Presenting The SchizEUphrenia

Tyler Durden's picture


While men are from Mars, and women from Venus, it would appear Europe's major political leaders are on totally different orbits when it comes to the future of the European experiment. Though there are come commonalities there is one glaring divide - the speed of deficit reduction - as Mont-and-oy differ from Merkel quite vehemently.

Add Balkanization of the Eurozone and those circles will only meet under "Bail out Banks" until the rings are ripped apart into separate orbits.

EIB, lol! Over 500 bn loan book with 11,6 bn paid in capital. Already HUGE exposure to Spain and Italy. EIB is owned by EU countries so any incremental capital needed will have to come from EU countries. How Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece etc are going to pay if EIB board calls in extra capital?

EIB in 2 words: PONZI SCHEME

bubbleburster's picture

the thing about printing money that doesn't get enough positive acknowledgment is that a Government (like here in Canada) can spend huge amounts of money on desperately needed large cap projects (like in my home town) by helping your largest city get its subway line expanded.  It is money very well spent in my view and lets also remember that the thousands of jobs (both direct and downstream supply company jobs) all those working people pay taxes, which circulates back to the Federal government.  I have argued for years (without hard numbers to back it up and I'm sure some smart person has done a PhD on this) that every dollar that the government spends on capital projects is not entirely 1$ in extra national debt because as I say, a portion comes back in income tax and in Canada as harmonized sales tax on consumption. So, not absolutely all debts incurred by (at least my country) are badly created and spent.  Not by a large margin.  We have relatively superb highways, though our large cities have a gigantic unfunded infrastructure budget shortfall..  Some federal spending is wisely chosen, but not all. In Canada, recently, the Fed's were terribly embarressed at the leak of a document that showed our defence minister grossly underestimated the huge cost of buying a small fleet of fighter jets from the Yankees.  Some things do blow up in their faces.

Without a EU, this wouldn't have been a problem. Hollande would have been able to execute his ideas, Germany would continue theirs and we would be able to see what works and what doesn't. Thanks to the EU everyone is now forced in this union and the result will be catastrophic.

I'm not sure a solar system model is very descriptive of what's really going on in the EU. Maybe it's descriptive of the limited range of allowable narratives in political circles, e.g. indefinite growth is desirable, there are no physical limits to growth, debt can be increased indefinitely, etc, but that only goes to show the depth of the pathology of current political thought.

I read the Archdruid Report last night, and was pleasantly surprised to see Greer rip to shreds the idea of "progress," and all its associated pathologies. He posted a very interesting link from Paul Farrell writing for WSJ Marketwatch. What was interesting is that Farrell actually gets to the very root of the problem, and supports Greer's idea that there is a debate alright, but it is between people who are aware of reality and those who make models that support their ideology, but which have no relationship whatsoever to reality. i.e. economists in particular, and large swaths of the sleeping public.

Greer uses the term disconfirmation, by which he means when people like economists who make models and predictions based on them, turn out to be utterly wrong. At that point, they have to ignore or deny that their predictions and models don't describe reality, and then you start hearing idiotic statements like "nobody could have seen this coming." If Greer is right, and I think he is, we should expect to see much more of this in-your-face refusal to face central, undeniable facts. Should be plenty of material for Tyler and other truth-tellers with no end in sight.
