could break ranks and go to a real asset based currency and make it stick unlike Libya) and there is possibility of group of like minded countries continuing to accumulate PMs to ultimately introduce a hard currency. But, if everyone agrees to hold their noses and continue to play along with the fiat games, wouldn't PMs become sidelined?

The fact that even after taking out Libya (and curtailed it's Gold demand), the fact that Gold has continued to climb suggests to me that there is continued scope for breakdown among the powerful countries...

TradingJoe's picture

That's exactley what I want Sheep, let them print so my shorts go to the moon and pass mars :))) did well on my long carrot futures :))) but i think with greece going down,(finally) I need to be short, I think the scams realize already they won't get shit so my 875ish on the S&P might happen after all or not?!? As always your input is much appreciated!

SheepDog-One's picture

Ive looked at my options around the market, and have concluded the best thing for me to do is go to the gun show tomorrow and 'invest' more there!

TradingJoe's picture

Got my blessing! I'm good in that respect though! Fully stocked!

How do you say "Fuck Greece" in french?


Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez's picture

No, the real question is "if Turkey attacks France from the rear will Greece help"?

Instant Wealth's picture

The real question is, if Israel attacks Turkey escorting that ominous Gazah Help Fleet, will the U.S. help their NATO partner ? And what about those 2 russian submarines heading for the mediterranean-rumour ? Turks chatting on the net about Israel supporting the PKK guerrilla in Kurdistan? The coming exploration of a huge natural gas field near Cyprus ? Questions, questions ...
