tremonti's resignation was announced by tremonti, wasn't it? or was the primiMini lying about the intentions of the finiMini? i guess i was just mistaken that the goobermint had announced he was leaving.
Too bad that the EFSF is as big a farce as the US Treasury.
hear the trumpets, hear the pipers.....
Zapatero, the new "generalissimo por la gracia y mandato de dios"
Bullish for the peseta?
i must say.. people who believe that their income taxes go to pay for roads and firemen and even socialist security are the most irresponsible naive retards its my misfortune to come across AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN... why? the proof that this is bullshit is now blaringly clear to anyone with a shred of common sense.. if, lets say, even one third of the population is working on the books transferring weekly or biweekly payments to the government, and the government uses that money to pay for these things, then a default is utterly irrelevant for everyone but the banks, right? they can continue to operate as long as people continue to work and buy shit, right? could even give grandma some food and peace and even pay for the freeloading folks who have been weened on the government tit, right? wrong! the obviousness of the truth is that all this would be possible if and only if this graduated communist income tax system actually did what the moronic basketball brain public thinks it does. unfortunately it doesnt.. how much more ridiculously obvious can it get with this doomsday default nonsense being hyped up.. even a child by process of eliminationcan surmise that income taxes go nowhere except to transfer payments to directly to pay interest on the fake made up debt owed to the banks alone. how dense do you have to be to even consider otherwise. when you mail a tax payment to the irs.. check who endorses the check.. i bet you anything its the FRBNY or another federal reserve branch. try it and find out.
Damn, those American Tea Parties strike again ;)
Putting soccer players up as collateral didn't work?
Three cheers for socialism...
So money is now moving across the Atlantic to the other clusterfuck? ES up today in the US as it becomes all too clear 'markets' don't really price in anything at all.
Have you seen EURCHF?
Europe will soon be able to be bailed out by a Swiss tramp's pocket change.
Sadly there are no Swiss tramps. They are mostly imported from Eastern Europe as they have an oversupply. SNB intervention in 3.. 2...
I don't suppose this has anything to do with the Mexican moves to re-monetise silver?
When Governments Shut Down...
OT: 2 Min Vid...Hilarious...
feels like things are unravelling fast again
doomsday trades are on
zh hedge is totally on the ball..where the hell are the dr dooms of the world?

secret volcano lairs
It isn't Doom until the 200 dma sings.
errr...squeals like the pig it is...
You couldn't ask for better entertainment if you scripted it. I don't know if I'm watching a comedy or a Greek tragedy , maybe both.
Spain's structural problems are much larger than pundits care to admit. The issue with high tax progressive style economies is that they greatly incent sending economic activity off the books, turning everyone into a tax cheat. Spain is worse than most. When a significant portion of the economy are scamming the system, everyone is hosed. This has been the problem in Greece for generations, and any travel behind the fallen Iron Curtain will tell you where that leads.
Like a friend who emigrated from Russia says, "It's difficult for any society to be productive when one hand is always out."
Spain and Italy going under in tandem would be the perfect dynamic duo for the EFSF.
"Our heartfelt condolences to all FX traders." Because all FX traders were long EUR? I don't get it. FX traders are thriving on big movments and volatility. Condolences would be in order if FX rates did not move. No volatility = no opportunity.
Isn't it hilarious how the House wasted an entire day and night fighting over votes for a bill that the Senate said they would not approve anyway...and Obammy said he would veto anyway? We have some indigent people leading us...no wonder we are ruined. Default is the only way to go, Tea Party Republican better stick to their guns and not vote for these bills....these clowns are trying to throw together a bill that amounts to nothing more than another bank bailout bill to save the crying bunch on Wall Street.
It is time, and has been time for a while, for Wall Street to take a bloodbath....
Spain needs Glass-Steagall, and their indignatos know it.
Here? We still talk about cutting or printing or taxing....the idiot republican, the idiot tea party, the idiot democrat way.
They are all equally stupid, and equally in the tank for the banksters. Some are just stupider than others.
Because according to the above the correct way to deal with fraud is printing, taxing, cutting, or some combo therein? Nope, those are for IDIOTS.
Glass-Steagall is the way.
