"Agree to be removed early so Draghi can announce “his” first interest rate cut?"

Rude Choice...

They will print and hold each other's marked to myth crap as collateral. The US, with TARP, AIG, all those events, were a rehearsal for the global shit show. I believe in conspiracy in so far as I think these folks talk very blunt behind closed doors and watch what happens when each of them run little experiments. We did ours in 2008, we are running lean and ready to go.

We have another huge wave of kick the can coming. Until there are widespread shortages of something(s), they will keep this absurd story line going. No one cares about integrity or honesty. Make folks believe so they don't freak out. Let them know it is crooked, but just keep it going. 

Conspiracy theories thrive because they give us the illusion someone is in control. I don't think they are. I think they are crisis responders and not planners or proactive.

I think there are interests who plan. They may get their way here and there. But mother earth and what she shares has the final say.


Who would even take this job?

Even the "X-Files" made some sort of sense, I'm completely lost in all the plot-turns in the X-Economy™!

'From SocGen:'

One bankrupt institution accusing another... tiss tiss tiss. You bitches at SockGen should be be concerned with Moody's dropping your sorry asses down a couple notches and not the ECB freakshow.

I'll bet a Ag Eagle ECB outlives SockGen, anyone?

I am sure the Euro will oblige us to introduce a new set of economic policy instruments. It is politically impossible to propose that now. But some day there will be a crisis and new instruments will be created.

After all, if the hard-money Swiss National Bank can commit to unlimited money printing, so too can the ECB.

Yes, after three or four years of zaniness, the muck finally settles out and we can see with clarity.

The SNB finally got it, this isn't about fixing anything or shoring up a currency.  It is about running up a huge bar bill while buying up all the cheap gold out there, and then performing a chew and screw.  The Swiss joined the party, the Germans won't be far behind.

Their logic is flawless: if we all print money together, then we'll still have collective Priiize Stabeeeleeeteee. Trichet you magnificent bastard! Nobel! Nobel!

Fightclub bitchez. Makes as much sense as politicians getting botox, makeup, and hair dye to get elected. At least with bloodsport ECB planning the stongest something would win, not the fakest.

In fact, I doubt it will be taken at all until the market puts a gun firmly to the ECB's head and forces it to choose between its two great loves: the euro or its Germanic belief in hard money.

The gun is to the ECB's head now. The next meeting is 9/21 coinciding with the FOMC meeting - coordinated action is likely. Trichet will do a rate cut as cutting rates generally precede outright money printing.
