forget bout gs for a sec; i hear STT and BK are going down, can somebody confirm? we need news updates on weekends.
When Greece defaults, GS will get sued all the way to Chapter 11. It's time to short the Squid.
aint karma a bitch....
I already did. Took $4000 and turned it into $16000. Unfortunately I didnt want to get caught with my investment bank in a solvency crisis or it would be $32000.
Bird in hand stuff. Dont get caught with the right Put call and lose it all in a liquidity crisis. Reinvest right away but 3 days to settle.
In principle I agree, but the squid never drowns, physically impossible.
When JPM was lifted to mega bank to catch up to Citi in the Glass/Steagal BS move, the elite lost its special forces. JPM's new status, organizational structure, etc. would no longer have allowed for the discretion required for macro-economic black ops.
What would have been easier than to recruit GS to that vacant position in the elite's military-like structure. Despite their intellectual power and performance, GS had in the elite's stratosphere always been perceived to only be No. 2. Their disadvantageous attributes compared to JPM; objective consultantancy without a political or power bias (which is needed to direct, manipulate and overrule analytically objective business decisions). Assuming this is a mere speculation, what would have been a necessary capital and organizational restructuring of GS to reward GS partners for the commitment and assure the elite's power in the organization: Incorporation and IPO,
The merits of GS new position in the elite's hierarchy: From fraudulently planting flawed and doomed sructures to revealing them, igniting them and leveraging the explosion, GS has been at the core of the '08 financial crisis, the European debt crisis and appears to maintain that not so honourable spot in the currently growing commodity and developing econ bubbles.
As with any US black ops unit, don't count on jurisdicial prosecution within the power system ordering black ops.
I agree that JPM will never (be allowed to) go down, for what they accomplished late 19th/early 20th century. The Squid however has contributed zilch to the US. If a real opportunity presents itself, vultures will feast on its carcass.
Squid must have taken a short position. Maybe they are losing their touch, God is cruel
The squid gets paid for this?
I think they feel left out and want some company at this point.
the squid underestimates a global recession in its flowchart, and the effect it'll have on tax revenue, debt:gdp, debt:tax revenues of sovereigns.
Also, it ignores the plight of Japan, especially to the yen, with further global monetization, and the next target for the cds wolfpack. Everyone is focused on Europe, but Japan is in the Bill Gross's ring of fire, and the next sovereign likely to experience a crisis.
unless energy becomes extremely cheap, we find an alien civilzation to trade with, or a new multi-trillion dollar market arises, that isn't a bubble, in the long run, we are clusterfucked.
But the squid PLANNED the global recession.
nah.. The debt bubble originated with Alan Greenspan. The Squid just took the opportunity of free money, and a political era of deregulation.
Everyone should send Alan Greenspan a note telling him how the debt bubble has affectd their lives. He didn't believe in bubbles, or the need to pop them. So we got the most massive debt bubble in the history of civilization. The economic adjustment from this debt bubble is still being played out.
OH, sure....Alan Greenspan did it on his own. I didnt know Alan Greenspan was in charge in 1913, and even far further back than that.
American debt started to decline after WWII. It wasn't until Greenspan was in charge did debt start to sky rocket.
LOL, yea right.
The Economic Consequences of Maintaining the Debt Peace.
The EZ and the EU should ban Goldman from Europe, after all, Goldman is as responsible as anyone
for the current crisis. Fraud is still fraud, no matter how big you are.
Wehn companies have enough lawyers to defend fraud as legitimate practices who gives a fuck. Whore Street sees nothing wrong in looting, stealing, lying and killing.
Give us depression and give us liberty.

Goldman Sachs: "the spice debt must flow!"
Yeap, the Spice must flow .Walk without rhythm and you won't attract the worm
"Transitory State" ...........
Lets see, now that the Western World is running 100% debt to GDP ratios, theyre expected to go to Gamblers Anonymous rehab and kick the free money habit?
May as well hope for crackheads to open their own detox clinic...just not gonna happen, ever.
have the people assemble at 85 broad street. its time for a weenie roast........
Tyler, wheres the 'Steve Liesman' step on this flowchart?
