The Bloomberg anchors are rambling and trying to figure out what it means, rather amusing to watch.  This one fruitcake is wearing a baby blue dress shirt with a pink tie.  What a vag!

Stark has his gonads in both hands, no time for a hotel maid. Besides, she might be hiding a pitchfork.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the atlantic:

From Paul Krugman:

Before I get to the Obama plan, let me talk about the other important economic speech of the week, which was given by Charles Evans, the president of the Federal Reserve of Chicago. Mr. Evans said, forthrightly, what some of us have been hoping to hear from Fed officials for years now.

As Mr. Evans pointed out, the Fed, both as a matter of law and as a matter of social responsibility, should try to keep both inflation and unemployment low — and while inflation seems likely to stay near or below the Fed’s target of around 2 percent, unemployment remains extremely high.

So how should the Fed be reacting? Mr. Evans: “Imagine that inflation was running at 5 percent against our inflation objective of 2 percent. Is there a doubt that any central banker worth their salt would be reacting strongly to fight this high inflation rate? No, there isn’t any doubt. They would be acting as if their hair was on fire. We should be similarly energized about improving conditions in the labor market.”

Accomodation, bitchez!

Krugman must LOVE Fukushima. Nuclear meltdown that will continue for 40 years. 40 years of construction workers and cleanup crews bitchez. Each worker can spend maybe 1 hour of their life in the region then have to leave permanently. Or maybe if they stay and die, more people like undertakers will have jobs.

(P.S. not sure why Japan's GDP is down... uhmm..uhhnnn..duhhhh)

This is one asshole I will never forgive.  By the way, wasn't he saying there is "no inflation," and the price increases we are seeing are due to the BRICs consuming more?  Is this his underhanded way of admitting that central bank policy leads to inflation?

It's important because it means the Wolfgang Schauble faction will win and Germany will underwrite all of Europe. This will spread the debt grangne to the core as Germay's surplus erodes from a coming slowdown in demand for it's high end machinery and german cars from China. Meanwhile, I'll win the Niederhoffer contest on my call for 5 yr CDS on GER, FRA, ITA  and Chinese debt 2011.

What follows is the realization that the ECB can, indeed, print and the Euro does that fiat dance where it gets real... low.

When i suggested TD and his long sentance construction be replaced by a cartoonist (because TD said many of us had attention spans shorter than a Goldfish) i had no idea we'd get such a poor quality cartoonist! OK TD all is forgiven, you can stay mate, at least until we find a good cartoonist
