Chaos is a Greek word and so are the words, austerity, panic, crisis, catastrophe, strategy, problem, method, scheme, kleptomaniacs, politicians, psychopaths, tyrants as well as economics and history.

In other words, this whole show has been going on with regular repeats for at least 2500 years. Back in Ancient Athens they were suffering a similar level of catastrophic debt burden amongst the people. Instead of hiring PhD economists to solve the problem, they appointed a philosopher for the task. He promptly wrote off whole swathes of debt and everyone got back to business.

Any philosophers out there?

Sure - and what will bring down the whole US/FED/Wall Street/Pentagon/CIA/NWO  cardhouse? What US philosopher will write off US debt - when it all crashes next year?

Crash JPM and Wall Street TBTF banksters - buy silver.

Or so to say; they were suffering democracy. You got all the symptoms right, but not the disease.

And that guy offering jubilee on debts every 50 years or
so was Moses, but bashing the Old Testament is in vogue for
some centuries now ...

Where's Apollo, Zeus, and Athena when ya need em'?

And where are the "anglo-saxon" method saviors? Oh yeah, that's right, they operate their leverage, ponzi, fiat schemes out of London and NYC, flying high as a kite - or should we say as Icharos...?

Next to melt & nuter:  London & NYC.

at this moment the markets simply want to hear that there won't be a referendum. either g-pap will step down, or there'll be a no confidence vote on friday leading to new elections. all these results are quite negative, but markets only care about the next 5 minutes, not the next 5 weeks, or even 5 hours for that matter. i' mexpecting a bullish bump in stocks over the next few hours when its realized that no referendum will ever be held. of course, the long-term picture is as horrendous as ever.

Well, the haircut is looking like 100%, so you get your wish.

P.S. the Fed is meeting today, what a coincidence.

They may preemptively vote themselves out of the union, return to the drachma and screw Europe by paying their bonds off US style, with inflated currency.

Maybe the Weimar Republic taught some valuable lessons after all!

Coming soon:  ISDA rules that a full Greek default is not a CDS credit event.

From Bloomberg

U.S. banks increased sales of insurance against credit losses to holders of Greek, Portuguese, Irish, Spanish and Italian debt in the first half of 2011, boosting the risk of payouts in the event of defaults.

The Papa government will collpase in the next 48 hours. End of discussion.

Sudden Debt's picture

In europe, 48 hours won't get you anywhere.
48 days is more like it, they need to discuss a bit more on the topic.

Another democracy fearing financier then.

Huge cudos to ZH - the referendum news was on here waaaay before anybody else had it. Who says there is no actionable information to be found here? there most certainly is.

You should have heard CNBC trying to sell the market yesterday. " We are going into the last two months of the year."" History shows us that the last two months are the best months" blah blah blah.....

Good luck collecting your $845,000 from MF Global CNBC