I think all this B.S. is starting to make me physically ill.
The contractions are getting faster and closer, fear not, we're about to see the big one any day now.
With Greek funds running out this week (Oct 13), Slovakia's no in parallel killing the then eminently important EFSF operation to recapitalize Greek banks and a deterioration in the French banking system thanks to the Dexia-induced doubts re France's AAA rating create an undisputable momentum. I cannot think of any approach to avoid the exitus before the end of the week.
Well, sure there is always the ECB (currently OOF), ok in that case the FED, but the parallelism of events paired with the regional and institutional-level distribution of the fire sources will make it close to impossible even for central banks to cover up the resulting mess.
I did not even include second and third degree elements in the domino chain such as doubts about EFSF AAA-rating, Belgian's accelerated move to the lower end of the solvency spectrum, Portuguese, Italian and Spanish bank recepitalization needs, etc. All these effects would trigger rather shortly after an uncontrolled Greek default.
But hey, politicians these days have become more and more creative in their prolonging tactics. Even though, the troika is not amused with Greek progress, they state to impossibly have their report ready this week, which in the mindset of the heads of EU nations will mean, ok, we send another 8 billion (on the flawed argument that a breach of greek consessions could not be proven in time... strange argument for provision of funds, don't you think so?)
What are they prolonging and why?
The quarterly payments to Greece originally agreed upon by EU, ECB and IMF.
Positive inspections of the austerity progress had previously been declared to be precondition for further payments to Greece.
remember this? squid employees requesting gun permits........ha ha ha ha........
Goldman must be bleeding, they made some awful plays eg long EUR, China will be bid forever etc.
I wanna see these a-holes think volatility has subsided and then getting f*cking destroyed on a long position again, once the world goes volatility mad (last mths of 2011). Then when China pops it takes out the lazy, greedy investment banks...BOOM!
That's a nice try at explaining the situation. But no one really knows what's going to happen once a nation in the EU defaults. No one knows the exposure of the various players in the game. So it's presumptuous in my opinion to put out something like this. But I guess as long as the "authorities" put out nice tidy charts like this, everyone who's not an "authority" will continue to have a warm and fuzzy feeling that the situation is under control. That's fine. Just gives me more latitude to make the moves I want.
who is this guy !? never heard his voice before, first time ........... what a snooty-snoot .
"...as it hatches yet another scheme with its top clients on how to short the countries that paid Goldman the big bux for the pig lipstick a few short years ago.."
Why not use the Credit Ratings Agencies again? Afterall Goldman Sucks used them for the sugary lipstick applied to the fraudulent turdloads of US mortgages and not a single one of them were cuffed and jailed.. better than average chance the CRA tricksters can do it (get away with it) again
It's "Gods Work" cooking books, mortgage fraud and fleecing clients and society (all while being insolvent).. Lloyd should write a book, 'How to get ahead while all about are losing their shirts on account of me' ...catchy title that!
Just checking. This is a real Squid flow diagram right?
It's getting to be so that I can't even tell whether these charts are for real or by WB7.
Banzais Goldman Sucks charts usually have a dead giveaway ...Lloyd Blankfein doing Gods Work in a Ronald McDonald outfit with financial mushroom clouds exploding in the background
..otherwise you're quite right, the B7 and GS charts are pretty near identical since 2008
Modern day Bread and Circus (Ben and the Money Printers)...when do the Christians and Lions come out and get thrown to the wolves and German Shepards ?
Apparently that just happened earlier today in Egypt.
David Hawley has had two bowls of Count Chocula Cereal and has forgotten to properly to wear his suit coat.
David Hawley, Deputy Director, External Relations Department, IMF
The only thing missing is "need a miracle"
I like this one better.
Well done WB7. Did you watch my link above. Four stars to one bloke that questions the IMF. Again, changing the future rules and regulations are masked as reform thru deception.
Good Chart. Even in GS chart, All 'NO' Decisions' from the 'Start' leads back to 'Start'!. So theoretically any 'YES" from here will lead to bottom left as predicted by Tyler.
P.S. Finally I entered into club
