    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Are these guys cracked? And when they get ousted and people do not want a Euro President than what?

"Van Rompuy Proposed as Head of Euro Council"

so much for elections. Just let the entrenched banking establishment assign your leadership for you. And tell you how much of your labor will get paid directly to them, in exchange for giving them the dreaded responsibility of being able to print your currency - on demand, and backed by nothing.

When is this old rock going to wake up and re-institute the guillotine

When are the reelections of Merkel and Sarkozy?

Maybe, suddenly, out of a miracle, once they are reelected and their position secured, the eurobonds will gain the required democratic legitimacy, just like that, by enchantment.

Sarkozy was apparently hot for Eurobonds going into this summit process, so the sudden words of concern about democratic legitimacy and so on are probably all Merkel's, even if they come out Sarkozy's mouth.

European leaders just want to reemphasize that all is well and investors should remain calm.

Why nothing?

Eurobonds is a big story. A big step. They are trying to play the US playbook to dissolve peoples.

The eurobond creation will be coupled to the creation of a European people and the dissolution of the former european peoples.

It is big.

This possibility hitting the public political scene, being weighted, being evaluated, is already a big step.

You cant expect a nation to vote itself into oblivion after one single night thinking about it.

That is marketings. They are creating the desire of it. It takes time.

These last ten years have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that our owners don't need good puppets.  Just about any will do, so why risk having someone who actually knows his ass from fat meat?  He might bite.

Excerpt; Insert name and alternate speaker, Merkel or Sarkozy, doesnt matter; 'It's your turn to blow me.' 'No, it's your turn to blow me.' Repeat until Van Rumpboy calls and tells them what to say the meeting was about.

It's a "feel good" world and very few people want the truth. People want to believe that something can and will be done; that's what these meetings provide. Just look at all the terminally ill, stage four cancer patients who waste their final months in agony due to chemo. People want hope, even when there is none.

Haha, One World Government. Can we just get it over with an elect the President of the World? Once mars gets done bailing us out, I hope we settle down and issue a joint Mars-Earth bond, because I will definitely invest in that.

I'm struggling to see how any of this has even the most tangential relationship to the actual problem of internal Eurozone debt dynamics and rapidly slowing economies.

It is just me or should Merkel and Sarkozy just have made better use of their time and gone out to see a movie or something?  What a waste of a day.

these idiots aren't trying to solve the problem.  they are 100% vested in keeping the EUR together, and are channeling hank paulson. 

most people outside of the banking community in Europe remember life before the EUR.  certainly, going back to sovereign debt & soverign currencies is a better solution than allowing the cancerous tail to spread to the heart of the continent.  

breaking this thing up in a continential bankruptcy proceeding will be less problematic than having it implode...  the same thing being true in the US.

Euro at the cross roads and... in the cross fires of US Hfs on the rampage. Can't get more catastrophic than that for the world capitalistic system. Its the mad hatters party in the race to the bottom. Kill one, you kill em all, as they are so incestuous in bunga-bunga derivative play, its a real orgy of interconnected ass holes. 

Greece bashing and then Italian bashing, then French bashing of banks and...whooom, swooosh...all the banks fall, every where.

Tax on financial transactions?

So I pay a bill using my bank account  that is a financial transaction so it is going to be taxed? Hmmm, I will do everything with cash from now on and stuff the banksters and governments
