It's gotta work better than the truth.

Why do it piecemeal? Think big: Presenting the "One Earth Rescue Package".

A Galatic bailout to end all bailouts.

Is it only me, but does anybody else find this Goldman report fairly optimistic about Italy?

GOLDMAN WANTS TO SELL!!!!! They always tell the clients one thing and do the opposite themselves.

I thought the same thing reading the first half, but in the last half of the report they basically admit that most of their optimism is based on speculation, and that the situation doesn't seem to be playing out the way it should. It's actually pretty pessimistic when you read between the lines. What they expect to achive in the short-term and medium-term analysis means a severe setback for the average Italian, not only via tax increases and cutting programs, but also by selling off chunks of the country's infrastructure. Ominous, to say the least.

Is this dude Garzarelli related to Elaine Garzarelli, the "Facelift Queen"?

So are you saying this guy has a history of giving pigs/PIIGS facelifts and lipstick?

The only thing we know is Sudden Debt. And that is ALL we know. There are so many "interconnections" as far as we know a Scotsman could fart and bring down the entire city of Milan. Not that he meant to of course. Bring down Milan that is. He meant to fart. That much is certain. Insofar as The Goldman/Sachs--"when genius prevailed" comes to mind.

Seems the only question the bozo's care about  "How will the market react ?"  Nevermind how to move forward.  "How will the market react ?"  The answer:  The Market will not react for there is no market, it's just vapors/red and greean lights flashing....  It's SO productive...  OMFG

Goldman Suchs:

Please f--- off, you and your peers brought us to this party and handed us over to the Chinese.

In fact, the entire 'financial industry' should have a net thrown over it. How is it an industry? I guess Powerball is a great industry, too.

I would like to get into hemp rope production (thinking ahead) but gee, we have to use nylon here in Police State America.

Really, f--- GS.

Well articulated Conax.

"There is growing evidence to suggest that the price action is becoming self-reinforcing, and is disregarding economic fundamentals."

"On Friday, the Italian government made a commitment to bring the non-interest balance to a surplus of 5% already by 2013, from 1% now, and to ‘tie its hands’ through a German-style ‘balanced budget rule’ requiring a modification of Art.81 of the Italian Constitution. The government also promised more on the liberalization front (starting with changing Art.41 of the Constitution to say that all economic activities that are not explicitly prohibited are allowed), and on labour market reforms."

"The Pact for the Euro—underwritten last March—envisages that all countries should reach a balanced budget over the next couple of years, and should continue to reduce public debt as a percentage to GDP under a formulaic rule. Structural reforms should help raise the growth potential, but are unlikely to boost economic activity while they are carried out (Germany’s adjustments over the past year weighed on domestic demand)."

In other words, continue to sacrifice the needs of the many for the needs of the few.

ZH is pretty slow responding.

This is on a weekend.  That server loss is going to be horrible this week.

Wasn't it GS that claimed several days after the disasterous earthquake/zsunami/massive radiation leak that this destruction was "Bullish for Japan?"

This seems to indicate how these folks think about Mankind.

Conax's picture

The old "wreckage = rebuilding activity" angle, I suppose.

Being a tentacle of the FED lets you siphon money out of the action, be it rainbows and unicorns, or Auntie and Bartertown.

It's a living.  It's an industry.

The ECB has done nothing but propose and then dispose of their propsals for over a year now.

They need to STFU up and visibly, transparently buy bonds in size if they want the EU to survive.

BTW-- Trichet should do the honorable thing and commit seppuku after raising rates on Italian banks that fully short-term funded under massive liquidity stress.

It's getting harder and harder to keep the charade going, and they know it.  Something is going to happen tonight before the US market opens, I think the president is either going to put out their that they will do a QE3 or that after Monday he will say it.
