This is how the europonzi works in Italy. No wonder they want eurobonds and other fraudulent action to keep the small elite intact. Not sure the german taxpayers will keep paying for these banana republics much longer...

Did you even read the article? Did you even note Tyler's comment? I wonder about your capabilities...

Ok, i touched a nerve. I know eurofanatics like you are very sensitive when someone criticises the "deathzone" or it's members. I should have put "OT" in front of my writing so even you would have realised it wasn't a commentary related directly to this post made by Tyler. Keep on dreaming, buddy.

Thank you, so now I'm an "Eurofanatic" just because you post an OT article that says "oh, our politicians were caught with the hands in the cookie jar but look, the Italians are much, much worse!!". I could have told you 30y ago that Italian politicians "costed" three times more then British - rate decreasing.

It is tiring. You seem to think that your press is in any way balanced, your governance nearly perfect and your ways the only worthwile. This specific "Eurofanatic" is just trying to understand if you do this because you know better or not.

"Deathzone"? Because Murdoch says so? Have you seen him keeping your Parliamentary Commission in check? Keep yourself dreaming, "buddy", or come with some sound reason why "Deathzone" which takes some facts like current inflation in account.

Just fyi, i'm not from UK but from the "deathzone". So i really don't think this source i linked here is in any way better than any other msm-source no matter which country it's coming from. And yes, it is a "deathzone". It's based on political utopia, not on reality. And the results from this little excercise are for everyone to see. It hasn't worked, it's not working and it'll never work. And a little tip if you may: You don't have to take these things personally. After all, it was just a link to a one little story nothing more nothing less.

political utopia? This is not much of an argument! And I'm not taking it personally, I just want to remind you that the "wogs" read what you write... ;-)

I have a few examples of entities which were deemed "political utopias" well into the first twenty-forty years of their existance:

Category "Classical Nation States": Germany & Italy after their unifications

Category "Non-Classical": The United States of America and The Swiss Confederation

After a while, let's say hundred years nobody notices that they all started as "political utopias".

Germany is allready coming down. And the taxpayer is not gonna pay for this, since his payments cant even finance the state. the whole system is living of debt and dillusions and like everything that has been build on evil, this also has to come down one day for sure. The earlier the better

not that the german sheeple would wake up. their grandfathers proved that they have the strongest of sleep when it comes to ignorance against "authority"

Goldman should be banned from the EuroZone for what they have done, they should not be looked to for advice. It is like asking a theif to set up your security system.

To some extent GS has already been banned.  From sovereign debt sales anyway.

So the Squid is saying: "even though your problems could be solved by non-inflationary means, we won't give pause until you PRINT, BITCHEZ! And don't even try to fight us, we are the Squid and we will push the CDS market and all other buttons until you PRINT, PRINT, PRINT!"

Oh Great Vampire Squid, your reign cometh, you bonuses will be made. Long live the Squid.

This is a liquidity, rather than solvency, crisis for Italy and Spain



Ya, well, we did that already, with the "Black Nobility" et al...banksters run amok, things go up in smoke/




this really IS the END...we into reruns of 14th century Italian bank heists.


The end of our elaborate plans
The end of ev'rything that stands
The end

No safety or surprise
The end
I'll never look into your eyes again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need of
some strangers hand
In a desperate land

TBTF Banksters are really, truly Too Big To Exist.

The problems in housing and commercial real estate is that nobody planned to pay off their debt.  Flip this house ... 10 year no prinicpal notes.  The idea that real estate can only go up is obviously wrong.

The US doesn't intend on paying off its debt either.  Inflation will take care of it. 

QE3 is around the corner.  It will be blamed on the "slow economy".  And ... while the Fedury and Washington and Obama would indeed like the economy to right itself, their real goal is to maintain their own source of liquidity -- treasury sales.

Don't kid yourself ... this is not in your best interests.  It's all about maintaining the status quo.  The Fedury and Banksters are all too happy to launder Washington's ponzi money.

Italy 'to default' but Spain may 'just' escape

"Fingers crossed but there is a real chance that Spain may avoid default and debt restructuring, unless it gets dragged down by contagion," Mr McWilliams said.

"Realistically, Italy is bound to default, but Spain may just get away without having to do so," he said."

GS works for the Oligarchy. It is the Oligarchy. The Oligarchy has decided it will tell its surrogates to print, and print they will; on both sides of the pond. Period. See ya in inflation land. The ride into 2012 will be a real roller coaster now!

I told you all in March/April that  August is when the fun would REALLY START. AND IT HAS. 

The summer is always a good time for cooking, revving up the motor, for preparing a major step change...

time for Spain to fork over all the gold they have stashed away in exchange for payment on their sovereign debts, it is time to settle up all the new world gold they heisted from the America's.

The ECB can - and has in the past - sterilise its purchases of sovereign debt, so that the liquidity in the banking sector, and hence the potential inflationary risks, remain contained.

Money laundering. They print this shit with a straight face.
